Since lawmakers were smart enough to repeal that stupid law that shut down Amazon Associates’ California-based digital storefronts, I’m pleased to announce that our Geekbox Amazon store is back up and running! I’ve given it a big update — so if there’s any big upcoming games you’re looking forward to, it’s probably on the list! You can also get plenty of quality comics, DVDs, and Blu-rays (including cheap DVDs for upcoming Comedy Button commentary tracks!) through our storefront, and every purchase directly supports all the crazy stuff we do.
So, in the immortal words of The Legend of Zelda’s shopkeeper, buy somethin’ will ya!
Fans of the GameSpy Debriefings, rejoice: Scott Bromley, Brian Altano, Anthony Gallegos, and myself (along with new castmate Max Scoville, of Destructoid fame) are starting a new podcast in the near future, titled The Comedy Button. Because he says it better than I can, you really should go read Scott’s pitch for the show on our Kickstarter page, where we’ve already exceeded our funding goal in less than two hours. Basically, it’s the Debriefings, but independent — and we’ve got a lot of sweet incentives for those of you who are keen on donating. And when we get the show off the ground, you’ll be hearing about it right here on the Geekbox!
So, what are you waiting for!? Head on over to Kickstarter, see what the show is about, and help us push the Comedy Button. BRAAAP BRAAAAPP!!!
