‘Sid Meier’s Beyond Earth’ Trailer

I should be a little reluctant to admit this, but I find the cinematics (the movies that bridge one section of a video game with another) fascinating.  For instance, I like Blizzard’s “StarCraft” but when I am being honest to myself I admit that I care slightly less about the gameplay than the cool little movies […]

‘Temple Run’ To Get Movie Treatment

If you’re among the people that think the ‘Transformers’ films were too cerebral, and “Mortal Combat” too allegorical, there’s going to be a movie based on the iOS video game “Temple Run.” Though there’s the advantage that the video game has so little plot – run, jump, rinse, repeat – that the filmmakers will have […]

Diablo III Is Different On Consoles

Diablo III was recently released for consoles like the XBox and Playstation 3, and I wanted to find some information on how well they translated to gaming consoles.  Graphically, the games may have lost something in translation, though the greatest change is probably due to how the game sounds. I haven’t owned a video game […]

‘Dead Space 3’ Trailer

‘Dead Island: Riptide’ Trailer

It’s been awhile, relatively speaking, since I last posted.  That will tend to happen when I don’t feel like making a mountain out of a molehill, like with the rumor that Marvel is considering adding either Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” (as Rocket Raccoon). If I said […]

‘FUSE’ Video Game Trailer

I have never heard of FUSE till I received an email from Electronic Arts.  Having looked at there trailer, I have to admit that I like what I see. I particularly enjoyed the camaraderie between the characters, and would have been so happy to see one of them say “It’s not my fault!” in the […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Video Game Trailer

Here’s the trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” video game that’s based upon Marc Webb’s upcoming feature.  I like the Iguana character, though I am not sure that’s he’s actually a part of Spider-Man’s mythology (according to Wikipedia, there is indeed a character called the Iguana, and he’s linked to the Lizard). That being said […]
