For those interested, she’s also a badass quilt-maker — check it out! Anyhow, enjoy the show… and if you’re in Boston for PAX East this weekend, keep your eyes peeled for Geekbox co-hosts Karen Chu and Alice Liang.

The Geekbox: Episode 105

This week, we talk about Demon’s Souls again for the third podcast in a row, because — OH YEAH — I beat it. Honestly, I don’t think it’s as difficult as all the initial reviews made it out to be, and I regret having been scared away from it at the time. Anybody who likes RPGs and missed out should take it for a spin, as it’s a fantastic game. Anyway, that’s enough babbling — enjoy the episode!
