Word of a film adaption of Metal Gear Solid has been circulating since 2006. Almost a decade later, and nothing concrete has really come of it yet. That's more or less par for the course when it comes to movies based on ...

A Million Ways to Die in the West game has a million ways to wax nostalgic about retro games

Seth MacFarlane chooses to inject nearly every bit of media he touches with a rush of nostalgia from his childhood. I'm a little similar, but I'm nowhere near as rich. And I'm kind of on the fence about the upcoming movie A M...

Pixel Heart is a documentary/game featuring talents from Rez, Journey, more photo
Pixel Heart is a documentary/game featuring talents from Rez, Journey, more
by Steven Hansen

This is confusing, but cool. Pixel Heart is going to be a documentary that visits a bunch of talented, global folks in videogames -- Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez), Robin Hunicke (Sims, Journey), Edmundo Bordeu (Zeno Clash), Mark Healey (Little Big Planet), and Eyram Tawia (Letiarts) -- and then trots back to France for a big game jam.

The game jam will produce 12 games, 6 of which will be available to play online, 6 of which will use some sort of dedicated hardware.

To fund this wild project, Pixel Heart has taken to French crowd funding platform Ulule, which you can donate to regardless of region.

This all sounds amazing, and the crowdfunding video sells it. Seriously, at least watch the kitchen scene at 3:35. It makes A la cartridge look bad (which it obviously is or it wouldn't be #cancelled).
