From K Games comes the trailer for The Darkness II, coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 7 in North America and February 10 internationally. I didn’t play the first Darkness and probably wont play this one either but it does look interesting. A word of warning though, the trailer is all cgi cinematics so we don’t really know what the game play will look like. We’ll have to wait and see actual game play when we get a real trailer closer to release date.
Based on the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II delivers a brutal and personal narrative as gamers take control of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as the Darkness.
The Darkness II is the sequel to the million unit-selling 2007 title, The Darkness, and brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and maintains the stylistic violence visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique, true to its comic book origins.
Sometimes I think this guy gets entirely too much hate for what he does. Then sometimes I totally think he deserves it. I’m a bit torn about this trailer. It’s got some very cool music and the cinematography isn’t bad. Even the zombie makeup is pretty original and interesting but then he goes and throws some of the worst special effect shots that I’ve ever seen in a trailer out there. It’s based on a video game and just on his track record with video game adaptations I’m pretty sure this is gonna be an awful movie.
It’s being called by some the most accurate depiction of modern warfare ever in a video game and from watching this trailer it certainly looks like it’s living up to the hype. Battlefield 3 looks to bring an insane amount of varied game play to your pc or console on October 25th as you work a captured marine in some middle east hell hole before his time runs out.
Lionsgate has acquired movie rights to the smash hit, Dead Island, the Deep Silver video game about vacationers on an island paradise overrun by zombies. Story first reported by Deadline.
Last February, Deep Silver’s trailer for Dead Island tore through the video game industry like wildfire. The buzz has culminated into making Dead Island one of the most anticipated video games of 2011. The trailer actually had a cinematic quality to it and many theorized that the game would make a great movie before any details were known about the game. Since it’s release, the game has sold 2 million copies. There was some controversy as to who owned the rights to the film but that all appears to have been worked out.
Last week we posted the first trailer for Rockstar Games Max Payne 3 and today we’re back with more as we present to you Max Payne 3 pop up edition. Check out the video and as you watch you’ll get lots of info and back story on the game with clickable links to more info.
It’s been 9 years since the last Max Payne and by the looks of the trailer it’s been a rough go for Max. While hiding out in some South American hell hole he’s sucked back into some crime situation or other. It looks like they’ve gone away from the noire style of original game into a more modern Drakes Fortune style of storytelling. The bullet time is still there but the game does have a very different feel. Look for it in March of 2012.
Every since the first trailer for this game hit early this year the anticipation has been growing. FPS zombie shooters are huge and this looks to take it to the next level. Here’s the final trailer to convince you that this is a must by when it hits stores September 6, 2011.
The first trailer featuring The Riddler from Batman: Arkham City has been released, giving us more ideas on how the villain will appear in the upcoming video game. Hit the jump to check it out!
The story for Arkham City takes place one year after the events of Arkham Asylum. Quincy Sharp, former warden of Arkham Asylum, has taken credit for stopping the Joker, and used that notoriety to become mayor of Gotham City. As neither Arkham nor Blackgate Prison are in any condition to hold inmates, Sharp buys out a large section of Gotham’s slums and arms the perimeter with private military contractors from a group called Tyger in order to create “Arkham City”. The prisoners are brought into Arkham City and are given free rein, as long as they do not attempt escape. To oversee the city, Sharp uses psychiatrist Hugo Strange who appears to have his own secret agenda for the city. Batman maintains a vigil over the city, worried that the situation may get out of hand. Part of the setup for “Arkham City” was contained in plans in a hidden room in Sharp’s office in Arkham Asylum.

First game footage revealed for the Nintendo 3DS version of Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, and it actually looks fun!
I haven’t been able to find this video on the site, so I thought I would post it for our CBM and video game fans. The Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters video game is making its way to almost every gaming platform known to man, and I found this video yesterday that highlights the Nintendo 3DS version of the game. While not as beefy as the next-gen consoles, the portable version looks like it could be quite fun…
In Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, players will fill the role of gifted pilot Hal Jordan, the first human Green Lantern, and create an arsenal of ring constructs and take flight in outer space and beyond to restore intergalactic order. Players will use the Power Ring to build an array of weapons from green energy to defeat the Manhunters
Apparently JJ Abrams is the most innovative marketing genius of his generation because he has now come up with a whole new way to market his movies. For his upcoming Super 8 film he has teamed with the creators of Portal 2 to create an interactive game level where you can actually walk around and explore the train that wrecks in the trailer for their movie. Very interesting stuff with lots of little tidbits of information just waiting to be explored… If you drop $60 bucks for Portal 2. Or you can watch it here…
In this recent note from Evil Avatar Forum its said that Ubisoft has been doing research for possibles Assassin’s Creed and Ghost Recon movies. Hit the jump to find out!
This recent post on the Evil Avatar Forum indicates what seems to be a Ubisoft research for a possible Assassin’s Creed movie and also a Ghost Recon movie!
A reader from Evil Avatar just sent me a survey he received, indicating that Ubisoft may be considering creating a movie based on the Ghost Recon and Assassin’s Creed licenses. The survey asks several questions regarding viewing habits of movies, what your favorite movies, actors and directors are, then goes into a whole piece regarding movies based on video games.
Then the survey gets more specific, asking questions regarding what the submitter would want out of a movie based upon Ghost Recon, specifically where the movie would fall in line of the overall Ghost Recon timeline and which special Recon teams would be the focus.
Following the Ghost Recon section, the survey asks a similar question regarding what the submitter would want to see out of an Assassin’s Creed movie, including exploring Ezio and Subject 16 further, as well as possibly focusing on a new assassin.
The latest UK edition of the Official Playstation Magazine seemingly reveals that the studio behind the Spider-Man series of games are working on one for X-Men: First Class! Check it out…
While reading an article in the latest issue of the UK edition of OPM (Official Playstation Magazine) about Activision’s decision to cancel planned releases of future Guitar Hero titles and True Crime: Hong Kong.
When they went on to talk about the franchises that the company would now be focusing on, I was more than a little surprised to come across the following:
“Activision has also been keen to point to its other properties like, erm, X-Men: First Class, Spider-Man and Transformers 3.”
X-Men: First Class!?! Well, that’s the first I’ve heard about them planning a video game adaptation of the upcoming prequel! It’s not hard to believe that they’re holding off on revealing the game when the adaptations for Thor and Green Lantern (both out at around the same time) have so far only provided us with a handful of screenshots and a couple of brief trailers.
I’m not sure about you guys, but I for one would love to play as Magneto, Beast and a few of the other character being introduced in the movie! With production on the movie being fairly rushed, it’s also a possibility that the game will be released alongside the DVD and Blu-Ray.
Set in 2014 along the Iraq-Iran border, Fault Line Episode 1: Bad Part of Town follows a marine Staff Sergeant as he deploys with his four-man squad. Another crew has gone missing while on the hunt for a chemical weapons site, and Staff Sergeant Blackburn
