    I thought i'd start up this little thread for nerdy/geeky indulgencies I'm sure we all treat ourself to now and again. I buy one pointless game or movie related bit of fandom each year. This year was a mass effect N7 hoodie


    Anyone else make pointless fanboi purchases?
  2. not recently... but I used to buy a lot of pointless fanyboy crap :lol:

    Wow a game-themed hoodie is pretty openly geeky, nice one. I think my only possession on those lines is a Hadoken t-shirt. I also have Sonic 1 on my iPhone. Does the fact that I've gone back to Final Fantasy VIII in a genuine bid to finish it (having recently done VII and then intend to do IX and XIII eventually) count as a geeky indulgence?

    I have a Dick Tracy watch.

    Just thought I'd mention it.

    I am however very geeky and buy all sorts of crap....

    Aye Jim, it is a bit openly geeky, but the best thing is most people won't even know what it is lol and to be fair it is one of the finest quality hoodies I have ever owned, geeky AND well made... gaddamn!

    I can't say I've got anything at this moment, although I'm more than likely going to buy a load of these at some point

    Mind you I'm probably more anime otaku than geek these days lol

    Stormtrooper figure who has been decked out to look like a 70's porn star, mustache and R2 medalion.

    And that is just in my living room! There are loads more bits in my bedroom, some of my transformers are up there, as well as my family guy stuff! Peter vs the Giant Chicken being my favourite.

    Ok and there is the tattoos. But that has been covered!

    oh dear..... but have no shame I say! if you dont have or dont want to buy at least one thing geeky then you have to be just a tad drab.

    I recently went back into a craze of playing the psp, Monster Hunter Freedom to be extact, then onto Dragon Quest on the DS, love it!

    After seeing those mario bits becky I think i'm going to have to do myself some novelty shopping! :)
