Movie Issues: Poltergeist

Every year there always seems to be some unnecessary remake that Hollywood feels must be done. This time it’s the newest version of Tobe Hooper and Steven Spielberg’s 1982 film, Poltergeist. This edition is directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House, City of Ember), and written by David Lindsay-Abaire. What could have been a very standard remake with no creativity, here, is given some love and respect to one of the best suspense films of the 80s. This new Poltergeist isn’t better than the original, but is a fun watch for fans.

Review: Shadow Scale

Shadow Scale, Rachel Hartman’s sequel to 2012’s Seraphina, was released months ago and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner. It’s full of dragons and music, adventure and magic, and it’s the first book in a long time where I kept counting to see how many pages were left; not because I wanted to finish, but because I knew I was running out of time to stay in the book. I was honestly sad when it was over.

The Bard is Back for Another Encore

In the midst of a cinematic year that features the Jurassic Park, Mad Max, Star Wars, and Terminator franchises, and that the genres enjoying the most sweeping resurgence in interactive entertainment are Role-Playing-Games and Space Flight-Simulators, one can be forgiven for a bit of chronological confusion.

Brian Fargo, inXile, and A Bard’s Tale are looking to add fuel to that fire. Fresh off of a two-straight win-streak of resounding Kickstarter successes in the form of the multiple GotY-award winning RPG masterpiece Wasteland 2 and the highly-anticipated Torment: Tides of Numenara, the industry vet and indie studio extraordinaire are resurrecting the fan favorite Bard’s Tale franchise.

 

Anyone else remember when this was state-of-the-art?

Anyone else remember when this was state-of-the-art?

On the 30th anniversary of the first title in the series, the Kickstarter for A Bard’s Tale IV will go live. Promising hardcore dungeon-delve mechanics, a bespoke, authentic Celtic musical experience, the combination of the Unreal IV engine and the use of photogrammetry on actual locations in the United Kingdom, A Bard’s Tale IV promises to be a manifold beautiful return to the storied world of the franchise.
