[REVIEW] X-Men Destiny

26 10 2011

Silicon Knights, developer of Too Human, takes their shot at the iconic X-Men franchise. After Silicon Knight’s modest attempt with their Too Human game I was optimistic if not a bit wary about X-Men Destiny as well. Is this the X-Men game that everyone has been longing for on this generation of consoles? Or will this game simply be placed into that other category.

X-Men Destiny is rated “T” for Teen.

Here Comes The Men In Black

17 10 2011

Activision & Columbia Pictures have teamed up to release a game alongside the new Men In Black III movie next spring.  It is unconfirmed as of now if you will be playing as Agent K or Agent J, but it seems unlikely they will go in that direction.

“The Men in Black franchise is an unbeatable starting point to deliver a genre-bending gaming experience with a level of production value on par with Hollywood,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision.

Mark Caplan, Vice President of Licensing at Sony Pictures Entertainment, stated, “With Activision bringing the Men in Black universe to life on next gen consoles for the first time, the Men in Black video game will be both familiar to fans, an exciting beginning for the uninitiated, and revolutionary for the franchise.”

Let’s hope that Men In Black: Alien Warfare doesn’t Neuralyze us and…wait…what were we talking about?

Look for Men In Black to release sometime in Spring 2012.
