Weekend Links: Keeping You Cool Despite the Brutal Heat

The heat; it is inescapable, really.  At least here in the heart of NYC, where to go outside is to take your life in to your very hands.  The furious Sun has come back with a vengeance and your pale skin is the sacrifice it desires.  ALL WILL BURN BEFORE ITS NUCLEAR-FUELED MIGHT. So stay inside, won’t you, and check out these  tasty links:

Cthulu Lego sets for all! Did you know it’s actually Lego, not Legos? Look at that, already smarter.

You like Minecraft? You like Game of Thrones? Then you’re in luck: some intrepid/insane gamers have been busy re-creating all of Westeros in Notch’s super-addictive Simulator? Way of life? Whatever it is, make sure to click the link above and check out all the construction going on.  It’s mind bottling.

Have you been watching Video Game High School?  What do you think so far?  I kind of enjoyed the first episode but haven’t gotten around to the rest.  But never fear! (ed note: Who, exactly?)  I’ve gots you  (ed. note: Kotaku’s “gots” you) covered with the first nine episodes ready to watch. Watch them and let us know what you think!

Speaking of watching and video games, The Super Mario Bros. Super Show is now on Netflix.  Maybe it’s not amazing, but it certainly beats going outside.

Here’s a recipe for S’mores Pancakes;this has nothing to do with either video games or comic books but damn, they look awesome. LOOK AT THEM.
