The character of Donkey Kong was forever changed by Rare’s 1994 landmark game Donkey Kong Country. The sleeker redesign by British software developers, working with extremely young CGI technology, became DK’s look henceforth. The game had a built-in excuse for the change in appearance: The goofy-looking ape we saw in the arcades was now Cranky Kong, and the new DK was his son/grandson (depending on the game).
Given how imminent the release of Stranger Things Season Two is, this is probably the last advance video clip we’re going to get before the season proper is out. It contains a pretty important plot point, though — Eleven’s escape from the Upside Down. The clip made its premiere at MCM Comic Con London, where it was introduced by Millie Bobby Brown herself.
Netflix has released a new Stranger Things-related video. As far as trailers go, it’s impossible to beat the Vincent Price Thriller narration from what came out during Comic-Con. That’s why this latest video from Netflix is more of a recap than a trailer.
The fact that the third Ring movie is being released in the winter makes me wary of its quality. We’re talking one of the most iconic horror characters in modern cinematic history, and she’s getting the January (almost) horror-dump treatment. if the film was any good, wouldn’t it have been released last October (when it was complete and originally scheduled to turn up)?
In these trying times, what we need most is more Rick and Morty. Unfortunately we still haven’t seen much of Season 3, and what we have seen is still in animatic and storyboard form. The following scene is no different, but it is the longest segment released yet.
A new horror-thriller, Deadly Intent, has now come across the shore from director Rebekah Fortune. The story revolves around the wife of a British soldier who lost him overseas. Deep in mourning, she tries to get over it and build a new life with their son….until the boy claims he’s actually seen his dad recently…..VERY recently.
There’s a horror movie coming out soon called Cute Little Buggers. Yes, it’s British — could you tell? It’s actually been in development for several years and this is just the latest trailer of many. Its makers describe it as “Gremlins meets Hot Fuzz set in the English countryside.”
Netflix still isn’t ready to show us anything from Season 2 of Stranger Things, but on this All Hallow’s Eve night, they did provide us with something: a supposed “archival newsreel from 5 WIYZ Hawkins, Indiana.” This should put those complaints about Barb’s disappearance being unnoticed to rest; if this is canon, it made the news. It’s odd, however, that a case of Eggo theft by a 12-year-old girl was deemed huge enough to be the next top story.
According to a new YouTube video from user MagicScrumpy, it’s possible to beat The Legend of Zelda in four minutes. This may be one of the most in-depth explanations of a glitch I’ve ever heard. You are told exactly what happens in specific terms, and it takes eleven minutes to explain in full. It’s okay if some of it goes over your head.
Did you like Netflix’s Stephen King love letter known as Stranger Things? (Of course you did; the only people who don’t are probably Nazis.) If you’ve finished the series, you’re probably starved for any morsel of new content relating to it (join the club). Well, there’s a BIT more out there, but it’s a different experience. Would you be willing to strap on VR goggles and put yourself right into the most iconic room from the series, at the moment it receives a special visitor?
In 2015 the world’s only known prototype for the SNES-CD, or Nintendo Playstation, was discovered at last. Shortly afterward, the BIOS files were dumped and the homebrew community got to work making a belated game library. The largest effort to date, Super Boss Gaiden, was finished not too long ago.
The twice-a-year charity marathon known as Games Done Quick has become the highlight of my week. Whenever it occurs, nothing else matters. Watching this nation’s top thumb jockeys make hash of the world’s best video games, live, is endlessly entertaining. And forget the computer browser — I plug in my Roku stick, boot up the Twitch app and watch as much as I can on the BIG SCREEN. It doesn’t disappoint.
