Brace yourselves, Christmas is coming! Get the Christmas shopping done sooner rather than later so you can avoid the rush – especially if you need to pick up parcels from online shopping at the post office!
When it comes to Christmas presents, shopping for the geeks in your life can be challenging, especially when you Google the latest gadget and find it’s way, way, out of your price range. Never fear! There’s a ton of quirky and affordable gifts out there for geeks of all creeds.
We’ve rustled up a selection of gift ideas from retailers of all things geeky, nerdy and adorkable such as Think Geek and Popcultcha. Whether you’re shopping for an avid gamer, sci-fi fan or pop culture collector, you’re bound to find something they’ll love – and maybe pick up something for yourself while you’re at it!

Halloween hasn’t really taken off in Australia as much as it has in the northern hemisphere, but that won’t stop costumer-lovers and scare-enthusiasts alike from celebrating! Whether that means dressing up, baking some tasty treats or hosting a movie marathon that’s bound to be a scream; the spooky season is here!
For the geekier among us, October is a great time to check out the latest frightening additions to the Horror genre on game libraries such as Steam. With just a few bright minds working as a team, some of the most interesting (and downright demented!) titles come from indie developers as opposed to the industry giants.
We’ve rustled up a scare-lection of horror games that are bound to get your heart thumping!

Who doesn’t love a good expo? If you’ve never heard of it before, E3 is short for “Electronic Entertainment Expo”. Over the past 23 years, E3 has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the world, with industry titans such as Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo using it as a platform to announce their upcoming games, consoles and peripherals.
If you’ve ever seen a massive queue outside an Apple Store when a new iPhone is released, trust us… that’s nothing compared to the fan base for E3! Last month’s E3 2017 in Los Angeles saw over 68,000 attendees clamouring to get the latest scoop from press conferences and exhibition booths. Of that number, just 15,000 were very lucky members of the public, with the rest being journalists and industry professionals.
While no one from the office was privileged enough to attend (it’s a long way from Adelaide to LA!) we were on the edge of our seats waiting for the announcements to hit the internet via social media and live streams. Let’s take a look at some of the stuff that the office was most excited about.
