Tagcast News Will Be Returning! + Geeks In A Dungeon Update!

Geeks in a Dungeon cover two

Hello everyone! Just another quick update on some things moving forward. Once again I would like to remind everybody that we’re still very much occupied with life and what comes with it, however a few things are happening sooner than we thought. This even includes the majority vote decision of bringing back Tagcast news!

For those who are unaware or don’t remember, Tagcast News was an off-brand of our second incarnation Podcast series that mainly focused on gaming news. Geoff and Sherman were the primary hosts, while I appeared once or twice. It was a Skype communicated series that was later, immediately at times, put on our Youtube channel each and every Sunday night. News from the prior week was compiled together and we picked out the most interesting or relevant ones. It was halted indefinitely due to issues of timing and interest in discussions.

The newly returned Tagcast news series will pretty much be the same as far as I’m aware. It will once again have Sherman and Geoff as hosts with possibly me and other random guests. Not sure when this will happen proper, but I’ll certainly need to find my webcam soon!

In other news, there is some Geeks in a Dungeon information worth telling!

geeky dungeon 2019

 

Geeks in a Dungeon is still very much returning in a rebooted series that still features the same characters and lore that has been previously mentioned before.

  • Sherman will return as the Tiefling “Havoc”, as well as the Dungeon Master
  • Geoff is back as the wolf-raised Dragonborn, “Thandarr Balumhet”
  • I’ll be back as the Dragonborn “Cordak Lacerta”
  • And Taylor is back as the third Dragonborn mage named “Romulus Blackfire”
  • Unfortunately Josh is no longer here to play his Halfling character, “Theivey Mcthiefface”, but that character will likely return in time once Josh returns in a couple years.
  • It’s also possible that other known characters will return as well, either as cameos or still prevalent players.

The original recordings are now considered the “OVA” series meant to act like an alternate universe (this may even come into play with the core series in the future…).

In fact, there is still some episodes of the OVA series that haven’t been released yet. And as far as I’m aware Sherman still plans on releasing these final few OVA episodes. If my memory serves me right, there is at least three more episodes left to release that even includes a sixth player that hasn’t been in the already released episodes! Hopefully Sherman can finish editing these faster so that everyone can enjoy them!

The new series on the other hand will be reintroduced when it finally starts to come out, this includes a new cover art and other promotional things. There is even plans to make alongside the core series an episodic issue comic as well as video formats of the Geeks in a Dungeon audio, speaking of which…

The previously mentioned video that I was working on will eventually be released, sorry for the forever delay. I honestly thought I accidentally lost it again but have once again found it and plan on working on it yet again. At this point though it may be worth mentioning that this will be the only video of its kind as of now.

The video has been in production for a long time, and it’s a revision of the first episode of the now OVA series, so I’ll probably not make the other episodes in a similar matter… At least not entire episodes. The new series associated episodes will be in a completely different manner and have no real similarity to the OVA one.

Again, this will begin as soon as Sherman is able to finalize both his lore and episodic events. And we must also wait for when the four of us are available to get together at a convenient time.

Until next time readers…

Pseudo Update: We’re not dead!

GBP 2019

Hello guys, and once again it has been a while. Once again life has taken a large bite and we must act to it accordingly.

Taylor, surprisingly enough, has been literally bitten by a Bat and is now undergoing rabies shots. and no this isn’t a joke! Sherman is juggling his job and his headache problems, while Geoff is busy preparing to be a father and is in the process of finding a new place for his family to live. As for me? I’ve been busy dealing with freelance projects as well as packing things up for the new place, this is on top of finishing a summer class and finding an adequate job with beneficial pay. so yeah, life is busy…

But what does this mean for GeekBeerz? Well despite the continuous wait our plans are still mostly unchanged. Taylor will get back to streaming eventually, I’ll be starting in the coming months (hopefully), and even Geoff will be dropping in on his own streaming events at some point.

The main podcast will indeed still return. At this point I sound like a broken record, but promises will be met. However, other podcasts might be delayed indefinitely until all four of us can settle on the when’s and how’s.

Anyways, that’s all I have to say for now, hopefully the wait won’t be too long so hang in there!

Outlandish Opinions: Types Of Movies That Critics Should NEVER Review

Inkedgodzilla lah

Hello there, I’m back with another random post, but it’s one that has been bugging me for some time actually.

So with the upcoming release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which is a sequel to 2014’s Godzilla American reboot film,  I was thinking of many ideas for posts to write in regards to celebrating the release of what will assuredly be a highly entertaining film. But then I started to think about the obvious variations of critic reviews that this next movie might receive and it ultimately left me in a sigh.

Now granted I could be very surprised and this film can receive massive praise, but that rarely happens with a movie of this type of caliber. So I figured I would lend my opinion out there, no matter how stupid it may seem, and hopefully somebody will agree with me… Read the rest of this entry

Top 5 Franchises That Eventually Became Successful Game Franchises

malak_kotor.0

Hello guys, I decided to write a fun random post for once. So you know how sometimes games based on a movie, comic, or other things tend to fail to meet their mark? Well sometimes there is a diamond found in the rough, and fortunately I was able to bring about many diamonds for this post. Here are games that successfully broke through the “franchise-inspired curse”, some may be super obvious while others may come as a surprise. Read the rest of this entry

GeekBeerz Podcast! (GBP) May Be Recorded On Fridays Weekly… [Quick Update]

GBP 2019

Hello everyone! Just a quick update. We may have come up with an official time for when we will record our revival podcast series weekly! If things go in our favor, it’ll be Friday nights.

Why do I say all of this on a post? well because if we were to eventually be inclined to stream our Podcast, we would like to let people know when this would likely be done. Granted, streaming would not happen for some time (we may have a “base” for recording sessions, free of obstructing noise and folly, but it may take some time to set it up in our favor!).

Hopefully, this can get started real soon. Perhaps this Friday can officially be our start date? nobody knows for sure. There is also no word yet on when the other Podcasts will be out, but I’m occasionally playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice of the Taylor Tom Games Or Die Twitch channel at very random times. If you want to see a silent stream of me failing hard then go check that nonsense out!

Until next I post…

Geeks In A Dungeon Might Get A Soft Reboot…

Geeks in a Dungeon

Hey guys. So it’s no secret that Geeks In A Dungeon has been on a halt for quite some time, but there is good reason for it.

While there are still a good number of episodes to release, the last we left off the series we actually had six players involved. Unfortunately on top of getting every person back to record, which is already a challenging thing, there have been life-involved moments that have drastically changed the course for most of us.

As mentioned in a prior post, Josh has left us for two years to serve a church mission. Josh played the character Thievy in our adventure and became a primary protagonist, which makes it hard to continue without him. Our other player has also left on a mission some time way before Josh left, he played a character that has not yet released in the currently available episodes but he too played an important role. Aside from absent members, we have all been busy with things such as jobs, marriage, and other important duties.

Now of course I am not the driving force for Geeks In A Dungeon, that would be our very own Sherman. He too has had some time consuming duties that have resulted in both the delay of continuing this series and even editing currently recorded material. To top it all off, his computer was recently having some problems. As of now it has been fixed but it’s still worth noting.

Now Sherman has that driving desire to keep on making Geeks In A Dungeon going, but he too has recognized the complex situation of continuing where we left off. So it is possible that a soft reboot will be in the works soon.

If this happens, we will keep our same characters and our same personalities and traits, but the adventure would restart from scratch and perhaps even be revised or revamped, depending on how Sherman goes on handling it. Despite people like Josh being absent, his character may still appear in an integral role in the story in some way, although that’s not entirely certain.

Now the prior episodes will most likely continue to be available, but will probably be alternately titled as “separate timeline” adventures or as pilot tests, think simple OVA’s for an anime that is similar but not as defined in context or as long as the main anime series.

When will this happen? Who knows. It’s entirely up to Sherman to determine that and to get us all back together for more grand adventures! I’m just here to give an update on the situation.

Thanks for reading!

Top Ideas For Transformers Spin-Off Films!

bb11

With the surprisingly awesome movie Bumblebee, we can safely confirm the start of a new universe of films, and by that I mean the reboot audiences finally wanted!

Presumably all these upcoming films, known and unknown, will eventually build up to another proper “Transformers” titled film. But until such a time, we will likely be getting various spin-off films regarding origins or simple adventures of certain characters throughout the known Transformers world. But which one’s deserve to get their own film? Here are some of our picks for who, or what, we think could work! Read the rest of this entry
