jumanji the video game

Jumanji fans can now experience for themselves the epic adventure of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — though hopefully without the whole “being sucked into the game” quirk. Jumanji: The Video Game will take players swinging through the jungle in search for the Jewels of Jumanji ahead of the upcoming release of the yet-untitled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie sequel.

A new trailer has arrived for a LTM (limited time mode) in the game which features the character from the Keanu Reeves-starring action movies, and after some early rumors suggested he was on the way, players better watch their backs, because Baba Yaga is officially here.

Netflix E3

E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, is an industry trade show devoted to video games, so it’s common to see companies like Sony and Microsoft promoting their upcoming games every year. But a new player is about to enter the fray: Netflix is attending the convention this year, and the streaming service plans to adapt some of its popular television shows into video games.

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to sit down with Star Wars: Vader Immortal director Ben Snow, writer David Goyer, and executive producer Mark S. Miller to discuss their first big leap into telling immersive Star Wars stories in your home via virtual reality.

Immortal tells the story of a smuggler who is called to Mustafar, the volcanic world that Darth Vader calls home. What the dark Sith lord has planned for him, and what he is secretly working on in the dungeons of this castle, could forever change Star Wars canon.

After experiencing Star Wars: Vader Immortal for myself, I sat down to talk about the experience and how it was created.

Gollum video game

From what we can tell, Amazon’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings prequel television show will be set hundreds of years before the hobbit Smeagol discovered Sauron’s One Ring and began his tragic transformation into the miserable creature known as Gollum, but that character is about to get the spotlight in a new Gollum video game. German video game developer Daedalic Entertainment announced a new game called The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which will be a prequel set years before Gollum loses his precious to Bilbo Baggins in a dark cave.

Neill Blomkamp Anthem

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp hasn’t directed a feature film since 2015’s Chappie, but he’s since become a prolific director of short films, helming ten of them in the past four years at his company, Oats Studios. Now he’s teamed up with EA for his latest short called Conviction, which is a live-action prequel to BioWare’s highly-anticipated upcoming video game Anthem.

Check out Blomkamp’s latest short film below, which continues to prove that short films are where he can truly thrive as a creative storyteller. Read More »

kingdom hearts plot

It’s been 13 years since Kingdom Hearts 2 came out, which means you’re going to need to do more than blow on a dusty cartridge to revive those memories of the video game franchise. Kingdom Hearts 3 drops you right in the middle of 10 years worth of story which, somewhat counterintuitively, has been going strong in other spin-off games in that long absence. In-between Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3, there were five (!) games that were released on the Playstation Portable, Nintendo 3DS, PC, and mobile phones, each of them essential to the increasingly convoluted Kingdom Hearts plot line.

Sound daunting? Don’t worry I’ve got you covered. I’m here to try to condense 10 years worth of story for you — 17 years if you’re totally new. Because everyone deserves to not be horribly confused about this inexplicable combination of Japanese RPG and Disney.

Alien Blackout trailer

By the time Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley wakes up at the beginning of James Cameron’s Aliens, she’s been in cryo-sleep for 57 years. A lot can happen in nearly six decades, and the franchise has begun to explore that era in the form of video games. 2014’s Alien: Isolation was a popular survival horror game that featured Ripley’s daughter Amanda, and as previously teased, that character is returning in a new game called Alien: Blackout – and the first trailer is here.

The bad news? Whereas the well-reviewed Isolation was a console game, Blackout will be available on mobile devices. So get ready to look foolish screaming on the subway during a jump-scare, because a Xenomorph is going to be crawling around on your phone. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

This is it, everyone. The wait is finally over. How do we know? The final Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer is out, putting an end to the constant stream of trailers (but no release date) that Square Enix has been dropping for the past five years.

We’re a little more than a month out from the release of the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3 and to celebrate that momentous occasion, Square Enix has debuted the most cameo and spoiler-filled trailer yet. Sora tangles with some dastardly foes, both familiar and unfamiliar (unless you’ve been playing the spin-off games), in the latest Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer while taking some time out of his world-saving mission to do the dance from Tangled. Plus the new Utada Hikaru and Skrillex theme song makes its debut, and its way better than you’d expect.
