June brought us the wonderful news that LEGO Dimensions — the video game that gives you the perfect excuse to buy more LEGO sets — would be massively expanding with pop culture franchises spanning the past few decades. In the preview we got glimpses of The Goonies, the A-Team, even ET, but we’re finally now getting our first look at Knight Rider.
Video game characters have it easy: they never have to change clothes. Whether they’re saving the world or just catching Pokemon, our heroes — Master Chief, Link, Mario, Samus Aran — are always wearing the same damn thing. But their outfits aren’t always cheap. Master Chief’s get up can cost over a 100 million dollars. Even Link’s elf get up rings up over a thousand bucks. Not everybody can just wear a tie and eat bananas like Donkey Kong.
Video: War is hell. Hellishly buggy, that is, if you take this re-cut trailer for Battlefield 1 as an accurate historical depiction.
Arbitrary code injection is fascinating stuff. Intrepid gamers have discovered hidden glitch worlds, turned Mario into Flappy Bird or performed a standard action so many times that it crashes the game. The original Legend of Zelda is susceptible too — as glitch hunter Sockfolder found out — and executing the following instructions skips past the vast majority of the game’s quest.
We all know the drill. There are three kinds of movies for kids: 1) Ones that are for adults, just as much as kids (Pixar and so on), 2) Ones that adults can get some enjoyment out of, 3) Ones that kids like, but adults will claw their faces off. Ratchet & Clank belongs to the second group, and it’s perfectly fine.
Video: Every weekend should involve a quick game of wall climbing Pong. That is, a game of Pong that is projected onto a rock climbing wall that tracks your body parts as paddles so that the ball reacts appropriately to each hit. It looks fun because you’re actively manoeuvring your body around to smack that ball of light, but also looks so silly because you’re hanging off a freaking wall and could, like, fall off at any time.
We really, really like Logitech’s G gaming gear for PC — its keyboards in particular are top notch both for typing those long boring emails and for smashing out a couple of rounds of CS:GO. While those peripherals are excellent, they’re also expensive. A new line of Prodigy mice, keyboard and headset from the guys at G gives you all the sturdy brightly-coloured Logitech goodness without the painful price tag.
