Geek In The Tubes – Episode One

by on July 22, 2011

Geek-In-The-Tubes-Episode-OneWelcome to Geek in the Tubes, another new Friday Feature from GodisaGeek. We thought we could help you see the weekend in by pulling together some of the most awesome, funny, or outright crazy gaming videos from around the world wide web.

Our team has trawled the web so you don’t have to, and for one Friday every month, we encourage you to grab a drink, sit back and enjoy the awesomeness that you are about to witness. This week, we have FIFA 11 goals of the season, an unbelievable Half-Life fan film and some Minecraft 3D printing and more. 3D printing is all the rage, dont’cha know?

Minecraft is insanely popular at the moment, so much so that a couple of guys have come up with a a script which allows the imaginative structures created in Minecraft to be brought to life using a 3D printer. Printed off in this video is a Portal Companion Cube, and the USS Enterprise. The project, called Minecraft.print, was created by Cody Sumter and Jason Boggess and they have said they will be releasing the script for others to use, and if there is enough interest, could even offer the 3D printing as a service in the future.

If you thought that was cool, just wait until you see this next video. This Half-Life fan film has amassed over 110,000 views on YouTube within a week of it being released, and deservedly so. The video, named Half-Life: Singularity Collapse, has been put together with amazing attention to detail, and goes a long way to say how people feel about the Valve title, even years after its release.

Now, to mix things up a little bit, and to celebrate our FIFA 12 coverage of late, we thought we would share a couple of compilation videos, showcasing the very best goals from FIFA 11. There is some absolute stunners in these videos, and we are very glad we weren’t on the on the receiving end of some of the finishes you are about to watch.

Have you always wanted to see Mario on paper? We have, and now our dreams are a reality, thanks to the following video from Eric Power, who is making such videos to help promote his other projects. He talks about this at the end of the awesomeness that is Paper Mario. This video is a joy to watch, in our opinion.

We hope you enjoyed Geek in the Tubes as much as we did. If you come across any videos that you think are worthy of this page, then let us know on Twitter, our Forums, or on our Facebook page, and we will include your name in the description. Have a great weekend, folks.

Geek in the Tubes is part of Feature Friday here at God is a Geek, and will return next month with Episode Two!
