Irish Mike Made a Real-Life Gunblade May 18, 2017

The Gunblade is the signature weapon of Final Fantasy VIII.  Wielded by characters like Squall Leonhart, the weapon is unlike any other.

One of my favorite shows on Discovery Channel was Big Giant Swords. The show featured a retired steelworker turned bladesmith named Irish Mike, who created enormous swords for enthusiastic clients.  The show may have ended production, but Mike is still creating his swords online and for the past two months he’s been working on replicating Final Fantasy VIII‘s Gunblade.

This has to be the best real-life Gunblade I’ve ever seen. The detail is incredible and its scale looks very accurate to the game. If you want to see more of Irish Mike’s work, visit his YouTube Channel!

Final Fantasy VIII is out now for PC and PS1.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you three developers from DONTNOD, the creators of Life is Strange.

This is an incredible announcement, especially since I actually talked about the possibility of something like this happening yesterday during my Let’s Play of Alan Wake.  I can’t wait to see what DONTNOD has in store for us!

It looks like Maniac is on a roll as he plays through the third chapter of Alan Wake on the Xbox 360.  When we last left our hero, he was on the trail of his manuscript with hopes to use it to barter for his wife’s safe return.  But does this kidnapper intend to give Alan his wife back, and what is the cause of this supernatural darkness that attacks Alan every night?

Prepare yourself for some twists, turns, and a whole lot of behind the scenes insights and trivia.  All gameplay footage is produced with full video commentary.

Alan Wake is out for PC and Xbox 360.
