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. Originally, it was supposed to be a direct DVD release, but a few months ago the production blog claimed the project was […]

PSP’s Go!View Service That Most People Can’t Go View!

By Celeste . November 25, 2008 . 10:23am

The PSP is an exciting platform; being a handheld system that caters to the tastes of the hardcore gamer, it was always a novel creation. But now, with the launch of Go!View expanding the Go! Services for the PSP, SCEE is leaving UK owners of their handheld system little to want for.   For those […]

Astro Boy Flick Getting A Video Game Tie-In

By Spencer . November 5, 2008 . 8:18am

About one year from now Imagi Studios will bring Astro Boy to movie theaters everywhere. A film this iconic and child friendly is destined to have a video game tie-in, but who’s going to handle it? D3 Publisher, that’s who.   In some circles D3 is synonymous with wacky budget games and maybe even shojo, […]

The DS Is "Where The Wild Things Are"

By Spencer . September 29, 2008 . 9:10pm

Not too long ago there was a rumor that Brash Entertainment got the license to publish a video game based on the timeless children’s picture book Where the Wild Things Are. This rumor is one giant leap closer to confirmation with Where the Wild Things Are rated as a Nintendo DS game by the OFLC. […]

Someone wants Lego Reservoir Dogs, Traveller’s Tales is interested in Lego City

By Spencer . July 17, 2008 . 8:35am

I saw Lego Batman yesterday which didn’t pull any surprises. Using the Wii remote to point and aim the batarang was neat, but Lego Batman is really an extension of the existing Lego games with the Batman license. Like Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Batman won’t have any online play. Richard Earl explained the reason for […]

By Spencer . June 23, 2008 . 11:50am

The NYAFF premiere of Game Center CX, soon to be known as Retro Game Center, isn’t a one shot deal. I got in touch with a Retro Game Master representative that clarified the screenings are the start of the KACHO in North America.   “They have produced the English subb'd DVDS and are now looking […]

Two English subtitled episodes of Game Center CX will be at the New York Asian Film Festival starting this Saturday. One video has Shinya Arino playing the frustrating Famicom game, Atlantis No Nazo (Mystery of Atlantis). The other challenge is Katcho vs. Ghost and Goblins. If you are around the New York Metro area the […]

Bourne-like acrobatics in The Bourne Conspiracy game

By Louise . June 10, 2008 . 1:45pm

A Bourne game so violent that Matt Damon refused to lend his voice to it? Sure, sign me up!  That and the fact that you get to drive a Mini are the only things that I knew about The Bourne Conspiracy before diving into it.   The main draw for me in playing a Bourne […]

Iron Man demo blasts onto Xbox Live tomorrow

By Spencer . April 17, 2008 . 3:02pm

There is a general amount of skepticism when it comes to video games based on movies. A few legends like GoldenEye that buck the trend, but more awful renditions enter my mind. And then there was Street Fighter II: The Movie: The Game.   At least we won’t have to waste money with Iron Man. […]

Titanic RPG sinks into obscurity

By Spencer . March 21, 2008 . 10:29pm

The Final Fantasy VII Famicom bootleg got a notable amount of attention and rightfully so since it Cloud is in it. Even though Titanic raked in over a billion at the box office only Insert Credit is linking to a post about a bootleg game based on the sappy love story. I have to thank […]

Spiderwick Chronicles a date for 2 players?

By Dan . February 20, 2008 . 8:57am

Not normally one to play movie-to-game adaptations, this one was something out of the ordinary for me. But whatever, I'm always in the mood for something different.   My original plan for playing The Spiderwick Chronicles was to rope my girlfriend into playing the game with me. See she's a teacher and a big fan […]

Outer space primates recruited for a console game?

By Spencer . February 7, 2008 . 12:44pm

This summer Space Chimps, a movie about two NASA monkeys sent into space, will be projected in movie theaters throughout North America. It looks like the animated flick will also be the base for a video game from movie-game specialists, Brash Entertainment. If Gamefly is correct Space Chimps will at least come out for the […]

Behind the curtain, Making of “The Wizard”

By Spencer . January 14, 2008 . 6:08pm

Remember the theatrical advertisement for Super Mario Brothers 3, the Wizard? Geoffrey sent a link with an interview with the director, Todd Holland (thanks!). Holland’s responses are an interesting peek into the dull plot, which could have been much worse. The paper thin traveling through California plotline was Holland’s recommendation. Holland also explains the success […]

AvP: Is the Fight Worth Playing?

By Andrew . December 18, 2007 . 10:52am

When I received my copy of Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem for the PSP to play, I was really conflicted.  I’m a big Predator fan and an even bigger Alien fan, but the AvP crossover has varied in quality so much ever since it’s inception.  I enjoyed the classic games in the franchise like Capcom’s amazing […]
