There is no denying that we live in an age where more than ever we are actively pulled out of our real lives and into an alternate one, a digital life.

Aliens: Infestation is another game that ties into a movie made in the 80’s, taking place shortly after the events of the Aliens film.  A group of Marines are sent to the Sulaco to investigate what happened to the crew, as well as […]
