Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Theme Park Sim Turned Into Mobile Game

Good news, fans of the original RollerCoaster Tycoon! A new RollerCoaster Tycoon mobile game is out, blending the classic Windows PC game with its sequel RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. Aptly dubbed RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, this real-time theme-park sim is now on Google Play store as well as Apple Appstore, priced at $5.99. Sadly and not surprisingly, it is not a free-to-download. You have to pay upfront for the game, but we suspect fans who are huge on nostalgia probably won’t mind paying. And if you think 5.99 is the be all and end all, well, it is not. Continue reading Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Theme Park Sim Turned Into Mobile Game

Watch Star Wars Speeder Bike Chase Played Out In Real Life With Jetovators

Guess what? The Speeder Bike featured in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi exists! Yes! Here on Earth! Ok, we all know that a Speeder Bike is scientifically not possible with today’s technology, but thanks to the water-powered Jetovator we saw four years ago, it is sort of a reality now and thus, allowing Devin Supertramp and his team to recreate the Speeder Bike chase scene fairly accurately – except that, this entire ‘remake’, or real-life Speeder Bike battle, have to be played out over a river because, Jetovator. Hmmm, I don’t recall Endor has any river at all. Continue reading Watch Star Wars Speeder Bike Chase Played Out In Real Life With Jetovators

Artificial Human Teeth-covered Suit Is Truly A Stuff Of Nightmares

We have seen our fair share of ‘disgusting’ costumes, but for some reason, this purported prop from Syfy’s Channel Zero TV series, a suit covered in its entirety with artificial human teeth, is unexplainably nauseating. It far surpasses the grotesque level which the William Birkin Stage 1 Transformation cosplay suit has set. Well, at least, William Birkin Stage 1 Transformation cosplay suit is awesome while being grotesque at the same time. The teeth-covered suit, or prop if you like, is actually the horror anthology TV series’ The Tooth Child (played by Cassandra Consiglio), which was kind of an iteration of Tooth Fairy (of sort).

Spaceship Earth At Epcot Turned Into Death Star With Working Super Laser

In a nutshell, the soon-to-hit-theater Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about how the Rebel sniffed out Death Star’s weakness that lead up to Luke and the gang destroying it in A New Hope and so, what could be a better way to promote the movie than recreating a Death Star right here on Planet Earth? Ok, technically, Death Star is a lot bigger than Earth could hold, but anyways, here it is, the Spaceship Earth at Epcot, transformed to look like the giant Death Star – complete with the much feared planet obliterating Super Laser – the main arsenal of the moon-size space station.

Buy A Resident Evil 7 Collector’s Edition, Get A Mansion That Plays Music

Sounds like a super deal right? Well, no. The ‘mansion’ that comes with the Resident Evil 7 biohazard Collector’s Edition is not a real residence which you can reside. Even if it was real, I am sure it does come with a horde of undead, which may not be a good idea. Anyways, this $179.99 package comes with a 8-inch replica of the Louisiana plantation mansion featured in the game. While it can’t let you in due to the size, it can, however, spin a tune and so, yes, it is a music box of sort that appears to play only one song – the game’s version of Go Tell Aunt Rhody. Continue reading Buy A Resident Evil 7 Collector’s Edition, Get A Mansion That Plays Music

Forza 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Gets Custom Livery To Mark Xbox 15 Years

Forza fans take note. Microsoft and Forza is celebrating Xbox 15th anniversary with a couple of goodies for you. For starter, all players will receive a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor draped in a custom livery celebrating Xbox’s 15 years – that’s the virtual truck you see above. Pretty dope, right? And why wouldn’t it be? A free digital vehicle is always welcome, though we must say the livery leaves much to desire. I mean, it is okay looking, but personally, I am not a fan of the green/black design. But hey, it is free and so, what’s there to complain about? Continue reading Forza 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Gets Custom Livery To Mark Xbox 15 Years

VR Games That Uses Smartphones As Controllers Are Not For Everyone

If you have played VR games before, you will find that you are actually quite ‘helpless’ in the sense that you are not in control with your hands. While it seems that’s how it is for now, a Philippine-based mobile apps and games developer, KLab Cyscorpions, beg to differ. The outfit has launched three VR mobile games that will allow your hands to take part in the game, but there’s a catch here: you will need more than one smartphone to enjoy this industry’s first. The three games are Road KillZ, a drive-the-car-to-kill-zombies driving game, RoarZ VR, a first-person-shooter game with the goal of, you guessed it, eliminating zombies, and finally, there’s the sports simulation game called Headshot VR where head butting incoming soccer ball is what you need to do.

We See A Tint Of The Fifth Element Vibe In Luc Besson’s New Sci-Fi Flick

As you may have already known, we don’t normally take up an entire post to talk about a movie trailer unless it is really, really a huge deal and today, the huge deal is upon as and this ‘huge deal’ is Luc Besson’s much anticipated sci-fi flick, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Ever since The Fifth Element dropped back in 1997, it forever changed how we looked at sci-fi movies. It became the benchmark of sci-fi movies and it was also a movie that deeply ingrained in us the exciting (or not, depending on your state of mind) prospect about the future where humans and aliens interaction is a commonplace and also, awesome flying cars.

Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record

Last year, Intel made history by putting 100 light drones into the night sky, dancing to a live orchestra and in the process, set a world record for most UAVs airborne simultaneously. Rather than holding on to the record and waiting for someone else to break it, the chip maker sets out to erase its own record by outdoing itself again but this time, with 500 drones specifically designed for light shows which, together with new algorithms and optimized software, to result in another mind-blowing, breathtaking choreographed light show. Naturally, this amazing feat wiped out the company’s own record, setting a new world record. Continue reading Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record
