Here’s a ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Fan Film Made with LEGO!

Man, it SURE has been a while since The PractitioNERD posted any sort of a LEGO-related story, but I’m glad we could get back on that 1000-piece LEGO train (toot-TOOOOT). With the success of the theatrical LEGO films (The LEGO Movie & The LEGO Batman Movie) and the unlikelyhood of a movie based on the Grand Theft Auto video game series (likely due to the rights to the movie title; THANKS Ron Howard), it’s very evident that these two brands will never officially mesh together. HOWEVER, the lovely concept of fan films DOES exist. YouTube movie maker love Nukazooka latest short brings the two together to create a winning combination.

‘Night Trap’ Re-release Sparks ‘Night Trap 2’ Development; Work on Sequel to Speed Up After NT1’s Ports are Done

This Friday, the remaster of the classic/infamous full-motion video game Night Trap will be re-released in a limited physical run on August 11 (thanks to developer Screaming Villains & Limited Run Games), while the digital release on PS4 and PC takes place on August 15. Due to the positive feedback of the re-release, its sequel, Night Trap 2, is currently in the very early stages of development as it aims to go into full-speed after the original game’s other remastered ports are finished and released. Another interesting little tid-bit is that the original game director, James Riley, will be heavily involved in the sequel’s development.

Blizzard’s hit online multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch is fun and awesome. I know it. You know it. Mechanical cosplayer Mike Carambat knows it, as well as his daughter (who is also a cosplayer). Carambat, who goes by retroresource on Reddit, has built a walking D.Va mech. This mech even comes with four thrusters that blow smoke and strobe, that arms move up and down via the controllers, a steering mechanism within the torso, an old electric wheelchair forming the base, and rotating guns rotate that light up in different colors. The mech even features a sound system with D.Va voice-overs, a rear exit hatch  and even a fan to keep the pilot cool.
