Anyone ever wanna' get shredded (literally) as you shred the gnar gnar pow pow?


On another note did this fan take it just a bit too far? I mean, 'SkiFree' is arguably the forefather of the infinite runner genre. Do you really tamper with that?


Anyways, for real, this game put a massive sap on nationwide, no, global productivity levels, in offices and schools; but it was totally worth it. In case you find yourself utterly flooded with a wave of nostalgia, revisit 'SkiFree' over here.

Plenty of us regularly dabble in the daily clandestine efforts of keeping that 'Clash of Clans' or 'Geometry Dash' or 'Candy Crush' on lock; and don't even think about reminiscing over the risk that went into trying to pull up a game at work or in the chambers of a lecture hall on the good 'ol laptop.


A quick look back at high school, and it seems something of a crying shame so many teachers were so adamant about shutting down that handheld/laptop entertainment. But I mean hey, kids gotta' learn right?


Well, it turns out students at Games High School in Norway pretty much have it made.


The Norwegian public high school in the city of Bergen, Norway plans to roll out an official school administered e-sports academics program.


Students enlisted in the program will devote five hours a week to playing games at school. The classes will include 90 minutes of physical training, which will be fine tuned for the e-games, and also incorporate reflex, strength, and endurance training exercises.


The school hasn't reached a final decision yet on which games its students will study, but there's talk about first-year games candidates being, 'Dota 2,' 'League of Legends,' 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,' and 'Starcraft II.'

One game controller is active at a time, up to eight people can play as the game controllers cycle through.  They can change according to game position on the screen or after a fixed amount of time.

People born after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 will never know that impact it had on those who experienced it firsthand and those who watched from around the world.

But this might give a slight glimpse into what happened that day.

A new virtual reality experience named [08:46] puts users in New York's World Trade Center as the tragic events of September 11 unfold.

The experience drops users in the North Tower moments before impact.

From the project's Oculus Share page:

Based on countless hours of research in order to try to properly recreate the atmosphere and dynamics within the top floors of the towers, [08:46] was designed and developed as a school project during three months by a six members team, working in close collaboration with two actors for mocap and voice acting.

You can download the project right here and try it out for yourself.
