To many, Iron Maiden is known as a defining rock band that they grew up with. To many more, the group is known for amazing guitar riffs and rewardingly difficult songs in the game Rock Band.
Iron Maiden has embraced the fact that it has earned so many new fans in the gaming community by launching a new online game called The Final Frontier to promote a new album of the same name.
Flash game developer Matmi created the simplistic game, describing it by saying, "Iron Maiden are traveling deep into space to play their first intergalactic gig."
Basically, players explore the galaxy as Iron Maiden but must destroy space pirates and find their lost band equipment along the way.
Iron Maiden also had a similar tie-in with its Flight 666 album. The Flight 666 online game was reportedly played more than 4.5 million times.

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
