Hollywood The Game (HTG) is a Hollywood & Filmmaking Simulation Game that is open and free to players of all ages. Players can take the roles of studio heads, producers, critics, journalists, marketing agents, creative companies, real estate agents, and casting agents to name a few.

The backbone of the game emphasizes the producer/writer career, in which a player has the chance to write, cast, market (make posters, trailers, ads, etc. for your film), and produce their own films. The film is then released into HTG theaters, getting reviews and feedback from the rest of players, as well as receiving money from the HTG box-office. Everything in this game is simulated, including the films, (i.e., they’re not real films; just scripts, summaries, short stories, etc.), money, possessions, and posters and ads. Overall, it is a completely free, fun way to hone your screenwriting skills while having fun with a game at the same time.

The game is finishing up its 10th session of virtual television and is entering a epic summer movie season that includes a new Batman adaptation, along with remakes of Hellraiser and Friday the 13th, and a ton of original pieces that producers are hoping to blow you away with! Hope to see you in Hollywood: The Game!

“My name is Duke Nukem – and I’m coming to get the rest of you alien bastards”

It took him long enough to get here, but “the king” is back in Duke Nukem Forever! The game was first announced back in 1997 and will finally see the light of day on May 3rd, 2011 (less than two months away). But it is okay, I have to imagine the aliens just took a lot longer than expected to regroup and plan a large scale attack on the Earth. Of course they are launching the same plan as in Duke Nukem 3D, where they’ve kidnapped a ton of beautiful Earth women. I just hope that Duke hasn’t gotten too lazy or fat to deal with them!

The game’s official description:

Put on your shades and prepare to step into the boots of Duke Nukem, whose legend has reached epic proportions in the years since his last adventure. The alien hordes are invading and only Duke can save the world. Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop our hero from accomplishing his goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it.

The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. This game puts the pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek. Shoot hoops, lift weights, play pool, draw crude messages on whiteboards or check out the babes that occupy Duke’s life – that is if you can pull yourself away from destroying alien invaders. With hours and hours of over-the-top single player action, and a range of bodacious multiplayer modes, rest assured knowing the fun will last.

We can expect the same wisecracking/movie quotes Duke along with a large interactive world. Tired of fighting aliens? Then have Duke take a break to shoot hoops, lift weights, play some pinball, enjoy the pool, get your air hockey on, head to the slots, or knowing Duke, you can also likely drink and just watch strippers (that is if they all haven’t been kidnapped yet).

Along with Doom and Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem 3D was a first person shooter that set the standard of what the games could be. I lost an endless amount of hours to it, and I can’t wait to lose more hours to Duke’s hijinks. Like all current games, it will feature an online multiplayer – but how will it be more than just a bunch of Dukes running around killing each other (can people play as the aliens also- because that would be damn cool).

You can preorder Duke Nukem Forever over here.

Being an avid gamer, I’m always interested in seeing game’s being adapted for films. However, with the exception of the first Mortal Kombat film, I’ve yet to see a decent game to film adaptation. From the okay (Prince Of Persia) to the downright just bad (Street Fighter: Legend Of Chun Li, Doom) I could go on but I won’t.

Now the latest one that is apparently being touted is the PS3 game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Having played and finished Uncharted 1 and 2, I absolutely loved both games and thought the potential to make this into a film was awesome. For those who haven’t played the game, the lead character Nathan Drake is a descendant of Sir Francis Drake. He’s a treasure hunter and the game basically plays like a modern day Indiana Jones, which is exactly how they should go about the film.

When I first heard that David O. Russell was directing, I wasn’t thrilled, but having seen what he has directed recently I’m willing to give him a chance. Then my enthusiasm was dampened even more when I heard they had cast Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake. Wahlberg is a fine actor and I’ve heard his work in Russell’s The Fighter is absolutely top notch, but I think Wahlberg works best in a ensemble film with a good cast around him. When he is the lead the film just seems to fail. He already has one bad video game adaptation to his name in the form of Max Payne, does he really need another? Personally and as a fan of Uncharted I hope he and Russell do this film justice. Perhaps if they surround Wahlberg with a good supporting cast it might turn out good. But with record of the video game to film adaptations not being good, I’m going to be watching this one with caution.

James Bond Blood Stone

“Bond, James Bond” is back in an all new adventure! It might be a while before we get a new 007 movie thanks to all of the financial troubles of the MGM (the movie studio that owns the rights to the superspy) but at least we’d continue getting new video games.

James Bond 007: Blood Stone just come out on X-Box 360, PS3, and PCs, and stars Daniel Craig as Bond. In his new adventure, Bond must unravel a mystery that concerns a secret bio-chemical project that has fallen into the wrong hands. To uncover the truth Bond must fight across the globe, including Athens, Istanbul, Monaco, and Bangkok. How deep does the conspiracy run? You’ll have to play to find out.

The game features a mixture of third-person gun fights, hand to hand combat, and driving action. In addition to Daniel Craig, Judi Dench reprises her role from the films and Joss Stone is the latest”Bond Girl”. The online gameplay allows for up to 16 people, which is completely badass. Back on the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye‘s multiplayer set the standards of badass-ness and I can’t wait to hunt down 15 of my friends in Blood Stone.

Speaking of the classic game, while the Wii will not be getting Blood Stone, they have gotten a revamped GoldenEye 007. The game has been revamped and updated, now utilizing the current Bond, Daniel Craig, instead of Pierce Brosnan whose likeness was featured in the original game (and who starred in the movie the game was based on). The game’s story has been changed up a little bit to fit better in the world of Craig’s Bond. I gotta say, this is pretty cool. The original GoldenEye 007 was awesome, and it looks like they did a good job updating the game with modern gameplay.
