The game about putting food out to attract stray cats is getting the live-action movie treatment in Japan. As long as the real cats receive adorable little x-shaped buttholes in post-production, how can a Neko Atsume movie possibly fail?
Once in every generation, there comes an artist too transgressive, too challenging, too persistently, deliberately incompetent to be appreciated in his own time. For low-budget video game movie adaptions of the mid-2000s, Uwe Boll was that artist. And now he is saying goodbye.
With the worldwide box office topping $370 million, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft has stolen the title of top-grossing video game movie from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Didn’t we hate both of those?
The biggest comedic moment in The Angry Birds Movie happens when two characters find out the giant lake they’ve been swimming in is a massive pool of Mighty Eagle’s urine. They were spitting the water in each other’s mouths before that. Surely, The Angry Birds Movie only exists because of deep-seated insecurity.
The most popular versions of Tetris only concern themselves with how the player engages with the mechanics of the play experience. It’s a video game with no characters, story, antagonistic action or subtext. So of course people are going to make a movie out of it.

They're living the dream of playing video games while millions of people around the world watch. But, money and fans aside, high-stakes competitive eSports comes with its own unique ups-and-downs. What's that like? A new documentary takes viewers along for a look inside a year with one of the biggest Starcraft 2 teams…
Usually, you have to wait months, years or decades before someone decides to pour blood, sweat and tears to make a filmed adaptation of a video game. Not with Titanfall. Work's already underway on an effect-heavy series set in the world of Respawn's mech-happy future. Looks pretty damn spiffy, if you ask me.
You hear the scare-logic all the time from folks who want to blame video games for bad stuff: they're just training simulations for how to hurt people. A new sci-fi film project riffs on that premise and places it in a future where all you need to do to play an online game is stick a giant network wire on the back of…

Look, it's pretty clear that the Need for Speed movie is trying to draft off the success of the Fast & Furious films. But the upcoming Dreamworks feature needs, like, 1000% more crazy.

It seemed like Mortal Kombat was dead for a while there. No games, no movies, no Fatalities. But now, the gory fighting franchise is back, with a movie in development and season two of a slickly-made web series making its debut today. (The first episode is above.)
