Kingdom Hearts honors 90 years of Mickey Mouse with trailer

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 4 hours, 7 mins ago

Comic-Con 2018 - The poster boy for The Walt Disney Company is no doubt Mickey Mouse, the character was created back in 1928 and now Square Enix and Disney are celebrating his 90th birthday with a brand new trailer.

 

 

Mickey Mouse began his long career in Plane Crazy, a short film that later went onto becoming Steamboat Willie. Mickey went onto create numerous other movies and then found himself being involved within the Kingdom Hearts series. His first appearance in the series started as a ship's hand to Pete in the Timeless River, exactly like Steamboat Willie.

 

Mickey later went onto become a student under Yen Sid, a powerful sorcerer and teacher. Yen Sid was actually modeled on Walt Disney himself, the animators took everything Disney had, right down to signature facial features that are recognizable today. The character was designed to pay tribute Walt Disney, which is why Yen Sid is 'Disney' spelled backwards. All of Walt Disney's legacy came from one character Mickey Mouse, the years of animated film success all stems from the structure that Mickey Mouse provided, as Walt Disney said "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse."

Kong: Skull Island director discusses possible Zelda movie

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 6 hours, 7 mins ago

Comic-Con 2018 - The director behind Kong: Skull Island and the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, Jordan Vogt-Roberts has sat down with IGN at Comic-Con 2018. The director discussed the possibility of a Zelda movie.

 

kong-skull-island-director-discusses-possible-zelda-movie_01

 

Vogt-Roberts gives some details to what he would be trying to remember if he was given the opportunity of directing a Zelda movie. Vogt-Roberts says "The thing about Zelda is Zelda is not Lord of the Rings, right? You cannot forget how quirky and bizarre Zelda is." He continues this by saying that he would think that a middle ground between the traditional and new Zelda would have to be found in some degree, "I think you need to find a way to actually fuse the traditional Zelda and the very new Zelda."

 

The director goes into more depth about how he would go about doing this, he says combing "the pure just sort of fantasy of The Ocarina of Time and The Link to the Past" with the "newer pseudo-tech stuff." Vogt-Roberts further clarifies that this would have to be done in a underwhelming manor, meaning that both contrasting time-lines of Zelda would have to be carefully placed together to create a cohesive story, that would satisfy both newer players to Zelda and veteran players. Finalizing what Vogt-Roberts told IGN, he also believes that if he was to direct the movie that "I actually fully think Link should not speak the entire film. I would do a film where he's a silent protagonist."

Blizzard teams with Hasbro for Overwatch Nerf toy guns

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 58 mins ago

Blizzard knows how to perfectly milk their franchises, with the developer teaming with Hasbro on some awesome Overwatch Nerf guns.

 

blizzard-teams-hasbro-overwatch-nerf-toy-guns_03

 

The first out of the gate will be Reaper's iconic, and if you play Overwatch, super-annoying shotgun. The Nerf gun will sport 8 of Nerf's own Rival rounds, with a ready indicator and safety lock for style. Hasbro and Blizzard haven't talked pricing yet, but I'm sure it's not going to come cheap.

 

I don't know if it's just me... but Reaper has two shotguns, so it would be disappointing to buy these new Nerf guns out of a pair. What I'd love to see are the guns from other infamous Overwatch characters like D.Va, Soldier 76, and many others. It would be awesome to have a collection of them, including Mei's freezing blaster for example, or even Mercy's pistol.

 

There's no idea on pricing just yet, but they have promised the Nerf Rival Overwatch Reaper Wight Edition (yeah, that's the real name of it) will be released in 2019.

Ion Maiden delayed to 2019

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 12 hours, 53 mins ago

Ion Maiden has been delayed to 2019, but developer Voidpoint plans on rolling out a multiplayer beta to keep early access owners busy.

 

 

Back in 2017 we reported that 3D Realms was making a new game built on Duke Nukem's BUILD engine. The game turned out to be Ion Maiden, a new FPS that taps the classic FPS of 90's yore while delving into the beloved old-school look.

 

Originally due out this year, the devs at Voidpoint have delayed Ion Maiden to Q1 2019, likely to ensure polish and a rich slate of features. Alongside the push-back the devs confirmed Ion Maiden is getting "fast-paced" multiplayer action upon release (any retro-inspired shooter should have multiplayer in my opinion). Gamers who paid Ion Maiden's $19.99 early access price will get to beta test the multiplayer modes and provide valuable feedback to the devs.

Hello Games on No Man's Sky launch: we shared too much info

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 15 hours, 38 mins ago

Now that No Man's Sky is getting a massive new game-changing update, Hello Games' Sean Murray reflects on the game's original launch and how it affected the studio and helped shape the sci-fi game's future.

Thanks to No Man's Sky's new NEXT update the game is finally getting features that were promised nearly two years ago. Hello Games and Sean Murray caught lots of flak for many blatant untruths about the game when it released in 2016--namely the promise of multiplayer--and now the developer breaks his silence to talk about the situation. Why did he bend the truth? How was No Man's Sky affected by the controversy? Why were the features missing? Ultimately it came down to one thing: too much work and too little time.

 

In a recent interview with Waypoint, Murray says that one big reason the game was in hot water is that he shared too much information with the press. "So I look back on the press and interviews and stuff we shared way too much information. We shared it too early. We didn't need to do that," he said.

Shazam's first trailer injects fun, and color into the DCEU

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 1 day, 6 hours ago

Comic-Con 2018 - DC had a strong presence at Comic-Con this year, with trailers to both Aquaman and Shazam debuting during the show. Shazam's trailer is filled with fun, check it out below:

 

 

Zachary Levi of Chuck fame (at least for me) leads Shazam, which looks like a huge departure to the doom and gloom of the current flock of DCEU movies. If you don't know about Shazam, it starts off with Billy Batson, a kid who has been introduced to a new foster family, and a new school. Daunting for anyone, right?

 

Well, after he fights off some of the bullies he gets on the trail and meets a wizard called Shazam. Shazam says to Billy that if he says his name, he'll receive superpowers. Nekminnut: Billy is in adult form as Shazam, played by Zachary Levi. As Shazam, he doesn't know what superpowers he has, so a bunch of fun experimenting begins. Zapping, flying, punching, stopping bullets, and all.

 

It looks like it could be fun, and I'll watch anything in the DCEU - more so with Zachary getting to play Shazam, we should expect some laughs. I love the nods to Superman and Batman in the first 30 seconds of the trailer... nice touch, DC.

DC unleashes first Aquaman trailer during SDCC 2018

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 1 day, 7 hours ago

Comic-Con 2018 - DC didn't have the biggest year last year with the how-the-hell-did-it-get-that-bad Justice League, but they could be back with Aquaman later this year, with the company releasing the first official trailer to the Jason Momoa led blockbuster.

 

 

The trailer gives us a good glimpse of what to expect: Aquaman's origin story from birth to hero, similar to what we saw with Snyder's reboot of Superman with Man of Steel. Nicole Kidman plays Aquaman's mother, Queen Atlanna, while Patrick Wilson plays his half-brother Orm, also known as the Ocean Master.

 

Kaan Guldur plays Arthur Curry as a youngster, eyeing off bullies when they're pushing him around in an aquarium of all places, with the sea life and some gigantic sharks taking his side.

 

The one thing I noticed is that Aquaman looks brighter and more colorful than previous DCEU entries like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Justice League. This is great... maybe we're finally seeing the change we need after the mess of Justice League.
