Happy Memorial Day to all my nerdlings; as you enjoy your day off, please take a moment from bbqing to reflect on the true purpose of today in remembering that all gave some and some gave all so we have the freedom to live our lives as we see fit.
Enjoy the company of your family and friends; and stay safe!
Happy Geek Pride/Star Wars/Towel/Disc Day! That’s a lot of geeky love to show, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet; go out, do something geeky, and be proud of it! Being a nerd is all about being unashamedly passionate about what you LOVE! Enjoy the below gallery of me at some of my geekiest moments; hopefully it inspires you to do likewise! Stay nerdy my friends.
PNN’s inaugural Wednesday Warrior Review is dedicated to Felicia Day and all the fine folks over at The Guild. The Guild is being published by Dark Horse and with this issue has wrapped up a series of one shots each dedicated to one of the main characters as a prequel book informing their backstory prior to the first season of the web series of the same name (for more info on the series, check out Congrats Guildies).
Todays issue follows Fawkes, the leader of rival guild the Axis of Anarchy, on a bridging adventure between season 4 following his journey to his surprising state when he returns in season 5. This issue reveals how Fawkes deals with his split from Codex (Felicia Day) and navigates the aggressive personalities of the Axis both in game and out. As usual for The Guild books, there’s a variant cover (which I always wind up buying as the var usually features in game personas and comes off way more epic, although both covers for this one were in game likenesses), and a 4 page sample can be found on Dark Horse’s website (or by clicking the covers below).
Just wanted to take today to say congratulations to the cast of the guild. Their music videos combined on youtube hit 24 million views today!
For those unfamiliar, The Guild is a web series started by Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible) that follows the misadventures of her and her fellow gamers as they team up to conquer “the game” (not WoW they’re VERY careful about not using any proper names) and survive real life. What started as a modest undertaking and passion project has since grown into it’s 5th season, being featured on msn and xbox live, and perhaps the most successful web series to date!
