From the hottest games coming out this holiday, to the summer movie season to end them all, this is the best time to be a fan of everything pop culture.
We know it can be hard to keep track of the all the latest geeky news you care about. That’s why we took one for the team and found the Top 8 Blogs Every Well Rounded Geek Needs to Follow! Between movie and tech news, comic releases and game reviews, a comprehensive list of sites that post all the stuff you love.
Why should you follow?: Are you debating which side Spider-Man will be on in Captain America: Civil War? Dying to know when the next Justice League comic comes out? Comicbook.com is your spot for the latest comic industry news about the movies, TV and video games we care about.
Why should you follow?: Do you wish your game reviews were as honest as Abraham Lincoln with the snarky bite of a bottle of vinegar? Zero Punctuation (narrated by Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw) of Escapist Magazine is the perfect place to watch brutally honest reviews of the latest video games. Croshaw holds nothing back as he takes every small issue and animates his grievances to make hilarious videos. Check it out below:
Why should you follow?: Have you been asking for a self-drying jacket for Christmas ever since BF2? (It exists!) Dying to know how to test a plutonium powered spacecraft? (Carefully, duh!) This is your blog to follow for the latest gadgets and technology news that every science geek needs to know about!
Why should you follow?: Looking for an in-depth review of a specific episode of Batman: The Animated Series or the X-Files? Been looking for a complete breakdown of the 17 times horrible hairpieces that ruined TV and movies? (Jessica Alba’s wig in Fantastic Four should dive into a dumpster fire). While the AV Club is published by The Onion, you will only find extensively detailed reviews and articles on the latest TV shows, movies, music and books with a sarcastic twist!
Why should you follow?: Dude, we don’t want this AT-AT Cable organizer. We need it! This is the website to uncover all the coolest gear you can’t live without once you’ve discovered it! It’s winter in Chicago, but we’re selling our RIPT van for this $15,000 Ural Darth Vader Bike. Who needs warmth when you’re riding in Sith style?
Why should you follow?: We love a blog about geek culture, but most of them are from the perspective of dudes nerding out to other dudes. The Mary Sue is a collection of lady writers nerding out to an audience of men and women with intriguing articles from fresh angles. The Mary Sue posts daily about the pop culture news you should know about such as thorough articles addressing racial and sexual inequity in Jessica Jones.
Why should you follow?: Have a deep desire to compare the PS2 and PS3 versions of Kingdom Hearts? Or how about an article of a woman that hacked The Legend of Zelda so Zelda saves Link? Kotaku provides content and opinions for the serious minded gamer like in depth reviews on Battlefront to Grand Theft Auto Mario Kart Mods. We love that Kotaku asks readers for news tips so they always have the latest gaming scoop!
Why should you follow?: Chris Hardwick’s (Talking Dead, Web Soup Host) brainchild transformed from a simple podcast to a Nerdist network of blogs and hilarious videos. The Nerdist only employs elite bloggers to bring you the content you care about like an article on if Green Arrow could beat Batman (super nah) or a hilarious video on if Fallout sized bugs could actually exist.
