Mornin '10
Hey, guys, how's it going? I'm sure you're all locked forever in some form of boyish microcosm or fantasy, so you're fine, don't worry. Anyway, I've just watched the new Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time movie trailer and I'm beginning to wonder how far Hollywood means to take all this game-to-movies transition. Well, apparently they mean to carry it to ridiculous lengths. PoP should be alright as an action movie, I guess. But can you actually think of an original plot and characters for a movie based on Asteroids the video game? Next thing you know, we'll see Avatar 2: The Movie - Based on the Avatar Video Game Movie Tie-in!

Is it just me, or is it all getting out of hand? Or has it been out of hand for a long time and nobody seems to care?

We should all be movie directors.

Vader, you're such a handsome devil, yes you are.

Prince was an orphan?

Well that's a shocker.
Well the trailer is as cheesy as they can get. I hope they will go broke.
Whole disney gone broke. Imagine that.
Vader [STAFF] Mar 03 2010, 02:19 am EST
I'm imagining right now.
  Alchi: Does it feel good?
Vader: Yes...
Vader: NO!
Marku5K: ...maybe!

I can't help thinking that the games industry is slowly going the same way as the pop music and Hollywood movie industry because sadly at the end of the day its all about money, not quality, not creativty or innovation - is their even room for 'artists' in the world of video games anymore.... sorry something got me started :-/

Indeed, most devs don't care about quality games now.

I can't stand Disney from the get go, a bunch of hacks who hadn't hatched an original idea since Walt ran things. Hells yeah it's going down the crapper, they'll pillage our past Saturday Morning Cartoon Library and claim to be fans; all the while making junk like G.I. Joe.

Praise Earl for foreign films.

I just completed the first two missions in SupCom 2. It isn't as bad as I feared, but it just doesn't have that SupCom feeling, like the first game did. Upgrading units is WAY too easy. All you need is 4 research stations, and the research points come in steady.

Hi there.
Yeah. It's getting worse by the minute, but most of us only contribute to this mess by giving it monetary support.

And Vader, yes, you are one handsome devil (oh well).
  Vodoo: meh, i wouldn't tongue him.
Alchi: I don't give em money... Not a single penny...

Well here's the thing though, it takes a lot of time to create an entirely new IP and then sell it to someone who can finance it. I honestly think Hollywood is willing to take chances, it just isn't going to do it all the time, and so we only see a couple like that come out a year. The fact is, to fill in all the rest of the time that we demand to be entertained, requires pumping out movies, or games, left and right and that can only be done by rehashing old stuff.

The thing is either be content with only a couple pieces of entertainment a year that are fresh and inventive, or enjoy the new stuff with the rehashed ideas to keep you entertained in between.

BTW I know this isn't game related, but for once marketing did its job because the ad on this site for Slayers Revolution caught my attention. I didn't even know that they had made a 4th season :). I'm so happy right now.
