Nerds! Geeks! Other people! Babbleon5.wordpress.com has become…. BabbleOn5.com! Well…. technically we already were, but we were just forwarding the site from babbleon5.wordpress.com because free and stuff. But it’s time we started kicking things in to overdrive here, so we’ve overhauled the site. We made it pretty. Look at how pretty it is.
I made it myself.
So, if you’re like me, and like pretty things, make sure you reset any saved links you might have had if they need resetting! See you on the other site!
We’re just over a month away from the launch of The Force Awakens, and we couldn’t be more excited! Or, at least, we thought we couldn’t! A new trailer for the upcoming film has debuted in Japan, and it has revealed some interesting new scenes, and even more interesting sound clips!
Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments!
SHUT YOUR FRACKIN’ MOUTH!
The crazy Connecticut… ians? are the source of a Thorium Powered Car that only needs to be refueled once a century. WHAT?! Laser Power Systems have developed an engine powered by the incredibly dense material known as Thorium.
Thorium is so dense that according to Charles Stevens (CEO) “one gram yields more energy than 7, 396 gallons of gasoline, and 8 grams would power the typical car for a century.”

Yesterday, Tickets to ‘Starwars: The Force Awakens’ went on sale and immediately crashed numerous websites. Yours truly managed to snag an IMAX 3D showing on opening night Dec. 18th, 2015 (2 months out)! Shortly after, the trailer hit the interwebs and hit 200k views in a matter of 20 minutes. Today, it’s been viewed close to 13 MILLION times (10 of those are my contributions). The trailer is below if you haven’t yet watched it. Be prepare to get swept up in all the feels.
Look, we all know that video game movies generally leave something (or a few things) to be desired. But we here at BabbleOn5 think that they’re just an Iron Man (2008) away from taking off as Hollywood’s next big genre film.
Hopefully leading that charge is 2016’s Assassin’s Creed, starring X-Men actor Michael Fassbender. The dude killed it as a younger Magneto, and he’s proven time and time again that he is quite the talented actor.
Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch’s ancestor Aguilar. He certainly looks the part.
Assassin’s Creed has developed in to one of gamings top franchises over the years, creating some pretty fascinating characters along the way. However, Fassbender won’t be playing any of them. Instead, he’ll be playing an original character for the movies: Callum Lynch (doesn’t sound anywhere near as cool as Assassin’s Creed II’s Ezio Auditore).
Yahoo has a bit more on the subject, “Fassbender’s character was created specifically for the film. (The movie isn’t retelling any of the existing games, but rather introducing new characters into the same world.) Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day.”
Yahoo also noted that filming begins this coming Monday at locations that include: Malta, London, and Spain. Assassin’s Creed also stars Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ariane Labed, and is directed by Justin Kurzel. The film will hit theaters on December 21st, 2016.
My favorite part of Disneyland was always the ‘Star Tours’ ride. However, the recent revamp has left me unsatisfied and a little disappointed..
There is A New Hope! Star Wars Land is coming to Anaheim and Orlando. Over 14 acres each, it’s Disney’s largest single themed land expansion ever. Disney’s goal, “transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”
Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, had this to say:
“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”
Some concept art after the jump:

Remember a couple weeks ago when Babble reported on the performance enhancing drugs scandal of the eSport arena? Remember how it sounded riiiiidiculous? Well, it’s actually THIS serious. Check the vid for a really awesome explanation by @hingers… don’t get distracted by the aussie accent coming from his cute asian face though. LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.
But Kory Friesen, I thought you didn’t care! Why the retraction?!
Holy shit, this thing works better than I thought possible! Lexus has released video of pro skaters riding their hoverboard for the first time. DUDE!
