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.

Bandai Namco Brings Back Tamagotchi In Both Hardware And App Iterations

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.

Since the 70s, Star Wars has captured the imagination of sci-fi buffs the world over. Among the tech depicted, though fictional, that has fans enthralled would be the Lightsaber. How nice if Lightsaber is real? The prospect of wielding the futuristic energy blade-equipped sword and wishing the worst on your enemy is strangely satisfying. It was every Star Wars fans’ wet dream come true which will never become a reality. But that’s until now. Thanks to Lenovo Star Wars Jedi Challenges Augmented Reality video game, your dream of wielding a Lightsaber is finally a dream no more. Granted, you won’t share the same experience as Luke Skywalker since what you will be experiencing will be wholly based on augmented reality, but hey, it is way better than not having any.

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. If you felt that way and think you could do better than the bunch of idiots over at Masrani Global Corporation, well, here’s a piece of good news for you: your chance to shine as the manager and operator of the world’s only dinosaur theme park is almost here. Well, virtually, that is. We won’t be getting clone dinosaurs anytime soon and I certainly hope no one is attempting to do so.

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

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?
