Come With Me And You'll See The Latest Ready Player One Trailer

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped a new trailer for Ready Player One that dives deeper into the virtual pop culture paradise of Oasis.

In Ready Player One, people have foregone a dystopian reality to plug into a completely immersive virtual space called Oasis. In Oasis, players can do and be anything, but the protagonist, Wade Owen Watts, and his friends are playing a much bigger game. Dubbed "gunters", Wade is part of a sub-culture within Oasis that follow clues through the seemingly limitless pop-culture references left behind by the eccentric creator of Oasis. With control of the company behind Oasis at stake, Wade and his friends find that this treasure hunt has become all too real and they must fight to be the first to discover the hidden secrets of Oasis to protect the virtual world that they love.

Where's Our Secret Of Mana Remake Review?

Where's Our Secret Of Mana Remake Review?

The Secret of Mana remake is launching in mere hours. You’ll notice reviews are starting to pop up, but ours isn’t ready yet. I’ve played a large chunk of the remake, but feel I need more time to assess how it measures up to the original and what it offers modern gamers. I adore Secret of Mana, but this remake has me conflicted over the design decisions. 

The colorful world and music still are alluring, but the voice acting leaves much to be desired, often making scenes feel unnatural. I would recommend playing without the voice acting. The A.I. has also been a problem for me, as I’ve had to babysit them constantly and even watched them run into walls on a few occasions. I’ve also had some technical stutters interrupt the action. I’m planning to play more co-op to see if that eases some of my frustrations, but you should always be able to play alone without the A.I. becoming an obstacle. I’m also taking time to go back to the original to see just how directly it's ported. 

Rumor: Sicario 2 Director Penned For Call Of Duty Film Adaptation

Rumor: Sicario 2 Director Penned For Call Of Duty Film Adaptation

We recently discussed how video game-to-film adaptations usually fall through the cracks with rare exceptions, such as the Five Nights at Freddy's film adaptation finding a director recently. Call of Duty is another property that's been simmering in Hollywood for almost a decade, but it seems that dormant projects like this are starting to come back to life.

Variety says that the multi-billion dollar juggernaut has allegedly found a director in Stefano Sollima: an Italian film and TV director who's currently working on the action-packed film Sicario 2: Soldado, featuring Josh Brolin and Benecio del Toro. Activision Blizzard Studios - a fairly new division that has worked on the Netflix series Skylanders Academy - would be developing the Call of Duty movie with a script penned by Snowden writer Kieran Fitzgerald.

There have been talks among Activision Blizzard Studios' presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk about developing a cinematic universe for Call of Duty in an interview with The Guardian, which would connect disparate films inspired by the likes of Black Ops and Modern Warfare with potential ideas for a Band of Brothers-esque television series. As for Sollima's supposed involvement with a film helmed by him, details are currently nonexistent as the division declined to answer Variety.
