Of the Internet’s Fruits, Fables and Food Porn (Week ending 27/06/14)

Ain’t the internet great? Awesome hub for creativity, news, opinions, artwork, pornography, arms trafficking and television show piracy. Easily one of the best advances of the modern epoch.

A theme that emerged from what caught my eye this week was stuff the world wide web provides. Granted, that’s kind of a given when the source of both these news posts and Zite Bites itself is that gargantuan morass we call the internet, but the web seemed intent on disgorging a lot of stuff this past week. A lot of it’s suppositional or just strange, but then again, you knew what you were getting into when you clicked this link, right?

Frozen mashes up with Mass Effect, and the result is glorious

Come on, admit it. You’re not really sick of “Let It Go” parodies, are you? Is anyone? (besides my housemate)

It’s pretty much what it says on the tin, but a look is definitely warranted. Don’t say I never show you nice things.

A bunch of Marvel writers at Heroes Con do an awesome panel on things

SOURCE: BLEEDING COOL

If you’re as into behind the scenes stuff with comic books as I am, check this out. Makes me kinda wish we had more writers over here going to cons – way more entertaining than sitting at home watching MasterChef.

One thing the writers confirmed is that when sales dip, a character bites it. That does kinda sour the flavour a little but it makes sense. I’d probably want to shotgun my prize-winning horse if it lost a few races, too. I mean, it’s not like you could give that horse robot legs or a rocket pack instead, right?

Harry Potter wants to be Robin

SOURCE: TOTAL FILM

Whaddaya think, Biters? Do we prefer this, or R-Patz as the new Indiana Jones? Coz right now I could go either way.

On top of the above, The Doctor might want to be The Riddler

SOURCE: COMICBOOK.COM

This I’m a little warmer towards. It was disappointing when David Tennant didn’t snag a Riddler role for The Dark Knight Rises, so it’d be nice to see at least one Doctor put the full psychopath suit on and be all villainous. Coz dammit if Matt Smith doesn’t have a really wicked smile when he wants to.

Queen Elizabeth, Second of Her Name, debates usurping the Lannisters for control of Westeros

SOURCE: THE VERGE

I, for one, am ok with this. No-one would dare screw with England if their monarch sits on the Iron Thorne. Would you? I wouldn’t. I’d run scared like a little kid and change my surname to Snow.

Also, ain’t that mini Iron Throne cute?

Apparently the Steam summer sale game is rigged, or something

SOURCE: TMI

Honestly, this didn’t really grab me and I don’t fully get how the game on the summer sale works (I’m just more interested in snagging 2D roguelikes for $3 a pop at the moment). Maybe some of you might find it interesting.

Also, Summer Sale, yo! Cheap things! Wallet puncturing! ARGH!

The Pizza Bed may be the newest benchmark for humanity’s gluttonous hubris

…excuse me while I wipe this drool away. Just call me Homer Simpson.

Mmmm….gluttony.

Prepare (possibly) to say bye-bye to the X-Men in comic form

SOURCE: BLEEDING COOL

Take with a massive pinch of salt, Biters. Rich Johnston is an excitementmongerer at the best of times, and since there’s plenty of “stories” like this floating around message boards it could possibly be fake.

That said, it’d be a major step backward if Marvel actually did do this thing. I’ve never cared for the Fantastic Four, so getting rid of them don’t bother me, but X-Men are pretty huge in comics right now. Yes, a lot of that’s coz Days of Future Past did pretty well, but still – can you really imagine a world without Wolverine?

Oh. I guess you can.

That’s all for this week. Come back next Friday for another Bite!
