Upcoming Plans on Comparative Geeks!

Hello dear readers!

Holly and I are headed on vacation for a bit, and we’ve done our best to have things continue running here on Comparative Geeks in our absence. We might check in on WiFi occasionally, but for comments and all, sorry in advance for slow response!

Here’s the upcoming calendar of events:

This week

We have a few pieces of media we’re considering this week – Big Hero 6, and the Doctor Who: Series 8 finale. Meanwhile on our Tumblr, we’re dipping back into our Dragon Age past, because Dragon Age: Inquisition comes out next week! We have our special edition preordered, and it should be here when we get back, waiting and glorious.

We have not caught Interstellar before leaving, and are planning on seeing it on vacation in a fancy theater if we can. It’s almost 3 hours! I’m super excited for this movie, but discussion of the film will have to wait, so hopefully you are interested too and are going to go see it!

Next Week

Next week we are finally doing something we have been waiting to do: we are exploring Bioshock Infinite. This was a title that we loved from last year, though we took a while playing it. Luckily, even taking a while at it, no one spoiled us on it. In fact, we saw several times online in articles or videos where people actively stopped themselves from saying anything, from spoiling it. This was a hush-hush game that people chose to be hush-hush about.

I wrote about the statute of limitations with this game, and how it seems to really be hanging on. In that spirit, we waited to write about the game, and we’re letting you know we’re going to do it all at once in the one week. So if you still haven’t played the game and intend to, this might not be the safest place next week! Also, our Tumblr will be sharing some of the art/scenes from the game as well to go along with it.

Thanksgiving Week

For Thanksgiving week, we have some guest posts for you, both from some returning guest bloggers, and from a new one! I hope you love them, and we are very thankful to them for helping us out to make it through being away from the blog.

On the Tumblr, we’ll be sharing out some advance images leading up to the Black Friday post, I suppose, so if you’re not following us on Tumblr, give it a look!

We will definitely be around and back by December, but until then, have an excellent month!

More Game of Thrones Afterthoughts

Yesterday Holly gave some thoughts after the end of Game of Thrones Season 4. Like her, I have read the books and watched the show and wanted to share something I loved, and something I didn’t, from the season. It’s interesting to think about, because it’s a book that has been split into two seasons – and it’s working its way towards two books that split up and became two books simultaneously. At this point, the show really has a life of its own and a pacing of its own… which can be good and bad.

For one thing, it’s good because it gives us characters like Oberyn Martell. On the other hand, it’s bad because to avoid introducing too many new characters, it left out a scene I think is important. To say more would be spoilers, so let’s head on to spoiler-land below!
