Although I got my start in blogging (long before the term was invented) by writing for various Command & Conquer fansites, I think I have always preferred the Age of Empires series to C&C.  Of course one of my favorite Age games is Age of Mythology.  It brought a lot of fun mechanics to the series and it was just a lot of fun to play with friends a little more so than some of the other games in the series in my opinion.  Anyway, before I talk about Age of Mythology all day, I better get to the point of this post and that is some amazing Isis cosplay!

This spectacular Age of Mythology Isis cosplay comes from cosplayer Major Sam.  I found her post about her recent Age of Mythology cosplay on Reddit and I knew I had to share it because not only is it awesome, I think it is also the only Age of Mythology cosplay I have ever seen.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that Isis is my favorite goddess to use in the game as well.  I think it turned out great and I look forward to seeing the cosplay she does in the future!  If you want more pictures of this cosplay, hit up the source link below as she has a couple more pictures on her Facebook page.

Following user feedback, Microsoft decided to reinstate the Start Menu in Windows 10. Now, it seems Solitaire is being brought back to life, too.

Is anybody else as excited about this news as I am?  I hope they bring back Minesweeper, Hearts and the pinball game from XP too although I have a feeling that may be hoping for a bit too much.

Also, let me know what you think of this new format for my posts.  I’m toying with some stuff in WordPress that I think will inspire me to post a lot more while giving the content on here a fresher look so please leave your thoughts in the comments below on if you prefer the old format or this new one!

In case you weren’t already excited enough for the new Star Wars movie, a second teaser trailer has been released!  There isn’t much here on plot details but still enough that you may need a change of pants by the time you are done watching it.

Check out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!

After wearing the same God of War hat for nearly two years (same design, 3 different hats), I’ve decided that its time to make a change.  However, I still want to stick with the whole warrior idea so when I found this really cool Klingon hat, I knew it had to be my next hat.  I’ve always wanted a Star Trek hat but I’ve never found a design I really like until now.

The amazing folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet Klingon hat for $24.99!  As for the size, it is adjustable with a back hook-and-loop strap.  While I will admit that is more than I typically care to spend for a hat, when combined with a little something else, they have a nice sale going on right now that really helps with the price.  If you use the code ‘BIGRED’ at checkout through Wednesday (4/15/2015), you can save 20% off an order of $50+, 25% off an order of $100+ or 30% off an order of $150+!  If you are looking to pick up some geeky gear at a nice discount, now is the time to do it!

Its been a while since I have posted any daily t-shirt sales since I have tried to cut back on buying them myself but when today’s shirts at TeeFury hit my inbox this morning, I knew that I not only had to buy both of them but I had to post about them too!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling these two amazing Doctor Who shirts for just $11 each today only!  One shirt is called Vincent Van Who (designed by John Sumrow) and it features a Van Gogh style painting with him holding a Sonic Screwdriver and the TARDIS while incorporating some elements of his most famous paintings (as a Van Gogh fan, this pleases me greatly).  The other shirt is called Anywhere (designed by upsidedownowl) and prominently features the TARDIS.  I have a Battlestar Galactica Viper and Star Wars X-Wing shirt just like it so obviously I must have this shirt too.

If you are a Doctor Who fan, these are obviously two must-have shirts!  I know I will be ordering both!

Death Star Latte Art

It has been a while since I have posted some nerdy latte art (search for latte art on the right to see all of the amazing latte art I have posted about in the past), so when I saw this Death Star latte art on the front page of the Star Wars subreddit, I thought I should post it on here.

This awesome Star Wars latte art features a great looking Death Star and Tie Bomber.  Sadly, I’m not sure who the barista is who made this to give them credit (let us know in the comments below if you know who they are), but they did a fantastic job!  The froth is strong with this one!

On a side note, I have always wondered if baristas charge extra to do stuff like this or are you just expected to tip more?  I’m not a coffee person so I’m unfamiliar with the situation.  Feel free to enlighten me in the comments below because I am truly curious!
