How does a LEGO-loving geek propose to his special lady? Take a hint from this guy. Filmmaker Walt Thompson from Fire Pit Pictures knows how to make a woman say “yes.” He went well beyond the call of duty and makes the rest of us look bad.
We’ve seen many Minecraft builders go to great lengths for their creations, but the stop-motion specialists MinecraftA2Z showed their dedication to their craft through destruction. Their latest short sees their server reduced to virtual rubble by a gigantic Notch.
I’ve always wanted to try and build that Ultimate LEGO Millennium Falcon kit, but just never had the time or patience to do it. Never mind the fact that the kit is so collectible, that it sells for over $2,000 these days.
One late night, while he was walking home, David Franklin passed by a dark alley and was accosted by three thugs. They tackled him and held him down. Then the leader of the group held him up against a wall with his shirt collar, and with a cigarette-damaged voice and a beer-soaked breath, screamed in his face, “How can archetypal furniture facilitate the sharing of memories?”
As we already know, Minecraft is an amazing tool for building intricate worlds and other fun digital playthings. The latest creation… Minecraft Tetris. But not just any old Tetris, this is the classic greyscale Nintendo Game Boy version many of us grew up with.
World 1-1 in Super Mario Bros. has to be the most recognizable starting level in video game history. It’s a great level too, from a gameplay standpoint. It has several layers – it serves as a tutorial, but also teaches more advanced tricks and even rewards the persistent (or lucky) player with its secrets.
Despite the frustration factor, I’ve always enjoyed Tetris. Sure, it’s old-school, but the general puzzle gameplay mechanic led to countless contemporary games, including the insanely popular Bejeweled franchise. So it’s hard for me to pass up a good Tetris post.
The thing about stop-motion videos is that they constantly remind us how time-consuming they must have been to make. Take this video by YouTube user BananaNeil for example, where he plays a game of Tetris using the tiles of Rubik’s Cubes as pixels.
I’m always amazed by all of the crazy things that people have been able to do with the primitive forms in the game Minecraft. Remember the time that Minecrafta2z made a version of Pac-Man in the Minecraft engine?
We really like LEGO around here and we have seen more than a few stop motion LEGO videos over the years. My favorite video was the LEGO lumberjacks fighting dragons to the metal sound track. A new stop motion video has turned up that is geeky and is about as NSFW as a LEGO video can get.
One of the geeky things I’d like to see before I die is a LEGO electronics set that can easily be assembled and taken apart to become different devices. One minute it’s an mp3 player, the next it’s a projector.
After human Tetris, human Pong, and human Space Invaders, Guillaume Reymond tackles human Pac-Man. It took 111 people over 4 hours to create this stop-motion video.
This is part of Reymond’s ongoing Game Over Project and it was shot in a theater in Basel, Switzerland at the end of August 2010.
The Swedish band Rymdreglage’s music video ‘8-bit trip’ is a stop-motion homage to retro Nintendo video games created using only LEGO bricks.
The video took over 1,500 hours to complete, since each LEGO-constructed character needed to be moved around individually, then photographed.
