Never stop punching in this Jack Reacher tie-in game

Monster Hunter is getting a Hollywood adaptation

During Capcom's TGS presentation for Monster Hunter Stories, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto kind of just dropped a bomb on the audience -- "there's a Hollywood adaptation of Monster Hunter in progress," he said. Uh, okay! Although it wa...   read

The Uncharted movie is in development hell again

It's hard to believe that the Uncharted movie project originated in 2008, but somehow someway, people are still trying to get it made. I mean why not right? It would be so easy to script, given that the games are basically movies themselves...   read



That new Final Fantasy movie is out and apparently sucks

I'm not a Final Fantasy fan, and it sounds like many movie critics aren't either as Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is 'sitting pretty' with a nine percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That means it is tied with Adam Sandler's The Cobbler an...   read

Watch the first 12 minutes of Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive

The Final Fantasy XV delay is mostly okay (I'd rather them deliver a massive day-one patch on the disc than take the approach Hello Games did with No Man's Sky), but it...complicates things when it comes to the Kingsglaive movie. ...   read
