The best part of recording Universal Geek is getting a chance to talk about so many of the things I love talking about. That is the essence of geekdom, isn’t it? Loving stuff so much that you can’t not talk about it with your friends?  This week we settle in talk more about people’s bizarre luddite reaction to Google Glass, services that create fake tweet screenshots, and games. Lots of games. This is a very game centric episode.  Strap on your joystick and hit the start button!
