Webgame Wednesday. Snowden's Leaks: The Game

Last time we checked NSA leaker Edward Snowden was still hunkered down in Russia doing the political asylum thing. No matter what your political bent on this particular story, I'm sure we can all agree it would be more digestible in video game form. Snowden's Leaks: The Game may not teach us all that much about our government's use of secret internet searches, but it does offer some nifty, Elevator Action-style arcade fun. Download the secrets, avoid the CIA men, toss stuff out windows: Now that's some good whistleblowing.

“XIII” on Reelz

XIII came to life as a graphic novel series by the Belgian writing/drawing duo of Jean Van Hamme and William Vance. The property is known to a handful of Americans because it was adapted into a first-person shooter video game in 2003. Few who played that cult-fave had any idea of the story’s illustrated origins, however. In 2008, a French-Canadian miniseries (XIII: The Conspiracy starring Stephen Dorff and Val Kilmer) adapted Van Hamme and Vance’s original storyline. That proved successful enough—in Europe, anyway—to inspire a spin-off series in 2011.
