Movies based on video games might soon take over the movie industry…

Over the years in the movie industry there haven’t been too many movies that were adapted from video games. There have been some live-action movies based on video games but not enough.

I believe the very first live action video game movie was “Super Mario Bros.” that starred Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Then comes other video game adapted movies such as “Double Dragon”, “Street Fighter”, “Mortal Kombat”, the two “Tomb Raider” movies with Angelina, the Resident Evil franchise, and that’s probably about all.

Well I think you can safely say that “Movies” based upon video games is about ready to take over the industry big time. Over the years we had superhero flicks taking over but I think the superhero industry will die out and movies based on video games will become the next big thing.

Lets look at all the upcoming movies based on video games coming out in the future… we have: “World Of Warcraft” by Sam Raimi, there’s “Heavenly Sword”, the Tomb Raider reboot, The Last of Us, Assassins Creed, Metal Gear Solid, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and there’s even a “Sonic The Hedgehog” movie in development.

Yep, video game movies are definitely on it’s way and it’s gonna be big. I’m glad this is happening ’cause as some of you know, I’m a pretty big video gamer myself. I’m not a video game addict like most people… it’s just what I do when I’m really bored. I didn’t get a PS4 system yet but planning on getting one sometime down the road.


Report: Kiefer Sutherland will voice Solid Snake for “Metal Gear Solid 5” video game!!!

This is pretty cool and interesting so this is worth posting! Kiefer has agreed to voice, Solid Snake, for “Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain”. Solid Snake is one of the most iconic characters in video gaming history. While it’s kind of sad that David Hayter won’t be voicing Snake in this game, I can go with Kiefer as the character. I’ve always thought Kiefer reminded me of the Snake character of “Metal Gear Solid”. Kiefer never voiced a video game before, I don’t think — so this is interesting. Really looking forward to this one.

The “Metal Gear Solid” games are pretty sweet. I only played “Metal Gear Solid 4”, I haven’t played the first 3 yet but want to. Even though I haven’t played the earlier Metal Gear Solid games, the Metal Gear Solid – HD Collection is coming out for the PS3, June 12th. I’m definitely gonna be buying that so I’ll play the earlier MGS games then. These games are so fun to play ’cause stealth is fun. Ya know, “stealth”, you have to hide and you can’t get caught.

Report: Expect plenty more 3D videogames on the way…

Ubisoft video game company predicts that the future of video games will hit hard with 3D video games within two years. While 3D had hit movies with theaters really hard, it hasn’t yet came to the video gaming world. It will soon. The “Avatar” video game was in 3D, but didn’t sell very well. The video game industry will probably re-release old titles to 3D and upcoming new games in 3D as well. This will happen to all video game consoles: X-box 360, Ps3, and possibly the Nintendo Wii. I’ve been wondering if 3D videogames will come ’cause it will be cool to sit there playing videogames with 3D glasses on. Can’t wait for this to start happening!

“Twilight: The Video Game”, why isn’t there one made yet?

The “Twilight” franchise is making merchandise of everything. T-shirts, posters, candy, collectible cards, action figures, board games, etc. I’m sure we’ll soon get animated movies and cartoon versions of the “Twilight” series. What about the video game?

Imagine if you could play the Edward Cullen character in a video game, battling against other vampires and werewolves. Make it an action adventure game similar to the “Tomb Raider” series or “Resident Evil”.

I’m sure the game would be an instant hit if there was one made. There may not be a “Twilight” game yet, but maybe there will be one when the last film “Breaking Dawn” gets made into a film, that way the video game can have the whole story in one game.

There has been “Harry Potter”, “Lord of the Rings” and “Chronicles of Narnia” video games, but no “Twilight” yet. I’m sure we’ll start getting “Twilight” video games soon for all systems. Don’t know when it’s going to happen since there are no reports on a video game of “Twilight” yet, but I’m sure it’s in the planning stages.

Don’t worry kids, I’m sure you’ll get your chance to play the Edward Cullen character soon on your video game systems.


Cool Video: Metallica “Guitar Hero” video game trailer…

Metallica just released the “Guitar Hero” video game trailer already, and this confirms that “Master of Puppets” will be included in the game.

Enjoy the trailer, I had a smile on my face while watching it, as this game is going to be cool. Can’t wait to get it!!!

Expect the Metallica haters to complain that the songs on the game sound better than the original albums, but fuck ’em, right? That’s the whole point of the video game is making the music sound better.

Report: Mark Hamill to do voice overs as the Joker for the “Batman: Arkham Asylum” video game…

This is great news for Star Wars geeks and Batman geeks!!! It’s been announced that Mark Hamill, mostly known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars”, has been casted to do voice overs as the Joker in the new Batman video game, “Arkham Asylum”!!!

Hamill voiced the Joker character many times for Batman animated movies and cartoon series on TV.

More on it here:


Now I’m really looking forward to this game!!!

Below is a video clip of Mark Hamill as the Joker, different scenes of different Joker laughs.

This is gonna be sweet!!!


Confirmed: Metallica will release their own Guitar Hero game…

The boys in Metallica finally confirmed the rumours that they will indeed get their own Guitar Hero game. Where Guitar Hero fans would get the opportunity to play nothing but Metallica songs.

In the game, will have 28 Metallica songs, and the band also picked their favorite songs from other bands they played shows with such as Alice In Chains, the Foo Fighters, Slayer, Machine Head, and Queen.

I’m pretty sure in the game they will let you either choose which band member you’d like to play as, maybe either Kirk and James. Maybe even Lars and Rob. You can either play single player or the band career mode. In the band career mode, you’ll get to play on the stages of some of Metallica’s most famous venues where they played at in the past.

Keep an eye on the band’s website as they’ll give you the updates on the tracklisting’s for the game:


Songs that I think that’ll definitely be on there, this is NOT the official listing, this is just “speculation” of what I think will be on there…:

“Battery”, “Master of Puppets”, “The Thing That Should Not Be”, “Enter Sandman”, “Sad But True”, “The Unforgiven I”, “Where ever I May Roam”, “Nothing Else Matters”, “The Day That Never Comes”, “Cyanide”, “The Judas Kiss”, “All Nightmare Long”, “Whiplash”, “Seek and Destroy”, “Fight Fire With Fire”, “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, “Creeping Death”, “The Call of Ktulu”, “Fade to Black”, “One”, “King Nothing”, “Until It Sleeps”, “Hero of the Day”, “Fuel”, “The Memory Remains”, “Some Kind of Monster”, “St. Anger”, Bob Seger cover of “Turn the Page”.

I think they’re definitely going to do their most popular songs from every album and that list above fits. Although, it would be nice if Metallica will throw some obscure songs that aren’t played on the radio though. I’m sure they will. We’ll wait and see.

I’m definitely looking forward to this and I will buy it when it comes out in 2009 since I’m a huge Metallica fan.


Finally beat Metal Gear Solid 4!!!!!

Tonight, I just beat Metal Gear Solid 4 “Guns of the Patriots”. The ending wasn’t that hard to beat either. Earlier tonight I had to beat one of the final bosses, a boss called the Screaming Mantis. It took me a while to figure out how to beat the Screaming Mantis and it wasn’t too hard, I beat her with no problems at all. After beating Screaming Mantis, I had to put up with a few long storyline scenes before getting to the final boss, to fight Liquid Ocelot. You fight Liquid Ocelot with your bare hands, punching and kicking, like a wrestling match type of thing, you don’t use weapons on the last boss. Liquid Ocelot was easy to beat.

After you beat Liquid the last boss, you have to sit through long storyline segments to complete the ending. The ending of the game was very good and very touching. The reason the game has more storylines than the action is that this game is meant to be for the storyline. “Metal Gear Solid 4” made you feel like you were watching a movie on the big screen. Beautiful game though, one of the best games I’ve played in years. Now it really makes me want to buy a Playstation 2 so I can play the earlier Metal Gear Solid games.

This game took me forever to beat, very long game. Glad I finally beat the game, now I can move on to a different game. Next game I plan on playing next is “The Bourne Conspiracy”, I’ll start the Jason Bourne game tomorrow.


I officially want to buy a Playstation 2!!!

Yep, I now really want to buy a Playstation 2 sometime down the road. I’m still saving up for my 32 ” Flat screen plasma TV with HD, but after I buy a new TV then I will buy a PS2.

The only reason I am soon to be buying an old Playstation 2 system is so that I can play the earlier Metal Gear Solid games, the earlier Devil May Cry games (before I buy the 4th one), the earlier God Of War series, the earlier Tomb Raider games and the earlier Grand Theft Auto series.

Last Monday, when I was at the mall, I was browsing the Playstaion 2 games at Babbages in the Wilton Mall,  and they have all those games I listed above for the PS2.

A PS2 system is very cheap these days. I can easily get a used PS2 system for about $80.00 at Babbages also. After I buy a new TV, then I will definitely buy a PS2 system.

The reason I’m doing this is because I have a 40 GB PS3 system and that thing don’t allow you to play PS2 games but it allows you to play PS1 games. I want to play the earlier games of those series I listed above so I can keep up with the storylines of those games to see what I missed. Now that you think about it. I think this is why game companies release the latest sequels for the Ps3 only so people can buy a Ps2 for the earlier games, it’s just their way of getting more money from their gamers.
