Nerf’s latest Super Soaker commercial features the Switch Shot and Arctic Shock. I might have to pick up a Switch Shot myself for that stock.
Quest recently posted this video of their new arena in play. It was a big event, they even got their mayor to come and help open for the event. torukmakto4 on Reddit posted some interesting thoughts on the video though.
Look, I don’t really want to be that negative poster so I am really conflicted to say this, but…
Why does every commercialization of nerf have to be so… lame?
This is like some 1990s stereotype of nerf. Fluorescent orange and yellow arena in super ultra close quarters, with WAY too many people on the field at once, no conceivable way of playing an organized game or calling hits (note kid with darts on his jersey still in play), darts going about 20 feet, outdated underperforming gear. Some totally incompetent shooting and facepalm worthy play there. And kids, SO many kids. Everyone having a free for all shooting darts wildly and randomly at near point blank… I think I will pass.
Yeah, I have a major “Get off my lawn!” streak. I admit it, but I think this is just the wrong way to run a nerf event and isn’t helping us be any more legitimate as a hobby.
I’m a bit too busy at the moment to take some serious time out and comment on that, but I will say that most Nerf games I play in are not like the video shown above.
I for the life of me can’t figure out how to embed the video here. But a user recently figured out how to flip the Rough Cut like the Winchester 1887. You can view the video here. It was made very popular in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, but to be a different here’s a clip of Arnold Schwarzenegger doing it in Terminator 2.
I’ll be having a write up review of this blaster coming in a few days as well, but for now here’s a video review on the Elite Masterkey I created. I must say, it’s quite the good blaster, and has quickly become my favorite. I’ve even included some clips from some mini HvZ games I’ve played in the review to show you how effective it is. Keep your eyes tuned to my Youtube channel and blog for gameplay in Nerf Wars and mini Humans vs. Zombies games with me using this as a primary.
Well it took me a couple of months, but I finally finished my recap video! This video is made up of almost 100 percent Nerf War videos shot with a GoPro Hero2. The clips were recorded from June until December. In this video you’ll see Stampede, Rampage, Rayven, Pyragon, Snapfire 8, Hail-Fire, Alpha Trooper, Retaliator, and many more blasters being used by myself and others. You’ll also see head shots, dodging, rushing, diving, a couple of melee attacks, and a couple of funny moments. I would love to tell you more, but I feel like I’ve spoiled the video enough. Please let me know what you think of it!
The introduction video to Paper Shooters
Foam From Above recently brought to my attention this new blaster coming into the market. I’m a bit mixed on it. You build the blaster out of the box, and it fires ammo that you have to soak before you fire. It also comes with shell ejection. They also claim ranges of up to 75 feet. Check out the video for more details!
Our cardboard gun kits are available to buy now at http://www.indiegogo.com/papershooters
We created PAPER SHOOTERS™ for two reasons:
1. We like building things
2. We like shooting things
– Plastic shape (skeleton) and all internal mechanics
– Layer one Camo Skin (with rivets/ screws to attach to plastic)
– Layer two Camo Skin (glues onto layer one to add significant detail)
– 8 Gold Shells with 50 pcs of pre made ‘soft splat’ paper ammo
– Mould to make ‘soft splat’ ammo from ordinary paper (never need run out of pellets)
– Zombie head target
New models, camo’s, attachments etc all COMING SOON!
Damn, dat music, dat color correction, those cinematic angles, dat special effect, make this one of the best HvZ promos that I’ve seen.
