First look at the CG animated Heavenly Sword movie

That direct-to-home-video Heavenly Sword movie didn't inspire much confidence when it was first talked about. This trailer, I'm sorry to say, has done little to change my mind. The CG animated film from Blockade Entertainment is due in spr...

Ninja Theory made no cash from Heavenly Sword exclusivity

Enslaved, unlike Ninja Theory's last game, is going to appear on both the PS3 and Xbox 360. There's a very good reason for it too, since the developer has confessed that despite Heavenly Sword's massive hype, it never made the company a sin...

A date with a fiery redhead: Heavenly Sword on September 12th

I've always had a thing for redheads, but this particular one is really special. It's just a shame that I haven't had the chance to get to know her that well. I first saw her at an industry event in 2006 -- I was there for work. This leggy...
