The Collection: LEGO Wimbledon! Pong.com! Sharknado!

by on July 10, 2013

Collection200x200With all the stuff going on here regarding Course of the Force and Comic-Con preparations, The Collection, our irregular sampling of stuff going on that we didn’t have any place else to put, has been patiently waiting in the background. Let’s shake out a few items while we have a few seconds, okay?

First, you may have seen Andy Murray win Wimbledon, but you didn’t see it in LEGOs… until now:

This is cool: cross Pinterest with online Flash games and you get Pong.com, which is an interesting way for you to collect and find and play flash games. The idea is just like Pinterest — you see a game online, you “pong” it to your Pong.com page, you categorize them, and you follow others (and get followed) to see what else is out there. Developers and publishers can pong their own games (and embed their own video ads and keep all the revenue). Ultimately, it’ll be ad-supported, but try it out and see if your favorite vintage games are there. Yes, including the original Pong. (Nolan Bushnell is saying good things about this Pong, by the way, for what it’s worth….) (HT: TheNextWeb.com)

Oh, that IS silly. It’s coming Thursday at 9e on SyFy. Of COURSE Tara Reid is in it.
