The movie Aliens scared me almost as much as the first film back when I was a kid. Alien Vs. Predator wasn’t so bad as I was much older and immune to fear, at least until Alien: Isolation proved otherwise. Now all three are digital pinball tables. These I can handle.
Last year, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence got a major boost when Russian billionaire Yuri Milner unveiled a $100 million effort to scan the skies for radio and light signals emitted by aliens. Not content to simply sit tight and wait for ET to hail us, Milner now plans to build interstellar spacecraft.…
To recap: Colonial Marines was shit. But where Gearbox and friends failed, a very dedicated fan is still plugging away trying to make things right.
It’s weird, for all its influence in both games and film, not that many people cosplay as characters from the Alien series. So it’s awesome seeing this ver1sa, not just because it’s OG 1979 Ripley, but because it’s so good.
Groundbreaking sitcom Mork and Mindy was always doomed to fail. This weird comedy about an alien and his human pal reached a U.S. audience of 60 million viewers every week, and launched Robin Williams’ career. And then, it tanked. We talked to the show’s writers and director, who told us the fascinating story of the…
When Ridley Scott’s Prometheus hit theaters, it was polarizing for a bunch of reasons. Some of the biggest were its connections to Alien, which created more questions than they answered.
The people chasing secrets in Grand Theft Auto think they’ve made a breakthrough. They say they’ve found evidence that suggests that maybe there’s a way to get abducted by aliens in-game...without the help of mods or cheats.
Some GTA players have been scouring every inch of Los Santos in the hopes of finding a fabled jetpack or an alien mystery for two years now. So far, they haven’t found their treasure—but they have found some other poignant things along the way.
The Sims 4's first expansion pack comes out this week. In addition to all the cool new career-focused additions Get To Work brings to the game, it also adds aliens into the mix. Here's what you need to do to find them.
Artist Marek Okon recently had an idea: what if instead of trying to shoot the Aliens, we could control them instead? It's a premise that's actually been explored in the universe's fiction before, but that certainly didn't look as cool as this concept does.
The Hum: Abductions is a horror game that looks like what you would get if you mixed P.T., Gone Home, and aliens. Meaning: it looks excellent.
In a recent interview, Simpsons executive producer Al Jean estimates there's a "50-50" chance we'll get a sequel to 2007's The Simpson Movie. He also revealed that January 4th's alien abduction episode – 'The Man Who Came to Be Dinner" – almost provided the plot line for said sequel.
Sometimes it seems like every villain is obsessed with murdering the hero of the story. (Or making the hero realize they're alike.) But it's not true — in fact, some of the best villains have their own goals, and the hero just happens to get in the way. Here are some great villains whose schemes don't revolve around…
Despite what happened with Aliens: Colonial Marines, the original Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 is a quintessential PC game, and one that deserves a fair shake.
With TGS and a handful of new Metal Gear Solid V footage behind, Outside Xbox's clip weaves further the web of never ending fan theories about the game's plot and the characters' backgrounds.
We're still seeing fallout from one of the biggest video game flops in recent history, and some recent court documents reveal a number of juicy details that give us a behind-the-scenes look at the marketing of Aliens: Colonial Marines, including internal e-mails and some jargon-filled PR plans that are as insane…
Swiss artist H.R. Giger, made famous for his work designing the iconic creatures in the Aliens series, has passed away at the age of 74.
There's a reason that the first word in the next game based on 20th Century Fox's sci-fi horror franchise is singular. Alien: Isolation will be taking its cues from Ridley Scott's slower, more atmospheric 1979 original. That means no space marines and no P5000 power loader. Just you and one big, scary Xenomorph. Which…
Maybe learning to survive a hostile alien world wouldn't be so bad...well, not if it was this pretty.
