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!

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…

Pokemon Sword And Shield: All The New Hotness!

Hello everyone! I’m excited to return to talking about Pokemon yet again!

With the very recently released Nintendo direct, all about the new entry Pokemon games, we have been given a butt-load of new info regarding what to expect in these Nintendo Switch titles including gyms, the new gimmick, legendaries, and of course other new Pokemon! Let us dive in! Read the rest of this entry

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!

Pokemon Sword/Shield: Is Armor Evolution Mode Real?

Mewtwo_in_armor

Hello everyone, once again we have to discuss Pokemon Sword and Shield. There are countless theories, leaks, and rumors regarding these games, ranging from the amount of new Pokemon there will be to what the potential enemy factions will be like. But one theory seems to stand above the rest, one that outstandingly would make some sense in all of this. That theory is in regards to the armored evolution rumor, where existing Pokemon receive some type of gimmicky stone/power-up in order to evolve further into a newly armored version of said Pokemon, very similarly to Mega evolutions. While this may seem crazy at first, this post will list all of the reasons why this may very well be factual. Read the rest of this entry

Pokemon Top 6’s Will Return Eventually…

tumblr_static_16uqypgvuhr4csggwso0wswcw

Hello everyone! Well we’ve certainly been streaming a bit these past couple of weeks, but through all of this I just had to sit and wonder if I should ever go back to making posts again. Not to say that I’d stop forever, but what type of posts can be engaging enough for me to both do and frequently do at once? I soon started to think about those Pokemon top 6 lists I would occasionally do now and then, picking our personal favorite kinds of Pokemon within particular types and such. And it got me wanting to both continue and even redo these posts again!

I am currently trying to see how well handled it is, but eventually there will both be video and post list that will hopefully come out alongside each one another, it may be a longer wait but if it is handled well it’ll be worth it!

I’ll possibly start with redoing the BUG type list, both to update some reasons for classic picks as well as changing the list since new generations of Pokemon and stuff has happened since this list was made.

Be sure to check back for future content!
