Until Dawn: A 2spooky Game Review

Until Dawn

Cuz it’s Halloween. Until Dawn for PS4. A survival horror game. Finally. It’s spooky, and perfectly themed for the season. Made by Supermassive Games, who are mostly known for a whole lot of Little Big Planet DLC, a remake of Killzone I put as much effort into as I did any other Killzone (own them all, finished none, just like everyone), and a Dr. Who game. Ok…. first of all. No one asked for a Dr. Who game. I’M NOT A FAN OF DOCTOR WHO, JUST WARNING YOU NOW. IT CONFUSES ME. Here’s my issue with Dr. Who. You ever stumbled … Read more

Collecting: I might need these pizza boxes later!!

Collecting! Trent Reznor, on the topic of collecting, once said “I pick things up, I am a collector. And things, well things, they tend to accumulate.” Trent Reznor also looks like if Alan Rickman and Dylan McDermott had a child. Ain’t even mad about that. 20 years to grow into a face like that, fine. Most of the internet thinks the song is about depression and dwelling on the past. Not me pal, I think he’s just very adamant about his collection, whatever it might be. A misprint Beanie Baby collection that got out of hand, Jem & Rio Pacheco … Read more

Spit Take: Borrowed Time, What Animators Do On Their Days Off

Welcome, faithful readers, to our first Spit Take. After a while, we get tired of hearing ourselves blather on about things. So, we want to hear what you think. We’ll give you a little insight into the subject, then it’s up to you, yes YOU…no, not you…you…in the back, to tell us your take on it. It’s pretty much what the internet was designed to do; allow people to blow hard about things of which they know little. Shall we? What do creatives do during their time off from work? They create! That’s exactly what Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou … Read more

Everyday Carry: Things That Make You Better

Your everyday carry (EDC) is all the things that you will (generally) have on your person if you leave the comfort of your home. Knives, multitools, watches, flashlights, flash drives, pens, and whatever else makes your daily life easier? That’s your EDC. EverydayCarry.com exists to document hundreds of peoples’ EDCs and how to buy the items contained in them. It’s a fantastic way to spend your time drooling over the contents of other people’s pockets. My personal favorite contains not just the standard “phone, wallet, knife, watch”, but also ChapStick, sunglasses, and a pink Dunkin Donuts donut with sprinkles. There are EDCs that … Read more

Indie titles: Give a hoot, read a comic!

Greetings friends! Did you know GeekDayton has an Instagram page? We do! It’s chock full of pictures and…. pictures. Click the follow button and come with us into a world of photography we force-feed into your smart devices! But we’d been asked recently “Hello GeekDayton, who is buying all of those comics you post on your IG and what’s wrong with that person?” (I had to omit most of the swearing.) Why it’s none other than me! I’m very sorry. But now for those few who have noticed I have a tendency to pick up first issues of a lot of … Read more

IN LUKE’S WE TRUST: GEEKING OVER GILMORE GIRLS AT GHOSTLIGHT

Gilmore Girls Netflix coffee shop takeover at Ghostlight

Early this morning, mostly still asleep as I slinked into the bathroom, it occurred to me that waiting in line for god knows how long for a free cup of coffee with a bunch of crazed groupies might not be the best use of my time. Alas, fear of missing out, the great motivator, spurred me onward. I headed out to Ghostlight Coffee, one of more than 200 coffee shops across the country who, in partnering with Netflix to promote the Gilmore Girls revival A Year in the Life (coming November 25, 2016), gussied themselves up with Luke’s Diner swag … Read more

Un-Con Ohio X: This Weekend in Piqua

There’s a unique event going on this Friday and Saturday in Piqua. A small little convention, different from others, that started with a few friends and has grown into something else entirely. That event is Un-Con X. The whole thing started years ago as a concept imagined by a man named Joe Manning. Manning called it “The Camp Dover Peace Conference.” “He was retired military. He was retired from working, but he believed in a convention that was somewhat similar in structure to the dinner of Star Trek 6—the bringing together of the Federation and the Klingons—and so he envisioned … Read more
