Hello, fans of the Perpetual Geek Machine! This is Nicole, returning from my long hiatus. I was so busy before/during/after PAX Prime that I’ve had no time to do anything at all! But I’m finally getting back to my regular routine. I’ve been saving up lots of cool stuff to share with you, so I hope you’re ready for a super packed Geekly!
The first thing I need to get out of the way is all of the amazing Game of Thrones stuff I’ve been seeing everywhere. The first one is Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Brooklyn and their 9 dinner specials created in honor of Game of Thrones characters. My favorite drawing is of Arya, but my favorite food pun is definitely Sandor Eggane! Here’s a bunch of pictures of the cast of the show totally out of character, which is adorably disturbing. And in case you’re not like me, buried under a huge backlog of games, you can check out the Game of Thrones 8-bit video game, which is pretty awesome. These Game of Thrones NFL sigils are pretty amazing, too. And finally, I really love the way this artist put these Game of Thrones characters in 80s and 90s fashion. Oh, and in case you wanted some cool Game of Thrones stuff, here is a Weirwood Snow Globe for your desk. (more…)
The floating city of Columbia is under siege. Two factions are vying for control, the ideological Founders and the Vox Populi uprising. Floating city aside it might not feel like that much of an original story. 2 groups of people are fighting to live in the same space. But while this fight is going on, there are important events unfolding. A man named Booker Dewitt has come to Columbia in to try and rescue a enigmatic woman named Elizabeth. Now while the factions are fighting each other they must also contend with Booker at any moment. As if fighting a war wasn’t stressful enough. This is Bioshock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia. Let’s Play!
Welcome, dear readers, to another exciting edition of the Geekly! Today marks the two year anniversary of my relationship with my darling boyfriend, Anthony. To celebrate, we were planning on going out to dinner. However, the new Dungeons & Dragons Encounters kit came in, and character creation is supposed to start tonight, so instead, we’re heading to Redcap’s Corner for that. It’s fitting, since that’s where we met!
There are so many cool things on the Internet right now that it’s hard not to pull my wallet out and just start buying everything! But I’m trying to keep my head on straight, as PAX Prime is coming up. Speaking of which, have you seen the amazing Pinny Arcade pins they’ve announced so far? Last week, they announced all of the straight PAX pins, and this week, they announced all of the third-party pins! I am so excited to get my hands on some of these. They’re beautiful!
