Movies/Shows

3.  Marvel Releases “Previously on X-Men”

Some may argue that this doesn’t belong in the Movies/TV section since this article is, technically, about a book. But the book is about one of the TV shows most beloved by nerds to this day, so I’m counting it. Get the full story on the making of this 90’s animated classic with this cool sounding book.

4. Scifi Movies to Look Forward to in 2018

Many of these movies sound amazing, although I’m most curious about the “A Wrinkle in Time” film and how it will turn out. I’m theoretically excited for the next Jurrasic Park installment too, although I wasn’t totally satisfied with “Jurrasic World” so I’m not holding my breath.

Video Games

5.  Den of Geek’s Review of “Super Mario Odyssey”

I haven’t played a Mario game in a long time, but I have to say this does sound like fun.

6. PC Mag’s Picks for the Best PC Games of 2017

Okay, a couple of these I don’t think actually came out in 2017, but still, its a good list if you’re looking for something to play.

Artwork

7. “Frostmourne Cavern” by Kanaru92

A wonderfully eery rendering of the cavern where Frostmourne rested before Prince Arthas set his hand to the hilt and sealed the fate of a world.

8. “Demon Hunter Illidan Stormrage” by SiaKim

I like this particular rendering of Illidan because it shows his more contemplative side. The general leading an army as opposed to the ferocious warrior we generally see in artistic renderings.
