We think we’ve finally figured out why the Riddick series has done so well with this fresh Assault on Dark Athena video: Vin Diesel’s gravely voice makes anything sound badass.

Ripsaw MS1 UGV

It’s stuff like this machine gun-equipped Ripsaw MS1 UGV that makes us fear the inevitable robot rebellion, but for now it’s fun to watch it tear through terrain like tissue paper.
