OK, maybe those aren’t quite the real figures, but at some point these headlines just become giant neon “LOOK AT ALL THESE IMPRESSIVE NUMBERS” signs. That said, the DayZ alpha is definitely a sprinter, not a shambler, given that it raced to 172,500 copies sold (and counting) in only 24 hours. Maybe this whole zombie fad has a chance of catching on after all, despite the fact that fairies, goblins, and poofy haired troll figurines are massively outpacing them in the pop-culture-sphere-o-scape right now.
A group calling themselves the "Iron Man Factory" had hoped to use Kickstarter to fund construction of a series of incredible 3D-printed Iron Man costumes. They really should have asked Marvel first, though.Read more...
"I am in the movie" is a visual effects tool for Nintendo handhelds, which can recreate visual effects from Hollywood movies. Using the system's camera and real time video processing it can transform you into the hero or villain from various blockbusters.
You can be the actor and/or director and recreate famous scenes or improv and create your very own original scenes.
"I am in the movie" recreates visual effects from a number of Hollywood blockbusters. You control what effects you want to trigger and when. All effects can be customized.

"The Super Awesome Micro Project", as this has become known, is not a special effect. That really is a life-size car made out of LEGO, and it really is being powered by an engine made out of LEGO.Read more...

The image comes from the trailer earlier today. It's a bit too blurry for me to say definitively that this is Zelda, but I could see how people would say that. What do you think? Thanks to VGAMER for the heads up!
Australia may finally have an adults-only game rating, but that doesn't mean anything and everything is approved for consumption down under. Take the upcoming South Park game, for example, whose alien anal probe scene has had to be heavily censored for Australian release. Read more...
GTA Online, the online side of Grand Theft Auto 5, gets a free update today that adds four new capture-the-flag modes. It being GTA, the flags are so much pieces of fabric as they are suspect packages and stolen vehicles. Simply titled Capture, the update brings Raid, Hold, GTA, and Contend to the game's team-based modes, along with 20 new jobs.
A quick rundown of the modes, then: Raid sounds like standard CTF, with teams attacking bases to seize packages and bring them to their bases. Hold, meanwhile, is about finding packages and storing as many as you can in your base - unlike Raid, packages are also dotted across the map. GTA is like Raid, but with vehicles spread across the map. Finally, Contend is centered around a single vehicle that respawns after it's successfully captured.
According to Rockstar, the update is available now through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. It also adds a bunch of tweaks and fixes that you can check out here.
Humble Bundle PC and Android 8 is live now with a hefty offering of games on four platforms: PC, Mac, Linux and Android. At the price of "anything," this bundle offers Little Inferno, Gemini Rue, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome and Jack Lumber, but you can pay more than the average to snag Hero Academy and Anomaly 2. All games come with Steam keys if you pay more than $1.
This is the Linux debut for the chess-like strategy game Hero Academy and the Android, Mac and Linux debut for Wadjet Eye's dystopian adventure Gemini Rue. Proceeds from Humble Bundle PC and Android 8 are split among Humble Bundle, the participating developers and charity, in a formula that you get to decide.
And yes, there will be more games before the bundle ends in two weeks. Guaranteed.
