Sonic Movie Director Vows To Fix Hedgehog Design

The other day, Paramount and Sega finally showed off the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, a live-action/CG movie starring James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, and Jim Carrey. The reaction to the trailer was not...great. Besides all of the other extremely questionable choices about it, Sonic's design, which appeared to be like some kind of blue fur-person and less like a walking, talking cartoon character, raised a lot of concerns with fans.

Those concerns have been heard by the movie's director, Jeff Fowler. In a tweet, Fowler acknowledged the furor over the design and promised that they would make changes to it.

Thank you for the support. And the criticism. The message is loud and clear... you aren't happy with the design & you want changes. It's going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be... #sonicmovie #gottafixfast

Jon Bernthal Joins Ghost Recon: Wildlands For New Missions Today

Jon Bernthal Joins Ghost Recon: Wildlands For New Missions Today

Ubisoft revealed today new missions for Ghost Recon Wildlands, their multiplayer squad-based shooter would be launching today and are bringing some start power with them. Titled Operation Oracle, the new missions set off a free weekend for the game and seemingly tease a new Ghost Recon game. Moreover, they also star Jon Bernthal, who played Shane on AMC’s The Walking Dead and the eponymous Punisher in the Netflix show.

Check out the live action trailer of Bernthal below.

Bernthal plays Ghost team leader Cole D. Walker, who Ubisoft points out is a bit of a loose cannon with his own agenda. The mission is fairly story-based and, as the blog post for the new content points out, "What you will discover here might very well set the scene for the future." It is very hard to interpret that as anything other than a tease for more new content or a new game.

Mysterious Left 4 Dead Video Appears On YouTube

Mysterious Left 4 Dead Video Appears On YouTube

A year ago, game developer and Steam purveyor Valve, seemingly aware of their reputation more for the latter than the former, said that they were going to get back in the business of shipping games once again. At the time, it was clear that they meant things like their Dota 2 card game Artifact, which is going through its own problems, and likely games such as Campo Santo's In the Valley of the Gods, which Valve wholly acquired. 

A new video teaser that appeared on YouTube today, however, suggests that a new Left 4 Dead might be in the works.

To be clear from the get-go, it is not obvious whether this teaser is actually from Valve or if it is a fan-made animation. Valve has not claimed ownership, no one has claimed ownership. The account that uploaded the video, Clusterflu961, has uploaded nothing else. It was created on May 1, yesterday, and the name is possibly a reference to the flu from Left 4 Dead that incites the zombie apocalypse. The account was created in Canada, but the extent to which that means anything is probably not severe.

Major Dark Souls Overhaul Mod Daughters Of Ash Now Available For The Remastered Version

Major Dark Souls Overhaul Mod Daughters Of Ash Now Available For The Remastered Version

A few months ago, we posted about the Daughters of Ash overhaul mod for Dark Souls. The mod remixed the entire game from top to bottom, messing with enemy placement, scripting changes, and more for a new experience for seasoned Dark Souls players. The mod, being a culmination of years and thousands of hours of work, only supported the original PC release of Dark Souls. In a surprisingly quick turnaround, the mod creator has gotten Daughters of Ash compatible with the Remastered release as well.

Dark Souls Remastered released in 2017 on consoles as well as PC, but it did come out before the release of Daughters of Ash. While players are split about some of the game's graphical changes, especially compared to the original game with the fanmade DSFix mod, the Remastered version also has things like native button remapping, no 60 FPS ladder glitches, and some changes to the way you pick up and equip items. This made some fans eager for Daughters of Ash to support the newer version.

Scott "Grimrukh" Mooney, the creator of the mod, agreed, and said he had planned to get the mod to support Dark Souls Remastered before the summer. True to his word, Daughters of Ash is now available to use regardless of which version you own. You can download the mod here.
