BD Review: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)

For a movie based on a video game, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is full of heart-pounding action, but because it is a movie based on a video game there are plenty of moments full of cheese. This means it is a fun flick, not to be taken too seriously. To find out more, check out this review.

DVD Review: Hitman – Unrated

Hitman DVDWriter: Skip Woods
Director: Xavier Gens
Cast: Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Olga Kurylenko, Robert Knepper, Ulrich Thomsen
Rating: Unrated
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Release Date: March 11, 2008

Movies based on video games offer a sketchy chance at being a success. While the comic book movies do alright, when it comes to video games it seems that the studios making them do not see how important these characters are to the droves of fans that will be watching. Now, I have never played Hitman, but I was anxious to see this movie because I wanted to see how it would stack up.

Agent 47 is dynamic, sexy, and stiff in the ways that he is supposed to be. Perfectly timed, there is not a move out of place for him. He is disciplined, even when he is thinking of things that he shouldn’t be considering. The job is everything and in this case it works out because the acting shone and Agent 47 won me over.

Vin Diesel was originally set to star as Agent 47 and while I am sure I would have still been in the reviewer seat had that been the case, I have to say that Timothy Olyphant really did an amazing job here. The film manages to keep you on the edge of your seat (assuming you like action) without being overly ridiculous. Now, if you’re a video game purist I cannot promise that this movie is for you. However, if you’re just looking for a decent action flick then I am almost positive that Hitman won’t disappoint.

Requiem: Bloodymare Delivers Intense Experience for Mature Gamers


Requiem: Bloodymare Delivers Intense Experience for Mature Gamers

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — Jan. 3, 2007 — Gravity Interactive, developer and publisher of a wide variety of online games including both casual and hardcore MMOs, is bringing the bloody horror of Requiem: Bloodymare to the United States in early 2008. The title introduces a world where the misuse of science and magic has warped the natural world into a twisted vision of death.

Set in the world of Ethegia, players take on the role of the Temperions, beings created through genetic engineering and arcane rites to engage in bloody combat with the walking nightmares stalking the land.

Using the Havok engine, Requiem: Bloodymare brings to life a visually stunning realm where fallout from generations of scientific and mystical warfare has polluted the natural world and given birth to horribly mutated monsters. The battles between players and these grotesque creatures are rendered with intense sequences of bloody and gory graphics.

“We’ve dedicated more than four years of intense development to be sure Requiem: Bloodymare really brings something unique in the MMO market.” Peter Kang, CEO, Gravity Interactive, said. “We very consciously decided when we started the project that we wanted to diversify our offering to include much more than the cute, anime inspired gameplay of our previous hits. Requiem isn’t a game for kids; this is for mature players that are looking for hardcore content that conjures up their deepest nightmares and fears.”

Online Gaming Review: “Massive Assault Network 2″

Guest Post By: Jae

Have I mentioned that I am not a fan of online gaming? I have, and rarely does a game come forward to change my stubborn opinions. However, the creators of "Massive Assault Network 2" have managed to do just that.

Without jumping ahead, I should begin with the download and install. These are always important aspects to me, because it sends a first impression to the buyer. The download size is average, and I was delighted to find the game downloaded in a respectful amount of time. The install went in a similar fashion, no hassle, no fuss.

Once installed, I searched through the list of options and found the game could be completely personalized to the player’s taste. Sound and graphics options were numerous allowing you to find a comfortable rendition of "M.A.N. 2". Not only can it be easy on the eyes, but easy on your computer as well.

I began the game by working through the tutorials. I was greeted by a male voice with a funny accent. Although they were tedious in nature, they did provide a glimpse into the inner-workings of the game. The tutorials focus on the basics, and you will need a firm grasp on these if you wish to succeed in this game.
