You know how it is. There are just some days where you feel conspicuous because everyone is walking around with their hamsters properly deflated, and yours is still fully inflated and by this point, you’re too afraid to ask how to deflate it properly. And that’s not mentioning just how unsafe it all is. You COULD use one of the unorthodox methods, but then you’ve got an unhappy hamster and you’re also having to sweep out the dead bees and shoo away the monkey mariachi band. If only there was some simple way to do this! Well, there is! And this tutorial will show you how! After the jump.

Right in time for the release of the new Jurassic Park film, we have a non-Jurassic Park game to review. But it still features dinosaurs. It’s like what would happen if you combined Pokemon with dinosaurs. Except the dinosaurs are called vivosaurs for no discernable reason. Sounds fascinating? Hop into the Bone Buggy and let’s go for a ride down to the corner of Archaeology Lane and Catch-em-all Avenue.
Kung Fury is one of those things that I’m sure started as one hell of a joke, and just gained life of its own accord because of just how awesome the entire concept felt. It started as a trailer looking for Kickstarter funding–which it received and then some, but still falling short of the funds needed to pay for an full length feature film.
The entire film is a homage to cheesy 80s action flicks, and director David Sandberg also plays lead character, Kung Fury. Some scenes even look as if the entire film is being played back on an old VHS machine. Oh the memories! To top off the cheesiness, the film has a theme song by Mr Knight Rider himself, David Hasselhoff, titled “True Survivor“. The theme song vid on YouTube has well over 10 million views already, so I guess you can consider it popular? Watch the film after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
It’s not every day that big video game companies create new IP, instead preferring to rely on the name impact of existing, highly successful titles instead. This is why Mario has his face on so many Nintendo titles. Creating new IP is adding extra risk to what is, admittedly, a highly costly business. So it’s with no surprise, really, that we learn that Mario was originally supposed to be the face of Splatoon, Nintendo’s new third-person online battle arena game. I fill my super soaker with multicoloured ink, dunk my paint roller, and head for the urban parkways to see what Splatoon is all about.
No one should have any excuse for not knowing Erwin Schroedinger’s famous thought-experiment about the cat that was both alive and dead at the same time, as a metaphor for quantum states. For those of you who forgot, in short, there’s a cat in a sealed box with a vial of poison, a detector, and a radioactive isotope. If the isotope decays, the detector detects it, breaks the vial, poison is released and the cat dies. If it doesn’t decay, the cat is alive and well. Without opening the box, how do you know if the cat is alive or dead? You don’t…until you open the box and observe the cat, it is both dead and alive at the same time. Don’t worry, though. No real cats were harmed in this experiment. Does all this have much relevance to the review? Why yes. Yes it does. Read on to find out why.
Airline safety videos have gotten more elaborate in an effort to get people to pay attention. New Zealand airways has their hobbitses, and now Delta has decided to put the entire freaking internet memedom into theirs. How many can you recognize?
What happens when you mix Terraria (or Minecraft, if that’s your poison) with a strategy game, a tower defense game, and a healthy predilection for soup? You get PixelJunk Nom Nom Galaxy, a new game from the masters of addictive gaming, Q-Games and Double-11. Let me show you just how addictive making soup can be. Trust me: it’s more fun that it sounds.
Anyone who has seen or played Fantasy Zone will instantly recognize the insanely cute graphical stylings of an insanely difficult game (one of the few games that belong to a genre called, appropriately, “cute-’em-ups”). It has a long and very checkered history, with ports onto almost a dozen different platforms, including the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Megadrive, and of course, an appearance in video arcades. The 3D release of this game has now been released on the 3DS, and I get cute to bring this review to you.
Did you know that since its inception in the late 30s up until the early 90s, three very distinct stars were featured in Samsung’s logo? They were to represent something “big, numerous, and powerful.” And big it is — the Electronics arm of Samsung is the world’s largest technology company (by sheer revenue). And just a couple of months ago, our local Samsung Electronics South Africa broke the Guinness World Record for the most selfies taken in one day using new Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5 range of smartphones.
Do you know what else is verging on a record?
From Software are famous for their extremely hard games, and from Demon’s Souls to Dark Souls to Dark Souls II, you know you’re not going to have an easy time of this developer’s games. And like button-mashing masochists, everyone keeps going back for more punishment. Myself included. And this brutality is why we’re going to review Bloodborne, From Software’s first PS4 outing.
