Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Whether you're a little kid or a big kid, if you're a fan of Doctor Who, this is a must-have item. [geekologie]

Remember back in the day when they had a show called MTV Cribs? Mix that with some weightlessness and you've got awesomesauce all over the place. Here's a tour of the International Space Station in the style of MTV Cribs. [howtogeek]

Some people are too smart and creative for their own good. This dude altered an oldschool Game Boy to where he can mount his Android phone onto it, and use the Game Boy as a game app controller. [geekosystem]

A dude goes through fast food drive-thru's disguised as the driver seat. MAJOR lulz ensue. [geekologie]

Sometimes games getting cancelled before being released is a good thing, sometimes not. Either way, what happened has happened.  Here are 10 of the greatest cancelled projects in videogame history. [dorkly]

Want to play ice cube Tetris in your water glass? WE ALL DO! Although, I'm not sure how you're gonna get all that ice in one little glass, but that's not the point. The point is that there's a DIY on how to make your own Tetris ice cube molds. [howtogeek]

You don't have to be a card player to need these. Official Legend of Zelda playing cards. [geekologie]

If you haven't yet seen the trailer for Pacific Rim, you should totally go watch it. You may notice a familiar voice in the trailer. Yep, that's the voice of GLaDOS from Portal, but only in the trailer. The voice will be a bit different for the actual movie. [kotaku]

Playing video games makes you a better employee. More specifically... hardcore WoW players make better employees. YEP! This is true. [blastr]

2012 is over and it's time for another year of videogames. Here are a few lessons that game developers can learn from 2012 gaming. [gammasquad]

If you haven't seen Wreck-It Ralph yet, what's the matter with you? On the plus side, you'll be able to download it before it gets released on DVD and Blu-Ray. [geekosystem]

LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes is coming this fall! If it's anything like LEGO Batman 2, then it's definitely a must buy. [warpzoned]

I'm a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I feel pretty confident to say that most of you are as well. Recently one of the stunt coordinators who worked on the show started releasing some behind-the-scenes stunt footage on Youtube. Why are you still reading? GO WATCH IT! [blastr]

Also, don't forget to check out my Minecraft series on Youtube. Yes, this is shameless self promotion. I can live with that. [youtube]


Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Awesome Stuff Edition

Yes, yes it is.

Hello people of the instanets, Nick here. It's Friday, so you all know what that means... REBECCA BLACK! Wait... no... sorry. FRIDAY ROUND-UP!

Do you want to be the envy of all your friends this Halloween? Then why don't you make your very own Optimus Prime costume. It's pretty legit. []

You know how your parents were always telling you to stop playing video games and go outside and play? Well now you have a legitimate reason for playing them. Well... other than the fact that video games are AWESOME. They teach you life skills. []

I know I'm always thinking to myself what kind of ammo I'm gonna need during a zombie apocalypse, because, let's be honest, It's gonna happen someday. Well now you don't have to think about it. You can now buy live ammunition, specifically for fighting off zombies. []

This really doesn't even need an intro summary, or whatever these paragraphs are called. It's the freakin' MUPPETS! The new Muppet movie trailer. Enjoy the awesome. [Youtube]

Are you annoyed with trying to find a place to set your portable webcam? Do you want to do fancy schmancy angles with it, or just put it someplace out of your way? Well here's a how-to on connecting your webcam to a swing-arm lamp. [TheNewHobbyist]
