This Week in Video Games 10-06

I know this column is titled “This Week in Video Games,” even though it’ll be on a bi-weekly basis. Unfortunately, “These Past Two Weeks in Video Games” doesn’t have much of a ring to it; you’ll just have to deal with it until we come up with something better. This week, we take a look at the launch of GTA Online (is it running yet?), the Battlefield 4 beta launches, and Valve unveils its new hardware, and maybe even confirms a certain game we’ve all been waiting for?

Check out all of your gaming news AFTER THE JUMP!

At first glance, I thought this was a Rancor balloon, but then I noticed those, well, they look like breasts hanging from its side and grew concerned. Seriously, what the fuck is this?!  [ObviousWinner]

Hey, sometimes you gotta make repairs with the parts you find, and for this little R2 that happened to be colorful LEGOs. [NerdApproved]

While I know I’ll be making reservations at this video-game themed restaurant and bar as soon as humanly possibly, they should realize true gamers never leave their gaming dens. Even for food. No need, they got a Pizza Hut app right on their XBOX dashboard. [Geekologie]

Continuing the trend of How BLANK Eat Their Food, we have How Star Wars Characters Eat Their Food. And as funny as this is, I hope this means this meme is coming to an end. [GAS]

Asslevania: Chorus of Flatulence. Yup. This is pretty much what you’ve guessed it is. [Dorkly]

And lastly, because no one’s day is complete without a 30-minute Pokemon ballet performance, here’s a 30-minute Pokemon ballet performance. [Geekologie]

- 11-29-12Cool Stuff Posted by NickBungay

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!

Oh look, a Disney/Star Wars mash-up… This one by Xum Yukinori, features Darkwing Duck joining the dark side of the force, which appears to be more open to purple instead of the customary black. [Geek Tyrant]

Whether you want to cosplay as the Batman/Bane amalgamation known as “Batbane” or add some panache to your gimp costume, this latex face covering is the one for you.

Designed by crafty Etsy user Ministry of Masks, this mask can be yours for $163. Warning: This will not treat your sleep apnea. [Fashionably Geek]

A woman painted her preg-bell-bell to look like a Pokeball and then birthed a Pikachu (not a real one, that would be horrifying). Three cheers for starting the geekization process early. [Geekologie]

Remember when the most annoying side effect of our descent into techno-reliance was douchebags who text-walked into you and bluetooth users who look like Rhythm Nation tour castoffs that were indistinguishable from twitchy sidewalk Jesus talkers? We’re goona file that under “Good Old Days” because “Augmented Reality” is the Philip K. Dickian phrase that keeps popping up and Google — the masters of giving us things we aren’t looking for —  decided that we need to pretend that we’re walking through a World of Warcraft-like MMORPG with the aid of our Android phone.

The game is called Ingress, the trailer is above, and there is no word if you will one day be able to use it with your Google Internet Glasses, though I personally can’t imagine that that won’t be a thing and that we won’t have to deal with people running into traffic chasing after a fleeing pedestrian that may also be a necromancer or a mystical troll. Ah well, natural selection. No word on a release date but I didn’t really try hard to find one. Via Geekologie

Oh SNL, why must you suck so hard in-between the bi-monthly Stefon bits? On Saturday, the Governor of my state (Chris Christie) embarrassed himself, but not nearly as much as Jeremy Renner, who let himself star in a sketch lampooning The Avengers. Yes, Hawkeye’s quiver was empty and his worthlessness was even more pronounced in a sketch that seemed like an excuse to trot out a Hulk costume that seemed to have claws (are we reusing a giant alligator costume from the Farley era?) and the remnants of the Party City post-Halloween clearance bin.

Is this the best that the SNL writers can do? Does SNL even have writers anymore? I saw the sin against humanity that was “The Californians”, so I’m not entirely sure. Also, Keenan Thompson is awful on SNL, isn’t it time that we give Kel Mitchel a shot?

Alright, enough shenanigans. The way this works is, I’m supposed to tell you about some nerdy clothes to put on your body and then I’m supposed to seamlessly glide into a whorish bit of self-promotion for our tee shirts, so above is a Joker sorta-snuggie from SuperHeroStuff. Does the design make Snuggies and pseudo-Snuggies slightly less sad? Maybe a little.

Alright, onto a group of tee shirts I would buy if these companies ever respected the style tendencies of bitch-tit havers who like their KFC. In order they are: the shirt I want to be buried in (many years from now), the Dinosaur I want to kill, stuff, and put in my Batcave, and an old school Green Lantern tee, cause I’m an OG.

Don’t forget about our Nerd Bastards’ tees, available at Split Reason! (Pretty fucking seamless, eh?)
