Video Games Live - Photo by: Brenderous

Time for your weekly update on all things geek in Arizona.

Open your mechanical beaks and consume this buzz, cephalobots:

Wild Wild West Con vows to return and changes its name.

  • For some reason, they’re thinking of calling it The Grand Western Steampunk Festival.
  • It’s more accurate, I guess, but I wish they would replace the word “grand” with a (much) more interesting adjective.
  • (What would you replace it with?)
  • Comes back March 1st through the 4th in 2012 – at Old Tucson Studios again.

The Phoenix Comicon Badge Art Contest ends tonight at Midnight.

You can still win tickets to Video Games Live coming next month.

  • Our friend Jayson of Nerdvana is giving away some sweet passes to his readers.
  • Follow him on Twitter and Facebook for chances to answer some trivia and be entered into a drawing.

I added Empire Games to the Local Nerdery Map.
