We Review: Disney Magical World (3DS)

Disney Magical World is a Life Sim game that puts you into some famous Disney worlds to roam or play at will. Think of it as Animal Crossing meets Disney. It’s not the kind of game that’s usually on anyone’s radar: but I’m going to tell you why it should be. Continue Reading →

Frovacado: Bizarre Animal Food Mashups by Sarah DeRemer

A frog meets an avocado and a hippopotamus makes for a delicious potato snack in “Animal Food”. Check out the weirdness DeRemer cooked up after the jump.

Umbrellas, Drones, and OK Go

Alt-rock band OK Go trade treadmills for self-balancing unicyles in the music video to their infectious disco tune, I Won’t Let You Down.

The one-take video shot from a camera onboard a multi-copter drone follows the band as they start a synchronized dance riding Honda’s UNI-CUB personal transport devices. The action gets more ambitious and complicated as the camera takes to the skies over Japan’s Chiba prefecture and captures a veritable army of dancers opening and closing their umbrellas in time to the song. It’s a delight but you wouldn’t expect anything less from OK Go. Check it out below.

Princess Peach: Political Mastermind?

Redditor DrunkRobot97 makes an interesting case for the reason why Princess Peach from the Mario series keeps getting kidnapped, and why she’s still in power in the Mushroom Kingdom. Even if you don’t pay too much attention to the Mario games, you still have to wonder how she manages to pull it off. I know it’s a bit long, but take a look at this brilliant theory and let us know what you think. I’ve posted the text of the theory here, but it’s worth going to the site to read the followup discussion.

We Review: Destiny

Just about anyone who has an interest in Destiny will probably have already bought it, or read a review about it and made up their minds. So why read this one? I can’t actually provide a decent answer except perhaps this: this review is probably entertaining. Continue Reading →

Creepy October: Bedfellows

If you’ve not heard of Drew Daywalt (IMDB link), odds are you’re not familiar with an amazing, prolific art form: short horror. YouTube abounds with short films that cram as much scare into between two and fifteen minutes as most feature-length triple-A, big budget horror films.

Daywalt’s Bedfellows is acknowledged as a masterwork of storytelling, atmosphere, and creep. It clocks in at just over 2 minutes, but boy, what an intense two minutes! There’s no gore, just pure atmos…fear.

If you enjoy this, there’s a whole stack more over at Drew’s short film channels, Fewdiodotcom and Daywalt Fear Factory.

Ferrari California T Gets Glow-In-The-Dark Paint Job

It’s hard to miss the eye-catching art of Fabian Oefner. In his State of the Art project, Ferrari’s new 2-door grand tourer the California T is the subject of Oefner’s attention. It’s also the canvas.

Oefner placed the California T in a wind tunnel and sprayed UV light–reactive paint over the car. Travelling at over 150 miles per hour, the paint glowed and streaked across the California T’s svelte body. Have a look at the colourful results after the jump.

We Review: Comic Workshop (Nintendo 3DS)

This is going to be a bit of an unusual review: since I’m reviewing an art application for the Nintendo 3DS, I decided to put the app to good use and create the majority of the review in the app. What you see has not been altered in any way outside the app, so you’re getting a decent representation of its use. Because of the nature of the review, I’ve provided some extra screenshots of the app itself afterwards (obviously, official screenshot artwork isn’t mine!) Enjoy! Continue Reading →

We Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U)

Bayonetta, the insane, leggy witch with more attitude than a high school full of sassy teens, is back. With more sass. More insanity. And more leg (probably). The first game (reviewed here) was a cornucopia of bullets and blood, and this time, Bayonetta 2 promises more of the same, just with …well…more. I grab my guns and go to hell to bring you this review. Continue Reading →
