WTF: An ‘Alien vs Predator’ Football Video Game Was Once in Development for SEGA Genesis

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was ...

Woodland Hills teen sentenced to probation, community service following deadly Tarzana crash

In a Sylmar courtroom Monday, Pedram Shayesteh stood before a judge as well as a daughter still grieving from a terrible night two years ago.

Details for temporary homeless shelter in Wilmington set to roll out next week

After months of debate, plans for a temporary homeless shelter in Wilmington are set to be unveiled next week. But after an enthusiastic July 2018 launch of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s A Bridge Home program and with new funding in place, the city’s ambitious efforts to move the homeless off of local sidewalks has hit some snags, including rising costs and a slower pace for building permanent housing and community opposition delaying some of the proposed temporary shelter sites.

A shift in giving means local nonprofits must adapt

Are Americans – and Angelenos – becoming less generous? If so, what does that mean to the charities and nonprofits striving to address homelessness, addiction, mental illness and many other issues in our community?

Southern California thieves are targeting cars for parts like seats and catalytic converters — but there are ways to deter them

One or more thieves crawled under Andrew Olewicz’s Prius as he was fast asleep on the evening of Sept. 26. It was parked on the street in front of his house in Costa Mesa, so he didn’t hear a thing as someone used a saw to cut out his car’s catalytic converter. However, the god-awful noise made by the typically silent-running vehicle the next morning didn’t go unnoticed as he began an hour-long commute to San Diego. The same goes for the $500 insurance deductible he paid to get the car fixed, as...
