Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Update

TVWise has uncovered some new details on the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Blood & Chrome. The Visual Effects for the 2 hour pilot were delivered last October, but Syfy is now mulling over whether to make the pilot into a full series. If the series is picked up, the network might hold onto it and release it as a first episode. One way or the other, this pilot will be released to viewers. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m hoping this turns into a series. Forget Star Trek or Stargate, we are living in a future where you can’t even see spaceships on television. Does that sound like a world you want to live in?

Mass Effect 3 Shows Vancouver 176 Years in the Future

Vancity Buzz has collected a number of screenshots that depict Vancouver as part of a futuristic megacity that’s amalgamated with Seattle. In this screenshot you can clearly see the Vancouver Convention center as Commander Shepard awaits his trial at the hands of the Human Systems Alliance. In the new trailer, we can see Burrard inlet being savaged by Reaver invaders. I love how you can still make out the suburbs around the bottom of the North Shore mountains. Too many futuristic cities are designed with 100% urbanization in mind, and that is completely at odds with the culture here in Lotus Land. And with all these aliens bringing the property values down, we can hope for a future when our great grandchildren finally, finally can afford 900 square feet in the West End. The rest of the screenshots can be found here and here.
