It looks like Tumblr user Lorenzo is going to win the “good big brother” award today: he recently helped his six-year-old little sister learn about some classic video game characters from Nintendo’s popular Smash Bros. series. Lorenzo recorded his sister’s answers, and while they weren’t exactly spot-on, they were at least pretty funny and adorably cute. Oh, and her answer for Pac-Man is definitely the best.

Pandorica-Yahtzee-2

Do you dare open the Pandorica? The BBC will be offering a special exclusive at San Diego Comic-Con that encourages you to do just that. They’ve come up with a Doctor Who spin on Yahtzee, and the classic game has never looked cooler. The Yahtzee cup is the Pandorica, and the dice are a striking transculent green.

You can grab it and control the universe for $20 at the BBC America booth (4129) as long as supplies last.

Check out another picture of the game after the break.

The AWP sniper’s Asiimov skin in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is pretty cool, but it’s a little expensive. Typically, it costs at least $30 if you’re not lucky. However, Gaboer did something better with his time and money—he went ahead and made a fairly elaborate paintball version.

Check out some pics of the conversion process after the break…

pokeshaming

We’ve seen kid shaming, pet shaming and even D20 shaming, but thanks to a new Tumblr meme, we have Pokémon shaming — which may be the best shaming ever.

Head after the break to see some great examples.

minecraft star wars

YouTuber Paradise Decay is working on a massive project: he’s making Star Wars: A New Hope in Minecraft. He’s got an hour and ten minutes completed so far, and that gave him more than enough footage to create a trailer. He’s making the fan film for fun and will make it freely available to everyone when the project’s done (hopefully sometime in 2015).

Keep in mind that you’ll need to have the film on hand in order to sync the sound—a decision that was made in order to avoid copyright issues.

He says the project has been three years in the making with some sets taking up to six months to build. He clearly has the patience of a Jedi Master.

Watch a trailer for the blocky version of Episode IV after the break.

bioshock lego 1

BioShock Infinite is packed with memorable structures and places, but the Bank of the Prophet stands out. LEGO builder Imagine Rigney focused on that location from the game and created a massive and beautiful diorama from LEGO. The finished piece was exhibited at Brickworld, and the mini set from Columbia is drool worthy. It even incorporated a rail system.

Check out some of the details after the break (including a video).

halo 3

The idea of watching someone sing in a stairwell may not sound appealing, but it’s surprisingly mesmerizing. YouTuber Quinn Halleck found an empty stairwell and leveraged its acoustics with his voice to create a beautiful rendition of the Halo 3 theme song.

Watch the video after the break and prepare to be impressed…
