How to Build Your Own Wheatley
Cosplay blog, Furin Cosplay, has posted a really solid step-by-step process that you can follow to create your own Wheatley replica. When I say, “has posted”, I should clarify that the article itself was posted back in July 2011, but I just recently found it, and well, dammit, there isn’t much to talk about this week. The Wheatly functions as a puppet, and you can even hook up lights/audio to complete the illusion. Watch the Wheatly in action.

Orcs Must Die! and L.A. Noire on Sale!
I have never played LA Noire, but I can speak for Orcs Must Die: It’s balls of fun. OMD is a hybrid action run-and-gun tower-defense game. Players control a battle-mage and are tasked with defending interdemensional portals from an oncoming slew of orcs and monsters. After each level, players unlock a new booby trap to utilize within the next level. I don’t really like tower-defense games (except Revenge of the Titans) but I really enjoyed Orcs Must Die, and for less than $4, it’s a steal!
