Rumors cropped up last year that claimed Netflix was launching a Legend of Zelda series described as “Game of Thrones for a family audience”. Those rumors have been shot down for the time being, but worry not! MegaSteakMan has been hard at work producing a fantastic Zelda/GoT fan-film as a follow-up to the mock Game of Hyrule title sequence he did last year.

Clocking in at just shy of six minutes, this thing is elaborate, funny, and wonderfully assembled. Check out the short, as well as those wonderful opening credits, below.

As part of a marketing tie-in for the newest Yu-Gi-Oh! movie, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, the Shinjuku Station in Tokyo is featuring an awesome display that holds every single Yu-Gi-Oh! card that’s been sold since 1999.

That’s 7,649 cards in total. I can’t even imagine how much a collection like that would be worth.

Everybody loves Age of Empires, unless you’re me in which case you were probably playing The Settlers instead because you thought it was better. Time sure told on that one, eh readers? Nobody’s making LEGO recreations of buildings from The Settlers now, are they?

Check out a, haha, breakdown of these LEGO creations below.

In an all-new set of commercials that are part of their Overdubs series, Ford has brought back Metal Gear actor David Hayter as Solid Snake (after a surprising breakup with Konami several years ago), as well as Paul Eiding as Col. Roy Campbell for a pair of ads that is both amusing and kind of depressing in equal measure.
