1. Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator
Yes, I know. Battlefied 3 was here several times before, so you may think “why again”. The answer is simple – haven’t seen this kind of a game play before. And obviously it’s not about the game and graphics. OK, there were some 360 virtual gaming things, but nothing like what the guys from The Gadget show built. An ultimate gaming simulator that takes the player a way further into the game. The video, uploaded on October 17th, got more than 1,6 million views, For those who still can’t get enough, here’s a Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer. Definitively would like to see the simulator live – Christmas are coming, dear Santa, thanks a lot in advance.

5. Specsavers “Sauna”
People in the Nordic countries enjoyed sauna centuries ago and thanks to them it got spread all around the world. It’s healthy, relaxing and refreshing. But as misunderstandings happen daily and everywhere, always double check if you’re really where you think you are . Or face the consequences. Specsavers, a UK optician brand, gives a hint why to get the new lenses in their new ad.
