By the mid 1990′s, people were more comfortable with technology. Granted, things were just getting started, but people were ready for technology to change their world. More and more people were using cell phones, and kids were being raised with video games and computers in school.

In just 1994, a nerdy think tank were already predicting a world were people used tablet computers to read the newspaper. It’s scary that they hit the nail right on the head exactly. The video is being shared on Gawker.

Conan O’Brien Plays And Reviews The New Super Smash Bros On Wii U

Super Smash Brothers is one of Nintendo‘s most popular franchises. The original on the N64, and the sequels on the Gamecube and Wii are all still played today. With so many new games out there, that’s saying something. After much anticipation, Nintendo has unveiled that they are creating a brand new Super Smash Bros for their newest systems, the Wii U and handheld 3DS. 

Conan O’Brien and his nerd-in-chief on staff Aaron Blair were lucky enough to get their hands on an early release of the game to try it out and give it one of their famous Clueless Gamer reviews.

New YouTuber on the block Brian Anderson has instantly exploded online, mashing up countless web favorites into one epic parody video. He mixed Legos, Breaking Bad, and gaming to create this Lego Breaking Bad Video Game Parody that has quickly gone viralviral. 

Like so many other Lego video games, players interact in the Breaking Bad world that has been completely re-imagined with the ubiquitous plastic block toys. 

Shockingly, Brian admits he has “no affiliation with Traveller’s Tales, LEGO, or AMC.” Obviously, the impressive fan made video has fooled more than just a couple viewers.  

Already, the new video has garnered over 150,000 views, and is featured on DigitalSpy, Mashable, and IGN

How Geeky Were You As A Child?

  1. You weren’t super geeky as a kid. You probably went pond dipping once or twice, but were happier playing sport or making your own fun with your friends. But remember, it’s never too late to embrace your nerdy side.

  2. You were pretty geeky as a kid. You spent some time experimenting and probably made more than your fair share of homemade volcanoes and rockets. But you were just as happy with other activities too.

  3. You were very geeky as a kid. Science was probably one of your favourite subjects at school and you spent most of the holidays geeking out too. I mean, what’s the point of spending a day at the beach if you don’t dig around in some rock pools?

Back in the late 1980′s, the video games market had a rebirth, thanks mostly to Nintendo and their Nintendo Entertainment System. In 1991, Nintendo introduced their new system, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, with better graphics, more computing power, and better games. But it came with the steep 1991 price of $200. That’s around $331.46 today. 

The nightly news gave a ridiculous report on people who were “Ninten-pendent”, and were upset about the high price of the new system. The classic video clip is featured on Guyism
