StarCraft Remastered announced for Summer 2017 release

Activision Blizzard will be releasing a remastered version of the original StarCraft game this summer.

The release reportedly features:

  • updated and enhanced graphics
  • Battle.net support
  • cloud saves
  • widescreen support up to 4K resolution
  • localization in 13 languages

The campaign will include all of the missions from the original release and the expansion pack, Brood War. The video above shows that this really is a facelift of the original game and not just a shoehorning of the old story into the StarCraft 2 game engine.

If you missed out on StarCraft 2, a new Battle Chest version is being released on March 31 (just a few days away!) containing all 3 campaigns (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void).

You can check out the press release for StarCraft Remastered after the jump.

The Disney Afternoon Collection Brings Home Nostalga This April


Older poweteers remember that during the 8 and 16 bit years, Capcom released several NES and SNES adaptations of various Disney properties of varying quality. The most well known of these games are a series of titles based upon Disney’s Weekday Afternoon cartoon block. This April, Capcom, along with Digital Eclipse, who released 2015’s Mega Man Legacy Collection, will release The Disney Afternoon Collection, a compilation of 6 NES games. The games include Duck Tales 1 and 2, Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers 1 and 2, Darkwing Duck, and Talespin. The games will feature a rewind button, concept art, boss rush, and time attack modes along with the original games. The compilation will be available on April 18th for $19.99 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No doubt this is going to bring back memories of after-school homework and cartoons for many a gamer.



Fox’s X-Men Show has Tentative Title

Fox’s X-Men Live action show has a title, although it may be changed by the time it airs. The show’s tentative title is called “Gifted”. Producer Lauren Shuler-Donner tweeted this photo of the show’s cast while revealing the title. The show follows a family that joins up with a mutant underground after discovering that the family’s children have mutant powers. The show seeks to tie into the larder X-men movieverse, as several familiar names from the comics have been cast such as Thunderbird, Blink and Polaris. As of now, there is no primere date set for the show.



Reservoir Dogs Video Game Take 2?


The original Reservoir Dogs was a heist movie that was also the first feature length film by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill, Django Unchained). The
last time there was a digital release of the film was a little over a decade ago in a forgettable Playstation 2 title. Later this year, Big Star Games (Fist of Jesus) will be releasing Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, a top down shooter for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The game looks like it will take some inspiration from Devolver’s Hotline Miami with its top=down shooting and gory violence. A feature called ‘Time Back’ hopes to set it apart from the competition. Players will control a team of up to 3 robbers, one after another. Once one person makes their move, the game will rewind, and players will take control of the second robber while the first carries out the previous actions. It’s reminiscent to games like Super Time Force and Frozen Synapse. While the game will feature none of the actor’s voices, distributor Lionsgate (who holds the rights to the film) is working closely with the game’s developer and is working with Tarantino to ensure he approves of the game. Later this year we’ll see if Big Fish can do the film justice. At the least it can’t be worse than the last time Reservoir Dogs hit gaming systems.



Patrick Stewart announces retirement from X-Men franchise

Source: Patrick Stewart’s Twitter

Patrick Stewart has announced that Logan will be the last X-Men movie he will appear as Professor Charles Xavier.

EW.com reports that the actor made the announcement on an SiriusXM Radio Town Hall, in which he appeared with the director of the film James Mangold and Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, who has repeatedly said that this will be his last film for the franchise as well.

Stewart is quoted as saying:

“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie,” said Stewart. “And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”

Toy Fair 2017: Tranformers Titans Return Trypticon

The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.

  • Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
  • Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
  • Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
  • No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
  • Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
  • Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.

Unicron.com got a great video interview with Hasbro designer, John Warden.

Here are the official renders of the figure from Hasbro:
