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 getting a final piece of DLC and is coming to the PS4

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.

LEGO The Hobbit- A familiar journey that’s still worth your time

legohobbit4It seems we’ve gotten more than our share of LEGO games as of late. The plastic bricks even hit the big screen this year, followed by the prerequisite video game tie-in. One would think all of this exposure would burn out gamers on the franchise, and yet the games still provide enough enjoyment to make us dive into each and every entry. The latest title, LEGO The Hobbit, is no exception, as it provides the same fun gameplay as previous titles, with a couple of tweaks and one of the most coherent narratives of the series. The narrative hews very closely to its source material, that being the first two Hobbit films from director Peter Jackson, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3- A Crooked Mile- The tension mounts

ep3twauTelltale Games The Wolf Among Us has now reached its halfway mark. To date, the series has matched that of The Walking Dead Season One in quality, even with sadly being marred by the same continuing technical issues on the console versions. The noirish tale of murder in Fabletown has thus far proved to be highly engrossing, with the lead character of Bigby Wolf proving to be an engaging and likeable hero of sorts. The story has had its share of twists and turns through the first two chapters, and contains a cast of well defined characters based on Bill Willingham’s excellent Vertigo comics series Fables. While Episode 2- Smoke and Mirrors was primarily setting the stage for things to come, it still held your interest throughout, even though the overall plot didn’t progress all that much...
