Bricks Of War

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

I like stop motion. I like LEGO. I like Gears of War. This video by YouTuber ‘Kooberz’ combines all three into a very entertaining 2 minutes of minifigures being violent. I wonder if Traveler’s Tales, Epic Games, and Microsoft would be willing to make this the next game in the ‘LEGO’ series.

LEGO Lancer

This is one of the more impressive LEGO projects I’ve seen on the internet: a working Lancer assault rifle from Gears of War. It’s life-sized and shares almost all the features of it’s fictional counterpart, including a removable box magazine, semi and full auto firing modes, a safety mechanism, and a functioning chainsaw(!). It’s ammo supply? Rubber bands, naturally.

The Science Behind Gears Of War

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Gears of War 3 came out on Tuesday, and it’s a blast. A lot of the enjoyment has to do with the ridiculous weaponry, like chainsaw bayonets, guns that shoot living grenades and orbital laser cannons, and insane enemies, like the Locust Drones, Corpsers and the Lambent. Obviously, when you’re dealing with such fantastical elements there’s a (rather large) degree of implausibility, if not outright impossibility, you just have to accept, right? It seems that’s only partially true. According to this Gamepro article at least a few of those elements are somewhat plausible according to several PhDs. So, the chances of there being independently evolved Homo Sapien-esque organisms on another planet is greater than finding an underground Godzilla and raising him as a pet? Bummer.
