Battlestar Galactica Props and Costumes Collection
27 January 2010
Excerpt: This is Jack Cibrian. He really likes Battlestar Galactica . So much so that he's amassed a frakkin' crazy collection of props from the recent BSG Propworx auctions . Jack put his encyclopedic knowledge of BSG to good use by winning our "Dinner with the Admiral" contest . We took a trip out to Jack's home to survey his collection and convince his wife, Kelly, to turn the living room into the CIC. No such luck. Behold the Battlestar bounty found in this New Jersey...
Conclusion: As far as soccer games go, PES2008 is still worthy of the number one spot. As mentioned prior, apart from the graphic enhancements and the Teamvision AI, there isn’t much difference between this and previous incarnations of the PES series. But having said that, there isn’t much need for change.
Excerpt: Diehard fans of the popular Battlestar Galactica TV series have a new action-packed,
space combat interactive game available for Windows PC and Xbox LIVE® Arcade.
Play to defend the Galactica or play as the ruthless Cylons. In the recently
released Battlestar Galactica, developed by Australian-based Auran
Games and produced by a partnership between NBC Universal and Sierra Online,
players can pilot various ships and complete ten memorable single-player missions
Excerpt: game was released on the Xbox a few years back and it had gamers playing as young William "Husker" Adama in his first flights in the war against the evil Cylon forces. So this many years later and with the huge success of the Sci-Fi/Universal TV show, we obviously would be getting something even more epic with the great music and maybe some of those great characters playing a big role. Right?
Conclusion: At 800 Microsoft points, the Xbox Live Arcade version is a bit pricey for what you get, but that's a relative bargain compared to the PC game, which is roughly double the cost at $19.99. At least the Xbox Live Arcade version gives you achievement points, though there aren't many easy ones here. For instance, one requires you to shoot down Scar without dying on medium or hard difficulty, a really daunting task.
Pros: The fighters look pretty good.
Cons: There's not a lot of depth in the gameplay, Doesn't capture the spirit of the television show, No Boomer.
