Just over a week ago, I mentioned that I had never sat down and watched Naruto the whole way through. It’s strange to call myself an anime fan without actually having watched much of the orange ninja, so I thought it’d be kind of fun to watch it all, share my thoughts on the show and get your thoughts in response. I have to thank the people who spoke to me after that article, as ultimately I learned a lot more about the show than I expected. Also, thanks to those of you who offered encouragement for my sanity, which may be just as important. Here are my thoughts of the first 11 episodes. As the series is so old, these articles may have some spoilers.
Every week, I am delivering two episodes of Stonekeep via YouTube. However, if that was all I was doing, it’d not be very interesting, would it? To switch it up a bit, I’m also working on a GeekOut Plays Theme Hospital series, where each episode, I will try to do all of a good portion of a level. These are being done once a week and the next episode will go up on Saturday, along with this weeks episodes of Stonekeep.
If you’ve never heard of Theme Hospital, then you’re in for a treat. It’s an old game made by the British video game company Bullfrog. At the time, Bullfrog were on top of the world, with insanely popular titles such as Dungeon Keeper, Theme Park, Magic Carpet and of course Theme Hospital. This game was considered one of the greatest games to come out of the UK at the time, which is high praise indeed as the UK was full of great developers, such as Team17 and later Jagex.
Episode 1 – Zany Doc!
In this episode of GeekOut Plays Theme Hospital:
- I tell a doctor how zany he is.
- There’s a shortage of good quality doctors and nurses from the get go.
- My doctors pop a few heads and re-inflate them.
- We issue an invitation to a VIP.
- A year in my first hospital passes…
- … And I complete level 1!
Episode 2 – I Suffer Slack Tongue
This time on GeekOut Plays Theme Hospital:
- We buy a second building.
- We put down plenty of seats and drinks machines.
- Caretakers get frustrating.
- I send a patient home for having a more slack tongue than me.
- A year and three quarters pass…
- …. And I complete level 2!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s been a long time coming but roll up for the first ever GeekOut podcast! A crazy compilation of silly discussions on a random subject for the week. For this week, we decided to discuss Indie Games and how they have come from the Hobbyist scene. We speak about the modding community and how it has been instrumental in the development of new and exciting indie developers.
Huge thanks to Andrew from Just PC Things for taking part in our inaugural podcast. We hope to hold more of these, as we had a lot of fun just talking about a subject we were all interested in. Apologies for the sudden drop in quality halfway through the podcast – This is due to the fact that I had to move from my PC to my laptop. So, protip number one for all of you who want to get involved with podcasting: Get a good microphone. Shocking, isn’t it?
Want to get involved? Drop us an email. We’ll discuss how we can get you into our podcasts.
WARNING: Hold your horses there kiddo, this certainly ain’t a kid friendly anime. I’d recommend watching this if you’re cool with sexual content, but it didn’t seem to get too explicit… But the implicit suggestions were definitely all there, so you have been thoroughly warned!
Another slow week for nerd-news (unless we’ve missed something), but here’s our regular rundown of the stories that caught our attention this week. Anything we missed? Let us know in the comments down below.
