Nick’s Friday Round-Up

I'll start this week with something pretty awesome. The Hylian Shield made completely out of LEGOs. [geekologie]

Borderlands 2 is sitting high on the hog with its success, and there's a reason for that. It's a remorseless addiction machine, and here's 5 reasons why. [cracked]

A couple weeks ago I showed you a Mega-Man hoodie and an Assassin's Creed hoodie. Now, to add to your collection, here's an Optimus Prime hoodie. Can you tell it's hoodie season? [geekologie]

I now present to you a life-changing invention. An invention that will make you feel so stupid that you didn't think of it yourself. The Dorito's grinder hack. [buzzfeed]

The next few links will be strictly Star Wars related. You can thank me in the comments. First, I present to you, the battle of Hoth completely recreated in Minecraft using the actual audio from the movie. [blastr]

For those of you motorcycle enthusiasts, I'm looking at you, Lisa, here's one that's Boba Fett themed. [geekologie]

Here's something to feed your nightmares. The head sculpture of Yoda, re-imagined as if he were human...esqe. [gammasquad]

To finish out the Star Wars related links, those crazy people down at DARPA, have created a real-life AT-TE... well... as close to an IRL version as we can get. It may only have 4 legs, but it gets the job done, and MAN, is it super creepy! [blastr]

It's been 20 years since Cartoon Network has hit the airwaves. As a "thank you for watching" from the network, they managed to come up with a fan-service, drug-induced, super-trippy video. Seriously... what in the world? [geekosystem]

Most of the time, when you play video games, you don't think twice about defeating a level boss. Next time, sit back and think about who it is you're defeating, because they just might be the victim, and not the villain. [cracked]

I'M BATMAN! Ok, so I wasn't Batman in this particular instance. Batman was arrested... again... for, basically, being dressed as Batman, and refusing to leave a crime scene. [blastr]

Who doesn't enjoy a good easter egg in a video game? Every once in a while you'll get a celebrity appearance or two. Sometimes, they're cool, but other times it's just down right weird. [dorkly]

I shall finish out this weeks round-up with a super-insane Rube Goldberg machine, parkour style!  [gammasquad]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: What If Edition. Also, Creepy Bunnies.

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]
