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).

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.

This might be about the coolest custom board game table ever. It’s for the game Risk and it’s basically an entire table that’s been carved and painted into the game board. The continents and areas are all mapped out and there’s even a compass. The only problem is that you’ll never be able to pack this one up and bring it to a friend’s house on game night.

And someone please tell that guy to use a coaster for his beer.

Jim Ross’s wrestling commentary has made him an icon in the industry. His over-the-top commentary has now been added to video game footage and it’ll make you wish he was sitting in your living room every time you pick up the controller. We’ve already posted one video with Ross “commenting” on games like Mario Kart and Legend of Zelda and now he’s been added Resident Evil, FIFA Soccer, and more that will have you in hysterics.

8-bit characters of old are quaint and even cute when viewed through our modern eyes, but what if we could turn those 8-bit characters into something more realistic? Scott Johnson took a go of it and translated their 8-bit shapes into something more organic. You’d think they’d remain cute, but they actually walk the line between ugly and horrifying.

This beautiful violin version of Gustavo Santaolalla’s music for The Last of Us features Taylor Davis. The tune is simply haunting and the video to accompany it makes it look like Ellie has stepped right out of the game in Taylor’s skin.

We’re not sure how this Halo 3 Easter Egg remained a secret for so long–seven years to be precise–but the cat’s out of the bag now. Team Beyond noted that Bungie has been teasing this Egg for a bit. In fact, former Bungie developer Adrian Perez, currently at Sucker Punch, once said the following in a community Q&A:

Q: What is your proudest moment in your time at Bungie?

A: Showing my wife the Easter egg I put in the halo 3 loading screen for her – the one that nobody has found yet.

YouTuber Lord Zedd finally found the Egg, and it seems that if you click in both thumbsticks while waiting on the Halo 3 loading screen on December 25, a special video will start. Once you slow the whole thing down, you’ll see a simple birthday message that Perez wrote for his wife, Lauren.

Oh, all the feels!

Pokémon are cute little creatures, no matter how destructive their powers. However, if you take those same adorable Pokémon and give them Attack on Titan makeovers, they’re horrific.

Really, this is your nightmare fodder for tonight, all thanks to deviantArtist Beth Emery. You’ll never look at Pokémon the same way again.
