Countless serialized TV shows with a hint of sci-fi were greenlit in the wake of Lost’s success, but few had as much potential as Heroes. The story began with a group of seemingly ordinary people from around the world discovering the superhuman abilities locked within them. The show became a critical and commercial hit… until the show lost focus. More →
The gaming community is sick to death of the endless stream of sequels, reboots, remasters and revivals that publishers have been trotting out over the past two console generations, but there are certain franchises that we still aren’t ready to be put to bed. One of those franchises is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, which is returning to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this fall. More →
