Nick’s Friday Round-Up

What is it with the world, all the sudden, developing a butt-ton of freakishly scary robots? We got the robot that can run like a cheetah, a robot that can make it's way over crazy rough terrain, the humanish shaped robot that can traverse it's way across crazy obstacles, and now we have a knife-wielding robot that can cut a cucumber paper thin, not to mention, stab you in the neck when you're not looking... or even if you are looking. [geekologie]

We can add to that robot takeover with the most advanced prosthetic arm to date. Seriously, folks, there's no way Skynet isn't here making these things. [geekologie]

One of the unseen, but definitely not unheard characters in video games are the radio hosts. You'll be trotting along, leveling up, happily listening to that radio station that you somehow have programmed into a piece of something connected to you. It comes out of nowhere people, and it's kinda creepy. ANYWAY, here are the top 10 greatest radio hosts in videogame history. [dorkly]

This is not one of the coolest rides you can have, but it's better than nothing, especially all pimped out in an R2-D2 theme. [geekologie]

And what an awesome segue that was into my next topic. Harrison Ford is totally open to coming back as Han Solo for the new Star Wars movie. [gammasquad]

So is Carrie Fisher! [blastr]

Are you tired of the daunting task of separating your skittles into different colors, because, well, you just despise those green ones? Well daunt no more! You can have your very own, personal, automatic skittle sorter. [geekologie]

Speaking of candy, a lot of you love gummi stuff. Bears, worms, robots, the list goes on, but how about a gummi python. YEP, you read that right, a ginormous snake made of gummi stuffs. [geekologie]

What are you going to store that gummi snake in? Cuz you know there's no way you're eating that in one sitting. Well how about a $45,000 refrigerator? All I'm saying is it better, as heck, better make me breakfast and serve it to me in bed. [geekologie]

Who wants some super adorbz of the day, with a hefty dose of "awesome" thrown in? YOU ALL DO! I present to you, Dragon Baby! [gammasquad]

One thing we haven't heard about in a while is Elder Scrolls Online. We got a tiny teaser trailer a while ago, but that's about it. However, now they decide to just throw a hefty update into our laps and expect us to absorb it all. OK, I THINK I WILL! [gammasquad]

Also, for good measure, let's throw in this link. Obsidian's Project Eternity is now, officially, the most funded game on Kickstarter. [geekosystem]

Do you all remember that Assassin's Creed Parkour video I showed you a few weeks back? Well they're at it again, Assassin's Creed III style. AWWW YEAH! [youtube]

So this guy re-paints realistic faces on semi to very crappily made movie character dolls/figurines/action figures, whatever you want to call them, and they are surprisingly good. Like... really surprisingly good. [geekologie]

Zombie movies come out of the woodwork like a hefty dose of termites, but once in a while, a gem will appear. A zombie movie like no other. A comedy zombie romance. That's right, you read correctly. A zombie falls in love with a human. Stop being so jaded and cynical and just freakin' watch the trailer. [gammasquad]

Let's go ahead and get it out of the way. Unless you've been living in a galaxy far far away, or under the sea, then you've heard about Disney buying LucasFilms. Now let's see how Darth Vader feels about this. [geekosystem]

Now let's see how Mark Hamill feels about this. [blastr]

Finally, what's George Lucas plan on doing with the 4 BILLION dollars he got from the sale? [geekosystem]

You know how some nights you'll be looking outside and see the moon, and you're like, "HOLY CRAP, THAT MOON IS HUUUUUUGE TONIGHT!!" Well guess what. It's no bigger than it looks at any other time of night. It's all an illusion. [geekosystem]

If your geek level isn't as high as you'd like it to be, you can always make Portal Companion Ice Cubes. You'll be the hit at your next geek gathering. It'll definitely add a +5 to your latest cosplay party. [geekologie]

What if Minecraft was the Matrix. MAYBE IT IS! [howtogeek]

Most games are pretty balanced when it comes to weaponry, however, there are those few games that give you a ridiculously overpowered weapon. This is super fun unless you're that one guy who uses it in some sort of multiplayer online match. Then you're just "that guy" who everybody hates. Here are 15 of the most overpowered weapons in videogame history. [dorkly]

Something we all have to bear through on any flight is the safety video, or if you're not even that lucky, the flight staff speaking over the intercom. I think every airline should take a tip from New Zealand and show a Hobbit themed video. Seriously, what's the downside? [geekologie]

What does every boy and girl want for Christmas? A fully functioning Fallout Pipboy! Because we all need V.A.T.S in our lives! [geekologie]

Speaking of fully functioning, here's a fully interactive Tetris Jack-O'-Lantern. [howtogeek]

A TACO CANNON! [gammasquad]

Back in the 90s there was this little game called Wolfenstein. You may or may not remember it.... Well guess what movie is currently in the works. [blastr]

Tornadoes are destructive and scary things just by themselves, but when you throw fire in the mix, God help us. [geekologie]

The coolest little miniature figurines ever. You can take an 8-bit video game character and print it as a 3D model. [howtogeek]

As a kid, one of my favorite shows was Mr. Wizard. Looking back now, it's still cool, but I had no idea Mr. Wizard was such a jerk. [gammasquad]

As you all should know, the new Resident Evil movie came out recently. Some of you may hate the series, some may love it, but if you sit down and look at the facts, the movies are actually much better than the games. [cracked]

Borderlands 2! Need I say more? I probably should. I haven't got to play it yet... but I will, mind you, I will. In the meantime let's have a look at this Claptrap cake. [geekologie]

Check out the new Robocop armor. If I were a cyborg, I think I'd be satisfied with it. [geekosystem]

With the colder weather close upon us, it's time to start pulling out the coats and jackets. This is DEFINITELY on my list of cold-weather apparel. An Assassin's Creed III jacket. You know what, I don't even need cold weather. I'd wear that thing all the time. [kotaku]

Ever wanted your own life-size Dalek replica? ME TOO!! We can all get one and then go to Comic-Con and have a Dalek takeover! Now I'm super excited. Somebody start a kickstarter to raise money for all of us to get one. [geekologie]

Guess Who. Doctor Who, that's who! Doctor Who in Guess Who. Yep, a fan-made Doctor Who themed Guess Who game. [geekologie]

So you're playing a video game, and you've already had 2 cups of coffee. All the sudden that side effect of caffeine kicks in, and you need to run to the potty, but you forget to pause the game. Here's a video of what videogame characters do when they're idle and not paused. [howtogeek]

That crazy NASA, trying to create an IRL warp drive, just like in Star Trek. [blastr]

Ninja Gaiden with zombies. And just when you thought Ninja Gaiden couldn't get any better, the creator of Mega-Man is making a cell-shaded Ninja Gaiden zombie game. [gammasquad]

As a child, we saw some seriously terrifying things. Here's some of the most terrifying out of them all. [buzzfeed]

The very first movie I saw in the theater was E.T. Yes, that definitely dates me, but whatever... deal with it. Here are 10 things you probably didn't know about E.T. [buzzfeed]

For those of you with fancy schmancy camera phones, here's a cheap trick (no, not your mom... but who knows <_<) to be able to take macro shots. [howtogeek]

Convert your horse into a dragon with this simple device. [geekologie]

Convert your doggy into a duck with this simple device. [geekologie]

Looks like the beginning of Skynet is upon us. Don't even think about running. This robot runs faster than you, and it's freakin' creepy looking to boot. [geekosystem]

What's more awesome than playing Assassin's Creed? Watching Assassin's Creed IRL, that's what. Prepare to be amazed. [geekologie]

New School video games vs Old School video games, who would win? Check out this live-action video to find out. [gammasquad]

Can you imagine if the Justice League world and the Transformers world were thrown together? We almost got to find out, but sadly, legal crap got in the way. [blastr]

I don't usually mention Star Trek things on here, but when I do, it's awesome. How about this 6-player Starship Bridge Simulator game. I'm not a huge Star Trek fan, but I'll admit, I'd play the heck out of this. [blastr]

Gamers are pretty outspoken about speaking their mind, but here's 15 things you'll never hear a gamer say. [dorkly]

With the WiiU coming up, it looks like the Wii has pretty-much ran its course. So let's take a look back at the top 10 best Wii games not published by Nintendo. [gammasquad]

Have a little time to kill? Why not watch 14 minutes of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zero footage. [gammasquad]

You know what's always funny? Laughing at other people's expense. There's a step in an NYC subway station that's slightly taller than the rest of the steps. A guy decided to record people walking up these steps, and hilarity ensues. [buzzfeed]

Turns out, there's one billionaire in the world who hasn't seen Jurassic Park, or if he has, he hasn't even considered the repercussions of his plans to make a real life Jurassic Park. Yes, you read that right. Cloned Dinosaurs and all, IRL. [blastr]

What would sci-fi TV shows, movies, and video games be without spaceships? Pretty crappy, that's what. Here are 7 of the greatest spaceships in video game history. [dorkly]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Rage, Science, Retro and More Edition

When we last left off, our heroes had been turned into aliens. We now find ourselves with a new name. No longer the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not even the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. Nope. As of now, our heroes are only the Ninja Turtles, with Michael Bay saying, "WOAH THERE! This decision is not my fault, Yo. Take yourselves another chill pill." [blastr]

In other rage-inducing news, the writer/directors of Harold and Kumar will be rebooting the Back to the Future trilogy. Yes, you read that correctly. This is something that's going to happen. However, not in the immediate future. [blastr]

If you haven't heard, Silent Hill is being re-released in HD. You would think this would be a most excellent thing. Sadly, the developers felt that it was a good idea to sacrifice the dark, atmospheric, grainy feel, for the sake of HD. Completely causing them to miss the mark of what Silent Hill is all about. Take a look. [geekosystem]

For everyone who loves video game music. Here are the 9 best current-gen video game soundtracks. [gammasquad]

What would you say if I told you that you can go supersonic without the sonic boom? You'd think I was crazy, right? Well guess what. Some dudes have developed a supersonic biplane that, when it surpasses the speed of sound, it doesn't create a sonic boom. Maybe now a flight from LA to NYC won't take 6 hours. [geekosystem]

The future is upon us! We don't have holographic touch screens just yet, but we're close. Flexible E Ink is now in mass production. It's kinda like a Kindle if it was a flexible, thin piece of plastic that'll get lost once you set it down and walk away, or your dog finds it, mistaking it for your homework. [geekosystem]

Playstation 4: Codename Orbis [geekosystem]

Do you love pizza but find yourself too lazy to call the pizza place to order it? Why not move to Dubai?  A pizza establishment there will give you a refrigerator magnet, that, at the push of a button, automatically orders your favorite pizza for you. No fuss, no muss. Ahhh, laziness at its finest. [geekologie]

Thinking of getting engaged? Married? Why not go super ape-geek with it. You can propose to her with a TARDIS themed engagement ring, then, on the big day, you can both exchange Darth Vader/Lightsaber themed wedding bands.

Just an 64-bit girl, livin' in an 8-bit world! (didn't I make this same reference last week?) Check out these movie posters converted to their 8-bit versions. [behance]

First Nickelodeon gives us "The 90s are All That". Now Cartoon Network has decided to follow in their footsteps by giving us CARTOON PLANET. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of old 90s TV shows. Let's take a look at some 90s TV supporting actors, THEN and NOW. [buzzfeed]

For those fans of Terra Nova, with that last ray of hope that Netflix would pick up a second season, it looks as if our hope has been shattered. [blastr]

I present to you, in all it's glory, the Doctor Who season 7 trailer! (insert angelic music. Just don't blink) [geekosystem]

Prepare yourselves for  a battle of EPIC proportions. Man VS Goose. Hold on to your seats, this battle gets serious. Who will be the victor? [youtube]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: (insert edition here) Edition

Hello, and welcome to the Round-Up. (I totally stole that from the Yogscast) I have to say it's been a pretty mellow week. The only exciting thing I did was place my Pineapple Mint plant from a small pot into a large pot, and placed it outside. DON'T ALL JUMP UP WITH EXCITEMENT ALL AT ONCE. Be still your hearts.

Wow, there's so much random stuff this week, I don't know where to begin... I guess I'll just close my eyes, point to my computer, and whatever link I point to, that's what I'll begin with.

And the winner IS..... AH! A link from last week that I decided to cut, because it didn't quite fit, and I had a ton of links already.

If Star Trek's warp drive were possible, it quite well could destroy the Universe, or at least anything in front of the ship as you came out of warp drive. Yes, people actually did a study about this. It's good to know we're researching important things, like cancer, and aids, and how many licks it actually DOES take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop. [universetoday]

Check it out, it's a REAL flying DeLorean! No, seriously! SERIOUSLY! Ok, fine... it's an RC flying DeLorean, using a quadricopter, but it's still freakin' awesome, and just 1 step closer to the real thing. [geekologie]

Last week I showed you Superman vs Hulk. This week it's Stan Lee vs Superman. This time it's words and not fists doing the fighting. This is Stan Lee arguing about the lack of "science" behind DC's superheroes. Mainly Superman. (also I started 3 sentences in a row with the word "this") [blastr]

Wake up in the morning feeling like L. Skywalker. Grab my bag, I'm out this tauntaun, gonna leave this city. You know your hatred for your alarm clock as soon as it beeps. That urge you get to just throw it against the wall. WELL NOW YOU CAN! With your very own Jedi Training Remote Alarm Clock! [geekosystem]

What's better than Darth Vader playing the bagpipes? Darth Vader playing the bagpipes in a kilt? Not awesome enough for  you? How about Darth Vader playing the bagpipes, in a kilt, while riding a unicycle. AWWW YEAH! Your dreams have finally come true. [geekosystem]

You know back in middle school, you would always try to sneak in some contraband. Yes, that's right, evil things that you hide in your locker and hope they don't do a locker search. That's right... a Tamagatchi! Here's a list of the top middle school contraband from the 90s. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of things from the 90s, guess what show they're bringing back. If you guessed All That, you're... WRONG, but kinda close. It's Figure It Out. Yep, and not just reruns, but actual new episodes and everything. [buzzfeed]

Why didn't anyone tell me my old-school Game Boy could do this?!? [geekologie]

Oh, Mario... We all love that little red plumber, right? Well guess what... if you look closely, you'll find out that Mario is actually a huge d-bag, and Bowser really isn't such a bad guy. [cracked]

Most all games have the huge mega-boss you have to defeat at the end of the game, but there are some instances where there are regular enemies that prove to be much more difficult to defeat. Here are 6 terrifying baddies, from video games, that you underestimated. [dorkly]

With the new Sim City 5 trailer and screencaps, it's kinda bringing back nostalgia for other Sims games. Remember Sim Ant? Yeah... that happened. Here are 5 Sim City spin-offs that should be revived. [gammasquad]

The game we've all been waiting for, for so long, has finally gotten a release date. That's right, kids. Diablo III is finally here... well... almost. [geekosystem]

Speaking of release dates. The Ninja Turtles reboot has also announced a "time frame" for it's release. [comicbookresources]

Finally, I'll leave you this week with not one, but TWO games.

Sushi Cat. I started playing for the cute, fat kittycatness, but stayed for the jiggle physics. [armorgames]

Shoot the Aliens. It's cowboys vs aliens with a little bit of angry birds thrown in. [howtogeek]

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]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Let’s Get Creative Edition

Poor Navi. She's only trying to help. =(

How are you my fellow gamers? This week has been pretty post-heavy on Save Point, which is a good thing. Now it's time for all the cool stuff we didn't tell you about. WOOHOO!

It's amazing how technology has become so intuitive that even a bearded dragon, on his basic instincts alone, can play a video game. Dare i say this would be the first bearded dragon to ever play a video game, and probably better than you. [geekosystem]

As a kid, I grew up with LEGO's. To be honest, I wasn't that great at building anything fancier than a house. I mean, you have the green, rectangular base, and you build on top of that, but you couldn't really build anything that wasn't some kind of boxy (not boxxy) looking vehicle, or anything outside the shape of a rectangle. Well guess what. One guy said, "Screw that!" and started making circles and wheels and all kinds of amazing shapes. [brickbending]

Speaking of awesome toys growing up. Let's take a trip down nostalgia lane, with the 90's kid's Christmas list. I can personally that say I owned 10 things on this list at one point. Except, where the heck are the slap bracelets? Oh yeah... they got banned from schools. -_- LAAAMMMEEE!! [buzzfeed]

Last week it snowed in my neck of the woods. The day after it snowed, I decided to try to make a snowman... with lack-luster results. And by "lack-luster results" I mean "I couldn't do it". To my defense, the snow was too fluffy and wouldn't stick together. NEXT TIME, SNOW.... NEXT TIME! I'm guessing the people who created these snowmen knew exactly what type of snow is needed to make these amazing works of nerd art. [gammasquad]

Awesome snowmen isn't where the Christmas creativity ends, not by a long shot. How about taking gingerbread and turning it into an AT-AT. Yeah that's right, or Serenity, the fastest ship in the verse. Take a look at 20 awesome sci-fi gingerbread creations. [blastr]

Remember back in elementary school, around Christmas time, your teacher would sit everybody down and have you all make snowflakes out of folded paper? Remember how yours always turned out looking like Fido got a hold of it? Wouldn't it be nice to go back in time and create super 1337 Star Wars snowflakes, pwning all the other 6 year-olds, and shoving your sick snowflake-making skills in their faces?  Yeah... that WOULD be nice. Sadly, without a TARDIS or a DeLorian this isn't possible, but you can take satisfaction in knowing that at least you can learn how to make such awesomeness now. Star Wars Snowflakes. [anthonyherreradesigns]

Darth Vader, using the force, to create a Christmas choir flash mob. Yes, this happened. My only complaint... needs moar Darth Vader ripping on the electric guitar. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of Darth Vader, why not combine two of the most evil sci-fi villains and mash them up into a bust (not that kind of bust, you pervs) of pure awesomazingness. I present to you, Skelvader! Or is it Darthetor? hmmm... [geekologie]


MIND BLOWN OF THE DAY: A team of guys at MIT have created an imaging system a.k.a. fancy camera, that records 1,000,000,000,000 (that's one trillion) frames per second. As a result it's able to record the speed of light. THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS, you can watch light as it moves toward an object to illuminate it. [gammasquad]

What Friday Round-Up would be complete without some Skyrim links? You knew it was coming. How about a Dragonborn helmet made out of bacon. [geekosystem]

A guy by the name of Benjamin S. has created a mod for the PC version of Skyrim, that let's you speak dragon shouts into your microphone, allowing you to cast them in the game. It has a bit of lag between saying it, and when it happens, but it's still quicker then going into your inventory and selecting different shouts. [geekologie]

To finish up, I'll leave you with a cockatiel whistling the Mario theme song. [geekologie] Ok, cockatiel, now do the theme from Zelda...

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: These ARE the Links You’re Looking For Edition.

I'm much more comfortable with this. In fact, I'm a pro.

Pause your game, put down that comic book, stop thinking about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas episode for 2 seconds, and gather around. It's time for everybody's favorite part of the week, Nick's Friday Round-Up!

We start off with a THIS is THAT of the day. What do you get when you cross Star Wars with Dr. Seuss? How about a very entertaining Darth Vader as the Grinch mash-up. [blastr]

This is one talented dog. He loves his snack foods. Dunkers more specifically. Although there's something a little suspicious about how he's eating them. [geekosystem]

I finally got to see the Muppet movie this past Wednesday, and I loved it. It was one of the best nostalgia brain explosions I've had in quite a long time. It'll make you sing. It'll make you laugh. It'll make you cry get all choked up. <_< But what you may not have known is while the Muppets were apart, a few of them tried out for other TV and movie roles. [buzzfeed]

This isn't the nerdiest of news stories, but it's about monkeys throwing poo. MONKEYS. THROWING. POO. SRSLY, how could I not add this to the Round-Up? [geeokosystem]

This right here is another Skyrim related post. Yep, sure is. While playing the game. (that you just lost) I'm sure you've noticed there are many ways you can quickly come to your demise. This video will show you 100 ways to die. A few of my personal favorites, are numbers 7, 8, 10, 18, 22, 49, 54, 72, and 96. Enjoy. [uproxx]

So who doesn't enjoy a good opera, AMIRITE? Anybody.... anybody... yeah. Ok, well let's make an exception for 2 minutes 49 seconds, and watch this Mario opera. Trust me, you won't be disappoint. [geekosystem]

As we go about our day, we rely on many gadgets to help us get through it. We put a lot of our trust in them. Probably definitely too much. Especially in things we rely on the most for our safety i.e. cars. Here are 8 gadgets that lie to you every day. [cracked]

If you recall, back in September, Stuart posted about two floppy disk drives playing the Imperial March. Well how about this. Four floppy disk drives playing Portal's "Still Alive". [geekosystem]

To finish it off, and in honor of the beginning of December and winter approaching, I'll leave you with a winter escape game. Allowing you to take that much needed break from Skyrim. Yep... I mentioned it again. [howtogeek]
