Now this is why I like shopping at thrift shops! To be honest thrift/charity shops and car boot sales are amongst the best places to get hold of retro games in the UK – the thrill of the case is part of the fun! But everyone dreams of finding that “something special” – amd as this story shows, this was a very special find indeed! A person who found NES rarity “stadium events” for $7 at a thrift shop has put it on ebay and so far the bids have reached a STAGGERING $12, 000 and counting! Check out the original story on Polygon.com after the jump: Rare NES game Stadium Events found at thrift shop, up for auction at $12,000 http://www.polygon.com/2013/4/19/4244880/stadium-events-nes-game-auction
Here’s a video I’ve been looking forward to seeing finally hit the net… An app developer has posted a video of a GOOGLE GLASS unboxing – by shooting it through the device itself. Yes you don’t get to see the device “in hand” (there are plenty of pictures online to show this) but it does finally give is am idea of the video quality achievable through the device. It shoots 720p – good enough for everyday use but not quite amazing for watching on a huge LED TV. I would say it is not *quite* as good as the latest generation Go-Pro action cameras, bjt then Glass is much less cumbersome so has its advantages in this respect… Check out the video embed below and let me know what you think:
I’ve never been much of a fan of Superman as a character… To me, a man that is almost indestructible (in most cases) is a bit pointless – Batman has his limitations and is borderline as “crazy” as his enemies, Tony Stark is a Genius making up for his families Warmongering – all of which make for much more interesting storytellimg in my humble opionion… But I have to say… what seems to be being done with MAN OF STEEL looks very promising… The new mucial score is especially great – rumours are not a single note of the original movie score will be used in this reboot – an especially ballsy move! Check out the trailer below and (#SPOILER): Keep an eye out for the Lexcorp Building during the closing montage sequence:
So it looks like they are going with the Ultimate Spiderman version of Electro for Amazing Spiderman 2 – and I can see why… I hardly expected to see Jamie Fox running around in Green and Yellow spandex with lightning bots on the mask… The lights on the hoodie will be removed in post edit amd replaced with electric bots comming off the skin… More details on Geek Tyrant after the jump below, but please do let me knlw what you think!

Here is another interesting story in what seems like a never ending war between tech companies these days… One of the most heated “debates” in the world of tech is between Samsung and LG’s display devisions (read: TVs). The latest crashing of Antlers comming via a raid on Samsung’s offices by Seoul Police after allegations they stole LED display technology from LG – a raid that LG categorically deny they were the ones behind… Check out the full story from SlashGear via the link below – and let me know what YOU think about these types of “squabbles” – i’m all ears!
