Hello everyone and welcome back once again. I would like to take a moment to explain something for someone out there that recently posted a comment online about the term “Geek”. The true definition of geek is:
1. An unfashionable or socially inept person. (guilty as charged on this one)
2. A person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest. (guilty on this one too)
Thus the reason behind the use of the word geek in reference to comics, sci-fi, ‘Star Trek’ , and etc. It’s not just a term for a technology savvy person. It is a broad term to describe just about anyone who is into anything.
I would like to also apologize for last week’s edition. It was done in a short amount of time and not much went into it. It was lackluster I know. I am hoping to make up for it this week. So on to the good stuff then shall we.
I am really looking forward to a video game coming out May 26 called ‘inFamous’. It’s a Playstation 3 exclusive that looks really promising, and is developed by Sucker Punch. They are the ones behind the popular ‘Sly Cooper’ series on the Playstation 2. I’ll be honest in that I have never played the “Sly Cooper” games but I have heard plenty of positive things on them in the past. Sucker Punch seems to be a really good studio, and one that is very invested in making great games.
If you gamers out there would like to challenge me in some Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, Street Fighter IV, Socom: Confrontation, Burnout Paradise, or Resistance 2 just send me a friend invite on the Playstation Network. It’s booka_2010, and be sure to tell me in the invite where you got the name and what game you would like to challenge me on. I’m always looking for some people to play against. We may even be able to post the winning score right here in Geek Nation each week.
How many of you out there would love to get together for a game tournament some time? If any of you are interested just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A few people I know are very interested in getting one started this summer and want to know if anyone would be willing to even attend the tournament if they put it together. I would love to go to one here in town.
Today we have a review of ‘Terminator Salvation’ from a movie critic, and one from me. I don’t totally agree with critics on many of the movies that they review, but then again I’m not really a film critic. Just a fan.
Well I think that’s enough jibber jabber for now. Until next time ladies and gents and remember:
We are out numbered by machines. Working around the clock,without quit. Humans have a strength that cannot be measured. This is John Connor. If you are listening to this,you are the resistance.
