It's not even funny anymore. Seriously. Movies making the transfer to video games need to stop somewhere. While we knew a game based on the amazingly fantastic testosterone-fest 300
was inevitable, we have no idea who thought making a game based on the torture/puzzle movies of the Saw
universe made any sense at all. What's next, Hostel: The Game
? That would be crap.
New publisher Brash Entertainment is paving the way, deciding to cater exclusively to games based off of movies, TV, or music licenses. They've already got 5 movie studios to support them, with over 12 projects underway including the two we've mentioned. Not Hostel
, though. Not yet. We always wish every developer and publisher the best of luck, but this Brash Entertainment ... it deserves a slap. Unless movie/TV games start to show us something that doesn't suck, we've got nothing more to say. If they make 300
suck, that's it. No more movie games. Ever.
