If you’re a gaming fan who wants to see a good show inspired by a video game, then read this!

Welcome back dear readers to another edition of the Gaming Angel.  Over the years there have been many movie adaptations based on best selling video game titles.  Unfortunately, these adaptations have not been the best in the box office.  I share a few titles as an example:

-Super Mario Bros.
-Double Dragon
-Mortal Kombat- The sequel, the original was not too bad.
-Silent Hill- While the original was not too unbearable, Revelation however damaged the franchise to a point of no redemption.

So everyone is wondering if any film directors and writers will get it right.  Well fear not dear friends for there may be hope.  

Machinima has been posting shows inspired by video games, and it has created such a huge buzz in the gaming community.  They have a YouTube page with over 18 million views on their videos.  Take a look at this video of Mortal Kombat Legacy.

Let me know what games you would like to see developed into shows by Machinima.  As always your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.  Be sure to follow my blog folks and again thank you so much for your continued support.




Sly Cooper Thieves in Time Review: The old gang is back…in time!

sly-cooper-thieves-in-time-charactersWelcome back dear friends to my amazing blog.  With the sugary, sweet, diabetic inducing holiday of Valentine’s Day less than a week away, I figured a sweet review is more than deserved.

It has been nearly eight years since Sly Cooper 3 made it’s debut on the Playstation 2 console.  It left fans wondering if there would be another installment to this amazing franchise on the Playstation 3 console.  Well fear not because Sony is putting our worries at ease with the newest edition to the Sly Cooper franchise Sly Cooper Thieves in Time for the Playstation 3.

People have been very skeptical about this recent release since it was developed by Sanzaru and not Sucker Punch (developers of Sly 1-3).  So the question on everyone’s mind is, can Sanzaru pull off a beautiful game as well as Sucker Punch?  Let’s review shall we?

Graphics:  The graphics of Sly are definitely top notch.  The animated cut scene introduction is well done, not to mention funny.  The cell shaded detail of the characters will definitely have Sly fans jumping for joy.  Score: 9/10

Gameplay:  Believe it or not, fans will be praising Sanzaru for the keeping the old style gameplay of Sly and adding a few new tricks to the roster.  The difficulty of Sly is slightly amped, especially when it comes to finding the clue bottles to unlock the safe.  The story of Sly is beautifully done, and Sanzaru should be commended for keeping in the roots of the original story, and not getting lofty visions and coming out with some way out story that doesn’t make sense or damages the franchise.  Score: 9.5/10

Sound:  The original voices of the Sly Cooper gang are back in high gear along with a soundtrack that stays true to the theme of the Sly Cooper world.  A definite accomplishment.  Score: 9/10

Sanzaru did an excellent job at taking the helm where Sucker Punch left off.  Sly Cooper Thieves in Time is a definite must for those who have remained true to the series.

Final Score: 9/10
