Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Let's hurt you right in the childhood. 5 Creepy things you never noticed about famous kids cartoons. [cracked]

Got a little spare change? You can purchase a $15,000 solid gold LEGO brick. [geekosystem]

IT'S SORCERY! Wait.. no, just anamorphic illusions. [geekologie]

Whether you're a fan of card tricks, or poker, or old maid, you NEED these Legend of Zelda playing cards. [geekologie]

Everyone loves Super Mario Bros. But there's a dark side to the game series. Here are 6 horrible truths about Super Mario Bros. [dorkly]

Another hoodie. This time it's less video game, and more scary sci-fi drama. Get your very own LOTR Wraith hoodie. [geekologie]

What do you get when you combine cute and cuddly with sci-fi awesome in the form of a cake? You get Winnie the Pooh Doctor Who. [geekologie]

Email has never been the best way for sending large files, and most people have to resort to programs like Dropbox. Google wants to fix that by combining Google Drive with Gmail, allowing you to easily send 10gb files. [geekosystem]

Sorry folks, but there will be no multiplayer for Bioshock Infinite. (sad trombone) [geekosystem]

The Legend of Digital Zelda. A video you won't regret watching. Seriously... go watch it. [howtogeek]

With winter upon us, it's time to get your snowflake on. Your Star Wars snowflake, that is. [anthonyherreradesigns]

It's those cold winter months, and that means ice on your windshield. You can be the coolest kid in school with this wampa-arm ice scraper. [geekologie]

It's not halloween anymore, but scaring people is year-round lulz. Check out this "Ghost in the elevator" prank. [blastr]

With the Wii U now released, what's the smartest thing to do with the original Wii? Make it smaller, of course! But only for Canada. The Tiny Wii. It'll be the most tiniest fun you'll ever have, eh! [gammasquad]

Don't know what to get your geek friends for Christmas, and you don't have much  money to spend? Give them a cute and cuddly sci-fi plush toy. It'll soften even the most hardened gamer's heart. [blastr]

Christmas is coming up, and you need to decide which game you want to add to your Christmas list, but for some reason you can only ask for one. I don't know why, that's just the stipulation. Do you ask for Hitman, Dishonored, or Assassin's Creed III? Well here's a rundown comparison to help you make that choice. [gammasquad]

If you haven't played it already, there's now a demo of DMC: Devil May Cry for download on PSN and XBOX Live. [warpzoned]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Party Spock is in the Round-Up Tonight Edition

I'm going to start by posting this. Why? Because, Japan. Because, I can, Because lulz. Because... I don't even know. [youtube]

I really can't top that, which makes me wonder why I didn't end with it instead... Oh well.

Ever wanted to be a superhero? Well, guess what. That's never gonna happen, but I have the next best thing. You can get your head on a superhero action figure. Close enough, right? [geekologie]

Speaking of things that will never happen; here are 10 nerd dreams that will never come true. [dorkly]

You know all those old video games sitting on your shelf that you never play anymore? Society would have you believe that you should trade them in to Gamestop. Well, guess what. There are more options now than just Gamestop. Let's find out who gives you the best value for your old games. [gammasquad]

I've played Halo and Halo 2, and a tiny bit of Halo 3. I suck at FPS's, so after Halo 2, I was pretty much spent. However, for those of you still hardcore into the Halo franchise, it's officially been announced when Halo 4 will be released. [geekosystem]

Now Metroid, on the other hand, is a game franchise I can get behind. For those of you into the whole paper folding world, I present to you a 7 foot tall, papercraft Samus. [geekologie]

Papercraft and Metroid aren't your thing? Ok then, let's go a little more oldschool with Frogger. Not just regular Frogger, no no. 5th Avenue Frogger. You can play Frogger in real-time from 5th Ave. in NYC, against actual NYC traffic. [gizmodo]

Who doesn't enjoy a fun game of mini-golf? What about a video game inspired mini-golf course, including Minecraft and Portal? [geekologie]

Last week we saw a bunch of new trailers from CAPCOM. This week I have a bunch of new trailers from NAMCO BANDAI, including Dragon Ball Z for Kinect. This might be the game that convinces me to get the Kinect. Seriously, I'd KAMEHAMEHA the crap out of that game. [gammasquad]

This is NOT actual camera footage, this is a trailer for the CryENGINE 3.4 to be used with the upcoming Crysis game. inb4 your video card can't handle it, and your stuck playing on the lowest graphic settings causing the game to look nothing like it does in the trailer. [geekologie]

Good ol' Freddie25 on Youtube has put together an awesomazing video game medley. See if you can guess all the songs. There's a cheat sheet in the video description. [youtube]

Earlier the rumor was thrown around that the next Doctor Who could actually be a girl. Well I have some more speculation to throw into the pot of Who. There's also the possibility that it could be Capt. Jack. "HOW WOULD THAT HAPPEN?", you ask? Not sure, but it's still a possibility. [blastr]

Here's a very good replica of a proton pack from Ghostbusters, and it's ONLY $850.00 [geekologie]

Speaking of Ghostbusters, there's a possibility of Bill Murray being in Ghostbusters 3. Who knows... It's been a bunch of back and forth. I guess only time will tell. [blastr]

With the fate of Fringe still up in the air, they've actually created 2 season finale's. Hopefully it'll just be a season finale and not a series finale. [blastr]

The snozzberries taste like snozzberries, the jaffa cakes taste like jaffa cakes! Apparently some scientific people took a page from Willy Wonka and actually created IRL lickable wallpaper. I'm a bit hesitant with how sanitary this is. [geekologie]

Here's a once-in-a-lifetime picture of 8 bolts of lightning hitting the San Francisco Bay bridge. [dailymail]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: UMAD BRO? Edition

This is just soooo wrong, making fun of Canada like that. We all know Canadians have Mounties, not a CSI.

This week has been awesome, cuz it finally snowed, and not crappy snow, but the good kind you can make snowmen with. I made a tiny snowman in front of the movie theater last night. When I perfect my skills, I'll be making snowman works of art such as this. Welp... there's not much to talk about, so let's just jump into this thing.

We all know Whitney Houston passed away recently, and in Save Point fashion, I've found the best tribute ever made. Vegeta's tribute. [youtube]

What would you say if I told you that Link and Samus action figures will soon be released, with two versions of Samus, both with and without armor? What if I said, the Armored Samus action figure would be fully poseable, like seriously poseable for all your action-packed posing needs. *pew* *pew* *pew* [geekologie]

Speaking of "*pew* *pew* *pew*", what do you get when you shoot a large acrylic slab with a particle accelerator? Freakin' amazing fractal art, that's what! I'll take two, thanks. [geekosystem]

Normally you wouldn't think it dangerous to light a firecracker and drop it down a sewer manhole. Well guess what... Looks like this dude thought the same thing. Boy was he wrong. Hey, two little kids next to him, you might want to run away before you get crushed. What has this video taught us? Don't throw firecrackers in the Ninja Turtles home. Their booby traps will MESS YOU UP! [youtube]

TMNT 1 and 2 were awesome movies. TMNT 3, well... meh. Maybe we can rectify TMNT 3 with a TMNT live-action reboot? What do you think? Turns out Jonathan Liebesman, the guy who directed Battle L.A., is in negotiations to direct a new one. I LOVE me some live-action Ninja Turtles. If this goes though, he better not screw it up, that's all I'm sayin'. [gammasquad]

Another franchise in the works of becoming a live action movie is Twisted Metal, to be written and directed by Brian Taylor. This was one of my favorite games to play on the PlayStation. Over time it has developed an in depth and dark storyline for each of the characters. This has the potential to become a seriously amazing movie if Brian does it right. [geekosystem]

We have 3 years until 2015. That's the year when hoverboards are suppose to be made and already widely circulated. Mattel will soon be releasing Hoverboard replicas. Sadly it's only a replica of Marty's hoverboard, and as it clearly states on the packaging, it does not work on water. Looks like I'll have to wait a few years to get a Pitbull, because it's got POWAH!! [geekologie]

Whether you love or hate the fact that Star Wars is coming out in 3D, the fact is, that it's happening, and there's nothing you can do about it. George Lucas will keep finding ways to re-release the Star Wars movies, and he'll keep finding little things to change about it. Even if you hate this, is it really all that bad? Here's 4 things you need to accept about George Lucas. [cracked]

Are you only familiar with 3 or 4 Darths in the Star Wars universe? Educate yourself, with a list of ALL THE DARTHS!! in all of the Star Wars. (darth maul will always be my favorite darth. come at me bro) [ugo]

What if Star Wars actually took place within Feudal Japan? What would the characters look like? Let's find out, shall we? [howtogeek]

I'll finish up this Round-Up by destroying small bits of your childhood. Or at least show you things about it that you never realized. [buzzfeed]

GAME BONUS: Do you love Shadow of the Colossus? How about a simplified, yet still nearly as fun flash game with the same gameplay style? I present to you, Heir. [armorgames]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: BLOW… YOUR… MIND… EDITION

That was your mind, and that's the little girl who doesn't give two flying flips about it. Nick's Round-Up for Friday the 13th has begun. I'm gonna start of small and build up to the mind explosion. Let us commence.

I'll begin with something food-related. I'm actually a pretty good cook. Especially when it comes to baking. I've never had any training, so for any of us in the same boat, we tend to believe some things about cooking that are actually lies, ALL LIES!! Here are 9 ridiculous cooking myths that most of you probably thought to be truths. HAHA, SUCKERS! Oh wait... I have to admit, believed a couple of them. Maybe now, Lisa will be able to cook something besides cereal... Probably not. [cracked]

Here's a bit of nostalgia. I remember growing up, waking up early every Saturday to watch cartoons. When Saturday-morning cartoons were GOOD. Not like the crap they show today. Here are some cartoons from the 1990's that we want back, and that today's generation could benefit from. Maybe they'll actually grow some brain cells back that they've lost from the complete stupidity of today's cartoons.[ugo]

I'm not one to ever have any kind of interest in makeup, but this particular line actually caught my eye. A new brand called Fotoshop by Adobé. Remove wrinkles with a swipe of the brush. Lose those 40 extra pounds and reshape your body without the mess of surgery. It also works for men, animals, landscapes, and pretty much whatever you want to change. Check it out. Fotoshop by Adobé [vimeo]

Google Maps has given us a few lulz now and then with things they've captured as they've intrusively driven down our streets, taking pictures. Some of the things they've caught, they've actually had to blur out. This instance, as of yesterday, was not blurred. Sadly I just now checked it, and they blurred it. GRRRR. However, you can still see it, even with the blur.  Just click on the blur. The blur is a woman walking. You won't be disappoint. [google maps] UPDATE: I found a website that saved the original pictures. Now you can fully enjoy the lulz! [flowerpoop]

As you all know, I love Skyrim. If you haven't figured that out by now, well then, apparently you don't read my Round-Ups very often, which is your own loss. Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wonder what Skyrim would be like in the present day?" Well, the good people at GroBroPros, on youtube, have created a video of that very thing. Here is SKYRIM 2012 [youtube]

You remember watching The Street Fighter series, right? Well our good pals at TheGameStation have created a new video spoof of the show Pawn Stars, creatively called, PWN Stars. If you don't laugh during this video, you've either never watched Pawn Stars, or never played any Legend of Zelda games. In either case, you're dead to me. [youtube]

I've been holding on to this link for the past few weeks. Since before Christmas. I believe now is the time to post it to you. A company in France has developed a special lighting display called CT Light Concept. Basically, it's able to project a 3D-style lighting display onto buildings, and thus opening new areas of awesome! Let the mind-blowing begin! [gammasquad]

If you've ever been to NYC or LA or Vancouver, or well, basically any big city with a good source of tourism, then you've seen a busker or two. a.k.a. street performer. I've seen people with some pretty amazing talents, but NOTHING quite like this. This guy absolutely blows me away. Apparently he didn't listen when his mom told him not to finger-paint on the walls, and it's a good thing he didn't. Whenever I finger-paint, it comes out looking like this. Whatever... I suck. Just watch the video. [youtube]

Here ya go. You can thank me later. [b3ta]

AND NOW... THE MOST EPIC THING YOU WILL EVER SEE, EVER! EVER! I tried to prepare you for this a couple days ago. I honestly don't think there's enough time to be able to train yourself to handle something this awesomazing. Maybe a mute monk up in the mountains of somewhere, with 50 years of training, but other than that, no. I am not responsible for anything that may happen to you during the viewing of this video. You can't say I didn't warn you. Lisa, if there's one thing you click on in all my Round-Ups, this would be the thing. [youtube]

St. Nick’s Friday Round-Up: CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR Edition

And a follow up picture...

This picture could only be better if they dressed up another labrador as one of the Bumpus' dogs.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Well... almost. Just two more days. Are you excite? Hopefully I can throw some extra Christmas cheer your way with a completely Christmas themed Round-Up.

What Christmas would be complete without The Grinch? We've all seen it, and if you haven't... c'mon, srsly? Where the heck have you been for the past 45 years? You have absolutely no excuse! Go watch it right now, then you can come back and finish reading the rest of this. Consider yourself shunned. Now, for the rest of us, here are 7 things about The Grinch, that you might not know. SPOILER ALERT: His heart grew 3 sizes that day, kinda like Lisa's ego. [warmingglow]

When I say Minecraft, the first thing you think about is Christmas, right? No? Well this might help. Some Minecraft wrapping paper. Just make sure your presents are a perfect cube shape. [geekosystem]

Two more days until Christmas also means two more days until the Doctor Who Christmas episode! For those who can't wait, here are 9 new awesome, but 'spoilery', Doctor Who Christmas pics. [blastr]

Remember all those crazy ornaments you used to put on the tree from back when you were a kid. You know the ones I'm talking about. The ones you made in school. The seriously crappy and ugly ones that nobody would ever want on their tree except for your mom, and only because you made it. Well those ornaments don't even compare to the creepiness of these ones. 11 of the most unintentionally creeeeeeepy Christmas ornaments. [cracked]

Calvin and Hobbes, one of the best comics ever made, and every winter those two made some of the most awesomely creepy snowmen. A guy by the name of JimFrommeyer recreated some of these snowmen in a horrific snowman tribute video. [geekosystem]

Want a couple minutes of entertainment? Go to Google and search "let it snow" without the quotes, then sit back and enjoy. When it finishes, click and drag your mouse around the screen. =D If you don't want to take the extra effort to go to Google yourself, then fine... I'll do it for you. [google]

Poor Megatron keeps getting the same ol' thing for Christmas, but this Christmas just might be a little different. [youtube]

Consider these next two videos, my gift to you. Merry Christmas.
Video 1: People walking down steps and slipping on a frozen landing. So relaxing. [youtube]
Video 2: A snowman prank that goes terribly wrong. [youtube]

I bet you got through this entire post thinking to yourself, "There's no way he's gonna be able to link Skyrim with Christmas. Not a chance." Well, my friend, you would be completely WRONG! Yes, I have a Christmas related Skyrim link, and it's probably my most favorite one on this list. A guy by the name of Mitch has most epicly decked his halls (and by "halls" I mean "house") with a light show. Forget syncing your lights to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, that's so last 5 years. Mitch synced his house to the theme from Skyrim. SO awesome. [gammasquad]
