Play This: 2048

Numbers, numbers everywhere. Italian developer Gabriele Cirulli’s numbers game 2048 is becoming a viral sensation. Some go so far as to say it’s the addictive successor to Flappy Bird.

In a concept that is similar to Asher Vollmer’s Threes, 2048 is a game where you need to combine numbers on a 4×4 grid until you unlock the magic tile of 2048. Each move introduces a new number onto a board and while it might be deceptively easy to get started, it’s another thing altogether to reach your goal.

Play 2048 for free at http://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048 and let us know how you did.

The Payday Song

Times are tough and if budgeting is not a word in your vocabulary getting from one pay day to the next can be quite the challenge. Nic Smal and Gareth Allison know (and share) your pain, and express it the best way they can.

In PAYDAY, the duo go on a roller coaster of emotions from highs where every meal is ribs to the lowest of lows where clothes pegs are French fries.

We Review: Thief

Back in 1998, Eidos released Thief: The Dark Project as a massive “up your ziggy with a wahwah brush” to the entire first person shooter genre. As you probably already know (but which, for the sake of narrative flow in a review, I’m going to tell you again), the game eschewed the “3 guns a-blazing, 2 foes a-dying, and a partridge in a pear tree” style of FPS that was made popular by Doom, Hexen, Quake, and Unreal. Instead, it opted for a “tread softly and carry a big bag for loot” approach. First person stealth! How novel! And of course, the game was an instant success. So now in 2014, we have the highly-anticipated reboot of the game, simply titled “Thief”. Let’s open the bag of loot and see what we’ve absconded with. Read more

Which is the Killer: Current or Voltage?

You may have heard that it’s not the voltage that kills you, but the current. Indian electrical engineer/masochist Mehdi Sadaghdar (ElectroBOOMGuy) decided to test this in his own dangerously hilarious style. Be warned, some colourful language.

To see more of Sadaghdar’s sparky videos, head to YouTube.

We Review: Fable Anniversary

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.

First Kiss

As we’ve seen before kissing can be gross, and in some cases it can be detrimental to your health. Kissing can be awkward too, especially if it’s your first one and more so if you don’t even know the person that you’re about to do it to.

With FIRST KISS, the people over at the fashion label WREN studio asked a bunch of strangers (some of whom are models) to kiss each other and then filmed the intimate moments. Some are cute, others are cringe-worthy and over 20 million people have exhibited their voyeuristic tendencies, so check it out below.

Posters for Every Episode of Breaking Bad

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.

BABYMETAL: Dangerously Kawaii

It appears the crossroads of heavy metal and pop music meet (unsurprisingly) in Japan. Before the creation of BABYMETAL the world’s first half pop/half heavy metal band, its three female members didn’t even know what metal music was. Perhaps it’s by design or just happenstance, but the ladies certainly rock out to their “dangerous kawaii” image. Check out their cute head-banging antics in Give Me Choco!!.

BABYMETAL’s self-titled album can be purchased on iTunes.
