If Bard’s Tale IV Is A Hit, Brian Fargo Will Buy Back Interplay

The founder of inXile studios, Brian Fargo, recently tweeted out that he’d buy back the studio he co-founded in 1983 if The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep sells over two million copies in 18 months.

In an interview with Variety, Fargo said that he was entirely serious about the idea stating that “fans have been requesting me to bring back my old Interplay games for years and this would be the most amazing way to make that happen.”

Going bankrupt and then announcing that it would be selling off its IP in 2016, Interplay introduced the world to such acclaimed titles as Fallout and Baldur’s Gate.

Captain Marvel Takes To The Skies In First Trailer

Captain Marvel Takes To The Skies In First Trailer

Captain Marvel was teased in the final moments of Avengers: Infinity War. After witnessing a world-ending event, Nick Fury activated a beacon set within a pager that looked like it was preserved in a time capsule from the 1980s. Captain Marvel's logo appears on the screen. If she's an ally of S.H.I.E.L.D., and has been around for decades, where has she been all of this time? We're about to find out when her standalone film, Captain Marvel, hits theaters on March 8, 2019.

You can take your first look at this period piece that details Captain Marvel's origin story. The trailer focuses heavily on her human life as Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson), and teases all is not as it seems. Danvers apparently has a different life tied to the Kree empire. In a shot we see her on the Kree homeworld of Hala, and in her Kree Starforce uniform. The Skrulls and Ronan the Accuser are also teased.

Marvel put together a hell of a trailer to introduce this powerful character into Marvel's Cinematic Universe. This film can't come soon enough. The wait for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel is too long. We need a Marvel fix, stat!

Capcom has not announced anything pertaining to Dead Rising's future or if Capcom Vancouver itself is closed. The official press release on the matter (click the source link below) only states it's "reviewing the allocation of its development resources..."

Take-Two CEO Thinks Cross-Platform Play Is Inevitable

At a presentation at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference last week, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said that he believed cross-platform play is an inevitability, especially when it comes to PC.

"The closed system walls are coming down," he told the audience. Zelnick is taking a multi-track mentality to the idea, thinking that cross-platform involves being primarily device agnostic. "Microsoft is basically already there," referring to the platform holder's stated policy to put games on both Xbox One and PC.

The next step, Zelnick thinks, will be streaming to different devices.
