Week in Geek: October 3-9, 2013

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Want to know what happened the past few days in nerd culture? WEEK IN GEEK is your quick fix to catch up with the rest of the fanboys out there.

Nerdy current events in geek culture for this week


VIDEO GAMES

The International Committee of the Red Cross wants there to be consequences from your actions in video games that violate the Geneva Convention.

My take: Give me a break. It's a video game. Let people fantasize and do things that you don't want them to do in real life. What's next, punishing people for not following traffic laws in Grand Theft Auto?

Mad Catz has a console coming out similar to the Ouya called the M.O.J.O. which will cost $250.

My take: I know I won't be getting one. Will you?


COMIC BOOKS

Villains Month apparently did very well for DC Comics, topping the charts and selling over 4.3 million copies.

My take: Good job, DC! If you're interested in reading up on this, check out Ryan Little's latest posts on the subject..

HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES

Author Tom Clancy passed away at the age of 66.

My take: Our condolences to his friends and family.

TECHNOLOGY

Apple will be having an invite-only conference on October 22nd, which is the same day that Microsoft will launch the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets.

Paden's take: Could this involve an unveil of the new model of iPad?

MISCELLANEOUS

Alice Cooper could be playing the Green Goblin in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark?

My take: .....weird....

IGN reports that there are even more plans for Disneyland to feature Star Wars in the amusement park.

My take: I've only been to Disney World, but more Star Wars is always better. Disney just keeps upgrading with the likes of Star Wars and Marvel in their ranks.

Watch out for this segment each and every Wednesday. We'll see you next week!
