Yesterday we kicked off a Winter-een-mas t-shirt countdown leading up to a giveaway from our Nerd Approved shirt store. However, it’s actually Day 4 of the Winter-een-mas gaming holiday, and today is all about real-time strategy.

I suppose this “Heart Of The Swarm” shirt depicting Chibi renditions of Kerrigan and Jim Raynor of Starcraft also works for Valentine’s Day.

Head on over to our merch store for even more awesomely nerdy shirts.

2063_critical_hit_led_dice_set

ThinkGeek has expanded on their LED Critical Hit D20 to include a D12 and and a D10 in a single set. All three dice will flash red when you roll their highest number:

Each set comes with a d10, d12, and d20, which all flash red when their highest number is rolled. Now, we’ve done everything in our powers to ensure these dice are weighted as evenly as possible considering the electronics inside. We did this because we’re gamers and we really wanted to use them ourselves and cheating sucks.

We offer you a word of warning: the Critical Hit LED Dice Set could be detrimental to your roleplaying existence. Not only will it make everyone want to use your dice, but it also might make you more popular in your gaming group. Also, it’s not always desirable for every type of roll to have the highest number. For those instances, we apologize in advance for your Critical Hit LED Dice Set mocking you by flashing.

Indeed, the last thing I need is to be mocked by dice. Should that happen, I believe some serious dice shaming would be in order.

Dead

The Deadpool movie has languished in limbo for over a decade, but the overwhelmingly positive response from a test footage leak back in July gave Fox the confidence to actually make it happen. It’s a role that Ryan Reynolds was born to play so, naturally, he’s pretty excited about it. So much so that he admitted during an MTV interview that he would have leaked the video himself if he knew this would be the result.

He also noted that Deadpool is turning out to be “the movie we want to make”. Check out the entire interview in the video after the break…

street kombat

Are you familiar with Winter-een-mas? It’s a gamer’s holiday that was started by Tim Buckley in the Ctrl+Alt+Del comic strip and it takes place over the course of seven days between January 25th and 31st. Each day is devoted to a specific genre:

  • January 25th: Adventure games, symbolized by a man dressed as Indiana Jones.
  • January 26th: First Person Shooter (FPS) games, with a 21 year-old sleep deprived gamer as its symbol.
  • January 27th: Fighting games, represented by a martial artist with too many blows to the head
  • January 28th: Real-time Strategy (RTS) games, whose emblem is a large bearded man with a pocket protector inside another pocket protector.
  • January 29th: Racing games, shown as a racer with old-fashioned racing helmet and racing goggles holding a detached steering wheel.
  • January 30th: Role Playing Games (RPGs), depicted as an elf-like woman holding floating dice above her left hand.
  • January 31st: Sports games, with a round, middle-aged man wearing a #10 jersey and holding a beer bottle in each hand as its emblem.

We don’t need much of an excuse to celebrate around here, so for the rest of the week we will feature a Winter-een-mas-themed shirt from our merch store, leading up to a giveaway over the weekend. Since today is the 27th, the shirt is all about fighting games.

You can grab the shirt “Street Kombat” here. Head on over to our merch store for even more awesomely nerdy shirts.

And stay tuned the rest of the week for more Winter-een-mas shirts and our giveaway!

Once again, Hot Toys has produced a figure that is so detailed that it might actually have a soul. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if this 1/6th scale Captain America figure from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron came to life during a thunderstorm. From Hot Toys:

The movie-accurate Captain America Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted helmeted head sculpt, a newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, finely tailored Captain America suit, magnetic metal Captain America shield with retractable handles, and a specially designed figure stand.

Odds are the figure will be available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles in the coming days but, in the meantime, check out more pics after the break…
