I’ve been making a habit of prowling around Kickstarter these days pretty regularly. There’s something about putting your project out there for the world to judge that I find incredibly exciting and inspirational. I’ve also found some really awesome projects to back, and love the idea of putting the money right into the pocket of the creators.
Woe to the Living the card game grabbed my absolute attention the second I was on the page. The art style is arresting, it’s such a throwback to the pulp comic feel from back in the day. Horror that’s not just gore for the sake of gore, but the real classic Thing From The Black Lagoon, Dracula type stuff. I’ll admit to not knowing much about how the game worked when I decided to throw down my money and back it, but for $9 bucks for the game with shipping I really figured I didn’t have much to lose. You’re getting a game plus an awesome looking card deck that can be used for regular old poker, that’s tough to beat.
I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to feature the game makers here in our little spotlight column, and luckily they accepted! So, let’s learn a little more about Woe to the Living!
Let’s be honest, any idiot could throw up a few pics of the Death Star and call this post done. But that would be too easy. And besides, I’m trying to give you readers something you might not run across every day. Something a little… outside the norm.
With that, please enjoy our little selection of Star Wars themed wallpapers. Just click the images to get at the full size, then save accordingly!
BTW, we have a ton Perpetually Geeky wallpapers just waiting to be downloaded over at our Facebook page. You should totally visit us and give us a “like!”
I’m what you could probably call a big theme park fanatic. If you listen to the podcast much you’d know how often the wife and I make a trek down to Disney World. In between that we make regular trips to other parks/carnivals/fairs what have you to search out interesting and fun new rides to try out. I fully admit I’m pretty lucky to have found someone that will go on any ride with me, even stupid fast and crazy high ones (not my video but we have been on it). Tilt-a-whirls, Merry-go-rounds, bouncy castles, you name it. I love all that shit.
So it’s probably no surprise that I was a bit excited to get my hands on Carnival, which is all about those rides that I love so much.
On Monday I was browsing the Steam store, as I’m wont to do on a daily basis, and saw the release of a new free-to-play game that billed itself as “The co-op fantasy mmo shooter”. How could I NOT be intrigued by that? What the hell does that mean?
Being the diligent blogger that I like to think I am I downloaded the game and gave it a whirl. Hit the jump to see a little of what you can expect from Realm Of The Mad God. (more…)
Yeah. It happened. “Real Life” swept us up in its vicious, unrelenting grasp two weeks ago and we missed our regular schedule. Until we can figure out a way to make tons and tons of money off of this while blabbing about geeky stuff to kabillions of loyal listeners missing a show here and there is bound to happen.
Regardless, we’re sorry for letting you down but we’re back this week with another stellar episode of the Perpetual Geek Machine podcast!
