Marc Webb made music videos, and then he made 500 Days of Summer, and then he made The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of that feature movie franchise. But when Sony Pictures boss Amy Pascal offered him the Spidey gig, he called it "the stupidest idea I ever heard," Webb said today at SXSW in Austin.
In only a few years, Angry Birds has grown to be a phenomenon with a number of games, collectibles, a TV show, and even a movie in the works now. The game series doesn’t seem to be slowing down either with new updates coming to old games and completely new experiences like Angry Birds Go coming out as well. Now, Rovio has released a trailer called “The Next Epic Angry Birds Game…” This trailer starts by saying “The most exciting soft launch ever” and then seems to hint as a medieval theme with it slowly panning around a suit of armor, until the iconic red Angry Bird pops out of the top. It by saying that it will start in Canada and Australia and then move to other countries soon after. The question is whether this is just a regular type game with a medieval or fantasy setting or a spinoff of the series that could potentially be an RPG of some sort. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Folks who have managed to snag Titanfall early from retailers are saying players who grab Xbox One disc copies of the anticipated online title this week will need to download a relatively manageable 840mb patch before they can play it.
Japan is best known as the land of the samurai, birthplace of the conveyor belt sushi, a country where used panties can be bought from vending machines, and of course for being the mecca of video games. While one could talk about each of these topics at great length, we're here to talk about video games. Sadly, not all of the best games produced in the country make it over to the West.
The criteria for this list of Japanese games we want to see localised is as follows:
- One game per franchise.
- Must have released in Japan already and came out from 2010 onwards.This is an excerpt from the full story which was originally featured on gamrReview, read the full version here - Top 10 Games That Need to be Localized - Article
Get A Refurbished Wii U Deluxe From The Nintendo Store For Only $200 - Cheapest Wii U from official source you will likely find
For those still on the fence about getting a Wii U, the official Nintendo store online has a fantastic opportunity for you right now. You can get a refurbished Wii U Deluxe 32 GB console with Nintendo Land included for only $200. Normally a brand new version of this would cost you $299.99 or $250 for a refurbished model from the online store. So this is definitely good savings and the cheapest you will likely find a Wii U from an official source right now. The system comes with everything you would get in the original, including an HDMI cable, sensor bar, and more. This console will be eligible for the Deluxe Digital promotion as well. However, the only thing missing from this console is the ability to get Club Nintendo coins for registering it, which I think is a pretty fair trade-off for this price. If you are interested, check out the Nintendo store right here and put your order in since this is a very limited time offer!

Happy Saturday, everyone. Your usual Kotaku weekend editor, Owen Good, has made his exit from this esteemed site, and I, Phil Owen, am not his replacement. I am merely a temporary caretaker, and hopefully I can assist in helping you, dear reader, survive this weekend. So let us drive off this metaphorical cliff in an metaphorical expensive sports car and see what happens, just like Paul Walker and Vin Diesel would.
inFamous: Second Son is going to be a very fun and interesting game, but how long will it keep you busy? Sucker Punch Co-Founder Chris Zimmerman gave some more details during a livestream on Destructoid.
Zimmerman explained that the game's main story will last about 10-12 hours, depending on how fast you play and how many of the side stories you decide to complete. If you play the game as evil, it may last a little less. Of course this is for each playthrough, and since the story is very different depending on whether you play good or evil, the exact amount of time it takes to complete the game is much larger.
We also learnt more about one of the coolest elements in the game, environmental destruction. Not only are all the black and yellow elements in the game that belong to the DUP destructible, but they’re actually “perma-destructible”. If you take something down, it’ll stay down for the whole playthrough. This will influence the DUP strength and control percentage of each district.This is an excerpt from the full story which was originally featured on gamrReview, read the full version here - inFamous: Second Son Main Campaign Lasts 10-12 Hours - News
EA has announced that Titanfall will not be released in South Africa due to poor performance online from the beta. EA South Africa made the announcement on their Facebook page After conducting recent online tests for Titanfall, we found that the performance rates in South Africa were not as high as we need to guarantee a great experience, so we have decided not to release Titanfall in South Africa at this time. We understand this is a disappointment for local fans and will keep fans posted on any future plans regarding the release of Titanfall in South Africa There was not a local server for South African Titanfall players which could have contributed to its poor online performance. The game doesn’t have a local server for Australian and New Zealand gamers as of yet, but the game will still be released in these regions. Vincent Zampella did tweet that there is good news coming for Aussies very soon. Kiwis and Aussies might get a dedicated server for Titanfall after all… Sadly, this still means South African gamers have to miss out on the game entirely.
