Nerd News (Part 1): N7 Day, new Guild, S.H.I.E.L.D. characters and more

Vol. 3, Issue 39 (Part 1)

I posed a question on the C&CC Facebook page earlier this week about whether I should split this week's NN into two, since I was sitting on had two weeks' worth of information. The lovely people who replied (thank you, friends!) all thought it would be best to divide things up, so look below for TV, webseries, video game and science news (plus fun things). Check back tomorrow for movie and comic news (plus more art).

In TV news:

Here's a trailer for Primeval: New World:

In webseries news, mostly thanks to TGG:

This is surprisingly moving. (And now I really want to see a Who/Oz mash-up.)

Oh, the feels. (Thanks, Erin!)


Love these old-school-looking Star Trek posters.

Haha! (I really need to catch up on Mad Men. And by catch up, I mean watch all of.)

In game news, from TGG:

Related: (Awesome artist) Olly Moss was disappointed that the Borderlands 2 package design "lifted" from his designs. (Thanks, Shaun!)

How great are these Dragon Age-styled Mass Effect characters?

In SCIENCE! and tech news:

Muppets ABCs!

Here are two videos that make it apparent that I'm not yet ready to give up (on the hilarity of) the "Gangnam Style" trend.

Be sure to check out this audio mash-up, too. (Because it's not already stuck in your head for the rest of your life.) (Thanks, TGG!)

And finally, these illustrations for Harry Potter textbooks are so cool. I want a whole set (of both the books and the posters)!

Don't forget—check back tomorrow for more Nerd News!

  2. in case you needed a more politically slanted (yet still hilarious) video for gangnam style: http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6830834/mitt-romney-style-gangnam-style-parody

    i love the lower case (lesser known) muppets.

    i feel soooo bad for brian! i would love to see something where the doctor has to explain why he didn't bring them home safe.

    1. I totally agree on the Brian thing. He should visit him like he did Wilf. (Whom I miss, terribly.)

  3. I particularly love the Magical Theory textbook:)

    1. Same here! They're so mod. Totally unlike I'd expect to see at Hogwarts, but super cool nonetheless.

  4. Um, yeah, I need a set of the HP posters as well. And those Muppet ABC prints, totally need those for Lawson's "nook". :)
