Gary Whitta and Matt Reeves Tagged for Mouse Guard Movie

It seems that any fantasy property out there is getting some love from Hollywood, and this time it is the graphic novel series by David Peterson entitled Mouse Guard. This movie will be a CG live-action film. If you're wondering what exactly is a CG live-action film, think of the new Jungle Book movie, and place it in a medieval setting where a band of mice protect the common folk.

The graphic series actually just celebrated its 10 year anniversary milestone, it's been translated into 10 different languages, and is seen as one of the most successful independent comic book franchises of the last decade.

Alright, I have to say this before I end the article, as a fan of Brian Jacques, something about this Mouse Guard makes me feel like this series is a fine example of plagiarism of the Redwall series. Now I could be completely wrong because I'm basing this off of just the feeling I get when I read about this series, but what does everyone else think? Or better yet has anyone read both and could you explain the differences?

Defiance Game Studio has decided to take on the greatest of tasks to give you an "RPG inside a world simulator".

These decisions can change the fate of people both friends and foes, as well as the economy, and relationships.

So if you'd like to know more about what this game can potentially become I recommend that you go to their Greenlight page, and perhaps vote for it so that it can take even more steps to getting closer to reality.

A New Permanent Campaign for Crusaders of the Lost Idols Has Appeared

 

Many of you may have realized by this point that I've been logging in some serious time into the game Crusaders of the Lost Idols on the PC, and for good reason, this game continues to be addictive. Now the developers have added not only some new content but content that is going to stick around forever. 

Oh yes my friends this isn't just a week or weekend deal, this is for the life of the game. Now I know what some of you are thinking, is this going to be on all platforms now that this game is out for the PC, Android, and iOS devices... Well of course, why would the developer be so cruel, they of course want everyone to enjoy and get lost in the game forever!!!! Well maybe not forever, I mean people do have to do other things in their daily lives, but this just one more reason to come back to the game and have more to challenge yourself to.

This new campaign, Idols Through Time, will require you to have excelled at the game to the point of 5000 Idols, so you will be able to see if but maybe not play it right away, but there are some extra goodies stashed away in the game that I'm sure will be worth the time spent.

Help George Get Over His Fear of the Dark

In an interesting twist you play the role of George, a ghost, who is afraid of the dark. His only wish is to find his way to the lighthouse and find out who lives in the small cottage. Then there's another twist, in this difficult platformer the levels, which there are 10 of, are procedurally generated, so don't get too comfortable.

This game is now out for the iPhone and is priced at $1.99. For those of you out there who are platforming maniacs this game is right up your alley, and for those who like platformers but might be a little scared, don't worry just collect the skulls throughout the levels, they bestow upon you special powers, and if you're lucky enough you'll also be able to unlock 3 additional characters to make the journey.
