The new Dark Souls II trailer is here

 

 

Ready to die again?! I know I am. The graphics are visually stunning and it appears there are new ways on how you can get your ass kicked, because I didn’t get enough of a beat down with the first game.

So for all you masochist’s the game is already released on PS3 and Xbox 360. April 25th it’ll be available for Steam/PC. If you’re that anxious and impatient you could always pick up a copy for the console to hold you over for the next 6 weeks.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Editions

With the new release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remastered (for Playstation 3 and Vita only) nearing for March 18th Square Enix is giving us the option for limited edition goodies. There are two versions, the collector’s edition and limited edition. Basically, it’s just a fancy way of saying one version is more expensive with added merchandise than the other. There is one thing that is a bit disappointing, Vita only has the standard game and X-2 is only downloadable. I feel as if there isn’t enough love for the PS Vita. The up side is with a pre-order you do get free art cards.

Here is the PS Vita edition. Que in sad trombone.

   The Ps3 collector’s edition, it includes.

  • Full size art book packaging, featuring over 40 pages of imagery from the beautiful world of Spira.
  • Final Fantasy X HD Remaster Original Soundtrack Disc Music, imported directly from Japan. Over 100 tracks and six hours of music; MP3 download included.
  • Five lithographs of iconic artwork and characters.

The limited edition, which you can choose for no additional cost with the pre-order includes.

  • Featuring an elegant collection of concept art and commentary from the original Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 development teams.
  • Limited edition artbook packaging requires pre-order of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for Playstation 3.

 

Depending on your nostalgia and finances you get to pick between total fandom or I just want the game, but free stuff is nice fandom. Personally I’m going to be getting the collector’s edition, being that I’m a total sucker for original sound tracks. Going to be playing To Zanarkand on repeat as loud as possible until I get various noise complaints.

And we’re back

Unyielding Geekery is finally revitalized, like the protagonist who falls into an abyss of misfortune and misery, only to return a new! Someone please que in a Final Fantasy VII reference.

Let me address a few things. I had to leave the site due to moving out of state and starting college. I know everyone else is busy with work and school as well, as of now I will be the only one updating the site. I hope to build a new foundation of bloggers and get Unyielding Geekery back on it’s feet.

Hey everyone,

As you may have noticed, we have not been doing well at keeping the site or podcast updated.  This site is a hobby for all of the contributors and we all rely on free time.  Sadly, this is something we have not had because real life doesn’t care about the internet.  I wanted to put this out there so everyone can understand…We have not abandoned the site.  We are victims to real life events and our time to update the site has become scarce.   With all of that said, we are not going away.  Content/podcast may be a little scarce for a while, but we will update as best as we can.  Hopefully, in the coming weeks/months we will get back to where we were.  Providing you with all of the fun and geeky news you search for.  Please just bare with us as we work out life’s events.  Thank you for all of your support!

Pond Life Online Shorts Lead Up to Doctor Who Series 7 Premiere

This is a little behind, but since Doctor Who is starting again this weekend I felt like I should inform you.  If you don’t know, BBC is running a 5 part mini-series online leading up to the first episode of Doctor Who called “Pond Life”.  The series is 5 brief minute long shorts showing some of the shenanigans that happens when we’re not watching.  Tomorrow will be the last webisode…so if you’re a Doctor Who fan go check them out!  The first installment is above.

The Gamers: Hands of Fate

If you’re a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, chances are you are familiar with the Gamers series. The first, low budget Gamers movie went off to become an underground hit. In 2008, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising expanded on the universe and is now a cult classic within the gaming community. And now, they are back to continue the tradition, with the filming of the third installment – Gamers: Hands of Fate.

If you were a fan of the first two films, if you know to hide behind a pile of dead bards, if you play Dungeons and Dragons, or if you’re just a geek who believes in supporting local and indie projects, head over to Kickstarter and donate a few bucks to help make this film a reality.

Doctor Who is back on September 1st


The BBC blog has announced the official return date of the Doctor will be Saturday, September 1st 2012. The beloved series returns with opening episode “Asylum of the Daleks” to get the ball rolling.

If you’re like me the wait for the Doctor can seem like forever so starting Monday, August 27 and continuing through the week the BBC will begin showing “The Pond Life”. Not much is known about the 5 part mini-series at the moment but the BBC blog had this to say.

 

Featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, this five-part mini-adventure premieres on this site at noon on Monday with parts 2-5 stripped daily across the week. Written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Saul Metzstein, the omnibus version of Pond Life will be shown on the BBC’s Red Button on Saturday, 1st September.

Chris Chibnall commented, ‘Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch-up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series. It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives. Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it’s fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring.’

Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, said ‘Chris has written a beautiful, heartfelt and wickedly funny piece about the adventures the Ponds have been having with the Doctor since we last saw them on-screen. It’s not long till the series itself will be back with a vengeance – but in the meantime, Pond Life is a truly heart-warming piece about our best-loved companions and their madcap relationship with their raggedy Doctor.’

 

“The Pond Life” sounds like an excellent lead in to the new series and I cannot wait to see the new adventures of the Doctor and co.

 

.Hack Anime and Games

I have always been a .Hack fan.  I watched .Hack//Sign and played through most of the original .Hack games.  Lately I have been catching up on the anime series which made me think a few things.  With all of the MMOs out there, why has no one tried to introduce some sort of hidden event like .Hack?  WOW always has world, seasonal, and end game events…What if they decided to leave one little NPC to drive a hidden quest line that could tie in to reality?  This type of event would be perfect for folks like me who want to play the game, but not spend every day doing daily quests or dungeons.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about I urge you to look into the .Hack//Sign anime series.  What do you think?  Is this something that would be a game changer for all the MMORPGs out there?

Star Trek: Las Vegas 2012

 


This past weekend Trekkies from all over the nation gathered in Las Vegas for Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Convention. I attended this event and, as always, it is quite an experience to be surrounded by people who love (are obsessed) with the same thing.

This year marked the 25th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation and notable TNG cast members were present, including the hilarious Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner and Michael Dorn (to name a few).  For me, the highlight of the weekend was the Star Trek: Voyager reunion. Kate Mulgrew is surprisingly hilarious and the chemistry between the cast members was electric and entertaining. If you get a chance, this panel is definitely worth watching.
