Siege Breaker Sessions: Trademark This!

Tm_logo

Trademarking something isn’t new. Back when the NBA had its first back to back to back champion the term Three-peat was coined and trademarked. However, when it comes to simple words or phrases that many gamers may use in their streams or videos it can and add become a hot topic with a lot of anger.

We dive into the topic of both Sony and the Fine Brothers trying to trademark terms that could have had a big effect on many gamers. We also talk about some of our finest gaming achievements from days past and Rizim gives us another one of his famous rants.

With E3 2014 next week we decided to talk about what we were looking forward to most for our trip out to L.A and to reminisce on our previous trips to the expo. There is a lot to E3 besides what you see on the net or videos and it is definitely something you should experience live if you have the chance and if you plan to be out there look out for us. We will be recording everything to be featured on our future shows are articles. For now, I hope you enjoy the show and as always we appreciate any comments or feedback.

OGX Episode 2

OGX Episode 2

So it is true, crazy is easier to do that serious or sane for that matter. OGX is back with a new episode, much shorter because we know you can’t stand us that much and we had to go see Game of Thrones which was awesome by the way. This week we talked about companies more concerned about bringing out DLC then fixing bugs and topics such as which video game food would you eat in real life and which video game world would you send your worst enemy.

OGX Episode 1

OGX Episode 1

When you deal with the stresses of work, school and just life sometimes you need some time to nerd it up. For the most part, us gamers do this in a game, but believe it or not, a lot of us are social creatures as well.

We launched OGX to show fans of Obsolete Gamer what we really are like, raw and uncut. It’s vulgar, it’s geeky and it’s certainly is NOT political correct, but we do hope it’s entertaining. Now while this should is filled will silliness we also ask some serious questions and have some good discussions on topics such as the future of MMO’s specifically WildStar and Everquest Next. Beyond that we talk about such silly topics as which video game character would make the best wife. (Article on that coming soon)

So here is Episode 1 of The Obsolete Gamer Experience, you can find it on our OGX Show Page or you can watch it along with all our other current original programming on O.G. Original T.V. Channel Let us know what you think.

The Obsolete Gamer Show #35: The Clip Show

Florida Supercon 2013

Well it is a clip show, but not in the sense where we reply old stuff you already heard. We have been a bit busy at OG HQ as of late and with that and Florida Supercon we did not have a change to do our normal podcast. However, we did get a few interviews from the con and have added them to this show. First up the show features a little behind the scenes when we were recording the video for our appearance on 1337 Lounge live. It was fun doing it so we decided to add a little of our prep for it.

Next up part one in our audio version of the Gamer Parent series where we talk with gamers who are now parents. This gives a good insight into being both a gamer and a parent and we hope to add more interviews in the near future. Finally we bring you two interviews from Florida Supercon. The first one is an extended version of our interview with Stealth Mobile Gaming and our interview with Florida Arcade & Pinball Exposition. We will be back very soon with our normal podcast so make sure to check that out.
