Halo SkeeBall

0

Halo’s Forge mode is one of those zany things that will never cease to amaze you.  Yes, there has been the more traditional death match maps made, but the video above is a version of Skee Ball, the classic arcade game where you’re not allowed to climb on the ramps. {reddit}

The Art of the Title Screen

0

I may have posted about Naked Jakey before, or I may not have.  I’m too bothered to look up my usual post history.  I found him with his Halo Changed Everything video series. In the above, he goes over the under appreciated world of Video Game title screens.  Seriously, how often do you pay attention … Continued

How LEGO Bricks are Made

I’m sure you’ve seen versions of this before, but never matter, I’m posting the above video because I thought it was fun to watch, and it’s short, and you can spare the time.  Trust me.

The latest game in my favorite PC game franchise has been released.  Rollercoaster Tycoon World.  You can buy it now on Steam, it’s only $34.  That’s not bad, it harks back to the older times when games were cheap.  Hopefully it’s not meant to show it’s quality, as many of the reviews on Steam give … Continued

Secrets of Super Mario 64

0

With the advent of emulators, and being able to mess around with the underlying game code we’re able to learn all sorts of new interesting stuff about games.  I also find it interesting that people spend the time to dissect the game to find these little inconsistencies. One such person is YouTube user UncommentatedPannen, he’s … Continued

A photo posted by Stephen G (@lord.xeon) on Oct 23, 2016 at 4:10pm PDT The Ranges fly a blimp around the inside of the Garden during the intermissions. I didn’t see it drop anything, though other people have said other teams have done similar things and it would drop raffle tickets, or give-aways and stuff. … Continued

More Dominoes

0

Seriously, watching dominoes fall down is incredibly satisfying.  I think it’s a combination of the noise and the colors to be honest.  While the above video isn’t exactly super technical, it’s quite fun to watch.  Especially the stop motion clean up and setup. {Imgur}

Ash’s House

0

Well, it looks like it anyway.  Instagram user Pixelized Creations made this really dang good representation of the generic house from Pokemon complete with a garden, and Ash battling Gary. What’s even better, and somewhat hard to tell from the above angled photo is that it’s a 3-D representation of the scene.  The monochrome colors … Continued

The Book Train

0

Did you know that there’s a book roller coaster/train in The New York Public Library? Me neither!  Apparently it’s a revamping of the old system of convener belts that were used to transfer books around the 8 story building.  It’s either we’re so modern, or wages are so expensive (thanks mandated $15/hr minimum wage), that … Continued

Soothing Dominoes

0

There’s something about watching thousands of dominoes fall down in a choreographed way that is soothing.  I think it’s the dedication to the colors that gets me.  All that time spent getting the hues to line up, especially with the two-toned dominoes, so the setup side is one color, but when knocked down you get … Continued
