Gamer Creates A Haunting But Visually Spectacular Virtual Aliens Thrill Ride

Aliens is one of the pop culture phenomena of the 70s and it is a wonder why there isn’t an official Aliens-themed thrill ride. Perhaps, the theme is a little too dark for commercial success? I don’t know. Whatever it is, it does not stop YouTuber Hin Nya, who appears to be a huge fan of Aliens of Japanese descent, from creating one, but virtually, of course, using a steam game, a theme park simulator called Planet Coaster by Frontier Developments.

Tamagotchi, the digital pet that took the world by storm (well, kind of) was released 21 years ago in Japan and 20 years ago, in 1997, to the rest of the world. I am not sure the allure of this virtual pet thing, but it was somewhat a huge hit two decades ago. At least it was huge enough that even my ex-girlfriend had one (which I need help to take care, btw). Anyways, to mark the 20th year, Bandai Namco is not only re-releasing an updated Tamagotchi, but it is also going the mobile route with a smartphone and tablet app version called My Tamagotchi Forever. Well, forever only if you keep a look out for it cos’ while on the mobile platform, this digital pet of yours will still need to be fed, bathed, and loved, or it will say sayonara to you.

Jurassic World Game Lets You Build And Manage A Dinosaur Theme Park

2015 Jurassic World was quite a movie, but like the previous installments, it had its fair share of frustrating moments brought about by the stupidity of those managing the park.

Real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy Wearable Is Making A Limited Time Comeback

Sometime, a missed opportunity may not be a bad thing at all. Such is in the case of the real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy we first saw last year. This post-apocalypse smartwatch of sort was introduced with a hefty $350 sticker and it is essentially a replica of the in-game device, but has real-life smartwatch functionalities instead. In other words, it probably won’t help you get through a post-apocalypse scenario, unfortunately. Anywho, as it turns out, it was a blessing in disguise if you missed it the last time round, because Bethesda, the game developer behind Fallout 4, is bringing the real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy back for a limited time and the most brilliant part is, it will cost just 100 dollars bundled with the new version of the video game, AKA the “Game Of The Year” Edition.
