Things are cooling down as we head into the winter months. Wrap yourselves up as you head out to shop for last-minute gifts or buy tickets to upcoming conventions. With two new consoles to play with, new games are coming out quickly! This winter, we have a couple game releases and a few conventions. You’ll also get to pick your end-of-year holiday of choice!
It was the Day of the Ninja! Nearly the opposite of Talk like a Pirate day, this day celebrated the invisible mercenaries.
We here at Nerdy but Flirty hope everyone who celebrates Christmas has a wonderful day, filled with nerdy presents. For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, you can celebrate Isaac Newton’s birthday! He’s the guy who figured out why apples fall from trees. This website suggests decorating a tree with fruit loosely, so that apples will occasionally fall down. In addition, there’s a “Grav-Mass” carol to sing too!
The Last Guardian is released. It’s the third game by the acclaimed development staff behind ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. In the game, a young boy and a bizarre, gigantic creature form a heartfelt bond as they attempt to maneuver their way through an unfriendly world.
