Firefly Cargo Crate 008: No Power in the ‘Verse

by xdustineflxon 06/06/2017
I’m back with another review for the oh-so-good Firefly Cargo Crate series. As I said last month, this month’s theme is “No Power in the ‘Verse”, dedicated to River Tam. River is one of the best sci-fi characters ever created (in my opinion, at least), so I’m looking forward to what’s in store this time […]

We Need To Talk About Gone Home

by The_Dark_Mikeon 04/06/2017
Right kids—settle down, get your finger out of there before it falls off, and listen to your 7th favorite internet loud mouth for a second.I’ve been playing Le Games Des Video for more years than I can remember. I love them. I can’t gosh darn get enough of them. Hell, I even have a mediocre […]

Nerd Block Classic: April 2017

by xdustineflxon 10/05/2017
I decided, after the last couple months, that I was going to cancel this subscriptions. The last few boxes have been very disappointing and, to be honest, I didn’t even want this one. However, I didn’t cancel in time, so I was charged for one final box, the theme being “Dressed to Kill”. I’m not […]

Rogue One #Betterthanempire

by Matt Gearyon 04/05/2017
SPOILER ALERT go no further if you don’t want it ruined for you. You have two options here… Listen to the audio below… or read it; up to you!   So as the title of this piece implies, I kinda liked Rogue One, a lot, like to the point where I have even  toppled my […]

Starfest 2017

by xdustineflxon 26/04/2017
This past weekend, I attended my first Starfest convention (on behalf of Geek Pride), the 40th anniversary of the event. Mainly a Star Trek/Star Wars festival, over the years, it has grown to include guests, activities, etc. from all different sci-fi and horror franchises. This year, everything from Firefly to Doctor Who to Dark Matter got covered (as well as […]

5 great Table Top Games that will ruin lives, families and friendships

by Matt Gearyon 05/04/2017
Table Top Gaming is currently coming into its own and with events like International Table Top Day, it will only get stronger. A bunch of good friends, getting together, having a few drinks, enjoying each other’s company and generally just having a good time… well, that is, unless they play these games. Table Top Gaming […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 007: The Worthier Part

by xdustineflxon 01/04/2017
Alright, I’m back with the latest edition of the Firefly Cargo Crate from Loot Crate and Quantum Mechanix. This time, the theme is “The Worthier Part”, dedicated to everyone’s favourite preacher-man, Shepher Derrial Book (played by the late, great Ron Glass. We miss you, Ron.). Let’s start with a graphic novel, dedicated to the man […]

Nerd Block Classic: February 2017

by xdustineflxon 28/02/2017
Another month is nearly at an end, which means it’s time for another Nerd Block review. This month’s theme is “Time Travel”, one of my favourite sci-fi concepts, so here’s hoping for some good items. Let’s take a look. There are six total items in this month’s box. Up first is what is usually the […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 006: YoSaffBridge

by xdustineflxon 01/02/2017
For the first time since Loot Crate and QMx started doing these, this month’s Firefly Cargo Crate is actually themed after a supporting character from the show instead of one of the main cast. And, they’ve got a crowd favourite, that being YoSaffBridge (a mash-up of her three aliases, Yolanda, Saffron and Bridgette), most commonly known as […]

Nerd Block Classic: January 2017

by xdustineflxon 20/01/2017
As mentioned last month, the them for the first Nerd Block Classic for 2017 is “Stark Industries”, with items based on Tony Stark/Iron Man. Should hopefully be a good box with that kind of theme, so let’s take a look. Item number one: a lapel pin. Designed to (obviously) look like the Arc Reactor, this […]
