With the release of Suicide Squad this week, Harley Quinn products have been everywhere! Just the other day we went into our local comic book shop Heroes and Fantasies and saw an entire display of Harley Quinn merchandise. Harley Quinn Pops, outfits, figurines, you name it they had it. This is no doubt related to the film release, but it goes beyond that. There has always been a fascination with Joker’s lady. But why?

July has been jam-packed with craziness! Not that I’m complaining. I would much rather be busy doing fun things than be sitting around bored all the time. I thought that this would be a great time to share with you my favorite things in July.

This War of Mine

This War of Mine : Game Review

Video Games

War is ugly. It is treacherous and dangerous and sometimes the innocent get hurt. This War of Mine is a game that dives into the ugly bits of war that we tend to push to the back of our minds. The parts of war that get swept under the rug. In This War of Mine you don’t play as the white knight crashing through the wall to kill the bad guy. You play as a the innocent family hiding in the corner of the room. The forgotten in a war between good and evil.

Pokemon Go! A New-Geek’s Perspective

Fandom Friday/ Video Games

Before we get started, go check out Kayla from Epicfied‘s Pokemon Q&A.

I grew up in the era where Pokemon reigned supreme. I, however, was not one of those kids who carried around their Pokemon cards wherever they went. I didn’t play Pokemon games on my Gameboy, and I definitely never watched the show. It wasn’t because I necessarily scoffed at the idea, it just never came up and I never pursued it. If you read my origin story part I, then you know that public judgement had something to do with it too.

It wasn’t until the release of Pokemon GO that I even thought about entering the world of Pokemon. I mean sure, they are cute (some of them), but I’m an adult. And I already have a plateful of fandoms to juggle. How could I broach entering a new one? Then I saw a lot of my geeky blogger friends playing and I thought I would give it a try.

Gone Home : Game Review

Video Games

Another in the long list of “to-play” games, I finally got my mitts on Gone Home when it was discounted during the Steam Summer Sale. This is the same sale where I happened to score Firewatch, if you recall. If you don’t recall, go check it out here! Gone Home has been one of those indie games that I have heard about since I started dabbling in indie gaming. I was super excited to experience the magic.

Tina Belcher : Funko Swap

Funko Swap : Buttloose Tina

Fandom Friday

When DePepi brought up the idea of a Funko POP swap a couple months ago, I was one of the first to volunteer! First, I love my geek girl bloggers. Second, I LOVE POPS! It’s borderline ridiculous. I am a 26 year old mother who collects toys. I’ve reached a level of geek I never thought I could accomplish.

We were instructed to make a group of 5 POPs on our wishlist and then send it to DePepi. She matched everyone up and then ensued the hard part: waiting.

Actually the waiting part wasn’t so bad. As I mentioned in my origin story part I, my summer has been a non-stop party! There have been people in and out of my house since the beginning of June (not that I’m complaining). So when I got back from our Fourth of July trip to Alabama and saw that there was a package for me, I was utterly confused.

Firewatch : Game Review

Video Games

I have been stalking this game on Steam for awhile now. And I mean a long while. So when Steam had their summer sale not too long ago and I saw Firewatch on the list, I jumped at the chance to get it. I promptly downloaded it on our Alienware Alpha and played it…all afternoon. No joke. This game is the bees knees.
