It has been many years since since we have had a new Star Fox game. The last new one I played was Star Fox Adventures for the Gamecube, so you can imagine I have been waiting for a new game for quite some time. Sure there was Star Fox 64 3D, but that was not a new game, just a well done remake. Well then good news for me and people like me then, because November 20th marks the day that Star Fox Zero will be released in Europe and North America for the Wii U. I look forward to doing lots and lots of barrel rolls then!
I hope everyone is ready for another week at work (at least for those of us who have landed on the Monday through Friday schedule). I know that I am. The weekend was spent backpacking with my buddy. But, you all came here to read about geeky activities, not about walking around under the Yellow Face. Read on to find out how I spent my time this week.
Reading: Again, reading has generally taken a backseat to most other activities this week. While I am away in the woods, I'm planning to read at least another volume of Pretty Guardian: Sailor Moon, but I will leave that discussion until next week.
Playing: I've split my gaming time this week between playing Hyrule Warriors with Crystal and Elite: Dangerous on my own. In Elite, I just purchased a new ship. I opted for the Hauler, which many fan have dubbed the space van. It may not be exciting to fly, but I'm hoping it can make me some cash via trading.
Watching: Doctor Who continues to be the viewing choice at my house. I recently watch "Mummy on the Orient Express", and I have to say that it is my favorite episode so far this season. Although the Doctor is still acting like a blowhard, we at least see some reason for it in this episode. And maybe we understand a bit better why Clara is willing to endure his barbs so that she can participate in the adventures. The pacing of this episode was also better than the last few have been. I hope this episode marks a turning point for the season, and that we get some more great episodes out of it.
Farewell for another week. Keep up with you geekiness, and I will do the same. Have a great week, and Game On!
Have you looked at the guest list for Nan Desu Kan recently? I believe NDK is going to supply us with a good mix of older and newer guests. From the former column: Lisa Ortiz. And from the later: Robbie Daymond. Don't know about the rest of you, but I'm excited for this convention.
I've made it through another week of splitting my time between working and geeking. As usual, I have one strong category, and two very week categories. Have a read to see what I've been doing.Read More

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to see Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F at the Sie Film Center here in Denver. And it was quite the treat to see! The movie was everything that one could hope for. There was fighting, comedy, and plenty of escalation of powers! It was also nice that they did not over play powering up but still made it a large event. Everything that you could want from a Dragon Ball Z movie.Read More
I have returned from my (brief) summer vacation, and am back to the ordinary world of work and geek. But, I enjoyed my camping trip / tech sabbatical. Several days without the ability to use my phone (at least without standing in some very specific locations) was a great break from normal life. Now that I'm back, how have I spent my time? Mostly planted in front of the TV, cause Denver is way too hot!Read More
Hey everyone! I'm away camping this week, so there will be no "Professional Gamer" article. I'll be back next Monday at the usual time.
