If you’re a fan of shadowy silhouette style visuals with a creepy story, Little Nightmares might fulfill your gaming needs. Now available digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam, the title was developed by Tarsier Studios and was released by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
Set on a mysterious and creepy vessel named The Maw, gamers navigate Six, a young heroine who’s initially equipped with just a yellow raincoat and a lighter, through this labyrinthine universe. The vessel is filled with enemies and creatures who are waiting to devour their next victim, and Six’s harrowing journey is filled with its share of tragedy and surreal occurrences.
“This has been one of the most creative, imaginative, and darkly eccentric games we have developed at Tarsier,” said Tarsier Studios CEO Andreas Johnsson. “This project has been over 10 years in the making, and our team is extremely proud to launch Little Nightmares and let players experience our vision.”
Gamers who still love physical copies of their titles can purchase a special collectible Six Edition for PS4 and Xbox One. A Six figurine, original game soundtrack, sticker board, exclusive poster, and a themed cage box are all included in the physical copy. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
Having won the Mister Universe title three times, spearheading the successful TV show (Self Made Man), and starring/producing a slew of hit action films (Moscow Heat, Treasure Raiders, MagicMan, Showdown in Manila), Alexander Nevskywelcomes new challenges. Case in point is the action thriller Black Rose, a project which marks his feature directing debut.
Directing your first feature and essentially acting in almost all of its scenes is a herculean task for any artist, and thankfully Nevsky had a dependable group of talented co-stars and veteran cinematographer Rudy Harbon (the pair reunited for the 2016 film Showdown in Manila) to aid him through the process.
“It was tough,” said Nevsky, who also worked with revered director Walter Hill in Undisputed and Sofia Coppola in Somewhere. “It was my directorial debut. It was my intention to show how Moscow is a great and beautiful city and it was also my idea to show Los Angeles – it’s an unbelievable city. I live (in Los Angeles). I love Los Angeles, and both cities have different sides. Don’t get me wrong – it was tough all the way but I enjoyed it a lot. All of it.”
The story centers on a Russian Police Major (Nevsky) who transferred to Los Angeles to help the LAPD catch a serial killer. Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) plays his new partner in the investigation, with Adrian Paul and Robert Davi co-starring as members of the LAPD. “I was smart enough to surround myself with my friends,” added Nevsky. “They are great people. Kristanna is an amazing action star and she’s also a great actress.”
Along with the ambitious undertaking of shooting in Moscow and Los Angeles, Nevsky didn’t want Black Rose to be a one dimensional cop buddy film (although he and Kristanna Loken have a natural chemistry). A healthy portion of the narrative is a whodunit, as the identity of the serial killer isn’t revealed until the film’s final act. At the heart of Black Rose, however, is its unabashed love for movies from the 1980s and 1990s, when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone films were a driving force in action infused cinema.
“We have something from Dirty Harry in the film,” said Nevsky. “We have something from Schwarzenegger and Stallone films in Black Rose. Because they made me. Thanks to Stallone, I started boxing. Thanks to Arnold I started bodybuilding. I’m a huge fan of classic action genre films.”
It’s great to see Nevsky bringing a bit of the old back into the new, and Black Rose is an intriguing blend of a buddy cop movie and mystery. The film, which opens in theaters today, also hits VOD and DVD May 2nd.
Chris “Ludacris” Bridges probably never expected to do five The Fast and the Furious movies. He wasn’t in the original; his character, Tej Parker, was introduced in the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious. Then, he wasn’t cast in the third or fourth movies. But he returned in Fast Five and has been in each of the subsequent films, including The Fate of the Furious. And he’d love to be in more of the movies, because he thinks they keep getting better and better each time. (Click on the media bar below to hear Ludacris)
Before he was Bruno Mars: Superstar, he was Bruno Mars: Struggling artist, songwriter and producer. His career seemed to be an endless series of false starts, and it got so bad, there was a time when he didn’t know where he’d find the money to pay his rent. But once he turned the corner, he did it in a big way — he’s now one of the world’s top-selling artists, and his always-energetic stage shows have been selling out all over the world. Still, he remembers what it was like when he couldn’t seem to catch a break. (Click on the media bar below to hear Bruno Mars)
While his latest single, That’s What I Like, climbs the charts, Bruno Mars is currently touring Europe. His North American tour starts July 15 in Las Vegas.
Baseball enthusiasts have probably grown up collecting Topps cards as a way to support their respective teams and favorite players. Diehard collectors obviously purchase baseball cards for investment purposes, hoping a respective card or pack will earn them a sizable profit in the future. Topps MLB Bunt 2017, now available via the App Store and Google Play Store, is a digital card trading card app merges the love of card collecting and gaming.
This free to lay title gives players a random combination of 5 cards face down which includes strikes, foul balls, and balls. Every round has players revealing three cards by dragging them to the batter’s box and receiving coins for each hit. Huge coin payouts are given to Grand Slams, along with a player’s tendency to gamble by playing on without striking out (if one strikes out, their winnings are erased). The amount of digital card packs a player can open each day is based on their daily amount of coins amassed.
Do you still collect baseball cards or have you entirely switched to mobile gaming for your card fixations? Feel free to comment below!!
