As he has created awesome movies such as "District 9" and "Elysium".
And just recently Blomkamp released his brand new movie "Chappie" (which has a average score of 7.3/10 via imdb). A movie that´s full of famous movie stars such as Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, Die Antwoord and Dev Patel.
And just when i thought that "Chappie "couldn't possibly get any cooler. I found out about the "Chappie Graffiti" live event (which took place at The Old Truman Brewery in London, back in February).
The Chappie live event at Old Truman Brewery, London England.
The event was broadcasted via Twitch, and there were 12 Youtube stars at site as well (they all got handpicked by Sony Pictures and OMD). Plus some of London´s most talented graffiti stars from Graffiti Life. And that resulted in a very impressive graffiti creation (as pictured above).
And if you want to see how the graffiti painting came to life. Then just checkout the video further down the page!
För att marknadsföra den hett eftertraktade filmen ‘Chappie’, har Sony Pictures and OMD handplockat 12 YouTube stjärnor från hela Europa för att delta i ett live-streamat event från The Old Truman Brewery i London den 25:e Februari 2015. Tillsammas har dessa stjärnor en följarskara på över en million följare!
Varje stjärna fick en avgörande roll när det kom till att skapa Europas största delningsbara konstverk tillsammans med Londons mest respekterade Graffitistjärnor från Graffiti Life. YouTube stjärnorna fick även träffa den prisbelönta regissören Neill Blomkamp samma morgon eventet skulle ske som därefter följdes av en exklusiv förhandsvisning.
Under kvällen skulle en 18,5 x 3 meter stor graffitivägg skapas med minnesvärda bilder ur filmen. På bara tre timmar hade stjärnorna lyckats skapa sitt mästerverk.
När målningarna var klara och mästerverkat var komplett så styckades väggen ner till 600 unika delar som sedan skickades ut till de länder som var representerade på eventet. Twitch är kanske den populäraste online gaming plattformen och Twitch live streamade skapandet av graffitiväggen mellan 18-21 där YouTubestjärnorna med jämna mellanrum tittade in i kanalens pop-up lounge där de fick testa på att spela det kommande spelet EVOLVE tillsammans med Twitch populära commentator Spamfish.
In about two weeks (March the 17th) from now it´s show time for EA and Visceral Games urban War FPS game "Battlefield: Hardline" (Windows, PS3, PS3, 360 and Xbox One), so the pressure is on for sure now.
And as the release draws nearer, the Battlefield fans is starting to ask themselves the following question. Si BF: Hardline really worthy of my time and money?
So, yeah. BF: Hardline got a whole lot to prove. But i have to admit that i like the thought of a crime/heist themed BF game. Kind of like a mix of GTA 5, BF4 and Payday 2.
It may not be everyone´s cup of tea though. But i´m at least going to give BF: Hardline a fair chance.
So who knows, we might actually meet some of you guys (and girls) on the battlefield in the near future? ;)
It toke Jonas Mårtensson seven years to perfect the art of fries. Which then resulted in "crispy fries".
There´s a big difference between fries and fries. Just ask Max´s head chief Jonas Mårtensson. Because he searched all over the world for the perfect fries for over 7 years before he found what he was looking for.
And it was a "eureka!" kind of experience for Mårtensson, when he discovered "crispy fries".
Which would be slimmer fries (which still has the potato shells on) that uses a different kind of salt. That´s the result of Jonas Mårtensson´s "crispy fries".
I have no idea what it tastes like, but i´m quite sure that Mårtensson knows his fries more than well.
But i´m going to give "crispy fries" a try asap!
Will "The Crew" have a chance against the elite games of the racing genre?
There´s a lot of competition on the racing scene, and everyone want´s a piece of the pie. And it seems like Ubisoft will try to reach out a grab a piece of that pie with their online open world racing game "The Crew" (for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360). But will Ubisoft succeed?
Or will The Crew end up being just "another" racing game among the crowd? Left far behind in the dust of other superior racing games? Well, back in July (this year) Ubisoft released the closed beta version of "The Crew" for PC.
And from what i´ve heard, the beta players enjoyed the game (which would be the story-driven missions which takes place in the Midwest and East Coast of America).
The console players seems to have liked the open beta (which started November 25th) version of "The Crew" as well. And due to the fact that Ubisoft will release "The Crew" on December 2nd. We will soon find out whether or not the game rocks or just sucks.
But if you already believe in "The Crew", then you might consider checking out the nice pre-order deal for the game (which you can find down below).
The Crew pre-order deal:
- You get an exclusive access to a Mini Copper S 2010
Exclusive street edition including:
- A set of custom parts (front bumper, rear bumper, motor hood, rear wing)
- A full set of performance parts (motor core, tires, suspension, weight reduction, chassis, brakes, anti-roll bars, differential, engine, exhaust, ECU, carb, charger, gear box)
- An exclusive sticker created by the community
About The Crew:
This is The Crew, the ultimate MMO car-PG experience where starting your engine ignites an ever-changing, action-packed journey of infinite possibilities. This vast open world is for the countless drivers who come together to play, and for every driver within you. NEVER DRIVE ALONE.
I have to say that i really like the design of Sonys Sony Xperia Z3.
There´s a lot of competition on the smart phone market nowadays. More than ever before actually. Apple may have been the top cat of the market for several years now.
But times have (and the circumstances) changed. Samsung has started to take market shares from Apple, and China wants a piece of the pie as well (Google "Xiaomi", because they are the worlds third biggest smartphone manufacturer now).
So i really like that Xperia Z3 supports "PS4 Remote Play", and that it´s a really powerful smart phone (you can play the most advanced mobile games on the market with no sweat!). Awesome indeed.
But what does the Xperia Z3 costs then? About £549 for a unlock phone (Tre sells the unlocked version of Xperia Z3 for 6,000 Swedish krona).
That's A pretty good price considering what you get for that money (check out the Xperia Z3 features list down below!). Besides, it´s about time that i get a new smartphone. Because i´m still using a old iPhone 4.
But what about you guys? What do you think about

About Sony Xperia Z3:
Xperia Z3 is the smartphone that does more and goes further – whether further is a run in the rain or a dive into the pool on a sunny summer holiday. With the highest waterproof rating*, you can find your way in a downpour, take pictures underwater or just wipe off your phone after an unexpected spill. Combined with a super-slim body and aluminium frame, Xperia Z3 is the Android smartphone that teams durability with beauty.
It seems like my guts was right about Bioware´s Dragon Age: Inquisition (i know, we are all very tempted to call it "Dragon Age III", but no can do).
Because the fans likes the game, and so does the media as well. And so far the reviews has been very good for PS4, Xbox One and PC (nothing much has been said about the PS3 and 360 versions of Inquisition).
These are for example the average grades for Dragon Age: Inquisition so far:
Xbox One 87.50%
Xbox One 86/100
Rather good grades so i must say. But i´m still pretty curious to find out the average grades for the 360 and PS3 versions of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Oh well, time will tell! One thing is for sure though, Dragon Age: Inquisition (and Bioware) diden´t fail us!
About Dragon Age: Inquisition:
A cataclysmic event plunges the land of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons darken the sky, casting a shadow over lands on the brink of chaos. Mages break into all-out war against the oppressive templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you and your allies to restore order as you lead the Inquisition and hunt down the agents of chaos. Explore, lead, and battle: Tough choices define your experience, and even one decision can change the course of what's to come.
Mainly because of three reasons. 1. It´s not a next-gen title and 2. The struggle with technical issues (which is part true). And 3. The part about "Assassin's Creed Rogue reviews won´t be seen after the launch".
The last one turned out to be a false positive though. Because the reviews have already started to drop in for Assassin's Creed Rogue.
And so far, there´s more good reviews than bad one´s. For example, the 360 version of ACR has an average score of 84.17% via gamerankings.com, and a 84/100 via Metacritics.That´s good news of course.
But even so, there seems to be pretty blended emotions and thoughts about ACR. In my case, I'm quite curious to find out how good (or bad) the PC-version really is. Because so far, there´s no PC-reviews for Assassin's Creed Rogue. At least not from the big sites. Oh, well, time will tell. So, will you guys pick up ACR? And if so, to which format will you buy it?
About Assassin's Creed Rogue:

Introducing Assassin's Creed Rogue, the darkest chapter in the Assassin's Creed franchise yet.
As Shay, you will experience the slow transformation from Assassin to Assassin Hunter.

Which format will you play Far Cry 4 on?
I can´t say that i really urge that much for the Swedish winter to come and knock on my door. But at the same time. I know more than well that Ubisoft will release Far Cry 4 on November the 18th (for PC, PS3, PS4, 360 and Xbox One). Besides, the winter is already here in Sweden. Well, okay.
"Some" parts of Sweden. But i can look past that IF i get the chance to strangle that blond (Russian?) guy in Far Cry 4. I mean, just his haircut alone makes my blood boil. Speaking of which. Blondie (not the artist. But the blond bad guy from Far Cry 4) just happens to show up in Ubisofts new Far Cry 4 trailer. And, yeah. His just as creepy, evil and snobby as always. So, check it out ;)
About Far Cry 4:
Far Cry 4 is an open-world first-person shooter that delivers the most expansive and immersive Far Cry experience yet. In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous, and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.
