Rumor Mill: Legend Of Zelda May Be Getting A Live Action Show
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 9th of February 2015 - 06:00 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...

You've Got To Be Kidding Me. New Mortal Kombat Film In The Works
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 3rd of October 2011 - 03:48 PM ]
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 - 10:28 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 - 08:55 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 - 09:59 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 - 09:02 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 - 03:48 PM ]
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 - 04:36 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...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 2 - Kano's Eye
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 20th of April 2011 - 06:33 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 - 06:36 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...

Let's Get Teased! Mortal Kombat: Legacy
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 8th of April 2011 - 10:43 PM ]
The time is almost here. The time for that awesome live action Mortal Kombat web show to hit the net. Obviously that also means that it is time to tease it a little bit before. Here is said tease. Ok, so nothing as awesome as the first short, but I am sure it will fit in well somehow. I mean with the huge splash that the first video made it would be ludicrous to try to slop out some crap afterwards. At least it is a look at Kano and Jax, although we got a basic look already of Jax. Read More...

Mortal Kombat Rebirth Officially Announced Now
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of January 2011 - 11:33 PM ]
Remember that viral video for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth that we brought you back in June of 2010? Sure you do. I am also sure that you have already heard the rumors and speculation that it was actually going to become a ten part web series with some of the cast coming back. If not, do some Google searches and I am sure you will find what I am talking about. That or just keep reading here as it has now been officially announced from Warner Premiere that the project is actually a go. With the response the "viral" video got it is really no surprise that something is moving forward with it. Read More...

Mortal Kombat Making A Come Back?

The below tweets from her state that this is a pilot of sorts to help reboot the Mortal Kombat film franchise. JeriLRyan: Okay, so... Mortal Kombat. JeriLRyan: It's not a game trailer. Read More...

Silent Hill 2... Er I Mean Alan Wake Live Action
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 26th of April 2010 - 02:53 AM ]
What you are about to see is not a preview to some new horror film. Nor is it the preview for the film adaptation of Silent Hill 2. So please do not get confused when you watch it. What is it a preview for then? The below video/preview is for the prequel story to Silent Hill Alan Wake. A game that has cause a bit of stir between the media and its developers. Why it hasn't caused any strife between Konami and Remedy yet, I don't know. What I do know is that on Tuesday (4/27), if you are not an XBox Live member, you will be able to check out the first episode over at http://brightfalls. Read More...

Total Link PWNage
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 1st of April 2008 - 09:40 PM ]
Legend Of Zelda Movie Trailer Premiere Ok, so I could have the largest dick in the universe and report this as 100% real, but I am not. In fact, I've been trolling around to find real stuff to report on, but alas, today is the day that everyone goes above and beyond to pull a prank. For F*cks sake, some of these "Joke" ideas are good enough to be made real; like the Bard class for WoW. But no, everyone has got to have their turn at teasing the world only to kick them in the virtual nuts by saying ha-f*cking-ha. I mean, I like a joke more than the next guy, but when you go to extreme lengths like what you will see below, it is no longer a good joke but just harmful. Read More...
