Gather, weary travelers, and rest your heads in the Kingdom of Galekin, a fantasy world created whole-cloth by Minecraft enthusiast Linard. It contains multiple cities, locations and natural formations, and unlike some other fantasy locations created in Minecraft, this one comes entirely from Linard’s own imagination. That is pretty impressive, especially when you consider he didn’t have photo reference or artwork to draw from in creating his world. Take video tour of Galekin below. [click to continue…]
At this point you are probably very aware of Samsung’s woes regarding the Galaxy Note 7 and it’s tendency to uh…violently explode. The phones have caused a great deal of destruction, which is no laughing matter—but the fact that someone added it to GTA 5 as a bomb mod is probably chuckle-worthy for even the most die-hard Android fan. See the mod in action in the video below. [click to continue…]
Sideshow is known for their collectible statues, apparel, and art prints, but now they’re attempting to launch their first video game: Court of the Dead: Underworld Rising on Kickstarter.
Over the ages, Death has secretly filled the Underworld with souls in an effort to build an army of liberated “mourners.” As his latest recruit, it is time to master your newfound powers and help the Underworld prepare to confront Heaven and Hell. Join Death and his Court of the Dead in the fight for your afterlife.
Underworld Rising is a role-playing video game set in the dark fantasy world of the Court of the Dead, created by Tom Gilliland of Sideshow. In this richly-illustrated 2D environment, you will join a faction and travel the Underworld, building an army of collectible followers. Journey on epic quests and challenge other players to combat in order to grow your legend and play your part in the Underworld’s bid to Rise, Conquer, Rule!
Sounds fun to me. Who wouldn’t want to have a legion of followers and fight both Heaven and Hell to save everyone’s soul? I mean really. Learn more about the project in the video below. [click to continue…]
If there was ever a TV show that felt right recreated as an 8-bit game, it’s Stranger Things. CineFix did their 8-Bit Cinema thing in the video below and, thankfully, it looks a lot better than E.T. was on the Atari. [click to continue…]
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…]
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…]
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…]
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.
