Video Game Review: DC Universe Online

Friday, January 28th, 2011

They got dollar signs in their eyes. Suddenly the decent video game became a horrible MMO with recurring fees. Add in a couple of really cool cut scenes that can be used for advertising, and you have the current incarnation that is DC Universe Online. There is a saying that you never buy the videogame of a movie based on a comic book, with good reason. Expand that saying to also include the MMO of comic books too.

Mortal Kombat – backstory rebirth in live-action

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Back on August 16, 2010 we presented a video clip that millions have since seen. Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. A revisioning of the Mortal Kombat film saga. A revision that happily is far superior to all its predecessors, combined. At the time we said that should not be the last of the Rebirth concept – and [...]

Shock and awe – Airbender and Prince of Persia whitewashed
