In an exclusive ad on Yahoo for Star Trek: The Video Game, William Shatner, the one and true Captain James Tiberius Kirk, once again battles his nemesis the Gorn – a reptilian humanoid alien he fought in the original Star Trek episode Arena.

You can’t swing an old-school wired joystick without hitting a video game that’s currently being turned into a movie. Assassin’s Creed, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Splinter Cell and World of Warcraft are all headed to the big screen sooner rather than later.
And now Paul Walker (from the Fast & Furious flicks) will be scraping a razor across his noggin for a cinematic reboot of Hitman, this time simply called Agent 47. Which sounds like the worst game-to-movie casting choice since Mark Wahlberg played Max Payne.
But where’s Kratos?
“Which games are good? What are people playing?”
I’m asked these questions frequently. There’s no shortage of gaming coverage out there, but it’s not always easily digestible for the casual crowd and weekend warriors. Subscribing to nerd culture podcasts strikes many gamers as a little intense. Still, they want to know what’s new and what’s worth their time.
Rumour has it that the new PlayStation 4, which most people expect will be unveiled on Feb. 20, will cost over $400.
So if you’re a Star Wars fanatic who spent most of the ’80s in a sweaty arcade, trying to impress your friends with your mad pinball skills, then you might be excited to hear that Star Wars Pinball is about to make a comeback.
Remember when Sony first unveiled the PlayStation Vita, and we all rejoiced? “It’s got two thumbsticks! Finally, we can play proper first-person shooters on a handheld!” And then: crickets. And then: Resistance: Burning Skies, which was very bad. And then: crickets. And then: Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, which was even worse. Maybe this is a dream that just needs to die.
Killzone: Mercenary is Sony’s next attempt to bring a full-fledged, big-boy console shooter experience to the Vita. Will it work? Should it work? Can it work?
Maybe. Yes. And I’m not entirely sure.
The Playstation crew announced via their blog today that the online store will be getting a facelift.
Sony gathered feedback from users and applied it to the new interface set for launch, Oct. 23.
The revamp addresses search issues, and a lack of information on the products available through the store. Playstation has over 20,000 game-related downloads available through their online portal.
I love The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For all its little flaws and bugs and nuisances, it’s a meal I intend to keep nibbling on over time, stretching my Skyrim experience out as long as possible. Maybe 100 hours, maybe more. We’ll see.
But after seeing this video, my love for Skyrim feels slightly tainted.
If there’s one thing most Star Wars fans can agree upon – other than George Lucas violated our memories of the original trilogy by way of an emo Anakin and jibbering Jar-Jar – it’s that The Empire Strikes Back was a better film than the original Star Wars itself.
