Geek Syndicate


In 2006, the Geek Syndicate was born. And who came roaring out but a pair of crazy-yet-loveable geeks by the names David “Monts” Monteith and Barry “Nuge” Nugent. Producing a weekly (well most of the time) podcast celebrating and commenting all aspects of geek life GS is one of the longest running geek related podcasts in the UK. It’s critically acclaimed, irreverent, touching, intellectual, nonsensical, fairly drunken, incredibly sexy, hilarious…er…and stuff.

Dissecting Worlds turns it's attention to the world of Computer Games and in particular Mass Effect (thanks Wedgedoc for the suggestion.)
 
On the way they discuss the many influences and parallels on Spectres namely James Bond, Wild West Marshals, the operative from Serenity, the Jedi amongst others with nods to Dredd, The Wire, X-files and Mancuso FBI.
 
See the blood boil and the rapiers get drawn at in a sidetrack into Roger Moores period as 007!
 
Wonder at the parallels to the Citadel Council of the UN Secuirty Council pernament members & the Congress System.
 
Gape at the consideration of Computer Games as fiction anyway and how their world building differs from books, flms, comics and between gaming genres. 
 
Feedback on the forums for perference but failing that email dissectingworlds@yahoo.co.uk or twitter @clarkythecruel (kehaar) or matt @the Grampus.
 
Oh the book mentioned is Keeper of Corn, Binder of Bone found here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Binder-Bone-Keeper-Corn/dp/B003ZHVH6G/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1283379704&sr=1-1   "
