Salomondrin-goes-Pokemon-hunting-in-a-Porsche-918-1

I’ve always loved candid videos of people doing ridiculous things, but now that Pokemon Go is out, the videos are coming hard and fast.  Pokemon Go, as you might have heard is an augmented reality game on Android and iPhone. The game was released on July 6th and has become an overnight success. Now, there are more people playing this game than the total number of active users on Twitter.  Like the rest of the world, Salomondrin has caught the Pokemon Go bug too. So, he went Pokemon hunting in his Porsche 918 supercar.

Mario’s Getting a Mercedes

If you’ve ever played a Super Mario game, you’re going to love the new Japanese commercial for the Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV.  In it, an 8-bit Mario smashes blocks, collects coins, and runs over baddies in a pixelated Benz. When he wraps up the level, the NES game turns live-action, and a tough looking Mario in Batman-esque armor emerges from the SUV.  Besides being a fun ad, it marks a notable shift for both Nintendo and Mercedes-Benz.  It’s the first example of Nintendo licensing its intellectual property after its president Satoru Iwata announced the company would move in this direction as it struggles to profit from games on its Wii U console, Bloomberg reports. The GLA will also be the first real-life car available in the upcoming “Mario Kart 8.”

The Largest Game Of Tetris In History?

Drexel University professor Frank Lee took over the side of the 29-story Cira Centre in Philadelphia last year to play a gigantic game of Pong, setting the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Architectural Video Game Display.” Last night he doubled the record with a massive game of Tetris.  Controlled by joysticks conneted to the building’s LED lights via 4G wireless, this particular Tetris game was a competitive affair, with two teams playing on the north and south sides of the building. When one team cleared a row, the other team would get more blocks dropped on their play-field. Trash-talking was kept to a minimum, as the teams were a mile away from each other.

Shot Glass Roulette Drinking Game


Shot-Glass-Roulette

Liven up that boring party by adding booze to the mix with this Shot Glass Roulette drinking game. The game’s rules are quite simple. Every shot glass has 2 numbers and a color on it. Place your bets (using your glass), and if the ball stops on your number and color – bottoms up. The creators of the game opted for 3/4 ounce shot glasses, probably to keep people from getting drunk too quickly.

The Walking Dead Monopoly Set

AMC finally gets a gift we already knew was coming – an official Walking Dead Monopoly set. After seeing all of the prototype boards over the years, Hasbro has finally decided to release an officially licensed version. While the rules are pretty much the same in this zombie version of the popular game we all know and love, players will now play for resources that will save your life, as oppose to making you rich in the standard version. There are six different collectible tokens to choose from including Michonne’s katana, Rick’s Hat, RV, Lucille (bat), a bucket of body parts, and a telephone symbolizing Rick’s meltdown during season 3 of the show.

That’s still not the official title, but it’s one that keeps coming up. Warner Bros. also announced that this would be the opening of the movie. Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense.

Rockstar Games have announced that their latest game, Grand Theft Auto V, has netted over $800 million USD  in revenue in just 24 hours.

Nintendo Gameboy Converted to Android Gamepad


Use-Nintendo-Gameboy-as-Android-Gamepad-1

Once Nintendo Gameboy was the most favorite gaming consol. Now again you can revive those memories. A geek at Instructables has hijacked the Dot Matrix Gameboy and gutted it to take advantage of an Android Gamepad. The smart-jacking procedure involves a Wii Controller IME and a faulty Dot Matrix Gameboy that has no use nowdays. The Gameboy, after the successful alteration into Gamepad, works for any application or game that involves Android keyboard input and needs only a Bluetooth connection to get connected with android tablet/phone. Currently, it’s only been tested on Galaxy Nexus and as a SNES emulator but may work for any Android based tablet or phone, as said by its creator.

For The Halo Heads…


Halo 4 and the Master Chief got its gameplay debut yesterday during Microsoft’s E3 2012 conference with a colossal gameplay trailer using both live action and also Xbox 360 in-game footage.

Originally thought to be the flagship game for the potentially upcoming Xbox 720, the now Xbox 360-bound trailer shed light on both what the Halo 4 single player campaign would look like and also showcased both the new-look Covenant and ancient foes the Forerunners.

Halo 4 storyline:

The trailer also shed light on the Halo 4 plot revealing that the Master Chief would not be the only human stranded on the Forerunner planet, he will be joined by the surviving crew members of the UNSC Infinity, a titanic exploration vessel that has been pulled onto the planets surface.

Halo 4 weapons:

Appearing for the first time are the Forerunners, previously mentioned but never-before-seen creators of the Halos and the Ark. Combining both technology and organic life they bring with them an entirely new arsenal of weapons that will sit alongside the classic Halo Battle Rifle.

Halo 4 characters:

Finally the trailer was able to expand further on the relationship between the Master Chief and Cortana, the ancient AI that he both protects and relies on for help.

While little is known about her, Cortana’s back story was touched on by Halo Reach and looks to be expanded upon by Halo 4 with the Artificial Intelligence having to face the prospect of mortality.

Halo 4 release date:

Microsoft have revealed that the Halo 4 release date is 6th November and will be exclusively available for Xbox 360 with both the standard version and a Limited Edition available.

The Color Game.

Knowing your colors is something you probably stopped focusing on after pre-school.  A vast majority of us see a color wheel and don’t think twice, but for a graphic designer, color can mean everything.  The Color Game is actually more like a test, designed by Maria Munuera and Mark MacKay, and tests matching some colors arrangements in an allotted time.  Click the pic to take a shot at it.

I’m In L.A. Trick.


As I normally do for vacations, I always put up one last post so readers know why I’ve stopped posting all of a sudden.  This weekend, I’ll be at U.S.C. for homecoming once again.  And this year, (just like LAST YEAR) I’m sure things are going to be a rawkus jumble of work, fun, and excessive drinking.  So that being said, if your a religious post reader, sit tight until Monday when I can cure my soon to be hangover and get back to work.  But if your still a bit impatient, catch up with all the mischief on twitter @YoungStark where I’ll be posting up anything interesting live as it occurs.

The Kerning Game.


Click the pic to play the game.

For those of you who don’t know what kerning is, Ashley F. and Reggie Sylvester HATE you.  (Just kidding).  For those of you who don’t know what kerning is, it’s the, the term kerning refers to adjusting the space between two letters.  If letters in a typeface are spaced too uniformly, they make a pattern that doesn’t look uniform enough. Gaps occur, for example, around letters whose forms angle outward or frame an open space (W, Y, V, T, L).  But learning kerning is something thats crucial for every graphic designer.  Above is a little game that help you get your kerning act together.  Even if you’ve never been a graphic design major, check it out, and see how good you are at it.  Your mission is simple: achieve pleasant and readable text by distributing the space between letters.  Your solution will be compared to a typographer’s solution, and you will be given a score depending on how close you nailed it. Good luck.

The “Eyeborg” Documentary.


For the launch of the game “Deus Ex: Human Revolution,” Square Enix commissioned filmmaker Rob Spence to investigate prosthetics, cybernetics and human augmentation. Spence is a self-proclaimed cyborg who lost one eye, and replaced it with a wireless video camera. He is now known as “Eyeborg”, check his story out below, and BEWARE… the film contains some pretty gruesome surgery footage.

Game’s R.E.D. Album Debut’s At Number 1.


After more delays than a space shuttle launch, Compton rapper the Game will finally have his reward next week when his endlessly pushed-back fourth effort, The R.E.D. Album, debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. According to figures provided by SoundScan, the disc moved just under 98,000 copies, enough to grab the top spot but well below the first-week figures for his 2008 album LAX, which opened with 239,000 in sales.  Either way, it’s just enough to beat out Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, which drops to #2 in its third week, as sales dove 47 percent to 94,000 for a three-week total just north of 707,000.

Scott Storch’s News On A New Album.


Everyone in the hip hop industry is well aware of the hit making capability of beat master Scott Storch.  He’s a legend who’s worked with The Roots, Dr. Dre, Christina Aguilera, Fat Joe, Game, 50 Cent, Paris Hilton, and Nox, (just to name a few).  But when he announced his OWN solo album, I was curious to see what he had in mind.  Check the method below.

Where Is The Red?

About 2 years ago, I took a trip to London, and got my wallet jacket.  So with no money, no I.D., no credit cards, or travelers checks, my friend and I decided to play a little game with people to make some money.  It’s called by many names all over the world, but its the same basic concept.  It consists of an item (a ball, wadded up piece of news paper, or whatever) underneath a cup, or bottle cap, and the “controller” scrambles them around, and you have to pick which one said item is under.  We’ve all seen it a million times, and when you play for subway money, the controller tends to cheat.  But when you play online there’s no cheating, just an absurd amount of speed that the computer can put on spins.  So try your luck, do you best, and click the pic to figure out where the ‘red’ is.
