Here’s to a Geeky 2014

This geek’s been hibernating.

Since my last post, the geek landscape has gone through some significant changes: we’ve witnessed the launch of not one but two next-gen consoles (and I own neither, tut), Doctor Who regenerating and celebrating his big birthday (not in that order), Buffy’s debut on Twitter (@TheRealSMG if you didn’t already know), and Bilbo swapping Gollum for Smaug in the second ‘Hobbit’ movie.

Because that’s just the tip of the geeky iceberg, I feel like it’s time I got on top of all the latest genre news and pop culture shake-ups by returning to the blog and giving you all the latest in geek.

This week, I’ll be running down the 14 things to be excited about in 2014 from movies, games, books, music & more. However, to see in the New Year, I’m happy to announce my first prize giveaway. Simply head over to my Twitter page (@nicetogeekyou), follow and retweet, and while you’re there feel free to tell me the top geeky thing you’re excited about this year – one lucky winner will be selected at random and win a hardback copy of ‘Batman: The World of the Dark Knight’ from Penguin Books.

Holy cow, Batman!
