The Geekly Oddcast 31 - The Muppets Take History (They Need The Credits)

June 10, 2018

We here at the Brothers Herman are big muppet fans.  You might be able to tell from our YouTube logo... and the puppets in our old videos... and that one time we snuck a bunch of puppets into Disney World.  So tonight Tom decided to go through the history of the Muppets and some of the many puppeteers they've inspired.

Panel: Thomas Herman, Nick Hoffman

The Geekly Oddcast 29 - What We Don’t Miss in Old RPGs

May 11, 2018

Classic RPGs will forever be in our hearts, and we still play them on occasion.  But when you look closer, some elements of the old video games belong firmly in the dustbin of history, and today we are going to take a look at a few of them.  So be prepared for the horrors of gaming ages gone by.

Odder Worlds - Night’s Black Agents - Noises in the Static 2

May 4, 2018

The aliens are here, and they are Australian.  Or are they from further afield?  Australians aren't usually so flammable after all.  Our crack team of goverment operatives have stumbled onto something far stranger than they were suspecting.  Will they find Saresh? Will they get to the bottom of things?  Will they survive their encounter with the land down under?

The Geekly Oddcast 28 - Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

April 26, 2018

It's been a while since we looked at Final Fantasy.  This game is the reason why.  It's a story of generic elements, little to no characterization, and a plot you can see starlight through.  The Final Fantasy game with training wheels: Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.

Odder Worlds - Let the Experiments Begin

April 20, 2018

Slight delay on Night's Black Agents, but in the meantime we've been working on a new idea behind the scenes.  Part or Odder Worlds is forcing games to handle situations they weren't written for.  We're going to take that one step further.   So in this episode we are going to announce what we've been up to as well as let you see some of our brainstorming on the idea.  The working title is Odder Worlds Experiments. 

Panel: David Herman, Jarod Cerf

The Geekly Oddcast 27 - Time to Pitch Prequels Nobody Wants

April 13, 2018

Hollywood has done it to death, reboots and sequels and even prequels. Going back to George Lucas and his prequels, now X-Men has three prequels. Monsters Inc has a prequel, even a New Hope has a Prequel ot itself. Albeit the last two were fantastic, it doesn't change the situation. Prequels are becoming the new reboots. So we thought let's pitch the prequels that no one would ever want. Please give it a listen and let us know. This was a fun episode to record and we hope you enjoy!

The Geekly Oddcast 26 - A Timely Wrinkle

March 30, 2018

Our experiments with tessering went wrong and we are a day late with this episode, but thats okay because in it are the secrets to effortless travel between the stars.  That or our thoughts on how we would approach making this classic story if we were the ones writing and directing it.  Yes, it's definitely that second one.
