Nerf's new Blaster range is genuinely intimidating

Guns aren't cool.

Nerf Blasters, on the other hand, have always held a certain allure that no amount of maturity can dampen. 

When we were kids (that's the eighties and nineties), Nerf Blasters held a handful of foam darts that struggled to travel in a straight line across a living room. This invariably meant that a) you really didn't mean to shoot your brother in the eye and b) you lost the majority of your projectiles within the first week of use. 

So it's with a muttering of "Kids these days..." that we browse through Nerf's latest range of 'toys'. Some can fire darts at 70mph. Some have modular upgrades. Some cost over £50. And they all look like they belong in a new Aliens film.

Play safe kids.
