Geek Speak 21: Bargain Snake vs Virgin Unicorn

Hi… Oh, hello there! Give us one sec, we need some caffeine! Welcome to the post Extra Life episode of BRB Geek Speak. All of us are just a little bit – an understatement of the year – tired after a 24 hour gaming marathon. Lauren is a bit sleepy, Alex is loosing her voice and Mon is… where is Mon?! Don’t worry, we were prepared and managed to secure an amazing guest in Josh from Oh No! Video Games! Nothing can stop us from geeking about all the geeky things in this geekyverse! MUHAHA! Please join us this week as Lauren, Josh and Alex ramble on about:

  • Weird Find(s) Of The Week – Star-Lord Dance Off gif and Excel Saga anime

    Great show ladies and sir! I think “poke-Monica” needs to answer the pokeball question because reasons such as her nickname.

    I’d like to give Waterstones an SG Brown style F U: went to see if they had The Palace Job before waiting for my appt and they didn’t have it *shakes fist*

  2. Ceasis

    Yeah, I thought it might not be there but thought I may as well give it a shot. It sounds really intriguing and not just for the unicorn XD read a lot of heavier stuff lately so sounds like a good choice to go for! Badass female leads are the best ^^
