  1. We've known since back in February that Netflix was working on creating a mini-series based on the Castlevania franchise. Now we have our first glimpse at what that series will look like. This animated adaptation appear to lean hard on the Gothic horror elements that have been near and dear to the series since its inception. Skeletons on pikes, blood, whips, explosions, dark visuals - the teaser, titled Vengeance, gives off every indication that Netflix is targeting an older audience with their animated Castlevania. Perhaps the grit on display in Castlevania is meant to be Netflix's competitive answer to the massively popular Attack on Titan series, currently on its second season. While video game adaptations have been given a bad rap in recent years with a multitude of lackluster attempts to reimagine video game series as movies, there is reason to hope that Castlevania might find success. It has been masterminded by Adi Shankar, who worked on the film Dredd and helped make the gritty Power Rangers short a reality. Dead Space writer and the creator of the storyline for Iron Man 3, Warren Ellis has helped to pen the series from the ground up. On top of that, animation work has been done by some of the people behind Adventure Time. Overall, color me pleasantly surprised by this teaser and hopeful that the series can really become something special. Netflix's Castlevania releases on July 7.

  3. While many should rightly be skeptical of video game properties coming to Netflix after the runaway rumor that Netflix was putting a Legend of Zelda show into production last year, we can confirm that Netflix is indeed developing a show based on the Castlevania games. io9 first noticed that the words "Castlevania Season 1, Part 1" were nestled within a recent press release from Netflix with a projected release of sometime during 2017. That's right. We are getting a vampire hunting show based on Castlevania sometime within the next ten months. As exciting as that prospect might be, details beyond that it exists are pretty scarce. Adi Shankar, known for his work producing Dredd and the gritty Power Rangers short from 2015, has been attached to the Castlevania project for a while now. He has specifically mentioned working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde who are best known for their work behind the scenes on Adventure Time. Shankar has described the show as dark, satirical, and super violent. "After a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," he stated in a Facebook announcement last year. Warren Ellis, the writer behind the Dead Space video game, RED, and the story on which Iron Man 3 based itself, was brought on board to write the series. In a recent Facebook post trumpeting the announcement of Castlevania coming to Netflix, Shankar threw down the gauntlet. "I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation," the producer promised. Here's hoping you can deliver, Mr. Shankar. The second part of the series is expected to release in 2018. View full article

  5. Update: 03/24/2015 Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata gave an interview to Time Magazine touching on a number of topics, but, sadly, Iwata poured some cold water on the rumors of a live-action Legend of Zelda series in the works with Netflix. Iwata said, “As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information." While this is certain to be disappointing news to some, it doesn't necessarily mean that Nintendo is ruling out the possibility of creating a miniseries based off of their IP, especially given their upcoming foray into mobile development. Original Story: 02/06/2015 Yep, you read that headline right. We might be seeing a live-action Legend of Zelda series sometime in the near future. The Wall Street Journal reported today that an unidentified source confirmed that Netflix and Nintendo were in the early stages of creating an online series set in Hyrule about a boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda. Netflix reportedly describes the show as "Game of Thrones but for a family audience." The source said that Netflix is in the process of finding writers for the show, so a live-action Legend of Zelda series is probably a year or more away from becoming a reality. Now, this is all effectively rumor since no one has been able to confirm with either Netflix or Nintendo that they're in the process of making this show. If it is real, there's an equally real possibility that the project will never see the light of day, killed off by either Netflix or Nintendo. Still, imagining what a series like this would be like is certainly interesting. I mean, for goodness sake, if IGN can cobble together a fake live-action trailer for an April Fools Day prank, then I have to think that Netflix and Nintendo pooling their talents and resources together could make something truly amazing. Obviously, it is way too early to get any hopes up, but I think I already am overly hopeful about this becoming a real thing.

  7. In response to lackluster sales and a large number of requests from would-be Xbox One purchasers, Microsoft has unveiled a cheaper Xbox One that will be sold without the Kinect. The new model of Xbox One will retail at $399 and will hit the market on June 9. the Kinect will be available separately sometime later this fall. This news comes hand in hand with the announcement that a variety of paid for services will no longer be locked behind Xbox Live like Netflix, Twitch, HBO GO, and various sports apps. What do you think? Will this and the reversal on used games/always online be enough to bring in more customers for Microsoft?
