Denver Comic Con – Day 3 Roundup

Sunday is usually the wind-down day at most conventions, but that wasn’t even close to the case at Denver Comic Con!  I didn’t stop sprinting from panel to panel until the very end of the day, and even then the convention was still going strong.  Typically everything is dead by 3, but Avistrum Academy’s panel was at 5:15 and they were filled from the gills.  With preliminary numbers of 114,900, it’s not hard to see why!   The final day of the show kicked off with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who…

Denver Comic Con – Day 2 Roundup

Anyone who’s attended a comic con before can attest that there’s no scale to explain the kind of tired that is con tired.  Your senses are constantly bombarded all day long as you try to take in all of the amazing geekery that you’ve been waiting all year to be a part of again.  It’s that deeply satisfying kind of tired.  The type that comes with a sleepy smile and the satisfaction that you spent a day (or several) inundated with all of your pop culture favorites.   Denver Comic Con…

Denver Comic Con – Day 1 Roundup!

Wow!  W.O.W.  What a busy day!  When it comes to cons, Denver Comic Con is still in its adolescence, especially when you look at shows like San Diego, and New York, but don’t let its age fool you.  While it hasn’t been around as long as some of the others, DCC still brings it when it comes to geek game, and it certainly hits the ground running when it comes to programming. From the Pop Culture Classroom events, to its packed line-up of guests, the DCC team doesn’t take Friday…

E3 Recap – Everything You Want In One Place

E3 or the Electronics Entertainment Expo is easily one of my favorite times of the year. I’ve dreamed of going for as long as I can remember. It lives in the same area of my heart as San Diego Comic Con and the Consumer Electronics Show.  I’ve never been, but I’m pretty sure everything I do or have done is preparing me for the moment I can make these three conferences. Anyhow, below are some links for you to catch up on everything you missed. The conference is winding down…

The 100 3×10 “Fallen” Top 5

The 100 3x10 "Fallen" Top 5

In this week’s episode of  The 100 Jasper finds a purpose, Abby is coerced and makes a tough decision and Jackson is creepy. Here’s my  The 100 3×10 “Fallen” Top 5. The Insurgency I enjoyed seeing “The Insurgency” group breakaway from Arcadia. This entire episode felt like watching a good episode from Season 1 of The 100. So far this season it feels like the characters have been all over the place and it was good to see them working together again. Even if working together is tension filled. Jasper Jordan…

Supernatural 11.16 “Safe House” Top 5

This week on Supernatural, Jim Beaver and Steven Williams returned to reprise their roles as Bobby and Rufus while putting the Supernatural family on an emotional roller coaster as we remember how much we miss those characters and face a brand new monster. Here were my top 5 moments from “Safe House.”   5. New Monster After 11 years on the air as a show that specializes in monsters, it must be challenging to come up with something fresh and new for dedicated fans. Sometimes little twists and loopholes can…

“Hive” Review: Insect Chess

If you’re anything like me, you love boardgames. But if you are like me (you poor soul), you love spending time at home alone with your person, whomever they may be, and few other humans about. While many games can be played with 2 players, not many should. As such, it can be difficult to mitigate the realms of board game geek and homebody. Enter Hive. If you can imagine chess, but with bugs, and about 100x more fun, you’re probably close to picturing Hive. In hive, you control either white…

The Geekly Gifts Guide

Regardless of what holidays you may or may not celebrate this festive season, I believe having a comprehensive list of gifts on hand is always a good idea. So we here at the esteemed Geekly Planet have complied a comprehensive list of our favourite geeky stores and we promise we haven’t been paid to say any of this. ThinkGeek ThinkGeek has a wide range of products for every nerd. In addition to its original products including some fantastically nerdy science shirts, ThinkGeek also has a wide range of licensed products…

Dungeons and Drafts Review

  If you’re in or around the Northern Colorado area, there’s been a buzz about a new up and coming geek bar in Fort Collins.  After a rousing success with their kickstarter campaign, Dungeons and Drafts was born. By donating at a certain level on said kickstarter, you were invited to the tavern’s VIP Party.  Well, obviously this was too cool to pass up, so myself and a friend of the Planet donated at the higher level so we could check out what it was all about. Ambiance The moment…
