Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Surprise Nick-Rage at the End Edition

 

He's just saiyan...

Well hello there Save Point-ers. inb4pics of everybody pointing at me. My weeks, since Christmas, have been full of playing and beating the main story lines of both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I have to say that they are definitely, now, some of my top favorite games. If you haven't played them yet, then I thus command thee to go play them now. You won't be disappoint. While playing these games, I have gained a unhealthy sort of crush on Harley Quinn. OH, COME ON... You know there's that one video game character who, if they were real, you'd totally date them. Albeit Harley Quinn is a mad, killing psychopath, I think I could totally get past that. ANYWAY, let's get to the Round-Up.

We'll start off with one of everybody's favorite topics over the past few years. Zombie Apocalypse weaponry. This guy has created one of the most efficiently deadly, 3-in-1 zombie apocalypse weapons you'll ever use, and surprisingly, it's not a gun. [geekologie]

Food. We all love it. We can't live without it, but apparently there are some foods that we, here in America, do live without. Some of them are baffling as to WHY we don't have them here in the great US of A. Here are some fast food flavors you won't find in the US. [neatorama]

So this is a thing that's happening.... IN EUROPE. (are you even the least bit surprised?) As a promotion for the release of Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D, a European fast food chain is selling Star Wars themed hamburgers. This doesn't seem like a bad idea, but wait until you see the Darth Vader burger... Uhhhhh, I think I'll pass. ALSO, you spelled "Vader" wrong. [geekologie]

INDIANA JONES! Who doesn't love Indiana Jones? Apparently Harrison Ford didn't know if he liked it or not. Yes, that's right, Harrison Ford never watched the trilogy until just recently. Why don't we all sit down and watch him watch it for the first time. Well, at least clips of him watching it. [buzzfeed]

While we're talking about watching movies of your young self. Two brothers sit down and watch old home movies of themselves, while giving DVD-movie-style commentary. This, my friends, is comic genius. [geekosystem]

What if old ATARI games were given realistic titles based on their box-art? Oh the magic of Photoshop Internet. [mightygodking]

I may not be the best Photoshop Paint Shop Pro editor around, but I'm pretty sure I'd be able to notice major flubs such as these, ESPECIALLY if they are going to be viewed by the mass public. The top 10 Photoshop disasters of 2011 [psdisasters]

Over the years we've seen some grand masterpieces. Paintings, cathedrals, statues, symphonies, etc... What you may not know is some of our greatest works of art have hidden Easter Eggs within them. Some of them may surprise you. Here are 7 bizarre Easter Eggs hidden within great works of art. Numbers 3 and 1 are my favorites. [cracked]

I have no segue into this one, so I'll just throw it at you. WE ALL LOVE BUBBLE WRAP! If you say you don't, you are a liar. End of story. The joys of popping each little bubble, brings a small bit of joy and warmth to our hearts. Why not have that joy every single day for an entire year? Well now you can, with a bubble wrap calendar. Pop your way to a better tomorrow. [geekosystem]

Video games now-a-days are more than just a single objective. Win the game. Get from the beginning to the end. No, games now-a-days have choices. You don't HAVE to save the princess. If you want, you can throw her into the pit of lava, while "MUAHAHAHA'ing" the entire time. I have first-hand experience, that even though the evil way may be more appealing, I find it better to take the good route. Lisa is a prime example of how being an evil, mass-murdering hero villain can come back to bite you in the butt. i.e. when she killed everyone in Fable 3 and had to come into my world of Albion to buy potions, because she didn't have anybody in her world to run the shops. Me, being the nice guy I am, allowed her to join my game to help her out, only to have her murder everyone in the city of Aurora, and continuing on to take me into Reaver's Wheel of Misfortune room and glitching my game to where I cannot escape the room. MY GAME IS BROKEN BECAUSE OF HER. Hours of game play, ruined! There is a small chance I can fix it, but I'd need her help... But Lisa is evil. I refer you to her post she made a couple weeks ago about me, Stuart and Dan. If you read what she said about me, you will get an idea of how evil she really is, in this particular instance.
Wow, sorry about that, I kinda went off there for a minute, although there was a reason for saying all that. Here are the 11 most evil choices in video games. [ugo]
