By the time this post goes up, I’ll be at New York Comic Con. Yay, technology! This week in nerd news:
-We all know Ohio State University’s marching band for their zany and fun marching routines, like their recent rendition of Gangnam Style. Well, this weekend they performed a medley of video game tunes, including the likes of Pokemon, Mario, Zelda, and Tetris. I admit, I teared up a bit. My whole childhood flashed before my eyes.
-Alright, I admit it: I'm a D&D noob. And if you're like me and are interested in learning, it can be a little overwhelming on how to get started. Luckily, I found these videos of Acqusitions Inc., a D&D group made up of Wil Wheaton and the dudes from the Penny Arcade comics. Even if you don't understand what's going on, they're still amusing to watch.
-If you're looking to throw your money at something, be sure to check out the Castle Dice Kickstarter. Castle Dice is a dice game (obviously) that focuses on building castles (obviously x2). If you're a fan of games like Elder Sign, but want more competition, Castle Dice looks like the game for you. They have a free PDF version of the game and rules, but a donation is needed for a set of dice. With 24 days and only 1/3 of their goal left, be sure to fund this Kickstarter!
Okay, I'm done here, I'm probably off waiting for a panel with a bunch of smelly people right now. If you're unfortunate enough to not be at NYCC, be sure to check out Kristina's Answerly video later today!
