i predict that it won't be very good, but we'll see. seems like it's a bit too late to make an Apocalypse Now adaptation game. something with similar themes, sure, (probably combining it even more with Heart of Darkness--that's what i'd do, at least, along with references to what could've been with the film itself) but not a direct adaptation

Hideo Kojima says that games, movie, and books will fused together in one single entertainment form.

I don't doubt this will happen, but I wonder how long it will last before the system implodes on itself.

I remember how James Rolfe said in his review of the 1993 Super Marion Bros. movie that most of the Nintendo bosses were so horrified by the Super Mario Bros. movie that they canceled plans for a Metroid movie and never let any character be in a live-action movie since. Is it just me, or is Samus Aran one of the few video game characters from Nintendo that can be legitimately successful?

So I watched a friend stream Resi 7 the other night.

Was good up until a certain point and everything just came crashing down in terms of how I felt about the game. Such a shame.

The Tomb Raider games have been average. Should have waited on the announcement as well. I think.

I haven't played all the games, but the 2013 reboot is quite good. It wouldn't have had won so many awards otherwise.

I saw that. It was only a matter of time before that happened. They really do these things with great care and take a lot of attention to detail. I disagree with a few of the results, but only a few. And even then, they explain it well so you can see why the battle ended the way it did.

right. the only one i disagree with is Peach vs. Zelda because it was stacked completely in Peach's favor (and in light of Zelda games since then, i think it warrants a revisit similar to Goku vs. Superman and Samus vs. Boba Fett). contrast Batman vs. Spider-Man, which i don't like the result of but have to agree with the reasoning: for as awesome as he is, Batman is still only human, whereas Spider-Man is an actual superhuman with actual superpowers.

Eh, the fact Batman has beaten actual super humans before still makes the Spider-man one questionable in my eyes. I find Spider-man much more easily beaten, than say Wolverine, who even if Batman beat him, would have to worry about him just regenerating.

Anyone playing Resident Evil VII? I am...sort of. I've played on and off since release, but apparently I'm still able to get spooked when I'm alone at night playing. So I've been playing to the brink of heart attack, and then stopping for the night. Razz

Batman vs Spider-Man is not very refutable. Because unlike many super powered people Spider-Man is a genius. He may actually be smarter than Wayne's genius level intellect. Plus he has spider sense and he pulls his punches. So not only could he dodge whatever Wayne threw he could actually knock out or kill Wayne in ONE PUNCH.

Also Drake better have one that. Then again apparently he can't throw a flying punch since he threw a couple at Nadine in UC4 and she took it like a concrete jaw would.

also, remember, another provision of Death Battle is that there's no internal prep-time given for any of the combatants and characters who didn't crossover canonically can't know about each other to begin with. Batman can defeat just about anyone given time and preparation, but not in a "cage match" scenario like Death Battle. the deciding factor for that fight had been, again, for as strong as he is, Batman still has human limits whereas Spider-Man has the advantage of superstrength and spider-sense, so he can see just about anything Bats throws at him

but we're getting off-topic. maybe we should have a Death Battle Thread? since the fourth season will be starting soon, it wouldn't be too bad of an idea.

Splinter Cell is a lot less fantastical and can easily be made in the vein of Tom Clancy's other good adaptations, Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games and stuff. I have more faith than I did for AC.

It looks like a Metal Gear Solid movie isn't dead yet.

Personally, as a huge Metal Gear fan, I think that the only way how a MGS movie can work is if it's either a straight-to-DVD animated movie or as a Lego movie. And in both cases, with the original voice actors/actresses reprising their roles. I just think a outright movie adaptation of this video game franchise can't work because for all the realism the Metal Gear series has, it still has a lot of things that can't be translated into a movie, at least not totally.

Personally, I think that this and the animated Castlevania TV show that's coming out is to bring back their old fans who semi-abandoned Konami via strongarming Hideo Kojima to quit and how they tried to shove Metal Gear Survive down our throats as well as limiting the damage if Metal Gear Survive bombs.

They definitely wouldnt make a LEGO Metal Gear movie. Considering the material I think that would bomb really badly.

I don't doubt that it would be a big risk, but all things considered. It would be the better route. One has to remember that although the Metal Gear universe has far more realism compared to most games, their is still a lot of things that you only can get away with in the games that you can't if you make a direct movie adaptation. With a Lego movie you can get away with most of that. Besides, I'm in a Metal Gear Solid fan club and when that was posted, a lot of other people besides me are against the idea. The history of video games being outright adapted into movies is not a good on to look at.

Hideo Kojima's mother recently died.

Here's a very interesting article about why Microsoft's planned Halo movie was never made. It seems that even without Tom Rothman's interference, this movie wouldn't have been made anyway.

It looks like the Metal Gear Solid movie might really get made after all.

I still think that the best case scenario is that it becomes like the first Mortal Kombat movie where it's a surprise success, but one that the fans like/love far more then the GA. I know that Jordan Vogt-Roberts really wants this to work, but I'm not sure that it can.

Here's more info about that Metal Gear Solid movie.

Personally, I think that the only Metal Gear games that can be adapted into movies are the first two games. Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. This is mainly because of how much creative freedom there is to exploit since those games don't have as much depth/moving parts. You can even have some Foxhound commandos work with Snake in these adaptations as a nod to Metal Gear Solid.

Even Nostalgia Whiner and his other man child minions are more respectable "critics" than Angry Joe. And that's saying a lot.

Anyway, Sarkeesian's such a legendary cash-in SJW that in a way you've got to admire her soulless greed.
