So who is excited about science fiction returning to the Syfy channel? When the network picked up Canadian hit Continuum, I have to admit that I was excited. I have not yet seen the show, but the premise alone already has me hooked.
Science fiction games seem to be uber-hot right now, thanks to the success of games like Bioware’s Mass Effect series. But cyberpunk as a genre in games is also starting to be a new trend for 2013.
