Nerd Rage

I don't get mad over my fiction very often. (Okay, that's a lie.) I usually get angry about what I feel is pretty valid stuff. But twice (!!) already this week I've been presented with little details about upcoming Things I Care About (or Kinda Care About) that are making the nerd in me rage - and rage hard.

First: Star Trek.

potential spoilers for rumors surrounding Into Darkness )

Second, the first trailer for Ender's Game was finally released. While I have no intention of seeing this film any time soon (Orson Scott Card is not getting ANY financial support from me in the foreseeable future and possibly beyond that), I do still have fond memories of the first time I read the book and am vaguely curious about its translation to film, so I clicked on the trailer.

Ridiculous moment of Nerd Rage towards Iron Man 3. )

Okay so I was browing io9 today and I saw this and then I scrolled down to the bottom to the awesome Portal-themed office and naturally my brain decided HOW DO I ONE-UP THIS AMAZING PAINT JOB

The answer, obviously: theme an entire room to look like a test chamber.

Cut for musings and brainstorming and PERHAPS I WILL JUST BUY A HOUSE SO I CAN DO THIS )

Clearly there needs to be a geek-oriented room makeover show, like Room Crashers for Geeks. BECAUSE AWESOME.

And for my next trick I will do this same thing for Mass Effect because, uhm. Yes. Shepard's quarters on the Normandy would be super simple for a master bedroom, I mean come on.)

Two doctor's appointments, a haircut, and a trip to the fabric store later, and I am le tired folks.

But before I drag myself off to bed for the night, I wanted to post this link. It's mostly for future reference, but some of you lot are gamers and above the legal drinking age, so:

Six Video Game Cocktails

The Arkham City ones I've seen before, but the others! THE UNCHARTED ONE YES PLEASE.

...I wonder what a Resident Evil drink would be like? (I've seen movie-based ones with a blue or green twizzler wrapped inside for the T-Virus, which is cool, but they're not game-verse drinks)

(also shush I have not routed around to that fandom yet. Not wholly. Yet. Oh god help me. I've gone back to making crack theories and I really need to just make up my mind about making a comm to hold them all [I was right the last time I made a bunch of crack theories, but no one will ever know because I never wrote them down] and fhdsifhdsfjl)
arcanelegacy: (my dignity!)


Also I am caving into the whiny, nagging voice in my head and buying a 3DS and Resident Evil Mercenaries: 3D this weekend.
