Episode 77: Hey! Listen! #10 - E3 Reactions




Today we finally get around to recap our reactions to this year’s E3, recorded just after the annual videogame conference this year. I give my impressions about Xbox news, Michael gets into Playstation news, and of course we both wax rhapsodic about the new Zelda game, complete with speculation about the game and the new NX system it will apparently be released on. Lots of good stuff this year!

One thing we didn’t get to talk about was the game Guinevere and the Fallen King, which Callum Boothman, library patron and son of DFL staff member Kirstin Boothman went to this year’s E3 to present. Definitely check it out on their website and Facebook page!

Note: the term I was trying to think of in relation to the Fallout 4 Contraptions DLC was Rube Goldberg-type machines. Love those!

We hope you’ll join us next time for more great geek and gamer-related reminiscing and discussions. And check out the new adult video games we have available to check out at the Duxbury Free library -- including some of the newest and most popular Xbox One and Playstation 4 games!

Episode 76: Pokemon Go and the Library



Everything you always wanted to know about Pokemon Go and why people are coming to the library to play. Jess and Beth, who are big fans, explain it all to Suzanne, who is not very familiar with Pokemon at all.

This is the Time article we mention about a man who has a house that is a Pokemon Go Gym.
And this is an article about the creator of Pokemon.

This episode we get all spoilery about Game of Thrones season 6, including our favorite storylines, characters, and dramatic events from the entire season. And of course, now that the show is completely off books, we get into plenty of speculation about what’s to come in the last two (shorter) seasons left of the show.

Episode 74: Hey! Listen! #8 - Harvest Moon




Today we talk about one of our favorite franchises: Harvest Moon (now called Story of Seasons - and we get into why the series name changed in this episode). This classic farm sim game paved the road for tons of very popular games, so we go back and review the series from the beginning, including what made the series so unique and what made the individual games so awesome. This is a criminally underrated game series, so hopefully we do it justice and make a good case for why everyone should at least give it a shot!
