What the hell's up with that wild new Kojima Productions logo?


Pioneer spirit
Dec 16
// Steven Hansen
Hideo Kojima took former Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkawa with him to serve as the art director for Kojima Productions. The result? A Giger-looking logo much more in line with Shinkawa's style than the previous slick Koj...

Kojima Productions 'could consider movies, animations,' including del Toro collaboration


'Definitely interested' in VR, too
Dec 16

Kojima Productions is not just a video game development company. The first project will be a game because that's what fans expect, but from there? "The focus is on digital content, so we could consider movies, animations, an...

This tweet by Glitch Ritual reliably turned up several times a day in my Twitter feed over the holiday weekend and so I must share it. It's a pretty simple trick with VLC player's settings (not a specifically made black and ...

Someone recreated the piano scene from Big in Fallout 4


And it only took 19 hours!
Nov 14
// Jordan Devore
Settlement building in Fallout 4 isn't as user friendly or refined as it should be (I'd like my garden of melons to not float three feet off the ground, if at all possible), but that isn't going to hold people back from making impressive things. Take, for instance, this walking piano:

Orcs sure do look cool in the Warcraft movie


Humans, less so
Nov 06

The first official trailer for Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie is out, and it looks all right! I think? It's hard to say based on just this small amount of footage for a film not releasing until June 2016.

The Witcher video games have a lot of sexin' going on, but that doesn't mean any movie made about the franchise will be automatically relegated to the late-night softcore adult entertainment channels. There's a silver sc...

Latest Warcraft movie poster drops the giant shoulder armor


Out of sight, out of mind
Nov 02
// Jordan Devore
Fresh or rotten, I suspect I'll wind up watching Warcraft in a theater. We're many months out from the June 10, 2016 release of the film, but we're only a few days away from the "worldwide debut" of the first trailer. Until then, here's a new poster. It's better than the last two, wouldn't you agree?

The first full Ratchet and Clank trailer is not great


Another loss for game adaptations!
Oct 17

The first full trailer for the Ratchet and Clank movie has been released, and it's ridiculously generic. I get the "In a world..." joke, and I get the overwrought narrator, but this is the most kids movie-ass trailer I've see...

Nathan Drake's voice actor, Nolan North, reckons we don't want to see an Uncharted movie. In an interview with GamesNewsOfficial, North said that fans are so invested with the Drake we know and love (and lust after - although that might just be me), "no matter who's the star of it," we just don't want a movie.
