While there have been a number of game-specific Nintendo Directs since E3 2014, there hasn’t been a company-wide one with a greeting from Satoru Iwata in some time. Today that all changed, with the company showing off a number of upcoming titles for their Wii U and 3DS consoles. Watch the full Direct right here and read on for a full recap.

Our buddies over at Geeks OUT have just launched a massive Kickstarter campaign to create Flame Con, New York City’s first LGBTQ comic convention! But it’s not just comics, because their release describes the event as “a one-day comics, arts, and entertainment expo showcasing dozens of creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom, including comics, videogames, film, and television.”

Since 2010, Geeks OUT has been hosting events for the LGBTQ geek community and establishing queer-positive spaces for fans at comic conventions. (I volunteer at their New York Comic Con booth every year!) But for 2015, they want to invite everyone to Flame Con!

For the grand finale of my New York Comic Con 2014 cosplay photos (I told you there were a lot!), I’ve saved the videogame ones. Here you’ll find a super cute Fox McCloud, a pair of super gay Ice Climbers, a fabulous Yuna, a slightly creepy Wii Fit Trainer, and the most adorable PaRappa!

Oh, and you might also spot me in there, too, as I dressed up for Saturday when I worked the booth for Geeks OUT! ;-)

Now that pat 6.0 has finally hit, the new expansion for World of Warcraft, Warlord of Draenor, is right around the corner. The game has gone through some massive changes already with the pre-paching of 6.0. Including the Toy Box, reagents tab, new character models, a pre-patch event, and a giant stat squish.

The new character models for the Dwarf, Draenei, Gnome, Human, Night Elf, Orc, Tauren, Troll, and Undead have been really needed for a long time now. In comparison to some of the newer playable races like Worgen or Goblin, they just seemed outdated but now the new character models are right up to par.

The toy box and reagents tab are something that have been a long time coming. The reagents tabs, which can get bought for 100g from a baker, now has a ton of room to store all the crafting mats you have. It also comes along with the convenient button that moves all of your reagents from your bags and bank into it. With materials now stacking up to 200, storage of materials has become much less of an issues. Also freeing up space in our bags is the toy box located in the collection tabs next to mounts and pets, where you can now store “toys’ which is a new label many in-game usable items have been tagged as. All you need to do is click on them in your bag and they move into the toy box, making them available for all of your characters.

Dear Diary,

Well, it was slightly easygoing this week, since we’re leading up to Halloween. I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not going to bother with the big hoo-ha with Jack and everyone dressing up and stealing candy. I’m just not in the mood…

But I have decided on a costume! Though you’ll have to wait until next week to see what it is. Read on for this week’s fun!

As a fan of Animal Crossing, I was naturally delighted when Nintendo invited me to participate in the early access program for the upcoming 3DS RPG Fantasy Life, as the game has been compared to AC. However, aside from being able to talk to animals, fish, catch bugs, dress up, and buy and decorate homes, they’re totally different. Let me explain…

Dear Diary,

After all the drama last week, I was grateful to have a little quiet in Geneva this time around. Although I’m constantly reminded that Halloween is coming up and I’m not prepared for it at all. I never decorated my house, and I haven’t bought any of the masks yet to participate in the holiday. Although I’m not sure I really want to bother. Maybe I should check and see if there’s any spooky furniture that I still need that I didn’t get last year. See if I should try again this year. Of course, as I said, I haven’t decorated yet, so maybe it’s not worth it? We’ll see…
