The Dallas Cowboys have a new stadium (bear with me, because my story gets better). In the middle of this stadium is the world’s largest TV — an LED screen that measures 72 feet by 160. It’s a little weird, since there’s really no point in going to a football game if you’re just going to be watching the action on a TV anyways. Whatever. You probably don’t care.
But you might care that someone hooked up their Xbox 360 to this TV, and played the world’s biggest game of Halo 3; check the video for proof. If you’re insanely jealous and need someone to hate, the guy playing is Jonas Brothers video director Steve Fatone. (Via Shutdown Corner)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
