Well, very soon Assassin’s Creed, the latest film adaptation of Ubisoft’s critically-acclaimed action-adventure franchise, will premiere. Hoping that this could be the project to break through the oft-negative stereotypes of videogame-to-film projects, 20th Century Fox released one last new trailer (DANG, there’s been A LOT of those lately, huh?) for the film, along with a one minute-long excerpt from the movie. Continue reading The Final Trailer for “Assassin’s Creed” Film Raises Expections
We’ve have some bad (Alone in the Dark), decent (Silent Hill) and good (Mortal Kombat) video game movies, but never a great one. Well, I think Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed film (taking place during the Spanish Inquisition) just might be that great movie. That trailer is so **SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!***
Assassin’s Creed releases in theaters December 21st, 2016.
When you want to have some fun outdoors with your friends, playing paintball sounds like a great idea. Now take that, and add throwing smoke grenades. Now, image the location being a snowy Canadian forest. Sounds awesome, right? Sure, but AlabasterSlim and his group of buddies didn’t stop there. They went the extra mile, dressed up as characters from The Division, added some of the user interface (UI) elements from the game to the footage in post-production, and captured the whole thing in first-person. It. Is. AWESOME-SAUCE!!

Well, we saw this coming from a mile away. The last couple of years for THQ had been a little financially unstable and touch-and-go, but last week it seems that long-time game publisher THQ has finally gone out of business. This is especially sad as I, myself, had been a fan of the company’s games over the years, including Darksiders, Saint’s Row, the WWE games, and the upcoming South Park game. Even after entering Chapter 11 bankruptcy and trying to keep the company together via getting bought by a single bidder, the company instead saw its game development studios and intellectual properties sold off to various game companies (like Ubisoft, SEGA, Crytek, etc.) at auction last week to bidders.
