With a crappy director, terrible script, and B-list actors, of course.

You can add Halo and Metal Gear Solid to the list of upcoming video game movies that will undoubtedly suck.

And since I can never post without a little bit of random news. Here's some more Wii rumors. Speculate away!

*Preorders already being taken for hardware and software? Could this hint at pricing and release dates?
http://revolution.ign.com/articles/709/709636p1.html

*New Satoru Iwata interview. Lot's of fun info and sneaky answers, a really good read
http://biz.gamedaily.com/industry/fe...?id=12748&rp=1

Just look at the history of Nintendo consoles for the price? Could the $200 price point be a reality?

Surely your overlooking such great video game to movie translations as Super Mario Brothers and Street Fighter

I've just been playing the demo for Rise of Legends and I am really enjoying the steampunk elements, first decent fix since Arcanum.

I hope the Wii comes out in October, because I'm planning on getting it for my son for Christmas. I hoping the $200.00 price tag is reality.

I'm afraid you are right. Why does Hollywood have to do this. Can't they come up with original ideas for movies anymore? T.V. shows and games into movies equals disaster.

Are there any Final Fantasy games that aren't turn based?

There are actually 2 Final Fantasy games that I own which stray away from the typical JRPG approach of turn-based action.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicals (GC) which is a real-time action rpg
http://media.cube.ign.com/media/479/479090/vids_1.html

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA) which is a turn-based strategy game
http://media.gameboy.ign.com/media/4...16/vids_1.html

I enjoyed both, but you should check out some of the videos in the links to see if you would like those type of gameplay elements. Other than the 2 I have played?

Final Fantasy VII: Dirge Of Cerberus (PS2) which looks to be a third-person shooter ala Resident Evil
http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/693/693672/vids_1.html

For anyone who hates the big 3 gaming companies out right now, here's a handheld for all you non-conformists! Lol

The Warcraft storyline has been ongoing since 1994..it is ready-made for a film if it is done right, but they will have to get someone to direct that has some ability and passion for the material, and to create a different tone to the recent LOTR films to avoid copycat comparisons..I really hope they avoid a cheapo approach though, since I love the series.

For Azeroth!



Seriously though, the original story of orcs coming through a portal and invading a medievil kingdom would work great on film.

Most media people think they're doing the public a service by catering everything to sixth graders.

Of course, for all of us with an intellect of a seventh grader or higher, we're out of luck.

Mortal Kombat=Cinema Gold

And as always, another link. This one isn't newsworthy, but I thought it was a cool video to watch. This is how they play Dominos in Oblivion!
