Nintendo Power remixed buttons



I recently chopped up my old Nintendo Power collection and put my new button maker to use with these rad Nintendo Power remix buttons. Each is 1 1/4" (indie rock size) and has some sort of strange (possibly meaningful? philosophical?) phrase on them. I'm selling them in packs of 4 on etsy for 10 bucks!

pre-pax party clarification!

Ok, there seems to be some sort of discussion going around about some GIANT ASS party over at my place before pax. I wish to clarify. This pre-pax party will be invite only, and mainly for industry types. I will send the invites this week. This means no random community members. My apartment is small. This will be a SMALL PARTY.


SMALL.


ISH.


Go about your business. (and maybe buy a t-shirt from http://www.splitreason.com/weeklygeek/)   read

pre-pax party

Hello my dtoid friends. Since I am your resident Seattle host for PAX, I am planning a dtoid pre-pax party at my place. I'm thinking the thursday night before PAX starts, food and booze and games in the lovely Capitol Hill neighborhood, where I reside. I just wanted to see who is going to be arriving on thursday and who can make it, basically everyone is invited anyway. I'll hook Niero or Colette up with my address in case I miss anyone on the invite.

Who's down?   read

Own some Metroid Art!




I make a lot of art. This weekend I decided to reprint one of my Metroid pieces to capitalize on the success of Metroid Prime 3. How shrewd of me! I made an edition of 18, and I must say they look damned good. You can own one of these spiffy little hand-printed Metroid masterpieces yourself - all you have to do is send me $15 of your own American currency. Shipping is free, and all the proceeds go to making The Weekly Geek a better place.

I broked it

I broke the weekly geek this weekend. i was upgrading to mt4 and it was borked. boooooooooooooooo

The good news is that the borked website will most likely motivate me to finish the new design and get it uploaded. Also, the mt4 backend is fucking sweet.

Just thought you'd all like to know.

I finished Bioshock on Hard, Blue Dragon sucks, Metroid is amazing and I am a huge fan of pie. Move along.   read

Metroid 3 is amazing.

If there's one game that could tear me away from Bioshock, it's Metroid Prime 3. Holy crap, this game is amazingly good. Take all the classic things that made the original Prime games so great (scanning, completionist ocd behavior) and multiply it by... let's say 3. There are even little mini-achievements! The voice acting is a fantastic addition, and the story seems like it's going to be quite amazing, wrapping up the storyline just up until the first metroid for the NES.

Oh yeah, and Mother Brain. Fricking Mother Brain.

Get it. GET IT NOW.   read

it is finished.

i beat bioshock yesterday and instantly started a new game on hard. Easy is pretty easy but hard is freaking hard. Lives up to the names, I guess! Excellent, excellent game. I can't say enough great things about it. Though I have one gripe. While the boss battles are intense and difficult, I kind of wish they had a grander scale. Like I kept expecting to fight a giant squid or something, all resident evil style. It's just a teensy gripe, though, and in no way should influence your purchase of the game. Everything is smooth, tight, and well constructed. The research system, the invention system, weapon upgrades, everything is amazing. A major leap forward in gaming. Though, I get the impression that somehow I may actually enjoy Metroid 3 more? Hm. I kept playing through the levels in bioshock wishing I could scan things. For a shooter it's an impressive mix of adventure and run and gun and strategy, but somehow I wish there were more puzzles and less.... shooting?

I am just picking things to gripe about now. It's a brilliant game. Get it, love it, etc.

also check my achievements. aww yeah. first time through? 760pts.   read

An Antlion Appears! Command?



You can add a saddle to an ostrich and paint it yellow but it will never be a chocobo. You can paint your cat white and glue a pom pom on its head but it will never be a moogle. Fortunately, you CAN own a Final Fantasy creature of your very own: an Antlion! AntlionDen.com is a supplier of fine antlion kits, perfect for level grinding with. I wonder what levels they start at!
