Watch: Star Wars – The Force Awakens Official Trailer

I guess this post needs no further explanation or detailing. If you missed Star Wars: The Force Awakens Official Trailer aired over on ESPN during the Monday Night Football, here it is. So how do we felt after watching it? Emotional is the word, way too emotional for my liking, and kind of too ‘messy’. To be honest, not something I would expect from one of my favorite sci-fi franchise. The focus here is clearly Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren, but we shan’t say further and leave it to you to enjoy or critic the trailer, which you can find embedded below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Theatrical Poster, Official Trailer and Pre-sale Tickets

Two months. That’s how long to the most anticipated movie of the year, well, at least for fans of Star Wars. At this point, it won’t be a surprise to the see the theatrical poster, which Lucasfilm has officially unveiled yesterday. But that’s not all. The Disney-own film studio has more news that will set the Star Wars fever in motion. But first, a little something about the poster. In the tradition since Episode I, the latest Star Wars instalment’s poster also plays on the lighting, but unlike Episode I-III’s theatrical posters, where it weighted heavily on the dark side with its orange/red mood, Star Wars: The Force Awakens theatrical poster showcases an awakening of the dark side and the light. Overall, it looks a lot less gloomy. Have a look after the post. Continue reading Star Wars: The Force Awakens Theatrical Poster, Official Trailer and Pre-sale Tickets

Jason Voorhees Will Soon Live Again… in a Slasher Multiplayer Game

Can a slasher flick be adapted into a game? I guess we will find out soon enough – if Gun Media have its way. The game studio has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Friday the 13th into the gaming world, backed by several ‘horror legends’, including the original flick’s director, Sean S. Cunningham and special effects makeup artist, Tom Savini, Kane Hodder who was ’Jason Voorhees’ of Friday the 13th Part 7-10 and the original score composer, Harry Mandfredini. Officially dubbed Friday the 13th: The Game, Gun Media’s bold undertaking is a third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer game where you can choose to play as Jason Voorhees who has only one agenda on his mind: to stalk camp counselors (and eventually, brutally killing them, obviously), or as one of the seven control camp counselors attempting to survive the night.

Hyundai Joins Playstation’s Vision Gran Turismo with 871HP Hydrogen Fuel-cell Concept Race Car

Thanks to Vervid Vertical Video App, Vertical Videos Are Here to Stay

Whenever there’s a video taken vertically (aka portrait), it is going to frack from the online communities, but duo John Whaley and Daniel Proksch, thinks otherwise. They think vertical video “can be immersive and look great,” adding that “it (vertical video) needs a space of its own.” Spurred by the anti-vertical video PSA, such as the one by Glove and Boot’s “Vertical Video Syndrome,” Whaley and Proksch sets out to create the first ever vertical video app, called Vervid. Yup. That’s right. Vervid wants you to explore the world of vertical videos. Continue reading Thanks to Vervid Vertical Video App, Vertical Videos Are Here to Stay

SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo is SRT 20 Years into the Future, Packs a Mind-blowing 2,590HP

In the virtual world, anything goes and while 2,000+ HP seems like more than mere ridiculous (or insane, some says) number for a motor vehicle, it is totally sound and acceptable in the virtual racing world. Case in point: the SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo, the latest addition to Gran Turismo 6’s growing portfolio of Vision Gran Turismo concept cars conjured up by leading automakers, which happens to pack an unholy 2,590 horsepower. A product of Street and Racing Technology, the single-seat SRT Tomahawk is a collaborative effort with Polyphony Digital and is SRT’s vision into 20 years. Three models will be offered in the game: ’S’, ‘GTS-R’ and X. The latter is the range-topper, making the said 2,590 ponies from its V10 powertrain. ’S’, by the way, is the ‘entry level’ SRT Tomahawk, while the ‘GTS-R’ is the racing variant and the ‘X’ is what SRT called “the experimental technology ultimate version,” or as we like to call the insane version. Continue reading SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo is SRT 20 Years into the Future, Packs a Mind-blowing 2,590HP

This is What Star Wars BB8 Droid Would Look Like if Jony Ive Had a Say

JJ Abrams sort of surprised the world when he announced that BB8 droid is actually a real robot and not CGI. That’s the Star Wars’s Universe where Apple doesn’t exist, but what if Apple did exist in the Galaxy Far, Far away? And what if Mr. Jony Ive, the design legend of our time (thanks in part to Steve Jobs, really), had a say in the droid designs? Well, this is what it will look like as imagined by designer Martin Hajek, complete with built-in projector, circular touch screen interface and all, and it will be available in, not surprisingly, silver, gold and space grey. Though no mention if that “projector” is of the holographic variety that’s staple to the Star Wars Universe. Continue reading This is What Star Wars BB8 Droid Would Look Like if Jony Ive Had a Say
