Devil May Cry goes Hollywood

With the success of the Resident Evil franchise game turned movie, Screen Gems hopes to have similar success in Devil May Cry franchise. A quick summary of Devil May Cry for those who don’t know what that is. Dante- Bad ass/human/hybrid/demon avenges his mum’s murder by killing demons. So with that being said Screen Gems has hired Kyle Ward to pen the script and thinks that Devil May Cry will be the next best cash cow for movie goers.

I guess my real question is… Will you be watching this?

PS3 Shipments are being seized in Europe

Europe custom officers will seize shipments of all incoming Playstation 3 consoles. The reasoning is LG has filed a lawsuit against Sony alleging that PS3 violated LG owned Blu-ray patents. Currently the ban is up to 10 days. However, if choosing to do so LG has the right to extent the ban beyond 10 days and even has the right to request the systems be destroyed.

Sony’s response “We are currently looking into this matter, and cannot make any comments at this point in time.”

That’s it? My five year old nephew can come up with a better comment than that.

Holy Fuck: EA Listens to Marketing Criticism

The picture above is the face I am currently frozen in. Why you ask? Not long ago, I highly respected video series on The Escapist released an open letter to EA’s marketing department where they basically tore EA a new one calling their marketing efforts a step backwards for the gaming industry. If you haven’t watched it, it may be one of the most amazing videos ever produced about marketing.

Well, this morning, the Extra Credits team tweeted the following,

WE DID IT! I’ll be sitting down with Rich Hilleman, the CCO of EA, to talk about their marketing and the trajectory of EA later today.

I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the wonderful industry we talk about. Sure, there are giants like Activision who make rotten business decisions and close studios without flinching, but the vast majority of the gaming world is filled with the greatest business practices. We work in an industry with community managers who believe in direct communication with their fans and will very often listen to their fans when creating new experiences for us. While all business is dog eat dog, at least we can have a little bit of pride in knowing gaming business still reflects the spirit of gamers, and that isn’t something you can say about everyone.

Modern Warfare 3 Countdown Clicker: Speculations

The new website findmakarov.com has set off quite a buzz in the online community. Find Makarov is basically a website that is supposedly counting down to the Modern Warfare 3 announcement.

I just want to give you guys some of the more frequently occurring speculations/observations I have read about the countdown ticker on the web.

1. A lot of people have reason to believe that this is simply Acitivision counting down to Modern Warfare 3. The reason for this assumption is because when Modern Warfare 2 came out they also released a clicker: the clicker counted down to a trailer of the game.  Acitivision at that time denied the clicker as something they created and said it was a hoax, but in the end it turned out to be a turn MW2 clicker. Acitivsion is denying that this  new clicker  at Find Makarov belongs to them so they could be lying like they have in the past. Its actually registered to a guy in Canada and they are in California so…they could be telling the truth who knows.

2. It could be Respawn studios trying to punch out some of the hype of the latest Modern Warfare game. Respawn studios is a company that was created after the top employees of Infinity Ward left because they did not see their vision achieved. With EA and People Can Fly creating a mock Call of Duty game I wouldn’t put it past EA and Respawn to steal some of their hype as well(Respawn is now working for EA).

3. Lastly it could be just some random guy in Canada creating this website to fuck with the world. This wouldn’t be the first time something like this happened, and I wouldn’t put it past any hacker. The question is but why…???

Well guys we just have to wait and see…. Hopefully it doesn’t click down to the end of the Mayan calendar.

Australia Bans New Mortal Kombat Game

Sorry all you Aussie gamers but you will not be able to play the new Mortal Kombat game. This is really shitty for Warner Bro’s because an entire fucking continent will not be able to play the new MK game.  Sorry guys!

The Australia’s Classification Board(basically the U.S. ESRB) does not have a mature rating for games. Only games for 15 year olds any higher in age and the game simply too mature. Every adult gamer in the outback will go unsatisfied, again sorry guys.

We all know as soon as you play Mortal Kombat you go around killing people with your freeze powers. Its horrible!

I love how porn is legal in Aussie, fucking double standard!
