GOVG – Video Game Night #2

example-of-govg-discord

Our first one was pretty successful all around, I’d say. We had people coming along to play video games from all around the country, let alone from Bristol. So if you’re a fan of what we do here on GeekOut South-West, why not join our Discord group? What games do we have, what will we definitely play and what are you excited to play at this months GOVG – Video Game Night? Let us know in the comments!

UK Games Expo 2017

UKGE Logo

Last year I managed to attend the Play Expo up in Manchester, got to meet one of my heroes, played some fun games, spoke to some lovely people and in general had a really nice time. We asked you last year if there are any more Expo’s that you think GeekOut should try to attend and report on. I have already asked my niece to see if they would want me to take them to one of the many Anime Expo’s scattered around the country but this week whilst browsing one of my regular sites I saw a link that I found sparked my interest.

Gather round ladies and gentlemen as we look at what we’ve got coming up at next months GeekOut Bristol Meet, when we go back to the old school – In fact, so old school, we’re rolling back to geeky media back from the early days of television. From black & white all the way up to the grandfathers of sci-fi films, including Metropolis and Nosferatu, this is going to be a bit of a throwback edition of our meetup, but still with enough modern day facilities to keep it geek!

GeekOut Shrewsbury Meet?

It’s been a long time coming, and fully a year of bold claims that the ever popular GeekOut Bristol Meet would eventually be getting the same in Shrewsbury. So why the hold ups? And what can Shrewsbury expect from a GeekOut Meet anyway? (more…)

We got to the Old Market Tavern after a delicious Italian meal at 2pm. We were dined and now we were hiding from the apocalypse that is the Robot Revolution, standing against all of humanity. Fortunately, we invited some of the brightest geeks across the South-West and beyond to come and help us out with defending Bristol against said robots – They built the robots for us and we were well defended indeed. So what happened at this months meetup? Read on to find out more.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – January 13th: ROBOT REVENGE

GeekOut Cosplay Competition 1302 30

2016 has come to an end now and we’re hopeful for a bright future in 2017. Ah, so let’s look out of the window… Dear God, it’s all gone to hell out there.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – December 31st: HAPPY NEW YEAR Gallery

geekout-bristol-meet-311216-22

A ‘smaller’ GeekOut Bristol Meetup took place on New Years Eve, to celebrate in the new year. Each time the year adds a one to its digits column, you know you need to do something that’s bigger and better than the year before. It’s like an incredible race to be as good as you can be – But we often get waylayed by unforeseen circumstance, or we just get bored of making the best of ourselves. It’s inevitable for us as humans to do this too… But that’s not necessarily a bad thing! So, for one day of the year only, we forget all about everything we know and love… We stop working, we get to a party, or we have a quiet indoors affair, snuggle up as best we can and just enjoy the fireworks: Literally.

What Will I Do In 2017?

House Sold

I found that in the past being super critical of myself has not been very helpful and actually makes me less motivated, so I opt for a New Year wish list instead of New Year resolutions. I promised myself I won’t mention Brexit or the inevitable inauguration of one Donald Trump so don’t expect this to be political and in no particular order.

2017 – Can We Go Outside Yet?

I feel it premature to label 2016 as the worst year ever, because I remain the eternal pessimist. There is always room for 2017 to be worse, there are always more celebrities, more that politicians can do wrong or completely destroy, and we are enduring the short-sightedness of the industrial revolution now more than ever.

But you don’t come here for the doom and gloom, I’ll be starting a new blog for that. My own blog, with politics, and outrage. (more…)
