Rumor Mill: Legend Of Zelda May Be Getting A Live Action Show
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 9th of February 2015 - 01:00 PM ]
New rumors out there is a Legend Of Zelda live action show is being developed by Netflix from the Wall Street Journal It's only been seven years since we had that IGN April Fool's joke about there being a live action Legend Of Zelda film in the works so it is about time we get that all spinning up again right? Of course it is. Only this time it isn't April Fool's Day and this doesn't look like some elaborate hoax to generate web traffic to the IGN website. Read More...

Review: The Harvest
by Kenton Winkfield [ Thursday, 19th of December 2013 - 01:27 PM ]
Review Of The Harvest By South African Indie Developers Luma Arcade Are you busy and looking for a game to play that doesn't require all your attention? Is solitaire not intensive enough to fill that free time? Do you not have a mouse readily available to play most games and are left with only one free hand and a trackpad? Well that sucks, but maybe you'll want to look into The Harvest. The Harvest is a top-down action RPG set in the future from South African Developers, Luma Arcade. Read More...

Looks Like We Are Officially Getting A New Uncharted On The PlayStation 4
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 15th of November 2013 - 01:49 PM ]
A New Uncharted Title Has Been Announced For The PlayStation 4, But That Is Really All That Has Been Said Today is the day that PlayStation 4 officially hits the streets of North America but that isn't the only news that Sony wants people focused on. It shouldn't be a huge surprise but a new Uncharted title has been announced for the PlayStation 4. Something that was kind of a given as it was teased that there was going to be another huge title announced just before the console's launch. I figured it was going to be either another God Of War title or Uncharted as they are the most logical to show off some of the power of the PS4. Read More...

PAX East Impressions: Guacamelee!
by Fred Buell [ Tuesday, 26th of March 2013 - 07:28 PM ]
This weekend I got to sit down with Graham Smith the co-founder of Drinkbox Studios. He showed me Drinkbox's new game Guacamelee! and I must say it's a nice blend of classic Metroidvania style action and Megaman style platforming. Guacamelee! has a 'dual world' feature where you have to jump through portals to navigate the levels. These two worlds are called The World of the Living and The World of the Dead. You will come across enemies that are shrouded in shadow that cannot be attacked, as they are in the other world, but simply jumping in a portal will allow you to defeat said enemy. Read More...

Indie Game Of The Month: A Valley Without Wind
by Fred Buell [ Thursday, 28th of June 2012 - 02:33 PM ]
For all those lovers of classic action games or side scrolling RPGs; look no further than A Valley Without Wind. When I spoke with the developers from Arcen Games at PAX East last April, they had said they loved the old 2D actioners like Super Metroid, Castlevania and so on. They said the one thing they hate about those games is 'they end.' A Valley Without Wind plays just like the aforementioned games with a hint of MMO and one huge difference. It doesn’t end and the maps a randomly generated. Read More...

You've Got To Be Kidding Me. New Mortal Kombat Film In The Works
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 3rd of October 2011 - 11:48 AM ]
Please gods don't let there be another video game film craze coming again. Earlier this week we found out Dead Island has been optioned for a featured film. Now, Mortal Kombat is getting the same treatment. Yes, another Mortal Kombat film is in the works. Although it has potential to be really good but only if things work out as alluded to. Apparently things went way better for the Web Series that was directed by Kevin Tancharoen than Warner Bros. expected. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 8 - Same Old Story
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 1st of June 2011 - 06:28 PM ]
What a twist! Who knew that Quan Chi was the master mind behind the whole Sub Zero/Scorpion plot? My mind is blown! Completely didn't expect this "reimagining" to go there. Madness! Wait… What…? That is the basic canon of the Mortal Kombat universe? It wasn't something amazingly awesome thought up by the people who wrote something amazing to get the WB behind this little web series? Damn… I was really hoping for something here. Now that my sarcasm has been given the chance to be out in the open for the day, let's move on. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 7 - Scorpion The Family Man
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 25th of May 2011 - 04:55 PM ]
That didn't last long. The awesome reimagining of the Mortal Kombat franchise that was shown in episode 6 seems to be thrown to the side as we are back on the path of the stories we already know. Oh, and just like the Kitana/Mileena story, this one is set up the same way only with franchise favorites Scorpion and Sub Zero. That includes the "To Be Continued" at the end of the episode. I will give the episode a bit of credit as it does expand on the whole rivalry story between the two characters. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 6 - Raiden's Gone Crazy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 19th of May 2011 - 05:59 PM ]
Finally we get something that was originally pitched way back when. It only took six episodes before we got another gritty take on the Mortal Kombat universe. While it was nothing as insane as how Baraka or Scorpion were presented, it does ask the question of "What would happen if a god fell in the modern age?" It also answers it pretty accurately too boot. This week's episode features Raiden who seems to have fallen out of power and into the grounds of a mental institution. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 5 - Sibling Rivalry...Kind Of
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 11th of May 2011 - 05:02 PM ]
The latest episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy has hit the web and it continues down the path of just retelling the story from the game. I have given up hope that they would begin to go back to the "reality based" version. So I am going to try and approach this from a different angle as my original excitement was for something that seems will never be. Anyway, this episode continues the animatic and story of Kitana and Mileena that was approached in last week's episode. It has the girls vying for their "father's" approval by fighting each other and following out assassination plots. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 4 - Let's Go To Outworld
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 9th of May 2011 - 11:48 AM ]
Um…I really don't know what to say this time. Other than it looks like the previously mentioned boat has now brought that jumper to the ramp before the shark. This new episode has completely deviated from the original pitch from last year. It reeks of either studio demands or that the production team stopped caring about bring what was originally hyped. I knew Baraka was going to be grossly different than the "real world" rendition, but they went all fantasy on it. Outside of fully deviating from the original gritty real world feel, most of this week's episode is also done in an animatic format. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 3 - You Got Caged!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 28th of April 2011 - 12:36 PM ]
Now here is a gross deviation from everything that was going on with Mortal Kombat: Legacy. First Johnny Cage isn't killed outright and he is actually failing as the actor he claims to be. A show called "You Got Caged." Really? All I could think about was the first line of from one of my favorite web shows. It's silly yet fun. I would love to know why the dirty, realistic gritty version of MK:L seems to have been abandoned though. Read More...

Rainbow Farting Unicorn, Yea That Was Said...
by Matt Waitt [ Monday, 25th of April 2011 - 03:04 PM ]
A new video has been posted on YouTube celebrity Freddie Wong's page, featuring a very gaseous little unicorn. Although at first it seems to be a normal humorous YouTube video, the credits point us in another direction. The video starts off with Freddie surfing the internet and getting a pop-up add claiming he has won something. Being slightly more curious than normal, he clicks on the ad and suddenly there are screeches in and out of existence dropping off what sounds like a heavy package. Freddie goes outside to see what it is. Read More...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 2 - Kano's Eye
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 20th of April 2011 - 02:33 PM ]
Ah foreshadowing is a fun mistress. Remember in the first episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy when they showed the laser eye? The normal eyed Kano held it up and asked about it. Of course you do. Well let's just say that it made its way into this episode in a nice gory way. Other things to look forward to in the below continuation of the web series: Explosions. A way cooler fight between Jax and Kano. Back alley surgery…with robots. Read More...

Here Is The First Episode Of Mortal Kombat: Legacy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 12th of April 2011 - 02:36 PM ]
The wait is finally over. The first episode of the Mortal Kombat web series is finally out for all of us fans and webiphiles to enjoy. The video is below, so I'll put the rest of my words after that. I know you're just going to jump down and press play anyways. That small clip from before makes so much more sense. The creep factor from the very first "viral video" is a bit lost here, but then again this is just the lead up. I am sure that as it continues it will get darker and creepier, but not so much right now. Read More...
