Hello again and welcome to another glorious week! Today we’re talking about Monster Hunter World: Iceborne getting some much-needed patches, ye olde Combat Evolved has a closed beta, dumb cars can become autonomous cars with a few small caveats, AR contact lenses, and much more! Thanks for joining us 😊

Come one, come all to post-CES content out in the wild this week as we dug deep to find things amidst all that might have gotten glazed over. On the gaming side, we’re still getting over top 10’s and top 12’s of this and that over the past year, but here we are looking at mods, demakes, and a lengthy discussion over our abundant disappointment in Capcom over their PC released of Iceborne…

We're back this week after the holidays to get back on routine (trust me, it's not just another New Year's resolution that'll statistically fizzle out). To get back into the swing of things, it's just going to be a BS week with talks on things we've seen crop up in the past couple of weeks we've been away, things definitely coming up throughout 2020, things projected to come up 2020, and just a whole lot...

Welcome to a new episode of pre-holiday slowness! That isn’t going to stop us though as we tear through the news we can find and have a fun discussion about it ranging from big butt updates to solar powered headphones. We had a bit of a hiccup with the audio around the 12 minute mark, so hopefully you won’t notice it too much – but either way, have happy holidays and we’ll see you for a rowdy one next week!

Howdy! Thanks for joining us for another week of tech and game news as the holiday draws even closer! Today we talk about influential gadgets of the decade, Surgeon Simulator 2 appearing to have cooperative gameplay, Nintendo going on the offensive against Pokémon Sword and Shield leakers, headphone warnings for when you walk out into oncoming traffic again, robots that de-weed and plant your crops, and more. It’s a bit of a slower...

It’s been a couple of weeks but we’re back for another long-overdue BS week! Yes, it’s the holidays and yes, it’s been one of those weeks where we didn’t spend a lot on the researching this week so join us for general BS’ing about previously talked about crowd-funded projects, some of the games we’ve had time to play, discussion on all the things we DIDN’T buy during Black Friday/Cyber Monday, and more! We’ll be back on schedule ...

Another week closer to 30 and we’ve got more news about Nintendo and their subscription obsessions, Pokémon talks, holograms that make us feel closer to the sci-fi future of our dreams, and ‘blade curtains’ (my brain hurts okay?) All that and more at Techscopo! Just a heads up too, we won’t host an episode next week due to some holiday stuffs but we’ll be back the following week! Until then, have a great couple of weeks!

This week we’re talking about 4 day work weeks, impending sales records, Google AI learning tools, a way to better check your discounts during the holiday sales season, and more! Tis the season!

Another week and it’s a bit on the slow side, but it doesn’t stop us from the fun talks on out-there news like poop research and sending pics of your poop to research for science! Ever wonder how some of these game developers come up with some of the intense and sometimes wacky sound effects you find in your favorite games? Well 343 goes into at least a bit of it and at least some of it involves pug noises. Sprinkle in some expensi...

After our long hiatus, we’re back to the routine schedule! It’s a little on the long side, but we had a lot to catch up on 😊 Steam Remote Play Together is available via Steam beta right now and you can try playing local multiplayer games over the net with your friends! We also talk for a bit on subscription services in general, how Outer World fits into it, and do a bit of an update on a game we covered 6 months ago. We als...

We’re back and we’ve got some random ones this week! Timeslip Softworks says they’re hopefully, completely done with their game Vigilantes – everything’s so “live-service’ these days, it’s hard to believe games actually finish. Speaking of games that finish, what about game series’? Well, Scott Cawthon says NAY with a new FNAF AR game coming out this year. What does space, aluminum, Styrofoam, and saran wrap have in common? Nothing...

Welcome to another week where there’s something about cats, dogs, or both and the tech and games that surround them! There’s also something about charity, exclusivity, and both in there as well! PR? Ultimatums? Just overall good causes? It’s sounds like real food for thought, so why don’t you grab a slice and have someone power level your gaming stats at the same time? All that and a bag of breadsticks – this… is Techscopo!

Here we are again with another week of random BS talk about news throughout the week including stuff we heard from Gamescom, our excitement about Halo and their testing of Reach’s Firefight mode on PC this past week, discussion about Facebook’s release and limitations of their clear history tool, Riot’s settlement of the current class action lawsuit, and more. We plan on doing these BS weeks every last Sunday of the month, so let u...

Welcome to another week of tech and games where we talk about exclusivity, 7-year-old mods hitting the finish line, AI missiles, and more. Is that your bartender? Is that a robot? Is it both? Companies collecting data say it isn’t enough anymore – let’s go for your sweat, or maybe how your joints bend. Should we embrace our robot/AI overlords? Should we run? Try just listening to Techscopo for now, we’ll see how it goes 😉

With all the hub-bub on Steam’s privilege escalation exploit, it looks like a patch has made its way to Steam Beta Client users, while if you have a Nintendo Switch instead, and go to the University of California Irvine, you may be looking at scholarships for those ‘smashing’ Super Smash Bros. skills. If, instead, you’re not into gaming at all but would rather rock back and forth in your rocking chair knitting all day long, well ST...

We’re back after being gone for a week, but the news doesn’t stop! Crazy indie titles coming out of the woodworks, mods that defy physics (and lifespans), everything’s out of beta (okay, not everything but still…), bubble wrap isn’t fun anymore (but works better), AI can tell when you’re cutting in line, and so much more. Thanks for continuing to stick with us!

Just a week of us BS’ing about the things we love to talk about – games and tech. Stick around with us as we chat about some of the random stuff we saw covered in the space throughout the week while we wrap up a birthday week for the birthday boy – Andrew! Whether it’s celebrating with robot bartenders pouring us the perfect drink to celebrate, whether the next big gaming purchase should be a Switch or a Playstation (or both??), St...

Welcome to another week where this time we dive more into Steam Lab’s current active experiments, talk about a new drag and drop game development engine Manu, prototype smart glass that can read numbers on the wall, more retro handheld consoles, and so much more!

Another week and we’re back to the format! Play games for hours in VR or get massages while you wonder the possible consequences. Don’t think about that too much though while you taste test your wine for urine – but wait! Now you don’t have to – with IBM’s future “e-tongue” which can tell you everything inside your liquids (including things you didn’t want to know about). Thinking about building a home? Well, just save all your bot...

We spent a while doing server/firewall maintenance this week and we got caught up on general life stuff, but the show must go on (and consistency is key)! No show notes, no squared off topics, no research – we’re just a couple of best buds chatting about the things we love, games and tech! We pull up some random topics we recall coming across throughout the week, reflect on life, listen to random cicadas in the distance… it’s just ...
