Fuse Blasts Its Way to ConsolesElectronic Arts and Insomniac Games have announced that players can step into the sci-fi fun of Fuse which is now available for Xbox 360 and PS3. Players can assume the role of four operatives who are tasked with collecting a batch of Xenotech weapons powered by an alien energy source before they are used to take over the world.

From the Press Release
Four is better than one when it’s four against… everyone. Insomniac Games, makers of the beloved Ratchet & Clank and Resistance franchises, today announced with Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) that Fuse is now available in stores and on Origin. The first multiplatform release from the award-winning independent developer, Fuse is set in a vibrant world driven by dynamic co-op action and innovative high-tech combat. Fuse places extra emphasis on player freedom, introducing a new feature, LEAP. This inventive new mechanic allows players to switch between the four characters at-will, delivering on Insomniac’s promise to bring something new to the genre and offer a unique approach to gaming with friends.

“In a world of sequels, Fuse is the breath of fresh air that gamers have been waiting for. Between our exotic Fuse weapons, inventive co-op gameplay and signature dry humor, Fuse offers something original for gamers seeking a new adventure at the end of this generation’s console cycle,” said Ted Price, CEO and Founder of Insomniac Games. “The game is built from the ground up to offer the best four-player co-op experience today. Thanks to our LEAP functionality, players can experience each of our four distinct operatives at-will in combat even if they’re not playing with three other friends. With Fuse, playing is believing.”

In Fuse, players are thrust into the shoes of four elite operatives- Dalton Brooks, Izzy Sinclair, Jacob Kimble and Naya Deveraux – as they embark on a mission to take down Raven, a rogue paramilitary organization that has stolen a volatile alien substance. Each covert agent is equipped with unique skills and weapons that are not only necessary for survival, but also help create unexpected and extraordinary results. Xenotech weapons are powered by the alien substance, Fuse, giving players otherworldly capabilities that expand their strategic options in and out of combat. Through lethal teamwork, players can complete objectives and combine their Xenotech guns to pull off kills to earn Fuse points for powerful upgrades.

Fuse can be played online* with two or three friends or solo, or offline with a friend via split-screen co-op. In any mode, players progress along unique character paths, letting players unlock devastatingly powerful Fuse-driven abilities as they level up. In addition, the game’s progression system is unified between the campaign and the additional, wave-based Echelon mode, allowing players to continue improving their operatives regardless of how they play.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.

Trailer: Paul Solet’s Bullet Head Hits Blu-ray This January

Published

on

After checking out writer-director Paul Solet’s pregnancy gone awry flick Grace a few years back, the talented filmmaker made my list of directors to watch out for.

And it is with this in mind that we’d like to share the trailer and Blu-ray/DVD release info for his newest action-survival-crime flick Bullet Head.

The movie stars Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, and Rory Culkin (Scream 4) as a group of thieves trapped in an abandoned warehouse with a vicious man-eating dog…

And Antonio Banderas?

That’ll work!

The trailer reminds me of Fede Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe, but as we all know, that is NOT a bad thing. Throw in some crime-movie good times and this could be a sleeper hit.

You can check out the trailer for yourself below – along with a full list of special features – and then let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

The film has been rated R by the MPAA for “violence, bloody images, language, some drug use, and nudity.”

Bullet Head hits theaters December 8th, and Blu-ray/DVD January 9th, 2018.

PRE-ORDER NOW!

Synopsis:

Oscar winner Adrien Brody, Antonio Banderas and John Malkovich deliver the action in this riveting crime story about three career criminals trapped in a warehouse after a heist.

The Dollmaker Short Film Review – Welcome to Heebie Jeebie City!

Published

on

Starring Perri Lauren, Sean Meehan, Dan Berkey

Directed by Alan Lougher


The loss of a young child drives a mother to take a set of unusual measures to preserve his memory, and all it takes is one call to The Dollmaker.

When the short film by Alan Lougher opens up, we see a rather disturbing image of a little boy inside a casket, and the sound of a grieving mom speaking with an unidentified man in the background – he’s requesting something personal of the child to help “finish” his product, and it’s not before long that mom has her little boy back…well, kind of. What remains of the child is the representation of his former self, although it’s contained within the frame of a not-so-attractive doll, and the boy’s father isn’t a believer in this type of hocus-pocus (or the price to have this constructed, either). The doll comes with a specific set of instructions, but most importantly, you cannot spend more than one hour a day with the doll, or else you’ll go mad thinking that the soul inside of it is actually the person that you lost – sounds reasonable, doesn’t it?

Well this is just too good to be true for Mommy, and as the short film progresses, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to her mind – it’s ultimately a depressing scenario, but Lougher gives it that creepy feel, almost like visiting a relative’s home and seeing their dearly departed pet stuffed and staring at you over the fireplace – HEEBIE-JEEBIE CITY, if you ask me. All in all, the quickie is gloomy, but ultimately chilling in nature, and is most definitely worth a watch, and if I might use a quote from one of my favorite films to apply to this subject matter: “Sometimes…dead is better.”
