Merchandise Monday #17

Going to work in heavy traffic? This merchandise Monday is for everyone who wishes they had a Bumblebee to bypass the rush hour:

Bumblebee

Bumblebee

Yellow isn’t my favorite colour either, but being a Transformer alone makes Bumblebee badass. Not to mention he probably has some next-gen fuel intake which could be beneficial for the wallet.

Real Life Zombies

You have to buy the November issue of the National Geographic! There’s a huge article in there about real life zombies!

National Geographic

National Geographic

I bought it; and its really insightful. Although it will probably make your skin crawl. The article touches on various parasites and viruses/bacteria that attack the neurological processes in their victims’ brains; and how they manipulate their host’s thinking to ensure their own growth and survival.

Real Life Zombies

Real Life Zombies

There are a few comic book style stories amidst the article; to illustrate scenarios of how these real life zombies are at work all around us. Do you think our brains are being manipulated by one of these organisms? Are we really in control?

Merchandise Monday #16

My exams are now over! CELEBRATE… Sorry for that little outburst :) Moving on to merchandise Monday. I came across these Disney Infinity Marvel Superheroes:

Groot

Groot

They are pretty cute, but wow; for their tiny size the price is a bit insane. I didn’t buy them; i just thought i’d share them with you – since Christmas is around the corner and all ;)

Rocket Raccoon

Rocket Raccoon

There were other characters as well; but the Guardians of the Galaxy were my favorite ones. Others in the collection include Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and pretty much any Marvel hero.

Who is your favorite Marvel hero to date? Go green – go Groot 8-)

Superimpose Saturday #9

I can’t wait to see Interstellar! I’m obsessed with space travel and astronomy, as i’m sure most of you are too. The exciting lure of the unknown is too great to ignore. Matthew McConaughey will be planet-hopping in the partly solar-powered Endurance:

I have chosen something a little more agile for my journey through space. I’m sure you recognize this space transporter:

X-Wing Starfighter

Jodie Foster is my favorite actress. She’s wonderfully talented and a great role model. However, i did not find her space adventure film (Contact) to be all that exciting. Her character ended up landing on a planet and was missing for a good 18 hours. There is a lot of speculation, as to what actually transpired during this scene. There was a lack of clarity around this in the film:

Sci-fi fans are hoping that Interstellar has no such loopholes:

Is anyone dressing up as a video game character for Halloween? My friend Ben Groen wants to dress up as Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. I was thinking that Gordon Freeman’s HEV suit could make for a great outfit.

Zombie Hunter: War of The Dead

Z Hunter is an awesome first person shooter game; where you get to kill zombies!

Z Hunter

Z Hunter

The protagonist character that you play as is a pretty but tough lady, who is in fact an ex-marine. You have plenty of weapons to choose from; and with enhanced power-ups to make your weapons stronger; there should be no excuse for you to perish during the zombie apocalypse.

Zombies in Sight

Zombies in Sight

Besides saving yourself; your duty includes saving the lives of other innocent people who are potential victims to the zombie onslaught. It seems easy at first, but the further you proceed into the game; the more difficult it becomes. The volume of zombies increases; and they become stronger.

Protect and Save Innocent People

Protect and Save Innocent People

There are over 150 missions; and there are four different modes of gameplay to choose from, including: campaign, where are they, weapon test and superzombies.
