Out There is something special.
Out There is a game about resource management. You start with a ship equipped with a handful of tools, plus a small stockpile of fuel, oxygen, and hull metal. As you hop from system to system, you can probe and drill planets to collect more resources.
If you’ve seen Gravity, Alien, Apollo 13, or any other movie set in space, then you know that a lot can go wrong. In that airless, uninhabitable environment, humans rely on tools to keep them alive. In Out There, you play as an astronaut who’s alone on a ship, far from home, and wants to get back safely. To put it bluntly, a lot goes wrong. (more…)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review
It’s a testament to the rapid rise of mobile gaming that last decade’s console blockbusters can now run entirely on your smartphone or tablet computer. In 2004, there was no bigger game than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, an open-world crime saga that propelled a young gangster around a satirical replica of California. While the mobile platform has its unique limitations, San Andreas is still a masterpiece of modern gaming.
GTA: SA tells the story of Carl “CJ” Johnson, a member of the Grove Street gang who returns to San Andreas after the murder of his mother. He quickly falls into the local gang wars, pulling drive-bys on rival gangs and reclaiming turf for Grove Street. You can customize CJ’s look by shopping for clothes, then either make him fat by frequenting fast food restaurants, or lean and mean by working out at the gym.
Whether you’re playing it again out of nostalgia, or if this is your first visit, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a massively enjoyable crime spree in a compact package. Maybe less than a decade from now, we’ll be playing Grand Theft Auto V as a visual overlay on our wearable computers, committing realistic-looking virtual crimes while we shop at the grocery store.
