Holidays were great

We know. For the holidays everyone has great thoughts, wishes, love and good resolutions. Sadly, it eventually became a bad habit not to achieve our goals that good resolutions became an annoying topic. So annoying that those who had great wishes were discouraged by others that don’t bother as soon as they talk about their great wishes.

Why and from where that habit comes isn’t relevant. We are gamers and our internet site isn’t there to debate about it! Your “geekish.journalist” only wants to wish you, with our ASBL, an happy new year and encourage you with your great resolutions!

If it’s not at the beginning of a year that we may boost one another to achieve our goals then when? Yes, if you understand that otherwise … and so one, clearly. But a new year we can have a new start. We should encourage one another instead of morally downing everyone.

I have great resolutions for this year. Less being upset (grey hairs are sexy but I’m not ready for it), being less lazy, (especially mornings, who invented that concept anyway?) and mostly having as much fun as possible!

Therefore, I guaranty you that our articles will have the best quality possible and that we will try with our ASBL to organize reunions with our community so we may talk gaming, drink gaming, eat gaming and just play together!

It won’t be always easy with the sanitary obligations, it won’t be easy as our committee are fathers, husbands, we have jobs and have a lot to do. Be aware that all we do for the community is done with passion.

While writing new articles we will pay attention to advices, observations and tricks we received. We will never be thankful enough for your generosity and commitment. Now is time for gaming, (marketing) console war, PC Master Race and all other debate about gaming.

I have great expectations for this year, in particular to (finally) purchase a PS5, to test some games. Moreover, I’m impatient for Pokemon Legends, Arceus, Stranger of Paradise, A Final Fantasy Story that will be out soon. I’m impatient to have maximum pleasure with Guardians of the Galaxy, to finally play Final Fantasy VII Remake. Yes, as a huge fan I still didn’t play it and it begins to itch everywhere!

I have hope for some novelties, even for console accessories, who knows? And to get news about the next Final Fantasy (XVI), the next E3 and how we will live the event and other news that could be more surprising than others.

Tell us what you are awaiting for this year, whether it is for your live in general or for gaming! Comment on Facebook or on our site!

Until then, good game to all and a happy coming year!

Galactic style for controllers and covers

Sony and Playstation seem to like space. The galaxy and the colors inspired by it. This is saying something if we look at the recent news.

And yes Playstation has finally understood or taken the time to make different shells for its latest console. So it was a false debate.

It was clear that it was only a matter of time before this happened, but we can still be happy that it is finally done and the choice of "theme" and especially color is quite good. For my part I actually find that it is well done. We will also start with the hulls, because that is what was probably the most anticipated. For the controllers, we knew that was happening just like for every console that comes out. So let's start with the (a little) less obvious:

coques ps5 3

For my part, I will see a blue hull, while keeping a white hull. To the great despair for my wife, but who can boast of being able to have a PS5 in the colors of her favorite club with official parts of the brand. As a fan of Olympique de Marseille, this blue with the basic white, it will make a perfect effect to remind my club of heart. Enough about me and my follies, I would first have to have the console before thinking of growing my wife's white hair.

The purple chosen for the hull is also very interesting to me. It is a color that we are not used to but which has its effect. It can very well fit into the decor of an already well-established gamer as for a gamer who is still looking for himself. Undoubtedly the color that could have the most success with black. I think black is an absolute must, a timeless one that will surely often be the first choice.

Why not a little madness? Red and pink, these colors would be a little more unexpected choices but in view of the result, quite logical choices! Bravo to the designers who have decided to go for a very special theme but which should delight everyone.

It is certain that the one who does not yet know what color he wants, it is not here that we will guide him. My indecision about the colors is total. Of course if a mix of colors can remind you of a game, sports team or whatever, then why not make that choice? Otherwise you really have to pay attention to what catches your eye the most. For my part, purple attracts me a lot. Being quite atypical, your console can really stand out from your decor. On the other hand, let it be clear, if you want discretion ... you will have to come back later. Apart from the black shell, nothing will be able to match your desire.


Now let's move on to the controllers.

We have the white, basic. Black and red have made their appearance quite recently and now galaxy fashion completes the choices with three other colors.

manettes ps5 2

Once again it's the purple for me that stands out. They are really beautiful. Its color attracts the eye without attacking it, while this cannot necessarily be said of other colors. Of course, I will present the controllers to you individually here so that you can have a better view of each of the controllers. I like the fact that they kept a part in black. I still think they could have been limited to the L1, L2, R1 and R2 buttons as well as the joysticks. The shell itself could have been one color and that could also have had a nice effect. Or have the PS button the same color as the controller to make the color stand out a little more. It is of course a detail and nothing says that my reflections are more correct than the choices made by Playstation.

So that you can get an idea for yourself, here are the controllers individually:

 manettes ps5 bleu


manettes ps5 mauve


manettes ps5 rose


I hope you will like these photos and help you in a possible choice. Otherwise, well I can't help you anymore I'm sorry.

What I like most about all the controllers is the transparency of the buttons which looks really good with the colors. So you will tell me that it is all well and good, but how much, when and where?

So I will naturally answer all of this for you.

The three new colors will be available on January 14 to order on the site, the official sale date of these controllers will be February 11.

And yes it is not very long and who knows, gift for your valentine.

For the hulls it's a little different. The colors black and red will be available from January 2022 in these countries: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea and the Philippines, at all participating resellers.

For the other colors, it will be current in the first quarter without further details. What remains close all the same. The wait will therefore not be very long. On the other hand, no price was given. For the controllers, we think that the prices will not change in principle. Regarding the hulls or "facades" as noted by the manufacturer, no press release price.
Good news and above all a lot of possibilities for the future.

A good game to all.

Our lions are back and they want more!

Our lions are back and they want more!

eSports LoL

Our lions are back, and they want more!

After our well-earned victory during the Post league in 2020, some of our teammates decided to strive another way. However, after some months of recruitment, we finally established a new team.

Our new roster looks as follows:

  • KeNNetic (Top Lane)
  • Mistkäfer (Jungle)
  • Tim Shady (Mid)
  • KoreanCarryJK (ADC)
  • Yatoon (Support)

While KeNNetic (Ken Theis), Tim Shady (Tim Theis) and Yatoon (Yan Theis) are names that should sound familiar, some of them are now positioned on new lanes for this year’s season of the Post Esports Masters. KeNNetic, as the only one who does not go through any change this season, remains on the top lane. Following we have the MVP of the previous year Tim Shady switching his position up and leading the team now as our new midlaner. The last of our already known members is Yatoon, who is now no longer a substitute player, but plays the game in the main roster, as the team’s support.
Nevertheless, we don’t want to forget about our members who joined the team for this new season. We are happy to welcome Mistkäfer (Mika Schaeffer) who joins the team, stepping into the footprints of Tim Shady, as the new jungler, accompanied by KoreanCarryJK (Daniel Duhr), who joins our team as the new ADC, joining Yatoon on the bot lane.

We are also happy to announce that all the stated players are now under contract with us and we hope to be able to defend our title!

If you want to see a presentation of the all the players, stay tuned for that during the eastern school holiday weeks, which is the week from the 5th to the 8th of April.

What we can say about our team at this moment in time is that they are all engaged in their training, preparing themselves for the upcoming matches. We don’t want to name anyone by name here, but what we can mention is that our team’s training involves matches with other competing teams, so that we can make sure that our team will be prepared for everything.

Additionally, we want to announce that our team did not only change members, but also changed its name. In future our team will be known as the ‘Red Lions’, keeping their connection to the BOTRL, but making it sound less attached overall, as they form their own part in our community.

We are all eager to see where our new team will lead us.

That said, one thing is for sure, our new lions are hungrier than ever!
