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

With Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, have they found their way out of the doldrums, and set their course back into familiar territory?

We Review: Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom

Invizimals is Sony’s quieter answer to Pokémon, and the current game has two components: the PS Vita Invizimals: The Alliance, and Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom on PS3. We’re reviewing the latter game today, so let’s take a sightseeing tour through the Lost Kingdom, shall we? Continue Reading →

We Review: XCOM: Enemy Within

If you’ll recall, last year we reviewed XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and we loved it so much we gave it nine and a half prawns. That’s a lot of prawns. The game is back, this time as a standalone expansion pack (ie, you don’t need to own the original XCOM to play it). To prepare for this review, you have some homework—go read the review of the first XCOM game, because much of what I have to say will be covered there; I’m only going to include what’s changed in this review. No need to do things twice, eh? Onward! Continue Reading →

Hybrid Hijinks

Animal hybrids go way back in time. For example, the history of Ligers (a cross between a lion and a tiger) and zeedonks (a zebra-and-donkey combination) dates back to early 19th century. Dirds, however, are a entirely new invention courtesy of the Internet’s most mad scientists.

In a spot of hybrid hijinks, bird bodies and dog heads are being put together in a rather amusing way. Have a look at a small collection of Dirds after the jump.
