This montage video created by RedKeyMon shows some of the unbelievable stunts that you can pull off in Grand Theft Auto V if you’ve got the skill. There are planes, cars, motorcycles, and even jet skis doing the impossible. What about the laws of physics, you ask? Since when did laws of any kind mean a darn thing in this game?

If you’re a gamer then you know that there are times when the dice love you and times when the dice hate you. Brian T. Huff has created a series of posters that show what happens when you’re rolling Natural 20s and killing your foes. They also show what happens when you get those pesky Natural 1s and die a horrible death as your buddies laugh so hard they fall out of their chairs.

Playing Mario Kart you can’t help but wish that you could actually drive one, and now you can thanks to Razor. This is the Razor Cray Cart XL (a follow-up to a smaller version they made for kids) and it’s built for grown-ups because kids shouldn’t be the only ones who get to have fun drifting all over the place. It was made to handle a 6’3″ 250-pound rider but has been tested up to 300 pounds. It will retail for $800 when it goes on sale in December, just in time for Christmas.

This is all in good fun, but at some point it’s all going to go south for the guy behind the camera. Apparently, he has a lot of time on his hands while he’s at work and takes every opportunity to scare the daylights out of his coworker by screaming Street Fighter quotes. One of these days, he’ll get his and I hope someone has a camera ready in landscape mode.

Self-taught engineer Ed Zarick has created a portable version of the PS4 game console that can be yours for $1,395. He calls is it the PlayBook 4 and it’s basically the console housed in a 3D printed case that also holds a 22″ 1080p display. You can get it in either black and blue or white and black.

Nintendo has announced some interesting news about Link’s upcoming appearance in Mario Kart 8. As you can see from the above pic, Link is getting a motorcycle (dubbed the “Master Cycle”).

Nintendo also mentioned that there might be some Zelda-themed racetracks in the game too.

Karl Jobst really shows off his gaming chops by beating three classic Nintendo 64 games simultaneously in just 51 minutes. The games are Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Goldeneye 007, all of which Jobst loves and has spent countless hours playing just for fun. This time, it was all about speed, and even Jobst seems pretty amazed at the end.

This is an incredibly detailed version of Midgar from Final Fantasy VII created entirely in Minecraft. It took two whole years to build by modder Killerx20. That’s understandable since it measures a massive 1290 x 1290 blocks.

“As a lot are probably wondering,” Killerx20 writes, “yes, more then 85% of this build WAS indeed hand placed. The only things that were not are the outer plates, tower, and reactors BUT that doesn’t mean they were completed when imported, they were basically detail-less empty shells and I wanted it that way so everything on/inside them had to be hand placed for optimal detail.”

You can download the map here and spend some time roaming around Midgar.

The video you’re about to see features the unboxing of a 1993 deck of Magic the Gathering cards. The rare card was always on top of the decks back then, so he flips the deck over and starts from the other side to create a little suspense. He finally gets to that rare card at about the 8:15 mark and it turns out to be a Black Lotus card that’s worth up to $30,000.

Needless to say, he promptly loses his mind.

Only 1100 of these cards were printed in total with one selling last year for $27K. Honestly, I’m surprised that he kept it together this much since I’d probably be running around the room screaming my head off.

You may have noticed we’re fans of all things Firefly around here and we’ve definitely been keeping tabs on Firefly Online. Plus, I used to work for QMx, so I’m loving watching the game come to life personally.

This weekend at NYCC, FFO had a panel and, not only did they give updates on the game, but they debuted video of the 3D Environment Engine.

The FFO development blog had this to say:

At last night’s Firefly Online Panel at New York Comic Con, we revealed for the first time a sample of what the FFO procedural engine’s real power will be. What you’re seeing in the video below is *not* a cinematic. It is a live recording of the Firefly Online 3D Environment Engine at work, which creates the encounter maps for the game.

This brief “walkthrough” of a procedurally-generated derelict ship should give a sense for the level of detail Firefly Online will offer in both encounter maps and player avatars.

The game will have many kinds of encounters for players to enjoy, from desert wildernesses to floating cities to giant automated ships you can freely explore. When it comes to derelicts, you never know what might have gotten to that tasty bit of salvage before you, and what might still be there, waiting for you to drop by.

It would be a mistake to assume Firefly Online is only horses, spaceships and sidearms. There are things out there in the Black that you should sincerely hope you never run into.

Personally, I’m liking what I’m seeing so far. I’m curious to know what other fans think.
