A VR film company is rebooting the movie that taught many kids to fear the hell out of virtual reality. Jaunt announced that it’s developing a new series based on the 1992 cult classic The Lawnmower Man, only viewable with a virtual reality headset.
I admit, I have not seen the new movie Passengers. I have, however, read what the plot is about from various places, including this nicely detailed account. When I heard the basic story, it reminded me of something. Something I saw in an old book about spaceships. A comic. A weird, creepy, old ‘50s comic.
If the last week is any indication, America’s in for a very weird, fractious four years. The country feels split by lava-filled fault lines and any path forward feels like it’s going to be tough to endure. Good thing a great science fiction movie all about finding ways to talk to alien lifeforms just came out.
In the far future depicted in this fan art, Link likely has an easier time dealing with Navi’s nagging. Who is now a robot. That can most likely be turned off. Isn’t the future great?
At face value, Killing Time at Lightspeed looks like a browser-based text adventure, or perhaps some sort of dated social-media app you found on a phone you left in a drawer and forgot you had. But at its heart, KTAL is much more than that, using all the best elements of text-based adventures to bear a point-and-click…
It’s been twelve years since F-Zero Climax. That’s over a decade that Captain Falcon has been falcon punching and thrusting away—in a less savoury fashion—on the Super Smash Bros. stage without so much as thinking of the Blue Falcon. Although it’s been a joy seeing his (fantastic) legs far more since he traded in the…
Darth Vader is nowhere near the young Jedi. Taking official numbers into account, MrSundayMovies carefully calculated how many people Luke killed in the original Star Wars trilogy. It’s a staggering 369,470. Dammit, Luke.
Here’s proof from YouTuber Max Nicholson that some good music and editing can even make Episode I, II and III look good.
Whether we are talking about a distant planet in a galaxy far far away or uncanny living creatures that are half-men and half-spiders, Mother Nature is ruthless and its rules apply the same everywhere. Make sure you don’t miss the twist at the end of this short because it’s so damn good.
Explosions, gunshots, and car crashes may not stop the Terminator, but even a cyborg assassin from the future isn’t immune to the aging process. Here’s a scientific look at the Terminator’s organic bits.
A new starting area, tweaked visuals, sweeping profession balance changes—today the fourteen-year-old Anarchy Online received the biggest update its seen in ages, as well as the first $15 from me since I stopped playing in 2005.
Galactic Battles is a short film that laughs at the idea of a mere cameo.
This is The Leviathan. It's probably the best way you can spend four minutes of your time, at least for today.
From sci-fi references to artistic nods, the Mass Effect series has numerous connections to the real world—this video, narrated by none other than Commander Shepard (or Mark Meer if you will) himself, looks at some of them.
Especially when said huge battleships are Minecraft creations.
Douglas Adams dreamt up the Starship Titanic in 1982 as a half-page gag in Life, the Universe and Everything, the third book of the Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy ‘trilogy in five parts.’
This is one of the most amazing craftsmen I have ever seen. He doesn't only make the exterior of his sci-fi ships using just paper but also the guts! The level of detail is amazing—some look like perfect resin models but it's only paper. Behold the X-Wing, TIE Interceptor, Viper Mk2, 2001's Orion and many more!
