Nerd-Base’s Guide To The Fall 2013 TV Lineup

THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR A FEW TV SERIES – CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED

This is a fantastic time in television history to be a geek. Sure in the past we’ve had lots of wonderful and dare I say, legendary shows, but it’s always been one or two shows worth watching at a time. No longer. Our community of fandoms now has a plethora of shows that fit many genres yet somehow all cater to the same “type” of people, which is wonderful. Starting next week, the fall season of television drops like a sledgehammer on our collective psyches and millions of people will be begging for larger storage on their DVRs. Let’s take a look at some of the great new shows and upcoming new seasons of successful mainstays:

Skottie Young’s Infinity #1 Variant Cover

In case you’re not savvy to the current Marvel Now! stories, there’s a mini-series going on now that, although a pretty fun read, is pretty obviously being made solely to explain who the character was at the end of Avengers (Thanos,  who is the main antagonist of the Infinity series), and how he ties into the Guardians of the Galaxy movie which comes out next year (READ: Filling in all the folks on what GotG is and why they should be excited about it), of which Thanos is rumored to be the main villain in.

Infinity is more or less a “world ending” event tie-ing in the stories of the Avengers, New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Iron Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy from the past year.  The effects of the Infinity storyline will lead in to a comic event titled Inhumanity detailing the after-effects of the famous Terrigen Mists covering the world and activating dormant “Inhuman” genes in individuals around the world. So, expect a few new heroes/villains to pop up over the next few months!

Well, issue number one is out, and it has perhaps the best Skottie Young cover yet, and I’ll be honest, the only reason I wrote this post is because I saw it and got so excited I felt the compulsion to share!

So, if any of you find the actual art, or a decent sized print of this, you either buy it for me and I’ll love you forever, or at least email me and point me in the right direction, because this is amazing!!

X-Box One release date

Xbox-One-logoI was surprised just a moment ago to find an email in my inbox from Microsoft announcing the release date for the Xbox One.  I was even more surprised by the date itself.  The Xbox One will get released on Friday, November 22nd.  There was a lot of speculation leading up to this that the Xbox One would get released the same day as the new Call of Duty: Ghosts which gets released on November 5th.

This also means that the PS4 has a one week advantage over the Xbox One.  In the grand scheme of things this probably doesn’t mean much because getting a system on Day One for both systems will be hard if you aren’t pre-ordering.  Microsoft is still taking pre-Orders for their Day One Editions of the console on their website.
