“Star Wars: The Old Republic has been given 4 new species for the MMO from A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away. The 4 new Species are the Sith Pureblood, the original Sith race; the Miraluka, a blind species adept at using the Force to see; the Mirialans, a green-skinned people with strong natural agility; and, finally, the Zabraks.” ~ Courtesy of Joystiq.com

My Reaction to this is Simply. Woot. If there’s anything that could possibly remain up there with WoW it’s definitely Star Wars: ToR.

Ahhh Duke Nukem Forever. The question use to be when will you come out? Honestly though the question now is when will you just leave us Gamers alone. Duke Nukem Forever has “apparently” (Keep in mind this is still a rumor) been picked up by Gearbox Software. If that name sounds familiar then you’ve been playing the FPS/RPG Mesh Borderlands for quite a bit. Take Two Interactive still has publishing rights to the title. (As confirmed by Kotaku.com)

It’s also been hinted at that a possible Demo could be released before years end. Gamers. Just like me, take this with a grain of salt…

BioShock: Infinite was announced on Thursday. Honest to god, I’ve never been excited for a BioShock game before in my life. I just didn’t see the appeal. Infinite on the other hand, looks DAMN Good. The “Up in the Air” vibe is very very cool. The Blimps and Zeppelins look just amazing. This is one of the first games in 2012 that I am really looking forward too.

I’m actually going to get on a bit of a soapbox here right now. People should know by now that Video Game to Movie adaptations are rarely ever what people hope they should be, so why is it that people are so Gung-ho about a BioShock Movie. I was talking with some people I knew at a party about BioShock because while I’ve never truly played BioShock 1 or 2, I’ve seen people playing it. I understand that it’d be a great concept and all that but honestly. The game is like a movie in every way, shape and form. Why would you want a movie about a game thats Basically a movie. It’s like people who want a Heavy Rain movie. It’s just Heavy Rain, only you aren’t doing anything. Games are a medium made to help you interact with things that you don’t normally do. Play Football, Kill a bunch of Zombies, Save Princesses from Gigantic Fire Breathing Turtles and so on. I’m very confused as to what people see in Game to Movie Adaptations when in the end. You’ve already seen the entire thing. Why pay 5, 7 or even 10, (if 3D decides to “make the movie better”…I really hate 3D.)  to go and see a movie which you’ve already played and interacted with. Especially with BioShock. I can understand games like Zelda, Metroid, Mario, or shit, even Halo, but when games like Metal Gear Solid and BioShock are in talks with getting a movie. I just think…why??

Anyway. Sorry for the lateness, had things out of my power that I couldn’t control. Anyway. See ya when I see ya folks.
