The Witcher III Will 'Probably Not' Run At 1080PWorld’s Factory recently interviewed CD Projekt Red’s visual effects artist Jose Texiera about the upcoming The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. When asked if the game would run at 1080P and 60 fps on console, Texeira replied, “I really don’t know, probably not.”

This reduction from the standard of graphical fidelity might be attributed to the game’s engine, which Texeira reveals as very physics-heavy. He states, “We’re asking the environment artists to put as many physics objects as possible.”

To explain the intricacy of the engine, Texeira cited an example of the game’s lead character, Geralt, casting a spell in a tavern. “Geralt has this spell, a push of force, and when he does that, everything flies off the table.”

It appears that developers may be sacrificing some graphical quality in favor of a more immersive and realistic experience. The news is unwelcome but falls in line with RPG history. Traditionally very lengthy RPG’s have less than stellar graphics due to the sheer size of the game. But the news is somewhat surprising as Batman: Arkham Knight developers recently stated that the power of the next-gen hardware no longer required game developers to decide between graphics and game size.

The reduction in graphical quality is very disappointing as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s trailers quickly established it as one of the best looking upcoming games of 2015.

VENOM Trailer is Pure Action Horror

Published

on

Surprise news for those of you still up late as Sony has dropped the first trailer for Venom, their standalone film based on the character of the same name. For those of you who were wondering how this film might stand up in today’s age of “some are good and some are bad” comic book-to-film adaptations, I’m going to lean towards the former. While I’ll try to remain skeptical, something about the way this movie is looking is grabbing my attention and has me quite excited. Apart from the requisite action that all superhero movies have these days, there’s a wonderful amount of horror throughout the trailer.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!

One of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott. It infects theaters on October 5, 2018.

POLL: Who Should Direct Wan and King’s TOMMYKNOCKERS?

Published

on

It was just last month that we learned James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) is going to be producing a new big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.

While I’m sad that it seems Wan will not be directing the film, I think it’s a great time to bring up the question: Well, then who the hell SHOULD?

You can find my top 3 choices below and then make sure to let us know who you think should direct James Wan’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky: “It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”

Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers will be produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Roy Lee (Stephen King’s IT) and the ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

Synopsis:

A town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.

Guess Who Just Snagged Wan and King’s New TOMMYKNOCKERS

Published

on

Earlier this month we passed along the exciting news that that none other than James Wan plans to bring Stephen King’s novel The Tommyknockers back to the screen.

Wan will be producing (but not at this time, directing) the film along with Roy Lee (IT) and the original ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

And today Deadline reports Universal won the bidding war over the new adaptation, barely beating out fellow heavyweights Sony and Netflix. And thus Universal, home of the classic movie monsters, will be bringing us Wan and King’s first (and hopefully not last) collaboration.

Are you excited by this news? Do you think Universal is the right fit for this new film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
