Nick’s Friday Round-Up: It’s My Birthday Edition!

Yes, folks, as is states in the title, today is my birthday! After an entire year of gaining XP, I've finally leveled up. So other than that, this Round-Up will go on as usual. Please enjoy.

I grew up watching the original Transformers series. I loved, and still love Transformers. Yes, I even enjoyed the Michael Bay movies. Why? Uhhh.. Transformers, that's why! I have no reservations about saying that on this site, because Lisa's not even gonna read this, so it don't even matter. haha OK, BACK ON POINT...  During the course of the existence of Transformers, there have been a few... bizarre ones to say the least. [geekosystem]

Want to be a genius, or at least look like you are? Try these nifty tricks! [cracked]

If you enjoy a good pair of high heels then why not buy yourself a nerded out pair of R2D2 high heels. You'll be the envy of everyone at the party. [geekologie]

None of you can say you haven't imagined how awesome it would be to have a super power, but there are a few super powers that look like they'd be amazing to have, but in real world physics and what-not, they would suck. [cracked]

Now why isn't everyone's grandpa as awesome as this guy? Grandpa plays Call of Duty and Halo, and totally enjoys every minute of it. To be honest, he'd probably kick my but. I've stated many times in the past... I suck at FPSs. I won't even front. [geekologie]

There is now, officially, a director for Star Wars Episode VII. [geekosystem]

Do you have a video game room, but it's missing that one thing that you can't quite place your finger on? Well look no more, I've found it for you. You need this wooden NES controller coffee table, DUH! [geekologie]

Most of the time video games based off of movies or TV shows, to put it mildly, SUCK! However, once in a while you get a gem or two that don't. Here are the 10 greatest videogames based on TV shows. [dorkly]

As we all know, Valentine's Day is 2 weeks away. What do you get for your significant other? How about a geeky Valentine's card! [gammasquad]

Also, if you want to give me a b-day present. Go check out my Minecraft series on my Youtube channel. Any Likes, Subscribes and comments are great b-day presents! [youtube]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Convert your horse into a dragon with this simple device. [geekologie]

Convert your doggy into a duck with this simple device. [geekologie]

Looks like the beginning of Skynet is upon us. Don't even think about running. This robot runs faster than you, and it's freakin' creepy looking to boot. [geekosystem]

What's more awesome than playing Assassin's Creed? Watching Assassin's Creed IRL, that's what. Prepare to be amazed. [geekologie]

New School video games vs Old School video games, who would win? Check out this live-action video to find out. [gammasquad]

Can you imagine if the Justice League world and the Transformers world were thrown together? We almost got to find out, but sadly, legal crap got in the way. [blastr]

I don't usually mention Star Trek things on here, but when I do, it's awesome. How about this 6-player Starship Bridge Simulator game. I'm not a huge Star Trek fan, but I'll admit, I'd play the heck out of this. [blastr]

Gamers are pretty outspoken about speaking their mind, but here's 15 things you'll never hear a gamer say. [dorkly]

With the WiiU coming up, it looks like the Wii has pretty-much ran its course. So let's take a look back at the top 10 best Wii games not published by Nintendo. [gammasquad]

Have a little time to kill? Why not watch 14 minutes of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zero footage. [gammasquad]

You know what's always funny? Laughing at other people's expense. There's a step in an NYC subway station that's slightly taller than the rest of the steps. A guy decided to record people walking up these steps, and hilarity ensues. [buzzfeed]

Turns out, there's one billionaire in the world who hasn't seen Jurassic Park, or if he has, he hasn't even considered the repercussions of his plans to make a real life Jurassic Park. Yes, you read that right. Cloned Dinosaurs and all, IRL. [blastr]

What would sci-fi TV shows, movies, and video games be without spaceships? Pretty crappy, that's what. Here are 7 of the greatest spaceships in video game history. [dorkly]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: These ARE the Links You’re Looking For Edition.

I'm much more comfortable with this. In fact, I'm a pro.

Pause your game, put down that comic book, stop thinking about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas episode for 2 seconds, and gather around. It's time for everybody's favorite part of the week, Nick's Friday Round-Up!

We start off with a THIS is THAT of the day. What do you get when you cross Star Wars with Dr. Seuss? How about a very entertaining Darth Vader as the Grinch mash-up. [blastr]

This is one talented dog. He loves his snack foods. Dunkers more specifically. Although there's something a little suspicious about how he's eating them. [geekosystem]

I finally got to see the Muppet movie this past Wednesday, and I loved it. It was one of the best nostalgia brain explosions I've had in quite a long time. It'll make you sing. It'll make you laugh. It'll make you cry get all choked up. <_< But what you may not have known is while the Muppets were apart, a few of them tried out for other TV and movie roles. [buzzfeed]

This isn't the nerdiest of news stories, but it's about monkeys throwing poo. MONKEYS. THROWING. POO. SRSLY, how could I not add this to the Round-Up? [geeokosystem]

This right here is another Skyrim related post. Yep, sure is. While playing the game. (that you just lost) I'm sure you've noticed there are many ways you can quickly come to your demise. This video will show you 100 ways to die. A few of my personal favorites, are numbers 7, 8, 10, 18, 22, 49, 54, 72, and 96. Enjoy. [uproxx]

So who doesn't enjoy a good opera, AMIRITE? Anybody.... anybody... yeah. Ok, well let's make an exception for 2 minutes 49 seconds, and watch this Mario opera. Trust me, you won't be disappoint. [geekosystem]

As we go about our day, we rely on many gadgets to help us get through it. We put a lot of our trust in them. Probably definitely too much. Especially in things we rely on the most for our safety i.e. cars. Here are 8 gadgets that lie to you every day. [cracked]

If you recall, back in September, Stuart posted about two floppy disk drives playing the Imperial March. Well how about this. Four floppy disk drives playing Portal's "Still Alive". [geekosystem]

To finish it off, and in honor of the beginning of December and winter approaching, I'll leave you with a winter escape game. Allowing you to take that much needed break from Skyrim. Yep... I mentioned it again. [howtogeek]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition


Yesterday was a day of giving thanks, and as American's, consuming gratuitous amounts of turkey and other foods, is how we celebrate. God bless America! The day after thanksgiving is just as sweet, with all the leftovers. You gotta love a good hearty turkey sammich. MmmMmm good. So this week's Round-Up is chock full of Thanksgiving leftovers.

As you're sitting there, enjoying your turkey sammich, sitting in your living room chair, why don't you entertain yourself with 14 of the best Thanksgiving episodes from "Sci-Fi" TV shows. The Buffy episode happens to be my personal favorite. [blastr]

I've never actually had a turducken before. It's just a bit too much to handle, but I would be more than happy to have a Cherpumple. A cherry pie, pumpkin pie and apple pie baked inside a 3 layer cake. *droooool* [buzzfeed]

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without the turkey, and don't even give me your crap about a tofurky. GET THE HECK OUT OF HERE WITH THAT TOFURKY! Ok, sorry... (not really) Now wouldn't it be even greater with that sense of accomplishment knowing that you hunted your own Thanksgiving turkey? Yes it would. So go ahead and learn how to be a turkey hunter. (lulz will happen) [geekosystem]

Everyone loves and appreciates a good infograph. You can find one for anything, including Thanksgiving. [buzzfeed]

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without watching the Cowboy's football game. This year's game was 82% better than usual, simply because of the super hot Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader that got tackled by one of the players. [youtube]

I've mentioned leftover Thanksgiving sammiches a few different times during this post. I now present to you 24 of the best looking Thanksgiving leftover sammiches you've ever seen. [buzzfeed]

I'll leave you with something non-Thanksgiving related. If you're anything like me, you've been playing Skyrim like crazy, and still not yet even put a dent in the game, but if you've powered though and actually run out of map to explore, why not travel through Morrowind and Oblivion as well... Inside the Skyrim game. [geekosystem]

Three words. BACON. COVERED. TURKEY.
