Insomniac takes their boys to Hollywood in 2015
I’ve always thought Ratchet and Clank would make an awesome Saturday morning kids show.
Thanks to the folks over at Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment we’ll get to see them shine. Even though the former is known for Escape From Planet Earth we shouldn’t fret, for they’re working closely with Insomniac and their lead writer, T.J. Fixman, on the script, world, and assets.
The Last of Us Runs on Ancient Technology. God It’s Beautiful.
Naughty Dog is one of my favorite developers. Their Uncharted games alone make the PS3 worth owning, and anyone who’s ever played their titles knows the truth is that they always manage to pull off far more than the hardware has any right producing. That’s a trend that seems set to continue with their new, upcoming IP The Last of Us, a Walking Dead-like vehicle about the last scraps of humankind trying to survive after what appears to be (yet another) zombie apocalypse. And while I’m personally getting a little tired of zombies, I can already tell you that I’ll be overlooking that prejudice so I can play this game when it comes out.
Just looking over these gameplay trailers from The Last of Us is enough to make a guy wonder whether we need a PS4 or Xbox 420 at all. Oh, sure, the specs of those new systems, for real in the case of PS4, for rumor in the case of Xbox 420, seem awfully drool-worthy, and no doubt the games will be jaw dropping and have fabulously smooth frame rates, but c’mon–how can you not look at a game like this, running on hardware whose design process started more than a decade ago and which released to the public 7 years ago, and not be just amazed at its incredible beauty? Everything about it is phenomenal, from the lighting and texturing to the detailed animation and lush (or filthy, depending on the scene) beauty of everything you see. I’m smitten. Smutten. Smoted. Whatever it is, I’m all over it
With games like this possible on tech as old as PS3′s, I really can’t say I have any worries about the graphical capabilities of any next-gen console, even Wii U. If they can do this much inside of 256MB of RAM and 256MB of video memory, just imagine what’s possible when they’ve got 1, 2 or even 8GB of RAM to work with. Crazy, man. The Last of Us is gonna make you wonder why you need a PS4 at all.
Go on, take a look. You know you want to.
Finally, Halo 4 Gets Fans the Live Action Treatment
Halo 4 is coming. Halo fans of the world have been praying to the Hollywood gods for a Halo movie since its release. Writers have written, studios been chosen and a director/producer duo were selected that would make any film buff stain their pants, thrice. Yet in the end we got nothing, until now, and it’s the Halo 4 release that’s finally brought all the pieces into play. Click past the jump for more and the second episode.
Resident Evil: Undead Sexy
Growing up I’ve noticed life can be like being on a talk show, with no clue why you’re there. You wait patiently to find out what happens next, you’re introduced to insanely hot women and you pray she isn’t a man. If you’re lucky, she’s the old nerdy friend you never paid much attention to.
The fifth Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Retribution, is that very girl, looking monumentally epic, unlike anything in the previous flicks. And there’s a kicker, too: she brought more old friends (i.e. Rain/Michelle Rodriguez) you thought were long gone. But what about that new game? Read on after the break for my thoughts and to share your own!
These are the times where the world is on a path of change greater then what any one person or president could ever fathom.
Director Kevin Tancharoen has begun with re-visioning the bloody classic with a more human approach. Some may cry foul and bloody murder to his new approach to beloved world and characters; such as Reptile, Shang Tsung, and the gorgeous Sonya Blade, who’s played by the ever so stunning Jeri Ryan.
Mind you this is a mere pitch to sell his vision to the big wigs at Warner Bros. We may here something in the near future, besides the new game, for now view it and savor it in all its bloody goodness.
