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!

striker eureka statue

We’ve teamed up with Sideshow Collectibles to offer Nerd Approved readers the chance to win this ridiculously awesome Pacific Rim Striker Eureka statue. Just look at this friggin’ thing.

From the product page:

Striker Eureka, the strongest and fastest mech on the planet, is the world’s only MARK V Jaeger. Piloted by father and son team Herc and Chuck Hansen, the Skyscraping Soldier is equipped with deadly Sting-Blades capable of cutting through bone and buildings with ease. Australia’s pride and joy is constructed of expertly crafted armor and finished with a detailed paint deco. Developed in partnership with award-winning filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, the Sideshow Collectibles Striker Eureka statue brings this brutal brawler from the big screen to your collection.

The figure stands 19″ tall, weighs 34 pounds and is a limited edition of only 1000 (shipping slated for March-April 2015). It also retails for $399.99—but you can get it for free. All you need to do is head on over to our Sideshow Contest page and follow the instructions.
