SDCC’08: Mirror’s Edge Comic

Electronic Arts has announced its upcoming Mirror’s Edge video game is getting turned into a comic book from DC’s Wildstorm.  This is quite the change from what seems to be the norm of having comic books turned into games and movies. Mirror’s Edge the comic combines the talents of writer and story designer Rhianna Pratchett with artist Matthew Dow Smith. Pratchett is also wrote the script for the game, so everything is canon. The six-part comic series will introduce readers to Faith and her fellow ‘Runners’ – a “network of couriers who use acrobatic moves to avoid being detected as…

Watchmen Fever Increases with Game Announcement

Looks like Warner Bros. is going all out in the cranking up the hype machine and tie-ins for next year’s Watchmen movie.  The company’s interactive division has announced at least two Watchmen inspired games that tie to the movie. The videogames based on WATCHMEN will go beyond the film and delve into the characters, rivalries and challenges in a mature action-brawler. The game provides gamers with visceral superhero combat as urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl. The game will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PCs in 2009.  What’s interesting about this game announcement is the…

DC Universe Online

The game has been slowing, but finally gamers got a look at Jim Lee’s DC Universe Online game.  While it is a MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game, the trailer below only shows NPC heroes and villains duking it out.  If this game has the scope and grandeur of World of Warcraft, then I’m sold. Another behind the scenes trailer after the jump.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Trailer

The trailer for the upcoming game has hit the Interwebnets. I haven’t been a big fan of the Mortal Kombat series since the mid-90s, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to give this game a pass as well.  Anyone eagerly anticipating this? via Game Trailers

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

I love seeing Batman taking down Sub-Zero as only MidWay can do. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVwWaemMkCE[/youtube] I really, really hope this is a kick-ass game and not a toned down kid friendly game that sucks the life out of both Mortal Kombat and the DCU

Street Fighter: The Movie…Again…

Variety is reporting the Street Fighter videogame is set to make another appearance on the silver screen. One would think the horrible failure that was the Jean-Claude Van Damme Street Fighter (1994) would be a hint to proceed cautiously with any other film in the franchise. Instead of following te Jean Claude character, this script, penned by Justin Marks focuses on female fighter Chun Li on a campaign for justice. Justin Marks is also penning the Voltron movie for New Regency, Super Max and He-Man for Warner Bros. Street Fighter is set to go into production in 2008 with 20th…

UPDATED: If You Like Lego Star Wars, You’ll Love…

Oh man, first it was Lego Star Wars, then Lego Batman, now Lego and LucasArts are teaming up for Lego Indiana Jones: The Videogame. The game will be a tounge-in-cheek as players take on the role of Indiana Jones as he whips his way through the three movies. Way back in 1995 or so, when Lego released it’s Adventure series, I posted how cool it would be to have actual Indiana Jones playsets. Well it looks like 12 years of waiting is finally paying off as Lego and Lucasfilm have announced we’ll get Indiana Jones playsets in January 2008.

Batman Lego Game On the Way

Fans of Lego Batman and video games have a reason to rejoice as Warner Bros and TT Games will bring LEGO Batman: The Videogame to consoles and the PC in 2008. Judging from the press release sent out by the company, this game will be similar to the LEGO Star Wars games that have shot up the charts. “Batman spans several generations as one of the most popular DC Super Heroes, and LEGO BATMAN will appeal to several generations of gamers who grew up idolizing the Dark Knight and playing with LEGO toys,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development…
