A few weeks ago, I got an idea for a post here at GeekOut.ph thanks to an email I received from Carmudi. I thought to myself "Man, it'd be cool if Carmudi had every conceivable car on their listing." With that rattling in my head, I listed down what cars from fiction would just be awesome to drive down the Skyway while blasting some Katy Perry or some Taylor Swift. Let's go take a look at that list right now!
Let's get the obvious one out of the way from the get-go. The Batmobile is one of the most recognizable fictional car despite it having many, many looks. The specs and features of the Batmobile really depends on the medium and the story it was featured in, but they all have one thing in common - badassery.
I'm actually quite partial to the BTAS batmobile, though. Look at that thing.

Toy reviews come a dime a dozen, but there are only a few really worth watching. Unfortunately, I wouldn't call mine any good, but there are a few Filipino toy reviewers that I really look up to. You've got guys like Dennis "Slangards" Domingo and Dominic "Advocate Pinoy" Dimagmaliw. And today, I think I'll add a new guy to that list of awesome Pinoy toy reviewers.
Today, I watched Japoskee's review of Stealth Tech Donatello. It is literally one of the most entertaining toy reviews I've seen in a while. I was laughing my ass off at some parts of it. And not only was it funny, it was actually really informative. What's different about his review is that it's completely in Tagalog, and it just works. It's awesome. I don't think it'd be as effective if I did it that way, and I'm glad I didn't because I'd have him to compete with.
I asked for permission to post his video here on GeekOut, and he accepted. So without further ado, check out his video below.

The one thing I've always frustrated me with the PS3 was the inability to record gameplay or even take screenshots. If you wanted to capture any screenie or footage, you'd have to hook your PS3 up to a capture card, which doesn't capture in HD, if I'm not mistaken. I recall it was due to their harsh anti-piracy tactics. I guess Sony peeps were afraid people would just capture HD video off Blu-rays being played.
It was something people did not like one bit. In the age of social, where people share practically every little thing, the option to be able to create and publish should be open to everyone. PC users could do it without any issue, and it would be the platform of choice for most livestreamers, Twitchers and YouTubers.
The engineers and designers at Sony listened to us, and gave us exactly what we wanted. Not only did they make it easy to publish and save screenshots, they built editing software directly into the PS4! And I love it!
Enter, the Playstation 4 SHAREfactory!

What I love about the current direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they're slowly taking relatively unknown superheroes (at least, unknown to non-comic book readers) and making them household names. And they're doing it the right way - by treating their characters right. The reason why people fall in love with these characters in the first place is because of who they've been built up to be over the years in thousands of pages of comic books. Marvel Studios takes that and transforms it into something magical for the silver screen. I mean, no comic book reader would've ever imagined that Rocket Raccoon would be as famous as he is now.
Ant-Man's announcement came in as a pleasant surprise for those who knew how awesome Ant-Man's character can be. Comic book fans were all "OH MY GAWD Is it Pym?! Please let it be Pym! Let him join the Avengers in the third movie! OH ULTRON! HE CAN CREATE ULTRON! Oooh! Ooh! I hope Scott Lang makes an appearance!"
Non-readers said "Great new Marvel movie! Wait... who is Ant-Man?"
For the benefit of the non-reader, here's what you have to know about Ant-Man before the movie hits theaters this July, 2015.
Who is Ant-Man?
