is a Danish electro-pop singer-songwriter who recently released her debut album, No Mythologies to Follow. She also created an exclusive playlist of her favorite songs for Music Unlimited. Listen here.

MO_Blog

MØ is not only an amazing electropop singer and performer, she used to be a fanatical gamer too. Growing up in Denmark she spent hours playing games on her brother’s computer. The one she remembers most vividly was called Diablo. “It was all about strategic fantasy shooting, role playing and magic. It was like World of Warcraft but in the ‘90s. I used to fight with a bow-carrying Amazonian girl — all the other characters were boys.”

Born Karen Marie Ørsted, MØ has a real life thing for tough, independent women. If she could create a fantasy character, the 25-year-old performer says, it would be an extreme fighting, kickboxing girl. “She will have robot body parts and she will fight with crazy moves and weird sound effects,” MØ says.

NaomiIGN’s Naomi Kyle

“If the music keeps me in the intensity of the game without distracting me — then it’s a winner. It’s a double winner if the track serves as a much needed refresher to a game’s mediocre soundtrack. Games with little or no music? I just have fun overdubbing with these favorites listed below. It’s a great way to change up the experience and make it your own.” – Naomi

Technology is all around us. It helps us communicate with friends, make ourselves a fancy latte with just the press of a button, and enjoy our favorite music and movies while on the go. But what if technology had a mind of its own or was used in a way to cause more harm than good?

TerminatorBlog

Today’s theatrical release of Transcendence, featuring the man of many talents Johnny Depp, got us thinking about that very question. While noodling over the answer, our minds wandered a bit to think of some other movies that show what happens when technology goes bad – or takes over completely. Here’s what we came up with:

  1. Terminator Salvation
  2. The Matrix
  3. Minority Report
  4. Transformers: Dark of the Moon
  5. Star Trek: First Contact
  6. I Robot
  7. Wall-E
  8. Tron: Legacy
  9. Event Horizon
  10. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
