Alien vs Predator Football Video Game

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was almost an Alien vs Predator football video game set in the distant future. Find out all about it below. Read More »

Harry Potter Wizards Unite Game

The mobile game Pokémon Go reignited the spark for capturing weird little monsters and making them fight each other. But Pokémon as a property isn’t for everyone. That’s why game developer Niantic Inc. is teaming up with Warner Bros. Games to bring a similar style of game play to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a forthcoming augmented reality game that we’ve highlighted before. But official details on the gameplay haven’t been available until today. Thankfully, Niantic and WB have revealed what fans can expect from this foray into the magical world, and it will combine content and characters from both the original Harry Potter franchise and the new Fantastic Beasts series.

Groundhog Day VR Video Game

“Okay, campers, rise and shine and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cold out there today! It’s cold out there everyday. What is this Miami Beach?”

Yesterday was Groundhog Day, and hopefully you were one of the many who partook in the annual tradition of watching the classic holiday comedy directed by the late Harold Ramis. The movie starring Bill Murray is the pinnacle of stories featuring a character stuck in a time loop, and now it’s getting a sequel.

However, don’t be so fast to groan and roll your eyes. This isn’t a sequel produced by Hollywood trying to recapture the magic of the original. Instead, this is an intriguing twist on the concept in the form of a Groundhog Day VR video game. Like weatherman Phil Connors, the player relives the same day over and over again until they figure out how to break the time loop. Read More »

black mirror bandersnatch game

Black Mirror is taking its interactive feature-length special to a whole other level. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is making headlines for its unique choose-your-own-adventure format, forcing its viewers to make choices that will send them hurtling down a different rabbit hole every time.

It’s an experience not unlike a video game, which is fitting since the premise of Bandersnatch centers around a programmer attempting to adapt a fantasy novel into a game. With Black Mirror: Bandersnatch set in the ’80s and chock-full by video game references, Netflix has upped the immersive experience by making available one of the games featured in the film — with a twist.
