Our Story

Everyone has something that they like to do in their spare time. These activities can range from watching movies, television, reading books, playing video games, or sitting with friends and playing an old fashioned role playing game. After all, everyone has a little bit of geek in them, and this is something that everyone knows deep down and should feel free to let out whenever they can. But where can people turn when they are looking to get the latest information, tips, tricks, and rumors about what they like to geek out on.

Frankly, that’s why I felt the need to start iGeekOut.Net. I’m Lee Wyatt, a self-proclaimed geek, and you can see me as I come out of the TARDIS below. I have long been a fan of most things that people consider geeky in some way shape or form. In many ways, you can consider me a “Jack-of-All Trades” when it comes to the Geek World, and the Fandoms associated with it.

My goal is to is to create a site that is “all-encompassing” in nature, and provides knowledge for the latest and greatest in the world of the geek. We are all aware of that the vast majority of information floating out there regarding movies, games, books, television, comics, and more are often nothing more than rumors at best, and wild speculation at worst.

  • Fun 100%
  • Informative 76%
  • Thought Provoking 82%
  • All Inclusive 99%

We are a site about geeks, for geeks, by geeks! Come celebrate your inner nerd by joining forces with your fellow geeks, dweebs, and dorks!

Additionally, it seems like almost all the “reviews” that are being put out there are all the same, and frankly I have almost always found myself disagreeing with the reviews of the “professional” critic. I am launching iGeekOut.Net with the user geek in mind, and these are the people who will be posting the reviews, recommendations, and articles that are found on this site. Each bit of information that is posted on this website will be written by geeks, for geeks, with the intent of being as helpful, accurate, and timely as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about iGeekOut.Net. If you like what you see or (especially) if you have any concerns about what you see, please let us know. I’d love to hear from you!

I have been an avid gamer for the past 15 years, I like just about any type of game ranging from first person shooter to turn based strategy even with some racing mixed in. My favorite genre would probably have to be first person RPG style games. If you would like to see some of my more recent gameplay you can check out my YouTube channel Bait0000.

Ben is a writer, gamer, a reader, resident Viking and Wizard. Well, maybe not the last part, but he certainly wishes he was. He is an avid comic reader and has been referred to (on more than one occasion) as a walking Marvel Wiki. In addition to comics, games are also a passion of his. He specializes in, and prefers, JRPGs, RPGs, and Strategy games especially those that deal with fantasy and Oriental settings. In the realm of reading, Ben is a HUGE fan of all things fantasy and likes to pepper in the occasional historical, mythological, and science fiction texts. Currently he is writing, writing, writing, and writing some more so expect many an article, and check out his blog, A Bear with a Pen.

I am an experienced writer and gamer that loves looking into the deep lore of the games I play. I am currently spending most of my time on the Action RPGs, MMORPGs, Real Time Strategy, and MOBAs genres. No game is truly a masterpiece without having a great story, and I always look for and analyze these stories in detail to find the motives, relations, and pasts that can drive such epic games as well as give my reviews on their core gameplay mechanics and bang for their buck. You can add me on Battle.net (#Yonkey1690) or on Steam (FusRoDahleyLama).

I have a love for JRPGs, MMORPGS, Action RPGs, table top games, and TCGs. I have worked in a card and comic book store for 10 years, and played in many TCG tournaments (including 3 Nationals). I always want to know the why of a story and the interpersonal motivves that drives the characters to do what they do. I love seeing how I can apply a specific situation from a game or comic in real life.

Jonathan is first and foremost a videogame nerd.  Nintendo games both classic and modern are his obsession, and he has a particular soft spot for classic Playstation games.  He is currently learning to program, aiming to one day design his own games.  Aside from videogames, Jonathan is a fan of DC comics, H.P. Lovecraft, heavy metal and big dumb movies.  He’s the lead singer of a local heavy metal band, and he writes a variety of things on a variety of occasions.  He also has a gaming blog that he hasn’t updated in three years.

I tap my fingers on stuff a lot and believe in being nice to people. My expedition is sponsored by the People’s African Union and I think that we should live in harmony with the aliens. I was stationed at the Triskelion at the time of the uprising, I blindly follow Saradomin, and I think that bug Pokémon are underrated.

I’m a coder and technology professional who happens to love science fiction television. Anything from space operas to clones to space operas with clones is in my wheelhouse. I enjoy talking and theorizing with likeminded people. I’m also somewhat of a gamer starting with the Atari 2000, moving on through the Nintendo years and well into the Xbox/PlayStation era. Now-a-days I just play Wii U with my kids. I’m also known to play Minecraft PE on occasion.

I’m an aspiring artist who just so happens to write as a hobby. While I like to draw and write about  Friendship in Magic, Doctor Who, Pokémon, Supernatural, and Undertale, my absolute favire subject matter is My Little Pony. I do accept commission, which typically cost between $5 and $20 per picture. You can follow me on DeviantArt or on Instagram, and your best bet for reaching me is through my Instagram account!

I’m just a guy who loves all things geek, nerd, and dork. Whether it’s exploring video game lore, discussing both card game and fighting game strategy, or watching Firefly for the millionth time, I enjoy celebrating the awkwardness. While I may focus on Sm4sh competitively, I love watching each others game just as much as I do playing. All in all, that weird guy in the back of the party emphatically talking about a show or video game, is probably me. Well, except at least he went to the party. Be sure to watch my YouTube Channel!

A lot of people will be quick to accuse Jessica of having too many costumes. Cosplaying since 2001, and LARPing since 2008 has given her plenty of opportunity to grow her collection. Her response is typically as follows: “Just because I have a separate costume closet, and five large plastic storage containers, which may be overflowing, plus everything scattered across the craft room, and drawers, and part of my real-clothes closet…doesn’t mean there are too many!” She loves to debate about the international LARP scene, especially the Nordic style’s influence in US boffer games. Additionally, she loves science, comics, movies, RPGs of all sorts, and even the occasional video game (if it has a deep enough plot). You can find more information about Jessica by visiting her on FacebookTumblr, or by going to Utah LARP.

I am a true fan of Naruto (as if you couldn’t guess), Supernatural, Arrow, Flash, Pretty Little Liars, and so many other shows that I can’t list them all here. While I love to play horror survival games (Resident Evil 4 is my favorite), I absolutely love to watch horror movies. One of my favorite hobbies is to take pictures of anything and everything that I find fascinating. I am currently dabbling in writing some fanfiction stories, which you can find under my Fanfiction Pen Name: TroublesomeFox21.
