Evil Ted of DIY Prop Shop shows how to make a set of body armor from Fallout on the cheap. Pretty cool stuff.
Boston Dynamics has further cemented the eventuality that they’re the Cyberdyne Systems of the real world with the SpotMini. Soon these things will be wearing camouflage overlays that make them virtually-indistinguishable from real dogs, and they’ll serve as the perfect surprise attack wave of the eventual AI takeover.
Some b-roll of the footage from the E3 trailer for Titanfall 2 has surfaced, mixed in with a bit of never-before-seen gameplay. It looks like an improvement over the first one, which was, in all honesty, a pretty fun game. I’m pretty eager about this one.
Tom Cruise may be too short to accurately play Jack Reacher (as described in the novels), but he was badass in the first film, and I bet he’ll be badass in this one.
Yeah, I want one.
A Westworld reimagining/remake? Yes, please!
Comes out this October.
Robin and The 7 Hoods is playing on the tube, so it seems like a good reason to share one of the best numbers in the film.
YouTuber NightHawkInLight‘s DIY Airsoft gun wouldn’t be practical (or legal) on a field, but 5000+ RPM certainty is impressive.
ARs… IN… SPACE!
Also, some space ship combat.
I actually liked Batman v Superman, despite some narrative flaws and a bit of weird editing; mostly I liked the action scenes, which were easily the best part of the film. Anyway, the Ultimate Edition is longer, R-rated, and is supposed to fix a bit of the pacing of the film, introducing scenes cut from the theatrical release which, at least a few of, are already in the trailer. I’m looking forward to it.
Looks pretty cool.
If you happen to like Tim and Eric-esque off-beat, frankly weird humor, then you might want to check out the upcoming Adult Swim show Decker: Unclassified. It stars Tim Heidecker as Jack Decker, and is pretty much Tim and Eric meets 24.
Decker: Unclassified premiers June 17th.
This early teaser trailer for Episode 6 holds its original title of Revenge of the Jedi, a title that was later reworked into Return of the Jedi as Lucas didn’t feel revenge and jedi went hand-in-hand.
Pretty funny, kinda disturbing. Then again, that’s The Lonely Island in a nutshell, I suppose.
Thanks to ‘JS’ for the tip!
DOOM comes out tomorrow, so why not show off this ultra-violent claymation done for Bethesda by YouTuber Lee Hardcastle.
John Carpenter will soon be going on a worldwide tour with his band, playing some of his most memorable compositions from movies such as ‘Escape from New York’ and ‘The Fog’, as well as entirely new pieces. Sacred Bones Records released this video of a studio session of a new rendition of the ‘Escape from New York’ theme, which sounds pretty damn great. A link to tickets for the tour can be found below:
Sacred Bones is also releasing Halloween b/w Escape from New York AND Assault on Precinct 13 b/w The Fog on 12″ vinyl, as well as all four pieces on iTunes. Note that these are currently pre-orders.
Honestly, it looks like Michael Bay’s ‘The Great War’, but seeing a mainstream WWI game is a pleasant surprise.
For the low, low price of $24.99, Bethesda is releasing what they claim is their largest DLC yet, Far Harbor. New locales, new enemies, new weapons, and more.
Far Harbor will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on May 19th.
