As a geek and an animal lover, I’ve always loved seeing the sidekick pets on page and screen. Now I’m not talking about a dog or cat who happens to just be around and has no part in the story except for a brief mention. Nor am I referring to the anthropomorphic talking animals that are partners to the main characters. I mean the true sidekick pets, the ones that provide an assist as a real sidekick but also live with the heroes, at least part of the time, and have a connection to them.

It’s Black Friday weekend, which means video game sales are rolling out (if they haven’t already where you live). The PS4 and Xbox One are in high demand, and we’re getting games like Star Wars: Battlefront, Lego Dimensions, and Fallout 4. The amazing thing is, I don’t see commercials on television for many of these games anymore. This may be due to changes in how gamers get their news, so most of these ads are limited to the Internet.
Thinking about this, I turned to the Internet to see how games were advertised in the past for systems I played as a kid (I’m still behind the times with a PS2 and Wii, but even those aren’t for the games I turn on to relax). Continue reading Best Geeky Finds – Marketing the Console Wars
Unless you’ve been stuck on Mars for the past six month, you have heard about Marvel’s Jessica Jones. For those in the know and not in the know, it is a series based on the Marvel Max miniseries Alias. It follows Jessica Jones, a former superhero turned private detective. She is a street level character who has some ties with Luke Cage. Now, Mr. Cage is a marvel character who has been around since the early 70’s and has mostly been a B or C tier character until Alias and the “Civil War” event. Now, he’s up there with the big boys – Cage is even an Avenger now! As you may know, he is one of my faves and is a great study in self improvement. Ride with me in the way back machine as I give you a crash course on him from his meager beginnings to his rise to the top.

No real news things this week, just a lot of black Friday deals. League of Legends and Smite are getting patched – both are just some game play balancing and skins.
The Fire Emblem Fates pre-orders are gone from Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop so if you were planning on pre-ordering on black Friday, you’re out of luck. If Nintendo is smart they will do another round of them like with the new Xenoblade X, but even if they don’t, you can buy one game get the other for half off and get the third one for $20 as well, bringing your total to $80 if you pre-order or not.
