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

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]
