Creative director Matthew Stevenson said that when they were kids, he and his brother were frustrated by the confusing maze that is Metroid. Recently the title’s pun with the DC Metro came to his mind, and with it his childhood frustration.
Look what we’ve got here. Is it a new stretched-out flying car? Nope. What you see is a real aircraft fuselage which has now been grounded. It’s part jet, part automobile, all plaything for the wealthy.
Over the years, the Dark Souls franchise has gained a pretty big following. One Dark Souls fan is obsessed enough that he has recreated Firelink Shrine as a scene within LEGO Worlds. Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.
All Hollywood seems to know how to do these days is make remakes, reboots, rehashes, and retreads. One of the movies that they haven’t touched yet is Back to the Future, and they must never be allowed to soil this classic franchise.
I’ve made it very clear that i am a huge fan of Stranger Things on Netflix. It’s hands-down the best show that Netflix has ever made, and makes their other shows look dowdy by comparison. It helps that as a child of the ’80s I can very much relate to all the things the kids were into.
It’s kind of amazing that we still keep coming up with new sports. Foot Sports UK has invented a fun new sport called Foot Darts. It is basically a combination of soccer and darts.
The idea is that you kick a velcro-covered soccer ball against a 23-foot high inflatable dartboard.
I loved Mario Kart back in the day, but boy could the game piss me off. Getting nailed with a turtle shell and off the track waiting for a tow that seemed to take forever was a ticket to throw-the-controller-land.
TeePublic member Mdk7 played Vault Boy like a damn fiddle, turning him into a Metal Gear Solid V mascot in this awesome mashup.
Even Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima approved of his new recruit, retweeting Bezzle-ution’s shot of the t-shirt.
Springfield was once a happy, peaceful place… until one day a powerful secret criminal organization took over. A group of young locals has sworn to clean up the city. Among them are Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson and Milhouse Van Houten.
Two of my favorite things about the ’80s were Pac-Man and Ghostbusters. I even had the Ghostbusters theme by Ray Parker Jr. on a 45 rpm record, and jammed out to that tune constantly. Now I’ll have “Who Ya Gonna Call” in my head all day.
Part of the appeal of MOBAs like League of Legends is that they have tons of playable characters. You know who else has tons of characters? Disney. DeviantArt member Elasar Reem turned just a subset of Disney characters into LOL champions.
LEGO enthusiast Steve Price shows what could happen if the girls of the LEGO Friends set got their hands on the Galactic Empire’s Death Star. In Steve’s The Friends Star, the Heartlake City kids gave the Star Wars space station a bright and pastel-colored makeover, then they invited their buddies for what has to be the largest children’s party in the galaxy.
Some things are awesome together. Peanut butter and chocolate, cookies and milk, Picard and Riker, just to name a few. You know what else is awesome? Slamming the 1960s Batmobile together with a modern Tumbler. I am now in love with a car that I never knew existed before today.
I always get a kick out of mashups of films that I loved as a kid. I really like this new work from artist James Hance. He has taken Princess Leia complete with her giant hair buns and put her in a picture with Indiana Jones.
Daleks are pretty ominous creatures to begin with, but this cool ultimate Dalek design is kinda terrifying. To be honest, I’m not sure that the Doctor can take on this thing, let alone an army of them.
