I know it’s a bit late, but I’ve been honing my sound engineering skills — which is to say I sat down and watched some tutorials. Each week, I’ve been trying to make the podcast better, and I think this is our best sounding podcast yet!
That said, the fellows at OMGeek had a lot to talk about.

Our news segment ends with some opinions concerning a survey conducted by GameStop. According to a two-day poll of about 400 customers, GameStop claims 92% of video game players have games sitting on the shelf that could be turned into a potential $200. We discuss what we think about GameStop’s buy, sell, and trade options.
Our main topic is filled with news, but it’s the kind of news that comes from Disney’s D23 show.
