What’s Geeky in February 2024?

It’s the season of love, Geeks!

And what do we geeks love more besides sitting down and enjoying some of our favorite geeky stuff? Oh, also our partners. (Oops. Love you, dear.)

But there’s also a ton of stuff to fall in love with this month. From a live-action quest to find the Avatar, master of all four elements, to a new fantasy game from the creators of Life is Strange, to a rerelease of one of the classic fantasy love stories from the Granddaddy of Fantasy, himself. As I said, a lot to get excited about.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?
