Badass Metal Hybrid Pokémon

untitled-10

Describing themselves as “a visual arts collective set in the Neo Terra Universe”, Frame Wars have created these amazing Metal Hybrid Pokémon concepts. Pokémon with metal armor and advanced weaponry, as though a biological creature that can literally kill you with its brain isn’t quite extreme enough. But they do look positively stellar, and we wanted to share them with you here. So we did! Aren’t we nice? Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

A Glorious Dice Collection

dice-collection

Well, glorious unless you have OCD. You could spend hours pouring over dr_lugh‘s dice collection for issues—issues like the one r_kay noticed and commented on with the appropriate level of outrage:

THE TRANSLUCENT GREEN SET IN THE MIDDLE ROW JUST RIGHT OF CENTER HAS THE D12 AND D20 SWITCHED!

Plus the dice around the edge aren’t even all the way ’round. Aggghhhhhhhh!!!!

If you want a PC case that looks like it fell out of the incredibly stylized world of the Borderlands series, Ford Ashton’s your man (you can contact him for commissions). He built this custom case as a gift for his girlfriend after her previous PC bit the dust a few weeks back. Right now it’s just the case – there’s no hardware inside – but that’ll come soon.

We reckon it looks Claptrapular. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

pikapool

You know you’ve done a pretty awesome Deadpool Pikachu mashup when Ryan Reynolds shares it.

Pikapool was created by Ramtraz who says it was modeled, textured and mapped in ZBrush, rendered in KeyShot, then edited in Photoshop.

He also did another render in a different color, which you can check out below. Needless to say, this would make for an amazing vinyl figure. [click to continue…]

Instead of having strippers or a raucous weekend in Vegas, Redditor Ben Brophy aka bentrophy decided to invite his friends over to build and play a giant game of Catan.

It may not be your usual bachelor party, but we like where their heads are at. See the game come together in the gallery below. [click to continue…]

witcher-stamp

Poland is very proud of The Witcher, and rightly so – the series has three bestselling entries across multiple platforms, and has taken the world by storm. Only fitting, then, that Poland would choose to honor it the same way America celebrates its Star Treks and Britain its Doctors Who – commemorative stamps. Specifically, a stamp featuring Geralt of Rivia and branded with The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (and not Wilf Hunt, as I had originally typed, though I’d probably play a game called Wilf Hunt).

The Poctza Polska, Poland’s state-run postal service, issued the stamp this month. It’s a 6-zloty denomination – roughly $1.55. Not in Poland? Don’t worry – eBay sellers are already listing the stamp—at a premium of course.

elderwood-games-scroll-and-codex

You may be familiar with those amazing spellbook gaming boxes from Elderwood Academy, but soon this gorgeous Scroll & Codex will be added to the lineup.

The Scroll & Codex is a dice tower with a matching rollable tray that can be kept inside the tower when not in use. Right now, they’re in the prototype stage, but they’ll be launching a Kickstarter later this month and you’ll be able to pledge and get one of these beauties. Check out more pics in the gallery below. [click to continue…]

untitled-3

A live-action version of the beloved video game series Monster Hunter is in the works, if Capcom producer Ryozo Tsujimoto’s statements at the Tokyo Game Show are to be believed.

We’ve no further information – no release date, no casting information, not even any indication of which studio is working on it. Still, though – a Monster Hunter movie! Live-action! Color us cautiously optimistic. Then again, video game movies have been known to disappoint. Just a wee bit.

name-of-the-wind-monopoly

Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle series is fantastic. As happens with all fantastic things, somebody has made a Monopoly version of it. That’s just how the world works.

Board squares were designed by Reddit user AnUnbiasedSandwich and the board was assembled by Tor.

Much like the trilogy, the game is still incomplete. AUS hopes to digitize the Chance/Community Chest cards and currency at some point in the future but, of course, you could always make your own if you wanted to try and play.

dishonored-pops

Another day, another set of Funko Pops you’ll want to buy. Is there a 12 step program for Funko addiction? I may need that.

Five new Pops are coming for Dishonored 2: Emily, Corvo, and the Outsider will be available everywhere. The unmasked Emily is a Target exclusive, while the unmasked Corvo will be available only at GameStop. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
