So awesome (via Rock Paper Shotgun). Alternatively, this, which looks better, but is harder to make.
Some Serious Meta Going On...
I am currently watching the anime series Martian Successor Nadesico, which was the popular anime in Japan at one point, and the latest episode just threw one hell of a curveball. First, some background. In Nadesico, there’s an anime series called Gekiganger 3, which is your stereotypical shōnen mecha series. In the first few episodes, you discover that two of the pilots love the series to...

inky: nosmo: There’s a certain level of geeky connection that comes from naming a computer or a device. Some people seem to have naming schemes and consistent themes. I generally don’t. So Tumblr, what do you call your machines? If you insist. Be warned, I don’t follow any kind of naming “scheme”. I started, and then gave up. Desktop: Greasy Scotsman - because, when I...

Stardock fixes up its Bill of Rights after some criticisms. It’s very nice (via GamePolitics). Entertainingly, Jack Thompson seems to make an appearance in the comments, saying that it’s not real news.
Studio Ghibli/Level 5 Game: The Debut Trailer This is the game I mentioned earlier with the awesome box. Now, I think I may want this more.
Game for the PS3 and XBox360. About terrain deformation. Including a reverse gravity gun (fire at something, and it drags things to it), a gun that creates a six-foot-wide personnel-tracking boulder, and a grenade that sucks in anything not nailed down, makes the terrain act like jelly, then explodes very violently. In short… WAAAAANT.

Now, look at the URL in your browser address bar and note the number at the end of...
