Garrus: Mass Effect 2

Garrus: Mass Effect 2

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

This Vitruvian Voltron tee may seem anachronistic, but we are talking Da Vinci here: we think a flying fortress made out of robotic lions would be right up the renaissance man’s alley.

The Astronomer’s Dream

Blu-ray: Galaxy Quest

Blu-ray: Galaxy Quest

Sci-fi satire Galaxy Quest hits Blu-ray with Grabthar’s Hammer 11/17; its extras are as eclectic as the film, with a Thermian audio track, Galactopedia, and Sigourney Weaver rapping.

The official domestic trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar is up; a teaser it ain’t, with over three minutes of somewhat weighty dialog, flying Na’Vi, and Sigourney Weaver looking pissed.

BS2: Capture the Sister

BS2: Capture the Sister

This Capture the Sister trailer is perverse enough to give us shivers, but it is BioShock 2; the capture-the-flag multiplayer mode tasks your team with returning Little Sisters to their vents.

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Sci-fi/martial arts flick The Cup Of Tears is extremely low-budget, but we couldn’t tell from this trailer: it’s a hybrid CGI/Live Action film by Gary Short that’s shot using a RED camera.

Note to self: when creepy narrator speaks of Rapture in the third person, RUN (or swim very quickly): this Siren Trailer for Bioshock 2 delivers with a nearly non-stop barrage of gameplay.

Video: Klingon Propaganda

Video: Klingon Propaganda

You’d have to be a targ to not love this Klingon Propaganda video, secretly released (aka viral) to recruit new sons of Kahless; the uniforms and D7 cruisers have a distinct ToS flavor.

Comic Strip Mashups

Ryan Dunlavey’s Comic Strip Mashups awesomely marry science fiction and weekend funnies; Dark Side and Fantastic Family Circus rock, but there’s no beating Spy vs Spy vs AvP.

It’s not quite as comprehensive as the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Generator, but 42 Essential Plot Twists scores points for its twisted creativity–helpfully illustrated with equally twisted drawings.
