  • Excerpt: "Alienated" is a standout track from Keri Hilson's debut album that takes the trite breakup song formula and re-energizes it with intergalactic allusions. With some slick production and fun lyrics, "Alienated" takes what could have easily been a filler track and makes it single worthy.

  • Excerpt: Space: The Final Sellout. It’s the first – and usually last – place to go when you’re looking to expand a franchise, at least if you’re a 1970’s Saturday morning cartoon show.

  • Cons: Far too many battles are decided by luck, No multiplayer matchmaking or leaderboards, Protagonist is almost impossible to care about, Story takes too long to get even remotely interesting
