The year has flown by very quick and Christmas is just around the corner again! Ugly (and not so ugly!) Christmas sweaters have recently made quite a comeback, adding more and more cool designs to the collection. Thanks to that we can now get sweaters (or even jumpers and t-shirts!) with various topics, from Star Wars to comic books and, of course, some gaming ugly Christmas sweaters. I chose a selection of these sweaters to show you from my favorite store, Merchoid, which offers free worldwide shipping. Continue Reading
Earlier this year I have been approached by the brand Eighty Sixed, who are a small gaming merchandise store offering game related t-shirt and keychains. They offered to send me some of their products for my blog to review, so I took the opportunity to do a mini-interview with the vice-president Danny Shnorhokian.
Rocket League is one of my favorite games of all time. Developed and published by Psyonix for Microsoft Windows and Playstation 4 in July 2015 (Xbox, OS X and Linux in 2016), it’s become a widely popular and award-winning multiplayer game and even entered the professional e-sports. For those unfamiliar with the game, it’s basically soccer with rocket boosted cars, plus you can sparkle your car up with various funny antennas and toppers.
Although this game has been around for almost 2 years, the officially licensed Rocket League shirts and hoodies have come out only very recently over at J!NX. And if you haven’t seen them yet, click below to find out more! Continue Reading

If you are a geek and have been around the internet for a while, I think that you might be familiar with the term ‘cosplay’. For those of you who are lost, cosplay means ‘costume play’, where people portray their favorite characters from movies, games, tv shows, comics, etc. Cosplayers usually don’t just walk around every day like that but instead choose conventions of all kinds to show their love and geekery.

Oh, yes, it’s that time again! Time to pick this debate back up and add my own 5 cents. I’m well aware this debate has been going around ever since people started collecting memorabilia. Besides the old question why do we collect memorabilia, there’s also the question of unboxing action figures and memorabilia. Some people are for it, some people strongly against and it has caused quite a few fights among the internet folks. Continue Reading

My friend E. gifted me the Assassin’s Creed: The Complete Visual History book for Christmas 2015 and I have to tell you, it’s completely stunning.

Oh, how wrong I was.
If you want to see what’s inside, come with me… Continue Reading
