Lords of the Fallen trailer

The “Challenge” trailer for the upcoming RPG Lords of the Fallen has been released by Namco Bandai. Check it out below (trailer courtesy of GameNewsOfficial).

The game certainly looks to be taking a cue from Dark Souls in terms of difficulty and its look. The developers have stressed that the game is not a franchise, and because of that CI Games and Deck 13 are looking to make the game’s lore memorable and give players a fluid combat system. Just as in From Software’s title, players will need to learn from their mistakes in order to survive.

Lords of the Fallen will be released later this year for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bioshock movie back on?

bioshockCould the long talked about Bioshock movie be back on? It could be a possibility, as Sony Pictures has recently registered several domain names. Kotaku reported that Sony registered the domain names bioshock-movie.com, bioshock-movie.net, and bio-shock.net. Sony Pictures wasn’t originally involved in bringing the game to the big screen, but as all three of these domains have Sony Pictures listed under their registration information it now appears that they may be doing so.

Originally, Universal Pictures was going to develop the film back in 2008, and it was going to helmed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Verbinski ended up backing out a year later, when production halted due to budget concerns and the fact the director wanted an R rating...

The Last of Us was one of lgroundedast year’s best games, and for many one of the best for the PS3 for all time. Now the game is set to get its last piece of DLC for the PS3. This DLC will also be part of the complete package (along with the other multiplayer packs and the single player “Left Behind”) when the game is released for the PS4 under the title The Last of Us: Remastered.

All Star To My DOTA by Ramona Azween

One of our friends has wrote a song dedicated to DOTA player quite sometime ago (Hoping she’s also wrote a song for our Animal Crossing Malaysia facebook group). The song was nice (at least for me), and I always admire people that wrote their own songs. Enjoy.
