It’s no secret that Video game movies have been very poor in the past.

Think about the terrible Super Mario movie,

or the horrible Alone in the Dark..

Silent Hill

or even Double Dragon.

More recent attempts have also been lackluster, like Warcraft.

 

That being said, the trailers and buzz surrounding Assassin's Creed the movie is very positive and the fact that star Michael Fassbender is heavily involved even past the fact that he is the main star, it could be the movie that changes our opinions on Gaming Films the way the Batman Begins changed it for Superheros.

 

The other Video Game film announced for development is Gears of War, please don’t mess that up Hollywood. Early news is The Rock could be up for the role of Marcus, so here’s hoping it's a good film.

Nintendo Switch is the name finally given to the top secret game console from the video game giants.

Once again Nintendo look at breaking the mould of traditional consoles which they achieved with the Wii and had minor success on the Wii U.

Now the console is also portable, so you can plug it into a docking station and play on your TV or slide the controllers on to the left and right of a portable screen and game on the go.

It’s a pretty amazing piece of technology but the real test will be just how powerful the hardware is as in the past Nintendo's have fallen well below the stats of xbox and playstation.

I am looking forward to this though because you don’t need a ridiculous amount of power to play great games like Mario, Zelda and of course Mario Kart. The release is locked in for March 2017,
