A Movie About Video Games That's Actually Worth Seeing

Here's a summary from the official site:

Indie Game: The Movie is a feature documentary about video games, their creators and the craft. The film follows the dramatic journeys of indie game developers as they create their games, and as they release those works, and themselves, to the world.

Indie Game: The Movie is about making video games, but at its core, it’s about the creative process and exposing yourself through your work.
The film tells the emotional story of a two-man team, Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, as they craft and release their first major game for XBOX, "Super Meat Boy". It follows Phil Fish, the creator of the highly- anticipated game, "Fez", as he shows it for the first time in 4 years at the giant gaming expo, PAX EAST. And, the film tells behind-the-scenes story an independent designer, Jonathan Blow, who made one of highest-rated video games of all-time, "Braid".
Four developers, three games, and one ultimate goal - to express one’s self through a video game.

Saint Seiya Headed to PS3

Saint Seiya Senki, a "cinematic melee action game" (Asura's Wrath-like?), is scheduled to hit the PS3 this Fall. All of these shonen melee games (Naruto, Bleach, Saint Seiya, Fist of the North Star, etc) remind me of Axe body spray for some reason. Weird. I highly doubt this game will land on U.S. soil though unless NIS America would love to do us the honor again ;)

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generation Revealed

Naruto games are getting just as consistent as the other fighters that are out there! This new game features characters new and OLD. Like Pre-time skip old. I'm excited to Darui joining the cast. C? No. But also making their return are Zabuza and Haku. We haven't seen them since the PS2 Ulitmate Ninja games. I hope this game makes some huge improvements from the last besides new characters. BALANCING.

scan credit goes to des of course!

What is Bleach: Soul Resurreccion's Online Content?

It's not online multiplayer. It's not DLC (costumes, characters, etc.). It's not Rukia staying in your closet. It's anime. Three whole episodes of Bleach!!!!

Yeah. I know... This is according to Gamestop though and it's also not an exclusive. If anything, I hope we can choose which episodes we want, but I bet it's only the first three. I wouldn't give up hope on DLC yet though. You never know.

Hatsune Miku Has Found a Home in the U.S.

 Popular virtual idol, Hatsune Miku, has finally landed a real home in the U.S. Announced yesterday, Viz Media has acquired product licensing rights. They plan on showing her off at the 2011 Licensing International Expo that's held in Las Vegas on June 14-16th. They'll be located in Booth #2481. I only ask that they please don't use MAN MIKU below.

Best News of the Week (at least for me)

Black Rock Shooter: The Game's opening video was released recently. I'm not a big fan of developers releasing opening videos way before the game's release but I'm a huge BRS fan and the temptation was too grand.
