Criterion Reportedly Not Doing NFS: Underground Remake

Rumors of another reboot in the Need for Speed franchise have now been debunked by Criterion Games Creative Director Alex Ward.  Originating from EGM, rumor had it that a reboot of NFS: Underground was in the works. 

The rumor itself seemed plausible given the previous NFS reboots that have been released in recent years and reportedly jived with tidbits EGM had heard about such a thing. Though now it seems like the rumor is nothing but bunk.

First Set Pics From Need For Speed: The Movie

Out of all the properties that Electronic Arts has, none other than Need for Speed was the first one to successfully make the leap to Hollywood.  After failing to get projects off the ground such as a film adaptation of Dead Space, EA was able to sell the film right for NFS to DreamWorks and now filming is finally underway.

Battlefield 4 Debut Footage Shows Shooting, Explosions, and Forced Drama [Video]

As expected, EA went on to announce Battlefield 4 in a grand fashion last night to live up to the popularity the series has gained for the past decade or so.  The existence of a new Battlefield game isn’t too much of a shocker considering we’ve known about it since BF3 was released and it has been incessantly teased for the last week or so. 

So other than not knowing how far DICE was aiming to push the visual bar and up the action, it was business as usual for the Battlefield franchise and that’s apparent in this rather dull gameplay footage.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Set To Include Notable Hip-Hop Duo

If you’re a fan of rappers being shoe-horned into video games then you’re in luck as EA has acquired some talent to appear in one of their forthcoming games.  For whatever reason they may have, EA has decided to put acclaimed rapper Big Boi, formerly of Outkast, and B.O.B. in Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. 

Not only will the duo contribute an original song in the third AoT entry, but they will also appear in the game - not just as bonus skins but as original characters. Yes, the marketing prowess of video game companies will never cease to amaze us am I right?

Development on the live-action Need For Speed movie seems to be actually progressing instead of stalling and dying a slow death over the course of several years.

Mass Effect Movie Gets New Writer, Still Not Close To Entering Production

In a sign that the project is somewhat moving along instead of being forever trapped within the nothingness that is a black hole, the Mass Effect movie now has a new screenwriter attached.  Announced several years ago with production company Legendary Films (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) handling the core duties, the Mass Effect movie could’ve provided us with some amazing sci-fi in the movie arena, but as always development woes were abound.
