Capcom who is partially financing the Lost Planet film adaptation isn’t skimping on the budget. Toshihiro Tokumaru, Head of Capcom’s Character Contents Business, explains the “project will cost somewhere between 150 million and 200 million dollars to make.” Just for comparisons sake the planned budget is bigger than Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and falls […]

Could An Ultraviolent Animated Castlevania Film Come To Theaters?

By Spencer . December 22, 2008 . 1:39pm

Hearing the news about the Castlevania movie being in a standstill sparked my memory about another Castlevania movie. The film I’m thinking of is based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse and it’s animated.

Introducing 24: The Pachislot: The Game

By Spencer . August 1, 2008 . 12:29am

24 is quite popular in Japan. I remember going to Sega’s Joypolis amusement center in Tokyo where there was a 24 video scavenger hunt. Players would take a card and swipe it to see videos and solve a mission. I gave up after the first video to play more House of the Dead 4 Extreme. […]

The Forbidden Kingdom co-starring the Dreamcast

By Spencer . April 28, 2008 . 9:15am

With the unlikely mash up of Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Collin Chou it’s easy to overlook numerous video game references in the movie. Well, when one of the kids holds up an Xbox 360 and says “look, I found your new Xbox” or something to that magnitude and Jason, the young boy who needs […]

Nicole Kidman shills for Nintendo

By Dan . June 25, 2007 . 8:43am

It seems strange, but Nintendo has gotten some big stars to hawk Ninty wares in Japan so maybe it's not so weird after all. Either way, Nintendo Europe will be using the lovely Ms. Kidman to promote the Brain Training series. Apparently she'll be participating in a 60 day campaign to keep her brain in […]

Hugh Hefner’s private gaming lounge

By Spencer . June 14, 2007 . 9:50pm

After everyone shuttled out of the Championship Gaming Series tent there were tours of the Playboy mansion. We saw a steaming hot (empty) grotto, walked through an aviary and whisked into a mini arcade. Hef’s private gaming stash has a pool table in the center of a room surrounded by mostly retro games like Donkey […]

Heading to the Playboy mansion for a video game party (no seriously)

By Spencer . June 12, 2007 . 1:35pm

So this has got to be a first (maybe last?)… a video game party at Hef’s house. The Championship Gaming Series is holding a draft pick event there to give the upcoming video game league a little glamor and glitz. Teams are going to be in different regions like New York, Los Angeles and so […]
