Geek News Round Up

Recent Geek News

Every week we read a lot of news covering the geek and otaku community. Here are some of our favorites.

· My Neighbor Totoro is a wonderful movie. It came out in 1988, but recently, people on Twitter seem to be noticing one thing: The goat’s teeth are all wrong.
· Shenzi is a cosplayer from France who specialises in the kind of characters who will put on some space armour (or at least some fictional armour) then go shoot the place up.
· Watch an NES Classic Get Unboxed and Torn Down Because You Can’t Buy One
· Well, This Is Awkward is a twine game about buying condoms. You play as woman tasked with condoms buying before she and her partner have sex, and every step of the way you’re prone to doing something a little bit weird.
· Over 400 U.S. theaters will screen Spirited Away to celebrate the film’s 15th anniversary from December 4th to 5th. After the screenings, the short comedy Ghiblies: Episode 2 will air.
· Godzilla Origami Looks Difficult
· SimCity is so realistic. That’s probably why, in SimCity 4, you can mod in a vestige of our current surveillance state, 33 Thomas Street, New York, NY, which recently was outed as a probable NSA surveillance site.
