30 CommentsPosted by Jeremy Conrad on April 15, 2011 under Featured, Lists
With HBO's Game of Thrones hitting screens this weekend, we started to think what other big fantasy and science fiction books should also be translated to the screen. And it wasn't hard to come up with at least ten different series for this list. From space epics, hard science, to Lord of the Rings-style fantasy; there's something on here for almost everyone. Ender's Game Despite your pe... more.

The Green Lantern movie hits theaters in just over two months, which is just enough time to get caught up on the character in the form of comics. Green Lantern isn't as well known as Superman or Batman, and a good comparison would be that in terms of familiarity he's about on the same level Iron Man was prior to the first movie. But if you're a science fiction fan, you should really read Green L... more.

In these days when almost any movie can get a sequel just for getting a few butts in a theater seat (three Step Ups, really?), it baffles the mind how some great science fiction movies haven't seen a sequel yet. There were some seriously awesome movies that could turn into great franchises, if just given the chance with another movie. Below are five that we would kill to see receive a sequel or ... more.
7 Questionable, Yet Widely Accepted Devices in SciFi
15 CommentsPosted by Chris Wojcek on under Featured, Lists
The great thing about science fiction is that you can come up with a cool device, and it can work without any explanation what so ever. The bad thing about these tools is that sometimes additional uses are seen or talked about, only to rarely or never be used that way again. Or, on the other side, there are things which are given very little explanation, and thus, leave the viewer or read... more.

The ever controversial Rockstar Games does one thing very well; open world gameplay. While most of their franchises aren't for everyone, they really do have dark story driven sandbox games down to an art. And ever since they took on the spirtual sequel to Red Dead Revolver, it's got me thinking;... more.

Every epic adventure is not without its dangers. Frodo knew he’d be carrying a ring that would possess him, and that eventually he’d have to deal with a lake of fire. Luke knew he’d have to fight the space equivalent of Hitler. Kirk knew there’d be a chance of catching something from that green chick. But what if the adventure is for a fifteen-year-old nature enthusiast? With... more.

Despite what some may think, BioWare's success with The Old Republic is not a sure thing. The Massively Multiplayer Online RPG market is a very competitive one, and developers cannot be lazy or arrogant and think they'll just sweep in and dethrone World of Warcraft. The game also can't just rely on its license as saying "It's Star Wars" isn't enough, because if it were Star Wars Galaxies would b... more.
