The Blair Witch Project will live on with a new Blair Witch game due out this summer. The first-person, story-driven psychological horror game is based on the horror hit, and takes place in 1996 – which conveniently sidesteps the two Blair Witch movie sequels. The storyline involves an ex-cop searching for a boy who went missing in the allegedly haunted woods surrounding Burkittsville. I’m guessing a certain witch may be involved in this disappearance.

A couple weeks ago, there were rumblings that Ghostbusters: The Video Game from 2009 would be getting a remastered re-released sometime this year in honor of the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters II, and the 10th anniversary of the game itself. Now that’s been confirmed with a full announcement trailer, showing off the revamped graphics that will now be in high-resolution. See how the Ghostbusters video game remastered looks below.

See you next year, Sonic. The Sonic the Hedgehog movie was supposed to speed into theaters this November – and then everyone saw the trailer. The reaction was overwhelmingly negative, with many wondering why the movie’s version of Sonic looked so terrible. Rather than shrug it off, the folks behind the film took the criticism to heart, and quickly announced they’d be redesigning the look of the character. That redesign is going to take a lot of work, which means there’s no way the film could keep its original release. As a result, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie release date has shifted to early next year.

Video game movies may have a bad track record in Hollywood, but that won’t stop the video game subsidiary of Sony from launching its very own production company, Playstation Productions, to adapt its extensive catalogue of beloved video games for the big and small screen.

Back in 2009, the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters was celebrated in a big way with the release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. At the time, the video game was a big deal because Atari was able to round up all of the original Ghostbusters cast members to reprise their roles. Basically, it was the only way we were getting a Ghostbusters 3.
Ultimately, the game wasn’t exactly a home run since the story was somewhat mediocre and the game’s ending didn’t really deliver anything all that thrilling. But for Ghostbusters fans, with all the wisecracking from almost all the movie’s original cast and the ability to become one of the Ghostbusters in a video game for the then-current generation of video games was still pretty cool. But now fans may have an opportunity to give it another chance since it would appear that a remastered re-release of the game is coming soon. Read More »

So far the video game offerings in the Star Wars universe since Disney bought Lucasfilm have left a lot to be desired. While Star Wars Battlefront was fun for a little while, there’s no real depth to the game and it’s distinctly missing what makes an adventure in a galaxy far, far away so exciting. Hopefully Electronic Arts can change that with a new Jedi fantasy adventure game.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is about a Jedi padawan trying to survive after Order 66 resulted in almost all the Jedi in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. As the creators of the game touted during the Star Wars Celebration, this is entirely a Jedi story. There’s no multiplayer and no micro-transactions. But there is a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order trailer that shows off our first glimpse at the video game, including the new lead Jedi character, an intimidating new Inquisitor, a cute new droid, an intriguing new lightsaber, and more.
Watch the trailer below, and keep reading for some other details revealed during the game’s Star Wars Celebration panel. Read More »
