  • ‘Need For Speed’, drone pong and CES: this week’s TGIF video roundup

    TGIF, and we really shouldn’t be at work, but that won’t stop us from gandering through the week’s best tech, gadget and gaming videos, now will it? There goes the holidays, am I right? Although most of the working citizens of this world are back to their uncomfortable office chairs staring into their screen for eight hours a day, we don’t want those eight hours to be wholly unproductive. Thanks to the internet, there’s always something more interesting to do in the office, like catch up on this week’s best gadget, gaming and tech videos, for example. In this weeks avalanche of...

  • Don’t invite this beer pong playing robot to your NYE party [Video]

    Beer pong is the king of New Years Eve and St. Patrick’s Day games, not so? If you so happen to be an evil scientist (or just a gaggle of robotics majors at university), you’d probably want to build a beer pong machine to rule them all. And that’s exactly what these chaps have done. Empire Robotics, a company based in Boston, MA, has just built the Shaquille O’Neal of beer pong playing robots. It’s called the Versaball and it makes the game that seems easier than it is seem even easier than it is. But how does it work? Empire...

  • ‘Dying Light’, ‘Star Wars’ and ‘GTA V’ Heists: this week’s TGIF video roundup

    TGIF, and we really shouldn’t be at work, but that won’t stop us from gandering through the week’s best tech, gadget and gaming videos, now will it? Although we’re nearing the end of 2014, this week was another blockbuster for YouTube game trailers and people doing the pleasant cocktail of strange and brilliant things. Featuring this week, among others, is the trailer for Rockstar‘s latest hilarity experiment — GTA V Online Heists. That’s right, now you can finally rob banks as a seagull. Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition also comes under the spotlight in a more gameplay-based trailer, showcasing the ridiculous speed...

  • Christmas decorator uses the Force for epic ‘Star Wars’ light show [Video]

    Getting into the holiday spirit? We sure are, and this guy definitely is too. Around this time of year, we usually see the overzealous few put on spectacular lighting shows to annoy their sleeping neighbours and drive their electricity bills skyward, but this is taking it to the awesome extreme. Instead of the customary Santa, Rudolph and company we expect to see in December, this bloke has gone with a more interesting theme — Star Wars. That’s right, even the Sith is allowed to celebrate Christmas. Covering his house and front garden in over 100 000 lights and using 12 500 lighting channels...

  • Fails, sharks and Minecraft mazes: this week’s greatest gaming and gadget videos

    It’s Friday, and we really shouldn’t be at work, but that won’t stop us from gandering through the week’s best tech, gadget and gaming videos, now will it? People are always doing great, stupid and simply dumbfounding things on the internet. More often than not, the good folk with recording devices capture these priceless moments and upload them to video libraries across the web, giving us a chance to view them. This week, we venture into the block-brained fun of Minecraft to build a truly unique and rather organic game within a game, then it’s a trip through gamer infamy with this...

  • ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ gameplay trailer makes South African accents cool [Video]

    For all the Uncharted and The Last Of Us groupies out there, Naughty Dog launched a 15-minute long PlayStation 4 gameplay trailer of its latest title — Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. For those who aren’t fans, prepare to be wooed. After the announcement of the popular action adventurer series fourth title, A Thief’s End, the PlayStation exclusive has been kept quiet for the better part of 2014. That’s until now. The video shows what sounds like a group of South African mercenaries (you can’t miss the accents) try and hunt down protagonist Nathan Drake, in an effort to find the hidden...

  • ‘Destiny’s’ Dark Below DLC trailer is all kinds of epic [Video]

    A lot of gamers have found Destiny to be visually impressive but a load of mundane and tiresome hard work too. It would be cruel to call it the biggest let down of the year but for the most part, reviews of the game haven’t been vastly favourable. Things for Destiny grafters however looks to be on the up. Bungie has unveiled the official trailer to the upcoming “Dark Below” DLC pack, which promises to add a lot more fizz to the game. The DLC will focus on adding and improving a host of features, including raising the game’s Light Level...

  • Beyond gameplay: 10 video game cinematics that’ll give you chills

    There is nothing quite like sitting down to play a game and being greeted by the most beautiful and epic cinematic sequence. One of my earliest memories of these are the Warcraft cutscenes, specifically Warcraft III, which was one of the standards held up as the pinnacle of awesome animation in my 3D Animation course at the time. Of course since then, epic cutscenes à la Warcraft have become a staple, and if there are no amazing cutscenes that hold you in suspense, have you sitting on the edge of your seat, well then, your game better have something amazing...

  • 5 videos that will get you excited about ‘The Crew’ all over again

    The Crew has probably been one of the most eagerly anticipated racing games of recent memory. Sure, it’s not as pure as the Forza or Gran Turismo series, but its new open world, social take on an age-old genre has got many a tongue wagging, and many a right foot tapping. The game has been in my Christmas stocking list for quite a while now and tomorrow it’ll finally be released to a worldwide and extremely patient-up-to-now audience. A new take on driving games will see a more social, open world experience than before. Think of it like GTA V with an...

  • ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’ gets a load of uber zombies in Havoc DLC pack [Video]

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare‘s trailer series has been epic thus far. Factor in those cut scenes, and we have something that could easily be a movie, rather than a game. Add some zombies to the mix however, and you have an apocalyptic dream world, bullet-flying nut house that made Resident Evil so lovable. I’m talking about the games of course, not the awful movies. Today, gamers are greeted with another trailer that shows the first chapter of the “Exo Zombies” co-op mode, coming in the January 2015 Havoc DLC pack. We’re not just talking normal zombies here either. These chaps have...
