Get Ready, A Minecraft Book Is Being Written By World War Z's Max Brooks

A whole series of Minecraft novels are reportedly set to hit shelves, with the endeavour kicked off with a book by Max Brooks, author of World War Z. And why not? A giant, successful game is obviously ripe for being adapted into other media, and Minecraft is already set to be a movie released in 2019. Hopefully, the book won’t take that long.


Ratchet & Clank Will Keep Your Kids Distracted, And You Won't Claw Your Face Off

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.


Playing Pong While Climbing A Wall Looks Like A Lot Of Stupid Fun

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.


Captain America: Civil War, Re-Imagined As The Marvel Vs Capcom Sequel We've Always Wanted

Video: It is a crying shame that we probably won’t see another entry in the Marvel vs Capcom fighting game series for quite some time. But while we dream of that, at least this clever edit of footage from Captain America: Civil War can let us ponder what might have been.


Not All Monopolies Are Ugly

It’s not cool when a giant corporation uses unfair business practices to dominate a market, but other monopolies aren’t so bad. It’s surprisingly enjoyable to use a Monopoly to your advantage when playing the classic board game, particularly when the board features the vibrant bold artwork of Romero Britto.


Elite Force Is Still The Greatest Star Trek Video Game

Star Trek‘s ideals don’t sit all that well with your average video game. Trek‘s idealistic view of the future mostly dealt with conflict through discussion rather than liberal phaser blasts to the face, and video games are usually the other way around. That’s why a first-person shooter in the Star Trek universe should never have worked. Until it did.


iPad Games Are Better Than Sedatives For Kids In Surgery

Allowing children to use iPads to distract them before surgery requiring general anaesthesia is as effective at lowering their anxiety as conventional sedatives, new research has shown.

Not only that, but the parent’s anxiety is lowered too — and the anaesthesia works better.


Take A Trippy Ride Down Minecraft's Acid Interstate

Climb aboard kids — it’s time to tune in, drop out, and have your mind expanded.



Why Settle For 30 Games When This Tiny Aluminium NES Clone Plays All Of Them

Despite a $US500 ($655)+ price tag, the Analogue Nt, a gorgeous NES clone made from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminium, has been continuously selling out since it was first released back in 2014. If you keep missing out, you can always grab one off eBay for $5000, or wait until January when a smaller, cheaper, improved version will go on sale.
