And so, dear readers, we return to Albion. Or is that re-return? How do we phrase starting from the beginning all over again with a new coat of paint? Hmm…perhaps “Once Upon a Time” will do? Either way, let’s find out if the HD release of Fable is a shining prince, a damsel in distress, or the big bad wolf.

25 years ago, the World Wide Web didn’t exist. For all the good (and bad) it has brought we owe a its inventor—Tim Berners-Lee—the biggest of pats on the back. Good job, Tim. If you’d like to find out how it all began, check out Wikipedia, read this news article, or even watch this YouTube video.
But you’re not here for that, no siree. Hit the jump to view a 30-second clip of a website model involuntarily dancing to Technotronic’s Pump Up the Jam.
Breaking Bad was fantastic and we’re not likely to see a show of that calibre for some time to come. The drama takes its spot in the Guinness World Records 2014 edition as the “highest rated TV series.” thanks to a metascore of 99/100 on Metacritic. That’s almost as good as Heisenberg’s Blue Sky, which you’ll recall was 99.1% pure.
The series may have concluded but the fan love from Breaking Bad goes on. It left such an impression on Budapest-based designer Zsolt Molnár that he spent five months creating wonderfully minimalist posters for each of the 62 Breaking Bad episodes. Relive some of those momentous events after the jump, but be cautious of spoilers if you haven’t seen the show yet.
Choosing a pet can be difficult. Size, temperament, and maintenance are are important factors to consider. Certain breeds are susceptible to certain diseases, and some disorders may be hereditary.
This handy guide created by artist John Conway shows you the benefits and drawbacks should you be looking for a dinosaur to match your lifestyle. Velociraptors, for example, have extremely beautiful plumage but the risk of disembowelment is quite high. The Lambeosaurus has a peaceful disposition and is a good fit for a family, but housing it will be a problem due to its size. Find out more in the Dinosaur Pet Guide after the jump.
We don’t often get a chance to review DLC. But when the DLC is pretty much the core of the game, well, we owe it to you, dear gamers. In any event, you wouldn’t think that soccer and pinball would mix well, so I’m here to tell you whether this game is scoring hat tricks, or getting red carded for bad behaviour.
Pharrell Williams has created and collaborated on some catchy, danceable tunes. Quirky musical duo Pomplamoose take vocals from both Pharrell’s “Happy” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” with a bit of “Lose Yourself to Dance” thrown in for good measure. The result — Happy Get Lucky — is a bubbly tune with an accompanying video that is equally playful, and done in one continuous take. Check it out below.
How cool is this? By using a simple yet nifty visual effect, GIF creators are able to bring out eye-popping 3D qualities from 2D animated GIFs. Two vertical stripes are added to the GIF, and when a moving object blocks these lines, our brains are tricked into thinking that the object is coming out of the image.
Have a look at some of these wonderful “3D” GIFs after the jump.
Monsters need some love, too. And back in the 60s, the Topps candy company tasked the late pulp artist Norman Saunders with painting a series of cards called Frankenstein Valentine Stickers.
Saunders painted iconic monsters from TV and film together with the cute, punny, and creepy pick-up lines they might try on the opposite sex. Mole Man has eyes for your silky skin, while Dracula vants you in vein, and all Zacherle hopes for is a ghoul friend.
