We haven’t spent a lot of time talking about Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff-prequel that wrapped up its first season last night, which is too bad. Because it’s stellar.
Because seeing a geriatric cyborg badass is kinda cathartic in a way.
Basement, an indie strategy game currently in development, is about a "scientist that has been forced to do not exactly legal stuff underground". You know where this is going.
Taiwanese builder RC has made a range of custom accessory sets (head, clothes, etc) that will transform any standard 1/6 scale figure/doll into your very own Breaking Bad toy.

British reader Junior, along with some friends, figured we'd like to see what would happen when Ryu fought Breaking Bad's Jesse. Um, yes.
This week Facebook got a lot of traction for the treacly "Look Back" montages it cobbled together of your earliest and best moments, as the social network observed its 10th birthday. Here's what Heisenberg's video would have looked like. Fortunately, there are no spoilers within.
...It'd probably look like this fan art, drawn by talented Kotaku reader Max and his brother Leonardo. Lots of old PlayStation characters to spot in there.
When I think of Breaking Bad's arid desert milieu, I don't really think of ice skating. And yet Breaking Ice, a more-or-less-official ice-dancing recreation of the show, manages to capture the whole thing awfully well.
When Breaking Bad finished, I rounded up some of dorkier roles lead actor Bryan Cranston had been in over the years, from Power Rangers to anime. One role I completely missed, though, was one of his best.
We've spent plenty of time imagining what a Breaking Bad video game would look like. And heck, if you customize your character right, you can make GTA V into one… kinda. But what if the type of game best suited to Heisenberg's odyssey is the kind with no graphics at all?
OK, so it's not that secret, but in this, a week where Bryan Cranston's final performance as Walter White has been the talk of the internet, it's as good a time as any to look back on a time when he was...doing voice-over work for anime.
Based on popular Breaking Bad memes, you'd think that the entirety of Aaron Paul's performance as Jesse Pinkman revolved around a script with a single word in it: "bitch."
The last place I ever expected to see Walter White from Breaking Bad was one of the cute, innocent towns in Animal Crossing. But here he is! A perfect lab and partner for cooking... bells?
Breaking Bad has an ending—maybe you've watched it? And maybe that ending played out the way you thought it would. Or maybe you had your own ending in mind...perhaps something more like these fan-servicey endings created by CollegeHumor?
So here we are. The show's over, folks. The final episode of Breaking Bad has aired. Let's give it a look, and attempt to process.
It was already difficult to watch the trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed movie without thinking of its star, Aaron Paul, as his Breaking Bad character Jesse Pinkman. And now, thanks to this dramatic (and spoiler-filled) mash-up video from Slacktory, it'll be even more difficult.
In an ideal world, we could jump into this 8-bit Breaking Bad game right after the finale of the series. Sadly it's just an imaginary start screen—a pretty neat one, nevertheless—of an imaginary game, The Legend of Heisenberg, made by Filippo Morini.
