Super-Villains Play A Big Role in Injustice 2

The new trailer for Injustice 2 really does the video game, well, a lot of justice. Fans of D.C. Comics are going to really love this game. The game is filled with many top heroes and villains from current movie and television projects featuring D.C. characters.

 

Cool heroes such as Green Lantern and Wonder Woman are present, but it is the villains who really steal the spotlight in the trailer.

 

Back in the 1970’s, D.C. Comics gave The Joker his own comic book. While the writing was solid, the book didn’t sell. Comic book fans simply were not ready to accept a book with a villain featured so prominently. All that has changed now that fans of comic books and related movies and video games find many villainous characters intriguing. Adding more depth to various classic villains has paid off.

 

And then there is another factor in the mix. Some video game players really love being villains themselves. Anyone who really cheers for the bad guys has a lot to cheer about after checking out this trailer.

 

Gorilla Grodd opens up the trailer and he thrashes both The Green Lantern and The Flash. Grodd was a character unknown to the mainstream for years. The brilliant villain was made famous to large audiences on The Flash TV show. His presence on the video game should really move sales. Grodd is an awesome bad guy.

 

The same can be said of the menacing Bane, a character that debuted in one of the all-time most famous Batman story arcs in The Dark Knight’s history. Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the powerful anarchist in The Dark Knight Rises absolutely cemented Bane’s pop culture legacy. Bane truly looks incredibly tough in the trailer for Injustice 2. The character loses none of his trademark menaces.

 

Villains really do need to be formidable in order to be successful with fans. Incredibly powerful villains are not pushovers. While heroes always win out in the comics and the movies, such may not be the case in a video game. Players really need to perform at their best in order to win. Beating the bad guys of Injustice 2 absolutely won’t be easy.

 

Nintendo Released A New Patch For Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

Nintendo just launched the 1.1.1 patch for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and although the company did not describe exactly what the brand-new functions are, it is known that it intends to enhance the game’s frame rate.

 

Through the Nintendo site, it is stated that the patch includes settings for a more pleasurable gaming experience. And although that doesn’t mean anything by itself, gamers have been reporting that the update enhances the frame rate per second in various locations.

 

It is suggested to download the update as quickly as possible, as it will enhance the experience and bring more enjoyment out of the online functions of Breath of the Wild. The download will start instantly if your console is online.

 

Previously, Nintendo announced the end of production of the Wii U, due to poor sales of the system and the arrival of the new Nintendo Switch. In spite of this, the company launched The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for both systems. This game caused an increase in sales to the Wii U system, as it is stated by Eric Bright, director of GameStop.

 

The executive commented that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild not only indicated an excellent launch for Switch, it also assisted to renew pre-owned Wii U sales. In that regard, they started offering numerous used Wii U consoles along with brand-new copies of Zelda.

 

Bright offered his viewpoint of Link’s brand-new experience by saying that Nintendo is really excellent at providing high quality video games, and that Zelda is one of the most highly ranked video games we’ve seen in a while.

 

It is easier to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Wii U and it is a lot cheaper. It has to be taken into consideration that there are currently not enough Nintendo Switch units in the market. GameStop stated that they will not have stock of the brand-new Nintendo console, regardless of the high need of the system.

 

 

‘We Happy Few’ to Get Movie Treatment

Video games have served as a basis for several movies, with an erratic success rate at the box office. While the storied franchise of “Resident Evil” video games has given birth to fourteen years of films within a parallel universe to its own gaming universe, other contenders like “Assassin’s Creed” have failed to bring in notable profits. Despite the shaky odds that game-based film adaptations have fostered, some studios remain hopeful.

 

At least one of these impending video game adaptations greatly differs a great deal from its forebears; the survivor-horror title “We Happy Few” is up for a film adaptation. Beyond the source material’s rather distinct setting, aesthetic and premise, the We Happy Few film differs from previous game adaptations by being derived from an independent title, rather than a game produced by a major studio or belonging to an established franchise. The basic setting of the source material is a small ’60s English town whose populace is pacified by chemicals. The game’s premise is one of dark humor, paranoia, madness and survival as the player’s character struggles to escape without alerting suspicions.

 

While the video game was produced by Compulsion Games, We Happy Few’s film will be handled by dj2 Entertainment and Gold Circle Entertainment. Its production team consists of Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and dj2’s Dmitri M. Johnson and Dan Jevons. Stephan Bugaj, also from dj2, will serve as the film’s executive producer. Gold Circle’s cinematic body of work includes “Pitch Perfect” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” As things currently stand, there has been no announcement of a screenwriter or director for the project.

 

News that We Happy Few is getting a film treatment should bring joy to fans of video games and horror. It is also heartening to learn that even indie games can garner enough attention that studios want to bring it to the silver screen, possibly bringing even more attention to the titles produced beyond the influence of major game studios. That being said, We Happy Few’s film is still very young and much could happen between now and the time of its completion.

Thimbleweed Park Reinvents the Old School PC Game

There is a new video game called Thimbleweed Park, available for the PC, that looks like it stepped right out of the 90s. However, this game intends to have an old-school look and feel to it. This point-and-click adventure that leads two detectives into a very bizarre town. The two main detectives, Antonio and Angela, are the main characters of the game.

 

One reason that this video game excels is because it doesn’t take itself too seriously. A game involving detectives tracking a murderer should definitely have a serious tone. However, Thimbleweed Park keeps a balance of seriousness and humor that serves as a reminder that this is all just a game. Taking a cue from the popular DOS adventure games of the 90s, there are plenty of fun locations to explore.

 

Balancing a mixture between adventure and puzzle solving isn’t always easy in video games. Thimbleweed Park is able to strike a great balance between multiple game genres. The dialogue and voice work balances between adding to the story and injecting just the right amount of humor to keep things relatively light.

 

Certain point-and-click games of days gone by used to feel quite restrictive. Making matters worse, users would often have to complete such specific tasks in these games, it would take the fun out of the whole game. However, Thimbleweed Park allows the player an amount of freedom that is rarely seen in these types of games.

 

Don’t expect Thimbleweed Park to be a walk in the park. This game is one that can require deep thinking and plenty of trial and error. If you have grown up playing those old-school DOS games of the past, you will warm right up to the experience that Thimbleweed Park presents. Getting to solve a mystery within a town is a fun overall main story. The characters really add to the experience and the atmosphere throughout this game is superb. In addition, gamers who enjoy a little bit of difficulty will love the constant challenge that Thimbleweed Park offers.

British Gaming Companies Considering Brexit-Inspired Relocation

Two-fifths of British gaming companies have commented on plans to relocate all or a portion of their business endeavors after the wake of Brexit and its economic aftershocks. These companies have commented on how the UK’s withdrawal from the EU resulted in the loss of talent and funding. Industry firm Ukie surveyed 75 of the 2,000 plus game companies in the UK, most of which focused on the development of games.

 

The UK government commented that it sought to continue attracting global talent. A DCMS spokesperson remarked that UK’s creative industries are among the nation’s biggest success and that the government wants to maintain the UK’s status as a global leader in the field of video games. Britain is currently assessing its creative industries.

 

Ukie said that it sought to work with the government in order to shape the landscape so that it continually fosters business pertinent to interactive entertainment and gaming. The sale of UK games in 2016 contributed nearly £3 billion, positioning it above video or music entertainment. The firm consulted extensively with companies between the months of September and February, discerning that their main issue with Brexit was the lost of access to skilled talent; nearly three-fifths of these companies employed EU staff. Nearly all of the survey’s respondents stated that properly skilled EU nationals should have a default opportunity to live and worth within the UK.

 

Ukie reported that the competitive nature of the gaming industry necessitates the ability to draw diverse talent. Without access to that talent, many firms would likely relocate, depriving the UK of tax revenue. Another common worry from the Ukie survey was the disparity in data legislation between the UK and the EU. More than three-fifths of all respondents claimed that separating data held by UK customers could significantly cost firms, with one firm commenting that it would compensate for the issue by ending its publishing efforts within the UK. Other concerns included the possibility of cutting the UK off from EU-based programs like “Creative Europe.” 60 percent of all games companies experienced growth this year, declining from four-fifths last year.

 

Final Fantasy XV’s ‘Episode Gladiolus’ Is A Less Than Stellar DLC Debut

At one point during the course of “Final Fantasy XV,” Gladiolus, also known as “Gladio” and the bodyguard of Prince Noctis, leaves the party for a few chapters without explaining his reasons. While Gladio’s reasons for his temporary departure were never explained in FF XV, the recent DLC material of “Episode Gladiolus” yields an answer. While this offering allows you to take direct control of Gladio during his absence from the party, its execution leaves something to be desired.

 

Episode Gladiolus begins with the four-man band hanging out around the campfire with Prompto yapping his mouth and Noctis focusing on his phone. The friendship among these characters is one of Final Fantasy XV’s greatest benefits; sadly, things quickly change up so Gladio pairs up with Cor, a marshal loyal to Noctis. The main premise of this episode focuses on Gladio’s efforts to becoming the best retainer he can. Gladio’s path has him tackling the trail of Gilgamesh, a memorable character with several franchise appearances. Despite the heartening premise of tackling Gilgamesh, his “trial” is a series of linear corridors, broken up by combat sequences. While the Gilgamesh fight makes for a satisfying finish, the entire episode takes roughly 90 minutes to finish.

 

While FF XV’s combat has been relatively lackluster, the lack of access to Noctis’ teleportation and spellcasting abilities further diminishes that combat. Gladio’s combat boils down to spamming “attack” with an occasional dodge or shield-raise. The one unique way of attacking, using stone columns as improvised weaponry, quickly loses novelty.

 

Over the episode’s 90 minute running time, it never really satisfies narratively or mechanically. As if to further point out the distinction in protagonist, Episode Gladiolus shows up in a separate console window from FF XV and has you controlling a level 24 Gladio, regardless of your progress in FF XV. While there are a handful of parent game benefits after completing the episode, none are really notable except maybe shirtless Gladio. Overall, Episode Gladiolus is more of a mild chore than a lark whose main positives are a fight with Gilgamesh and a teaser for Prompto’s episode.
