We Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

As you know, we here at Prawn Central LOVE us some LEGO games, so it’s with a lot of excitement that we got our grubby mitts on LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, the latest LEGO game from Travellers Tales. If you’ve played a LEGO game before, I doubt there’ll be much in this review that’s new to you, but I think you should read it anyhow, if only for the entertainment value. Excelsior!

Say Hello to Darcy, the Cutest Hedgehog in the World

While Ze Frank’s rather informative video made you rethink what you knew about hedgehogs, he neglected to mention that they are in fact the cutest things in the world. Case in point: Darcy the Flying Hedgehog.

Instagrammer/hedgehographer Shota Tsukamoto from Tokyo, Japan named his three-year-old hedgehog after D’arcy Wretzky, the former bass player of The Smashing Pumpkins. Despite the prickly origins of her name, Darcy’s most adorable nature is seen in the multitude of quirky scenes that Tsukamoto’s photographs her in. Have a look at some of our favourite photos of Darcy after the jump.

All fans of JRPGs, stick up your hands. Odds are, you lot were also fans of Final Fantasy at some point or another.

We Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

A Link Between Worlds is the first completely new Legend of Zelda game since Skyward Sword on the Wii (all the other games since Skyward have been remakes of older games), and for those fans of the series who have been playing it long enough, it’s a sequel to A Link to the Past for SNES, and takes place in the same game world. I don my green cap, take up the Master Sword, and head into the land of Hyrule to see how many rupees we can dig up.

Helmet Cam Captures Base Jumper’s Terrifying Fall

Sometimes base jumping goes well. Daredevil Jeb Corliss recently leapt out a helicopter and flew through a fissure in a mountain at 160 KM/H (See the dagger jump).

Now in the category of “things done less well”, comes a clip from Vimeo user Subterminallyill. The chap jumped off a cliff near Moab, Utah and his helmet cam captured the frightening views as he came into contact with the immovable object. Mercifully the man cheated death but suffered a compression fracture, stitches to the eye and chin, severely sprained hands, and a bruised ego. Check out the Cliff Strike below.

We Review: Ratchet & Clank: Nexus

Insomniac Games has treated PlayStation users to the wonderful world of Ratchet & Clank since 2002. A Crack in Time was one of the best in the series in 2009, but since then the destructive duo has had some lacklustre journeys through the co-op universe and the galaxy of tower defense. With Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, have they found their way out of the doldrums, and set their course back into familiar territory?

Freerunning Through Moscow

Urban ninja and freerunner Vasiliy Patrakov joins a mate as they run and jump across the playground that is Moscow. Take a sightseeing tour of the Russian capital city from Patrakov’s perspective, it’s equal parts exhilarating and dizzying.
