Imagine you’re immersed in your favorite game.  You’re stranded on a beach, trying to collect items to use for your survival.  The graphics are excellent; you can see the sun’s rays glinting off of the water, the light radiating off the sand.  But that’s not all.  As you roam the beach, you can actually SMELL the scent of salt water in the air, the stench of rotting seaweed, a warm breeze blowing on your face, the feel of the ocean spray on your skin.  Talk about adding a new dimension to gaming!

It might sound too good to be true, but it’s very, very real.  Manufactured by FeelReal, this virtual reality mask brings the gaming… Continue reading

EmmaI wanted to love “Once Upon a Time.”  I think I did at one time.  With such a large cast, there are characters we’re going to love and ones we’re going to hate. It’s inevitable. And while I did favor the villains (Regina, Mr. Gold, etc), I always had a soft spot for the “good guys.”  That is, until this current season, when I came to a realization about this show:  it’s really all about Emma.

And the worst part is, she knows it.  I mean, most shows do gravitate around a particular character and the difficulties they encounter, the struggles they’ve endured.  But a kind of “reset button” is pushed from week to week that sort of grounds said character… Continue reading

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer-350Any dedicated fan of the show has no doubt witnessed what our favorite group of survivors has had to endure throughout their time in the apocalypse. Life as they once knew it is gone, and the constant search for food, water and supplies (along with the brutality of their environment) takes its daily toll.

And as the story continues, we can see how the characters change – some for the better, and some for the worse. But perhaps the most dramatic and controversial change can be seen in the inhabitants of Terminus.

[Spoiler Alert – if you’re not up to speed on TWD, stop reading here!]

So what do we know about Terminus? We know that it was… Continue reading

We-Are-Back350And I’m thirlled!   It’s been such a terribly long hiatus – I never meant to be away this long.  So much has happened since the last time I posted in 2012.  Nevertheless, the site is up and running again, and that’s all that matters.

What’s awesome is that the shows that I love to watch have really changed so much, and there’s so much more to talk about now.   So there will be some commentary regarding those, maybe a few reviews on some new (or not so new games), a movie here or there, and the occasional opinionated article by yours truly from time to time.  Oh, and walkers (zombies).  We’re definitely going to be talking about those.

I’m dealing with… Continue reading

I know, I know – it’s such a cliché to say this, but it really does seem like it was just yesterday when Science Fiction Zone was brought into existence.  And yet we’re one year old this month!

Before I begin, I just want to start off with a HUGE thank you to our readers, followers and fans.  I seriously cannot thank you enough for your support and participation on this site, our Facebook page and our Twitter page.  Without you, the site would have been a distant memory by now. You guys are AWESOME!

It’s amazing how many changes can take place in one calendar year.  At the urging of two very good friends, I decided to launch SFZ.  In those… Continue reading
