Netflix Castlevania Teaser Trailer

In darkness, a hero returns in this first official teaser trailer for the new Netflix anime series Castlevania. This teaser trailer looks dark, and bloody, and I can’t wait to watch the actual series. Castlevania was a classic game for the Nintendo Entertainment System and though there have been several sequels spanning across several game systems, the original will always be one of the most iconic games of all time. This trailer definitely has a great call back to the original NES days in it. 

Mint Box Mini Game System

The Raspberry Pi is definitely a modern marvel of today’s technology. Altoids mints are chalky over priced mints that give you good breath for a short while. Who knew these two things could be used to make an awesome mini gaming console? Technically the mints themselves don’t play any part in this build but the tin that they come in does. These two things combined with a chopped up Nintendo DS make an amazing little hand held gaming system, complete with classic games.

Back to the 90s Music Video

I don’t know about you Nerd Nation, but I often find myself wishing I could go back to a simpler time, back when I was a kid and had no cares in the world. I wish I could go back to the 90s. Unfortunately, time travel only exists in the movies but that doesn’t mean that we can’t revisit the 90s. Thanks to Ben Giroux we can do just that by watching this totally awesome music video. There are so many great references made to the 90s that if you grew up then you will mostly likely remember every single one of them. Of course there is a bit of sadness when you think that most, if not all, of these great things we remember from our childhood don’t really exist anymore. However, it’s a great video and definitely worth remembering the 90s on this throwback Thursday.

The Best Star Wars Movie Lightsaber Battle

The Star Wars franchise has given us one of the best weapons in science fiction and movie history. I am of course talking about none other than the iconic lightsaber. It’s not as clumsy or random as a blaster. It’s an elegant weapon from a more civilized age. We’ve all wished that we could wield a real lightsaber at some point in our lives but unfortunately we’ve had to settle for watching them be used in battle on the big screen. So, in honor of today being May the 4th and Star Wars Day I thought I would share with you what I consider to be the best lightsaber battle in all of Star Wars cinematic history. 

Cancelled Star Wars Game Is Now Playable

The Star Wars franchise has given us many memorable games in the past, some that will live on in the hearts of fans for years to come. However, it is also synonymous with having games cancelled before they are ever released to the public. Fans are left with their dreams crushed and only their thoughts about what could have been. One game that was announced and cancelled to the dismay of fans was titled Star Wars: First Assault. It was slated to be a Call of Duty style, first person shooter game that never made it to store shelves. Well thanks to the magic of technology and some savvy  geeks it has now been leaked online and you can actually play the unfinished game.

Halo 3 Room Locked for 10 Years…Until Now

Halo 3 is arguably one of the best games to ever grace the Xbox 360. I for one have very fond memories of playing Halo 3 for endless hours with my friends. In fact, it was the whole reason I bought an Xbox 360 over the PlayStation 3 at the time. One of the best parts about the game was the amazing campaign mode that was filled with action mystery, and some hidden secrets. Some of those secrets were meant to be found while others in the game where never meant for fans to see. However, one group of dedicated players spent 10 years trying to get into an area of the map that was blocked but eventually their hard work and tireless efforts paid off.

Stephen King’s IT Teaser Trailer

Just when you thought you might be over your fear of clowns the new IT teaser trailer will make you think again. Pennywise is back and he looks creepier and more terrifying than ever. I don’t know about you guys but the original movie gave me nightmares for weeks as a kid and this new remake looks like it will probably do the same to me as an adult. Still, I think I might have to actually see this one in theaters. We have posted the official teaser trailer below for your viewing pleasure so be sure to check it out.
