ThriftyTrekkieCosplayKellan and I are two geeks who are in-between conventions and are just worn out from the travel. In this episode, we compare notes on our favorite conventions… from STTC, SDCC, Phoenix Fan Fusion, Emerald City Comic Con, Soonercon and even a local library con. We also take a deep dive into why geeks get into things like classic TV sitcoms/dramedy and how it relates to our scifi fandom. Prepare for lots of cosplay talk.

Image-1

 

Jim Dirschberger is the creative director at Wide Right Games, the company behind Rifftrax: The Game. Jim and I discuss the game from a design perspective, but also from the perspectives of two fans who really, really want to see riffing in new and exciting ways.  The game is something of a spiritual sequel to the company’s earlier hit, What the Dub?

This was a really fun chat.  Jim talks about the VHS era of movie discovery, while I talked about my fondness for educational films and the one I remember most, The Magic House.  I’d also pointed out that Rifftrax: The Game seems to pull a lot from the SegaCD era of gaming, but done way better.

Rifftrax: The Game is available now on all major consoles, as well as Steam.  You can follow Wide Right Games on Twitter, Instagram, and on their YouTube Channel

This episode also introduces our collaboration with Sci-Fi Coffee.

HTP Episode 127 – SegaMasterTim

SegaMasterTim is a veteran of the Console Wars, having sat in the trenches at Australia’s Sega Hotline. Yes, not only does Tim have some great perspective of what gaming was like in the era of the Sega Master System, he also appreciates how the US and Australia had very different experiences with early gaming culture. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, not only do Tim and I get to talk gaming, but we extend those ideas and look at how our online socialization reflects the changes that started in the 80s.
