Grain of salt everybody.
Boom! Studios founder "Andrew Cosby" semi-confirmed that he is working with Netflix and Blizzard on an animated Diablo TV series for the streaming service.
A TV series has been rumored for 2 years now, with Netflix saying they were interested in creating one.
Andrew Cosby made a name for himself when he was tasked with writing the Hellboy remake set to release soon.
In a now deleted Tweet, Andrew said
I guess I can confirm I am indeed in final talks to write and show-run the new DIABLO animated series for Activision and Netflix. It’s very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.
Its worth noting that in the "biz" the term "final talks" doesn't really mean a whole…Continue

It was reported last year that Telltale Games, makers of many narrative adventure games, laid off 90 employees due to years of mismanagement.
It is being reported today that Telltale Games is closing its doors for good according to multiple sources. The former employees have taken to social media exclaiming that they do not have jobs any more.
Telltale was created in 2004 by former LucasArts employees. Its first game "Telltale Texas Hold'em" was a poker simulator that was released under the radar. They didn't really get big until 2012 when they release of "The Walking Dead". From there they blew up, releasing more games under different licenses, including "Minecraft" and "Batman".
With their success came some blow back. Reports of work place drama and unfair work…Continue

I need a few days to really have this sink in. My opinion is very cloudy, I want to hate this but something in me is resisting that hate. What do you think? here is the first look of Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker...
Although I mention the word 'hate' in this article but I have to say that I love Joaquin Phoenix as an actor. So I am giving this a chance, this could be really good.

Blizzcon, the annual event that celebrities everything Blizzard Entertainment, is right around the corner - Nov 2nd and 3rd.
So let the leaks commence by none other than Goldman Sachs... ?
Yup, the first bit of leakage comes from the mega bank Goldman Sachs. They predict that Blizzcon 2018 is going to see the announcement of Diablo 4, the much talked about - but kept under the rug - Blizzard mobile title, and a possible Overwatch expansion.
We know for a fact that Blizzard is going to announce Hero 29. Why wouldn't they? Its Blizzcon! And since Wow is deep into their latest expansion, there won't be any significant WoW news to be overshadowed. I am sure they are going to announce the next big content update, but nothing else. So it would make sense to announce something as huge…Continue

Download Japaneses NES (Famicom) games
Why would you do this? Easy, the Famicom console had additional sound chips in the system, making the sound effects and the music to a lot of games sound a heck of a lot better over their NES counter parts. Take Legend of Zelda for example. The Famicom system had more instruments in the music, making the music much better over the NES counter-part. Also, Super Mario Bros 3 was way harder on the Famicom than it was on the NES. Nintendo dumbed down the game when they released it internationally. The most important though, the Japanese box arts are just plain freaking cooler than the American…Continue
PlayStation has surprisingly entered the retro gaming console arena with the PlayStation Classic.
As expected, it's quite smaller than the original and is fueled by emulation.
It will come with 20 games, 5 of which they've already announced.
- Final Fantasy 7
- Jumping Flash
- Ridge Racer Type 4
- Tekken 3
- Wild Arms
Now, I grew up with the PlayStation and can say that I'm not excited about the games lineup. However I would totally be down to get this as a decorative piece. Perhaps when the other 15 games are announced I'll change my mind. As for now, this is one category that Nintendo does best.
Here's the announcement video:
What do YOU think? Is PS1 too new to be…Continue
