Although I bought Assassin’s Creed III when it launched (actually, I pre-ordered it from Amazon for the extra bonuses although I am now kicking myself for that after seeing how cheap it will be on Black Friday), I have not got around to playing it.  I still need to finish Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Halo 4 before I move on to it, however I have been very impressed with the cosplay the game has been inspiring so far.

Not too long ago, I posted some spectacular Assassin’s Creed III Conner Kenway cosplay (and Aveline de Grandpre cosplay) and while I think this Connor Kenway cosplay is quite good, its not as stunning as that.  However, this video more than makes up the difference with the beautiful music, especially the violin playing!

Lindsey Stirling is the awesome cosplayer and violin player in this awesome Assassin’s Creed III inspired music video.  I’m not sure where this video was shot, but the scenery is beautiful and the video turned out amazing!

One of the things I find addicting about Tetris is that you are always setting yourself up so that when that piece you want comes along, it will be a perfect fit and complete the row that you are working on.  Well, apparently the condom maker One thought that this idea would be a clever idea for a condom.

I can certainly see what they were thinking as far as the “perfect fit” idea, but apparently they don’t play much Tetris because if they did, they would know that once you put that last perfectly fit piece in place, the lines go away.  Is that really the message you want to send with your condoms that when applied, it will go away and leave you with no protection?  Sounds like a poorly thought out idea to me!

If you are going to go with a geeky condom, I would say stick with the “I will not be your father” Darth Vader condoms.

I stopped using an alarm clock years ago since my phone has that functionality built in and it works just as well as an alarm clock (except it can’t wake me up to FM radio like my old clock radio used to).  However, this animated Tetris alarm clock could easily convince me to go back to a dedicated alarm clock.

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this cool animated Tetris alarm clock for $29.99.  Not only do the numbers show up as Tetris blocks falling into place, but the buttons on the clock are in the shape of Tetris blocks and the alarm music that wakes you up is the classic Tetris music!  The display is also backlit and it runs on 2 AA batteries (which scares me as I prefer something that plugs in so you don’t have to worry about the batteries dying when you really need the clock to wake you up although a battery backup would be ideal).

When Super Mario goes down the wrong warp pipe and is sent to a galaxy far far away, one thing is for sure…the plumber will strike back!  OK, that might not be the best opening line I have ever written on a blog post (although I kind of like it when I read it in my head as the deep voice movie trailer guy) but I’m behind schedule today (its been a very bad morning) and it was the best I could come up with given how distracted I am.

Anyway, for those that are fans of both Super Mario Bros and Star Wars, I have a feeling you will love this shirt named The Plumber Strikes Back!  The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this fantastic shirt for just $10 today only!

I plan on buying this shirt today (I love mash-up shirts involving Mario or Star Wars such as the Donkey Kong/Star Wars shirt I wear) and if you love those two as well, I highly recommend you grab a shirt before the deal is gone!  If you are worried, I can vouch for the quality of the shirts that TeeFury sells as most of the shirts I wear I have bought from them.  The price may be cheap but the shirts aren’t!

Although there are different things I love about all of the different video game consoles I own, there is just something about the Super Nintendo that I seem to love more than the others.  Part of that is certainly the games for it but another major part of that is the controller.  When it comes to controllers without a joystick, I think it was by far the best but you are welcome to disagree with me in the comments.

Anyway, speaking of the SNES controller, not only is it good for playing old games, it makes for a heck of a cake too!  Sadly, I don’t know who made this awesome SNES controller cake with a bunch of Super Mario Bros mushroom cupcakes, but apparently it is a friend of Reddit user drewmoney.

Normally I get the urge to mash some buttons when I see a controller but this one just makes me hungry.  If you like this cake, check out the SNES console cake I posted in the past!

When it comes to comes to cupcakes, I enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy eating them.  Of course that is assuming they aren’t just some plain, boring cupcake.  Well, since I don’t post anything that is plain or boring, you can rest assured that you are about to see the most amazing Legend of Zelda cupcakes ever made.

Some time ago, I posted some really cool Legend of Zelda 8-bit heart cupcakes, but even though they were really cool (I suggest checking them out), they still feel rather lacking after seeing the Hylian Shield cupcake below.

The amazing Legend of Zelda cupcakes pictured below were created by Nerdache Cakes.  Although I love the 8-bit heart cupcake too, I am blown away by the awesome Hylian Shield cupcake.  The detail is very impressive!
