Big Trouble in Little China Vinyl Soundtrack

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Tomorrow at Noon (Central Time), Mondo Tees will be releasing a newly-pressed Vinyl of the ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ soundtrack. This is the first time in over 30 years that this album will be available on vinyl, and if it’s anything like the other Carpenter score releases from Mondo (or, generally, most of their pressings), it’ll be gone in a flash.

If you haven’t seen ‘Big Trouble’, it defies genre a bit, but in essence it’s a movie about a bumbling, would-be Western Action Movie Hero ending up as a sidekick in a Eastern martial arts movie with a healthy dose of mysticism, and the humor of seeing him out of his element.

SHAZAM! Official Trailer

Saturday, July 21st, 2018

SDCC 2018 is currently ongoing, so we’re getting all the new movie and television show announcements. One of the standouts is the new SHAZAM! trailer, which actually looks like a fun comic movie, instead of the edgy grittiness of the Zack Snyder-developed DC Extended Universe films.

UNCHARTED – Live Action Fan Film

Friday, July 20th, 2018

Director Allan Ungar created this fan film based on game developer Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series. Staring Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake, it does a good job of emulating the tone and humor of the games, while also featuring an action sequence reminiscent of the third person gameplay.

Soda Can AR Lower Receiver

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Machining an 80% AR receiver can be a fairly involved process, depending on your own availability of tools and machining experience. YouTuber GunCraft101 took making an AR lower more than a bit further, and sand cast and machined his own receiver, in the process using over 200 aluminum beverage cans. Noting that aluminum cans are typically a blend of magnesium and aluminum, with other trace metals, various industrial chemicals and additives, and a different grade of aluminum than those used for typical AR receivers, this is best observed as a curiosity rather than emulated. All the same, it really shows that a bit of technical know how, experimentation, and effort can combine to form some pretty cool results.

MANDY – Official Trailer

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.

It’s described as an action horror film. It looks like a trippy, bloody grindhouse film, and it stars Nicholas Cage. Sign me up.

MANDY premiers in theaters September 14th.

Disney Imagineering Has Created Autonomous Robot Stunt Doubles

Friday, June 29th, 2018

First Disney inadvertently creates the ultimate urban camo colors just so they can hide utility doors and building from guests at their parks, and now they’re making “autonomous robot stunt doubles”, which as we know will translate to parkour-enabled robot death squads when Skynet finally comes about.

DARPA GXV-T Demonstration Of Hybrid Wheel-Track

Monday, June 25th, 2018

As part of DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program (GXV-T), a team from Carnegie Mellon University National Robotics Engineering Center created a hybrid wheel-track which can configure between a traditional round wheel and a triangular, tank-like track in seconds. The intent behind this design is to allow optimal mobility between hard and soft terrain as required, while still inside the same vehicle.

The Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program itself was launched to find ways to “improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor.”

World of Warplanes: Bruce Dickinson Diaries and “Aces High” Tribute

Monday, June 18th, 2018

June 18, 2018 — World of Warplanes is proud to announce that Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson will host 10 online educational warplanes diaries. Launching today on Youtube this free-to-view series is set to be released weekly on the World of Warplanes official portal and YouTube channel across June, July and August, alongside an exclusive WoWP video tribute to the classic Iron Maiden song Aces High.

As an avid enthusiast of military aviation, pilot, and supporter of World of Warplanes’ dedication to historical accuracy, Bruce has recorded “The Bruce Dickinson Warplanes Diaries” about classic WW2 fighter and bomber aircraft such as the Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane, and Messerschmitt Bf 109. As an extra treat for Maiden and Warplanes fans, WoWP have created, with many of the graphics from their in-game engine and some classic archive footage, a tribute video clip to the epic Aces High music video. Featuring many of the Battle of Britain planes that Bruce profiles in the series, viewers can see the machines really brought to life.

“We are all delighted that Bruce has brought his enthusiasm and expertise to World of Warplanes with these informative videos which he has delivered in his own inimitable style,” said Al King, Global Marketing Director at Wargaming, “As well as the diaries and the Aces High tribute, we are also introducing a renovated hangar subtly branded with iconic Iron Maiden imagery. It’s unlike anything the game’s ever had before and we hope Maiden fans will have fun spotting the various Easter eggs hidden throughout!”

Pretty descriptive title, to be honest.

DOOM: Eternal – E3 Teaser Trailer

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

So the new Fallout may be an online-only disappointment, but at least we got this cool, pre-rendered trailer for DOOM: Eternal, the sequel to 2016’s DOOM reboot. Like the original DOOM 2, this game apparently takes place on Earth, after a demonic invasion. The developers promised a more powerful DOOM Slayer, as well as twice as many demons; you can notice the return of some classic enemies in this trailer, including the Pain Elemental, Aracnotron, and Archvile.

Stay tuned for a gameplay reveal of DOOM: Eternal at the upcoming QuakeCon 2018 on August 10th.

Tested – Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: 1000 Shot NERF Blaster

Friday, June 8th, 2018

It seems like the Rival series blasters are the ones to build mods for, because here’s another capacity mod, this time courtesy of special effects designer and former co-host of Mythbusters Adam Savage. Within a single day, Adam not only creates a slick-looking, if bulky, 1000-shot magazine/hopper, but also installs a bipod and an offset electronic optic. It’s honestly like a NERF Bren, turned up to 11.

You can check out more of Tested’s videos on their YouTube channel.

Truly, Tremors is an American movie classic.

Miller Knives – Forging A Karambit From A Drill Bit

Friday, June 1st, 2018

YouTube channel Miller Knives has released this video detailing a (fast forward) process for forging a karambit knife from an old drill bit. A bit of a warning: there’s a very sudden ad from about one minute in to about 1 minute, 45 seconds.

You can check out more of Miller Knives’ creations via their YouTube channel here.

Fallout 76 Teaser Trailer

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

A new Fallout title that’s not a mainline title in the series, and a teaser that provides very little info. A rumor is that the title will feature an online component, multiplayer, a renewed focus on the settlement building mechanic from Fallout 4. It’s even been called a Fallout themed Rust (an online player-versus-player survival video game) clone, according to some sources.

Of course, we’ll have to wait until this year’s E3 to see how much of these rumors are true.

TANK – A Short Film By Stu Maschwitz

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Battlezone was a bit before my time, however I still played it extensively thanks to console ports of arcade games. Stu Maschwitz, of film effects software company Red Giant, created this short film called TANK, with visuals very much inspired by games like Battlezone. The retro aesthetic and great synth soundtrack make it a pretty good watch.

You can check out more of Red Giant’s work at their YouTube channel here.

Battlefield V Reveal Trailer

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

I’m not quite sure what this is supposed to be, except for extremely historically inaccurate, and absurdly chaotic. This anon pretty much sums it up:

Battlefield V launches October 10th.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops IIII Multiplayer Reveal Trailer

Friday, May 18th, 2018

In an attempt to keep up with popular trends, this year’s CoD is featuring a battle royale-style gamemode called Blackout, where a bunch of players hunt each other down on a massive map (look up PBUG or Fortnite videos for a general idea on how this concept works). The standard multiplayer elements do seem to be returning, however they’re completely omitting the traditional single player campaign for this one. Like most who have played CoD games in the past, I’ve spent way more time in MP than playing the campaign, but it still feels kinda wrong they’re omitting a story mode from a mainline release.

It’ll still do huge sales numbers, because it’s Call of Duty.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII releases on October 12, 2018.

The Predators – Teaser Trailer

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

It’s kinda funny: Shane Black was in the first Predator, now he’s written and is directing the latest movie in the franchise.

The Predators premiers in theaters September 14, 2018.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Official Trailer #2

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018
