Review: Clockwork Boys (Clocktaur War Book 1)

Convicted criminal Slate knows she’s not the first choice to lead an expedition into enemy territory. Heck, she’s not even the second. No one else has managed to find any useful information on the rampaging Clockwork Boys though, so she and a smart-aleck assassin, a failed paladin, and a misogynistic scholar have been press-ganged into infiltrating a neighboring city to find something, anything, that will save the Dowager’s City from the invading army.

It’s an act of pure desperation on the Dowager’s part, but Slate is hopeful for her little band….she’s actually hoping they’ll all manage to kill each other and save everyone else the trouble.

Binary System Podcast – the Angels of Night Vale fan art

No podcast this week; the new Night Vale episode doesn’t drop until tomorrow, and it’ll be a few days before we catch up on all our TV shows and OH MY GOD HAVE YOU WATCHED SEASON TWO OF STRANGER THINGS YET?

Ahem. To fill the time until then, have some of our favorite Welcome To Night Vale fan art. We decided this time to focus on just angels. (The Sheriff’s Secret Police said it was okay to acknowledge their existence!)

Review – Transformers Lost Light #11

Review – Transformers Lost Light #11

At long last, this issue we get the answer to the question that’s bugged me for months: how the hell did Getaway convince Blaster and Perceptor to turn into filthy mutineers? I can buy it from some obscure, background-filler, appeared-47-issues-ago-so-I’ve-forgotten-their-name-SORRY, but Perceptor? Blaster??

And the reason is both slightly unsatisfying and completely believable. And I can’t get into it if I’m going to dance around the plot points, so fair warning: see below for a completely spoiler-filled discussion of Lost Light #11.

Review: Troll Bridge

Review: Troll Bridge

“I’m a troll,” he said. Then he paused, and added, more or less as an afterthought, “Fol rol de ol rol.”

Thanksgiving is over, so it’s officially time to start shopping for Christmas presents! (Unless you’re one of those highly organized people who got their Christmas shopping done before October, in which case I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT.)

If you’re shopping for someone on your list who’s a literary enthusiast and loves fantasy/sci-fi, then you can’t go wrong with something by Neil Gaiman. Dark Horse has been releasing a steady stream of individual Gaiman stories, each one a little jewel of a tale illustrated by a different artist (Pixelated Geek has already reviewed two of them.)

I randomly picked up a copy of one of these from last year, and I was delighted to discover it was illustrated by Colleen Doran, who’s art I’ve been on-again-off-again familiar with for about twenty-five years. The combination of Doran’s art and Gaiman’s story Troll Bridge does not disappoint.

Review – Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

This week guest columnist Luciana Rabelo has a look at Jim Carrey’s documentary Jim & Andy.

It’s difficult to know for sure if Jim Carrey truly speaks from the heart or if it is all part of a carefully put together script, but Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton certainly is an amazing surprise.

Photo Gallery – Hasbro SDCC Exclusive: Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime

I finally got the chance to unbox Hasbro’s SDCC exclusive Transformer “Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime.” It only took me, what, four months? I was, uh, waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Yes? No? I admit it, procrastination is not my friend. But it’s an awfully attractive exclusive, and I can get behind the fact that in all seriousness the little Titan Master figure is named “Shreddicus Maximus.” See below for the photo gallery.

Review: Hand of Fate 2

NOTE: This review is written based off of a review code provided by the developer.

From game developer Defiant Development, Hand of Fate 2 puts you at the mercy of the game of life and death. You sit at a table across from the man known as “the dealer” as he walks you through adventures and scenarios of his design. However, as you delve deeper and deeper into the game, you wrestle more control over your own fate while still at the mercy of the cards and the dealer. The dealer is preparing for something, what that something is, could mean something disastrous for you. Hit the jump to read on! Read On
