What metal based wind instrument can DJ play better than he can pronounce? It also doubles as a fire detection method, but that'll all make sense later. The Five Nights at Freddy's developer Scott Cawthorne is joining the small, but dedicated, ranks of creators to open their franchise to community development. The Fazbear Fanverse initiative introduces projects by community members with the full support of the developer - up to and including merchandise. We wish more developers would share the love. Instead of going to conventions this year, DC held a FanDome event. Amid an endless stream of new games and tv shows, they revealed more about Robert Pattinson's The Batman. Turns out DJ isn't just a Marvel hippie, he likes DC too. At $20 each, a set of fire detecting wind chimes probably aren't what you want for Christmas, but a grid of these in a forest can detect fires and report them back to base with no battery needed. Now we just need one for flame wars. This week, DJ dropped in to kill tons of robots. Professor bootstrapped industry on a small island and spent a lot of time waiting.
