The Lone Wanderer in Brickville [Fallout 3]

The Lone Wanderer in Brickville [Fallout 3]
With all the attention Borderlands is getting, I feel it’s important to remember that other futuristic game with important vaults: Fallout 3. And what better way to remember anything than with LEGO? And, of course, the best thing to immortalize in brick from from Fallout 3?

More Fighting! More Foraging! More Elder Scrolls!

More Fighting! More Foraging! More Elder Scrolls!
This has to be the best news I’ve heard all week: a new Elder Scrolls game has been sort-of confirmed, finally. Time to wrap up those last few quests in Oblivion, folks. It only took, what, a year or three to finish that one?

World’s Largest LEGO Mario Up for Auction: Its’a Huge

World’s Largest LEGO Mario Up for Auction: Its’a Huge
This unbelievable bit of geek art is purportedly the largest LEGO block statue of Mario ever created. It sure looks like it to me. And it’s definitely WAY bigger than this one. The mammoth LEGO Mario was created by Dirk VH, and is made up of over 40,000 individually placed bricks.

Sega Zippo Lighters: Hey Man, Your Console is on Fire!

Sega Zippo Lighters: Hey Man, Your Console is on Fire!
Now I’m not a smoker, but the fact that these Zippo cigarette lighters look like retro Sega consoles might be enough to get me to start. Actually, no. But they might be enough to convince be to buy a lighter that looks like a retro Sega console anyway.

Surfacescape Redefines Tabletop Gaming

Surfacescape Redefines Tabletop Gaming
Anything that starts out of a suggestion from Penny-Arcade’s Mike Krahulik & Jerry Holkins – aka Gabe & Tycho – is bound to be geeky, and this one is no exception. The duo visited the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University and ended up chatting with a bunch of students that were using a Surface, Microsoft’s multitouch wonder computer.

Behind the Scenes of a Star Wars Psa Reveals C-3PO & R2-D2′S Secret

Behind the Scenes of a Star Wars Psa Reveals C-3PO & R2-D2′S Secret
I headed to the Star Wars blog after reading about the impressive Tauntaun wedding cake, but I became more interested at this old footage. It’s a clip showing a bit of behind-the-scenes of a Public Service Announcement released in 1977, shortly after A New Hope came out.

Moto G4 Mac Mod Speeds Down the Road

Moto G4 Mac Mod Speeds Down the Road
Now in all my research of the old Apple PowerMac G4, I can’t find anything in the spec sheets that mention a 49cc, 2-stroke petrol engine. I must have missed that part somewhere. As a matter of fact, this is the first Mac I’ve ever seen that measures its speed in MPH, not MHz.

Xbox Aquarium Casemod: Swimming With the Fishes

Xbox Aquarium Casemod: Swimming With the Fishes
So you’ve got an old Xbox lying around the house and you don’t know what to do with it? Why not do like this guy did and float it in your fish tank? Yep, thanks to the non-conductive cooling properties of mineral oil, this submerged Xbox system still works as well as it did the day it shipped from Microsoft.

Pink HD Camcorder: Because Girls Like Digital Video Too

Pink HD Camcorder: Because Girls Like Digital Video Too
More and more gadgets are starting to turn up in colors besides basic black, white or grey. It was only a matter of time before the good old camcorder got a colorful makeover – in pink. This cheery pink digital camcorder is perfect for girls (and very confident men) who want to shoot video and are sick of the same old, same old.

Harop Loitering Munition: a Spy Drone With Suicidal Tendencies

Harop Loitering Munition: a Spy Drone With Suicidal Tendencies
It may not have a classy or intimidating name, but I’m sure that robots speak of the HAROP loitering munition with great respect – or perhaps fear –  when they… get together for, um, poker night.

Keeping Things Simple With an 8-Bit Wedding

Keeping Things Simple With an 8-Bit Wedding
How can you liven up the traditional wedding? True quirkiness goes beyond interesting dresses and video game cakes, as one California couple proved with their 8-bit DIY wedding theme. Forget a regular ol’ bouquet. Let’s get pixelated. When a graphic designer and a video game programmer get married, this is what happens: a profusion of pixels.

Gather the Gang, It’S Time for a Windows 7 Torrenting Party!

Gather the Gang, It’S Time for a Windows 7 Torrenting Party!
Microsoft’s weird-ass marketing campaign telling people to hold Windows 7 parties was asking for a parody, and the folks at Funny or Die are happy to oblige. Here’s a party that millions of pirates will surely be having: a Windows 7 torrenting party!
