Otherside Entertainment, currently developing the Kickstarted Underworld Ascendant, has revealed that they're developing a new entry in the System Shock series, the last of which was released in the tail end of 1999. Here's why that's a big deal. Back in 1994 gaming was in a very different...
Space Elevators, Magnetic Boots, and AR: The Futuristic Tech Of Tacoma
on July 13, 2015 at 04:00 PM
Gone Home transported players back to the ‘90s, putting them in a house full of audio cassettes, trapper keepers, and VHS tapes. Since Tacoma is set in 2088, Fullbright won’t have these nostalgic touchstones to establish a familiar setting. The mysterious space station immerses players in...
Is Terminator: Genisys Worth Your Time?
on July 03, 2015 at 05:00 PM
Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of the greatest action films ever made. Maybe the best. The 1991 blockbuster set new standards in computer effects with the iconic liquid T-1000 while still hitting audiences with gritty, explosive practical effects. Unfortunately, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines...
Test Chamber – Blasting Off With Sid Meier's Starships
on February 24, 2015 at 07:39 PM
Firaxis' Beyond Earth took the beloved Civilization formula and shot it into space where players got to terraform a planet and interact with exotic alien life.

Fight For The Top 50 2014 - Alien: Isolation
on November 27, 2014 at 02:00 PM
For last year's Fight for the Top 50 games of the year challenge, I championed a game all about a survivor trying to overcome an alien menace in the far reaches of space. Now I'm back again this year arguing why Amanda Ripley's harrowing adventure in Alien: Isolation deserves to be on 2014's...
Opinion – Why Cassandra Is My New Garrus
on November 26, 2014 at 01:06 PM
Everybody loves Garrus from Mass Effect. He knows that you need to break some eggs to make an omelet. He understands when you do something he doesn’t like. He’s always on your side. In short, he’s the perfect ally, and I couldn’t imagine anyone better by my side in an RPG. Then...

Indie Developers Tackle The Final Frontier
on December 29, 2013 at 04:00 PM

Titanfall And Relatable Sci-Fi
on June 24, 2013 at 02:00 PM
One of the questions we had for Respawn was why the studio wanted to go down the sci-fi route with Titanfall. The reason came down to simple pragmatism. “There’s only so far you can go if you’re portraying [a conventional] military,” says game director Steve Fukuda. “A big...

When it comes to video games, sci-fi fans have always been blessed. Not only has there always been an abundance of games set in the final frontier, but select sci-fi franchises have played an important role in the industry.
