What We Saw on the Set of Star Trek Beyond

What We Saw on the Set of Star Trek Beyond

Things are not looking good for the crew of the USS Enterprise. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto), Dr. McCoy (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) are standing on the dark, battered bridge of a ship that is not the Enterprise… and that seems to be barely functioning at all. Spock is wounded, and while Kirk is giving him a pep talk, it’s clear that some bad s#!t has gone down for Starfleet’s finest. “We have no ship, no crew!” yells Kirk. Space… the final frontier, indeed. It’s August of 2015 and I’m on the Vancouver set of Star Trek Beyond, the third film in J.J. Abrams’ rebooted big-screen series.

Cliff Bleszinski Reveals His Favorite Gears of War Game

Cliff Bleszinski Reveals His Favorite Gears of War Game

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski stopped by the IGN office to discuss his history at Epic Games and shared with us why his favorite entry in Microsoft’s beloved cover-based shooter series is Gears of War 3. In the latest episode of IGN Unfiltered, the Boss Key Productions co-founder said that while many still believe Gears 1 is the series’ best installment, the third entry tops his list because “that’s where we really honed things and had dedicated servers and everything. We had multiple game types, different characters, women in the battle…. It was cool.” For Bleszinski, Gears of War 3 was “kind of the culmination of everything,” with the game’s conclusion serving as a metaphor for his experience relaxing on the Carolina coast, and the character Anya Stroud (and her relationship with Marcus Fenix) drawing inspiration from his wife Lauren.
