When producer Suda 51 works on a game, the last thing you should really come to expect is normalcy.  For years, he’s been adding some crazy touches to his games, whether it was wielding the “Big Boner” in Shadows of the Damned or slicing an enemy in half with a lightsaber in No More Heroes before performing a peculiar sexual motion to recharge it.  Now we have Lollipop Chainsaw, his latest effort, one in which he teams up with Super director James Gunn to deliver a game experience so far tongue in cheek, it practically rips through the other side.  But, relax, that’s a good thing.

Before the New York Giants defeat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI (at least according to the Madden NFL 12 simulation), EA Sports is throwing its annual videogame bash at the Bud Light Hotel.

For fighting fans, a FightStick is usually standard stuff.  You see pros nowadays carrying big bulky FightSticks under their arms to tournaments, taking out the trash in Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat with their own weapon of choice.  But Hit Box has begun working on a new FightStick model that could change the way these folks play fighting games, for the better.  The first step?  Getting rid of the stick entirely.

Have you ever wanted to know virtually everything there ever was that went into creating one of the worst movies ever made? Do you just yearn to know why normally smart people make some stupid decisions that result in a hot steaming mess of personified WTF? Do you at all wax nostalgic for the 90's, a time when bad movies had some type of special I don't know what that make them somehow infinitely enjoyable in a way that science has as of yet failed to quantify? Then baby, do I have an interview to show you.


Suda 51 must be having a field day with his game projects right now.  His last game release, the underrated but thoroughly enjoyable Shadows of the Damned, allowed him to collaborate with Akira Yamaoka (of Silent Hill fame) and Shinji Mikami (of Resident Evil fame) on a completely unique storyline, an effort that has paid off creatively, if not commercially.  Now his next project has been set in stone, and it's teaming him up with a very unlikely that should definitely pay off when WB Games releases it next year.


These days, not as many actors get involved in video game movies. But Sega has had great luck casting its last two Marvel video games, Thor and now Captain America -- both of which are playable in 3D like the  movies. Even with the lead actor, Chris Evans, not being interested in games at all, they were able to get the real Captain America to provide the lines in the new Captain America: Super Soldier game. Evans was able to talk about his video game work before descending on San Diego Comic-Con to give fans an exclusive first look at the movie.

Actress Hayley Atwell, who stars in Captain America: The First Avenger on the big screen and in the new Sega game, talks about the super hero in this exclusive video interview.


Captain America is everywhere today. After invading Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego with a world premiere showing to fan boys, the 3D movie has moved on to the rest of the planet. One of the film’s main stars, Sebastian Stan ("Gossip Girl"), is starring in both the big screen First Avenger movie and Sega’s Captain America: Super Soldier game as Bucky Barnes. In both the film and the game, Barnes helps Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans) take out the Red Skull’s bad guys. Stan talks about his first video game experience in this exclusive video interview.


With Captain America: The First Avenger in movie theaters around the world today and Sega’s tie-in, Captain America: Super Soldier, available for all platforms; the synergy for Marvel Entertainment’s newest mainstream property is perfect. In fact, Captain America has taken over Comic-Con 2011 to fan boys' delight. But all signs are pointing to Captain America being the last Marvel movie that will be licensed out to an external company like Sega. The Walt Disney Company purchased Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion and now its game division, Disney Interactive Media Group (DIMG), is heading up all video game projects.


Fans at San Diego Comic-Con got a first look at Marvel Entertainment’s Captain America: The First Avenger movie before anyone else in the world.
