2015 has come and gone and with it a number of experiences. And since I have been sparse in my writing as of late I am going to start 2016 with a recap of my 2015.
Movies (Possible Spoilers)
Movies for geeks have been releasing in larger and larger quantities each year. Marvel has moved forward with their grand cinematic plan keeping us wanting more and more. 2015 saw the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man in which the close of Marvel's Phase 2 plan happened. In Age of Ultron we were introduced to not one, but two of the Infinity Stones and seen some forward movement in Thano's plan to rule the universe. Then in Ant-Man we were introduced to the newest non-shield superhero to enter the Marvel landscape. Both movies were great experiences and a ton of fun.Read More
Welcome to a remastered version of This Weeks Geek! In this edition you will get almost the exact same thing you normally get, but in an HD text format!

We have seen this with Halo, Kingdom Hearts and now The Last of Us. But is this really something we want, or is it just a cheap(ish) way to make us buy the same game twice?Read More
Magic, it is a wondrous thing that allows the impossible to happen. Flying carpets, repairing broken items in an instant and making games such as quidditch. But in a world where magic is fully accessible by everyone, in a world where magic makes everyone's lives easier, would we have video games?
For this discussion I am going to mainly refer to the world of Harry Potter and how things are in Hogwarts compared to the muggle world. I will not be including the things that appear to be a direct byproduct of wizard / muggle interaction such as magical vehicles.Read More
The console market is changing.
