Indies to Watch: Flamberge
Most of us here at Geeky Gentlemen are fans of RPG’s, tactics, strategy games, or better yet a combination of each. So when we come across a game with a good balance of everything that also retains its originality, we get pretty excited.
This week on Indies to Watch we’re showcasing Flamberge!
Acquisitions Inc. – Dungeons, Dragons and a Live Studio Audience
It’s April 13th around 2:00pm at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Thousands of attendees of the Penny Arcade Expo: East (a convention better known as PAX East) have been in line for the past two hours or so for an event in the biggest theater the center has to offer. PAX East being a games-themed exhibition, you wouldn’t be faulted if you thought that this must-see event was showcasing a big-budget video game announcement or Q&A session.

Cascading Style – The Tie Bar
For a lot of guys, ties have become synonymous with the work place. That 9 to 5 grind in an uncomfortable office, wearing the same red, blue, or black tie day in and day out. As a result, it’s not uncommon to find guys who just can’t stand to have them on any longer than they need to.
We here at GG are pretty big fans of ties. Although some of us have to wear them to the office, we like to think of this as an opportunity to show off our sense of style. Chances are, you can also find us wearing ties in the off hours, both casually and with a bit of dress, should the situation call for it. It’s a great accessory and one that, if done right, can be a boon to first impressions, second chances, and third dates. To that end, this week’s review is for a company whose name you may have heard in passing but never quite thought to check out: The Tie Bar.
