8 Minutes Of Prey Gameplay

Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

It may have very little to do with the original Prey, but this re-imagining/reboot/blatant-attempt-to-cash-in-on-an-established-property-via-name-recognition actually looks like a pretty good game.

In fact, it very much reminds me of System Shock. Looking forward to it coming out.

Death Stranding – Trailer 2

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Kojima is a weird dude.

Also, del Toro cameo confirms it: this is totally the Pan’s Labyrinth sequel no one asked for.

Armageddon Gear Beer Bivy

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

It’s rare to see this much awesome packed into 1:51.


DroneShield DroneGun

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

The DroneShield DroneGun sends a targeted signal up to 2km away to disable drones / UAVs. Not available commercially… yet, but in all honesty it probably won’t ever be.


White Rabbit Project

Monday, November 28th, 2016

It’s Mythbusters 2.0 coming soon to a Netflix-enabled device near you.

Fully Functioning Fallout 4 Automatic Laser Rifle

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

Ok, to be fair it’s not “functional” in that it shoots an actual laser projectile, but the barrels (if you can call them that) spin, the muzzle flashes with light, and it makes game-authentic sounds.

If you have the aptitude necessary to make one for yourself, the creator put the plans online here:


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer 3

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Looks pretty.

Bullets vs Propeller In Slow Motion

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

The Slo Mo Guys, in association with (and sponsorship from) EA, produced a video where they recorded slow motion footage of a machine gun and propeller setup. They first recorded footage where the synchronization gear was active, a mechanism which timed a plane-mounted machine gun to fire in-between the arc of a propeller’s blades, making plane-mounted machine guns viable during the Great War. The second bit of footage has the synchronization gear turned off, and it resulted in 4 hits to the propeller blades.

Neat stuff.

Kong Island – Trailer 2

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

Hope it’s better than that Godzilla remake that starred Walter White and Kickass.

Trench Club from Battlefield 1 – MAN AT ARMS feat. Danny Trejo

Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Seems a bit ornate it for a trench club, on the other hand it’s really cool.

The American Dream Trailer

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Looking for a title to justify the outrageous amount of money you spent on your VR headset? Then you might want to take a look at ‘The American Dream’ by Australian indie game developer Samurai Punk.

…Ok, it’s not a killer app for VR platforms, just an absurdist game where you perform everyday tasks, except you’re only able to interact with the game world by shooting at it with your guns. But, hey, dual GI-spec 1911s, right?

The American Dream drops sometime in 2017.

Inside The M4 Carbine

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

A more accurate title would arguably be “Inside The AR-15”, but the base gun’s the same, so it’s a minor nitpick. Plus, that cutout interspersed throughout the footage is really neat.

Lone Wolf – How A Glock Firing Cycle Works

Monday, November 7th, 2016

If you’ve ever wondered how a Glock works during its firing cycle, then Lone Wolf, one of the leading purveyors of after-market Glock parts, has you covered. The above video is a 3D model representation of the Glock’s firing cycle, and it’s pretty comprehensive.

Wonder Woman – Trailer 2

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

DC’s Cinematic Universe, or whatever they’re calling it instead to differentiate themselves from Marvel, has been kinda… not great. So, the question is if Wonder Woman will be the first truly good DC movie, or another critical flop.

I’ve stopped trusting trailers a while ago; they’ve got the technical devilry that made Suicide Squad look appealing, after all.

Wonder Woman drops June 2, 2017.

Action Figure Therapy – Sexy Naked Halloween Costume Contest

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Do I even have to say this is NSFW?

DUSK Reveal Trailer

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

DUSK is a love letter to 90s First Person Shooters like DOOM, BLOOD, Hexen, and Quake, mixing in a heavy, metal-inspired soundtrack with ultra violence, tons of murderous enemies, a healthy mix of deadly weaponry, and retro, 90s-inspired graphics.

It comes out next year.

Adam Savage’s ZF-1 Prop Is Complete

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

The Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies of all time, because it’s a love letter to the kind of SciFi stories you’d see in an issue of Metal Hurlant / Heavy Metal magazine, and because it has a great cast, including Gary Oldman’s Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, and his wonderful multi-purpose armament, the ZF-1 Pod Weapons System.

A weapon so iconic, in fact, that noted prop artist/mythbuster/all around cool guy Adam Savage took a crack at making his own replica, a project years in the making, and I have to say the finished product looks pretty darn great. The original ZF-1 was built around a blank-firing AKS-74U; long story short Adam’s isn’t, but it’s still really cool.

DIY Prop Shop – Evil Dead Chainsaw Hand

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Is it a prequel? Same characters?

Trailer doesn’t reveal any of that, just that the game is going to be damn pretty.

RDR2 dropps Fall 2017

World War NERF

Announcing CN Live Featuring Colion Noir

Saturday, October 15th, 2016


Friday, October 14th, 2016

It’s a movie about this guy, starring a Nicolas Cage who looks to be in great form.

Sign me up.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer 2

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

The story of how the Death Star plans were obtained has been told numerous different ways in the old expanded universe content, but now it’s Disney’s turn to tell the tale, and this time it’s official.

Rogue One drops December 16th.

John Wick: Chapter 2 Trailer

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Now we’ve got some footage to go along with the teaser poster.

That 3-gun training is really paying off for Keanu.

Suicide Squad Extended Cut Announcement Trailer

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Like BvS, Suicide Squad suffered from botched editing for its theatrical release. The ‘Ultimate Cut’ of BvS resolved some ill-explained plotlines and made for a much better movie, so here’s hoping the Extended Cut of Suicide Squad does some of the same when it releases.
