We’re ecstatic to be working on a video game based in the universe which originated from “The Karate Kid.” As a kid born in the 80s, you can imagine how many times I tried to land a perfect crane kick on pretty much any target, from empty cans to tennis balls. I remember one day when I was seven playing as a goalie in a soccer match at school when I literally saved a shot with an admittedly clumsy, but good enough crane kick just to show off to my friends.

I actually had not watched the show when the opportunity came along to pitch a Cobra Kai game concept to GameMill Entertainment (the show had not found its way to Netflix yet). I decided to watch an episode or two to get into a Karate Kid headspace and 20 hours later I had binged both seasons and was writing … Read the rest

Ubisoft shared a blog post today explaining how cross-progression, cross-play, and backwards compatibility will work for certain games once next-gen consoles arrive. It’s an informative read, but one thing that stands out is that a handful of the publisher’s PlayStation 4 catalog, including several Assassin’s Creed games, won’t be playable on PlayStation 5. 

While all Ubisoft Xbox One games will be backwards compatible on Xbox Series X/S, the same won’t be true for the following PlayStation 4 games on Playstation 5:

  • Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
  • Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack
  • Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India 
  • Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China
  • Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Russia
  • Risk 
  • Space Junkies
  • Star Trek Bridge Crew
  • Werewolves Within

The post doesn’t explain why these specific titles won’t work on PlayStation 5. Syndicate is perhaps the strangest entry, as it’s the only mainline AC game to get left behind (the Chronicles games are side-scrolling spin-offs, for those unaware). Entries Read the rest

Halloween is right around the corner, and as luck would have it, another full moon. What better way to celebrate this year’s frightful festivities than by playing Otter Space’s Roblox horror game A Wolf or Other (more aptly abbreviated as AWOO) with your friends on Xbox One?

A Wolf or Other is an asymmetrical multiplayer game about a small community of people who must fend off against a ferocious beast every full moon. But there’s a twist! The monster is hiding among them, and it’s on the hunt. You’ll never know when your closest ally may actually turn into your worst nightmare.

Roblox - A Wolf Or Other

Originally inspired by murder mystery games, VitalWinter, the lead developer, wanted to create a dark and thematic experience on Roblox where players could enjoy the thrill of hide-and-seek layered with the frantic fun of a social deception game. After some time of off-and-on development, A Wolf or OtherRead the rest

Video game films are largely regulated to pure adaptations of existing games. Once in a while, though, you get films like 1UP, which uses gaming as a backdrop to tell a more personable story. The underdog comedy begins production this winter and centers on women in esports, and the sexism that often surround it. 

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming film stars Paris Berelc (Hubie Halloween, Alexa & Katie) as Vivian Lee, an eSports player who quits her college team after enduring sexist behavior from her male teammates. At the risk of losing her scholarship, though, she’s forced to assemble her own team led by an “enigmatic coach” played by Ellen Page (The Umbrella Academy, Juno). 

The film is the first production by BuzzFeed Studios and is directed by Kyle Newman (Fanboys, Barely Lethal). The fledgling studio aims to produce “socially Read the rest
