Tetris - 054

The history of this week’s subject is a murky tale of copyright law, Cold War drama, and psychological manipulation. It’s one of the most popular games of all time - Tetris!

Caleb crams as much as solid information possible into this week’s episode, Brandon tells a fun story about how his parents are thieves, and Alex has something to say about everything (as usual). Colin is out for the week, but he’ll be back!

Cryptogeekology is a big sad trash mess because Alex managed to save over his original recording of the game section - but luckily Heather joined them for a second round with a new subject. Let’s see if they can maintain the winning streak!

The Crow - 052

The Crow is so much more than the film that took Brandon Lee from us.  It’s dark, grungy atmosphere set in a Detroit cesspool is the stage for a wild revenge tale that was inspired by the author’s personal loss.  

Alex resurrects this action classic as Geeksquatch hunts down all of the lesser known aspects of the film.  The gang runs down the film’s comic book source material, plot, special effects and cast of characters.  And, of course you’ll get the real story behind Brandon Lee’s death.


Video games are the Cryptogeekology: 20 Questions category this week.  Alex is on his way to stumping the squad, but there’s a glimmer of hope thanks to some knowledge nuggets that Caleb pulls out of thin air.

Mega Man X - 045

The original Mega Man games had a great run on the original Nintendo, but the series had gotten stale.  Capcom had maxed out their creativity over six annualized games and, given the processing power that was available on the NES, the franchise was due for an evolution.  Enter Mega Man X.  Released a few years into the Super Nintendo life cycle, Mega Man X lived up to the expectations of longtime fans and is still considered one of the best mega man games ever created.

Caleb takes you deep into the greatness.  The Geeksquatch crew dive into the game’s lore, evolved gameplay, and fan community that took the Mega Man universe to the next level.

The host then tries to stump the cast in the movie category during Cryptogeekology: 20 questions.  Stick around if you think you know the (nerd) classics.
