Sony and Naughty Dog have today announced that they'll be bringing The Last of Us to cinemas. No information about the actual adaptation has been released, although fans will be happy to know Naughty Dog are keeping hold of the reigns to make sure things don't end up completely sucking. Screen Gems (Resident Evil, Underworld) has been brought on as distributor, while Neil Druckmann, creative director on the game, will be writing the script. Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and ...
While the Lord of the Rings franchise focussed on a small group of people changing the world in a big way, The Hobbit was more about the group (at least up to a point). This isn't something that's been lost on the team behind LEGO The Hobbit either, as they've added new ways for you to work together with your "buddies." Warner Brothers today released a new trailer showcasing these new abilities, and the importance of your group.
Warner Brothers yesterday officially announced Batman: Arkham Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The next-gen only detective game will be a sequel to Arkham City, and will be the last game in the series. Arkham Knight will take place in Gotham City proper this time around, and you'll have access to the Batmobile to help you move from place to place. You'll be able to get into the Batsuit once again this year.
Watch Dogs was delayed at the end of last year, rather unceremoniously confusing the next-gen launch for countless people that had pre-ordered bundles. The game that many thought would define next-gen was knocked back without a specific release date to expect it, and since then we've been waiting for more news.
The N64 is a nice piece of kit, with a library of games that make it well worth keeping on the shelf. Still, there's one thing that isn't all that cool about it. If you want to play it, you need to keep around an older TV, or use a converter from eBay. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to play Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask on the flatscreen, without using an emulator?
There are a sizeable group of people who are hoping to one day play the game they loved last-gen in an improved, HD Remaster-Plus style on either the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4. It happened with Tomb Raider, it almost happened with Skyrim, and now it might just happen with the Mass Effect Trilogy.
The Wii U has not been the success that Nintendo hoped it would be. The reasons for this have been debated, ranging from consumers getting tired with older Nintendo franchises to people wondering if the product was branded poorly. My personal response to these two claims: no, people are not tired of old Nintendo franchises; and yes, the Wii U has suffered from poor branding. However, I would argue that Nintendo does deserve your hard earned dollars in 2014.
Bioware's next entry in the Dragon Age series is on its way and skeptics are waiting with baited breath to see what happens. Is this going to be a miss for the Bioware boys, moving along with the disappointing Dragon Age II or will it be a homerun smash returning to the glory of Dragon Age Origins? Only time will tell.
If you've played an AAA game in the last twelve months, there's a good chance you've come across the concept of the 'Season Pass'. This gives you an entire collection of DLC at a reduced price, usually the cost of one DLC pack. It started, among other places, with Call of Duty, and Infinity Ward alumni Respawn were expected to continue the trend. They won't be - Titanfall will not have a season pass.
The new generation is definitely here now, and for Nintendo it's been almost 18 months since they released their latest device, the Wii U (and even longer since the 3DS came out). Perhaps it's no surprise then that the house of Mario is shutting down their online services from last-gen. With almost no expections, the Wii and DS are now offline consoles.
