Sonic the Hedgehog’s movie look getting a makeover

Sonic the Hedgehog is to get a redesign for his Hollywood movie, director Jeff Fowler has said following reactions this week to the first trailer. Seems he and Paramount have made the terrible mistake of listening to the Internet. Oh sure, I was there, slapping out cyberposts about my FASCINATION with the sapphire snuffler's horrifying human teeth but what anthropomorphic animal isn't eerie? Aren't all…

Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals his horrible human teeth

I was unprepared for Sonic the Hedgehog to have human teeth. Seeing as chilli dogs are his favourite food yet he eats them without soaking the bun in milk, I suppose I knew that Sonic wouldn't have the mouth and teeth of a real hedgehog in our world. I was still not ready for human teeth and weird lips. The first trailer for the live-action…

Steam stepping back from selling films

Steam's experiment in selling plain ol' non-games-related films, shows, and videos is ending, as Valve say they're refocusing on, y'know, stuff to do with video games. Which is no surprise, because games are why people use Steam. They've removed the 'Video' section from the Steam Store menu and plan to stop selling a number of non-games vids, though folks who bought them will still be…

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son will be a VR adventure game sequel to the movie

Ah, here we are doing the same thing over again – and yet, this one is different. Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is breaking the loop of movie sequels sticking to the same media format and will instead be a virtual reality adventure game. You can see what’s old and what’s new, plus some cute little rodent friends, in the trailer.

Duncan Jones is making a Rogue Trooper movie

Here's a surprisingly fine thing on an otherwise somewhat bleak Sunday: Duncan Jones (director of Moon) is making a Rogue Trooper movie. What's a rogue trooper, you ask? I mean, it's all in the name. He's gone rogue. He's a trooper. He's blue and all of his dead friends live inside of his equipment and he does battle on a ravaged planet called Nu-Earth where…

To The Moon becoming an animated movie

Kan Gao's tearjerker To The Moon, a game which affected our John so much that he still daren't open the curtains on clear nights lest he be swept away in a torrent of his own tears, is becoming a full-length animated movie. It's the story of doctors travelling through the memories of a dying man (with the aid of a fancy machine), seeing his life…

Steam & GoG Do Movies: Devolver’s Motivational Growth

Do I want movies on Steam? Not really, given how much of a labyrinth it already is for games alone. On the other hand, my intrinsic inertia makes the idea of everything under one icon vaguely appealing. It's unclear whether Valve even intends Steam to be a true one-stop multimedia shop, although the mind inevitably turns to how their upcoming SteamVR tech could be turned…

FMV Without The Clicking: GOG Starts Selling Movies

Look, all I want to know is: when can I exchange wizard hats for whisky? The few video game digital distributors that seem to have survived the tensies in decent shape are all moving towards selling digital movies and music and software and all that, but when will they get serious and go physical too? When will they sell groceries? When will Steam let me…

Deus Ex 3’s Producer On Hollywood, TV & Videogames

Following his exploration of that murky world of game-to-film adaptations, movie brat David Valjalo finds himself in deep debate with Deus Ex overlord David Anfossi, talking cyberpunk, Sergio Leone and why the forthcoming Deus Ex film will break the trend and be one to watch.

How Hollywood Should Adapt Videogames

Insatiable film fiend David Valjalo stops by to offer his musings on adapting the unadaptables - how Hollywood has its work cut out for it, what we can read into the studios and production houses attached to silver screen versions of Deus Ex, Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed, formalist vs realist styles, the need to make 20-hour, splintered narratives conform to the three-act structure, why…

WoW Loses Movie Director, Turns Players Into Mounts

These are, I must regrettably inform you, two stories related to World of Warcraft - not two stories related to one another. I apologize for dashing your dreams of Blizzard angrily stirring from its mountain lair and - blind with rage over losing Spider-Man and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi - hurling a spell bolt from on high that immediately transforms its playerbase into horses.…
