Recently, Geek and Sundry started it’s fourth season of the Wil Wheaton produced Tabletop, where well-known geeks come together to play a variety of board games. It is both entertaining and educational for those who love board games and those who are new.
TED Talks are a universally known series of talks on a large variety topics. I have seen many, many TED talks, but I wanted to see what talks existed around common topics in geeky land.
I watch YouTube and Twitch more than anything else, and the new YouTube Red Originals have caught my eye a few times. When I finally decided to purchase a subscription, I knew I was going to have to review some of the shows.
I wrote a post awhile back about watching Twitch and using it as a way to be a game viewer. Now it has become one of my main forms of entertainment, especially for gaming content. But, when you are new-ish to Twitch, it’s kind of hard to find streamers to watch. I have the answers to that.
Did you know that you can watch quidditch in real life, with a World Cup and everything?Sure, flying might not be directly involved, but quidditch is alive and well all around the world.
If you aren’t very connected to the gaming community, then you probably have little knowledge of what Overwatch is. And if you are part of the gaming community, you have seen it’s explosion in popularity, especially with Monday’s launch day of the game. Prior to launch, Blizzard created animated shorts for different characters to add to the story of the multiplayer. And these you have to see.
I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts that I don’t play video games, but I avidly watch other people play games. My focus is on the story of the game or the artwork of the game, and how the gamer plays the game. So, I would watch on YouTube primarily, and then that connected me to Twitch.
Have you ever wanted to feel like you are in the movie? Like you are the star? If yes, then Hardcore Henry is the movie for you.
So I am that person who watches other people play video games, and never play them myself. Yeah, it’s strange, but life is strange (heh get it?). Anyway, one of my recent games I watched through is Life is Strange, a game that focuses on a teenager who can control time and must save her classmates and friends from death and destruction.
Confession time: I am OBSESSED with Hamilton. Like, not even Harry Potter got me as hooked so quickly as Hamilton has. Another confession: I haven’t actually seen it (yet).
