We are mere weeks away from the end of 2018, and usually around this time is a new season of Netflix’s hit series, Stranger Things. However, we fans are have to be a bit more patient, but fortunately, Netflix has dropped some hints about the upcoming third season with a newly-released teaser trailer which includes titles for all eight episodes:
Yes, you read that correctly: L.U.C.H.A.: A Wrestling Sci-Fi Thriller. Now’s THAT’S an attention -grabbing title for a comic book, or practically anything. According to co-creators CW Cooke and Travis Hymel, here’s the main story of their series:
L.U.C.H.A. is the story of Agente, a luchador detective who spends his life solving low level crimes and murders, taking on any job that falls in his lap. He just so happens to get wrapped up in a murder campaign that involves vampires, wrestlers, and other notorious figures before the rug gets pulled out from under him…and the readers!
…and yes, he’s one, UGLY, motherf***er!
Now that I have that quote out of the way, starting TODAY (December 14th) and running through the beginning of January, the Predator, Hollywood’s most-popular alien hunter from John McTiernan’s 1987 sci-fi film (ya’ know, Predator), will be part of a special FREE downloadable content challenge in Ghost Recon: Wildlands where players — either alone or as a groups of up to four — have to fight to survive the hunter’s aggressive onslaught in order to take him down. Should you and/or your team defeat the Predator, you’ll receive his iconic mask (dreadlocks included) and corresponding heat vision. SCORE!

It would be an understatement to say that digital artist Zachary Knoles really touched a soft spot in my heart when he redesigned popular video game titles and some of its prominent characters as aged, dusty covers in the fashion of classic paperback novels. Now that I recall Xenogears‘ complex story, it definitely would have been an interesting read as a sci-fi novel from the 1980’s. More of Knoles work include: Kerrigan from StarCraft II, resembling a drow from an 1990’s Advanced Dungeons & Dragons novel (you’ll see), and Samus Aran getting transformed into a robot from some type of Russian sci-fi (also, you’ll see). Here are some more of Knoles interpretations after the break! Continue reading “Video Games, Reimagined As Classic Paperback Novels”
The Leap is a small iPod sized USB peripheral that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer; it’s almost as if it comes straight from a science fiction movie (mainly Minority Report, more-or-less). Essentially, the precision device senses various types of gestures in a 3D space, and can be used for a whole variety of games, programs and applications (more so than Kinect typically working well with nothing else besides the Dance Central and Fruit Ninja games).
