Capcom Japan Announces A New Biohazard Movie!

Better known as Resident Evil in the US, Capcom Japan just announced a new CG Biohazard movie for Japanese theaters. Leon S Kennedy will be kicking zombie (or other no longer human entity) into oblivion on October 27 in 2D and 3D! The last CG movie, Degeneration,  had sales of over 1.6 million worldwide, and hopefully this will do just as good. If you haven't seen RE (or Biohazard) Degeneration, it's like a long in game cutscene with much better acting. There's even a trailer with English subtitles on the official site!

God Of War Acension Is Official!

In quite possible one of the biggest game based "Oops, we should not have added that to the site yet" of the year, Sony had pretty much no other choice but to announce that yes, a fourth God of War game, will be released next year. Subtitled "Ascension"  and being marketed with the phrase "Before he was a God, he was a man", it sounds like a prequel, as there not to many Greek Gods left for Kratos to kill! On April 30th, The Playstation Blog will host a live stream with more info on this game. Source: Playstation Blog
