Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the sequel to the original Sniper: Ghost Warrior (Ed: Your observations are simply stunning in their accuracy.) and, while other FPS games tend to focus on fast action, teamwork, and hordes of enemies hell bent on filling you with so much lead that they could use you as a pencil, Sniper focuses on a single aspect of the FPS genre. Killing silently and efficiently. Preferably from a gooooood distance.
You may remember the amazing macro shots of animal eyes by Armenian photographer Suren Manvelyan. In his latest series of photos, Manvelyan continues to focus on the wild eyes of the animal kingdom including owls, foxes, hippos, and birds. Have a look at some of his eye-opening photos after the jump.
Today we got word of a new set of mouth-watering prints. Abe combines hand-drawn touches with digital manipulation to create colourful images of some rather ghoulish chops. Have a look at Bite Me after the jump.
If time is money, then I’d wager this might be the best minute you’ll spend today.
The folks over at 1A4STUDIO have created an awesome, abridged version of the first film in the epic space opera that is Star Wars. It’s minimalist right down to the dialogue, colour palette, and running time of just 60 seconds. Check out the speedrun of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

TT Games have been making Lego games for…ooh, almost a decade now (the first Lego Star Wars game appeared in 2005). Many of the games were based off existing stories and characters, but the time has come for new Lego characters to emerge as video games. Enter Chase McCain in Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins. Let’s hit the streets of Lego City and see if we have what it takes to keep the City safe.
At one point in our lives, we’ve either thought about it or have actually stuck our tongues down the business end of a vacuum cleaner. It might not be a pleasurable experience for us but this cat seems to lap it up. Watch the oddly amusing video below.
Hands up those of you who still play Magic the Gathering, either the card game, or the video game version thereof. Good, you can put your hands down, because I’m unable to see you anyhow. There’s quite a lot of Magic the Gathering news coming! Continue Reading →
If your Monday needed a splash of colour, you might like this video. Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy, the slow-mo guys, put squibs in nail polish bottles filled with paint and set up a Phantom v1610 ultra high speed camera to capture the explosions of colour. Have a look at paint exploding at 15,000 frames a second, or at 600 times slower than our human vision.
With all its parodies, cat doppelgangers, and amazing fan art, the Internet still keeps showing its love for the high fantasy drama that is Game of Thrones. The eagerly-awaited Game of Thrones season 3 premiere was watched by a 4.4 million viewers, beating the previous record of 4.2 million viewers for its season 2 finale. This season is sure to break some other records too. Unsurprisingly, the show has been renewed for an epic fourth season.
If you’ve ever wondered what Game of Thrones might be like if HBO made it in the mid-90s, then wonder now more. YouTube user hunterlsanders created these apt opening credits for the show complete with video tape effects, cheesy character introductions, and a stirring soundtrack by Queen. Check out Game of Thrones – 1995 Style in glorious 4:3 aspect ratio.
It’s that time of year again when we faithfully review the latest game in the Naruto series. Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is the direct sequel to Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (and not last year’s Ultimate Ninja Storm: Generations, which was more of a filler game).
