REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Ken Levine Opted "To Kill" The BioShock Movie

Posted on Tuesday, March 12 @ 14:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Ken Levine has been working with Universal and film director Gore Verbinski in an effort to get a BioShock film made, but after the pieces weren't lining up like the Irrational Games boss hoped, he decided to call the whole thing off.

“The studio then got cold feet about making an R-rated $200 million film, and they said what if it was a $80 million film – and Gore didn’t want to make a $80 million film,” Levine explained at a BAFTA talk (via Eurogamer). “They brought another director in, and I didn’t really see the match there – and 2K’s one of these companies that puts a lot of creative trust in people. So they said if you want to kill it, kill it. And I killed it.”

If history is any indication, there's a good chance the movie would have turned out to be a disappointment, blemishing the franchise for years to come. You've got to commend Levine for his desire to not move forward on something unless he's sure he can do right by his audience. Speaking of which... Don't forget that BioShock Infinite launches on March 26th!
