‘Hellboy Web of Wyrd’ Trailer Features Big Red Fist Fighting a Werewolf
Hellboy Web of Wyrd made its reveal. The all-new PC and Console based game is looking fantastic. Good Shepherd Entertainment and Dark Horse Comics is coming at us with a Mike Mignola art-directed game. This thing looks like it was torn directly from the pages of Mignola’s comics.
The synopsis for Hellboy Web of Wyrd goes like this:
Welcome to the Butterfly House, a mysterious manor of perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometry built by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux to open a gateway to the Wyrd, a vast, interdimensional web of wondrous and horrifying planes of existence beyond our world. When a B.P.R.D. agent vanishes inside the mansion, it’s up to Hellboy and his team of agents to uncover its forbidden secrets.
Journey into the deepest realms of the Wyrd, each hiding a unique investigation into the unknown. Battle powerful creatures in search of forgotten godforms and magnificent treasures, but beware: ancient evil festers within the Wyrd’s darkest reaches… evil that wants out.
The game’s features breakdown like this:
- An Authentic Comic Adaptation: Experience gripping storytelling, visuals and atmosphere that evoke the distinct style of the original comics, crafted in collaboration with series creator Mike Mignola. Every moment looks and feels like it was ripped right from the comics.
- A New Story Inspired by the Hellboy Universe: Unravel a sprawling, spine-tingling original adventure true to the spirit of the comics and brought to life with the illustrious voice of Lance Reddick as Hellboy.
- Become the Legendary Hellboy: Explore the secret depths of the Wyrd, discovering wonders and terrors beyond your imagination. Chain together hard-hitting melee and ranged attacks in challenging combat against a nightmarish menagerie of otherworldly monsters to survive.
“We are extremely excited by this amazing new Hellboy game developed by Good Shepherd Entertainment,” said Mike Richardson, CEO of Dark Horse Media. “Mike Mignola has created a hero and world unique in comics, and this game gives fans a new way to share in his supernatural adventures.”
There is still no release date set for Hellboy Web of Wyrd but we will let you know the details as soon as we get them.
Hellboy Web of Wyrd is coming to PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
‘Alan Wake 2’ Receives First Mindbending, Terrifying Trailer
Remedy Entertainment gives us some of the best games to date. I mean, Control and Alan Wake alone are spectacular. Now, the first peek at the sequel to Alan Wake is giving us a very different game with a lot of really scary shit going on.
The first Alan Wake back in 2010 took us down a very dark path where a writer explored a town that gave us some very big David Lynch Twin Peak vibes. Over time, it became clear that supernatural elements were at work… or maybe it was all in Alan’s head and he was writing the entire game as you played it… the game is really good and if you haven’t played it yet make your way back and get to it before the second one comes out.
The synopsis for Alan Wake 2 goes like this:
A string of ritualistic murders and a supernatural darkness begin to corrupt the locals of the quirky, idyllic small town of Bright Falls. Can FBI agent Saga Anderson and Alan Wake break free from the desolate horror story they’re trapped in and be the heroes they need to be?
Alan Wake 2 arrives beginning October 17.
‘Mortal Kombat 1’ Trailer Brings Us to a New Age of Brilliant Head-Smashing and Gut-Spewing
Mortal Kombat returns with a side-splitting and bone-crunching trailer for the new game. Along with that, we are going back to what fans love about the game. In fact, the game’s title is Mortal Kombat 1. A definite callback to the origin and roots of the franchise. All that with updated, groovy graphics. Perhaps one of the most interesting parts of the game is the lineup of stars that have been called in to voice these characters. More on that part soon.
In the meantime let’s get a look at this brilliant trailer. It reveals choices and paths to take. Good and evil, violent or tame. An interesting turn and we want to see how this pans out and what the game itself does to utilize it. I mean… how exactly do you display choices in a fighting game?
What do you think about the direction that Mortal Kombat is headed with this entry? Let us know in the comments section.
Mortal Kombat 1 arrives beginning September 19.
Spirit Halloween Funko Exclusive: ‘Corpse Bride’ Victor & Emily
Although Tim Burton didn’t quite capture the magic of his 1993 classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, his spiritual follow-up The Corpse Bride (2005) still remains a fan favorite among dedicated niche Burton fans.
In honor of those devoted collectors, Spirit Halloween and Funko have teamed up for this exclusive Victor and Emily Movie Moment Funko POP! Figure. The scene features a Victor Van Dort Funko holding hands with an Emily Funko in the forest while his now revived dog Scraps watches on.
Although the film will always be in its predecessor’s shadow, Corpse Bride was a technological marvel in its own right. It was the first film to use commercial digital photography instead of traditional film. Unlike Nightmare, in which the puppet’s facial expressions were swapped out between frames, Bride incorporated hidden keys within the heads which smoothed out some of the jerky motions associated with earlier animations of its type.
Although The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a seasonal favorite, even taking over Disneyland’s The Haunted Mansion with a seasonal overlay, The Corpse Bride did better at the box office. Whereas the former made over $91M worldwide back in 1993, Bride raked in over $118M.
