Linkables 21/7/8

First of all, and if you never click on another link on a 'Linkables' post, click on this one, you have to watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-along blog. It's a series of three very funny musical episodes centred on the eponymous Dr. Horrible, a supervillain-wannabe, constantly foiled by his nemesis, Captain Hammer. It stars Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillan, and is a great example of what you can do with minimal resources and lots of ideas (and some professional equipment and actors, of course...).

I'm a sucker for physics-based flash games, and Fantastic Contraption is a great example of the genre, forcing you to be resourceful, inventive and lucky, with a very simple interface.

The Last Stand and its sequel, are fairly standard mouse-click zombie killer games, but are well polished and have some nice touches. Addictive enough to cause me to shout at my computer when I lose, though that's maybe not saying much.

Convert your name into that of a Brazilian footballer. Don't ask why...

And finally a great example of the kind of well-written personal story that turns up all the time on Post of the Week, this time concerning a moving pub conversation.
