If you haven't seen the movie "The Day After Tomorrow", you can get the gist by opening your window. As the Chicago area digs out, geek life goes on, way way waaaay indoors. Next Dimension Games in Chicago is starting its Warhammer 40k Winter League tonight, as well as a one-time tournament at 10AM on Saturday. Games Plus in Mt. Prospect has an HMGS Midwest miniatures gaming event at 6PM tonight, a Monsterpocalypse expansion set event Sunday noon-7, and both Pathfinder and Star Trek CCG gaming events Sunday 10AM-7PM. As usual, Saturday is movie night at Alleycat Comics in Chicago. And, as you can see to the right, we're getting pretty close to Midwinter Gaming Con in Milwaukee, with Uchi-con and Capricon right behind, so check them out now while you have time to plan! On a personal note, with the release of the PS4, I finally found a good deal on the PS3 I never had, and am staying up WAY too late playing Last Of Us. It's so good! What's with this trend of zombie-apocalypse surrogate fathers? It's almost as if big-ticket game publishers are funding story-driven titles. MADNESS!
