MTV News Veteran Dave Sirulnick to Depart In Wake of Viacom Restructuring

11 March 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dave Sirulnick, one of the chief backers of MTV’s news and documentary efforts over the past three decades, is leaving the network in the wake of cost-cutting efforts by its parent company, Viacom, according to a person familiar with the matter.

As executive vice president of news, documentaries and specials for MTV, Sirulnick may not be as well known as Gideon Yago, Kurt Loder, Tabitha Soren or SuChin Pak — all of whom have hosted news and themed specials on the network over the years — but he was involved in many of the programming efforts that made those on-air personalities important in the lives of MTV’s viewers.

Sirulnick has been an executive producer of MTV’s “Video Music Awards,” and ran signature programs like “Total Request Live” and “Week in Rock.” But he also made MTV a network that figured into the national conversation by linking the causes important »

Games nobody talks about anymore: 1987’s Metal Gear

20 February 2015 6:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Before the seminal PlayStation version, there was Metal Gear - Hideo Kojima’s stealth game for the MSX2 computer...

Really, it’s a miracle that the Metal Gear franchise exists at all. The original game was made for a system that few people outside Japan owned, and released by a company that had little faith in it. Yet 28 years later, Metal Gear’s huge: a multi-system, multi-media best-seller that is now one of the most important properties in Konami’s line-up. But back in the late 80s, Metal Gear’s pioneering ideas were widely frowned on in the Japanese developer’s offices.

Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima cut an awkward figure when he began working at Konami in 1986. He’d studied economics at university, and had only become interested in videogames when he picked up Super Mario Bros a few months earlier; Super Mario was, he later said, “The game of my destiny. »

From J. Lo to Whitney Houston, Why the 2000 GRAMMYs Are as Memorable as Ever

8 February 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As the music industry plans to hand out awards for the best of 2014, it’s hard not to reflect on the GRAMMYs ceremony that happened just 15 years prior. The year was 2000, but in actuality it was a reflection of 1999, when just about anything could happen. Jennifer Lopez launched her musical career, Britney Spears brought back the Catholic schoolgirl outfit, and TLC was suddenly a group again (and not just a TV channel). But the year was more than that. And the 42nd annual Grammy Awards attempted to capture that – for better or worst.

Play: Et's GRAMMYs Bingo Game

Let’s look back on all the glory of 2000 ceremony 15 years later.

1.The Dress.

Before she was J. Lo – or Jenny from the block – Lopez was just an actress-turned-singer. But you wouldn’t know it at the awards. When she walked out in the green Versace dress to present the first award of the evening with David Duchovny, the last »

The 100 Greatest Nintendo Games, Pt. 8

8 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In celebration of the 30 years since Nintendo released the Nes here in North America, we decided to round-up the Sos troops and compile a list of the 100 greatest games published and or developed by Nintendo, and released exclusively to their consoles. Here is part eight. **** - 30. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

Developer(s) Nintendo Ead Publisher(s) Nintendo Platform(s) Snes Na October 4, 1995 Genre(s) Platforming -

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island has a bit of a strange twin in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Both followed widely acclaimed and genre-defining games, and somehow both chose to do somewhat similar yet insanely different things with their respective sequels. In the case of Yoshi’s Island it was casting Yoshi as the hero, rather than Mario, and relegating the latter to a screeching infantile annoyance instead of the protagonist. Baby Mario’s recurring cry »

There are several design changes that make Super Mario Bros. 2 so different from its predecessor, starting with the pick-up and throw gameplay of this sequel. The second difference is the elimination of the timer. Since there is no timer on any of the levels, you are no longer racing to the end, and therefore you have plenty of time to fully explore each and every level. In addition, players can travel backwards in a level if needed. However the biggest change and improvement »

VOD Review – Atari: Game Over (2014)

2 February 2015 2:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Atari: Game Over, 2014

Directed by Zak Penn

Synopsis:

A crew digs up all of the old Atari 2600 game cartridges of “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” that were tossed into a landfill in the 1980s.

Since the rise of the Internet and the popularity of “Best and Worst” lists, there is one game that almost always tops the “Worst Games Ever Made” chart: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600. Why is that? Well, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial has been hailed as the “worst game ever made” because it brought down the powerhouse that was Atari, a company that during its hayday held a 90% market share over the competition. So bad was E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, that rumours of its burial in a landfill in New Mexico became the stuff of legend. Zak Penn’s Atari: Game Over is not only a look into the excavation that unearthed this landfill to expose the truth behind the rumours, »

People's Guide to the 2015 Super Bowl

31 January 2015 12:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sure, the Super Bowl is first and foremost a sporting event, the battle of the top two teams in the NFL. But it's also the one day you actually want to watch commercials. (Because seriously, who can resist that Budweiser puppy?) It's a time to fearlessly gorge yourself on greasy food and beer. And this year, it's also the perfect opportunity to star-gaze as Katy Perry performs and Hollywood's hottest celebs cheer on their favorite teams. As the New England Patriots prepare to face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Phoenix, People is bringing you inside access, from the tastiest »

Five Nights At Freddy's 3 trailer

27 January 2015 7:43 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Love it, or hate it, the Five Night's At Freddy's series is hugely popular, and it's coming back for more...

With little more than a few barely animated images, creepy sound effects, and a couple of jump scares, the Five Nights At Freddy's series has become something of a phenomenon. Made famous by endless YouTube let's plays, the puppet-stocked horror game is loved by many, with ongoing debates about the true nature of the game's back story. It's a creepy, if simple game that makes the most out of its meagre game mechanics to create a title that's actually a lot of fun.

The first game was an instant hit, again, largely because of YouTube, and a second, more ambitious game arrived, which has also gone down very well with YouTubers and fans, so much so we're in for another round, as Five Nights At Freddy's 3 is coming.

Sundance: ‘Mistress America’ Continues Winning Streak for Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig

25 January 2015 2:53 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Film strikes a rare and welcome balance between screwball comedy and touching emotion

Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig have been a match made in indie-film heaven since “Greenberg” in 2010, and the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “Mistress America” this weekend showed the two fully in sync once more.

By turns wacky, amusing and touching, the new film isn’t as focused as “Frances Ha,” the last film directed by Baumbach, starring Gerwig and co-written by both. But the Fox Searchlight project is one of the delights of this year’s festival, and one of the most satisfying, sure-handed and touching »
