Geek Links of the Week

Considering that I run a geek blog, it should come as a surprise that I have a rather large collection of late 90s and early 2000s Star Wars novels. Even I can tell that they aren’t all good. Just read early Luceno stuff when he relies too heavily on references to events from the movies. Anyhow, here are 12 of the worst things in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. [io9]

Robert Kirkman, he of The Walking Dead fame, is creating a new comic series about exorcism. It hasn’t even come out yet but it’s already in development for TV. This man pretty much prints money now. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Andy Ihnatko explains why he went from being a long-time iPhone user to an Android man. [TechHive]

If Mr. Burns were to need to call in nine ringers to start for the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant softball team today, which MLB superstars would he/Smithers get and what odd fate would prevent them from making the big game? [The Triangle]

In my big weekly gaming column that I have on a couple of sites, I examine the reasons why publishers are pushing their big releases back to the after-Christmas season. [The Lowdown Blog]
