7 Ways To Improve The Walking Dead Again

Facebook and Twitter was awash with a mixed bag of positive and negative reviews for The Walking Dead finale after it aired. Personally, my opinion sat firmly in the middle. I loved the tension, but the final pay-off sort of frustrated me. It got me thinking about how The Walking Dead feels a little sedated as of late, and there are several aspects where I think it could rise to top form again if they enforced them. 

Check out my suggestions below.

Kay's Fable Favourites!

I was gutted when Lionhead Studios announced that it was closing its doors last month (thanks, Microsoft). Whilst it had it's up's and down's, the Fable series remains a firm favourite for me. Fable II was the first game I picked up on the Xbox 360, and from then on, I was hooked. 

So in honour of the dissolved company, end of development on Fable Legends and the potential end of the series in general, I thought I would share with you all some of my Fable 'favourites'.

Mafia III Release Date and New Trailer

If you've been waiting for the next crime open-world game to come out, then look no further Mafia 3. It finally has a release date and a new trailer. I wasn't too hyped about this game at first, even though I liked the two previous games, but the trailer promised an interesting, deep story. I hope it is as good as the trailer makes it out to be. Mafia III will be released on the 7th October.

What Were the Geek Mash Crew Playing/Watching? #2

What were the Geek Mash crew watching and playing last week? Take a look below!


Last week, I watched Fear of the Walking Dead Season 1. I finished it quite quickly as it's only 6 episodes long. I really enjoyed the series more than I did with the newest season of The Walking Dead. It felt like they put back in the fear, whilst zombies actually felt like they were more than just a slight threat again. 

I've also been watching Doctor Who. I'm about half way through so far. It's a bit hit and miss so far. I just found all the previous seasons much better. I'll keep going, but so far I'm not too excited for the next season.

Game wise, I played some of the Doom beta. It's good but just not for me these days. I like a bit of tactics to my shooters.

I got a little further into Quantum Break this week. I'm still really enjoying the story. It's really interesting and fun gameplay.

The main game I played this week is Dark Souls 3 and I'm loving it. It's great graphics, awesome level design and enemies, fun gameplay and still as hard as hell. It's all I ask for in the series. 


Last week, I finished watching Fear The Walking Dead with Casey. It felt like what The Walking Dead needs to return to; tension and the fear factor. The zombies actually feel like more of a problem here than they do for the crew in the latest The Walking Dead season. 

I didn't really play much last week, apart from Miitomo (as usual), a bit of Guitar Hero Live and Left 4 Dead 2. Left 4 Dead 2 has aged well. It's still a lot of fun!

I've been watching a lot of Twitch last week. Channels such as eviltedsmith, staceyofgotham and cosplay craft streams. I haven't played too much...I lost my controller, which doesn't help!

Deadpool 2 Official

The highly successful Marvel movie is officially getting a sequel! Tim Miller is returning to direct, and of course Ryan Reynolds will be playing Deadpool again. Also, the iconic partner of Deadpool (Cable) is said to be in the sequel.

Pokemon Live-Action Movie Maybe in the Works

The Pokemon company apparently is in talks to do a full live-action movie. A Hollywood source has said that there has been a secret auction for filming companies to get the rights to make the movie. The rumour is that Warner Bros is the early favourite to get the rights.

Rumoured Red Dead Redemption 2 Map

Earlier this week, someone claimed on NeoGAF they had the map for Red Dead Redemption 2. A few days later, sources claim that the leak is legit from people working really close with the project. The game will also be set before the events of the original game. 

First 12 Minutes of Mirror's Edge Catalyst

If you was like me when Mirror's Edge originally came out, you couldn't stop playing it as it was unique and very fun to play. The sequel looks set to be a worthy successor to the original source, being less gun focused and more about the parkour. Enjoy the first 12 minutes below:

Strange and Mysterious Places - London

One of the things that people know about me (outside of my inability to stick to deadlines and make wildly unsubstantiated claims while drunk) is I love to travel, be it some of the glorious European cities to the jungles of south America and every place I go to inspires the adventures I design, so I figured I would write a series of pieces on adventure concepts inspired by the places I have traveled to. 

I will give a fantasy, science fiction and a horror scenario based on the same place, remember these are not complete adventures just the base concepts to get your minds working towards creating your own story. 


I love London, the city has so much atmosphere and flavour to it the combination of Gothic architecture with tight cobblestoned streets and glass buildings with open spaces can give the city very distinctive atmospheres depending on the time of day and where you are, combined with legends like jack the ripper and stories like Dracula,the golden compass and Neverwhere London is the perfect place to run an adventure no matter the genre of the game you are running.

Firefly Cargo Crate

Firefly Cargo Crate Unboxing

By Rossteffer

For a long time now I have been a subscriber to many different subscription boxes. I have tried services like Nerd Block and Loot Crate, often switching between different themes Sci Fi Block, Comic Block and Arcade Block. Once I saw that Loot Crate were offering a Firefly Crate I was all in! Firefly to this day is one of my favourite shows, a Science Fiction / Western hybrid that to many fans dismay was cancelled too soon.

Each Cargo Crate is themed around a certain character, so let's watch the video together to find out which character got the first crate.

Not Long Until MCM London Comic Con!

It's nearly that time of the year again when fellow Geeks come together en masse to go to the London MCM Expo on the 27-29th of May.

Last year the three day show saw 130,560 pass through the doors of Excel London, eclipsing the record-breaking 122,600 attendees at May's MCM London Comic Con and the 110,200 at last October’s event.

Essentially this cements MCM London Comic Con’s position as the third largest Comic Con on the planet — just behind illustrious US rivals in New York and San Diego.

Tickets are running out fast so if you want to go to this May's event, go HERE to buy a ticket

But why go? Because it's AWESOME!

My Top 14 Tsum Tsums

The Geek Mash crew can vouch for this one...I love Tsum Tsum's. But, what are they exactly? Well, if you've ever walked into a Clintons or Disney store lately, then there's a chance that you have most likely seen them. 

Tsum Tsums are Japanese plush teddies that come in three sizes. A cute alternative to the standard screen-wipes for devices, Tsum Tsums are designed to stack on top of one another. Priced from £3.00 upwards, Disney release two collections a month from their broad range of classic films.

Here's a collection from March, based on Tangled:

Geek Mash on Miitomo!

Miitomo was released in the UK yesterday for iOS and Android. It marks Nintendo's first venture into the mobile market, offering their own unique spin on social networking. 

Some of the Geek Mash team have fully embraced this already, and we're loving it. Essentially a lighter version of the bizarre but addictive Tomodachi Life, Miitomo allows for social interaction between friends in a brand new, refreshing way.
