    • Adventure Time is Ending

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Bad news, everyone! The Adventure Time cartoon series is coming to an end.


      Cartoon Network made the announcement today that the series will come to an end following Season 9 in 2018.


      BgXFe18.gif


      The series was created by Pendleton Ward and debuted in April 2010. It follows Jake the Dog and Finn the Human through the post-apocalyptic land of Ooo.


      In a statement regarding the end of the series, Ward said:


      "‘Adventure Time’ was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”During its run, the show has garnered six Emmy Awards and a Peabody award (so far), and has become a cult favorite for its quirky sense of humor, creative storytelling, and charming animation.

      The premiere date for the show's eighth season hasn't been set yet, but is expected sometime later this year.

    • First Look at Nidhogg 2

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Nidhogg 2 has been announced with a new teaser trailer and set for release sometime in 2017 for PC and "maybe some other platforms."


      So far, it looks like the new game will contain at least 10 levels, local and online multiplayer, and both single player and tournament modes. The single player mode will challenge players to take on waves of opponents and complete special challenges.


      The sequel will also feature overhauled character animations and environments, and a new sound track featuring Mux Mool, Dose One, and Daedelus.


      Response from fans to the new teaser has been mixed so far, with some complaining of the new art style, though others are feeling optimistic.


      I respect the choices of the devs regarding the art direction of Nidhogg 2 but also exercise my right to say I hate it.

      *folds arms*

    • Jon Favreau Teams Up with Disney for Live Action Lion King

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Following the success of Jon Favreau's take on a live action adaptation of The Jungle Book, which hit theaters in April 2016 and grossed $965 million world wide on a budget of $175 million, Favreau and Disney have announced their next project: a live action take on The Lion King.


      Favreau tweeted an initial tease minutes before Disney made it official:


      Excited for my next project
    • Beyond Good & Evil 2 Potential Teaser

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Beyond Good & Evil creator Michel Ancel has teased an image on his Instagram that looks suspiciously like artwork from the long-in-development-to-the-point-of-vaporware Beyond Good & Evil 2.


      14369192_953707601400156_870489880195078


      Somewhere in system 4 ... - Thanks #ubisoft for making this possible !

      At the same time, Ubisoft France made a cryptic tweet directing fans to keep an eye on Ancel's social media for upcoming news.


      Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced in 2008, though little has been seen since, aside from a CGI Teaser.




      It's not yet confirmed whether the tease is legitimately for the Beyond Good & Evil sequel, but Michel Ancel has been relatively quiet following his work on 2013's Rayman Legends, so it's possible this project is nearing the reveal phase.

    • New Stills From the Assassin's Creed Movie

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Ubisoft has released a new batch of still shots and production photos from the upcoming Assassin's Creed film, starring Michael Fassbender, Jeremy Irons, and Marion Cotillard.


      The new shots include Fassbender's Aguilar engaging in franchise staple free running, a view of Irons' Templar Alan Rikkin with a hidden blade, and (of course) horses.

      The film made headlines recently with the news that the historical segments of the film will all take place in Spanish with English subtitles.


      For those unfamiliar with the premise of the film, it describes itself as:


      Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.


      Assassin's Creed his theaters December 21, 2016.

    • Doctor Strange Confirmed for Avengers: Infinity War

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      It already seemed likely, given the timing of Doctor Strange's upcoming introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that the good doctor would tie in somehow to the events of Infinity War, and now it's confirmed by actor Bunderbunt Cumdebump.


      Speaking with Empire on the subject of fellow cinematic universe actors Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Bettany, Cunderdund said:


      "To get us all together will be quite something. That’s why this character is being introduced, to open up the next chapter. So watch this space to see how that unfolds."

      Doctor Strange hits domestic theaters November 4, 2016. Avengers: Infinity War will follow in May 2018.


      In the interim we'll see more of current MCU heroes, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), and Black Panther (2018).

    • UPS Begins Drone Delivery Testing

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Looks like UPS wants in on Amazon's lunch. The delivery service has begun testing of drones as a means of delivery.


      The first trial sent a drone to deliver a small package containing a mock asthma inhaler to an island-based summer camp in the Atlantic. The drone for the test was provided by CyPhy Works, a Massachusetts-based company in which UPS is an investor. 


      The drone made the 3 mile trip across open water in 8 minutes to complete the delivery and operated autonomously.


      The test was made possible by new rules put in place by the FAA around commercial drone use.

    • Developer Thanks Pirates for Their Attention

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Usually, developers are less than happy to see freeloading pirates downloading their game. They see it as theft. After all, those pirates are enjoying the fruits of their labors without dropping a dime in support of those labors.


      However, one indie developer is taking another approach.


      Since the PS Vita was hacked to run a range of unofficial software, pirates have been having a heyday. One of the games that's been seeing a lot of activity is a music title called Superbeat Xonic.


      When the developers discovered the game being shared, PM Studios sent pirates an unusually friendly message:


      "Hello everybody!
      We feel honoured that you enjoy our game SUPERBEAT XONiC so much, we would like to invite you to take this opportunity to purchase it on sale at the Playstation Store. You can enjoy the original game and show support to the team for just $15.99 (60% off), no Playstation Plus required! 
      Have a nice day!"

      No word yet on whether they've converted any pirates into paying customers, but they're one of few developers who put a positive spin on the issue of piracy.

    • Game Developers Drop Oculus Support Over Luckey Controversy

      2 years ago

      Ashley The Know

      Earlier today we posted a report that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has been funding a political shitposting group in favor of presidential candidate Donald Trump. In light of Luckey’s political bankrolling, several game developers, mainly indie studios, have announced they’ll be pulling support for Luckey’s VR platform, Oculus Rift.


      Fez developer Polytron made their announcement via Twitter that Superhypercube, an upcoming PlayStation VR title, will no longer support Oculus rift. The statement reads, "In a political climate as fragile and horrifying as this one, we cannot tacitly endorse these actions by supporting Luckey or his platform. In light of this, we will not be pursuing Oculus support for our upcoming VR release, SUPERHYPERCUBE.”


      Similarly, Scruta Games, the studio behind Computer Janitor, tweeted that, “Until PalmerLuckey steps down from his position at Oculus, we will be cancelling Oculus support for our games.”


      And VR developer Newton Labs announced, “NewtonVR will not be supporting the Oculus Touch as long as he is employed there.”


      However, other developers feel the controversy is overblown. Carbon Games co-founder James Green told Motherboard, "This backlash is nonsense...I absolutely support him doing whatever he wants politically if it's legal. To take any other position is against American values."


      Other developers suggested alternatives, including donations for opposing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and SoundStage developer Logan Olson announced plans to donate the proceeds from his game to Clinton's campaign for 24 hours.


      Larger studios, such as Insomniac Games, have been more measured in their response. Insomniac stated, "Insomniac Games condemns all forms of hate speech. While everyone has a right to express his or her political opinion, the behavior and sentiments reported do not reflect the values of our company. We are also confident that this behavior and sentiment does not reflect the values of the many Oculus employees we work with on a daily basis."

      Mad props on the Frou Frou liking... i actually saw Imogen Heap (singer of Frou Frou) in concert in Columbus, OH a few weeks ago, i had previously imported the new album (under imogen heap... will be released in the us on nov 1st) and it's gorgeous. And the only song she played from Frou Frou at the concert was "Let Go" which was unreal. But yeah, pick up that album when you can, and if you're in to that kind of music [which i'm pretty sure of due to Delerium and Massive Attack] you should check out Conjure One [rhys fulber from delerium's solo project], and Jem. Both of which are excellent. A pretty girl who kicks ass at video games. We need to clone you.

      As far as peoples favorite films Spaceballs is awesome, all of mel brooks' films are awesome. There are like a dozen, I can remember spaceballs obviously, blazing saddles, young frankenstein( even better than spaceballs), high anxiety, robinhood: men it tights, history of the world part 2, and I havent seen dracula dead and loving it or holy moses. young frankenstein is a little slower though, spaceballs is like jokes for begining to end but there was so much to make fun of. there are like hundreds of stupid stuff to make fun of about science fiction space movies. " I bet she gives great helmet" ha ha. whatever all of them are funny
      anything of monty python's is good too

      the one thing that was good in FFX-2 was the classing system. it did a fantastic job of allowing a 3-person party to handle every battle and its different requirements with flexibility and grace.

    • caboose4prz

      13 years ago

      Ah. Final Fantasy 10. I am a fan of it but the developers should have stopped there. They ruined the greatness of 10 with the X-2. After 10 it did not hold up to any of my expectations. What I really didn't like about the game was the new way of gameplay and the battles. I've never been a fan of timed battles. I've always liked 10 where its more stratagey and you have time to plan out your attack. Every get your hands dirty in FF7? That is the game that originally got me into the whole series and still is my favorite out of them all.

    • caboose4prz

      Oh you so totally rock now. I've heard they re-released it onto Game Boy Advanced. If this rumor holds true i have a definate future investment since i can no longer find the game on super nintendo.

      RPG gamer. Awesome. The world could always use more RPGers. My favorite RPG to date. Its quite old...not sure if you've heard of it. It was released on Super Nintendo. Secret of Mana. Oh it was great! The story line was wonderful and the graphics for its time was outstanding. I got into Breath of Fire II back then as well.

      More recently i've been getting my hands dirty in Fable and just bought Guild Wars. I've heard a lot of good things about Guild Wars so i'm hoping to be impressed.
