We Review: Table Top Racing (PS Vita)

Table Top Racing, for those of you who don’t play games on your phones or tablets, is a racing game that uses the conceit of a bunch of toy cars racing around a track made out of household object. In fact, if you remember playing Micro Machines back in the early 1990s, you’ll be fairly familiar with the idea. This time around, though, we’re reviewing the new PS Vita release of Table Top Racing. Let’s see how much revving we need to do. Read more

Chart of Things that Glow

Bioluminescence is, by it’s definition, emitted light from living things. It serves several purposes in life, including warnings to others, attracting food, and attracting mates. We know that a good many things have glowy bits, but it’s hard to get a good idea of just how many things around us can create their own light. Now we finally have a very pretty chart, courtesy of artist Eleanor Lutz, that details a (non-exhaustive) number of luminous species. It’s a lot more than you’d think. Check it out.

Woah Dude, Epic Roof Jump!

While sports people are tumbling all over the place in the Commonwealth Games, Ethan Swanson is engaging in some urban gymnastics in Chicago, Illinois. The professional stunt man donned some GoPro gear and decided to leap off one roof onto another and slide down it, in the hopes of landing with his feet firmly planted on a neighbouring spiral staircase. It’s high degree of difficulty, did Swanson nail the execution? Find out below.

We Review: Samsung’s Series 6 Smart LED TV

Time flies when you’re having fun. It was three short weeks ago since we acceptable the challenge of Mission Samsung. For this specific challenge we were sent a 40” Samsung Series 6 Smart LED TV and tasked with a set of missions. In case you missed them, you can catch up on missions one and two. What follows is some of our notes that didn’t make it into the missions and a wrap-up of our experience with Smart LED TV.

Blackboard Wars II: Stop Motion Fun

Stop motion animation is something that’s been part of our entertainment for a long time, so it’s fun to see a creative take on it. This particular well-shot fun short film come from Japan, and is called Blackboard Wars II. It mixes up live action with blackboard animation, and does so with brilliant effect.

And if you liked that, there’s more of that sort of thing where it came from.

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Hands up those of you who had never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy before this year. That’s a lot of hands, but not as many as I’d expected. Those who follow Marvel’s comic universe—and the Avengers in particular—will be more than a little aware of the Guardians, but those who know Marvel for simply Spider-Man or The Avengers have something wonderful in store. Come, let me tell you about it.

OMG, Exercise!

Last week, I received details of the second mission in Mission Samsung‘s blogger challenge and a certain word sent a shiver down the uneven musculature of my spine.

Exercise.

Exercise. The closest I’ve come to exercise is wearing a t-shirt with the word on it. Eggs are sides for bacon, amiright?

EXERCISE.

Honestly, I get tired just thinking about it.

Batman Does Death Metal

Batman rocks out with his cape out in this most hilarious music video. The caped crusader teams up with Robin (drums), Red Hood (bass), and Nightwing (guitar) for a head-banging rendition of Face Fisted by DETHKLOK.

So strong my face is
You punch, break fingers
Kick me, you’re limping
Stab me, you’re bleeding
I am be angerous now
You throwing rock at me
Hit eye and it no hurt me
I’m strong, you’re not
You’re not

The lyrics are extremely fitting for the situations that Batman often finds himself in and the animations are hilarious to boot. Check out BATMETAL below.

We Review: Wayward Manor

Amongst the well-read (and even the not-as-well-read), Neil Gaiman is a familiar name, and renowned for such works as Coraline, The Sandman, and The Graveyard Book. So it’s with some excitement that I discovered that Mr Gaiman was helping to work on a video game. The game—Wayward Manor—is now available for purchase via Steam, and I’ve taken to haunting houses to review it for you. Take my hand and I’ll show you just how wayward an entire manor can get.

Take Me To The Movies

Nothing beats the excitement of watching a movie on the silver screen but at R75 a ticket, it’s hardly the attraction it once was. Catching it on the home cinema certainly diminishes the scale but at least there’s never a queue for snacks, the toilets are clean, and the cinema doesn’t smell of foot. With that in mind, we planned a special evening.

If you’re familiar with Flight of the Conchords, you’ll know that Wednesday night is business time. But for Mission Samsung, we put our romantic interlude aside for a group activity. It’s not what you’re thinking, sies on you :p
