Twin Peaks as a 1980s style video game

Activision wants to start its own movie company to bring its games to the big screen

Marvel, with a lot of help from Disney, has built itself a mighty movie empire from its comic books, one that may just keep going and going and going forever. DC and WB are trying to do the same, and now Activision, with its huge stable of popular and iconic video game titles wants some of that movie/video game/action figure action. Just because video game movie adaptations have mostly flopped doesn’t mean they always will. Just look at the brief live action superhero boom of the 1970s— they tried, most TV and movie adaptations from that time sucked, but eventually, it worked out. And with titles like Call of Duty, Warcraft, Starcraft, Skylanders, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Guitar Hero and pages more, Activision’s decades of development and acquisitions has made it a powerhouse of familiar titles with storylines that can possibly be milked for a long, long time, just has Marvel has discovered it can do.

Shit gets all kinds of demonic orc crazy in this great new cinematic from the upcoming WoW expansion, Warlords of Draenor

Blizzard will in fact be adding a Robin Williams-like NPC into World of Warcraft

In addition to being one of the most brilliant comedians and actors ever in the history of film, Robin Williams was also an avid gamer— his oldest daughter Zelda was named for the princess in the Legend of Zelda games. In addition to exploring Hyrule, Williams was also a huge fan of Warcraft and World of Warcraft, having several characters on the Mannoroth server, where by his own admission, was “kind of a troll” at times. And so, after a player petition to honor Robin Williams in WoW with his own NPC, Blizzard quickly responded that it’s in the works, tweeting yesterday that they’ll “see you in-game”. Where this NPC will be or what he will look like or what kind of quips he might emote are unknown right now, but even the Horde will miss him dearly.

Legendary game developer Sierra back from the dead, announces new Geometry Wars and Kings Quest games

image

In the early days of PC gaming, Sierra was where it was at. Creators of one great, funny and engaging point and click adventure after another, from King’s Quest to Police Quest to Space Quest, when a Sierra game came out, just as with Lucasarts, you took your fist full of dollar bills down to the store and got it. Eventually, Sierra went more into the publishing side of things, making bank from games like You Don’t Know Jack, Half Life and Crash Bandicoot. And then they disappeared. But today at Gamescon in Germany, Sierra announced that it already has two games in the works— Geometry Wars 3 and a BRAND NEW KINGS QUEST GAME.
