That’s Pretty Neat #1: “Pilot”
Iâ€™ll be honest, I browse the internet… A LOT. Â I also enjoy video games (which may explain why I write for a gaming website), so there are dozens of times Iâ€™ll run across something interesting that makes me think one thing: Â â€œHuh… thatâ€™s pretty neat.â€
So here I am, with a ludicrously awesome proposal; Iâ€™ll compile all of this neat stuff on a weekly basis and show it off in one smorgasbord of neatness, specifically for all those lovers of neat video game stuff. Â And thereâ€™s pretty much no backing down, now. Â I already put a â€œ#1â€ by the title and creatively named it “Pilot” (I know it’s not a television show, shut up), so if I donâ€™t continue posting these Iâ€™m going to look like a real jerk. Â Hope you guys think this stuff is… uh, whatâ€™s the word…
On a Scale of 1-10, His Scaling is a 10
Assassinâ€™s Creed is infamous for giving the protagonist incredible skill at climbing walls. Â Thatâ€™s not really realistic though – nobody would ever actually scale a building, would they?
Well, reddit user liamdroid proved us all very wrong with his post in which he stated â€œI found this guy climbing my work building today.â€
Sorry Hitchcock, This is the BEST Psycho
I talked about this Borderlands 2 short film that delves into Krieg’s love life the other day, but I just canâ€™t get over how awesome it is. Â It’s no surprise, I can sort of relate to the whole â€˜misunderstood guy who canâ€™t get an attractive girlâ€™ thing. Â Though to be fair, Iâ€™m probably slightly less awkward around girls than Krieg.
What is Columbia, If Not Another LEGO Set for Another Time?
This flickr user, Cool Whip, is a pretty awesome guy. Â Not only was he able to secure that sweet and delicious username, but he also constructed a LEGO version of the city of Columbia from BioShock Infinite. Â It comes complete with Booker DeWitt, a Handyman, some Comstock propaganda, and a mobilized patriot.
Not Included; interdimensional tears.
Even GLaDOS Would Be Proud of This Living Chamber
If youâ€™ve ever wanted to live like a Test Subject, have I got a treat for you. Â This Portal-themed room, designed from scratch by an accountant-by-day, nerd-by-night gal named Lauren, is ridiculous. Â And I want to sleep there. Â Preferably without GLaDOS, though.
You can check out her full website on the project here, and look at a few neat pictures below.
Humble Your Bundle
Who can ever forget the lovable wizards at humblebundle.com? Â Aside from having their eighth true Humble Bundle (which includes *deep breath* Little Inferno, Awesomenauts, Capsized, Thomas Was Alone, Dear Esther, Hotline Miami, and Proteus for a price that you determine), theyâ€™ve also paired up with Telltale Games to give us… well, you can go check out the deal for yourself. Â Iâ€™m sick of switching between tabs to look at all the games available.
I guess thatâ€™s really all the neat stuff I could find. Â But, in all honesty, what were you expecting for a pilot? Â I canâ€™t just sit at my computer all day and find interesting stuff for you to look at, I have a life…
Okay, you called my bluff. Â I donâ€™t.
