New Jason Voorhees figurine based on his NES sprite

The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, a.k.a. NECA, has just revealed a new San Diego Comic-Con-exclusive figurine of Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees. Now, why would I be talking about film merch on a videogame website? Because this particular version of Jason is modeled after his purple-tinted sprite in LJN's Friday the 13th on NES.

Buh!?

Apparently, a hardcore Friday the 13th fan painted a custom NES Jason and shared it online a good while back. NECA saw it and thought it was baller enough to turn into a legit item. The final figure will glow in the dark and come in a package reminiscent of the NES game's rainbow-colored box. It's a rather reasonable $25, though it'll only be available at SDCC.

So yeah, that happened.

State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....more

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
