What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Metal Gear Solid V Logo

This game is not remarkably new. I’m obligated, and just a bit saddened, to admit by virtue of that fact that I am woefully out of touch with the world of video games. I can’t really use the excuse that I’m a grown-ass man, because I know many such men who still have their fingers pressed firmly upon the pulse of the video gaming world, but I lost my grip on it some time ago.

But there are still certain little corners on which I like to keep an eye. I buy Nintendo systems when they release new Zelda games for those systems, I anxiously await another Star Wars: Battlefront title.

And until recently, I maintained a dull, loveless marriage to the Metal Gear Solid series. I suppose it all started in my early years, when this advertisement showed up on the back of practically every Marvel comic.

Where to start, where to start. Yes, I spent 3 hours in the theater this week to watch the conclusion of Peter Jackson’s drawn out Hobbit trilogy. And I mean to talk about it. But let’s start with a little background on my love of Tolkien.

Who Review – Last Christmas

62665

Merry Christmas, Whovians! Being the Who-heads that we are, we’re keyed in on a little secret that most of the world doesn’t know about; that secret being that we all know the best part of Christmas isn’t the awesome presents, the great home cooked meals, or even spending time wit your family. All that stuff really makes for a great day, but the thing that really ties the holiday together is that you spend the whole day taking comfort in the fact that no matter how merry a Christmas you’re having, it’s only going to get better because there’s a brand new episode of Doctor Who on at the end of the day.  You could be having the absolute best day of your life and just when you think it can’t possibly get any better, that’s when the Christmas special starts.  Conversely, that yule tide blessing is also a mistletoe wrapped punch in the gut because the Christmas specials always have a way of leaving us in tears when it’s all said and done. This year, we’ll be hearing from a few of the Evil Geek Whovians regarding what they thought of the newest Christmas special. Word on the street is that this is going to be Clara Oswald’s curtain call, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed by the BBC as of the time of the writing of this article. Could it be that our stocking this year will be stuffed with thousands of tears as Clara’s ego maybe gets the better of her and lands her in a situation she isn’t able to wiggle out of. Will this be the Doctor and Clara’s last Christmas? Let’s find out!

Panel Of The Day 12/26/14

Precious little is actually known about this, but sources indicate that in 1981 Frank Miller and Roger Stern were going to be paired together on a Doctor Strange book. This original art was an ad that ran in February of the same year in different Marvel titles. However, the book never ended up panning out due to the creator’s schedules so all we have is this art and what could have been.

The title says it all Geeks! Let’s take a look at one of the greatest pictures in Americana; It’s a Wonderful Life! Essentially the film is a Christmas classic that is played year after year across networks around the world and celebrates what could be described as “good” about mankind, but what you may not have realized is that it’s an ALT Read the rest of this entry
