Today on Highlight Reel we have vanishing boats, tomb heaven, hostage rescue strategies, musical tributes, and much more!
Mad Max may seem like the action-movie outlier among this year’s Academy Awards nominees, but it’s more than deserving of earnest consideration. In particular, I hope Fury Road wins Oscars for Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing.
Counter-Strike plus drivable cars, customizable bases, and lots and lots of sand? This is no ordinary custom map.
I live in Australia, where we drive on the left side of the road and thus the driver’s seat is on the right. Yet, after playing countless open-world games like GTA and Watch Dogs set in America, my instinct in-game is to approach the left side of a car. I didn’t even notice I was doing it until I was caught out by…
Building LEGO versions of Mad Max: Fury Road vehicles is awesome, but building a powerful, remote controlled one is another level of awesomeness.
My boss was dissatisfied with the (nearly) top-tier jacket upgrade Max Max receives in his eponymous game outing. We’ve got this, Totilo.
Someone smart recently told me that every video game should have a photo mode. Now that I’ve finally become obsessed with one, I agree. I can’t stop taking screenshots in the new Mad Max game. And that was before I even discovered the filters. Here are my best shots so far:

“You’re the video game writer person,” said one of my friends last night. “What do you think of Metal Gear Solid V?” I looked down at my Shadow Moses shirt, slightly embarrassed. “I haven’t played it much,” I confessed. “I’ve been spending most of my time with Mad Max.”
Michelle Sleeper makes props and armour for cosplay projects. When she was introduced to Laura, a left arm transradial amputee, they got together to do something awesome.
Today on Highlight Reel we have a whole load of Metal Gear, good Fulton extractions, head bobbin’, Mad Max cars, and much more!
Chris didn’t think much of Mad Max. I, on the other hand, am having some fun with it, though it might help that being an Australian who already lives in an interior wasteland I’m a little closer to the source material than he is.
Here’s something I wish more game designers understood: If you put an interaction in your game, I am going to interact with it. Anytime a game responds to its players, the rats—or at least this rat—are going to press the lever for more cocaine pellets. Jenova Chen, during a talk about the design of Journey a couple…
Today on Highlight Reel we have Mad Max, cartwheels, fearless horses, impressive CQC and much more!
