Why is it so damn hard to turn a great video game into an excellent movie? So many excellent franchises have been adapted for the screen in what can consistently be labeled as lackluster efforts.
Sony Online Entertainment will be summoning spirits, spooks, and skeletons with some upcoming Halloween-themed activities and in-game events taking place in several of its hit online titles including Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, Free Realms, EverQuest, EverQuest II and Star Wars Galaxies. From the Press Release:
Lately the world has been obsessed with sexy/stupid sparkly vampires and shirtless werewolves. For those of you who cry, "Where the hell are the blood-sucking demons, damn it?!", weep no more. Battlefield Heroes has now been invaded by vampires and werewolves … the GOOD KIND, too. The kind that split you up the middle if the moment pleases them.
On January 26th one of the year’s most anticipated video games, Mass Effect 2, will be released nationwide. In celebration, Dark Horse and Electronic Arts Inc. have announced the launch of Mass Effect: Redemption on the iPhone mobile comics platform.
