    Another Dumb Internet Game

    It's about that time, folks.  Time for a really dumb internet game!  This one is called "Find the Invisible Cow" and basically it's Marco Polo with your mouse and computer screen, and some dude is saying "cow" with varying degrees of intensity, based on how close to the cow your mouse is.  Is it the best game of all-time?  No.  Is it kinda fun?  Yeah, it is.  Kinda.  So with that ringing endorsement go play "Find the Invisible Cow"!


    Tweet me your high scores - on second thought, don't.  I don't care.


    Love ya!

    VIDEO GAME MONTAGE!

    Hey all ya nerds, what's happening?  Do you by any chance have 20 minutes to spare today?  Oh, what's that?  You do?  Not too busy going outside and throwing the football around?  Well, that's good news, because the good people over at Slacktory have put together this pretty rad montage of video games and arcade games in film throughout the years, and it makes for a very entertaining viewing experience.  It's interesting to see the progression of video games throughout the years, and it's just plain old fun to either reminisce about the "good old days" of gaming, or wonder how in the heck anyone could play such primitive games!  I think I am going to send this article to my old Professor of Sociology at the University of Chippewa Falls, Professor Robert E. Thompsonreimer.  I think he will really get a kick outta this video.  In fact, if anyone reading this has a surrogate father in the form of a professor of sociology at a low-level university in the midwest, make their day and send them this video.  Thanks!

    This Is How You Protect Your Ass on Facebook

    "In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention).

    For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times…"


    Blah blah blah.  What is this junk everyone is posting to Facebook?  Oh yeah, really seems like a binding legal contract.  Really seems like this is a surefire way to not get your Facebook shit stolen and put into a movie or a play or something.  "What's that?  Spielberg used my status from three years ago as the basis of his new blockbuster movie!?  Damn it!"


    Yeah, no one cares about any of your comics or paintings, bro.   So instead of posting that long, boring, probably ineffective statement to your wall, why not share the season finale of Status Kill?  It's more fun and once someone sees you've shared it they won't DARE try and steal ANY of your personal details.  Why, you ask?  Here are some reasons:


    1) It shows that you have good taste.  Jesse Cowell's direction of the series, in my opinion, is simply masterful.  It's his complete vision, as he is also the creator and writer of the entire Status Kill series.  I love it when one man takes what is in his head and turns it into a reality.  


    2) Because I'm in it!  I make a quick cameo as The Mad Tagger, who I had played in THIS episode of Status Kill earlier in the season.  I also share the scene with my good buddy Chip!


    3) The special effects are so uber sweet it'll be a fabulous distraction to those attempting to steal your identity.  I know first hand that Chris Dimino spent a lot of time working on the special effects in Status Kill and they all came out amazing.  Seriously, you won't find better special effects than this on the entire interweb.  


    4) The acting prowess of Ayinde Howell, who plays Denton Sparks, a bad ass who will surely kick the crap out of anybody who steals anything from your Facebook account…if you post this to your wall.


    5) There are more reasons, but they're all encapsulated by this statement: STATUS KILL RULES.  Watch it.  You will not be disappointed.  Trust me.

    Greetings Nerds, let's get on with it already! This week in Nerd News:


    -I know, I know, I talk about Skyrim a lot. But, ERMAHGERD NEW SKYRIM DLC!  Scheduled for release on December 7th, Dragonborn is Skyrim’s third expansion to come out this year.  From the looks of it, every Dovahkiin’s wish of being able to ride dragons will finally be granted. However, no one knows whether or not you'll be able to actually control the dragon or if it will just be a cut scene between traveling. I’ll be sure to give you all the information once it finally hits Xbox Live.


    -For most Whovians, the first five episodes of Series 7 was hardly enough for us, so we scrounge for any piece of news we get our hands on until the Christmas special.  Luckily, we've got our hands on some exciting info:  Neil Gaiman is back on to write another episode about the Cybermen!  


    -Saga issue #7 comes out next Wednesday after a long two month hiatus! If you aren't following Brian K. Vaughan's newest romp, definitely be sure to check this one out. Like I said, it's only seven issues in and has been collected into a trade paperback form, so you really have no reason not to. While I was at NYCC I was able to attend the Saga Panel and they revealed the covers for the next few issues. And let me tell you, they were goregous!*


    That's all I have for you guys this week!  Be sure to check out Kristina's Answerly video later today for more nerdiness.

    *with tons of robot sex and gore, Saga is very NSFW.  Read at your own risk!

    Are you still recovering from post-NYCC depression?  Hopefully this will ease your minds.  This week in Nerd News:

    -What happens when a group of delinquents on community service get zapped by a freaky lightning storm?  They get super powers and kill their patrol officer, that's what!  Well, at least according to Misfits they do.  That's right, season 4 of Misfits has been announced!  We haven't got a set premiere date yet, but E4 have released a teaser trailer saying that Misfits is coming soon.  I wonder if they'll end up killing another patrol officer this season...

    -Remember a few weeks ago when I talk about Project Eternity?  Well, their Kickstarter ended a few days ago.  The verdict?  They freakin' blew their original goal out of the water by nearly 4 times the amount!  If you weren't able to back their project and still want a copy of the game, they'll be releasing it via Steam once they're finished. 

    -Bioshock Infinite has been announced for a while now, but the release date has been pushed back multiple times.  There has been little footage of the game and many gamers were worried that it was going to be pushed back again, until recently.  Irrational Games, the company who are responsible in making Bioshock Infinite, have announced two collectors edition of the game: the premium edition and the Ultimate Songbird edition.  In the premium edition buyers will get: a 3-inch keychain bottle of the Murder of Crows vigor, a 5x7 inch lithograph, a 25 millimeter Handyman miniature from the new Bioshock Infinite board game, an art book, and codes for downloadable content all for $79.99.  For $149.99 you get everything in the premium editions plus a 9.75 inch statue of the Songbird from the game, all in special packaging that looks like it's from the world of Bioshock Infinite.  You can pre-order your collectors edition here.

    Nerd News: New York Comic Con Edition

    New York Comic Con has come and gone, and I'm still recovering from lack of sleep, but that isn't going to stop me from telling you all of the exciting NYCC news!

    -The last we heard of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim was at San Diego's Comic Con this summer, until now. Del Toro was advised not to show footage ever again, but in his own words "I just don't give a f*ck!" And let me tell you, I'm glad he didn't give a f*ck, because it was awesome! He also announced a comic book tie-in that will give a little back story to Pacific Rim, which will be released a month before the movie. If you're a fan of Godzilla, Power Rangers, or just robots fighting monsters in general, you'll want to keep your eyes out for this one. 

    -Oh. My. Glob. I was able to get my hands on the new Adventure Time DS game, Adventure Time: Hey Ice King!  Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!, and it was great. From the looks of it, Adventure Time DS (is what I'll be calling it for short) will have a top down view for the map and a side scroller view for the combat part of the game, much like Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. If you're a huge Adventure Time fan like I am, you'll be excited that they're also releasing a Collectors Edition of the game that features a case that looks like the Enchiridion, an 8-bit map of the Land of Ooo, a DS stylist that is shaped like Finn's Sword, and a Book of Beasts, all for $10 extra. That's a lumpin' steal!

    -Continuing with the video game news, I also got my hands on the reboot of Tomb Raider.  What I was able to play was obviously an mid-production version of the game, so things seemed a little clunky.  Even the texture of the game, such as the leaves on trees, seemed to be a little blocky and pixelated.  With that said, the gameplay is what redeemed itself.  In this particular demo we found Lara escaping from some mysterious natives of the island she crash landed on and making her way down a mountain side and into a forest.  Most of what I played played out like Uncharted, prompting me to press buttons as Lara scrambled to catch herself from falling off a cliff.  I was also prompted to hunt for deer using a bow and arrow, but there were no examples of how combat would be played out against enemies. 

    For more NYCC coverage, be sure to come back on Wednesday for MegaBeth on the show floor!
