This is Geek Positive for Monday, May twenty-first!

This week, a whole lot of time is spent discussing the Facebook IPO and the recent marriage of Mark Zuckerberg. Best of luck to him and Mrs. Zuckerberg!

We also spoke at length about a number of other things, including Jack’s experience of Max Payne 3, Breki’s experience of Diablo 3, the upcoming Blade Runner Sequel, the teaser trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie, Skyfall, and another game being delayed to Q1 of 2013. Is there a conspiracy? I say … maybe.

The musical feature Bill Bailey’s song about Loneliness, Love and Loss. Enjoy!

Instanews was another one of Breki's attempts to create a tech news podcast in the long chain of iterative podcasts that includes Geek Positive, CSICON Radio, The Brainstorm and Geekdays. It ran for 129 episodes, initially co-hosted by Jack Marshall and, in the final run of episodes, by Teppo Tastic.

Both Petter Mårtensson and Arkenor Oakshadow featured as regular guests for a segment known as The Deathmatch of Death and More Death, a ladder-style competition that pit heroes and villains from popular culture against each other. Petter and Arkenor would argue the case for their randomly picked hero of the week, and listeners would vote via the website.
