Will You Turn Out to See 'Hitman: Agent 47'c

23 June 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fox has released a new Hitman: Agent 47 trailer, the movie based on the Io Interactive video game first released in 2000 and the most recent sequel version of which was released in 2012, unless you count the mobile version, "Hitman: Sniper", which was released just this month on iOS and Android. But how many really carec Especially when the latest movie version, directed by Aleksander Bach and starring Rupert Friend in the title role, really doesn't look much better than the 2007 installment, which was unable to crack $100 million worldwide upon release. Not many video game adaptations are able to succeed, most often because they are poor adaptations. The Resident Evil franchise did well by keeping the budget down and scoring big internationally and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider did well thanks in large part to Angelina Jolie. Otherwise you have the $122 million worldwide success of Mortal Kombat back in 1995 and Dreamworks is »

"Doom" Reboot Gameplay Gets Bloody

14 June 2015 7:24 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Bethesda kicked off its E3 presentation tonight with plenty of footage and details about their reboot of the "Doom" video game franchise.

The new "Doom" sees the return of double jumping, vaulting across platforms and maze-like structures. There's also rapid weapon switching with plenty of classic implements including super shotguns, chainsaws, plasma rifles, rocket launchers and more.

Considering that Bethesda was responsible for last year's "The Evil Within", it's also no big surprise that the game looks incredibly gory with levels literally doused in blood and viscera, while take downs sees skull crunching an body explosions to rival anything you've seen in "Mortal Kombat X".

The game not only sports numerous and elaborate multiplayer modes like domination, deathmatch, freeze tag and clan arena. Also announced was 'Doom Snapmap' which allows players to build and share creations within multiplayer as players can craft their own modes and maps using tools that requires no expertise. »

Ryu, Chun-Li And M.Bison All Feature In Furious Street Fighter V Gameplay Clip

11 June 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Part and parcel of the fighting genre’s lasting appeal is its ability to morph and evolve with each passing generation. In 2015, we’ve already witnessed Mortal Kombat X take fatalities to a whole different plane of crazy and, if Capcom’s release schedule proves to be accurate, Street Fighter V will return guns blazing on PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2016.

And though the Japanese publisher has been busy rolling out new characters in recent weeks, this latest tidbit is in relation to the brawler’s gameplay and, specifically, its revamped fighting system. Taking to PlayStation Blog, Capcom has published an array of information relating to the new Variable System, and how it will impact the ways in which you put your opponents to the sword. In the gameplay clip above, we see the return of series stalwarts such as Ryu, Chun-Li And M.Bison. And for more on the nuanced battle system, »

‘Street Fighter V’ shows it’s ready for all challengers

5 June 2015 6:50 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Street Fighter has come a long way since 1987. What started as a quick coin-op brawler has fought its way to the top to become one of the most popular and most recognised video games in the world. After nearly 30 years and appearances in almost 50 games, the legendary brawler is ready for the next round as it gears up for a new fight. Now fighters are preparing for the start of the next entry in the franchise: Street Fighter V. Gamespot reports that the game will be released in early 2016, probably around March. Since the announcement, the rumour mill has begun in earnest regarding who the latest roster of fighters will or won’t include along with any new characters the series could possibly introduce.

Few other fighting series were able to gracefully make the transition from the arcade to the living room. Street Fighter, however, did it with panache, especially »

Tanya Joins The Mortal Kombat X Roster On June 2

28 May 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans of NetherRealm’s well-received and hugely successful Mortal Kombat X rejoice; the game’s second Dlc character, Tanya, will be punching and kicking her way onto the roster starting next week. Owners of the Kombat Pack will be able to grab the shiny new fighter a week earlier, on June 2, with everyone else being able to download her a week later on June 9 for the same price as previous Dlc character, Jason Vorhees.

NetherRealm’s decision to include Tanya as one of the four already-announced Dlc characters has been questioned by some fans for her relative obscurity in comparison to other series stalwarts, especially as there’s still the likes of the screaming, hair-whipping Sindel – who you also tussle with in the game’s story mode – waiting in the wings for her time to shine.

But hey, it’s still early days yet as far as additional content is concerned. »

10 Reasons ‘Kung Fury’ Was the Most Awesome Project in Cannes

27 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While the attention of most Cannes journalists was fixed on George Miller’s adrenaline-rush “Mad Max: Fury Road,” or trying to make sense of the fight sequences in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s “The Assassin” (where rivals dance around a bit, bow and then walk off into the woods), a select group of people were having their minds blown by “Kung Fury,” a 30-minute homage to all things ’80s — from Chuck Norris to Cannon films, “Street Fighter” graphics to its synthesizer pop score. After premiering last Friday in Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, the short hits YouTube this Thursday, and the world will never be the same. Here’s 10 reasons why:

1. It Takes a Foreigner to Truly Appreciate the Insanity of American ’80s Entertainment

Writer-director David Sandberg was born in Sweden. “My family didn’t have cable when I grew up, so I missed out on a lot on the great television shows from the ’80s, »

Warner Bros. Interactive Postpones Mortal Kombat X On PS3 And Xbox 360 Once Again

27 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite arriving to a warm reception on current-gen systems and PC, there’s a cloud of doubt brewing above the head of Mortal Kombat X‘s PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. Prior to the brawler’s April release, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive pushed the port to June 2 in order to allocate all available resources to the current-gen and PC renditions.

However, with the rescheduled release date now right around the corner, it appears as though the company has quietly postponed the port again, which has slipped from June 2 to an unspecified date in the fall. First picked up by Kotaku, the outlet reports that a series of retailers have altered their online listings to reflect this delay, with GameStop in particular changing the release date from next Tuesday to December 31 – a fail-safe that connotes Warner isn’t ready to release further details.

There’s no rhyme or reason as to why »

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Outpaces Battlefield To Become Biggest UK Launch Of 2015

26 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Critical praise for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is beginning to be reflected in the threequel’s sales figures, now that CD Projekt Red’s gargantuan RPG has secured the biggest UK launch for 2015 hitherto.

Outpacing the likes of Dying Light, Bloodborne and Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline – which held the title until Wild Hunt‘s arrival – retail analyst Chart-Track brings word that sales for CD Projekt Red’s title were 53% up on Hardline, and an eye-watering 608% more than those accumulated by The Witcher III: Assassin of Kings back in 2012. An overwhelmingly positive debut, then.

Chart-Track detailed some additional information regarding The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s launch, revealing that PlayStation 4 accounted for 63% of the sales, with Xbox One and PC making up the remainder of the figures. As for Destiny’s House of Wolves expansion, there’s no data to report on the sophomore add-on as the company doesn’t »

Is Jaden Smith Starring in Static Shock?

26 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Will Smith is playing Deadshot in Suicide Squad. Jada Pinkett Smith played Fish Mooney on Gotham. Now the DC Comics world may have hooked another member of the Smith family. Speaking to Flicks and the City about superheroes, actor Tyler James Williams (Dear White People) noted how “it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.” We last reported on Static Shock back in October when Warner Bros. announced that its digital division would be developing series based on the DC Comics along with Mortal Kombat and Critters. Django Unchained producer Reginald Hudlin is taking the lead on the Static Shock series, which will feature Virgil Hawkins, aka the superhero “Static”, who has advanced powers of electromagnetism. [caption id="attachment_250342" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We should definitely take Williams’ comment with a grain of salt.

Mortal Kombat X creator says Tanya Dlc will arrive in June

25 May 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Creator of the Mortal Kombat series, Ed Boon, has just announced via Twitter that the long awaited Tanya Dlc should become available for Mortal Kombat X in early June.

Boon took to Twitter in response to a fan’s tweet questioning when the Dlc would become available.

Ed Boon (@noobde) May 24, 2015

Despite the fact that Boon failed to give a specific release date, fans can still rest fairly easy in the knowledge that they should have access to the new character in the coming weeks.

On top of this, Tanya isn’t the only Dlc character up for grabs in NetherRealm’s latest beat ‘em up. With Jason Voorhees already available to play, and both Predator and Tremor on their way, Mortal Kombat »

Weekly News Roundup: An Xbox One victory, new ‘Assassin’s’, and more

17 May 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Press the pause button and stretch those fingers: it’s time to roundup the news that you might have missed from the world of gaming this week.

Horror fans are still reeling over the cancellation of Silent Hills, and so is Guillermo del Toro. CinemaBlend reported Guillermo del Toro has caught wind of the Silents Hills petition and is willing to add his name to the list. Mr. del Toro shared his hope for the games revival, but the chances of that happening are slim to none at this point. That doesn’t mean del Toro has given up on games. It was accidentally confirmed that del Toro’s movie studio would be working on a cinematic trailer for Fallout 4 according to the Nerdist. Although this does not mean del Toro will be involved in the project, it does mean that Fallout 4 is indeed happening.

CD Projekt Red has a million reasons to celebrate. »

Brock Lesnar In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate?

15 May 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ubisoft

Former WWE and Ufc champion Brock Lesnar has turned up in the most unlikely of places – in concept art for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The latest game in the Assassin’s Creed series, Syndicate is set for a fall release. The appearance of a character clearly resembling Lesnar was first noticed by Kotaku, and the evidence is pretty compelling: the character in question has a tattoo on his back almost identical to The Beast Incarnate.

Even more interesting is who “Lesnar” is fighting in the game, at least in the screenshots released to date: a character with tribal tattoos very similar to those of Frank Mir, Lesnar’s longtime Ufc rival, and who he was linked to a fight with prior to deciding to hang up his Mma gloves for good and commit to the WWE from here on out.

So, will this be an Easter egg staying in the game, »

Latest Mortal Kombat X Patch Sets Its Sights On Character-Specific Issues Across PS4, Xbox One

14 May 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm are putting the final touches on the latest patch for acclaimed fighter Mortal Kombat X, which will release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game later today.

Placing a heavy emphasis on gameplay tweaks, along with character-specific fixes, the update will make its debut first on PS4 before permeating to Microsoft’s current-gen system. Currently, neither publisher or developer have detailed a specific timeframe for the Xbox One patch, though we’ll update this post when we hear anything official.

In terms of the update itself, Mortal Kombat X users can look forward to matchmaking improvements within the game’s online segment, coupled with a fix to an exploit that allow brawlers to consistently block attacks while still damaging their opponents.

There’s a whole host of patch notes over on NetherRealm’s official site. Here, we’ve cherry-picked the gameplay fixes for you to consult. »

NBC’s 2015-16 Season: Check Out Photos from Blindspot, The Player, Superstore, and More

10 May 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

To quote one of the bad guys from Mortal Kombat: It has begun! In anticipation of this week's upfronts schedule, NBC dropped an announcement of their 2015-16 lineup, including hugely anticipated bows of series such as Game of Silence, People Are Talking, and Blindspot, the latest mystery series from the intensely busy Greg Berlanti. A lot of the material sounds, at the very least, interesting, but considering this being a visual medium and all, pictures speak much more than words. So, NBC has offered us a hefty look at the season of premieres that will be up for viewing upon the kick-off of the 2015-16 season, after already getting our first glimpse at Heroes Reborn. The pictures also cover Superstore, a new workplace comedy starring America Ferrera; The Player, an action-drama teaming Wesley Snipes with Philip Winchester; Heartbreaker, about one of the few female heart surgeons in the world, »
