For all the careful creativity that shines through every frame of their short runtimes, these pieces of vital promotion are typically remarked upon only when they do something “wrong” in the eyes of fickle fans. But for creative directors like The Mill’s Will Adams, it’s a risk these effects and editing wizards … [Read more...] about The Art of the Video Game Trailer

Possibly Bad Movie Hell. By Scott Wampler Mar. 11, 2019 Look, a movie based on Doom was always a bad idea. That game, a legitimate classic, had something of an interesting hook ("What if meddling scientists opened up a portal to Hell...on Mars?!") and an undeniably satisfying gameplay loop ("Kill everything that wanders into your field of vision with an increasingly outlandish series of firearms"), but - as the 2005 feature film version of Doom proved - the elements that worked in video game form only served to create a film that felt hopelessly derivative. Space marines battling waves of monsters? We have an Aliens for that. Portals to Hell being opened accidentally in space? Bruh, do you even Event Horizon? Fuck outta here. Now, someone (director Tony Giglio) has made another Doom movie, Doom: Annihilation. You're never gonna believe this, but now - on top of feeling derivative of a number of other classic sci-fi/action/horror titles - the latest … [Read more...] about The First DOOM: ANNIHILATION Trailer Opens A Portal To Hell

This morning, Nintendo hosted a rather short edition of their Nintendo Direct presentations, focused on Pokémon—specifically, the “core” Pokémon titles coming to the Nintendo Switch. It took just over seven minutes to debut the new games, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and even less time for the three predictably adorable starter Pokémon to take over the internet, but underneath it all, the games don’t seem all that new. As usual, those three include a grass type (Grookey), a fire type (Scorbunny) , and a water type (Sobble), with one of them accompanying you across the game’s new Galar region. (Each of them already has a growing fan club online.) That region looks expansive and detailed like never before, thanks to the fact that this is the first main entry in the franchise to land on a Nintendo home console, albeit still one that doubles as a portable. The games also feature the return of some Pokémon staples that were missing from … [Read more...] about Pokémon Sword/Shield: Adorable Starters, Prettier Graphics, Same Gameplay?
