All this plus some interesting news about Ronda Rousey.

It was summer break, 1988 Hesperia California. I was 16 years old. We had just returned to my friend Jason’s house from the mall after purchasing the brand new Metallica album, “…And Justice for All”. Listening to the cassette in his room and analyzing the finer points of their discography, the conversation turned to the “Ride the Lightning” album, and an epic instrumental track, “The Call of Ktulu”.

I hadn’t given the song in question much thought, it was a sweeping orchestration piece that held little to interest the mind of an average 16 year old metal fan. But that’s when Jason told me something that I didn’t know, something that would literally change my life in a very dramatic way from that moment forward.

It was based on a book. Continue reading

  ansatsu-kyoushitsu-tv     The Assassination Classroom anime is based upon the manga of the same name. Rather than attempting to re-invent the wheel, the quick rundown on the series is as follows: One day, the moon exploded, leaving it in a perpetual crescent-moon shape. The creature who claims responsibility for the destruction also claims it will destroy the world in March of next year. With powers beyond human comprehension, no military can stand against it. Yet, for some reason, it chooses to take up occupancy as a teacher in the worst class of Kunugigaoka Middle School. The fate of the world rests in the hands of its students, as they have until graduation to figure out how to murder their teacher and collect ten billion yen for saving the world.

Electronic Arts’ Peter Moore recently has continued his company’s defence of why the upcoming “Star Wars: Battlefront” video game will not feature a single player campaign.

Speaking with Gamespot, Moore says the key reason why they didn’t do one is a reason you’re probably not expecting – that they felt not enough people would be interested. Asked if games with single player campaigns sell better, Moore says:

“So, there’s two phenomena with that statement. The first is that yes, you might be right. The second is that very few people actually play the single-player on these kinds of games. That’s what the data points to.”

Of course “Star Wars” isn’t exactly “Call of Duty,” and this a franchise where a rich mythology means a story-driven campaign seems a requirement. Moore says EA and DICE are admittedly taking a gamble with this and they’ll wait and see how it works out:

“Well, you never kick yourself about these things. You make a decision, years out, and you plan for what the world looks like when a game ships in two or three years. That’s about the intuitiveness about the executive producer, and his or her vision for the game. Between when a dev team starts work on a game, and when it finishes, the world becomes a different place.”

“Star Wars: Battlefront” is currently on track for a release in November.

With “Kingsman: The Secret Service” being one of the big success stories of the year, it’s no surprise that other film adaptations of the works of comic author Mark Millar that are currently in development have scored another look at by the studios.

One previously talked about project is his 2010 comic “Nemesis,” a super villain origin film about a billionaire genius and fighter who travels the world as a costumed menace. Joe Carnahan was slated to direct at last report, taking over from the late Tony Scott, and Ridley Scott’s shingle Scott Free would produce.

Now, The Tracking Board reports that the project has jumped studios to Warner Bros. Pictures where it is now in active development. Carnahan and his brother Matthew Michael Carnahan penned the most recent script draft.

Bloodborne is the latest release of game publisher FromSoftware. In their own words, “Face your fears as you search for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire. Danger, death and madness lurk around every corner of this dark and horrific world, and you must discover its darkest secrets in order to survive.”

If you have any familiarity with the game’s developers through their previously acclaimed titles, Demon’s Souls or Dark Souls I/II, then there isn’t too much that you don’t already know about the types of games that they produce. If you aren’t familiar with their games, then I have a whole lot to tell you about.
