Sometimes the classics are the best, and in the wake of last summer’s Pacific Rim blockbuster it does seem like it’s time to welcome back the original King of the Kaiju.
Rising from the sea of movies based on other media comes the galactic empire science fiction thriller Jupiter Ascending.
“This newly discovered planet is relatively young, approximately 13 million years old, and still glows from residual heat from its formation. The planet is about 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit, and emits most of its energy as infrared, rather than visible light. Its mass is eleven times that of Jupiter, and it orbits more than 20 times farther from its host star than Neptune from our sun.”
This new 3D galactic space war game from Barbily Game Ltd. for iOS and Android looks, feels and plays a lot like ‘HomeWorld”, except for the strange preschooler-appropriate funny animal theming.

Pooky Amsterdam’s ‘Time Travellers’ is machinema shot entirely in Second Life.
Machines that serve us more than we serve them is a guarantee as long as we are smarter than they are. What happens when this changes?
Time Travelers is an animated web science fiction adventure series created using Second Life as the graphical and animation engine in a creative process called machinima. In it, three teens – Sofia, Trevor and Mariah – travel forward in time to become newly minted Mek fighters – defenders of the future. They must protect a mysterious and growing ORB from the onslaught, and must learn to understand and control their powers in a fight against a Singularity gone bad.
Global crises, robotic acceleration and survival in a post-singularity world are themes, which propel the action. Will humanity’s strengths affect change for the good, or will our weaknesses allow a more sinister plan to emerge? Central characters demonstrate the consequences of technology, both good and bad, while highlighting important questions relevant today.
The series now with a newly released Episode 5 has won laurels from the Los Angeles Movie Awards and been shown at Animation festivals such as Blue Plum and New Media Film Festival.
If it exists, there is filk of it. That’s one of the remarkable things about having a radio station like ours – you get to play all sorts of music most radio stations would never even consider. Today, we found a Minecraft music video to share with you, thanks to Krypton Radio talent scout Charles Raven.
Minecraft, if you’ve been living under a large cubical grass covered rock, is one of the most popular games on the planet. In it, the world is made of huge blocks, a visual throwback to the earliest days of gaming where everything (including your player avatar) was made of enormous pixels. What makes Minecraft so engaging isn’t the visual detail in its 3D player environment – it’s the richness of the underlying world that the huge blocks represents. Players can build anything they can imagine using very simple tools; there is also a scripting language interface, and you can write scripts in the Python scripting language to create almost anything. The ability to control Mindcraft using scripts you make yourself has given rise to a remarkable amount of machinema – videos created using games as the visual medium rather than taking a camera and going out into the real world.
Take, for example, today’s Video Of The Day: In Search OfDiamonds,by Eric Fullerton of Huntsville, Alabama. Eric is a sound engineer and composer for film and video, but in his spare time he not only creates music (and music videos) about Minecraft, but a lot of his own original songs as well. He’s well known in the Minecraft online community for the quality of his music and machinema.

Redditor ‘morphinapg’ has edited the cutscenes and gameplay of all three Uncharted games into feature films. He uses the least amount of gameplay needed to set up the next story sequence that leads into the next cut scene. The results are very watchable.
