For those that are in the area of Maryland and DC (and Viriginia as well if you’re willing to make the trip). On the campus of the University of Maryland, there lies a little gem known as the TerpZone. It’s open for anyone to use, even those that aren’t students. They welcome any and everyone.
So what does the TerpZone offer? Well, they offer many things! They offer bowling, billiards, gaming, ping pong, arcade games, game nights (spades, etc.), and a lot more.
Most Fridays, the TerpZone offers video game tournaments for anyone to participate in for FREE! The games range from Call of Duty: Ghosts to Super Smash Bros. Brawl to NBA 2K14. They have their sign ups for the tournaments at 6pm with it starting at 8pm.
The schedule for the rest of this semester (until early May) is as follows:
Mario Kart Wii : March 28th
FIFA 14 : April 4, April 11, April 18, April 25
Super Smash Bros. Brawl : May 2nd
For more information on the video game tournaments, the contact is Leonard Greene at email@example.com. For any general questions about The TerpZone or to find out more, the contact is Kevin Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The light novel series better known by its anime, Sword Art Online, has already spawned a console game and it looks like its second console game is getting a great treatment. The first game has only been available on the Japanese market to the chagrin of many fans. The second game has been announced for release in Taiwan with a great perk. The game will be released in traditional Chinese and English. Which means the fanbase of English speaking countries around the world may cheer to this Asian release.
I can’t play them because of DRM you say? No worries! The game will be released on the PS Vita, a completely region free console (thank you Sony). So pre-order a copy at your local importer today, today is a great day for English speaking anime fans everywhere.
Set in an alternate storyline this game will probably surprise and please you in ways the anime couldn’t.
This new game will be released April 24 of this year.
Lately, I’ve been really getting into geek fashion and, man, has my wallet been crying tears of sadness, while I cry tears of joy! I have been obsessing over Black Milk Clothing, but through other people, I’ve discovered another great company that focuses on geek fashion – Mitmunk!
Mitmunk describes themselves with the following:
MITMUNK is a Vancouver-based design studio run by Wayne Elliott and Heather Joan Tam, specializing in printed apparel and accessories.
Wayne is an artist with a background in video games. As founder of and designer for MITMUNK, he brings his love for striking, experimental street fashion into his artwork for Mitmunk’s printed clothing.
Heather is an interdisciplinary artist and Curator Emeritus of a community museum.
We love vintage illustrations, etchings, lithographs, serigraphs; the way ink sits on paper; blacks and grays and whites. You’ll find these elements in our designs, which are inspired by and use images from historic, public domain printed matter.
Mitmunk is a bit pricey, but a little more affordable than Black Milk Clothing ($72.35 vs. $80-90 – just leggings comparison). The benefit to Mitmunk over other geek fashion that I’ve seen so far is they offer bigger sizes. Other lines like Black Milk stop at XL, but Mitmunk goes all the way up to 3XL.
I think that their clothing looks great and I can’t wait for my first piece to come in!
To check out their line of leggings, you can go here.
FUNimation has been releasing clips from the Attack on Titan English dub to get people excited about the release of the first half of the season in June and for Anime Boston, which is going on right now.
Here is the latest clip:
With each and every clip, I get more and more excited for when I can get my hands on Attack on Titan – Part 1 with the English dubbing. Whether I get the Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition, or Standard Edition is still up in the air.
“Watches are good at telling time but, imagine having useful, actionable information there precisely where you need it automatically,Today we are announcing that Android is extending to wearables”
-David Singleton Director of engineering, Android
Watch out Samsung, we know that your original Galaxy Gear didn’t fair so well in the market and at this moment Galaxy Gear 2 cleaned up some missteps but, Google has decided to show you a seemingly better way in doing things. Don’t get me wrong, you rock in making phones and tablets and it sure is odd that good ole google sure isn’t even shaking your tree a little bit but, check this thing out…
Crisp UI, Sleek bezel & band designs.
If first looks could kill I’m sure the death recipient would have a smile on its face. Google’s Android Wear will be hitting our stores “later this year” infused with Big G’s very own Operating System. Android Wear will be buddying up with partners such as; Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola, and Samsung… HOLD ON, Samsung? Oh Google, you sly dog you. Now the upcoming wearable technologies coming from the search engine/E-mail client giant will really be interesting.
“To bring this vision to life we are working with consumer electronics manufactures, chip makers and fashion brands who are committed to fostering an ecosystem of watches in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes “
-David Singleton Director of engineering, Android
I would really like to now know whom is the company that created the device(s) announced by Google? Like these bezel designs of these Android Wear watches.
With Google App integration throughout these badboys should fly off the stores shelves.
Alex Faaborg Designer, Android elaborated on the newly designed custom UI that all the Android wearable devices will have embedded in them stating…
“(The UI) is based around voice and contextual information that’s reactive to your surroundings… it has to be incredibly fast, incredibly glanceable. There is only two components: Information that is most relevant to you and the ability to speak to it and do a quick command.”
Recently Announced Motorola’s Moto 360
Weather, calendar information, important meetings, integrated GPS locating where you are, how far you are from a scheduled meeting and how long it will takes you to arrive there will be incorporated in these devices. Things that are most important to you will roam around with you all over the place like checking your favorite sports teams scores on games you cannot view at that time. You can also respond naturally to messages received simply by speaking to Google Now “Reply” and say whatever that needs to be relayed to your contact and then it automatically send out your message. GPS services also can be initialized on the fly by asking google to search nearby locations for you like ” OK, Google find nearby movie theatres” and swiftly and accurately the device will find them just like that.
LG’s recently announced “G-Watch”
It was not mentioned if the wearables will be tethered to your smartphones like Samsungs Galaxy Gear series time will only tell as more information trickles out closer to the launching of these devices. I can say for sure if these Android wearables can be independant of the smart phones i definitely would love to have one of these pretty puppies. Even still what Google officially announced yesterday is still a great advancement in wearable technologies and thats always a great thing. Stay tuned for updated information on Android Wear & other geekery here at RealOtakuGamer.com
I’m pretty happy with this clip! It wasn’t what I necessarily expected Levi to sound like, but it still fits him and his personality. The same goes for Hanji. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Are you as excited as I am? We are TWO days away from launch! Final Fantasy X is my favorite of the Final Fantasy franchise, with VII and IX after that! So, don’t chew my head off for not picking 7 as my favorite.
Since this was my favorite installation, I decided to make sure I’d get the Collector’s Edition! At $80, it seems very well worth it, especially if you’re an avid fan and love the soundtrack (amongst many other wonderful things in this set)! Here is the unboxing courtesy of Square Enix North America (NA):
Pretty darn cool right? Exactly! It’s such an amazing deal too!
Now, here’s the NA Launch Trailer!:
Final Fantasy X was a game I enjoyed as a kid and spent endless hours playing and replaying. I hold it very near and dear to my heart so you can only imagine the beginnings of my excitement for this HD Remaster.
What are your thoughts so far with this HD Remaster of X and X-2? Would you like to see this treatment for another game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
