Bullet-Hell Shooter Score Rush Extended Blasts Onto PlayStation 4 Next Week

47 minutes ago

Indie publisher Reverb Triple Xp announced today that they will be bringing Xona Games’ Score Rush Extended to the PlayStation 4 on May 31. The bullet-hell shooter is an upgraded version of the original Score Rush, which saw significant success on the Xbox Live Marketplace in Japan.

A throwback to the classics of the genre, Score Rush Extended is a no frills take on the shoot ’em up. Gone are the unnecessary storylines, customizable ships and massive hubs of modern day bullet-hell shooters. Xona Games is focused squarely on letting players destroy wave upon wave of enemies using a multitude of weapons. If the launch trailer is anything to go by, the action will be fast and relentless.

While it may not feature some of the trappings of its contemporaries, the shooter does boast one unique mode. The game supports four-player local co-op, so you and three friends can team up in »

Get Shorty Will Be Receiving The Television Treatment

52 minutes ago

Following in the footsteps of seemingly almost every single 80s/90s film out there, Get Shorty is now the latest movie set to receive the television treatment. Yup, that’s right, Epix and MGM are teaming up to produce a show based on Barry Sonnenfeld’s 1995 film.

THR is the one with the report, telling us that Davey Holmes will serve as creator and executive producer, with the general plot set to make a few tweaks to Elmore Leonard’s original story:

The dark comedy centers on Miles Daly, who works as muscle for a murderous crime ring in Nevada. For the sake of his daughter, he attempts to change professions and become a movie producer, laundering money through a Hollywood film. But instead of leaving the criminal world behind, he accidentally brings it with him to Los Angeles.

So, while there are several changes (most noticeably the name and »

Wesley Snipes Says Blade 4 Is A “Possibility”

1 hour ago

It’s been well over a decade since Wesley Snipes was last on screen as Blade, but the actor seems keen to reprise the role in some shape or form. Though the franchise already has 3 films under its belt, recent rumors have pointed to Marvel taking the vampire hunter to television next. However, it would be foolish to rule out a return to the big screen just yet, as Snipes recently took to Twitter to tell us that a fourth Blade movie is still a “possibility.”

When it comes to another Blade, there’s always a possibility. #SharpeningMyTeeth

Wesley Snipes (@wesleysnipes) May 24, 2016

We know that Marvel is open to having the character make a return in some way, but at this point, we just don’t have any confirmation on whether it will be through film or television. Nor do we know when we can expect to see him or »

The Americans To Cap Off Run With Two Final Seasons At FX

2 hours ago

FX is preparing to bid adieu to The Americans, after the network today ordered a final, two-season renewal of the Cold War drama, meaning Philip and Elizabeth Jennings’ captivating journey will reach its climax with season 6.

That’s a two-part finale that will see a 13-episode fifth season make its bow in 2017, followed by the conclusive sixth and final season in 2018, which will be comprised of 10 episodes in total.

First making its premiere in 2013, The Americans continues to be one of the most acclaimed dramas on the small-screen – not lest because of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ excellent performances as the Jennings – and season 4 continued that piping hot streak in style earlier this year.

Now with an end date in sight, FX released the following statement:

“Through its first four seasons, critics have lauded The Americans as one of the best shows on television and, remarkably, a series that keeps getting better every year, »

Following in the tire tracks of Universal’s barnstorming Fast and Furious franchise – and, specifically, F. Gary Gray’s Fast 8Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight has entered production in Cuba, becoming only the second North America movie to do so in light of improved political relations between the island nation and the Us of A.

Arrow And Wolverine Actress Rila Fukushima Boards Ghost In The Shell

3 hours ago

The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Rila Fukushima has closed a deal to join Paramount’s live-action rendition of Ghost in the Shell.

Best known for her involvement across both Wolverine and Arrow, the outlet didn’t disclose which character Fukushima would be playing in the 2017 feature, but news of a Japanese actress being drafted in for the high-profile adaptation is certainly promising, even if skeptics still lambaste Ghost in the Shell for whitewashing its preliminary cast.

Whatever your stance, in light of today’s casting, that ensemble now includes Scarlett Johansson in the role of the Major, a deadly human-cyborg who spearheads an elite task force known as Section 9. Meanwhile, there’s also parts for Michael Pitt as key villain The Laughing Man, Beat Takeshi Kitano as Daisuke Aramaki and Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouelet. Game of ThronesPilou Asbaek also stars along with Chin Han, Danusia Samal, »

3 hours ago

Now that Trekkies have indulged in the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, there’s another sci-fi event looming on the horizon that’s set to herald plenty of exciting tidbits relating to a certain galaxy far, far away.

We are, of course, referring to Star Wars Celebration Europe, the annual fan-centric event that will descend on London come July 15. To drum up excitement for the convention, Disney and Lucasfilm have not only premiered the inaugural episode of The Star Wars Show (see below), but there’s also a stunning new poster that merges key players from both The Force Awakens and this year’s militaristic prequel, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

More News From The Web

Indeed, it’s a safe bet that Disney will capitalize on the hype come July, perhaps premiering a new clip or trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Anthology film. There’s also been »

Madeon Reveals A New Album Is On The Way

3 hours ago

It’s been over a year since French producer Madeon dropped his first studio album Adventure to widespread acclaim, but in the time that has passed since his debut release we’ve heard little new material come to fruition. Following the release of Adventure, Madeon kicked off a live show while only a trickle of new music hit the airwaves.

Finally, the young producer took to Twitter this week to break the silence and assure his fans that new material is indeed on the way, confirming that his next album will be released “next year for sure.”

@JimmyHPerez Next year for sure

— Madeon (@madeon) May 25, 2016

The news will no doubt have fans excited at the prospect of new music to obsess over, and Madeon can probably expect to be one of the most watched over producers of 2017. Without any other information regarding the tentative LP though, we we’ll just »

Nic Pizzolatto Working On New Series At HBO, Casts Doubt Over True Detective Season 3

4 hours ago

Ever since the marked dip in quality from seasons one to two – one attributed to a rushed script – the immediate future of True Detective has been uncertain at best. Not only has HBO continually ducked out of a decision to renew the anthology show for a third run on the air, but series creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto has also been coy about the possibility of returning to the procedural largely due to the massive workload it entails.

While fans have been holding out hope for the network to announce a new cast, setting and storyline for season 3 – in many ways to right the wrongs of the show’s sophomore run – a new tidbit emerging today via The Hollywood Reporter only casts more doubt over the show’s future.

Rather than pushing ahead with True Detective season 3, head of programming Casey Bloys revealed to THR that Nic Pizzolatto – who recently »

There Could Be A PC Future On The Horizon For Halo Games

4 hours ago

In a report about the future of Microsoft’s Xbox consoles, Kotaku brought news that suggested franchises like Halo could be seeing a bright future for PC players as well. The feature speaks of Microsoft’s plans to eventually converge the Xbox One and PC, and points to some large gaming franchises being able to benefit from the fluidity.

Kotaku’s coverage speaks about some of the first-party games already set for the PC in years to come, and had comments from developers to add fuel to the speculation about greater PC coverage as Microsoft’s plans progress:

For a while now Microsoft has been clear that they want their two prestige brands to work together, as they’ve announced big new exclusives like Halo Wars 2 and Sea of Thieves for both Xbox One and PC. Developer sources have told us that Microsoft’s new mandate is to release future »

Dillon Francis And Getter Join Forces In DJ World: Episode One

4 hours ago

Dance music’s most comedically inclined producers Dillon Francis and Getter have teamed up to bring Edm into the realm of reality TV with DJ World. Along with Vine celeb Nick Colletti (of ‘Suh Dude’ fame), the two producers star in what will become a seven episode straight to web series that takes a satirical aim at all the worst DJ stereotypes.

The premise of DJ World is simple. Getter, Francis and Colletti have each taken on the roles of two DJs, making a mockery of the fist-pumping, button pushing trends that helped catapult their own careers. Episode one serves as an introduction to the six characters on the show, who are competing for the chance of a lifetime to win $5,000 and a one way trip to America’s dance music capital of Las Vegas.

New episodes of DJ World will be released twice a week up through the middle of June, »

Mirror’s Edge TV Series Darts To Endemol Shine Studios

4 hours ago

Serialized content based on dormant movie franchises is a trend that may be running amok, but what of TV shows inspired by video games? Well, according to Deadline, Endemol Shine Studios has nabbed the rights for a live-action series based on Mirror’s Edge, the futuristic sci-fi franchise developed by Dice.

Blending themes of totalitarianism with bleeding-edge graphics, the company is hoping to spin out a female-driven action series based on the blistering video game, which follows an underground group of Runners who carve out a life in the City of Glass as couriers, evading oppressive security and governmental forces as they leap, dive and wall-run across the sterile landscape.

At the heart of the tale is Faith, a skilled Runner whose sister is framed for a murder she didn’t commit, spawning a plot involving sibling bonds and government conspiracies.

In response to the announcement, Sharon Hall, President of Endemol Shine Studios, »

Quintino Lights It Up On New Major Lazer Remix

4 hours ago

Dutch dance music mastermind Quintino just dropped a new Major Lazer remix this week, offering up his own take on “Light It Up” off of last year’s Peace Is The Mission LP. The producer holds nothing back on his rendition of the track, mutating the dancehall influenced original into a big room banger fit for the festival crowds.

For his remix, Quintino picks up the tempo to bring “Light It Up” into high energy house territory, crafting a markedly different vibe compared to the original version. Massive kicks and warped trumpet samples carve out a pummeling rhythm throughout the drops, while Nyla’s vocals are recycled sporadically throughout the production for familiarity.

While the big room style has lost a lot of its excitement as the sound became more generic and overused, Quintino earns props with his take on “Light It Up” for delivering an original version that bears »

Telltale Publishing have announced that they will be bringing the popular survival game 7 Days to Die to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next month. The hit PC game currently has over 1.5 million players, and the developers at Iron Galaxy and The Fun Pimps have recently talked about enjoying the challenge of adapting that formula for a console audience.

Dice’s Shimmering City Of Glass Beckons In Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Launch Trailer

4 hours ago

Eight years on from the release of Faith’s maiden adventure, Dice is finally rounding the final corner in anticipation of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and to commemorate the occasion, the sequel’s launch trailer has landed online ahead of release.

Heralding the grand opening of the studio’s shimmering City of Glass, Catalyst‘s eye-popping sizzle reel champions the slick, first-person gameplay that fired Mirror’s Edge to fame in the first place, only this time harnessing the power of current-gen consoles.

In outlining the story that awaits Faith across the sterile, dystopian cityscape, both Dice and EA dropped the following synopsis in tandem with today’s trailer.

Times are about to change in the city of Glass. Barely out of juvenile detention, skilled Runner Faith Connors stirs things up with the city’s Conglomerate and the evil Gabriel Kruger. Faith is forced to start running for something far more important than herself. »

Battle Details For Pokémon Go Emerge As Us Beta Tests Begin

With field tests for Pokémon Go now underway in the U.S, Niantic and The Pokémon Company have revealed more about the mechanics of their upcoming mobile game. New information about the way battling will feature in the experience has been unveild, with both companies acknowledging just how important this element is to any Pokémon game.

These and other items can be found at PokéStops, which will appear at landmarks and places of interest in the world.

Along with these PokéStops, Gyms will also appear around the world. This will be where the battling comes in. »

Bryan Cranston Returns To A Life Of Crime In New Trailer For The Infiltrator

5 hours ago

It’s a far cry from the multi-faceted and quite frankly unnerving role of Heisenberg, but come July, Bryan Cranston will be returning to the world of crime for Brad Furman’s narcotics thriller, The Infiltrator.

As the title suggests, Cranston will assume the role of Robert “Bob” Mazur, a decorated agent who agrees to go undercover in a bid to topple Pablo Escobar’s infamous drug trafficking empire circa 1986, nailing the “biggest bust in Us history” in the process.

It’s a mission that has our grizzled protagonist lead a double life as a slick, money-laundering businessman, who teams with John Leguizamo’s street wise agent as they risk life and limb to get a foothold in Escobar’s criminal underworld.

Based loosely on the true story, the rat-a-tat pace of today’s new trailer coupled with the cracking chemistry between Cranston and Leguizamo has us quietly confident that »

SpellForce 3 Brings The Series Back As A Blend Of Rts And RPG

5 hours ago

The SpellForce series is returning this year as Nordic Games return to their roots to bring SpellForce 3, a blend of Rts and RPG gameplay, to the market. The action takes place prior to the events of SpellForce: The Order of Dawn, and this ‘prequel’ will immerse players in the lush fantasy world of Eo.

Now, ahead of a feature at E3 next month, the developers have spilled the beans on some of the gameplay and mechanics that we can expect to enjoy in SpellForce 3. As with previous games in the series, players will create hero from scratch and be able to customise and develop this individual’s skills through campaign quests. These can then be teamed with other characters to form trios of heroes to explore the game world with.

The map of this world will be split into three sectors, and the player’s base within this will grow organically. »
