Greetings, fellow travelers! The Weekend Wizard Inn is open for business, so grab a seat and discuss what’s in your gaming quest log for the next few days. Maybe even do so over a piping bowl of ogre blood stew, a roasted giant’s toe, or a cool mug of our freshest snail ale! There’s a great spot over near the fire with some of your fellow mages, and it appears a purple-robed fella with a… creepy smile of sorts… is waving you over!
CAAAAAN U FEEEEEEEL THUH LUUUUUUV TOOOONIIIIITE?!
BioShock proved to me that games could be something I never even dreamed of. They could be dark, scary gruesome but at the same time beautiful, sophisticated and yes… fun. So BioShock changed me — games were once little more than a way to waste some time. Now they are something more. Games are a form of art.

Guitar Hero taught me that I can do it, that I don’t have to fear failure. It wasn’t a magic potion but it was a crutch through hard times, and both inspiration and distraction when I believed I was worthless.
The upcoming film based on Capcom’s Monster Hunter games has released its synopsis:
Behind our world, there is another — a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis ([Milla] Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, terrifying attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man (Tony Jaa) who has found a way to fight back.
The release date has been set by distributor Screen Gems at 4th September 2020, the Labor Day weekend. So far, it’s the only film to claim that weekend.
In news that probably won’t surprise anyone, Variety is reporting that EA has begun development on another Need for Speed title. According to reports, the news was revealed during EA’s 2018 Q4 financial webcast on Tuesday 5th January 2019. Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer Blake Jorgensen revealed that the Need for Speed brand is “very strong in China”. He continued:
“As that market continues to evolve and mature we’re seeing brands likes Need for Speed, Plants Vs. Zombies, Titanfall, and potentially The Sims may have tremendous appeal there.”
Nothing about this next Need for Speed game is yet known. It’s unknown whether the untitled Need for Speed game mentioned in this financial webcast refers to the upcoming free-to-play online game Need for Speed: Edge.
