First Hellboy Trailer Sets A Rebellious Tone

The Hellboy reboot starring David Harbour as the titular protagonist, has divided fans since its announcement. Posters have excited some people and worried others, some fans want it closer to the source material while others prefer it to stray further away. The first trailer, which Lionsgate released today, might go a long way to getting a lot more people on board at once.

Check out the first trailer for Hellboy below.

The trailer seems to emphasize Hellboy charting a middle ground of being confident and cocksure while also still discovering his place in the world. Also smashing things real good with his giant arm.

Limbitless And 343 Collaborate On Prosthetic Master Chief Arm

Limbitless Solutions, a company that specializes in creating 3D-printed prosthetic limbs, is collaborating with Halo-developer 343 Industries to create a Master Chief arm for kids who want to live out their dreams of being Halo's main character themselves, even if just a little bit.

You might remember Limbitless from their viral video a few years back where Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. gave a child an Iron Man-themed prosthetic arm. The high-tech limbs are created in a variety of different themes and licenses, from sports teams to Spider-Man.

The Halo studio posted news about the collaboration on their official blog today, emphasizing how it fits with their focus on "inspiring heroes and delivering wonder." If you're pro-Spartan but not necessarily all about Master Chief, the companies are offering "multiplayer" variants on the arm with different color schemes to match the Spartan you want to be.

New Witcher Comic Book Series Begins Today

New Witcher Comic Book Series Begins Today

If you head to your local comic book store, or fire up your favorite reading app, I recommend taking a look at the first issue of The Witcher: Of Flesh and Flame, a new limited series by Dark Horse that launched today. The story is set in CD Projekt's video game adaptation of The Witcher, and once again focuses on the exploits of Geralt, who is tasked to solve a mystery for an old acquaintance.

This four-part story kicks off with a 32-page first issue written by Aleksandra Motyka with art by Marianna Strychowska. Don't worry, Geralt looks nothing like Henry Cavill in this series. This isn't Dark Horse's first time creating new stories for this license. Writer Paul Tobin penned a handful of stories, including House of Glass, Fox Children, and Killing Monsters. You can read Tobin's work in a collection that released in October.

Geralt has had a busy year, guesting in Bandai Namco's Soulcalibur VI a few months ago and making an appearance in Capcom's Monster Hunter: World early in 2019

For Honor Teases An Assassin's Creed Crossover

For Honor Teases An Assassin's Creed Crossover

For Honor's war planet seems to bring in the most powerful warriors from around time and the world to avoid sticky questions about why a samurai, a viking, and a knight are in a European-style castle at once. It also affords the game the chance to fudge the details a bit and crossover with other properties, like Assassin's Creed, which it seems Ubisoft is keen on doing.

The For Honor Twitter account teased a collaboration with other Ubisoft property Assassin's Creed with a vague but direct tweet. The little video shows the For Honor emblems morphing into the Abstergo logo, and then a short message stating a full reveal on December 20.

German Protection Agency Takes Nintendo To Court Over Eshop Cancellations

German Protection Agency Takes Nintendo To Court Over Eshop Cancellations

A Norwegian issue with the way Nintendo handles eShop cancellations, as in they completely refuse to do so, has now been escalated to the German courts. The German Consumer Protection Authority is taking legal action against Nintendo of Europe over their "all sales are final" policy in a case that may have rippling effects across Europe and beyond.

Nintendo's eShop lets you preorder games as much as you want as long as the listing is there. Unfortunately, if you decide you don't want the game for whatever reason, you can't cancel the preorder under any circumstances. This runs afoul of a number of European consumer protection laws, which Norway had a problem with earlier this year. Since Nintendo of Europe is based in Germany, the case has been moved there.

Nintendo's defense here is that preloading means that the transaction has already begun, whether the preloading itself has started or not. The company is citing article 16 of European Consumer Law Directive 2011/83, which states that cancellations can be ignored if "the performance has begun with the consumer's prior express consent, and with the acknowledgement that he will lose his right of withdrawal once the contract has been fully performed by the trader".

Travis Strikes Again Special Edition Signed By Suda51 Releasing In UK

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is still a bit of an enigma for No More Heroes fans, but it is hard to argue the game doesn't have that old Suda style and that will probably be enough for a large number of fans. To further reinforce that idea, Suda is actually signing a special edition of the game with goodies in it for fans for release in the UK, but shipping everywhere.

English readers, here’s a collector edition for Travis Strikes Again

Red Dead Redemption Commands U.S. Game Sales For November With Black Ops, Battlefield, And Fallout Behind

Red Dead Redemption Commands U.S. Game Sales For November With Black Ops, Battlefield, And Fallout Behind

The NPD, or National Purchase Diary, tracks retail sales across the U.S. on a monthly basis including for gaming, occasionally receiving and reporting data from digital sales as well depending on the publisher. While Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beat out Red Dead Redemption II last month in part due to how much earlier within October Call of Duty was released, the roles were reversed in November with Red Dead Redemption II winning the battle but not quite the war.

Red Dead Redemption rocketed to first place this month, which pretty much every industry analyst in the world expected. Despite only being on two platforms to Call of Duty's three platforms including PC, the game still sold the most copies in November. That said, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is still the overall best selling game of the year, partly because of that PC release. Red Dead Redemption could pull ahead given December, but 2018 might belong to Call of Duty much like 2017 did, as well as the previous three years.

Though, anyone who has ever bet against Rockstar games having extremely long sales legs has ended up with monthly egg on their face. The sales of Red Dead Redemption II already exceed the entire lifetime sales of Red Dead Redemption by 40 percent.
