Fox released this official prologue for the upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’, which not only established the rapport of the Covenant team, but also serves as a nice nod to the original Chestburster scene from Alien.

Mechanical engineers at Brigham Young University created a man-portable and lightweight bulletproof shield that was inspired by origami. The shield is flat when stowed, but quickly folds up to an encompasing shield made of 12 layers of Kevlar fabric.
In testing the barrier was capable of stopping loads upwards of .44 Magnum, making it roughly equivalent to Level IIIA body armor in protective capability.
While there’s likely still some development to undergo before this becomes a fully-realized product, it shows great promise, especially if the positive response from the Law Enforcement agents testing the device is anything to go by.
Xbox Ahoy continues his iconic weapon series with the M60 GPMG.
This time, the Man At Arms: Reforged crew recreates the Viking Dane Axe from the upcoming game ‘For Honor’.
YouTube channel Miller Knives shows off how they create a Micro Karambit knife.
You can check out more of their builds on their channel.
The first Halo Wars was an Xbox 360-exclusive RTS designed specifically for play on a console; it wasn’t bad. In advertising its sequel, Microsoft has a real winner of a commercial in its hands. The second one, involving who gets the armrest on an airplane, is also pretty funny.
Super Hero movies have become the norm, with Marvel’s meticulous planning of their shared universe films culminating in the eventual release of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. To hype up the film, Marvel released this behind-the-scenes teaser on what’s to come.
Kinda wish Justice League has this level of forethought.
We continue the series of John Wick related posts with this video from 5.11 Tactical showing off some of the training Taran Tactical did with Keanu Reeves to prepare him for his role as the titular character in John Wick Chapter 2.
What if John Wick was the dog?
That’s pretty much this.
Yea, Superbowl, go Patriots, etc. What was really worth the watch was the trailers for upcoming flicks like ‘Logan’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2’, and the new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film staring Javier Bardem as an undead pirate. Among those was a teaser for the second season of ‘Stranger Things’, appropriately called ‘Stranger Things 2’, AKA that series that’s a love letter to Spielberg 80’s movies with a sweet synth soundtrack.
Look forward to Stranger Things 2 coming out this Halloween.
600 years after the events of the original Mass Effect trilogy, play as not-Sheppard as he/she explores a new galaxy with virtually the same collection of alien species in the last game, while befriending a new alien species and fighting another alien species.
Andromeda drops March 21st.
Unfortunate that the actual T-800 series wasn’t constructed of cardboard, since a light rain or some tactical application of fire would have greatly hastened the eventual human resistance victory.
So, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was released today. It’s different than the recent games, but pretty darn good.
In a world with very few mutants left, Old Man Logan and Older Man Prof. X must escort X-23, a female clone of Wolvie and who’s creation was totally hinted at in the post-credits scene from X-Men: Apocalypse, to safety from very bad men.
Oh, and it’s R-rated.
YouTube channel Rulof Maker made a working air rifle inspired by the ‘Tihar’ from the Metro series of video games.
Holy marketing cross-overs, Batman!
This commercial from Chevy depicts LEGO Batman’s Batmobile as a vehicle under their lineup, a parody of their recent string of (annoying) focus group commercials.
If I had $48 million lying around, and this was real, I’d buy one.
I wonder how effective these blades could be in an actual CQB scenario.
Take a look at the video above, where YouTuber AstonishingStudios creates a replica of the NERF Maverick REV-6 Blaster, entirely of LEGO pieces. While that’s impressive enough, the resulting model not only actually fires, but fires real NERF foam darts.

It’s inventive, and it has ‘gun’ in its name, so I’m obligated to write about it. What it is, is the PFM-A5 paper airplane gun, a motorized gun which is capable of manufacturing and firing paper airplanes. It loads from a reward paper tray, and sports a fire rate of up to 120 planes/min.

YouTube Channel ‘Smarter Every Day‘ made up a video testing whether a .22 bullet was capable of shattering a Prince Rupert’s Drop, and recorded it a 150,000 fps using a high-speed camera.
Spoiler: the drop breaks, but it’s more to do with the resulting vibration caused by the bullet hitting the drop rather than the actual impact from the bullet.
Interesting, ain’t it?
YouTube channel Looper goes over the various scenes from the recently-released Rogue One that appeared in the trailer, but were missing from the theatrical release due to the reported reshoot.
This is how you make an Alien film, or at least a really good trailer for an Alien film.
Alien: Covenant drops May 19th, 2017.
