Top5 Video Game Movies YOU Want To See

10/12/2008 9:51:52 PM permalink

A few weeks back my friend Kaeos and I talked about which  video games we would like to see be made into movies on Chaotic Radio and now with the recent release of Max Payne and the soon Bioshock and Prince of Persia movies, it seems likely we will start seeing a few games we like, turned into movies.

So, to start off I will introduce my Top5!

Half-Life - The third FPS I have on my list but also the best! This game is my favorite FPS of all time, hands down! This game HAS a very well thought out story with a main character who never talks...crazy. I can see them going in many directions with this movie. It does not have to be action driven at all because like I said, there is a story. You can go deep into the theme with the corporation, like the man with the briefcase or go action! There is plenty to be told with Freeman escaping from the science lab all the way to fighting with the resistence! I am honeslty surprised that this game has not been autioned off for movie rights!

Duke Nukem -I ask you, why not? Duke Nukem is one of the most quotable characters from a game that I can think of.  Yes, he stole most of his quotes from movies but it still does not hurt. I can say that this was one of the first games I had played which involved me taking a piss, drinking from a toilet and tipping the local strippers. The game almost had a gridhouse feel to it. I can see this movie being made into one hell of an action packed hellride!

 

 Mass Effect - I thought it would be best to throw in something a little more recent. Like Half-Life, this game could go many directions. The universe the writers created for this game are expansive and could bring in Star Wars like stories and memorable characters. I thought this was one of the best sci-fi games ever and hopefully brought out some new ideas in other writers to start trusting making more of a story driven sci-fi game then action.

 

Twisted Metal - Now some of you might think that this would be like Death Race but if you have played the game and watched the movie, you would know that there is a significant difference. For me the gameplay was nothing really new but it was the bio's on the drivers and their stories which drove this franchise. I would love to see Thumper and Spectre go up against eachother in a live action film. Make it more story driven with awesome action sequences and you have a movie that will generate some good gross and a most likely turn into a cult classic!

 Wolfenstein - This game was my first expeirence with the FPS. To think of it, not really a story at all, not until Return to Castle Wolfenstien but I am sure they could not do worse with making this movie then Doom. Throw some occult nazis, ghosts and some crazy guns and I am there....Oh yea, it would help to have a story as well!

New Year=New Games

2/5/2008 4:41:25 PM permalink

So, another year is upon us which means many a talk about which console will be having the better games, and overral gameplay.

Now, frankly, I have a 360 and will not be buying anything else anytime soon. So, I guess you could say my choices 'could' be limited, but I do not think so.

Just among some of the games coming out this year you have:

Highlander

Mafia II

Final Fantasy XIII

Fracture

Army of Two

Frontlines

Rainbow Six Vegas 2

Tomb Raider: Underworld

Ghostbusters

Madden '09,

Left For Dead

Star Wars : The Force Unleashed

GTA IV

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Fallout 2

Condemned 2

Farcry 2

Resistence 2

Triberium

Starcraft?

Lego Indinana Jones as well as Batman

Battlefield: Bad Company

Hell, I could keep on going but I think we all get the idea. So, with a new year among us and just a limited amount of titles that have been released, what are you looking forward to the most?

Spammed, again!

1/19/2008 1:16:51 PM permalink

That's right, another saturday means more spam from me!!

Last week we had Mania's own Merin stop in and chat on the board while he listend to Kaeos and I discuss the finer points of who is a better villain and why AVP:R sucked so bad.

Well, we would like any and all to come to the CHAOTIC RADIO tonight over at www.nowlive.com at 7pm pst and 10pm est.

We will have a entertainment report, Top 5, A Game Report,  Headlines and you got to ask yourself something, What Annoys You!?

Thanks again for all the love and support of Mania, the coolest fuckin' site full of fans of all genres who try to not bitch about the new Star Trek film!

Take care all and hope to see some of you there!

 

 

 


Special Edition's Please!

1/15/2008 6:00:18 PM permalink

There are still quite a few movies that have not been given the right treatment in terms of 'Special Editions'.

Some frankly probably will never get the extras but we can only hope.

I personally would like to see:

Johnny Mnemonic - Yes, that is right. I really like this movie and feel it deserves some extras on it. I would like to see a making of and deleted scenes. For me, it was one of those movies I just latched onto when I was a kid and never quite got over.

Escape From L.A. - Another some feel is was quite a dissapointment. When I watch it, I watch it for Snake, the main character and not thinking of Escape From N.Y. and I believe that was the problem a lot of people had with it. They had seen a classic and finally hear about a sequal coming out and what they got was something completely different. Still, it has it's faults but I would love to hear a commentary with others.

Now that I think of it, there are also two Carpenter classics that have NOTHING on the DVD.

They Live - Awesome movie! "I came here to kick ass and chew bubble gum.....And I am all out of bubble gum!" The fight scene between Piper and David is also one of the coolest.

Prince of Darkness - How can this movie STILL have nothing on the DVD's!?! Easily one of the creppiest Carpenter films of all. And you know, he is getting older everyday...I think he needs to get on top of these films quickstyle!!

So, what other classic's would you fellow Maniac's love to see with some more material?

Everyone else does it, so why not me!?!

1/12/2008 12:41:18 PM permalink

Whatupper for supper, chicken fuckers!?! It is I, Swansong or TheGentlemenDeath as some of you know me in the forums.

I come to you as a movie lover and friend. As I hope you do as well, so why not come and say hi to us over at CHAOTIC RADIO !!  www.nowlive.com !! Tongiht at 7pm pst and 10pm est.

Yes I know, it is a Saturday. But since we all post here on a regular basis I am under the assumption that 75% of us have nothing going on tonight!...Just like me!

Tonight we are doing a review for AVP:R, Weird and Strange Headlines with The Gentlemen, a funny ass Chaotic Radio Top 5 and much more!

If you like insanity and movies, why not come on over to Nowlive and show us some Mania support like McKracken, DarkJedi, Immortal1982, Bill the Pony, Thurston McQ, Midnightman and many many more!

Once again, thank you all for reading this. Some might see it as spam, I see it as a way to communicate to future audience members!

Love, Peace and Chicken Grease!

We need some feedback and help from our MANIA homies!

1/4/2008 9:34:14 PM permalink

Looks like we may have a shot at syndication! Coool.

Several shows have a chance to be syndicated to multiple media sites and Chaotic Radio is in the running. This would effectively increase our potential listenership something like 150%

If there was a ever a time to rally troops to the show, it's now.

Our next several shows are going to be under a microscope so I'm "pounding the pavement" to get everyone possible to the show on Saturday - as usual - 10pm east, 7 on the west coast over at www.nowlive.com

I gotta say, again, our platform is unlike any other live webcasting site out there! When you come to the show, you are greeted by an interactive chat room attached right to the broadcast. I get the pleasure of conversing with the audience live which just makes the show that much better. You can upload media (*see crewman Midnightman) right to the board; pics, mp3's, you can tag youtube vids and all of this media can be shared or viewed individually. There are webcam spot open in the media section where audience members can plug in and be seen - if your into that sort of thing....

So I encourage all of you to stop on in and check us out, get in and tell me what you think! We'll be live this Saturday!
