Avengers: Infinity War Packs a Gauntlet-Covered Punch

Posted  April 24, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Our policy at Nerd Caliber to never post spoilers in reviews is strained to its limits with Avengers: Infinity War. Even discussing in broad strokes what small problems the movie suffers from would possibly give away enough clues for sharp fans to take away some information about the plot and story of the film. So […]

PAX East 2018 Sunday Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter, Part 1

Posted  April 21, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Sunday at PAX East 2018 was more crowded on the show floor itself than any Sunday I’ve ever seen. But the overall crowds were smaller than Saturday or Friday as is the case with most cons. I still took enough photos of cosplayers for two galleries for the day. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Petry […]

Jake Young is AFRAID OF THE DARK!

Posted  December 6, 2011  by  E. Ortiz

In 1992, the Nickelodeon network unveiled a show. This show was so different, so unheard of, so revolutionary that it left a permanent impression on an entire generation of Canadian and American youngsters. That show was “Are You Afraid of The Dark” and its goal was to make 10-year olds poop their pants. Now, many […]

Super Megafest 2011: Small Convention. Big Opportunities. A Con-parison

Posted  December 4, 2011  by  Jen Jen

With all due respect to larger conventions, the smaller sized (both in venue and occupancy) Super Megafest had a charm all its own which doubled as a great weekend for newcomers and seasoned con-goers alike. Held at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham, MA Saturday and Sunday Nov. 19 & 18, SMF was a refreshing switch […]

The 5 Creepers You’ll Meet At A Con

Posted  December 2, 2011  by  Jake Young

Pre-preface: This is meant to be a joke. It is wrong to judge people outright for a few minor annoying behaviors. Love! AND! Peace! Preface: In my experience, conventions are a wonderful place where the often marginalized are free to be themselves, to engage with the things that interest them the most, and make friends […]

The Photography of Kiera Vallone: Gobble-con 2011

Posted  December 2, 2011  by  Kiera Vallone

Gobble-Con 2011 was a nice, low-key event. The staff and volunteers were very friendly, and there was a variety of panels to attend. Since its a small, hotel con – its a great choice for someone’s first convention. Gobble-Con has a lot of potential, and I’m looking forward to it coming back bigger and better […]

Star Wars Jedi: The Dark Side with Scott Allie

Posted  December 1, 2011  by  E. Ortiz

Anyone who knows me understands that I’m no longer a fan of the Star Wars Universe. I was greatly disappointed with the prequels, and after hearing Darth Vader’s legendary scream in Episode III, I gave up on anything touched by Lucas. Despite my disappointment, I jumped at the opportunity to interview Scott Allie, writer and […]

Review of EXP CON IV

Posted  November 27, 2011  by  Kenneth Davis

I’ve debated whether EXP or AWA would make my favorite con of the year. Not so much in terms of what a con has to offer, but personal enjoyment alone. Having grown tiresome of AWA, my expectations were pretty high. Sure EXP does not have as much to offer in comparison to AWA or Metro, […]
