Welcome to the new Legend of Zelda…

The Zelda franchise has been one of my firm favourites of all time, always bringing an epic and exciting adventure to the table with plenty of nostalgia along for the ride. With the latest (and greatest) news that some new additions are coming for the franchise, including a rework of the classic ‘Majora’s Mask’ for the 3DS, it is set to be a very good year for Nintendo (and the players!). The most important announcement for me was the release of the beautifully crafted reborn Legend of Zelda.

GTA Online – A Clockwork Orange

Having been out for well over a year now, the thriving world of GTA Online continues to impress and present gamers with new options. You’d think these would involve tricks, races and new level creations but there’s some really creative work going on with photography and video within the game.

With the release of GTA V on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms, gamers are now able to record their gameplay right from the console and they are making the most of it. A YouTube channel named ‘GTA Series Videos‘ released an awesome homage to Stanley Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’ with some of the most iconic scenes reenacted within the game.

The best (and worst) Cosplay

There was a time years ago I would never have done any Cosplay for fear of being laughed at by others far bigger but not brighter than me, now times have changed. In the last few years Cosplay has become an artform to be admired by movie,comic, tv and gaming fans alike who get to see their hero in 3D, but there are some outfits which just make you want to look away.

Possible new Xbox project on the way?

Microsoft’s Xbox division look to be starting a secret project, if the job listing on the MS website is anything to go by that is. The listing states they are looking for a Senior Software Engineer but the details of the job are pretty scetchy. After a long paragraph it reads ‘You may not know what your new project is until you’ve accepted an offer.’ and ‘If you want a comfortable, standard-role job at Microsoft with no ambiguity or risk, please don’t apply.’ 

This doesn’t seem like your typical 9 – 5 job and jumping in could be a big risk but could mean you being part of the next big thing for Xbox. Who knows?. Would you risk it all to jump into the unknown?

The Geeks are going to Comic Con London

The team behind “i Reek of Geeks” will be at the MCM Comic Con event MCM_ComicCon_London2[1]in London on May 22 to 25.  This is the first time I have been to a comic convention since 2002 and for Dutchboy Dan its his first trip to London.

This year Comic Con event will host movies, TV shows, Comic artists, Cos Play and gaming eSports which will appeal to all those wonderful Geeks out there.

I admit I was slightly naive about Cos Play until I watched the video below from Comic Con 2014 and it made me realise how much fun people have dressing up.

In the run up to the event the team at “i Reek of Geek” will be putting information about the guests, features and news which we think you might want to read.  We will also be attending the fringe events as well and hopefully the Comic Con party.

Keep your eye on our twitter page @iReekofGeekUK and the @MCMExpo for more information.
