Last week it was announced that Paramount had regained the rights to the Friday The 13th franchise, and they have a five year window to make things happen. I’m not sure if this means that the rights will expire if they don’t make a movie in the next five years (deals like this are common) or if they simply have five years to make as many of these suckers as they can. If the latter is the case, and if their initial foray is lucrative enough, they can certainly get four out there if they follow the “one a year” release pattern from the 80′s.
It’s too late for them to make one in time for December 13th of this year, so I imagine that they’ll be aiming for the next available date – June 13th, 2014 – which gives them some time to get it right. While I genuinely dug the 2009 remake (and wouldn’t at all mind getting that rumored Shannon/Swift snowbound sequel), there are some ground rules we need to establish before moving forward in order to ensure we get the best F13 possible.

It’s all conjecture, but judging by the images Climax Studios — the dev behind Silent Hill: Origins and Shattered Memories — has been trickling out via their Facebook page, it looks like their next game may be of the horror persuasion… and maybe set in a dollhouse. I can see it, dollhouses are creepy.
Now, it’s “unannounced” so for all we know this could be a post-apocalyptic Barbie adventure game. It has a nebulous ’2013′ release window, so my guess is they’re waiting to announce it at E3, but I could be wrong, the reveal could be a ways off. Check out some images (not sure if they’re screenshots, promotional art, concept art, or none of the above) after the jump. READ MORE
HBO has released two new clips from the upcoming 56th episode of “True Blood”, “Somebody I Used To Know.” They are respectively titled “Glimmer Of Hope” and “What Happened?” Which is something I’d like to know. I tried to follow this season for you guys – I really did. I made it about 4 episodes in before I had to pull the plug. I get why a lot of people like it, but they must see something in it that I can’t.
In episode #56, “At Authority headquarters, the Chancellors revel in the afterglow of recent events; Eric gets a message from Godric; Bill is shaken by a distant memory. Helped by Claude and his sisters, Sookie and Jason visit the site of their parents’ deaths, with shocking results. An emotional Luna tries to walk in Sam’s shoes. Hoyt’s new pals bring him a present; Lafayette leads a séance to purge a curse; J.D. ups the stakes of his fight with Alcide.”
Tune in to the new season every Sunday night at 9PM, only on HBO. Head inside for the clips! READ MORE
A batch of new screenshots for the recently re-announcedDead Island have surfaced and they’re looking decidedly badass. Any zombie game with electric machetes and fat zombies that may or may not explode leaving you covered in a thick coat of undead giblets has my attention.
These aren’t the first screenshots we’ve seen, a few weeks back we received our first glimpse of what the game will actually look like. So I highly suggest you head past the break for another look at what we can expect from the game. READ MORE
It’s understandable if you missed the awards show this year, perhaps you were busy reading a particularly interesting book, watching a good movie or simply had better things to do. I don’t blame you for having a life but it’d be a shame to miss out on all the goods this year’s VGAs had to offer. Many we expected, some were rumored and a few managed to surprise (Elder Scrolls V!).

I really hope you’re not getting overhyped for Dead Space 2 because I have this snazzy new trailer for you to feast your hungry eyes upon. It features the Sprawl space station where the game takes place and if the trailer below is anything to go by the game looks to have shaped up quite nicely.
Pretty cool, right? And in related news it would seem the game will be longer than its predecessor and might not even have load times (so say goodbye to the tram from the original). Pretty impressive. Dead Space 2 releases on January 25th for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. READ MORE
