Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Explained

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Sat, 05/25/2019 - 00:05

There was once a period of the Jedi Order’s history before the dark times that was only hinted at in the decades following the release of Star Wars. There were rumors of thousands of Jedi Knights as peacekeepers, traversing the galaxy to root out and stop the spread of evil. It wasn’t until the 2003 release of the PC/Xbox game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (known by fans as KOTOR) from LucasArts and BioWare that Star Wars fans got a firsthand look at the Jedi at the height of their power—and be one of them. It’s the game that put BioWare at the top of many gamers’ list of favorite studios, and KOTOR has been commonly considered a classic story of the Jedi Knights in the years since.

Why Retro Gaming Fans Should Be Excited About the Sega Genesis Mini

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 23:28

When Nintendo announced the NES Classic, it set a great precedent for how a first-party should treat its gaming history. Nintendo followed up and improved on the formula with the Super NES Classic, and both systems remain the high-water mark for all-in-one classic consoles. But the Sega Genesis Mini is shaping up to be the new gold-standard.

If you care at all about video game history and preservation, you should absolutely add the Genesis Mini to your collection. How can I say something so authoritatively without having so much as seen one in person, much less tested out the games inside? It's easy: M2 is handling the development of the software.

Castlevania Anniversary Collection Review

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 23:20

In an era of classics, minis, and collections where rewind buttons, remixed roms, and refined emulation have become common perks for people revisiting classics, old games are getting the royal treatment these days. Unfortunately, the Castlevania Anniversary Collection has none of those. But it does boast the best games, emulation warts and all, of any recent collection (the Mega Man Legacy Collection is its closest rival). Most of the eight Castlevania games compiled here feel great, look great, and sound great, and though the only real emulation feature is a single save state per game, that’s enough. The Castlevania games are that good.

Rocketman Review

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 23:00

Rocketman is now playing in the UK. It opens in Australia on May 30 and in the US on May 31.

You wait for a biopic about a British music legend and two come along within a few months of each other. Not only that but they also have the same director involved. However, where Bohemian Rhapsody failed for some, Rocketman makes up for it in spades. Taron Egerton is Elton John in Dexter Fletcher’s stunning biopic that lays out, warts and all, the turbulent life and times of the English singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer.

The Kingsman actor doesn’t just play John; he is consumed by him in a role that you expect to see him nominated for Best Actor from the Oscars to BAFTAs and beyond come awards season. His flawless performance, including his chill-inducing vocals, is outstanding.

Genies Weren't Always So Nice Like in Aladdin

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 21:58

If you’re hoping to find a magic lamp containing an all-powerful genie, be careful what you wish for.

Despite what Aladdin, I Dream of Jeannie or modern paranormal pop culture promise, tapping into phenomenal cosmic powers – contained in an itty-bitty living space – can lead to a world of hurt. Like the song says, you ain’t never had a friend like a genie, but millennia of folklore suggest you probably will wish you didn’t.

In modern entertainment, such as Disney’s new live-action Aladdin based on the 1992 animated film, genies are powerful beings trapped within a lamp, and relegated to granting wishes to masters. Jafar’s fate in the animated film also suggests a human can be transformed into a genie. But that’s not at all how things started for genies…

Marvel Teases X-Men's Most Important Scene in History

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 21:27

Marvel Comics is gearing up for the relaunch of the entire line of X-Men comics under writer Jonathon Hickman this Fall. We already know that things will kick off in July with a pair of event mini-series called Powers of X and House of X, and now Marvel has tweeted out a page drawn by artist R.B. Silva that promises to be “The most important scene in the history of the X-Men.”

Taika Waititi-Directed Akira Movie to Open in 2021

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 21:26

Fans of Akira and dynamic Hollywood director Taika Waititi, rejoice! The release date for Waititi's live-action Akira film has finally been announced.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the live-action adaptation of the iconic manga/anime is set to hit theaters on May 21, 2021.

Before Waititi's involvement was set in stone, he told IGN he wasn't interested in simply remaking the iconic animated film. As a fan of the books, he said he'd much rather go back to the manga source material for inspiration and focus on casting Asian leads if he ended up directing.

Harrison Ford Says No One Else Can Play Indiana Jones After Him

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 21:14

Via Time, Ford spoke on NBC's Today and stated how in the future, if he has his way, no other actor would ever again take up the whip and hat as, according to Ford, he is the one and only Indiana Jones.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered for Switch Review

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 21:02

The Nintendo Switch version of Assassin's Creed III Remastered is the version I most wanted to play after hearing the initial announcement. The idea of taking a last-gen console Assassin's Creed game and putting it on Switch sounded totally within the realm of possibility. And having played through the PC and console versions of Assassin’s Creed III Remastered for review, I was excited to have that same experience. Unfortunately, it turns out to be an ugly mess that barely looks better than it did on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and yet somehow runs worse.

Much like the recent Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered runs terribly in docked mode whenever anything happens. It's incredibly noticeable in the opening scene, as the camera pans over the full opera house. The framerate drops way below 30fps, and at times looks like it's struggling to hit 10fps. Outside of the detailed and busy opera house, it doesn't fare much better. Animations, which already look dated, are made even worse by the lousy framerate.

Here's Where to Get an Officially-Licensed 6-Button Sega Genesis Mini Controller

Entertaiment News - IGN Entertainment - Fri, 05/24/2019 - 20:19

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

The Sega Genesis Mini looks like it's going to be the real-deal as far as high-quality all-in-one classic consoles go. With 40 games, two controllers, an AC adapter packed into the box, and authentic 1990s styling, it's looking closer to the NES Classic and Super NES Classic than it is to the PS Classic.

There's one slight problem, though. In spite of the fact some of the games announced for Sega Genesis Mini are almost unplayable on the traditional 3-button controller, the superior 6-button controller isn't available with the US Sega Genesis Mini. The Japanese Mega Drive Mini has a pair right in the box, but here in the States, we're stuck with 50% fewer controller buttons.
