Video: Some people take their Nerf dart blasters very seriously. There are entire leagues dedicated to running around and blasting fellow players with foam darts — essentially a less painful version of paintball. But what darts are worth arming yourself with? Nerf expert Frank Cooper breaks it down in this exhaustively comprehensive comparison video.


Our ragged group of survivors shifts nervously, ready to cut and run at the first sign of danger. A horde of zombies ambles slowly towards us, a distraction from the lone runners slipping around the sides to try and catch us off guard. "Hold the line!" someone shouts, but we all know that if it came to it, we'd turn on our fellow survivors if it helped us get out alive. This is Zedtown.


Every child and every adult who wants to be a child again loves a good Nerf gun. They're fun to shoot, whether you're playing in your yard or across cubicles, and they're fun to be shot at with, because Nerf guns are mostly harmless. Well, the game done changed. Mark Rober has invented the world's biggest Nerf gun and it is beyond awesomely badass while being totally hilarious.


If you're on Facebook at all, you might have recently seen an event titled 'The Best Nerf War In History'. It has a meagre description, and a few photos of the old military fort at Sydney's Middle Head — although the combination is enticing for anyone with an active imagination. We spoke to the organisers to see how an event that was never meant to happen ended up with over 9000 people keen.


How cool would it be to get 500 people together in an open world environment, arm them with Nerf guns and fill the space with zombies to see who could survive the night? Pretty goddamn cool, in my opinion. This is Zedtown: a 500-player, real world zombie survival game set in the confines of Sydney University, and it's on again.


The sounds of the night ripple through the lining of your tent. It's a cold night, but the skies are clear. Perfect conditions to spot them if they ever break through the tree line across from you. You poke your head out of the flap to scan the terrain. A twig snaps outside to your left. They're coming. You load your clip into the slot in your orange rifle, and pray that it'll be enough to hold them back.


If you're anything like me, you spent the weekend raiding the Big W toy catalogue looking for cheap Nerf guns. Whether you walked away with a foam-firing pistol, bright yellow rifle or clear perspex chain gun, there's still the question of storing your new arsenal. Try this idea from one of our awesome readers: a Nerf gun trophy case.


The weekend's fast approaching, and that means that many of you will have time on your hands. Time, and quite possibly a hankering for a little nefarious Nerf action. Sure, you could go with a boring stock gun, but why not opt for something a little more powerful?


An early lunchtime deal today; Catch Of The Day is holding a flash sale from midday AEST, so I thought I'd get in early to allow you time to register over there if it piques your interest. Amongst the goods they're flogging off (decided by popular vote) are PS3 Slims (bet on the lower storage model) for $199, 3DS for $129 and $5 Nerf Guns. I could go me a $5 Nerf Gun, but something tells me you'll have to be quick with a click to score a bargain.


Father's Day occurs in June in the US, and since the courts won't let you can't take the kids to a strip club like last year, you might as well teach them something about physics and craftsmanship. The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun by Ken Denmead has projects to help even the most irresponsible man bond with his kids.


Nerf guns are fun, but sometimes it's hard to use one without looking like you're at an eight-year-old's birthday party. One toy gun tinkerer, however, made his own - and it's like something out of a Bond flick.
