Top 10 Most Annoying Enemies in Gaming

- 12-02-11Featured, Videogames Posted by Luke Gallagher

In every game there is that one NPC that the game developers create just to frustrate you and make you break perfectly good controllers (and possibly TVs). The reasoning behind their madness is unknown but it has been this way since the very first games back in the day. These enemies are the frustrating jerks who take all the cheap shots and break all the rules of civil gaming.

Nerd Art Stock Pile: Rudolph the Red Nosed Tonton, Animated Comic Covers, Doctor Who Bookshelf, Batman Simpsonized and MOAR

- 11-30-11Cool Stuff Posted by NickBungay

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Autobot anal, Star Whores, a bush shaved like the bat signal and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.

This is what the Empire Strikes Back would have looked like if it was released by stop motion animation pioneers Rankin Bass. Yea, it’s cute now, but that tauntaun is not going to live through the snowstorm.

On Mondays we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

This week’s edition: Creepy weird Batman and Superman statues, Terminator meets Toy Story, Steampunk Mac, Wonder Woman bathing suit, Super heroes need a shrink, Riddick 3 concept art, Two The Dark Knight Rises trailer parodies, Batman movie trifecta poster, 10 Deleted Scenes That Would’ve Ruined The Film, Achievement Unlocked, 10 Deleted Scenes That Would’ve Ruined The Film, Achievement Unlocked, Adam WarRock’s Browncoat’s Mixtape, Mordor - happiest place on Middle Earth, Iron Man arc reactor t-shirt, Spock in 13,824 LEGOs, 8-bit sand castle, R2-D2 lunchbox, What’s it like to date, Vader?, Harry Potter album covers, guillotine slinghot, the iron pedi-cab, Sam Eagle is Captain America, Lucas Lee is Captain America, Samus plays the Metroid theme on violin, Shatner leads Comic-Con in “KHAAAAAAAN!”

 

So, this is a real statue in Rome. Maybe this is commemorating when Clark revealed his secret identity to Batman. And Batman’s all like, “I already knew, bro, I’m Batman.” Either way, this is awesome, I wonder what other odd super hero statues are hidden around Europe. Is there a Batman and Robin, Jason Todd, pieta? (GeekTyrant)

Sexy Cosplay of The Week: Pixelninja

- 01-14-11Cosplay, Featured Posted by NickBungay

Friday, friday, friday, how much do we all love friday? A day where everyone gets off work at their respective times and get two days to relax and enjoy the weekend. What a better way to start your weekend with the weekly ‘Sexy Cosplay of The Week’ kick-starting your day. Each week around the world there’s a comic book or anime convention somewhere and that means people in costumes. Hundreds of hours planning, cutting and sewing leading up to two, sometimes three, days of nerd bliss. Where skin tight clothing won’t get you strange looks from the general public, it leads to “How did you put that together?” From beginners to experts, cosplay is for everyone and highlights the spirit of a person, their ingenuity. So without further delay let’s pull on our collectable shirts, throw on our passes and get on with this, shall we.

This week we speak the name of: Pixelninja

This week we go international with Jenni Källberg, otherwise known as Pixelninja to us non-cosplayers. Born in 1982 this resident of Stockholm, Sweden she is of both Swedish and Japanese descendants (how cool is that?). This woman isn’t just a cosplayer, she’s an engaged cosplayer. Just goes to show that not only does cosplaying increase self-esteem, it can land you a husband. Between cosplaying Pixelninja enjoys drawing, painting, and playing some good old video games. Her Favorite games are Final Fantasy, Zelda, Mario, Chrono Trigger and Super Metroid, making it easy to see why she loves details in her costumes. With all this its easy to see why Pixelninja has the accomplishments she does.

Pixelninja has been heavily involved in cosplay since 1999 and what a climb she has had the last 12 years. From the creation of 27 highly detailed costumes to her exposure in various magazines and media. If her name sounds familiar it should, Pixelninja created that extraordinary Samus Varia costume from last year. That’s right, all those heavy detail were hand crafted and the look amazing. Published in magazines like Nintendo Power, Electric Gaming Monthly and various websites around the world. Her cosplay also opened the doors to several job opportunities, touring with Nintendo of Europe as part of the Metroid Prime Trilogy in Germany. How awesome is that, being part of a media tour and your dressed as the star heroine.

If your heading overseas anytime soon to Sweden for any conventions keep your eye out for Pixelninja. Not flying anytime soon, then check out Pixelninja’s very own homepage or drop her a line on her contact page. Pixelninja’s costumes takes months to make and it’s worth every day. Any fortune she’s gained from her cosplay is very well deserved and well rewarded.

And so we come to another close on Nerdbastards ‘Sexy Cosplay of The Week’. With the weather recently giving us a blanket of snow hopefully this will make you forget about digging out your driveway. With that we thank you coming out to enjoy the show, make sure to tell your friends. Enjoy the week.

You have not obtained true pop culture status until an idiom (a statement that has meaning beyond the words themselves) has been named based on you. And it is about time that video games got their due!

Some of the ones listed below are pure gold, and I think it is up to us to make them as popular as we can – I for one will try to use at least one a day in conversation.

Thanks to Dorkly.com for the pics.

Alphabet Of Video Game Icons

alphabet

While we may have seen quite the amount of alphabet’s here on NerdBastards, this one puts nothing but a huge smile on my face. Francis Acupan drew some memorable icons that any gamer will recognize. Of course, from this picture, we can see which of the three console company he is a fan of but at least he gave some love to the other two. Check after the jump for a bigger image to see exactly what icon is what since he wrote descriptions of them on the image.

You ever wonder what the nameless faceless characters of the video game world think when the protagonist comes along heroically and breaks your window with a newspaper. Fun for you. Bad for the homeowner. (more…)
