Fans of the popular The Walking Dead show are starting their own tribe known as ‘Walker Stalker”.  We here at Watchtower Geeks were able to track down one of the hardest working members of the Walker Stalker Con circuit.   Watchtower Geeks–What drew you to the Walking Dead?

Ingress

Enlightened or Resistance, did you join? Still not sure what to think? I have completed my 30 day Ingress challenge and I have discovered that in less then a week in this game can be addictive. After a few days you look at your surroundings and wonder “is this a portal?”, “I have to walk/drive this way because there is a portal down this way”. Ingress is not like your usual button smasher, strategic or cutesy type game. This is a “get off your butt and dominate” type game. Sure…

Listen up recruit! There is an exotic matter penetrating our world.  You just need to decide if the energy can be used for good or if we will be controlled by it. Enlightened or Resistance! You maybe asking yourself, ” what does this all  mean?”.  It means that a new augmented reality, MMO that has teamed up with Google has taken over our Android phones(soon coming to Ios).  It is a game that requires you to play, not from home, but actually get up and walk to destinations in your…

Geek Survival

  If you have done any looking through The Watchtower you will notice we have a whole section dedicated to survival. Survival?!  YEP survival.  What does survival have to do with The Watchtower’s geeky-ness?  Someday there maybe an apocalypse and someday society will need to rebuild itself and the geeks of the world need to be around.  “Survival of the fittest” is now “survival of the well informed” (look at Bill Gates).  On top of that there are a lot of cool survival tools that even a geek can appreciate.…
