Doctor Who Season 8 Starts Saturday, August 23rd 2014

If you haven’t caught our new podcast, Timey-Wimey Tea Time, we have everything you need to know for Doctor Who Season 8.  This weekend will be a big one for sci-fi fans and Whovians worldwide yet, with all the buzz going around, there are still people that ask,

Doctor WHO??

With more than 50 years of shows, novels, fan fiction, audio dramas, games, and even comics under the belt, the Doctor Who series is something of a big deal.  Surprisingly, it’s not quite mainstream so you hipsters out there should give it a shot.  For realzies.

Doctor Who has romance, adventure, space exploration, time travel, eccentric characters, talking dogs, jelly beans, and high fashion sense.  There’s just so much to love in this series.  With Peter Capaldi coming in as the 13th Doctor, we old-school Whovians are wondering if the series is coming back to the roots.  Will this be the more serious, gritty, and suspenseful Doctor Who we’ve been hoping for?

Sorry, no Amy Pond..  And possibly no Clara.

 

Upcoming Geeky Antics Network Schedule Changes

We’ll be changing up our network schedule to make more room for random streams, marathons, hosting, and new podcasts.  As we already established, TGM won’t be a weekly vlog but we will be doing a monthly or bi-weekly TGM newsletter.  Please be sure subscribe to our Social Geeks mailing list so you never miss out on anything.  We’ll be using that as a way to compile all the latest geeky content and events on our network.

Timey-Wimey Tea Time is here and we have a couple of more shows coming up.  This new shows will provide platforms for us to talk about all facets of geek culture with the people that are most passionate about the subject matter.  There will be anime, fan fiction, creative writing, in-house artwork, science fiction, fantasy, and all sorts of delectably geeky discussions.  We hope you’ll join us as a guest or permanent host!

Doctor Who - Eleventh Doctor & Amy Pond - Matt Smith & Karen Gillan

Let’s Talk Doctor Who

Our Doctor Who fancast has been several months in the making and we need your help to figure out some topics to discuss.  Here’s a quick look at some of the topics we’ve been bouncing around:

  • Should K-9 come back as a companion?
  • Does Doctor Who need a strong female lead?
  • Should a future Doctor be a woman?
  • How do you introduce/ease friends and family into Doctor Who?
  • What is the appeal of the show?
  • What are the opportunities and things we are wishing they’d fix?
  • Biggest plot holes during the Matt Smith era.
  • Our favorite Doctors and companions.

Some of our guests include Matt Bradford, Alistar Kennedy, Chris Gannon, and Andy Fewtrell.  If you follow us at AllGames.com and the GANG, you’ll know just who we are talking about!

 

Gaming Trivia Power Hour

Check out the Gaming Death Podcast Episode 106 for Gaming Trivia Power Hour.   I went completely derp and suddenly forgot all my years of gaming, reminding me why I suck at trivia.  Man, I choked like the New York Knicks.  LOL…  It was fun and we should be doing more of that in the future so stay tuned!

 

Fundraising And Streaming Ramp-Up

We’ll be ramping up our streaming and video production efforts.  On a personal note, I will be doing more fundraising.  Many of you have encouraged me to make a push for fundraising so it will happen.  Expect some Twitch marathons and special streams soon.  For now, you can donate here:

The Gaming Death Podcast crew will also be doing Extra Life soon.  No date set as of yet but we should be doing some marathon streaming in October 2014.  For charity!

Gun Monkeys has been added to the pot for our latest giveaway.  Now one lucky winner will get Magic 2014 and Gun Monkeys for Steam.  w00t!

NOTE:  We *were* gonna add more prizes and winners but there just haven’t been enough shares..  Maybe next time!

Sooo, WTF is Gun Monkeys about?

Gorillas - QBASIC Gaming Bliss!

Remember Gorillas back in the [Q]BASIC days?  I equate Gun Monkeys to that but obviously with a more stylized, updated look and feel.  Anyone who loves Worms, Warheads, or anything of the sort should really dig Gun Monkeys.  It’s simple multiplayer action – with plenty of gun play.. and monkeys (Obezianka you should play this)!

Gun Monkeys - Gorillas For The New Age!

Get up in this giveaway action, y0.  You can win Gun Monkeys for Steam – WHEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Summer Vacation – How Do YOU Spend It?

July 2014 is going to be epic for the GANG..  But we’re taking baby steps.  It’s summer vacation for most of the world (well, at least here in the United States) so that means spending quality time with your family and loved ones..  And trying to stay sane. So how are you planning to spend your Summer, gang? Here at Geeky Antics we are going to squeeze in as much gaming as possible..  Many of us have fallen behind on our streaming but we will make up for it soon, we promise!  After all, we can’t let all those awesome games we picked up at GOG, Steam, Humble Bundle, or wherever go to waste!

As I mentioned in the TGM video, we will be releasing new podcasts this Summer.  Anyone into Doctor Who, Hearthstone, and/or game mechanics, amongst other topics should consider joining us!

Flash Fiction & Other Creative Writing Pieces Are LIVE!

Our storytelling area is officially live and in full effect.  Right now, Stan Faryna (@Faryna) and J M Bell (@StartYourNovel) are our main contributors but we’ll also be featuring third-party stuff.  We’re leaning towards lesser-known authors such as Wil Wheaton and Nika Harper.  As always, this is our way of spreading the love and giving the “little guys” more UMPH.

http://GeekyAntics.net/storytelling

Oh, and we have Monty Python!  I know we have some aspiring authors/writers out there so don’t be shy.  Share your creativity, fan fiction, and love!

…And now for something completely different…

 

Hearthstone Curse Of Naxxramas BREAKING NEWS

Blizzard finally got around to announcing their announcements and confirming the Curse Of Naxxramas pricing model.  As confirmed by Polygon:

One wing will cost $6.99 or 700 in-game gold. Blizzard will be selling bundles for people who want to buy multiple wings at once. Those who start playing during Curse of Naxxramas’ launch event can pay $19.99 for the four wings following the Arachnid Quarter.

If you pay for each Curse Of Naxxramas installment on it’s own, you’re looking at spending around $28 so the “season pass” seems like a great deal.  To clarify, there is one free wing to boot and then four additional ones.  Blizzard will make this a month-long roll-out..  It will be EPIC!

As promised, here are the leaked Curse Of Naxxramas photos! [Read more…]
