The story begins as a case of missing children. One child says she saw what happened but police dismiss her eyewitness account. But not everybody ignores her. Jung Yeo-Wool listens because she also saw a lady in a red dress when her sister died.
In “Vigilante”, Kim Ji-Yong is a top student in the police academy. But when we first meet him, he is a young child sitting in a courtroom. His mother was the victim of a violent crime but the criminal was sentenced to only 3 and a half years. Why? Well! Because he didn’t really have the “intention” to commit the crime? WHAT?
Most of you are familiar with Gurren Lagann as an anime, but not as many might know it was also a movie. Well, in a sense — Gurren Lagann: The Movie is one of those deals where anime footage was re-edited and re-cut into a feature. It’s more than you think, though: the story takes place across two films, not one, and both halves contain over 20 minutes of new material.
Just about everyone had to get their time in during last night’s Game Awards — the schedule was so packed that even big outfits like Square only had time to show two trailers. They were big ones, however — one is a new look at their most anticipated title of 2024 and the other is the revival of a beloved series that hasn’t had a new entry in at least 15 years.
One of the many, many surprises of last night’s Game Awards was Anthony Mackie, star of Peacock’s Twisted Metal TV series, walking onstage and confirming a second season of the show after performing a weird act where he pointed and made random noises at various crowd members. We didn’t get what that was about, but more TM is fine with us.
Lately The Game Awards has become far more trailer than show, with host Geoff Keighley having to speed through a lot of categories tonight just to fit in all the announcements, commercials and paid stunts. It’s become a compact E3 of sorts, except it takes place within just three hours’ time.
If it seems like Nintendo doesn’t update the N64 portion of their NSO library as often as the other categories, that’s because they don’t. The N64’s library simply wasn’t as large as that of their previous systems, the NES, SNES and Game Boy. But then you have moments like tonight, when five minutes into the Game Awards, Nintendo dropped THREE N64 games into NSO.
Game developer Orange Popcorn has announced their new Metroidvania action title, Hunter X: code name T (the lower case is part of the official spelling), will launch on Steam in just a few days.
In “My Demon”, there is a demon named Jeong Gu-Won who hides his age well. By looking at him, you would not know that he was about 200 years old. That’s how long he has been making deals with humans. He grants their wishes and they can live the life they please for 10 years. When the time is up, they have to pay up, per the contract.
The next Crunchyroll Anime Awards will be held in Tokyo this coming March. The recipients of said awards will be chosen much like they were last year: over 100 figures from in and around the anime industry will choose nominees, and anime fans from around the world will vote on which ones win. The complete list of categories was revealed today, and it includes three new ones: Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Slice of Life.
Free League once partnered with illustrator Simon Stålenhag to bring his book Tales From The Loop to life. The tabletop game became one of their biggest sellers, so why not try it again? Free League has announced a new RPG based on a different Stålenhag book, The Electric State. Its crowdfunding campaign launched on Kickstarter today and reached its goal in minutes.
