1. VALVe ‘EARLY ACCESS’ [GeekyGadgets.com]
We now have another reason to hail Valve as the best name in gaming; project “early access” will give Steam users the ability to buy a game still in the beta stages. Much like Mojang did with Minecraft, this will give fans the ability to play while the game is being developed!
2. DEADISLAND2 STORY [trailer]
DI1 was a near-perfect zombie experience (aside from too many useless/annoying quests) so I wasn’t that interested in a sequel. But seeing how the characters are now being brought back into an ongoing storyline…I’m interested!
3. KOJIMA CONSPIRACY
Now, I haven’t paid attention to the whole FOXHOUND storyline since MetalGear3, but, I’m one of those gamers that’s been on the sidelines watching the story unfold…and this interests me!
First there was the [trailer] back in 09.12 announcing the return of Solid in MGS:GroundZeroes (before MetalGear:Revengeance even hit shelves).
Then at the SpikeGameAwards there was the haunting [trailer] for an unknown game called “Phantom Pain” (that people immediately started calling a new MG game).
Now IGN has posted an interview with an alleged star from PP in which he “accidentally” leaked a connection to MGS…some are even speculating that the interview itself was faked using CGI (I think it gets crazier than that…) you can checkout all their thoughts on it [here].
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? Or are you like me, and have completely lost track of the whole MetalGear time/storyline?
1. MEGAN FOX IN TMNT [i09.com]
Yup, Bay and Fox are friends again, and surprise surprise she’s the lead female in his remake of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While I’m not excited about the film, she is still a total babe. This gives my chance of watching it a +1
2. THE AMAZING GREEN GOBLIN [HollywoodReporter]
Mhmm…seems they haven’t learned from the emo-haired SpiderMan3.
Amazing SpiderMan 2 will now have THREE villains…possibly. While Dafoe will always be the perfect Goblin in my eyes, we now have Rhino, Electro, and Norman Osborn in the mix. Hopefully they’re just setting it up for another film…
3. ENDANGERED TV [IGN.com]
2013’s list of shows being canceled has been released, and I’m not overly shocked by it.
On the verge of cancellation are shows like: CSI:NY, Law&Order:SVU, 90210, Parks And Rec, and Community…which in my eyes died after Season3.
And ones that are definitely cut: The Office (finally), 30 Rock (duh), Last Resort, Fringe, and Gossip Girl.
But you can check out the full list of everything for yourself…
1. ABRAMS + VALVE = HALIFE? [IGN.com]
At today’s DICE summit JJ and VALVe head Gabe Newell hit the stage to talk about how they both hope to one day collaborate on videogames AND movies…
2. MORE STARWARS SPINOFFS [ew.com]
Turns out that Han Solo and Boba Fett will be joining Yoda with their own solo movies. See, this is what I wasn’t looking forward to…Solo NOT being played by Harrison Ford! Buuut a feature length film starring Fett will probably make up for it.
3. LAST OF US REVIEW [video]
IGN gets to play the upcoming third-person-post-apocalyptic-zombie-smuggler game. At E3 this looked great, now it looks amazing!
JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE EDITION!
1. IGN SAYS ‘NO’ TO JGL [IGN.com]
I get what they’re saying, it sucks to try and ride the coattails of Nolan’s trilogy. But at the same time I think it would suck more to try and reinvent the character a third time just for a teamup movie.
2. VILLAIN REVEALED [video]
I was just having a conversation this weekend with a friend about why they’ll probably choose this guy as the villain. Here’s a hint; he’s DC’s Thanos ;)
3. ANOTHER NEW POSTER [/Film]
This morning we got Star Trek, this afternoon, Superman!
