Life

Release Date: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $19.96 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: It’s hard not to think about Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant when watching the trailers and promotional footage for Life. With a similar basic story and genre elements, it might even be easier to write off Life as nothing more than a rip off of the original Alien, as a team of astronauts and scientists are forced to fight for their lives against an evolving alien lifeform wreaking havoc on their spaceship. Nonetheless, while Life isn’t nearly as inventive, scary, or gloriously moody as that 1979 classic, it does manage to carve out a suitable space for itself in the sci-fi genre as a fun, often grotesque story about what men and women of this profession will do to protect life at all costs.

God Wars: Future Past

Release Date: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

  • See it on Amazon for $29.08 (PS4); or $31.99 with Prime (Vita)

Get Even

Release Date: Friday, June 23, 2017

  • See it on Steam for $29.99 (PC)
  • Also downloadable on PS4 & Xbox One

A new breed of first-person action game, Get Even subtlety removes the classic division between single-player and multiplayer experiences to unfold two linked stories. The game’s plot revolves around the memories of its central heroes which have a dramatic effect on how the game progresses. The route the player chooses to follow determines their personality as the game unfolds. The carefully crafted storyline mixes elements of thriller and horror with exploration. As these personality traits are revealed, the merging of single-player and multiplayer elements tighten. When players embark on a single-player mission, others on the network can join the quest as enemies, so players never know whether their opponents are human or CPU-based. This suspense further heightens the player’s feeling of a threat.
