Alternate History looks at “what if” scenarios from some of history’s most pivotal turning points and presents a completely different version, sometimes based on science and fact, but often based on conjecture. The exploration of how the world would look today if various changes occurred and what these alternate worlds would be like forms the basis of this vast subject matter.
Since the 1950s, this type of fiction has to a large extent merged with science fictional tropes involving cross-time travel between alternate histories or psychic awareness of the existence of “our” universe by the people in another; or ordinary voyaging uptime (into the past) or downtime (into the future) that results in history splitting into two or more time-lines. Cross-time, time-splitting and alternate history themes have become so closely interwoven that it is impossible to discuss them fully apart from one another.

Nickelodeon and Activision Release The Legend of Korra
Though unceremoniously relegated to online-only airing, The Legend of Korra expands the Avatar universe into a video game developed by PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising), available today on a variety of platforms for fans. There’s a slight wait for the 3DS release however–but that version features a turn-based RPG style, hitting shelves on October 28. Read on for details about today’s release!
Encore with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call
With a link as inextricable as one the Final Fantasy series shares with its soundtracks, it’s no large wonder that the series ended up with a rhythm game spinoff in the form of 2012’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. After its critical and financial success, we were finally gifted to a sequel in the newly released Theathrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. And although Square-Enix could have easily gotten away with making Curtain Call nothing more than a glorified expansion pack — after all, the original Theatrhythm shipped with about 70 songs on the cartridge, while its sequel boasts over 200, sans DLC — some rather significant changes were made to ensure that it improves on some of the original game’s flaws.
