Canceled Vol 6: A Maximum Letdown Special

Puhleeze.  Who wants a Hideo Kojima produced Silent Hill game written by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Norman Reedus anyway?

Puhleeze. Who wants a Hideo Kojima produced Silent Hill game written by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Norman Reedus anyway?


A few weeks ago, a potential classic, Silent Hills, was cancelled, and all trace of it was removed from the Playstation Network Store. What would have been a potential game changer for both the franchise and the survival horror genre in general is yet another case of what could have been. Although no definite reason was given for it, if you’ve kept up with the drama over the past few weeks, it’s evident that business politics, internal conflict, and the pending departure of Hideo Kojima all played into the cancellation. Sadly, Silent Hills isn’t the first high profile cancellation, nor will it be the last. Gaming’s history is rife with games that could have been classics being canceled due to a variety of reasons. I’ve done 5 previous installments on this subject alone.

$20 Game of the Week: Injustice – The Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition (PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360)

Note: The PS4 version of this title is free for the rest of January 2015 for PS+ members.

Injustice-Ultimate-Edition

Created by NetherRealm studios (the same people behind 2011’s blockbuster Mortal Kombat reboot), Injustice is the first good DC comics game that doesn’t have Batman in the title, nor involves legos. Injustice’s plot, gameplay, features, and character selection makes it the perfect game for both DC comics fans and fighting game aficionados alike. The Ultimate Edition sweetens the pot by adding all the dlc that was previously released from the game. That means you get all the extra costumes, extra characters, and Star Labs missions that were previously released.

Marvel and DC Movie Updates – DC Blinks, Moves Batman v Superman Release

Four months ago, after the success of the Captain America: Winter Soldier’s opening weekend, Marvel announced that Captain America 3 would be produced and released on May 6, 2016. This is the same date that DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film was slated. This was widely seen as shots fired across DC’s bow, whose film franchise plans depend widely upon the success of Batman v Superman. If DC has any hope of replicating Marvel’s film franchise success, it needs Batman v Superman to do well, as it will introduce, not only a new Batman (portrayed by Ben Affleck), but also Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) in a lead up to what is widely speculated to be a Justice League movie.

Today, in a move that has suprised few, DC and Warner Bros. have announced a new release date, March 25th, 2016.

Additionally, Warner Bros. announced 9 more theatrical release dates for as yet unnamed films. See them and more speculation after the break!

$20 Game of the Week/Maximum Letdown Special: A Midsummer’s Beatdown

As I type this, it’s a few days removed from America’s birthday. Which means leftover fireworks, leftover hot dogs, and public pools. More importantly, it’s the middle of summer. Which means the temperature is getting higher, and with those temperatures, tensions are getting higher. Eventually, with those high tensions, this will happen:

But why get into a real life brawl and risk ending up on worldstarhiphop.com when you can engage in some digital fisticuffs instead? This special edition of $20GOTW/Maximum Letdown takes a look at some of the best and worst fighting games of the recent and distant past, so click below and check it out.

New INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us trailer – The Line

A new trailer has surfaced for DC Entertainment’s new game INJUSTICE: Gods Among Us. This game is being done by Netherrealm, the same studio behind Mortal Kombat. This fighter features some of DC’s most well known characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Lex Luthor and many many more. This trailer gives us a little more insight into the story of the game. It has a very Crime Syndicate feel to it where all the heroes are more or less villains. The game will be coming out on April, 16th 2013.

I am definitely looking forward to it.

Powetcast 133: The Adam Expo

Adam went to Fan Expo in Toronto, and saw enough stuff that we spent most of the podcast grilling him on stuff he doesn’t quite understand. Hear him try to recall the premiere episodes of ‘Revolution’ and ‘Arrow’ as well as a round of Halo 4’s Infinity Slayer. Adam will also recount funny stories from John Barrowman and John Rhys Davies.

Rounding out the show, some discussion of the fate of the Justice League movie and whether Wonder Woman and Superman’s comic book kiss is even worth the publicity.

At the very last minute I remembered that we didn’t talk about Fall Of Cybertron. That will totally happen next week I promise.

Powetcast 107: Crisis Of Infinite Reboots

We already had our knee jerk reaction to the announcement, now comes the real deal: The Powetcast reacts to the new 52. The roundtable includes Zac Shipley, Captain Genius, Sean Orange, with special guest William West.

We’ll discuss our thoughts on the revamped DC Universe, theorize why some characters start from scratch and others don’t, and begrudgingly admit we all kinda like Rob Liefeld. We’ll also talk about the books that were worth reading and the ones we’re not going to continue on with #2.
