Cosplay Spotlight – Phoenix Comicon 2016 – What to wear? What to wear?

Cosplayers at Phoenix Comicon 2016 by Durrrilion They take a step, they stop for a pic.  They take another and stop again.  From the first day to the last of any convention, cosplayers of varying skill levels do The Step and Pose Shuffle. Despite my busy schedule I managed a few shots and a couple of interviews. Starting off is ‘Cersei’ from Game of Thrones.  Casey Renee Cosplay from Chicago…

A Sprint Through Some of the Most Anticipated Games of E3 2016

Where do I start with this year in E3. 2016 has been a weird year so far with gaming news being a roller coaster of good news and weird news. We start with the sequels hitting the news.  We have the aforementioned Call of Duty going into space, while Battlefield decided to do a 180 and cover the Great War.  In all honesty both games look interesting and honestly a…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Puts You in the Driver's Seat of a Starship

Today at E3 in Los Angeles, Ubisoft announced a fall release for Star Trek: Bridge Crew, a new virtual reality game that will allow players to explore space as a member of the Federation. Playable co-operatively with a crew or solo as Captain, Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts players directly onto the bridge in a Starfleet ship.

See you in Azeroth!

Warcraft Movie Review by Durrilion I have to preface this with a disclaimer: I have not  played World of Warcraft in almost a year.  Things like college, work, and illness have kept me away.  With that said, I am still familiar with Azeroth, though maybe not as familiar as longer term players.  Overall I loved this film and what it does for the game, the fantasy genre, and geeks all…

An Interview with ZapCon Founder Wes Cleveland

There were arcades everywhere in Pittsburgh, PA and Chicago, IL while I was growing up and the original Star Wars and Discs of Tron were my immediate destinations when I entered.  I specifically remember a spot called Aladdin’s Arcade and I still have a token from it! Well, if you’re a fan of the arcade, then ZapCon is the convention you’ve been waiting for! Taking place April 16-17, 2016 at…

The Latest in Geek Chic at Amazing Arizona Comicon

Geek Chic By Durrilion Gone are the days of looking like a nerd being a nightmare.  Since the 90’s (at the very least) geek culture has hit the main stream like a deuterium rich gravimetric field displacement manifold.  (Okay so I had to look that up).  With iconic characters like Superman, Batman, Darth Vader, Yoda, etc, stepping out of the Dork Forest, it was inevitable that we geeks would create our own…

Breaking News Possible Nintendo NX Leak!

A supposed leaked image of the controller for Nintendo’s next console has cropped up on the internet. It matches the Nintendo patent recently submitted.  This is quite an interesting departure from a standard controller with its lacking a traditional D-Pad and having  just analog sticks.  Quite interesting indeed if proven to be real.

First Impression : Helldivers

“Come on you apes, you wanna live forever?”  This line harks back to Starship Troopers, just as does this game.  Helldivers was released free of charge to PS Plus members as a free game of the month and boy am I pleased.  This game takes the satire styling of Starship Troopers and puts it in game form and lets you play out your space marine fantasies in the most absurd…

First Impression "The Division".

Ubisofts’ open world survival game, The Division, has recently sent out some beta invites to the general public and I got my hands on this piece of work.  You might be wondering what The Division is and luckily I have the basic rundown.  The game has you playing as a member of an agency called The Division, short for Strategic Homeland Division.  This game takes place in a near future scenario…
