Eddy Chen – one half of Australian duo Two Set Violin – performs Pachelbel’s ‘Canon’ on a brace of Yellow Screaming Rubber Chicken Kids Baby Toy Squeak Squeaker Chew Gifts.

Naturally, you enjoyed that.

Behold the bewilderingly overpopulated, open world, first person, memory-gobbling RPGs of Brilliant Game Studios.

In The Ultimate Battle Simulator (top) players pit vast armies against one another. Above, 300 Jedi knights versus 60,000 medieval foot soldiers. Or if you prefer, a pitched battle between 20,000 Jedi and 20,000 Darth Mauls.
