Geekly Roundup for May 10th - Superheroic Mother's Day Edition!
This week on Geekly Roundup, Mark, Jon and Mike discuss 3D printed D&D Monsters, which turns into a discussion about why Fantasy doesn't seem to be able to break through to the mainstream. Then they discuss a hacker getting banned in Guild Wars 2, which turns into a discussion on continuing to consume media you hate, and why we do that. THEN they discuss Agent Carter's return, which turns into a discussion on the availability of TV, piracy, and binge-watching vs experiencing TV week by week! It's a world of fascinating tangents this week!
GW 2 Hacker Gets Stripped, Humiliated
This past week, Guild Wars 2 devs played a little bit of extra punishment on a hacker who'd annoyed everyone in the game with a bit of fun at their expense. And then players freaked out, as they're wont to do.
3D Printing the Monter Manual
Reddit user mz4250 has been spending months carefully modeling the D&D Monster Manual, one monster at a time, and 3D printing it on Shapeways. Wizards of the Coast sent him a DMCA takedown notice, and he reached out to see if there was anything he could do. What happens next will shock you! (Just kidding, they let him keep doing it on a different site, one they had an agreement with.)
Agent Carter is Renewed for a Second Season!
Everybody party! One of our favorite shows from last year is coming back for a second go round. On the podcast, we discuss this in depth, including why Mike wants to marry Agent Carter. Not Hayley Atwell, Peggy Carter.
