An Interesting Idea: Brownout

Posted by ,

I have been waiting for some good "space western" material to show up on Ideas. Firefly is off limits but that does not mean the genre has to be avoided completely and this Brownout seems to fit the bill.

If the style looks a bit familiar it is, because this project is brought to you by Nick Royer formerly of "Space Troopers" and currently also working on Hyperborea.

If you like rough and tumble sci-fi adventure, or you just want to see what a really impressive LEGO Ideas project looks like, well here you go.

3-for-2 on toys at Argos starting tomorrow

Posted by ,

At last, a decent sale: Argos is offering 3 for 2 on all toys including LEGO, starting tomorrow. You can reserve online tonight then pick up tomorrow, to ensure that you secure what you're after.

With luck Amazon will follow suit and offer 33% off LEGO too, in which case we should see a long 'Bargain Watch' article posted on the home page sometime tomorrow.

Star Citizens Flock to Ideas: F7A Hornet approaching 10,000

Posted by ,

Last week the F7A Hornet was at 4040 support but Cloud Imperium Games, the company behind Star Citizen, which in turn is the source material for the F7A Hornet, published a request for its users to come to Ideas and show their support.

In a single day the project received 3800 more support and it has enjoyed a comfortable ascent since then. At the posting of this article the project is at 9835 support.

This rising tide has caught at least two other Star Citizen projects as well: Star Citizen: Arena Commander and Star Citizen Hornet which are both in the top 12 trending projects.

Posted by ,

LEGO has stated on the official LEGO Bionicle Facebook page that they'll be revealing some more Bionicle 2015 information on this coming Friday. The Brick Fan points out it could be the teaser site that we've already seen. My biggest hope would be for the first official images of some of the finalised sets. We'll likely have to wait until Friday to find out, unless of course LEGO slips up again like they've been showing a pattern of doing with their Bionicle 2015 reveal.

2014 survey results: higher NPS than Apple

Posted by ,

I've ended the survey, thank you to all 1990 of you that participated. You can now view the responses as they are presented by Google Forms. (Don't worry, responses to the email address question have been removed) and read all the comments in a PDF.

I've crunched the numeric responses to the quantitative questions and compared them to those from the 2013 survey, (which you can see via the Wayback machine). I've done this by subtracting the percentage of scores 1-6 from those of 7-10, then calculated how that differed from last year. The results are as follows:
