Nick’s Friday Round-Up

What sucks worse than screwing up in front of your friends? How about screwing up on national TV. A BBC newscast used the Halo UNSC logo as the logo for the United Nations Security Council. lulzĀ  [geekosystem]

Prepare to be astounded, once again, by CryEngine 3. The soft-body physics are absolutely amazing. I know what you're thinking, and no, it has nothing to do with Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. [buzzfeed]

I know most of us have thought, while playing Mass Effect, "Man, I wish I had a themed hoodie to wear while playing this amazing game." WELL NOW YOU CAN!.... ALMOST! A fan has designed some Mass Effect themed hoodies, and sent them to Bioware. Bioware is considering to produce a few of them as a test batch. [geekologie]

In all my videogame playing years, I've heard a few rumors and such about various games. Such as, so-and-so is in this game, or if you do "this", then "this" will happen. Most of them being absolute crap and lies! Here are 7 of the cruelest hoaxes and urban legends in videogame history. [dorkly]

More rumors are floating about, saying that George Lucas may be leaving Lucasfilm behind to pursue what he did in the beginning of his career, and produce independent films. [blastr]

Here ya go, you can watch some robots dancing to a short clip of "Thriller". [buzzfeed]

A Fraggle Rock movie is actually happening. [buzzfeed]

How do you know when you've found the perfect girl? When she says, "Yes, let's have a Minecraft themed wedding." NEVER LET THAT GIRL GO! [geekologie]

Yo dawg, I hurd u liek Irons, so we put Iron Man on an iron, so you can iron with an Iron iron. [geekologie]

The first photos from Iron Man 3 are very patriotic. [blastr]

The fish in this tank don't know how awesome they actually have it. A LEGO Super Mario Bros. level as aquarium decorations. [geekosystem]

Survival horror games are a bit cliche, however, "Among the Sleep" is looking to break out of that cliche, with a survival horror experienced from the perspective of a toddler. [gammasquad]

In true Nick tradition, I'm saving the best for last. The latest Doctor Who minisode, created to help promote the 2012 London Olympics. [geekosystem]


Nick’s Time Travel Tuesday: TGIF

Growing up, there were two blocks of television I always looked forward to, aside from Saturday morning cartoons. First there was (future theme spoiler alert) SNICK, and secondly there was TGIF. So if you haven't figured it out already, here are a few theme songs from some of my favorite TGIF shows.

Note 1: A couple of them weren't embeddable, so you'll just have to click the link.
