10:06AM - Anyone Going to Penguicon?
My Dude's in a movie that's screening all three days. Go here and look for Thac0: The Movie. It's hilarious, and two of the stars will be in attendance at various showings (sadly, I can't attend). The movie was a HUGE hit at last year's CONvergence, so hopefully it will make a similar splash!
Mr. T and Will Wright join forces to battle Nazis!
With Prison Break nearing completion, ZootFly today announced it secured the official Mr. T graphic novel license from Mohawk Media.
ZootFly will develop a series of games packed with the trademark over-the-top adrenaline-pumping action of Mr. T.
The games will feature knuckle-whitening action-adventure, furious brawler combat, gravity-defying platforming, and environmental puzzles.
The first game will see Mr. T take on Nazis and their gigantic machines in the varied universe of South American rain forests, lost ancient cities, industrial complexes and contemporary military installations.
Along with Mr. T and other characters from the graphic novel, the game will feature none other than Will Wright. In this universe, Will Wright is not a top-notch game designer but a top-notch American geneticist who was kidnapped and coerced to work on a diabolic plan. Mr. T and Will Wright will join forces to annihilate the Nazis and their hardware.
Platforms include PS3, Xbox360, Wii and PC.
9:05PM - Elder Scrolls novel set for Autumn 2009
I'm not sure how many Elder Scrolls fans we have on JF, but I've seen at least one person around here with an Oblivion icon, so...
Bethesda Softworks and Del Ray Books are releasing the first of (several?) novels based on the Elder Scrolls games. The first, The Infernal City, will be released this autumn.
I've been with this game series since Arena came out in 1992 - I'm excited, but nervous. ES has an incredibly rich backing of lore, and it's time it was used. The blurb sounds a little weird, but we'll see.
There is also a thread regarding this on the official Elder Scrolls forums.
