Tagcast News Will Be Returning! + Geeks In A Dungeon Update!
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!
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!
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!
Mega Mega Update: Two Twitch Channels, Podcasts Schedules, And More!
Hello everyone, it has been a while since we have done an update to what we have in the works! This also includes all the changes that have recently been set! Read the rest of this entry
All Of Our Upcoming Projects
Hello everyone! It’s basically a broken record at this point to say that we have all been busy or occupied by worldly and lively matters as of late. Again, we stress that things will eventually return to form for us, and to prove this here are a few things in the works: Read the rest of this entry
Geeks In A Dungeon Might Get A Soft Reboot…
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!
Happy New Year! – Update
Hello everyone! It has been far too long. There is no avoiding the obvious subject of discussion, we have been pretty quiet for some time and have failed to complete our Soulsborne month in September.
Things got crazy busy, more than usual, and as a result we’ve had to drop what we’ve wanted to do for this site in order to deal with these situations. For those who were even a little bit interested in the Soulsborne posts, we apologize.
For myself, this was the hardest semester of college classes I have ever done. My complete focus had to be on getting these classes completed. Sherman was trapped in a devastating job with ridiculous hours which affected timing for doing pretty much anything social (thankfully, he has found a better job since then). Josh has been prepping for a mission, and will be leaving us for the two year adventure in March. We hope to do some things with him before he leaves. And our very own Geoff has gotten married, and ever since then he has been busy searching for a new home with his better half.
And as for Taylor? Well, he’s still doing Taylor stuff!
Joking aside, he has been busy as well which has tarnished our revival of Taylor/Tom Games Or Die, but perhaps we will see it return soon.
the year of 2018 has certainly been a painful and aching year for most of us, but we hope to make proper use of the new year ahead of us! Geeks In A Dungeon is still gonna come out with new episodes in the near future, you can think of the new episodes as the start of “season two” in a sense. The video adaptation of the series is still being worked on, the obvious delay kind of shelved it but thankfully there should now be more time given to getting it done. We have also been working shopping how the revival of GBP is going to be done. We are currently in the process of deciding what segments, music, and what new location we’ll be using that will be beneficial and convenient to all of us.
Thanks for reading if you did, and we hope you continue the journey with us into the new year…
The Ultimate Update
Hello guys, as promised I am here to give an update on what’s to come in the following months / the remainder of the year. While we have taken a long hiatus from the site, we are still conducting ideas and plans in the background. I think this list would go better if we were to split it into different categories… Read the rest of this entry
Me Versus The Many Projects – Progress Report
Hello again, and once more I am here to update you all on what has been going down. Surprise! The Geeks In A Dungeon vid is still being worked on and heavily edited. It might take a couple more weeks before it is officially released, but I promise that it’ll be worth it.
Because I am overbooked with many projects to get done, both for college and freelancing, I am forced to turn all my attention on those things as opposed to the video due to those projects having legitimate deadlines. I hope any waiting can understand the predicament.
I the meantime, there should be a God Of War related post up soon, possibly something involving our lead up to the Avengers Infinity War film, and hopefully a second Ultimate Hate (and Love) relationship editorial. You can read the first one, which is about Transformers, HERE.
Well, until the next whatever…
Video Nearly There Mates – Progress Report
Hello guys, everything is just fine and dandy here. I’m sure most of us want to pluck our brains out and droop to the floor and forget the tension and stress, but other than that we’re pretty good.
Joking aside, we are all relatively busy with our own separate predicaments. Geoff is busy at work and stuff, Sherman hates his job and is overly working, Taylor broke himself yet again, and I’m in the process of trying to finish multiple art projects. So yeah, I guess all you get in this post is more and more explanations and excuses with little to no substance.
Do not fret though, the Geeks In A Dungeon video is still gonna happen and I’m sure some sort of episode of something will release in no time (we’ll see who’s the faster editor soon enough).
Welp, until next post…
Geeks In A Dungeon Video Series Half Way Done – Progress Report
Hello everyone, I figured I would give some sort of update. This is so I can keep people in the know-how of what’s been going on, but also as a way to keep posts happening here.
This project, for what it’s worth, is BIG! It’s certainly bigger and harder to do than anticipated, which is why it has not come out as of yet. But hopefully, hopefully indeed, it’ll be released by this weekend (the first episode anyways).
In terms of episode five for the regular podcast version? That is up to Sherman to decided when it’s released. We are reaching a point where more episodes have to be recorded, but some of our members have not been around to give us this opportunity. But we have a feeling that soon this will all be resolved.
Welp, there’s the progress report. Have a fun day everyone…
