Nick’s Friday Round-Up

In movies, there's a thing called "foreshadowing". This is when a movie shows you something early in the movie, seemingly for no reason, so when it happens again later in the movie, it makes sense. Sometimes it's in your face, while other times it's tiny clues that you can completely miss. Here are 5 examples. [cracked]

Someone built a full-scale X-Wing Figher... out of 5 million LEGOs. [blastr]

A father/son team put together a full-size arcade in their basement. I wouldn't even consider doing this. The main reason being that my basement is filled with spiders, and there's no way I'm going down there. [geekologie]

There has always been a battle between the Star Wars fandom and the Trekkies. With that said, you should watch this video. Death Star vs Enterprise. [blastr]

Ever wondered to yourself what Batman and Superman would smell like? Well wonder no more. You can purchase their cologne. I'm serious... [geekologie]

A big part of selling a videogame is the cover art. Some are amazing, while others are definitely something to be desired. Here are the 20 worst videogame covers of all time. [dorkly]

There are some games out there that people have played for so long, that they don't realize some of the rules they're using aren't officially rules at all. However, these rules do tend to make THE GAME more fun. Case in point... [cracked]

When you're too lazy to walk to your xbox to switch out the game disc, you build a 32 disc changing carousel out of LEGOs. Me... I just use the force. [geekologie]

Someone finally did it. They made a real-life fire-breathing Super Mario Bros. Piranha Plant. I'm not jumping over that. I value my sun-deprived skin. [geekosystem]

There've been many Legend of Zelda games throughout the franchise, but which are the best ones? Here are the top 10. [dorkly]

You know when you purchase a new laptop, you get it home, fire it up, and there's tons and tons of crap already installed on it? Yeah... people are actually paid to slow your laptop down, on purpose, with all that stuff. [howtogeek]

Want to feel really dumb and have your geek-cred go down -5 points? This 4 year old girl knows more about comics than you do. [blastr]
