BLU-RAY NEWS: The Watchmen Director’s Cut Blu-ray will feature Full Watchmen Game!

Watchmen Blu-ray Box Art

I finally sat down, played and beat the Watchmen: The End Is Nigh, video game this weekend. So it was pretty cool to see that they are making a sequel to the game, not only that but the full game Part 1 and 2 will be included in the upcoming Director’s Cut version of The Watchmen Blu-ray release and playable on the PS3. How sweet a package is this shaping up to be? You get the Director’s Cut of the film which includes 25 extra minutes, the full Watchmen Game Experience and Digital Copy! All they need to do is somehow squeeze in the Black Freighter and the bad Motion Comic and that would be quite a Blu-ray package. The game will also be included on the DVD version as well, so I’m assuming that version will be playable on the 360.  Other than being way too dark (fixed once I increased the brightness level) and repetitive, the game is good mindless fun with some really neat beat downs. The Blu-ray and DVD Director’s Cut will hit the streets in July.

MOVIE GAME NEWS: Ghostbusters Game Coming in June, Now a PS3 Exclusive!

Ghostbusters Video Game

This is old news, but I wanted to give a quick update that the Ghostbusters Game is still on track to hit the streets this June with a twist. It went from being a multiplatform game to being a Playstation 3 and Playstation 2 timed exclusive. Meaning, it’ll take a few months before we’ll see the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii versions. The latest screens and trailer for the game is looking really good. I think the game industry is finally starting to get a handle on the whole movie based games thing.

MOVIE NEWS: Wheelman Movie is a Go!

Wheelman Movie Now Official

In a move that surprises no one, Vin Diesel is going to team up with John Singleton to bring Midway Games, Wheelman franchise to the big screen.  For some reason I’m thinking this is old news, I could have sworn they were making this a few years go and then canceled it. But I’m probably wrong.  I’ve met John Singleton a couple of times and he has become an ahole, but he is talented. I run hot and cold on Diesel on the one hand I can’t stand him as an actor but he always picks really good genre material.  I don’t know how much Midway’s financial problems will affect this project but it’ll be interesting to follow.

MOVIE NEWS: The Movie Games of Summer

Usually movie games suck and are horribly generic. But lately they have been getting better and better, while still remaining remarkably generic and basically nothing more than Final Fight style side scrolling beat em ups. The difference now is Hollywood seeing the money that can be made in games are working closer with the game industry. We’re still getting mediocre results, but at least they are playable and somewhat fun. I’m getting ready to launch a new blog dedicated to Movie, Superhero and Cinematic games, as a primer to the site I thought it would be fun to take a look at a couple of the hot upcoming movie games we’ll all be playing this summer.

Batman Arkham Aslyam

While not technically a movie game, Batman Arkham Asylum is based on a movie franchise and is the game that should have come out when The Dark Knight hit last year to capitalize on the movie’s release, but it got delayed. Which is a good thing, this game is meant to be it’s own stand alone thing. In it you get to Face off against Gotham¿s greatest villains including The Joker, HARLEY QUINN, VICTOR ZSASZ and KILLER CROC. Become the Invisible Predatotm with Batman’s takedowns and unique vantage point system to move without being seen or utilize the unique FreeFlowtm combat system to chain together unlimited combos and battle with huge groups of The Joker’s henchmen. Choose multiple takedown methods, including swooping from the sky and smashing through walls, and use the predator camera get a closer look at the action. Explore every inch of Arkham Asylum and roam freely on the infamous island, presented for the first time ever in its gritty and realistic. Experience what it’s like to be BATMAN using BATARANGS, explosive gel aerosol, The Batclaw, sonar resonator and the line launcher

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

I’m running hot and cold on the movie, last week I had no excitement for it, but then they released that amazing trailer at the end of the week, now my heart’s all aflutter again over Potter. I think I’m going HBP for a 3rd time, maybe I’ve been too harsh. I don’t know anything about the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince other than it was scheduled to come out last November, but got pushed back at the last minute when Warner Brothers changed the release date of the movie to June of this year. So I’m assuming the game has been ready for some time, it is interesting that EA really hasn’t been promoting this title and keeping mum. I thought all of the previous HP Games pretty much sucked but I’m really hoping EA does something different and new here. Streets June 30th.

GAME PREVIEW: James Bond and the Quantum of Solace

Have I said how much I despise the title of the new James Bond movie? With that said Activision’s new James Bond game is looking pretty tasty. The official game website is an example of why Flash sucks. It’s slow and busy as heck. Absolutely hate it, but it does have all the community bells and whistles you’d expect. If you want to be frustrated, Check it out.

VIDEO GAME RELEASES: Big week for new games

After a couple of painfully slow weeks, we have a nice group of strong, diverse titles.  Starting with a trio of movie games Lego Indiana Jones, The Bourne Conspiracy and The Incredible Hulk.  Then we have a little game called Ninja Gaiden II – I personally could never get into Ninja Gaiden the puzzles were too obtuse and the best part is all four titles are available on both PS3 and 360.  These days I’m desperate to have something to play on my PS3 so I may try and get these for that system. Who am I kidding? I’ll be picking up all the 360 versions. I finally gave up on Gamefly’s incredibly lousy East Coast service, so I’m going to have to actually buy all of these games.
