LinksKristina PinoComment

[Another week gone by... meaning it's another week closer to summer! I've got just a few weeks to go, then I'm off for a good, long while. A much-needed break! I just have to plan it all. Hehe.]

On Games:

If you have a 3DS, check out some Sega Game Gear classic games that just went up for sale in the eShop. Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic Labyrinth, and Crystal Warriors. If you've missed past releases, here's a look at everything.

(via TouchArcade) Limbo will be headed to iOS July 3rd. Exciting! Here's my review of that excellent game. It'll be US$4.99 for iDevices.

Want to go fully digital with your 3DS? Guess what - you can carry over your save file from your physical copy to a downloaded version of the same game now.

On Books and such:

(via TOR) The Game of Thrones main theme as a ska tune. It's awesome. And you can download it.

(via Galleycat) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children to get a movie adaptation for 2015 with Tim Burton as the director and Jane Goldman as the script writer.

(also via Galleycat) Only about a third of parents read to their kiddos nightly. That's too bad... Here's a little infographic to give you an idea of the effects.

Stuff that goes on in space:

The folks at Nerdist had a chat with the guy who plans on putting a TARDIS into actual orbit.

(via Fashionably Geek) Lightsaber earrings. Need I say more?

 

 

Other:

Batman leggings. I don't remember where I spotted these from, but here's a page where you can buy them. I'll take 10.

(via FashionablyGeek) Disney Princesses meet Moulin Rouge.

[That's it for this week... have a good one! Stay dry, stay cool, all that good stuff.]
