Starting the year with a blast! Got my hands on the latest Marvel Legends figures by Hasbro and man, I love this wave. Before I forget, I want to give a very big shout out to Basti Golez and Kramer Toy Warden for securing me a set
Marvel Legends, as some of you may have noticed, is on a roll and we got like 22 figures coming up, 9 of which are already released -- and I'm here to share to... Read more

Toy reviews come a dime a dozen, but there are only a few really worth watching. Unfortunately, I wouldn't call mine any good, but there are a few Filipino toy reviewers that I really look up to. You've got guys like Dennis "Slangards" Domingo and Dominic "Advocate Pinoy" Dimagmaliw. And today, I think I'll add a new guy to that list of awesome Pinoy toy reviewers.
Today, I watched Japoskee's review of Stealth Tech Donatello. It is literally one of the... Read more

The one thing I've always frustrated me with the PS3 was the inability to record gameplay or even take screenshots. If you wanted to capture any screenie or footage, you'd have to hook your PS3 up to a capture card, which doesn't capture in HD, if I'm not mistaken. I recall it was due to their harsh anti-piracy tactics. I guess Sony peeps were afraid people would just capture HD video off Blu-rays being played.
It was something people did not... Read more

What I love about the current direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they're slowly taking relatively unknown superheroes (at least, unknown to non-comic book readers) and making them household names. And they're doing it the right way - by treating their characters right. The reason why people fall in love with these characters in the first place is because of who they've been built up to be over the years in thousands of pages of comic books. Marvel... Read more

Last year I wrote out every single movie I wanted to see this year at GeekOut.ph. Despite my best efforts, I've only been able to see some of the films I posted about on that article. Some were moved to later release dates (Jupiter Ascending and Tomorrowland), others were put on the back burner after some pretty awful reviews (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transcendence), but I was able to see a good number of them in the theater, which is...

One of the biggest stories surrounding the upcoming 'Man Of Steel' sequel, 'Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice,' is that Wonder Woman is joining the story. Naturally this idea has been celebrated as the first appearance of a full-fledged female superhero in modern film, as well as a general expansion of DC's cast of characters on the big screen. For those reasons, many will probably love Wonder Woman no matter how she's depicted by director Zack Snyder and his crew... Read more

Another year has passed, and while GeekOut.ph isn't as active as it once was, we're glad we're still around.
Have yourself a merry, geeky Christmas, everyone!

Here we are again, the zombie apocalypse. At this point of the trend’s life cycle, a game has to have a gargantuan amount of innovation and entertainment to reel me in and keep me hooked. Dead of Winter does just that. It gets the zombie apocalypse theme and runs with it beyond the finish line and goes where no similarly-themed game, or any other game for that matter, has gone before. It is exploding with theme, and narrative. YES. NARRATIVE... Read more

If we're going to talk about people who shaped the future, names like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs get thrown around. But to gamers all over the world, there is but one to whom we owe much - Ralph Baer, the father of video games.
And today, we say goodbye to him. Ralph Baer has passed on.
Ralph Baer lived a very interesting life. He was born in 1922. He fled Nazi-controlled Germany, and moved to America, right before the attacks on... Read more

Ah Christmas... a favorite time of the year for most of us here at GeekOut. It's a time for giving and receiving, when commercialism reigns supreme. And as we do every year, we like to put a simple list together to help our fellow geeks because we all know how hard it is to give someone who has a lot of hobbies a gift that they would actually appreciate. Let's kick it off with's Bim's list.

Hey there, guys! Here we go with another Marvel action figure review but today, it's not a Marvel Legends or Select figure -- today, I'll share to you the big three of the Avengers: Iron Man, Thor and Captain America by Figma. Basically, what Figma made were inspired by the characters' appearance during the Avengers movie.
Now, the never-ending argument and comparison to Marvel Legends is back and yes, I made a quick size chart for you guys!
Sadly, I wasn't that... Read more

Ever see something cool on ThinkGeek and go "Ooh, I want one!" only to realize that you would need a credit card, you'd pay shipping fees, and you'd probably end up having to pay tax so you end up not buying anything at all. A lot of the stuff I would love to own I found on ThinkGeek.com, but due to the restrictions, I would only be able to get my fill of geeky stuff if it was locally available... Read more

Growing up, I wanted to be a lot of things. One of the things that I pursued somewhat actively is animation. I even have a demo reel. Of course, with my general lack of artistic talent, it was never something that would pan out. But it's still something that interests me greatly. So I'm glad the Philippines is still a potential destination for animation studios looking for some fresh talent. We, as Filipinos, have long been known to be great... Read more

Return to Komikon!
It's been a couple of years since I was able to visit Komikon at the Bayanihan Center in Pasig City, but last Saturday I was able to stop by after it opened and catch up on the local comics scene. I gave a bunch of my copies of favorites titles away recently so I needed to get some replacements as well. Word to the wise for next year, it opens at 10am, but unless you're trying to... Read more

The last time I’ve seen a Doctor Who finale this satisfying was with The Big Bang from way back in 2010. Death In Heaven is a fantastic, if subdued, finale that neatly ties almost all of the ideas that were introduced with Peter Capaldi’s first outing as the Doctor. Sit back, and I’ll talk about Death In Heaven and the first eleven episodes that led us here.
Warning: spoilers after this point.
One of my biggest complaints with Matt Smith’s tenure as the time travelling alien in Doctor Who was that... Read more

Remember when I first reviewed the whole Return of Marvel Legends Series 1? That feeling where everyone's a good catch (well, sort of)? This wave delivers the same feeling -- oh, wait, BETTER than that.
We'll be getting:
Maidens of Might
Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel
Scarlet Witch (Oh, yes -- FINALLY!)
Marvel's Iron Fist
Marvel NOW Thor
Alright, if Hasbro can just stick to this kind of wave every time with every theme that they'll come up with, that would be great because I'm pretty... Read more

Mazes & Mutants is one of the best episodes of the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series. In it, the four turtles decide to play the eponymous game and eventually to cosplay their chosen characters, turning it into a Live Action Role Play or LARP.
Things get hairy when another young mutant, Sir Malachi, decides to turn the role play part into reality with his hallucinatory powers. They have to defeat the dragon, save the girl, and win the day.

Despite all the awful reviews for Christopher Nolan's new film, Interstellar, I decided to give it a shot and watch it in IMAX. I felt that a movie about space travel really deserved to be seen on the really big screen.
While I'd have to agree that Nolan's film has it's problems, I was genuinely interested in what was happening on screen. The action scenes were very well done, the images very engrossing, and the science not completely Hollywood. Clocking in... Read more
