Trackmania Halo Edition

0

Reddit user ducain23 posted a track in Halo 5 Forge which reminds me an awful lot of TrackMania.  The dumb reddit video system doesn’t let me embed videos on other places sadly, so you’ll have to go to reddit itself to view the clip, needless to say, it’s pretty cool.  I like the way he’s … Continued

PARKS: The Board game

0

I might be alittle behind on this (the Kickstarter has ended, but was funded to over 2000%), but this looks like a pretty ace game. There have been a few more additions to the National Parks since this was conceived and produced, but that’s the nature of the world, things are constantly changing.  I’m bummed … Continued

This is ridiculous.  Plain old ridiculous.  Apparently it’s some Red Bull event called Crashed Ice.  It is as dangerous as it looks, one of those people broke their tailbone, which is apparently excruciating.  I have no intention of ever trying this.  Watching it on the other hand, I could be for that, maybe. {reddit|YouTube}

Rollercoaster Tycoon – Unreal Style

0

It’s no secret (or it shouldn’t be anyway), that I love Rollercoaster Tycoon.  I spent many hours of my youth building parks.  Sometimes playing the scenarios, oftentimes just screwing around trying to build giant parks.  My favorites were building multiple mile long coasters with dozens of inversions, yet still trying to keep the ratings down … Continued

LEGO Car

That is a life-sized working car built out of LEGOs.  Yes, you read the correctly, life-sized, built from LEGOS.  In fact, it doesn’t even use any glue, all the pieces are being held together by the inherit force of nature that is LEGO.  Based on estimates, this cost about $1 million to make.  Which when … Continued

LEGO Engineering + Science

It’s always fun watching people push LEGO to the limits.  Here you can get a crash course in gear reduction and how to generate torque.  It’s interesting to see the differences in weights that can be lifted.  And it soon becomes apparent that the limitations aren’t in the gearing, or the motor, it’s the other … Continued

RollerCoaster Tycoon Calculator

0

It might be a secret, though it’s not anymore, I love RollerCoaster Tycoon. It’s my favorite computer game. I’ve spent countless hours playing the game, beating the scenarios, making my own crazy parks. I’ve hit the object limit in a park before and it sucks when you have a really ace park. OpenRCT2 aims to … Continued

Why aren’t you watching the MarbleLympics?

0

Event 9 just went live and if anything, these games have proven to be a shocker!  As much of a fan of real life curling I am, I couldn’t watch the Marblelympics version.  It was just too boring.  I’m sorry. However, the other 8 events are quite engaging, you should skip around the playlist, watch … Continued

Cauldron

0

Did you watch the Opening Ceremony of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games yesterday?  I watched most of it.  Unfortunately I was not up early enough to enjoy it live.  It was quite entertaining though.  I did very much enjoy the lighting of the cauldron.  In honor of the Games, watch the lighting of the Olympic … Continued

2018 Olympics

0

Are about to start! Are you ready? You’ll have to be up in the early morning this Friday to watch the opening ceremony live.  That is if you can find it streaming somewhere online (if you’re in America).  Dang stupid NBC is putting it on a 10 hour tape delay for “prime-time”  Oh boy I … Continued
