Hello there! We submit for your approval the Elder-Geek Game Club, a new Podcast here on Elder-Geek.com. We started this show over on Shamoozal.com and had so much fun working with Randy that we decided to officially move it over to the E-G Network.
If you’re new to the Game Club here’s how it works. The show works in 2 week cycles. We’ll post a poll with two games (usually a retro, classic or indie title) to the web site. We ask our listeners to vote for the game that they want us to play and discuss. More importantly we want them to vote for the game they want to play as well.
Over the next 10-12 days Randy, Phil and I will play the game and put together our thoughts. Then every other Tuesday we meet up and discuss the game for the podcast. We also like to include some history about the game and some samples of music.
This time around we played Shatterhand, a game that came late in the NES life cycle.
So please give it a listen, and leave us some feedback! You can also send your feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, don’t forget to vote for the game in the next Game Club. The Poll is below (Ikaruga or Radiant Silvergun) and closes on Saturday 9/10 at 6:00 PM EST. Ikaruga can currently be found on XBLA for 800MSP and can also be found on Nintendo Gamecube. Radiant Silvergun on the other hand will be available on XBLA on September 14th, or if you’re really hardcore can be played on a Sega Saturn. Vote on the game you’d like to play along with us and be sure to leave your thoughts on the winner before we record our next show on September 20th.
