New ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Posters & Soundtrack News!

Pop Quiz time!

Do you know this man? Have you ever been at the receiving end of his “burst into flames and launch at you” move?

Of course you do, we all do! That is none other than M. Bison from Street Fighter. He’s not looking so 8-bit these days though as he has gotten the star treatment in one of the newest posters released for Wreck-It Ralph.

For years I’ve decided to wait for Disney movies to come out on video to watch them. I don’t have kids and it feels a little weird sometimes being the only adult by themselves in a theater full of grade schoolers. Please note that this does not apply to the recent relaunch of Beauty and the Beast, as I was mowing down tiny little girls in princess outfits in order to get a good seat. I feel no shame over my actions.

Not so much with this movie. I will be standing in line with the 10 year-olds, just as excited as they. I have a feeling though, I will not be the only childless “old” person there. Not only do we have M. Bison, but there’s Q-Bert, and Mr. Eggman, and Bowser, and Sonic, and Coily, and Paperboy (!!!), and Dig-Dug, and OH MY GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

Speaking of Sonic and others- they too have gotten a makeover and starring spot in new posters.

Lest they be outshined by all the old schoolers, the original cast of Wreck-It Ralph got their own poster.

Even though the internet has been quite atwitter with the revelation that there will be no Mario, I think we can all agree that this is an impressive list of characters from games throughout the ages. And who’s to say, that if a sequel is made (let’s not kid ourselves here- this movie has a very broad appeal so the chances of a sequel are high) Nintendo might change their minds and we’d see everyone’s favorite plumbers on the big screen in no time. If you can’t wait until then, check out this on Netflix.

In other news, do you remember this song?

Oh yes, get excited folks, because the geniuses that brought us Pac-Man Fever and my personal favorite Ode to a Centipede, Gary Garcia and Jerry Bruckner have lent their talents to the Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack. If pop songs about 80’s video games aren’t your things, don’t fret because AKB48, Skrillex, and Owl City have also contributed. Henry Jackman, who did Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, composed the score.

And if all this wasn’t enough- there’s a new trailer.

The soundtrack will be released on October 30th and I’ll see you at the theater on November 2nd.

I’ll be the one in the Princess Peach outfit.

CCI 2012: Video Games News Recap (Day 1)

If you are a huge video game fan like me, you might be disappointed with how little information regarding upcoming games was released today. Either case, there are some noteworthy ones. Let’s just get straight to the point.

Borderlands 2 Wimoweh trailer

2K Games released a trailer for Borderlands 2, showcasing its environments and enemies. The premise of the trailer itself is actually pretty smart. Foes are seemingly presented as predators on plains, and the protagonists as hunters. We also manage to catch a glimpse of character abilities. Not bad.

Two Screenshots from Grand Theft Auto: V

As the title suggests, we have two more pictures from the upcoming GTA. The game is shaping up great. What made GTA: IV memorable was its city Рthe city was as much of a character as Niko Bellic. Look at the guy dipping his feet in the waters in the second screenshot, and tell me Rockstar Games is not busting their asses trying to create another lively open-world experience.

Live Action Street Fighter TV Series in the Making

Now this is scary. No Street Fighter games convey storylines good enough to generate any form of motion picture entertainment. It was proven in the mess back in 1994, as well as the one in 2009. Anyways, the producer of the series will be someone who made this:

Titled Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the story will follow Ken and Ryu through their early years when they were living in the wild and being secluded and all that stereotypical Asian warrior bullshit. There, they learn some fighting skills from Gouken. Unbeknownst to Ken and Ryu, they’re practicing Ansatsuken, which has a dark and tragic legacy.¬† Yea, that’s pretty much it. The press release claims that the story will be “thrilling” and “multi-layered”.

Yea, whatever.

I just had to. Guile theme does go with everything.

Gamers Gotta Get: Street Fighter X Tekken

Ever since Street Fighter X Tekken was announced last year, fans have been chomping at the bit for it. 2 out of 3 of the biggest fighting games out there, Mortal Kombat being the third, combining to bring us some seriously kick-ass action. I’m excited, Japan is excited, and you should be too. But as always, you don’t need to take my word for it. I bring evidence to the table.

First take a look at the cinematic trailer, which is pretty epic:
