Monster Hunter: World is now Capcom’s Highest Selling Title


In what is most certainly a shock for the company, Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World has surpassed 7.5 million units sold, making it the companies highest selling home console game of all time. This number beats out the likes of the biggest in the Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man series of games.

Good gameplay and a massive online presence built on collaboration has given the game fantastic word of mouth across both the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down despite competition.

Metal Gear Survive Launch Trailer

Konami has released the launch trailer for Metal Gear Survive, which is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The trailer gives us a new, albeit late, look at many of the bosses and larger creatures that fill the wasteland of the dystopian world.

The trailer shows plenty of gameplay footage that spotlights playing online with friends, and defending your base from the zombie-like enemies of the game. While not a Metal Gear game in spirit, there appears to be some details that stayed from past games… like balloons? So, check this one out of your own volition.

Suda51’s The 25th Ward: The Silver Case Heading to America

It’s always been pretty unlikely we would ever see it, but NIS America announced during its Press Event 2018 that Suda51’s visual novel adventure game, The 25th Ward: The Silver Case, will release in North America and Europe on March 13th and 16th, respectively. The game is set to release for PlayStation 4, and PC.

It has been five years since the events of 1999’s The Silver Case set in the new 25th Ward that arose in the bayside area of Kanto. In a room of the “Bayside Tower Land” apartment complex, a woman is found murdered under mysterious circumstances. This sets off a series of seemingly random events bridging across multiple protagonists including The Silver Case’s Tokio Morishima. With all viewpoints assembled, a truly shocking pattern emerges…

First Teaser Trailer for Tom Hardy’s Venom

Sony Pictures has shared the first teaser trailer for Venom, starring Tom Hardy. The trailer gives us our first proper look at Hardy’s interpretation of Eddie Brock, as well as his attempt at a New York accent, but it doesn’t give us much in the way of Venom himself.

We get a shot of the symbiote, in the hands of what appears to be a corporate guy, played by Riz Ahmed (Star Wars: Rogue One), insinuating he’s not Carnage after all. As well as our first look at 4x Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams (Marilyn, Blue Valentine) in her mystery role, as well. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding this film, but hopefully it gets cleared up in the months to come.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Trailer

Arguably the biggest trailer release during my hiatus was the surprising unveiling of the first trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, the long-awaited animated film featuring the feature-debut of Miles Morales as Spider-Man.

The film looks visually stunning with an artistic style none were expecting from a large-scale film such as this. It’s absolutely worth checking out, and already one of my most anticipated films of 2018.

Morbius The Living Vampire Spin-Off Now in the Works

In the comics, Michael Morbius is a brilliant doctor with a rare blood disease, and after attempting to cure it, inadvertently receives superpowers, and a thirst for blood.

Spider-Man Story Trailer

Sony has unveiled a new trailer, finally giving us a hint as to what we can expect from the story for Insomniac’s long-awaited Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4. In the game, Spider-Man has successfully put away The Kingpin, and is now thinking about hanging up the costume, but the appearance of Mr. Negative throws a kink in his plans.

The gameplay looks fast and frenetic, and absolutely like a wonderful Spider-Man game, full of color and brightness. Spider-Man hits in 2018.

Venom to Come to Life Through Motion Capture


Motion capture pioneer, Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes, Lord of the Rings) has spilled the beans that Tom Hardy will be bringing Venom to life through the use of motion capture technology, marking a coup for the technology’s usage.

“The time has come that people understand that performance capture is a technology, not a genre of acting,” Serkis said. “Acting is acting, and the more actors – like Steve Zahn… and Karin Konoval who plays Maurice in ‘War For The Planet of the Apes’ – the more A-list actors that come on board, like Mark Rylance playing ‘The BFG,’ or a lot of actors in the new Marvel films… Tom Hardy is playing a new character using performance capture. It all points up ‘what is the nature of acting?’ and there is no difference between acting wearing a costume and make up, or wearing a motion capture suit. That’s plain and simple, it just needs awarding bodies to understand that.”
