So if you haven’t caught my ramblings on twitter, I should let you know I’m a pretty major Critter – aka fan of the web show Critical Role. Watching a group of nerdy-ass voice actors play Dungeons & Dragons for many, many hours has introduced me to a many fun things. In particular, I have them to thank for introducing me to both the brilliant force of nature that is Marisha Ray. Together with Geek & Sundry, Ray helped to launch a new web show called Signal Boost. The concept is pretty simple. Each host shares a small number of things out there in the world that deserve a boost. It’s really an opportunity to talk about some things you appreciate that may not get the attention you feel they should. And in turn, you hope that someone else will find a new fixation to enjoy.
I’ve explained enough I think, so let me go ahead and get to the Signal Boosting already! Here are a few things I would like to share with you, some perhaps more established than others.
So I’m a little late to this list – plan was for this to go up at the start of the year but we all know how things go sometimes. 2017 has been a blur so far it seems, but as we step into the second month I felt it appropriate to finally share some of the things I’m most looking forward to in the coming months!
1. Mass Effect: Andromeda (March 21)
This game that I’ve been ready to love since it was first announced long ago is actually a mere two months away now! The long over adieu follow up to Bioware’s original Mass Effect trilogy, Andromeda follows a group looking for a potential new home far from their own galaxy. With every released trailer I’m more and more committed to my next space adventure and I may or may not have already started planning my Ryder internally.
2. Wonder Woman (June 2)
My whole life, before I ever even read a comic book, I’ve always loved Wonder Woman. It was pretty world changing for me, to see that there was a female superhero in the same league (literally) as household names Superman and Batman. Since growing up, my devotion to the Amazon warrior has only grown. While I was originally skeptical of Gal Gadot’s casting in the role, I have since come to trust her with it and so in combination with the directorial power of Patty Jenkins I am holding faith this film will save the DC film franchise.
In between longer entries, I thought I would share some of the fun things I’ve been enjoying recently! A little peak into my daily life as of late.
