A few weeks back we posted about Kickstarter funding Double Fine Adventure, with amazing results. Here are 6 Indie video games (including Double Fine Adventure) that Kickstarter made possible. [cracked]

So what's with lists being "top 6"? Whatever happened to top 10? Seriously, it's just 4 more. Stop being so lazy. ANYWAY! Here are the 6 worst endings in video game history, according to Dorkly. And no, Mass Effect 3 isn't in the list. [dorkly]

Hey Kel, why don't you grab a laser, some firecrackers, and a balloon, and meet me in the garage. COME ON, SPICY! Bu-but Kenan... Kenan.. KENAN! AWWW here it goes. [geekologie]

Let's play a little game of "What If".

What if Daleks put their world-destroying ways on hold, and created a relaxation tape? [youtube]

What if Doctor Who regenerated into a girl? There may be some credibility to an April Fools joke/rumor. [blastr]

What if they made a Doctor Who RPG in the 90s. [collegehumor]

What if Angry Birds were an 80s PC game. [youtube]

What if Alfred Hitchcock movies were Nintendo game box-art? [geekologie]

What if video games were actually children's books? [dorkly]

What if Yoda spoke normally? [vimeo]

What if you still had all the toys from your childhood, and kept them in good condition? How much would they be worth? [buzzfeed]

What if Scorpian, from Mortal Kombat, were to replace Mario in Super Mario Bros? [howtogeek]

What if a Rainbow Pegacorn were turned into an amazingly detailed cake? [geekologie]

As we all know, Easter is this Sunday, and this post wouldn't be complete without a couple Easter related links.

Tired of the same old Easter-egg hunt every year? Why not have an Easter-egg hunt in the dark, with glowing eggs? Here's a super simple way to make glow-in-the-dark eggs. [howtogeek]

Where my Peeps at?!? Well, this being Easter, they're everywhere. So much so that they've had some spare time to recreate some Sci-Fi dioramas. [blastr]

And finally, let's take a look at some Easter eggs gone geek. [dorkly]


Time-Travel Tuesday

For just over a week now, I've been posting a retro TV intro/theme song video on twitter every day, because... nostalgia. Seriously who doesn't love a good, hard slap in the face of the good ol' days, looking back and remembering the sweet theme songs from the 80s and 90s? I totally just sounded like a TIME-LIFE infomercial right there. So I figured, why not do a weekly (or bi-weekly) (or whenever I feel like it) 'Time-Travel Tuesday', where I post a collection of all the theme songs I've posted on Twitter throughout the week. Sounds like a plan, right? Right! LET'S DO THIS!

Live-Action Voltron Short Film For You Eighties Childrenz

If you're a child of the 80's, like myself, then you grew up watching amazing cartoons like, The Transformers, David the Gnome, Count Duckula, Danger Mouse, Gummi Bears, Dragon's Lair, Duck Tales, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, and even Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos. I could go on and on naming awesome 80's cartoons, however, there was one cartoon that shined at the top of my list of favorites, and that was Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

I've always wanted to see live-action versions of many of these cartoons, and quite a few of them have actually come to be made. Now whether you liked these live-action movie versions, or not, is a different story, but that's up to you and your personal opinions, which may or may not be wrong.

A guy by the name of Alex Albrecht has directed a very well made, short, live-action Voltron film. This 3 minute video is another example of the kind of amazing movies that could be made if more independent directors could get the funding to create them, and get their movies out to the public. I would love to see this small concept turn into a full length feature film.

So now, I present to you... Voltron: The End
