This short little chunk of theatre performance gets A+ for effort. Not sure if it ranks that highly for impact but I really enjoyed it. It was performed by the Ninja of the Night cosplay group at Fanime 2011. Did you know there was even such as thing as a cosplay group? I didn’t. Geek […]

Happy Together remake makes Hunted trailer fun
I’m really impressed by the music in this trailer for Bethesda Softwork’s launched-in-the-US Hunted game. Hunted is a bit of Diablo meets Dungeon Siege combat crawl but plays special attention to the nuances of having two leading characters rather than one. They’re happy together; hence the clever use of music in this age-rated trailer.
Deadly, finger-slicing, circular sawblade slingshot
We’ve featured Joerg Sprave on Geek Native before – how could we not. For a starter you could check out his Gatling slingshot and then move on to his machete firing slingshot. Yes, he has hurt himself with these inventions. That’s why I bring up his latest invention with some concern – but also with […]

I want Location Based Gaming to be Project Cafe’s genius
Nintendo will announce more details about the Wii 2, aka Project Cafe at E3 or thereabout this year. We know that Nintendo are lukewarm on 3D TVs.

Connor Anderson Interview: Why did he roll a D6?
“Roll a D6” is a fantastic music video that’s going great guns on YouTube. It’s a spoof of Far East Movement’s Like a G6 and I’ve noticed a fair few bloggers suggest it is far better. The video was put together by Connor Anderson and his team – Broken Record Films – and Connor kindly […]

If you’re worried about the risk of spoilers then stop reading this. Go back here and read something else. This post is just speculation but it reaches towards sources with better and more official connections in the search for insight and solutions to the “I can’t cope with the suspense” problem. The 13th episode of […]
Fantastic and slightly creepy origami Nazgul
This is pretty slick. I can’t imagine the origami skill required to fold this – it looks very impressive. Look at the Nazgul’s hands; they even have fingers! There’s even a cloak. Combine the excellent origami with the simple idea of picking matt black paper and I think the effect is really impressive. In fact, […]
GM Inspiration: Freaky steampunk bug
This picture was shared by a LiveJournal picture community without credit. If you know the creator please leave a comment – that’s if you’ve not already fled to the next post with a cry of “Eeeew!”. I think this bug is two parts freaky for each part cute. Most of all, perhaps, this picture strikes […]

Late breaking news included a world exclusive trailer of the forthcoming Green Lantern that aired on the Saturday as well as an exclusive on Henry Cavill’s Immortals fantasy-action movie. There were some big name TV stars… voices. […]
