Don’t Ridicule this Riddick comeback

Everyone knows the Riddick, not because of how awesome he looks, the dreadfully perilous adventures he has endured or because he is played by Vin Diesel, but because of that one time he killed a man with a chipped cup. I suppose the actor helps though. Most of us have felt a little empty since the last film two years ago, we want more and by the Gods it seems Vin Diesel intends to answer our blasphemous prayers. In his recent social media posts he has revealed two new interesting bits of news that brings hope back to the hopeless. The first is a series called Merc City, developed by his very own One Race Films’ newly found TV division. […]

The Impacto – Feel the virtual punch

Have you ever played a boxing game and felt like something was missing? The raw, visceral feeling of being hit or blocking the punch of your opponent – that sensation seemed like it could never be experienced by the gamer, except through going up against pugulists in real boxing rings or engaging in regular bar fights. Along came the VR headsets that promise to visually immerse us in a virtual world that many have been clamouring for. Yet something has been missing: the tactile sensation when one hits something as one would experience in the real world. Enter “The Impacto”. Yes I know the name sounds a bit silly but let me elaborate on its applications. The Impacto is a […]

Fallout 4

 

 I run swiftly towards a large abandoned house, my empty gun smoking and my feet kicking up dust and detritus with each foot fall. I can feel sweat running down the back of my neck, and I swear I can feel my enemies breath flowing over my spine. I do not think I am going to make it. In fact, I am almost certain of it. The door of the house looks locked. I could probably break into it. But it may take me some time. Time I do not have. My feet hit the steps of the entrance. My enemy is right behind me. I blink, fearing the end. Suddenly there is an almighty eruption of gunfire and explosions. […]

News: Friday the 13th: The Game

“Look, you don’t understand. There is a maniac trying to kill us.” — Rennie Wickham (Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. 1989) In case your internet access has been temporarily revoked and the excited squeal of our Shadowy editor hasn’t reached your ears we believe you should know that a wonderfully gruesome title with many nostalgic ties has been officially announced. As the article title suggests we are talking about Friday the 13th. Not that long ago the folks at Gun Media, a small video-game programming company, revealed an asymmetrical-multiplayer horror game called “Summer Camp”, which seemed to be a promising entry into the slasher franchise. The announcement came via IGN February earlier this year. Shortly after the […]

Star Trek: Renegades

 

 I’ve seen a fair few fan films in my time, and I must say “I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!” So when I found out a few years back that there was talk of a Star Trek fan film that could possibly, in some way, maybe, perhaps, become a new TV series, I was instantly hooked. Skip ahead two years and the fan film, Star Trek: Renegades has landed with a gigantic splash that can be felt all the way over in the Delta quadrant. In the words of Wookiee: “This is not your grandparents star trek, it’s better.“ [youtube id=”OjeX5drV9ms” width=”600″ height=”350″] How do I describe this to you without giving too much away? Perhaps like this: The galaxy is […]

Mafia 3

Some of you know that I am a fan of organised crime games. I still cannot place my finger on exactly why I enjoy them, I simply do. Perhaps it has something to do with the suits? Maybe it has something to do with the cars? Perhaps it’s the notion that men of honour have access to a plethora of gorgeous ladies? Perhaps it’s my deep desire to make my enemies “‘an offer they can’t refuse”? On the other hand it could be my deep desire to embrace the  Machiavellian mindset when dealing with life’s little obstacles. Or maybe, just maybe, it lets me live the Italian-American dream? Who knows??? Regardless, I love the Mafia games. So you can imagine […]

The historic moment: A robot passed a self-awareness test

It’s like a scene out of Neil Blomkamp’s Chappie, a robot waking up and suddenly being no longer just a machine but an entity that is able to understand its surroundings. Robots have always been a part of the collective human fantasy, the machine that does the chores we hate and fights the wars that we do not want to sacrifice human life to win, and on the verge of all of this fantasising there have been those who have longed for a robot that is self-aware. Perhaps it is our human desire to relate to the objects that we create. After all we add human personification to many other man-made objects in our world, and this is just another […]
