Games To Movies

July 7, 2008

If you remember on April 1st, 2008, IGN.com posted their joke known as “The Legend Of Zelda: The Movie” trailer. Like many people, I thought it would make a good movie just by IGN’s faux trailer. So, now I’m wondering “what games could be turned into movies if done right?”. I, kind of, made a list of games I personally think could get the big screen treatment.

*Halo – I don’t have Xbox but, I would assume it could be a movie if done right.
*Megaman – If done right, it could be a good series. The birth of Megaman and Dr. Wily and Sigma teaming up some how. Protoman being bad but then turning good.
*Mario Bros. – I know there’s already a movie about them but, we need an ACCURATE remake. The only correct thing is the last name (Mario Mario & Luigi Mario) and they were from Brooklyn.
*Sonic The Hedgehog – If he can have 5 cartoon shows and many comics, why not do a movie? The way they do Sonic in the games now, they can do the same for a movie.
*Paper Mario – I’m sorry but, I would pay to watch a well done Paper Mario movie. That’s just me.

This is just a small list but I’m sure there’s some I’m missing (and some I can’t seem to think of). So, I say go for the gusto and post a comment of what you think would make a good Game-to-Movie.


What’s In YourSpace?

June 9, 2008

I’m sitting here just wondering “What might make a social network site better or how to improve one?” and a few things have struck me. I’m doing this on the fly so, bare with me.

*Intergrade Twitter: Now, when I say “Twitter”, I don’t mean just Twitter. That includes FriendFeed, Jakiu, Pownce, and whatever other like sites there are. Since these are getting more and more popular, it would make sense to add them internally than adding a widget.
*No Apps!: I hate all apps. Facebook started that shit and it’s nothing but spam enhancers. Now MySpace started making apps (a complete ripoff from Facebook) and… well, it’s just stupid.
*Don’t Go Pro: I’m sure some people would pay for a pro account that will add extra features but, why not just push them out out of love of your community?
*Spam Control: Easier said than done in most cases. There has to be more than doing CATCHPA’s or making the CATCHPA more stronger. Tho, CATCHPAs that are in the login page are also good.
*No Privacy: Why do you bother to join a social community if you’re going to make yourself private? If you have something to hide, you might want to not be on the internet at all. That’s more of an “iPetPeeve” of mines.

I’m sure there’s more I’m forgetting but thi sis the list for now.


A Question To Anyone Who Can Make Programs

Would it be hard to make an emulator that can play all the classic system roms in one file rather than downloading millions of emulators?


Is This Possible?

Would it be possible for the makers of Firefox to somewhat make an actual operating system (OS)?
Like, it would come with the Firefox browser, of course.
I can see the Windows Explorer or Finder/Spotlight file browser almost similar to XYplorer (great program for you Windows users) with a tabbed file browser almost like Firefox.

I guess my question is: if this is possible, would it be better than XP/Vista and any Mac OS?
