A film based on the Saints Row series

The director F. Gary Gray, known for the films Fast and Furious 8 and The Voice of the Streets, will be filming this crazy story about the saints from the third street.

The script for the film about amateurs of purple is written by Greg Russo, who had a hand in the scripts of two reboots of video game adaptations at once - "Resident Evil" and "Mortal Kombat". But since none of these films have been released yet, we cannot talk about quality.

Saints Row movie

However, Fenix Studios, Occupant Entertainment and Koch Films are involved in the creation of the film. The latter is owned by the German conglomerate Koch Media, which also reports to Deep Silver, which is responsible for the Saints Row series. That is, the developer will be directly involved in creating the picture. It pleases.

This is all that is known about the film so far. Recall that the game tells the story of a gang of saints from the third street, which fought for influence with other groups, and later with corporations, syndicates, the government and, ultimately, with space invaders. In general, if you have not played, we advise. We also recommend reading our article on why game films tend to be a total failure.

The creators of Earthworm Jim are going to make the third part of the legendary platformer. Alas, only for a little-known console

Earthworm Jim is a platformer that was released for the Sega Genesis back in 1994. Even 25 years later, this game evokes pleasant memories among gamers of that time. As it became known, the original team of developers is going to release the third part of the game, but with one small "but". The game will be released exclusively for the Intellivision Amico console.

Earthworm Jim

If you haven’t heard anything about it, and don’t understand what the catch is, now we will explain. One of the creators of the game, sound designer of the last two installments, Tommy Tallarico, is the CEO of Intellivision, which is going to release this console.

On May 4, the developers will host a broadcast for fans, where they will tell about their vision of the game, as well as give them some posters with art from the third part.

So what is this Amico? The developers are positioning it as a budget console for retro games. Its price will vary in the region of $ 150-180, and games for it will cost no more than $ 8. The console will be out next year.

Blizzard will skip Gamescom 2019

If we see something that will remind us of the "Blizzard" at Gamescom 2019, then only themed products for the games of the company. Blizzard itself announced on its official website that it will skip the annual Gamescom for the first time in several years.

The appeal says that the company will miss this major event in the gaming industry, which has not been missed for a long time. However, the message emphasizes that she will not miss the next event, and we will learn about all her new games in due time.

Diablo Immortal

No specific reasons were given in the message. Perhaps this is due to the fact that this year she simply does not have major releases. Recall that in 2019, the studio will be limited only to War Craft III Reforged, which no one asked for, and Diablo Immortal, which is already hated. Or is it again something to do with the bad influence of Activision on her.

Previously, the studio used this exhibition to make high-profile announcements, as it did with Star Craft II: Heart of the Swarm and World of Warcraft. Blizzard also occupied a fairly large part of the venue where the event takes place.

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 Brujah Clan Description

Last week we wrote that in Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 at the beginning of the game we will be given a choice of one of the key disciplines, while the next perks we can get by joining a certain vampire clan. They promised to tell us about each of them slowly, and today we are introduced to the Brujah clan.

The Brujah are rebels who do not recognize authority and authority. Often, vampires kinsfolk consider them troublemakers and mobs. Representatives of this clan you could see in the first part of the game in the person of Nines Rodriguez and Jack, who were part of the anarchist movement.


There are few anarch representatives left in Seattle. They all stay away from political intrigue and run an illegal fighting club for the undead in the city. The PC Gamer website talks about the following disciplines that Brujah possess.


  • You are physically strong
  • The Fist of Caine ability helps you knock enemies long distances with one hit.
  • Tremors - You hit the ground with all your might and launch a shockwave that knocks enemies away. You can swing the ability so that the impact will crack, causing damage.

Celerity [Swiftness]:

  • You have improved agility
  • Invisible Storm - allows you to make a quick dash to the side to disappear from the enemy's field of view or dodge a blow.
  • "Haste" - you can slow down time to dodge bullets.

Learn more about the clan in the video.

SEGA will increase the number of ports on the PC

The reason for this was good sales and profit from the boyars' PC. Summing up the financial results of the last year, the company realized that it did not fit into the plans for 2020. There are too many games in development, and all of them will not be released soon.

Yakuza pc

So, the company decided to port its old games to PC, because the ports Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza 0, which recently came out in incentive, showed good results. SEGA will soon be porting other games to this platform. Thus, she is going to expand her audience. This means we'll see more franchises from the Persona, Yakuza and Sonic the Hedgehog series soon. In terms of new titles, the company will try to no longer make PS4 exclusives and will focus on all current platforms.

And finally, SEGA is going to release on the international market games that were previously distributed only in Asia. It is nice to know that not only the European and American gaming markets are heading for Asia, but their market will also respond.

Star Wars Battlefront Coming To Steam &

May 4 is World Star Wars Day. In honor of this holiday, all digital stores traditionally arrange discounts on games in this universe. This time Disney decided to please the hearts of oldfags and the very first Star Wars Battlefront, released in 2004, will go on sale on Steam and

Price on Steam is 259 rubles, and on 249 rubles. However, on holiday they will also have a small discount.

Star Wars Battlefront

Multiplayer, alas, is limited: you can only connect via a local network or directly over IP. It's strange that when the big-eared company returned the second Battlefront to the shelves, normal multiplayer was immediately resurrected in it. Why this time they didn't bother to do it is unclear. But thanks for that too. By the way, check out our top of the best Star Wars games for a reason.
