A Comprehensive Look At Video Game Easter Eggs [Video]

Some of my favorite video game memories involve discovering Easter eggs. This video covers a sampling of games from the ’70s to today, including everything from hidden messages to developers’ faces. I was happy to see a few of my favorites in here, too (Shifty Looking Cow, the hidden areas in Portal, Borderlands 2′s creeper cave, Whimsyshire…). One amendment, though: the Battlefield 4 Megalodon has indeed been found.

Things We Saw Today: One Girl’s Innovative Claw Machine Strategy

Story goes, she found a way into the machine and handed out toys to passers-by. Can’t blame her for thinking outside the box. Or, in this case, inside the box. (image credit Palmbchgrl; via The Daily Dot)



Farscape Creator Confirms That A Movie Script Is In The Works

Holy frell. Speaking on a panel at WonderCon yesterday, Farscape creator and Revolution showrunner Rockne S. O’Bannon confirmed that the script for a new Farscape feature is currently underway, with Brian Henson on board as well.

Let’s see how well I can type while crossing all my fingers.

And Now, A Few Pop Culture Favorites, Immortalized In Marshmallow Peeps

How better to commemorate pop culture and children’s books than with strangely resilient marshmallow confections? That’s Nerdalicious! pointed us in the direction of Sugar Swings (run by Michelle Clausen), where many a bunny has been transformed. Click through for the sugary goodness.


May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Behold! The 2014 Hugo Award Nominees!

Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Saga, and more high-quality SF/F than you can shake a stick at. That certainly covers a whole bunch of our post tags.

The Hugo Awards honor both pros and fans alike, and as usual, the 2014 nominees provide a superb checklist of things to read, watch, and enjoy. The winners will be announced on Sunday, August 17 at Loncon 3 (aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention).

The full list of nominees is available below. And should you need to gush about your favorites, mention absent works you feel are deserving (*cough* Janelle Monae’s The Electric Lady for Best Related Work *cough*), or…ah…have a measured discussion about nominees you may object to, the comments are here for your disposal.

Straight From WonderCon, Here’s A Space-Battling New Clip From Star Wars Rebels

I’m not sure which bit I like better: Hera’s game face (which is serious business), or the little arms that come out of Chopper’s head. They’re like the astromech droid equivalent of arguing in all caps.

Your Saturday Project: Identify The Mystery Object In This Apparent Photo Of The Star Wars: Episode VII Set

The picture you see before you comes from The National, a daily newspaper published in Abu Dhabi. The photographer, Mona Al Marzooqi, reportedly captured it near “a large encampment of tents” deep in the desert, surrounding what appeared to be part of a set.

Now, last week, The Hollywood Reporter stated that they were pretty sure Abu Dhabi was going to be the new home of Tatooine, so this isn’t the first time we’re hearing about this location. According to The National, their sources within the Abu Dhabi film industry say that crew members have already been hired for the shoot. However, local residents don’t seem to know about it, and Disney, of course, isn’t saying anything. It is entirely possible that this picture has nothing to do with Star Wars whatsoever. Is that going to stop fans from speculating on what the object might be? Of course not!
