Nerd News: Childhood games, Doctor Who, Star Wars art and more

 Vol. 1. Issue 12

I think I've posted at least one of these amazing Star Wars Steampunk illustrations on my other blog in the past, but when I ran across them this week, I knew I had to post them again.
I think the Ackbar one's my favorite. He's just so cute with those big ol' eyes. The stories—and altered names—that go along with each image are great, too.

While we're on the subject of Star Wars art:
Love these.

And one more Star Wars item for the fans: 11 best commercials featuring Darth Vader. The Tom Tom GPS one is by far my favorite. "Round-abound" slays me, every time.

In movie news:
This mash-up trailer of Scott Pilgrim and Avatar: The Last Airbender is—to paraphrase Colt's words—OMG epic.

Interested in some Doctor Who news?
While we're talking Doctor, I ran across Brandon Schaefer's art and found this:
All his other work is fantastic too. I love the mod feel of it all.

I had an urge to play Oregon Trail earlier this week, and when I Googled it, imagine my excitement when I found Virtual Apple—an online warehouse of Apple and Apple II games you can play online. The excitement quelled a little before my first party member got dysentery (I guess I'm used to more advanced games these days), but still. The memories!

Finally, if you need some afternoon amusement, check out this listing of 24 gag reels from classic scifi TV shows. The Stargate ones made me giggle and hearing Deanna Troi say the f-word made me nearly fall out of my chair.
