Brooklyn Geekfest Header

This weekend Brooklyn Geekfest returns to the Gregory Hotel in Bay Ridge for the second straight year. The “comic con-like” convention is presented by Gotham City Games, a local video game store in the neighborhood. Like any good convention, the event will host an adult and child cosplay contest offering cash prizes, as well as a variety of vendors shopping toys, art, comics, retro games and systems and more. But where Geekfest sets itself apart are the gaming tournaments.

Dungeons & Dragons Xanathar's Guide To Everything book banner

Dungeons & Dragons: Xanathar’s Guide To Everything
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards of the Coast
Release Date: November 21, 2017

Creating magic as they always do, the creative team at Wizards of the Coast has deemed the world worthy of a new guide book. Xanathar’s Guide To Everything is an essential addition to the world’s greatest roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons! And better yet, at least for me, these great folks sent me not just an advance copy but they, in fact, sent me two! One of each cover. But enough of my shameless bragging, let me tell you about this newest release!

This tome is comprised of almost 200 pages of lore, ranging from arcane spells and items to specialization and options within character classes. This is in addition to the additional material presented for Dungeon Masters. In fact, the supplemental book is broken into three primary parts with two additional appendices. So much is packed within these pages that I will probably not even begin to do it justice. Nevertheless, I will do my best.

If you’re a fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones, chances are you’ve heard of the “Beautiful Death” series. For those of you who aren’t familiar, the series comes from artist Robert M. Ball and features images inspired by a significant death in each and every episode we’ve seen.

See Brand New ‘Futurama’ Footage In ‘Worlds Of Tomorrow’ Trailer

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow

If you’ve been twitching and itching at the extreme lack of new Futurama in your life these days, I have just the thing for you. Booze. Lots of booze. It helps you forget all the evil people who have repeatedly taken the show away from you while other animated series go on and on. Hell, some of those shows are old enough to drink with you.

But that’s not all (Call now and you’ll receive…). Earlier this year we found out about Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, an upcoming mobile game. Not just any mobile game, though. The original Futurama crew helped with the game, including the voice cast. That means it’s the closest thing to new episodes we currently have to look forward to.

A teaser trailer for Worlds of Tomorrow has been released online. And yes, it features brand new animated footage and voice acting to enjoy, just like we got on the show. Check it out below!

Brooklyn Geekfest 18

It’s a strange occurrence to walk through a trendy Brooklyn neighborhood and see people dressed in costume walking in and out of a hotel… in Spring! Last Saturday, the Best Western Gregory Hotel in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, hosted the first annual Brooklyn Geekfest, brought to you by Gotham City Games. The miniature comic-con style festival featured two rooms, one dedicated entirely to gaming, featuring multiple consoles, and ongoing tournaments throughout the day. The other was filled with vendors selling toys, homemade video art, and of course video game accoutrement. As is now tradition with any geek-themed convention, there was a cosplay contest for both adults and children.

Check out our interview with host and the owner of Gotham City Games, Ralph Pugliese, and our image gallery below.
