It’s that time again… time for the Geekly, PGM’s weekly report on the strange and wonderful geeky things we see around the Internet!
First up are the new shirts being featured at Shirt.woot right now. All the Foods has some great designs, like the Portal shirt This Was A Triumph. And they’ve got a bunch of their classics for sale on the Year Two page, including a favorite of mine: Press My Buttons. They’re only available for a limited time, so get them while you can!
There’s lots of great new stuff that’s happened in the last week – Krieg the Psycho was released for Borderlands 2 as a new class, and both Anamanaguchi and Daft Punk have new albums. My boyfriend Anthony and I have been playing double Kriegs whenever we have the time for it. It’s been a ridiculous amount of fun! (more…)
Apocalypze is a card game in which survivors of a zombie apocalypse fight against each other to the death. Playing as one of four factions – Bikers, Civilians, Police, or Soldiers – you defend your stronghold, scavenge for supplies, and use Raiders to mercilessly attack the other survivors. The last faction standing – meaning the last faction with enough resources to still feed its people for one turn – wins.
Apocalypze is a complicated game, but once you’ve played it once or twice, it’s easy to get the hang of. The directions have a handy cheat sheet in the back that gives you the quick and dirty rules of how each turn is supposed to go. The rules themselves are long and fairly complicated, and I’m pretty certain we did most of it wrong the first time.
Welcome, friends, to another installation of the Geekly! I’ve found some interesting stuff around the Internet in the last week, and I hope you enjoy it!
Now that I’ve finally beaten Dead Space 3 (it took me long enough!), I can especially appreciate this crazy, fan-made working Plasma Cutter. This amazing replica “weighs about 4.4 pounds, took about 200 hours to build, and features 1,500-milliwatt burning blue lasers.” How long until I can own that myself?
Hello, world! The Geekly has finally returned! And I’ve got lots and lots of neat stuff for you today. What have I been the most obsessed with lately? Well, I love the latest Story Bundle, which is ten video game books/magazines for just $10. And I’ve got World 1-2, an incredible chiptunes album, on repeat at all times. Amazing stuff!
What else? Well, Monsters!, the game I wrote the story for, is on sale now, and you should buy it! And tickets to GameLoop Philly, happening next Saturday, are on sale now. And speaking of things I really want to go to: the Twofivesix Kill Screen conference is happening this weekend. Too much awesome!
Welcome to this week’s Geekly, the PGM round-up of all the cool geeky things around the web! Read on for some neat ways to store your books, some of my favorite Kickstarters going on right now, and why the next three months are going to be busy ones for geeks.
I’m an avid reader, so book nooks are a fascinating thing to me, and something I aspire to one day have in my own home. This one is lovely, and I would imagine I’d spend hours folded up inside of it. But for a real masterpiece, check out this wonder. You could actually read by daylight, curled up in the sun! What a dream come true for a book nerd. I also adore this neat bookcase, even if it’s not really practical. Whatever!
