Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Once again, I ran across a video that absolutely deserves to be spotlighted in this post, so here it is. Possibly the best video ever to grace the stage of the internet.

Want to really screw with peoples minds? Decorate your house with glitch furniture. Make your house look like a dying computer screen. [io9]

If you need an amazing graphic of war-torn Syria, go ahead and grab a picture from Assassin's Creed. This news station did. [geekosystem]

Who's fingers are THAT small to make a half-inch papercraft Millennium Falcon. [blastr]

Let's scale things up a bit with a life size papercraft Zelda. [geekologie]

If you haven't heard, which I don't know how you couldn't have, there's a kickstarter to raise $2,000,000 to help make a Veronica Mars movie. Within the first 4 hours, it had already received 1 million, which is just one of at least 3 records it broke for kickstarter. As of me writing this, it's already surpassed that, by earning $3.3 million. Let me say that VM is my second favorite shows ever, and this pleases me greatly. [wired]

The previous wired article raised many questions, such as if people were duped into actually giving money toward the project. Here is a conversation by some IGN editors to help answer these questions. [youtube]

With the success of the Veronica Mars movie kickstarter, there's even a possibly of another one of my top favorite shows ever to have a movie. Chuck! [blastr]

Now why would you want to manually switch songs, when your headphones can do it for you by reading your mind based on your mood. [geekologie]

Minecraft, in my opinion, is an amazing game, and now it's even being used as an educational tool, possibly the ultimate educational tool. [geekosystem]

As it turns out, elderly people who play video games tend to be happier and more active. [geekosystem]

There are games that have amazing launches, earning buttloads of money, and then there are some that nearly flop, however, a bad launch doesn't necessarily mean the game will fail. Here are the 9 worst videogame launches of all time. [dorkly]

Just because there's been a lack of news about a new sequel to Bill and Ted, doesn't mean the movie has been delayed. Movies just take time. [blastr]

  1. Hmm, I notice that all of those 9 worst launches involved online games, mostly involving MMOs and/or server overload. Hmmmmm.

  2. You know, with all the cat posts, I had almost been brought to the conclusion that Lisa posted this week’s round up. I was wrong…
