State of Syn Web Series

It’s a Stargate: Atlantis reunion! Jewel Staite (Stargate‘s Jennifer Keller), David Hewlett (Stargate‘s Rodney McKay), and Rainbow Francks (Stargate‘s Aiden Ford) have all assumed major roles on a new 3D web comic series titled State of Syn. Additionally, fans will be happy to hear the voice of Torri Higginson (Stargate‘s Elizabeth Weir) in the opening narration of each webisode.

This science fiction web drama created by Daniel Dales and Jarett Sherman, features a combination of voice-overs, photography, and comic still drawing and animation. Directed by Jed Weintrob, State of Syn plays out like a live comic in approximately five-minute segments; similar in length to a single issue. The images serve as moving panels, transporting the viewer from one scene to the next. Adding to cross-platform element of the show, the fans can also get involved with an “interactive companion game for IOS and Android devices.”

Curious? See the first two episodes for yourself and read a State of Syn’s teaser description below.

Thor: Hammer of the Gods

If you found yourself spending hours playing Angry Birds, then here’s something even better: a new online game called Thor: Hammer of The Gods.

In this free web game, which is a tie-in to Marvel’s upcoming Thor movie, you fight in Asgard as Thor against the Frost Giants. When you defeat enough enemies — by throwing the mighty Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer! — in a certain amount of rounds, it unlocks trophies, which contain footage from the film and character bios. You can also choose to sign into the game through your Facebook account so you can compete against others.

I’m not going to lie, this game is addictive. Once you wield the power of Mjolnir, you just can’t stop! Check out my badass score in the screenshot above — not bad for my first try! (I probably would have done better had I maybe read the brief instructions on how throw the hammer, but I don’t have the patience for that.)

Angry Birds is one of the most popular games/apps of all-time, nearing 100 million downloads so far. So it should come as no surprise that multiple plans are in motion for other platforms, spin-offs, and adaptations are well in the works.

The company behind Angry Birds, Rovio, has revealed that they have a new version of the title currently on the way for none other than Facebook. Rovio’s Mikael Hed says the game will have new aspects to it that players haven’t seen on other platforms, and that because of the “collaborative nature,” the pigs will play a bigger part.

This comes after it had already been revealed that the ornithological projectiles were making their way to most game platforms including PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Sarah Jane - Defending Bannerman Road

Doctor Who fans, as well as some of our younger readers, might be interested in a new online Flash game released at the BBC website. The game focuses on The Sarah Jane Adventures, and is entitled Defending Bannerman Road.

Essentially, the game is like Angry Birds, with the exception that you’re shooting out rocks and objects to squash aliens from the Doctor Who universe including the Sontarans, the Judoon, and the Slitheen.

In addition, there’s also an online motion comic that follows the story of the game, as well as a video of tips from Daniel Anthony, who plays Clyde Langer in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

A few new videos have been released showing off Telltale Games’ episodic video game adaptation of the classic Back to the Future, including a new trailer.

Back to the Future: The Game will be delivered in chapters and will be available via download on PlayStation 3, PC, and certain Apple products like the iPad. The story takes place not too long after the end of Back to the Future III with Marty McFly back to doing normal every day things. But when the DeLorean shows up out of nowhere, Marty will find himself back on an adventure through time trying to find Doc (Christopher Lloyd), who’s stranded somewhere.

You can click on over to the other side now to see the videos. The first is the trailer, while the other three look at the making of the game, including what it’s about, who’s involved, and what to expect. The high point has to be A.J. LoCascio, who was cast to do the voice of Marty when Michael J. Fox wasn’t able to. This was a major concern of fans, but you’ll be excited to hear just how close LoCascio’s impression is!

Doctor Who Adventure GamesIf you’re a Doctor Who fan and the Christmas Special as well as the Doctor Who Proms being aired on BBC America just aren’t enough Time Lord insanity for you, then you’re in luck: the BBC has announced that the fourth and final Doctor Who Adventure Game is to be released online just after A Christmas Carol is screened on UK television.

The best part? The “monsters” in this game are the Vashta Nerada, the swarming shadows that consume flesh. Fans may remember that the Vashta Nerada first appeared in Silence In The Library and Forest of the Dead, the two episodes written by Steven Moffat that introduced the character of River Song. And while those episodes saw David Tennant‘s 10th Doctor attempt to outwit the shadow creatures, in this online game, it will be Matt Smith‘s 11th incarnation of the Doctor who’ll battle the threat, along with companion Amy Pond.
