The Quarantine Stream: ‘Mortal Kombat’ is an Awesomely Bad Bargain Bin Blockbuster

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game’ is Finally Returning After Disappearing Six Years Ago

Back when Scott Pilgrim vs the World arrived in theaters in 2010, Ubisoft released a video game in conjunction with Edgar Wright‘s big screen adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novel series. It was a classic side-scrolling, beat-’em up kind of game featuring a retro arcade style with character and level designs that echoed the art from the graphic novels. Fans loved it, but if you didn’t buy it before the end of 2014, then it was nearly impossible to get ahold of because the game disapp...

The Art Of Control ( Remedy Entertainment Video Game )

Having just finished the most excellent Naughty Dog game The Last Of Us II, I’m now fully immersed in Control, an action adventure game by Remedy Entertainment.

Control revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that vio...

Hades Game Trailer – Studio Grackle

Check out this short but nonetheless very impressive animated trailer for Hades, a Nintendo Switch game developed by Supergiant Games, with animation by Studio Grackle – The smooth and snappy animation is certainly one of the highlights, but I also dig the great camera moves, the framing and composition of the shots and the editing, all which work together nicely to create this great piece.

‘Pretending I’m a Superman’ Wanders Erratically Through the Origin and Legacy of ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater launched on the original PlayStation in the fall of 1999, delivering a skateboarding video game that was easy to learn, fun to play, and captured the spirit and attitude of the extreme sport, from the t-shirts and cargo pants of the skaters to the indie punk rock soundtrack.

Netflix’s ‘High Score’ Doc Series Recalls Video Game History and Shines a Light on Lesser Known Pioneers and Players

There are numerous video game documentaries out there. But the problem with a lot of them is they’re either not so easy to find on streaming services or physical media, aren’t very well-produced, or they only focus in on one small sector of the gaming world (though those can also be very good). Netflix is here to solve all of those problems with their outstanding new limited documentary series High Score.

‘The Cuphead Show!’ Sneak Peek: Netflix Teases the Nostalgic Design of Its Video Game Adaptation

Netflix’s upcoming animated series The Cuphead Show! has a bit of an unusual background: its retro Max Fleischer-inspired style would have you thinking that it’s a modern remake of a 1930s classic, when in fact it’s an adaptation of a 2017 video game. Developed by Canadian video game developer StudioMDHR, Cuphead is a run-and-gun video game that was inspired by the rubber hose style of animation used in cartoons of the 1930s, and built some of the surreal elements of the animation into its game...
