I don't remember how many times I've watched parodies based on Downfall...So it doesn't surprise me that this time Hitler became a Starcraft gamer, and showed his anger to Blizzard for no lan gameplay in the upcoming Starcraft 2. Here you can watch the video [via Gossipgamer]:...
Maybe you were wondering the possibility of turning Grand Theft Auto series game into a movie, it's not gonna happen because Rockstar does not have any plan on GTA's film adaption so far. As a matter of fact, vice president Dan Houser says the prospect of one considered, and then quickly tossed aside.
"We don't believe that the Grand Theft Auto games, which are massive in scope and structurally complex, can be adequately compressed into a two-hour movie," he told the LA Times. "It seems obvious to us that maintaining the long-term integrity of any entertainment property has been dependent on not making substandard spin-off products to people whose primary interest is making a quick buck.
"If we ever decide to do a film, it will be because we have resolved our creative doubts, and while retaining enough control to ensure that if the movie is terrible, at least we will know we ruined the property ourselves. Via [ VG247 ]
Completely agree, just take Resident Evil as a counterexample, it's nice to see Rockstar chooses the best way to protect their property....
Still remember the petition to marry a 2D character? A branch of Japanese otaku(s) asked for a law to allow human to marry with a 2 dimensional character. Whatever the case was going, somehow a man in Japan admitted he had already been in a loving relationship with a 10-year-old videogame character, and...he meant it.
Nisan, who refuses to mention his real name, is a 37-year-old man living a otaku style life. He once had a real girlfriend, but she dumped him. Nisan's new "girlfriend" is what we've seen in the picture above, a lovely 2D girl known by the name of Nemutan, in the PC game Da Capo.
According to the original report of him:
He carries Nemutan almost everywhere he goes, though he is more self-conscious about it than he may seem at first. "Some people don’t find this funny," he said, "and it also takes up a lot of room." He treats her the way any decent man would treat a girlfriend - he takes her out on the weekends to sing karaoke or take purikura, photo-booth pictures imprinted on a sheet of tiny stickers. He doesn't take her to the work place, but has a spare pillow case with her likeness at the office, just in case he needs
Seems more good news in current two days? Yesterday I was glad to hear that Blizzard confirmed World of Warcraft's adaption to movie, and today the breaking news of Halo anime really excite me. Here's your first peek.
The Los Angeles Times has broke the news, while Kotaku has somehow got wind of the production houses involved.
Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist), Casio Entertainment, Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell), Studio4 C (Transformers Animated), and Toei Animation (Dragonball). The LA Times also report that Microsoft’s creative staff is approving ‘major visual and storytelling decisions’. [Source: latimes, kokugamer, kotaku]

Cry! Uwe Boll, cry!! Thanks God we don't have to care the petition against him any longer because Blizzard has confirmed that Sam Raimi signed on to direct the Word of Warcraft movie, according to VG247.

Seanbaby at Cracked.com posted a hilarious article about understanding the World of warcraft using Super Mario Brothers. Although I didn't play WoW for a long term, I do have a sense that what he said are all true! Well I've noticed there are some WoW fans over this site, you might want to say something after reading this...
My award-winning “Learning with Super Mario Brothers” system has helped thousands of children get their plumbing and pizza-making degrees, and is the leading cause of turtle extinction. You’re welcome. Now the power of this educational program can be used to achieve something that was at one time impossible: understanding World of Warcraft.
You might be asking, “How can one video game help explain another?” If you are, please turn to section )*) to kiss my learning program on the ass and butthole. Everyone else, let’s continue.
WoW isn’t like other nerd things. You can theoretically never see Star Wars, but during your everyday life you’ll pick up a basic understanding of what a Chewbacca is. However, if you never played World of Warcraft, listening to someone talk about it sounds like senseless and frigh
[Via VG247] While speaking at develop regarding thatgamecompany’s flow and Flower, Jenova Chen told attendees that games need more mature content by way of emotional engagement, not necessarily violence. Otherwise titles become nothing more than “toys”.
“I never see that sense of thrill any more in today’s games,” he said. “Yes, today’s games are more real and satisfying but the underlining mechanics are no different from toys. But the human brain likes information – it’s like a sponge that sucks up information and wants more all the time.
“Other pursuits are enjoyed by adults and not viewed as toys. As grown up gamer I don’t want to see the games I have been playing with love turn into toys. I think games need to have more mature content – but not like [Dead of Alive] or [Manhunt], but more sophisticated works.
“Games should make the player think and touch the gamer’s emotion. Gameplay needs to be like any other medium – it has to evoke all kinds of responses. Otherwise our industry will flatline. “It shouldn’t be about one feeling – like excitement or happiness. Humans h...
The Electric shock therapy for curing game addicts finally has been stopped by Chinese goverment, after more and more accusants posting their painful experience on the web. I have posted a blog before, about how the Electric shock therapy works. It was absolutely a violation of human right.
The Ministry of Health issued the order yesterday to the clinic in Linyi, Shandong province according to China Daily:
More than 3,000 young people were tricked or forced into in to the four-month long course. To enroll their children, parents or guardians had to sign a contract acknowledging that they would be given electric shocks of up to 200 milliamperes. The treatment cost 6,000 yuan ($878) per month…
Shocks were given if patients broke any of the center’s 86 rules, which included prohibitions on eating chocolate, locking the bathroom door, taking pills before a meal, and sitting in Dr. Yang’s chair without permission.
Details of the treatment first became public when former patients wrote about their experiences online.
Now what I want to know urgently is, what will the goverment to do with that cheeky sun of a beach --so called Dr. Yang yonxin. And I wonder, at the same time,...
An 18-year-old Indiana boy from Greenwood is now under investigation by the Bureau after claiming a number of "very serious" threats via the most popular online role-playing game World of Warcraft. (fed up with these stuff via WoW huh? Me too)
According to the report, on Monday morning, the boy said in-game that he "was going to board a plane at 7:30 to Chicago and that (he) was going to try and kill as many Americans as possible". He then left several other, similar messages, which caused Blizzard to notify the authorities, believing they were"very serious".
The boy, who originally told investigators that someone had hacked into his computer, admitted he jokingly made the threats, which did not name a specific airline, because he had heard that merely doing so would bring police to his house, "but I didn't really believe it,"he said.
After all cops showed up and seized his computer as the evidence, poor boy...you should have never tested the authorities, even under terrorist jokes.. Read from Kotaku...
Have you ever rage quit a game? I sure know I have. It happens even to the most patient of gamers. But, it is more than just turning off the game and doing something else. The art of rage quit is complex and takes years to perfect
The art of rage quit
If you want to master the art of rage quit you should follow these simple steps. (Originally from uberhacks.com)
1. Let the anger build
Don’t fire up straight away. Suppress the anger. Let it brood and build inside of you until your face feels hot and your palms begin to sweat. This is how it starts. It is not called a “kinda angry quit” - it is called a rage quit. Think Hulk.
2. Insult everyone around you
It doesn’t matter if you are sitting next to the President himself, insult them. Insult your friends and tell them how bad they are at the game. Yell like you are about to cry.
3. Take it out on the keyboard
You know, if you push the keys really hard and in an aggressive way the people online will know you are angry. You should smash that keyboard like it is your opponent in person.
4. Smash something
A rage quit really isn’t a rage quit until you have broken something. One time I threw my mouse across the room
