PopCorn Garage is a challenging hidden object game made just for movie fans

PopCorn Garage will put your movie trivia knowledge to the test

I stumbled across PopCorn Garage (PLAY THE GAME HERE) a little while ago, and now I honestly can’t remember what brought me there to begin with. Regardless, the game/hidden object picture/digital movie garage is a fun way to kill some time, test your knowledge of cinema iconography, and try to beat your score when you inevitably fail. I was surprised at just how hard it was to spot everything, and I didn’t make it much further than the 38 badges found (out of 66) as you can see above. There are a lot of obvious images and logos littering the PopCorn Garage, but after a while it gets tough.

After hitting the standouts, I ended up scanning the entire garage from end to end, and I still wasn’t able to find everything. It’s pretty addicting once you get into it, and PopCorn Garage has everything from Pulp Fiction to Howard the Duck, Toy Story, and Taxi Driver. Spot anything obscure that jumps out at you? You only get three wrong guesses before the game boots you out of the garage and makes you start over completely, and I learned that a few icons are pretty fickle, so save and come back if you’re not sure.

Give it a try, and let me know how well you did. The object of the game is to click on something you recognize and then type in the name of the movie it coincides with. You don’t have to be 100% correct when guessing the title (for instance, “Something About Mary” will suffice for “There’s Something About Mary”), but remember you only get three guesses. That said, you are able to save as often as you like, so there’s that. Hop on over to PopCorn Garage and see how many movie badges you can collect!

Real Life Hitman video game lets YouTubers control Agent 47

Realm Pictures’ Real Life Hitman game is intense

The folks over at Realm Pictures have created something special with their real life video game experiences. Their latest creation is an Io Interactive-endorsed recreation of the Hitman video game, and it rocks. YouTubers (stars of the platform, it would seem) were given the opportunity to sit down and control Agent 47 through a level of the real life game, and I’m jealous. Watching them work their way through a swanky mansion to eliminate a target and complete a few different objectives is ridiculously entertaining, so I recommend checking out the new video. Who knows, maybe this kind of idea will catch on and a new genre of gaming will emerge.

Watch the new Real Life Hitman video from Realm Pictures after the jump. You can also find the Level 1 and Level 2 first person shooter videos (both great), so be sure to give them a watch too.

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

Way back in May, Jon Favreau directed a fun live-action trailer for the upcoming Destiny video game, and today another awesome live-action trailer has popped up to keep Bungie/Destiny fans salivating until the game’s release on September 9th. The first thing that immediately jumped out at me while watching the new “Become Legend” trailer was the voice of Peter Dinklage (of Game of Thrones fame) as the floating robot sidekick. Kind of cool!

Check out the new live-action trailer for Destiny after the jump.

Mortal Kombat X video game trailer is a brutally fun tease

If I’m being honest, I haven’t played a Mortal Kombat game since Deadly Alliance way back on the GameCube. If the new trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X is any indication, the franchise has evolved quite a bit in the last 12 years, but one thing seems clear – the game still revels in its violence.

Fan favorites Scorpion and Sub-Zero face off in the brand new announcement trailer for Mortal Kombat X. Check it out after the jump!
