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]

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]

Welcome! Friday is here, once again. It seems like I JUST got done typing the last one up. Geez! So, OK, this week I've been playing the crap out of Minecraft. I discovered the YOGBOX, and Singleplayer has been turned from a rather boring way to play, to an amazing way to play. I definitely recommend playing the YOGBOX if you're any kind of a fan of Minecraft. [YOGBOX] Awesome, let's get started.
I think I will begin the Round-Up, this week, with a story. A story of the Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles. It begins with a very well known and beloved rag-tag gang of ninja turtles, who entered our lives in the 90s with an amazing cartoon show. Following the cartoon were 3 live-action films. Followed by other cartoon adaptations of the series, as well as a CGI movie. All of which have retained the very root of what makes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
It is now present day. We hear the announcement that the live-action movies are being rebooted. Fangirls and Fanboys everywhere become cautiously excited. Enter Michael Bay as the director. He announces that these Ninja Turtles will not be mutants in his movie, but aliens. Fanboys and girls everywhere nearly riot in the streets. Flipping over cars, breaking out store windows, sending stern letters. A voice actor from the original live-action movies speaks out about his feelings towards this decision. The cry is loud, and deafening. People from all over the world are speaking out. These cries are heard by Michael Bay, and yet, his reply is, "Take a chill pill." To add to the salt in the wound by Michael Bay, one of the co-creators of the Ninja Turtles speaks out in Michael Bay's defense in this mutant to alien decision. So far we've been wounded, we've had salt thrown in it, and now, as we sit there licking the wound, a wild bunny appears. Awwww, how cute, but as it turns out, this is a werewolf bunny! Yes... yes... a werewolf bunny, that tears into our wound and leaves us with nothing but a nub for an arm, because this werewolf bunny turns out to be the OTHER co-creator of the Ninja Turtles, giving his support for Michael Bay's decision. As we lay twitching on the ground in pain and disgust, our body jerks real hard, our eyes open, and we realize this werewolf bunny wasn't real, but only a dream. We look down at our arm, and see it's still there, but the wound is still pretty bad. We look to the side and see a little bunny hopping about. "OH NO!" we exclaim to ourselves, as we remember our dream. Fortunately this bunny is just a cute bunny who seems to have been misunderstood.
And this, my friends, is where the story resides. Only the future will tell what's in store, and we can only take guesses as to the outcome. Time will tell if these beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will become the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles, or, as the Nostalgia Critic thinks... Michael Bay's Racist Alien Big Boobied Explosions.
How do I follow up an AMAZING story like that, you ask? With LASERS!
Some of you Apple fans might want to look away. A man destroys an new iPad 3 with nothing but lasers. It's a beautiful sight. [geekologie]
Not awesome enough for you? How about a laser that plays the Portal theme song as it etches the Aperature logo. [geekologie]
Ok, ok, enough about lasers. Next on the list, we have some TV news.
The new Doctor Who companion has been announced. [blastr]
If Fringe is actually canceled, we may see a season 5 in comic book form. [blastr]
