Six video game couples that have stuck with me over the years, each representing a different sort of love.
The Mary Sue And ThinkGeek Want To Make Your Life More Awesome With A Contest
by Jill Pantozzi | 1:56 pm, November 27th, 2012
Who doesn’t love a good contest? Especially one that could put some seriously cool nerd items in your hand. Check out what ThinkGeek has lined up for a few special winners!
With a traditional costume, you take the way you look regularly and cover it up with clothing, masks, and makeup. The Mega Stomp Panic creates a costume using SOUND only. The sounds from the Mega Stomp are synchronized to your steps and stomps, giving the illusion that you are generating them yourself. See it in action!
Then, TWO runners-up will get to live out their dream of being Matt Smith’s Doctor with a Sonic Screwdriver Programmable TV Remote!
This Mark VII Sonic Screwdriver is specially created for Earth use. It’s been simplified so as not to cause danger to human operators, while still being an extremely powerful tool in the wrangling of entertainment electronics. Using simple and intuitive movements you will be able to use the Sonic Screwdriver to control your devices just like The Doctor. Rotate clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the volume on your iPod dock; flick the Sonic Screwdriver up and down to change TV channels or navigate the program guide; and even open your DVD tray by pulling back on the Sonic Screwdriver. With 13 gestures and 3 memory banks, you can store up to 39 remote control codes on the Sonic Screwdriver: plenty to control all of your Earth-based entertainment equipment. In Control Mode, each gesture triggers a classic Sonic Screwdriver sound effect and the tip illuminates with a bright green light. (There’s also a Quiet Mode if you’re stealthy.) And because The Doctor doesn’t let just anyone use his stuff, there’s a Lock Code that allows you to ensure that it’s yours… ALL YOURS.
How do you win? Well first, you’ll need a Twitter account. Second, you’ll want to follow both The Mary Sue and ThinkGeek. These buttons will help you do that.
