Fans of the first-person shooter Destiny will appreciate this amazing prop replica of the Thorn gun used in the game. Designer Eric Newgard made a 3D mold and then cast the gun from 10 separate pieces so that the gears each spin individually. The assembled gun has been painted and weathered to look just like what you see in the game. It measures 12” long and 7” tall and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars ended a bit abruptly with many fans disappointed that all the story lines didn’t get a proper finish. Well, it looks like we are going to get a little closure thanks to four newly released, unfinished episodes of the series. You can watch A Death on Utapau, In Search of the Crystal, Crystal Crisis, and The Big Bang at StarWars.com right now.

They aren’t complete episodes, but they do fill things in, especially about how Anakin felt about Ahsoka leaving. Some concept art from the original story arc has also been posted.

Lastly, there’s a video with the team behind it all talking about how it’s not really over even though the series is done, with some characters popping back up in things like upcoming comic series.

Lindsey Loree decided to get creative when she proposed to her boyfriend. She challenged him to a game of Magic and then slipped a very special card into the deck. According to Lindsey:

Eric played Time Spiral, a card that forced me to shuffle my hand back into my library. Well, I cheated and placed the proposal card on my lap. No way was I going to risk not drawing it again. Fortunately, at this point I was able to play Mirari’s Wake, which doubled my mana, allowing me to play my expensive Sorcery. I laughed and said, “I think I just won the game” and threw the card down. Eric was perplexed for a moment, because he is a long time MtG player and knew all, and I mean ALL, the cards. It took him a moment to read the text, and another moment for realization to dawn upon him.

Eric said yes and Lindsey placed a Ring Pop on his finger to make it official. Nothing seals the deal like a Ring Pop.

Talk about some intense family drama: TVLine claims to have the character descriptions for AMC’s upcoming spinoff to The Walking Dead. While the latter focuses on a group of strangers coming together to survive the undead apocalypse, this spinoff will instead focus on two close-knit families as they struggle to overcome the zombies hordes. Oh, yeah, and the families are led by a couple of single parents and Andrea. No, no, not that Andrea. A different one.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity features a team of deadly assassins who take out all the bad guys. In this version, the assassins are cats. They’re all dressed up in their little hooded cloaks and they’re just as deadly as their human counterparts, but way more cute.

Considering I lost it so hard at the 30 second mark that I had to use my inhaler to be able to breathe, I have nothing but “YES” to say about this new version of The Walking Dead – Bad Lip Reading.

If you haven’t seen the first one, make sure you watch that as well. As for this one, just make sure you’re not eating or drinking unless you want to have an accident.

Also, yeah, I bought Carl Poppa.

You’ll see, after the break.

As much as we all love Netflix, there’s one time a month where they stab us in the heart. Sure, new titles get added on the first of the month, but they also remove content and this October 1st is looking pretty painful for some of us.

On quick review, I’m losing Battlestar Galactica, Ghostbusters Law & Order, and Law & Order: SVU. That’s…painful. Not my Lennie and Benson. Noooooo.

They’re also removing Mean Girls, and Center Stage (for those of you who love a good guilty pleasure dance movie).

On the plus side, they’re adding GalaxyQuest.

Check out the full list of additions and removals after the break.

In the mood for some fun sci-fi action? Well, then you’ll probably dig this new 10-minute short by David Weinstein, titled “Envoy.” It feels like a modern repackaging of both E.T. and Iron Giant (albeit with less Vin Diesel–I still think Iron Giant was his greatest role ever!), but it’s an enjoyable video that’s well worth watching all the way through.
