Geekly Roundup: Ethics in Podcasting Edition

AoGRU 32

This week on the Geekly Roundup Podcast, Mike, Lauren and Super Double Guest Star Robert discuss Ricky Ortiz coming out as transgender to the fighting game community, ethical experiments on authority and brains and stuff, Firewatch and whether we put enough value on the games we play, and whether you should stream cable TV now that the FCC will allow you! Wow, that was a massive run-on sentence! Enjoy!


Lots of THE FUTURE this week, with robot prosthetics, virtual reality, space tourism and a fascinating new method of data storage that could literally hold all of human history, possibly forever.


Still lots and lots of Deadpool this week – which is not surprising, considering he had the highest grossing movie in America for the last three weeks. But some interesting stories in here too. Including the shocking revelation that there are people who want a sequel to Spawn.


Lots of good tabletop and vidya game news this week – including a remake of KOTOR that I hope to be able to play one day, and a fantastic documentary that shows what goes on behind the scenes of acclaimed developer Double Fine. And – should you get your money back for a game if you’ve finished it and enjoyed it? We weighed in on the podcast, but Polygon has a great article, too.

In addition to being a successful film director and editor, he loves video games, movies, comic books, board games, and his wife and cat. He’s been friends with Jarys for over a decade now, and they started hosting a radio show together on college that became the genesis for the Ace of Geeks Podcast.
