Do you miss your most favorite Hostess snack that could survive an apocalypse but not a cooperation shutdown?

WELL SUCK IT UP AND DEAL WITH IT, BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST YOU'RE GONNA GET! [geekologie]

If the Legend of Zelda video game franchise isn't awesome enough, we now have a fan-made series as if the Legend of Zelda were a modern-day cartoon, and it's actually pretty awesome. [blastr]

If you're a Batman fan, and honestly, who isn't? You're most defs gonna want these Batman bookshelves. Even if you don't read those things called books, it's still pretty awesome to just have on your wall. [geekologie]

So a guy decided to eat the entire Hobbit menu from Denny's, in 20 minutes. Well there goes his New Year's resolution to lose weight. [blastr]

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]

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.

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]
