The 100 Best Links

The 100 Best Video Games of All Time. It's pretty much impossible to put together a definitive list of the best video games ever, but this one isn't too bad. I like that instead of ranking them 1-100 they just go by the dates they were published. My only real big complaint is that they snubbed Red Dead Redemption which is still my favorite game of all time (sorry Ultima IV).

Real Names in Games Mean More Money for the NCAA, Executive Argued. In my mind this is a big story that's getting very little attention. Former UCLA star Ed O'Bannon and a handful of other former student athletes are suing the NCAA for improperly licensing the names, images and likenesses of former D-I football and men's basketball players in various commercial ventures without the players' permission and without providing them compensation. Yeah, I copied and pasted most of that. The gist of it is that the NCAA makes a ton of cash from companies like EA who put the likeness of the athlete's into their videogames. I'm shocked it's taken us 20 years of college sports video games to get here and I hope in the end the players get their fair share.

Cowboys & Aliens Comic Writer Fred Van Lente Live-Tweets First Viewing of the Movie. Spoiler Alert, the movie turns out so boring he doesn't have much to say. Still an interesting little anecdote.

26 Examples Proving Spider-Meme Is The Best Meme. My son has yet to get into Spider-Man cartoons. We watched one a couple weeks ago and he was pretty ambivalent towards it. He's still all Thomas the Tank Engine and Wonderpets. This morning he did ask for "robots" so I put on an episode of Transformers. If he really likes it maybe in a week or two I'll write up a big review for seasons one and two of the original series.

He was probably asking for Aquabots.
