New Pokemon hack makes playing as the villain possible

7 hours ago

Youtube user ‘hunterb‘ has uploaded a video that shows him playing as Maxie, the villain from the new Pokemon remakes, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.

Using a Rom hack and a player model swap, hunterb was able to use the villainous leader of Team Magma, the enemies of Pokemon Omega Ruby specifically.

It’s certainly impressive, as the video shows Maxie is able to do everything a regular player could, including visiting Pokemon Centres, battling wild Pokemon and using the move Fly to get around the map. Maxie also has his own animations separate from the regular player character, such as the way he walks and summons his Pokemon into battle.

Whether the same is possible with the villain of Alpha Sapphire, Archie, isn’t clear, but it’s highly likely. However, you should be careful when considering whether or not to hack your game – messing around with it »

Kevin Smith will shoot Clerks III, Moose Jaws and Hit Somebody in 2015

9 hours ago

Since Kevin Smith started with his True North Trilogy of Tusk, Yoga Hosers and Moose Jaws, it appeared that he’d put his two-part hockey movie / miniseries Hit Somebody on the backburner. However, the indie filmmaker has now revealed that he’s secured financing for the long-gestating project and intends on shooting that, Moose Jaws and Clerks III in 2015.

“[Kim Ledford of Star Scream] was like ‘Look, you talked about this True North Trilogy, these three movies in Canada. You gotta make those in succession. So Krampus you can make anytime, but like keep making this ’cause you’ve already kind of set the tone.’” Smith tells Slash Film. “I was like ‘All right.’ So they jumped into Yoga Hosers because of that. While working on Yoga Hosers, Clerks III came up and Kim was like ‘Let me read that script.’ And suddenly she was like ‘Oh my God, we’re making this movie. Why »

Another image from The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer

10 hours ago

We got our first official still from Guy Ritchie’s big screen take on the classic spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. earlier this week [see here], and now we have another image from the film featuring the two leads Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger)…

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe. »

Christmas Box Office: How will The Interview perform this festive season?

10 hours ago

Amongst all the controversy and speculation surrounding the release of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview it seems safe to assume a lot of eyes will be on the Sony picture during this years Christmas Box Office. Luckily for Sony, reports indicate strong ticket sales for the upcoming comedy despite losing support from major theater chains, all thanks to the help of over 300 independent theaters across the Us.

It is unlikely The Interview will come anywhere near the $35 million which The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has been predicted to achieve in its second weekend, nor will it be a threat to Disney’s Into the Woods predictions of around $27 million.  However Sony could look to bring home at least $3 million in four day gross, which considering it will be restricted to smaller and fewer (about 2500 fewer than originally planned) theaters in the Us it is a pretty decent figure. »

Drew Goddard wanted Tom Hardy for Sandman in The Sinister Six

11 hours ago

Before he signed on to play Rick Flag in Warner Bros.’ DC movie Suicide Squad, British actor Tom Hardy was linked to another supervillain ensemble in Sony’s The Sinister Six, and now a leaked email from writer-director Drew Goddard to Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal has been uncovered, during which Goddard reveals his plans for Hardy’s Flint Marko, a.k.a. Sandman. Check it out below…

I’m gonna write [Tom] up a note this weekend. But, off the top of my head, some possible talking points are:

- We’re doing something different – it’s time to celebrate the bad guys for once.

-We’re inspired by the classic team/mission of movies: Dirty Dozen, Magnificent Seven, Guns of Navarone. We want that spirit, that Swagger.

– If the Spider-Man franchise is the Beatles, then we’re the Sex Pistols.

-Flint Marco is gonna steal the show.

The most overpaid actors of 2014

13 hours ago

Forbes has posted its annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, and just like last year, former funnyman Adam Sandler finds himself in the unenviable position of first place, although he did have some competition from Johnny Depp following the disappointing box office for Dark Shadows and The Lone Ranger.

The list is worked out by taking the estimated salary of each star and compared it against the budget and box office takings of their previous three movies, up to June 2014. For Sandler – whose past three films were That’s My Boy, Jack and Jill and Grown Ups 2 – the return on investment worked out at $3.20 revenue for every $1 paid to the star. Here’s the full top ten:

1. Adam Sandler – $3.20

2. Johnny Depp – $4.10

3. Ben Stiller – $4.80

4. Ryan Reynolds – $4.90

5. Tom Hanks – $5.20

6. Will Ferrell – $6.60

7. Channing Tatum – $6.70

8. Denzel Washington – $6.90

9. Sandra Bullock – $9.00

10. Ben Affleck – $9.37

Still, a 3x return on investment isn’t that bad, »

Comic Book Review – Black Science #11

16 hours ago

Zeb Larson reviews Black Science #11…

As the Pillar counts down towards its next jump the Dimensionauts are besieged by an endless wave of horrors. Can they hold out long enough to escape, or will one of them have to remain behind and pay the ultimate price? Join Rick Remender, Matteo Scalera, & Dean White, as they bring the second chapter of the smash sci-fi hit series to a close!

Black Science’s second story arc comes to an explosive finish in this issue as multiple characters converge from different dimensions on our protagonists. This was a really solid finale issue, as the action was consistently high-stakes, and the intersection of previously disparate plot threads brings the story together like it hasn’t been in a while. I’m going to stay away from any major spoilers, so read on without fear.

Bandai Namco gets a name change, again

18 hours ago

Despite having only had the name Bandai Namco for under a year, the company is changing its name once more to Bandai Namco Entertainment.

The name change will come into effect on April 1st 2015 (which does make it somewhat suspect). A press release announcing the change said: “With the advance of technology and diversification of user preferences, the Group has expanded into new products and service domains that extend beyond its previous game business domain.

“This change in our name allows us to redefine the scope of our business as lying not solely just within games, but rather more broadly within entertainment as a whole.

“In doing so, we seek the continued growth of our company through a new, yet wholly recognizable network that will be utilized for expansion into service and contents ventures.”

The company only changed their name from Namco Bandai to Bandai Namco in February of this year. »
