Kelsey Kronmiller is a gamer who also happens to love her pet fish. So, she took it upon herself to construct an epic, gaming-themed fish tank that we first spotted in 2014.

Now we have a lot more information about how it was made.

The shiniest ship in the ‘Verse is returning to the skies for Firefly Online. We’ve already seen a clip of Sean Maher reprising his role as Dr. Simon Tam as well as Alan Tudyk as Wash, but the latest clip features Captain Tightpants himself (Nathan Fillion) waxing poetic about his days on the show and how happy he is to be stepping back into the role. A second clip has voice director Andrea Romano sharing her excitement about being able to work with the cast.

my_talking_elcor_plush_toy_mass_effect_by_sanshee_1-620x789

In case you were wondering, April Fools’ Day was weeks ago—the Talking Elcor Plush actually exists.

If you are unfamiliar with the Mass Effect universe, the Elcor are a massive, generally friendly species found on the Citadel. They are described as being “deliberate” and “conservative” with a monotone voice that appears to lack emotion. Because of this, they tend to describe what would otherwise be expressed with tone and body language.

As the product page states:

“My Talking Elcor voices a love greater than the gravity of Dekuuna and is scientifically engineered for maximum huggability and affection.”

Find out what Elcor says and see the plush in action after the break…

The Star Wars Battlefront game panel is happening at Star Wars Celebration and the new trailer just dropped. It’s frickin’ gorgeous, though the trailer doesn’t contain any actual gameplay.

Still, I’m definitely planning to pick it up when it goes on sale November 17th on PS4, PC and Xbox One.

Check it out after the break.

This isn’t the first Zelda-themed reworking of the Game Of Thrones intro, but it might be the best. This time, the focus is on the Link to the Past world map.

Maybe HBO should talk to Nintendo about making that live action version of Zelda that everyone wants.

What you’re looking at is the ultimate classic arcade game mashup. Pacapong combines Pac-Man, Pong, and Space Invaders into a free, 2-player game. The Pong paddles can sling Pac-Man through the maze and also shoot down the Space Invaders. Oh, and Donkey Kong also makes an appearance trying to kill you with barrels.

It’s all the crazy work of Dick Poelen who submitted it for a developer challenge on Ludum Dare. You can play it on Windows, OSX, or Linux.

See how the game works in the video after the break.
