    Star Warfare 2 – Payback

    Star Warfare 2 – Payback is a game from Freyr Software I came across in the Apple app store. Right away, it looked like something interesting. This game is a fairly simple sci-fi shooter with a variety of game modes. The story is that a space-faring organization called the UNCC discovered a revolutionary substance on a planet where […]

    ON BASILISK STATION

      I mentioned in a previous post the Honor Harrington series of books by David Weber, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually spoken about them in any depth, so I thought I’d do so now. The first book in the Honorverse is called On Basilisk Station and it is available for free from the […]

    Batman Fans Deserve Better Than Fox’s Gotham

    2014 was an exceptional year for genre nerds. In a span of twelve months, we received cinematic treasures such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. I slated Fox’s Gotham series in as the third and shiniest jewel in my comic book nerd triple crown. Much to my chagrin, I immediately […]

    THE FOUNDATION SERIES by Isaac Asimov

    Probably one of the first “epic” series of science fiction books that I had the pleasure of reading.  The Foundation Series written by Isaac Asimov – a grandmaster of Science Fiction and along with Arthur C. Clarke & L.Ron Hubbard, one of the grandaddies of the genre – is a series of novels spanning a 500 year […]

    Superman For A Modern Time.

    Superman. The man of steel or the big blue boy scout? As legendary as this character is he also happens to be one of the most divisive in today’s modern age. The common complaint I often hear is that people can’t relate enough to him. Fair enough I guess. Warner Bros sort of listened it […]

    Project Almanac: What Happens when Teenagers Time-Travel

Reminiscent of Marty McFly‘s adventures in Back to the Future, screenwriters Andrew Stark and Jason Pagan use teenagers as the vehicle for time-travel wish fulfillment, in the […]

    Chapter II – Deimos Rising “…Now running signature Omega-38 against sequence 430-Alpha” said Dr. Kronos in the darkened research lab, a massive construct sat before him.

    TRANSMORPHERS: FALL OF MAN

    SciFi Buff that I am I thought I had to give this a try … I really, really did try … but this is bad.  No other way to say it really.  The only “actor” that has any skills is good ole B5’s Bruce Boxleiter and lets be honest, he was never that great shakes was […]

    The Future Looks Bright For The X-Films

    For the past 14-years, the X-Men movie franchise has been churning out stories loosely based on Marvel’s seminal comic book series. X-Men: Days Of Future Past (DOFP), the 7th instalment in the movie franchise is without a doubt the most “comic-booky” chapter, which immediately places it in the top tier of the X-movies. Although this […]
