When you think "geek" you may find yourself thinking of me. From a young age my nose was either plastered in a book or my eyes glued to a video game. I'll be your guide through all things geeky, from comics to video games.

WRUP (Week of 1/22/18)

Well, another week down. And what a week it has been. January is almost at a close and, somehow, we are all still alive and not living a real-life version of Fallout (but just in case, might want to get your bottle caps ready). So let's check in with our Twinstiq crew to find out what they have been playing!


Scrooloose: Well I finally jumped into the Ashes of Malmouth expansion for Grim Dawn and it's pretty good so far. Two new classes and two full new acts in the game story. I'm more or less planning on that being my major Vice. Yoda and I have decided to install Warframe and try it at some point soon since it's referred to as -Destiny, but good. Plus it's free to play so if we don't like it it's gone and forgotten. And depending on what my schedule looks like, I'll probably keep on with Shadow of War and Horizon Zero Dawn in the wee hours.


TruLegendKiller: Assassin's Creed Origins has me hooked right now. But I can never stay too far away from Persona 5. About to restart that again because it is so freaking good. Also may make time to play more The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. 

GreyWolfe: I'm probably halfway with the Chaot campaign in Etherlords 2. It feels that way, at least.  [when I won the original campaign, my guy was approaching level 13.  my guy in the current campaign is at about level 8.] - it's fun. I'm glad I'm actually playing through the whole thing, now. As for Book of Unwritten Tales, well, Wilbur's got his robe and wizard hat on, which means it's probably time to move back to Ivo, the elf.  I love the design of this game for the most part. All the puzzles are absolutely logical.

Yoda0vgs: Gonna try out Warframe at some point, still roaming around Witcher, and got some more friends into Dota so I may be putting my coaching hat on :P


Hey everyone, it's your friendly neighborhood geek, TruLegendKiller. As you may be able to tell, we are up to another round of Game Club. Our Fourth round if have been keeping track. In fact, what better way to start a new year? Happy 2017! I wanted to pick something different, I've picked games with shooter elements. I wanted to do something new, something different. So I went with a game that caught my eye but I, myself, have yet to play.  I came across this game on Steam and, as people pointed out, seems inspired by the great stealth games  of the Tenchu franchise. Therefore, the game I am choosing is a third person stealth game called Aragami.

Hello, Internet and welcome to our next round of Game Club. I’m TruLegendKiller, and for this round of Game Club we will be playing through Alien: Isolation. I was hoping this would have fallen into October but it is what it is. Released in October of 2014 to, largely, high reviews. Classified as an action-adventure game, make no mistake, this is a survival horror. And one at its finest. Developed by Creative Assembly (the minds behind the Total War series and the upcoming Halo Wars 2) the game is based on the Alien science fiction horror film from Ridley Scott. By based, I mean a direct sequel to the first film. This is no James Cameron science fiction action film. The game takes it back to the series roots of horror. In other words, it is you, and a monster, and you are struggling to survive. And because of this reason, this is why we are playing this game.


I have been an Alien fan for many years. Equally, I have been a horror fan as well. Most horror games have little to no effect on me. Games like Five Nights At Freddy’s or Outlast hold little interest to me. Those games throw jump scares and think it makes it amazing horror. In my opinion they do not. What makes good horror is when it is natural. When no matter what you do, be it have weapons or reach a save point, you can still lose. That is what makes this game so amazing. The Xenomorph’s AI is smart, it learns, it predicts, it adapts. In games like Outlast you can hide in a locker and the AI will almost never find you. Here… Well, never think you are safe. Oh, you found a check point? The Xenomorph will kill you as you are trying to save.


Set in the year 1237, 15 years after the events of the first film. You play as Amanda Ripley, daughter to the missing Ellen Ripley. Approached by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation with the promise of maybe finding her mother. After the flight recorder of the Nostromo was located, she is tasked with recovering it from a space station. This is where the nightmare begins. This is where your nightmare begins.


This is a long game and will, likely, take several episodes of Game Club to get through. There are 19 main story missions. As such, try to play up to mission 7 (Seegson Synthetics). Good luck, have fun, and get good.

Until next time.

Non-Stiq: The Killing Joke (Animated) Review

Back in 1988 Alan Moore rocked the comic world (again) with his one-shot graphic novel The Killing Joke. Within the pages of this masterpiece Moore set what many feel is the definitive backstory of the Batman supervillain The Joker. Not only that, but the story would prove as a defining moment for another character, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl). In a vicious assault Joker leaves her paralyzed, something that not only would define her character as much as being the first Batgirl (there have been three others: Bette Kane, Cassandra Cain, and Stephanie Brown) but lead her to becoming a role model to paraplegic individuals when she would later take up the mantle of Oracle. For the last 28 years The Killing Joke has stood as one of the most beloved and twisted Batman tales.

So, what better place to start then the recent controversy surrounding Marvel Comics?
