ATTENTION Hollywood: Why Are There No Good Video Game-Based Movies?

Why hasn’t anyone made a good movie out of a game in twenty years of trying? Adapting a video game should be easier than making a book into a film. Max Payne’s film noir-turned-gameand Silent Hill’s psychological horror are built for movie adaptations. Adapting a novel means cutting a lot of story and character development, but like with comic books—which make great movies already—the cutting is somewhat easier with a game.

Hell No, Videogames can’t make me be a Racist or a Sexist!
Though I think videogames do more good than bad, they have the potential to encourage negative stereotypes, and some games definitely do. My review of Grand Theft Auto V called it a flawed masterpiece, the flaw being the dull, stupid SexistBlogbsexism and cynicism weighing down the many, many things the game does brilliantly. There are also blatantly racist games like Call of Juarez: The Cartel, whose “racial stereotyping” was similarly cited by Gamespot as both “boring and … obnoxious” and whose tone-deaf treatment of race and even sex slavery earned it the #1 spot on this Top 10 List of racist games.

Amazon Fire TV: Gaming Good Enough for Non Xbox or Playstation Owners?When Amazon released the Amazon Fire TV streaming video set-top box, they added a twist by including Android gaming with an optional $40 Fire Game Controller. Can the Fire TV compete with the big gaming consoles like the Xbox or Playstation? In a word, no! But the Fire TV is still good enough for those who don’t want to, or can’t afford to, pay hundreds of dollars for a game system. Fire TV owners get some nice entertainment options and most gamers will enjoy the variety and even quality of games thanks to hardware comparable to a high-end Android phone or tablet, but with a dedicated game controller.Read More - http://ow.ly/vLDZG

Twitch Is Turning Into The Netflix Of Spectator GamingBy all accounts, the world’s largest video network for gamers—and the lucrative arena of competitive gaming that it powers—is on a path to colossal growth.Twitch, a social platform where users can watch, play, record and livecast gameplay, has historically been more associated with PC gaming due to the relatively closed ecosystems of consoles like the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. But in the brave new era of console gaming, that’s all changed—and it could spell big things (and bigger money) for the emerging world of video games as spectator sport.Read More - http://ow.ly/voxUf

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2: Revelations DLC Review Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was a bit of a late bloomer. Not much happened in the first half of the game, and even in the latter half, the game only came into its own once there was more combat and less exploration. The story took some interesting turns by the end of the game too. And of course, good old Alucard showed up. Unfortunately, you couldn’t play as Alucard in Lords of Shadow 2, but his appearance drove the story into an exciting territory. However, you couldn’t shake the feeling that something was missing with the way his character was introduced into Revelations DLC Reviewthe plot. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 – Revelations, tries to fill in the blanks here.
