The Legend of Zelda has always been Link’s story. Sure, Ganon might be raising a dark army, and Zelda may be the magical princess, but it’s a boy’s journey. Only he can wield the Master Sword, yada, yada, yada. Hyrule Warriors feels less about Link and more about, well, whoever you want.

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

What makes Mario think it's OK to just punch his friends in the face? In fact, everything he does somehow needs to be violent, so let's revisit Smash Bros. with Dorkly and see if Nintendo's mascots can find a better way for them to have a smashing good time. (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

Stranger in a Strange Land: A My Little Pony Virgin Goes to a Brony Convention - Everypony have fun tonight!

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

Confession: I have not watched My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But I heard there was a convention called DerpyCon South in town, and with a name like that, I had to go. It turned out the be a brony convention, and I immediately decided that trial by fire was clearly the most logical way to introduce myself to the fandom.

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

There have been a few trailers out for Alien: Isolation, the new horror game that hits shelves on October 7th, and they've all been errifying. This latest in-game footage will get your heart pumping within seconds and, honestly, I don't know how I'm going to play this game other than with the brightness cranked way up on my screen at noon in my fully-lit apartment. Ack.

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

So you know how every once in a while Netflix likes to switch out the movies and TV shows it currently offers you on Instant Watch with different movies and TV shows? Well... the good news is we're getting Gilmore Girls! The bad news is that Rory and Lorelei's adorably fast-paced antics come at a terrible, terrible cost to humanity.

Ellen Page and Kate Mara Are The True Detectives We Deserve In This Parody - But not the ones we're actually getting, of course.

Is it wrong that I would rather watch a whole season of Tiny Detective than a single episode of Vince Vaughn in actual True Detective?

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

If you've made it to level 20 in Destiny, chances are you're stuck grinding for engrams in the hopes that you'll nab some sweet Legendary gear. Or you could just say screw it, and dance your way across the solar system like this one intrepid Guardian. Now that, friends, is truly legendary.

Today We Learned: Black Widow Almost Got a Movie Before Iron Man - We only act like we know everything.

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

As you all know (because it's kind of a sticking point for us), Marvel has yet to make a movie within their cinematic universe that features a female hero at the helm. But back before they started making waves with Iron Man, there was serious talk of putting out a Black Widow film in 2004—and it involved the screenwriter for the first two X-Men films.

Star Wars Version Of Sia’s “Chandelier” Video Is an Actual Masterpiece - I wanna feel the fuzz.

6 days agoOdd : Geekosystem

The rest of the Internet is calling "Bandolier" a parody of Sia's most recent music video, but I see it more as an homage. Seriously, the Leia cosplayer is acing every single one of those moves straight from the original, and don't even get me started on the Chewbacca-loving lyrics. This is some straight up art, is my point. Just try to look away, I dare you.
