This Geek's week...


The Infant Aliens from Prodos Games' AVP game...


The Marines from AVP...
Modeling/Hobby:
- My copy of the AVP boardgame arrived after just 3 days, and I've dove right into making the custom bases and assembling the figures.  I'm currently working on the 5x Alien Stalkers...



Card/Board games:
- Played a game of Legendary Encounters (Alien), and man, it did NOT go well for my character!  I made it to the 2nd objective, then had an alien make it to the combat zone, followed by pulling a hazard, that sent 2 more aliens into the CZ as well... She did not survive the rest of the round!  The next 2 games were even worse, as I took a chestburster on turn 2 in one game, and shared a similar fate, taking another chestburster partway through the 3rd game too!  I finally managed to make it all the way to the Final Enemy in the 4th game, but he ended up doing me in.  Still, such a fun time!
Please?

- Played some Pokemon TCG with my daughter...

- I've been trying to find some local Weiss Schwarz players, but have been having no luck thus far.  I think playing this game is just not meant to be...



Stalker Aliens...
Video Games:
- On the Xbox, I've played a bit of The Division.  I've started to gear out my character, but I'm still not as hyped as I was.  Since I play solo, I'm missing out on a lot the game!  Perfect example being that I've had to pass up yellow gear drops in the DZ, simply because I knew, as a solo player, I'd never be able to extract it and I didn't feel like giving free stuff to the a-holes in that game!

- Also on Xbox, I downloaded The Wolf Among Us as one of this month's free games.  It's pretty interesting, and I like the comic book style!

The Preds....
- On my phone, I've played a little bit of Pokemon Shuffle, and MTG Duels.

- To get my WWII game fix, and War Thunder freezing up every time I load, I downloaded World of Tanks.  Played a few rounds of it, but still, not my favorite...

- Played several rounds of PTCGO.  They've really ramped up the speed since I've been away, and I'm not sure how I feel about it...



Books/Comics:
- Finished up my book on the "Year of Mercy", and have gone back to reading the 30k novel, "Betrayer".  (Not feelin' it though)
 
 
As always. be sure to check my twitter account on the right every now and then, as I often post my WIP pics on there first, giving twitter followers a first look at my new stuff! (and I do tweet daily)  Hopefully the AVP game will re-motivate my hobby side!  I'm also currently looking for a card game to actively play and put my resources into, but who knows if that will work out or not...

Until next time,

This Geek's (4) Week(s)...


"Alien Day" is coming up on 4-26-16... mark your calendars!  Movie Marathon!
Modeling/Hobby:
- I ordered today (4-19-16) the AVP boardgame and some sheets of Plastcraft Sci-fi flooring to make some scenic, ship bases.  Hopefully they'll arrive soon, and get me out of this major "gamer funk" I've been in for the last few months...


Tabletop Games:
- Played a few proxy games of GF9's TANKS with my daughter, just to try it out.  While super simple, it was still pretty fun, and would be a great way to use all those 15mm tanks I've painted up, but never actually used...


Card/Boardgames:
- Played several games of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter.  She finally decided to accept my help with deck building, so I dismantled ALL of my decks to help her rebuild hers...

- Played a game of Rampage with my daughter.


Video Games:
My new, more patriotic Halo5 look...  I still suck @Halo.
- On Xbox, I've played a TON of The Division, hitting lvl 30 a few weeks ago. Though, I'm already getting bored of the end game, and the Dark Zone just frustrates the hell out of me!  I've also played a bit of MTG: Duels, and I picked up Alien: Isolation too, which is slow paced, but intense!  I've also gone back and played a few rounds of Halo free-for-all.  I also played in the Battleborn open beta.  It was fun, and really enjoyed the humor, but I think if I'm going play an FPS, then I'll probably just stick to Halo to be honest...

- I've also been playing a bunch of Disney Infinity with my daughter...

- On my phone, I've been playing a bunch of Hearthstone and a little Drop Assault and Pokemon Shuffle.  I've also downloaded MTG Duels on my phone too.

- On the DS, I've been playing a bit of Pokemon ORAS.


Books/Comics:
- Finished reading Halo: Last Light, and it was really good!  A nice little murder mystery, wrapped in some espionage, with some Spartans and Aliens thrown into the mix for good measure.  I've been in a bit of a Warhammer mood, so I started the 30k novel: Betrayer, though I put it aside after about 100 pages in favor of a theological book.  (Spiritual growth FTW!)


TV/Movies/Anime:
- I'm now all caught up on Naruto!  I've started watching Sword Art Online II. 


Until Next time,
