Oblivion A rare thing has happened! I have found a Tom Cruise performance that I like. It’s not often I say that and certainly never thought I’d put it in writing on the internet but there you go lol. The only other time I liked his performance in a movie was Interview with the vampire (1994). Sure the first Mission Impossible was good, as was ghost Protocol but Tom Cruise never seemed to be acting any differently than any other character he has played. The plot is that Earth has been devastated by a war with an Alien species called “Scavs”. Who destroyed the moon assisting during the war. Humanity eventually won however, the Earth was no longer able to sustain them, so the survivors escaped to a space station named “Tet” before going out further into the Solar System and settling on Titan, Saturn’s moon. Tom Cruise plays “Jack Harper” A maintenance man who along with partner Andrea Riseborough “Victoria “Vika” Olsen”.

The couple, receive orders from Melissa Leo “Sally” the mission commander who is up on the Tet space station After the…

The plot of Elysium is set in 2154. There are two classes of people, the rich who live in a utopian space station orbiting Earth called Elysium, and the poor who live on a polluted, overcrowded slum of a planet that only exists to manufacture the things that people in Elysium need.

And when you find them the battles can be fast and furious dogfights between 2 players in strike craft, or long range missile barrages between gigantic battle ships supported by strike craft that can last for over an hour. You don’t need a high powered gaming PC to play Battlestar Galactica Online either, I started playing a few years ago with a low end laptop. For a browser game the graphics are great, the lighting effects too will have you wondering how they can make such a good looking game in just your browser window. Also the game uses the same sound effects as the series, helping to immerse you even more into the Battlestar Galactica world. Upon starting, you will need to choose a server. This will initially be chosen for you based upon your location, but you can also manually choose the server yourself. Next you will then need to choose from one…
