‘District 9’ Director Neill Blomkamp’s Game ‘Off the Grid’ Teaser is Ready for Battle

Published

on

Grid

Neill Blomkamp’s films have pushed both the limits of technology and FX. Each film has looked like they were right out of a video game. The weapons in Elysium, Chappie and District 9 have looked like they would be great to use in video games. It looks like the director will be putting all of that aesthetic to work soon with a new game being developed by both himself and Gunzilla Games.

Off the Grid is set to reinvent battle royale as a whole. It sets out to create an experience that is part single player narrative progression, part multiplayer battle royale with 150 players all going PVP and even player versus environment sections. The battlefield is also set to be changing throughout base don the players actions.

Grid

Off the Grid’s official description goes like this:

Dive into the heat of a covert corporate war in Off The Grid, a cyberpunk Battle Royale 2.0 multiplayer shooter where you shape the story and the gameplay. Unfolding on a dystopian tropical island, OTG sends you on head-spinning assassination and sabotage missions to the greater glory and market share of your chosen faction. Tool up for 2023: it’s about to get bloody!

“With OTG, our ambition is not only to create the Battle Royale 2.0 by adding deep player progression, but to build an evolving world designed to take on a life of its own, changing in unexpected ways each time a player rejoins the game.” Blomkamp said. “With an innovative approach to the Battle Royale core session flow and a deep narrative experience, we add purpose to each element of the game, allowing players to revisit the OTG world repeatedly where there is always something new to find and explore, and for us to expand upon.”

Well, Off the Grid just shot up on our list of most anticipated games. For now, it is promising a lot and its honestly nothing that feels concrete. But, I’m mainly paying attention to the fact that Blomkamp is involved and I’ve always wanted him to make a video game.

If you haven’t seen his shorts on OATS Studios, you should watch those asap (they are on Netflix). Each one could be its own video game. Especially one titled Firebase. Some really brilliantly fun sci-fi horror stuff.

We will have to wait to see what happens next with Off the Grid. We will be sure to keep you updated with all things as they arrive.

‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ Trailer Rolls a Natural 20

Published

on

Dungeons

The latest trailer for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves could have gone one of two directions. It could have gone in a very serious Game of Thrones-like take on the world or to be a silly billy and play a campaign; that would be the equivalent of you playing D&D drunk with friends. The Chris McKay-written film decided to go with the latter. McKay also wrote, The Lego Movie to give you an idea of how he is a master of making seemingly impossible franchises a blast. He looks to have added a whole lot more of his wit and personality to this one. The result isn’t going to make all D&D fans happy but it certainly made this one more than happy.

There isn’t a correct way to make a Dungeons and Dragon film. The game itself is relative to the players that are involved. I have played hardcore serious matches and I have played Taco Bell and Vodka night games. And not gonna lie the Taco Bell and Vodka nights were always more fun and memorable. Also, Hugh Grant. That is all… Hugh Grant.

Dungeons

The synopsis for Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves goes like this:

A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.  Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.

The film stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head and Hugh Grant.

Prepare your D20 die when Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves arrives in theaters March 31.

Published

Lucy

Ruby was undoubtedly one of Ash Vs Evil Dead’s coolest and most interesting characters. Ruby drove around in a muscle car in search of the Necronomicon and Deadites. She, much like Ash had been touched by the darkness and had been transformed into a deadite in the past. So, she was a bit of a wildcard. Well, Lucy Lawless’ character Ruby is heading to Evil Dead: The Game and we can’t wait.

Ruby

The synopsis for Evil Dead: The Game goes like this:

“Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ biggest names together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four Survivors to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon – or become the Demon yourself, using its powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls! Choose your squad with fan-favorite characters from every era in the series, and battle with a wide variety of weapons to survive the night in multiplayer and bonus single-player missions.

Ruby will come with her own perks and abilities which will add to your team’s tactical play style.

Lollipop

Dragami Games has shared the first official peek at the upcoming remake of Lollipop Chainsaw. The awesome over-the-top cheerleader/zombie slayer game was a collaboration between James Gunn and Suda 51. During its release in 2012, Lollipop Chainsaw saw a cult like status. Over the years the game has retained its fans. That’s why Dragami Games is working on an updated remake in order to give us a next-gen experience.

We can’t wait to see the full game in action, but for now the developers gave us a peek at the upcoming rad remake.

In the photo, we get a side-by-side of its zombie-slaying cheerleader, Juliette Starling. On the left, we can see the original and on the right the updated version. It appears that not a lot is changing. Juliette appears to be a lot paler now and doesn’t seem to be wearing as much makeup as before. She also has a slight update in her texture.

This is only a sneak peek of what’s to come. So, we will be sure to keep you updated on any and all updates that come our way.

How many of you played the original Lollipop Chainsaw? Let us know in the comments section.
