What Holly is Excited for in 2016

New Year’s Eve has come and gone and we have officially entered in to 2016. Now we are not New Year’s resolutions sort of people, but as we enter in to a new year it is fun to reflect on what things that are coming up this year to be excited about. Some of them are new things and others are things that we actually get to enjoy this year. So here are a few things that I am excited for in 2016. Continue reading

WHAT JUST HAPPENED

A post shared by @ comparative_geeks on

The stars were right, and we bought a next generation console yesterday – an X-Box One.

There were financial things that lined up – credit card rewards, a great sale at the store (buy a console, get a free game! Hello, Tomb Raider!), and even a coupon for a cheaper controller (because, there’s two of us gaming…). And hey, Fallout 4 came with it, why not? We chose one without a Kinect, we liked 1TB over 500GB… but all of these are just pieces on the what we got.

What are we excited for in 2015?

So last year Holly and I each wrote a post about what we were excited about for 2014. Well, the lists were pretty similar, and we also feel like there were more things that we knew were coming in 2014. As in, we can’t name all that many things coming this year.

There are a bunch of movie announcements for the next several years, like from Marvel, but 2015 is a bit quieter on that front. And without the new consoles there aren’t a lot of games coming for us to be excited about. There are a couple of spring season shows coming, but they both start in the next few days and don’t feel like a big this-year sort of thing.

Anyway, it seems like our big news yesterday will be the biggest thing we’re excited for this year, but I’ve included a poll with the few things on our radar. If there’s more you’re excited for this year, let us know in the comments below!
