Oblivion

I REALLY enjoyed this movie.  I don't want to sound like a pessimist, but these days when I go see a movie I have very low expectations.  I could count the number of truly good movies I've seen in the past three years on one or two hands.  So I set my expectations very low, and occassionally I'm slightly pleasantly surprised.

I'll go see any sci fi movie that doesn't look totally stupid.  (I'm not someone who believes in such a thing as a movie so bad it's good.)  I  thought the trailers for Oblivion looked interesting, but I wasn't really expecting it to be a great movie.  At the most I was hoping for some good eye candy.

Instead, it was a great movie.  Now I know that Hollywood CAN make a movie with great special effects AND a great story.  There are a few plot twists in the movie, so if it's not too late, I really recommend you see it and avoid any chance of spoilers until you do.

300i Rendered with In-Game Engine; Interview with Chris Roberts



Here's a great interview with creator Chris Roberts about the much anticipated Star Citizen space simulator.  We also get a sneak peak at the 300i, a very sex ship shown rendered using the in-game engine. 


The level of fidelity and immersion in this game is going to be out of this world.  Alpha starts this fall. I can't remember ever being this excited for a game.  This is what I always wished EVE was, only better.

Ship Customization in Star Citizen



Here's a great article on how ship modifications are going to work in Star Citizen. Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun designing your own personal ship. I also like that you can just take a "factory model" out if you're in a hurry to get into the action.




I believe alpha is due to start in November or December of this year. It only takes a $30 buy-in to get the full game AND access to the alpha and beta. It's a steal if you ask me. I'm already planning on upgrading my ship, and I'll still have spent less than I spent for Borderlands 2.

Flight Physics in Star Citizen

Check out this video to see a sneak peek on how the physics work in Star Citizen. No more submarines in space!  I love how you can actually see the thrusters firing to maneuver the craft.

Check Out Star Citizen

Sure most of you already know about this, but check out the new space similator from the creator of Wing Commander.  Star Citizen, Nov. 2014.  To say this game looks bad-ass is a HUGE understatement.  Finally, Newtonian physics and dogfighting!  (If you decide to support the game, please use the link above, as I'll get some swag!)

You start out the game of Star Citizen in a single-player campaign, called Squadron 42.  During this time you learn the game, and earn some money.  Once you finish your tour of duty, the whole universe opens up to you.  Here is a video preview of Squadron 42.
