Are You Ready? - Steam Summer Sale 2016

Holy carp, this video is amazing. Ser Davos as PayPal couldn't be more fitting. It's like he knows you're making mistakes but in the end is pretty much powerless to stop them. The best he can do is just offer his support. Good on you Onion Knight. I swear GRRM better not kill you off.

Watermelon Links

This Is Exactly The Truck You’d Drive To Save Your Heroin Addict Friend If You Were Also A Heroin Addict And Had A Shit Ton Of Guns With You. Holy crap, look at these rednecks. Yesterday, this truck was stopped in the Holland tunnel by police because it had a cracked windshield and looked just a mite bit suspicious. Turns out there were “multiple loaded guns, knives and ballistic vests” inside and a crew of self styled vigilantes on a rescue mission to save a teenage girl from a drug den.

First off, thank goodness the cops stopped them. There's zero way this wouldn't have ended without some innocent bystander getting shot. Second, cops can pull you over for a cracked windshield? What is this Soviet Russia?

Indie Wrestlers Find Both Struggles And Triumphs On The Independent Scene. Great article on the increasingly popular independent wrestling scene in the states. I don't know much about these millenial hipsters but as long as they like PBR and Wrestling they can't be all that bad.

Turn A Watermelon Into A Keg With A Watermelon Tap. Oh man, I would get sooooo drunk off this thing. I mean, I guess you don't have to put booze in your watermelon keg but WHY WOULDN'T YOU!?!?

Super Mario Maker In Real Life

Youtuber MyNameIsBanks made this Super Mario Maker fan film, or is it more of a fake trailer? Lets say it's a trailer to a fan film. Either way it's impressive. Whenever I see a youtube film like this I'm blown away at what you can do with computers these days. 30 years ago you couldn't pull off these special effects with a $50 dollar budget. We're all going to be living in the matrix in like 20 more years.

New Westworld Trailer

While everyone was watching basketball or wrestling last night (according to my twitter) HBO released a new trailer for their adaption of the Sci-Fi classic(?) Westworld. Westworld is on of those movies that I know I've seen but I don't really remember anything about it. I'm far more familiar with the homages the Simpsons, Red Dwarf and Star Trek TNG played to it. Frankly every episode of Star Trek TNG where something goes wrong in the holodeck owes some credit to Westworld. The trailer looks really cool BUT it looks like it has a pretty high chance of becoming a rambling mess like Lost.

Prove me wrong JJ.

Secretly Links

LEGO's BATMAN (Voice) To Host Syfy's 3-Day Live Comic-Con Coverage. Holy balls, that is one tortured title. What they mean to say is Will Arnett is going to host a show from San Diego Comic-Con for the SyFy network. I could care less about Arnett's participation, I'm just glad that someone network is doing a show from SDCC this year. Yeah, in the time it took me to write that last sentence I realized that it will probably cover Movies and TV exclusively but hey, something is better than nothing. I really miss G4's coverage of SDCC. The last two years they were still in business they did a great job. I remember one year I watched it sick from the couch and it was so fantastic. RIP G4.

Oh yeah, I saw the Angry Birds movie the other day with my son and they had the trailer for The Lego Batman Movie and it was pretty awesome. I'm really looking forward to it. Also Angry Birds was WAY better than it had any right to be. It's wasn't on Pixar's level or anything but what should have been complete crap was actually sort of enjoyable.

Say goodbye to the way the game console market works. Here's a nice think piece on just what the Xbox Scorpio and PS4.5 mean to the console market. What's happening right now is a thousand times more interesting than a couple years ago when the Xbox One and PS4 were announced. We're not just looking at new consoles with new bells and whistles we're looking a change in the way they're made, marketed and sold. Yes, you've always been able to pay a bit more for a console and get a "nicer" experience. A bigger HD, extra controller, maybe a game or two thrown it, but you've never been able to buy two consoles with vastly different specs that play the same games.

I'm going to take a shot a couple long form articles on this next week. There's so much to digest, even as someone that's kind of given up on consoles this E3 was really, really interesting.

The Buick Cascada Is A Lesson In How Much New Cars Suck For Small People. I noticed this trend the other day when I saw my mother-in law driving her Ford Escape. She looked like a child in it. I can't believe she can even see over the dash. I wanted to get a stack of books for her to sit on. Car makers need to take note, the second you can't comfortably rest your arm in the open window you've ruined the car.

There’s a shirt that lets you secretly masturbate anywhere. This is a terrible, terrible idea.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, E3 Trailer

MOAR VIDEO GAME TRAILERS! This trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (ie. Zelda #22, the quest for more money) looks pretty dope. It's not Skyrim or anything (more on that later) but graphically its a big upgrade from the last Zelda game I played. It looks like there's going to be a lot non-linear, sandbox style of gameplay, which could be a lot of fun. Also the big news here is that there's going to be voice acting! I'm sure plenty of monocle's dropped at Nintendo when the dev team first proposed that.

Interesting thing here is that Nintendo is planning on releasing this for both the WiiU and they're upcoming NX. Sounds like they're going to be doing the same high-low resolution two step Sony and Microsoft are planning. Like I said yesterday, I'm really interested in where this will go. Will early adopters to the new systems regret spending a premium only to play the same games everyone else is playing? Will the current generation of consoles just get tossed aside because they can't keep up with the pack? Will having more tiered pricing options bring more people into console gaming? I don't know, I'm not particularly interested in buying a PS4.5 or Xbox 1.360 or anything but I am super interested to see what this means to the industry. Seems like everyone is betting a lot of cash on 4K and VR gaming.

Battlefield 1 Official Gameplay Trailer

Hey kids, this new Battlefield 1 looks pretty awesome. I'm not sure if there's anything I don't like about it. Old timey tanks, sub machine guns on motorcycles, bi-planes vs tri-planes, blimps exploding, it all looks good. It's supposed to support 64 man battles, I'm hoping that it will be cross platform compatible. I know this trailer is all about the Xbox One but most everything I've seen from E3 this year touts multiplayer compatibility between Xbox and PC. Of course they also have big old Window 10 logos on everything so I'm thinking I'm going to have to bite the bullet and upgrade to that sooner or later. Why not, I mean I've been looking for an excuse to buy a new printer and scanner and web cam and all that other stuff I'll probably find out aren't compatible. YAY!
