Guillermo Del Toro Wants to Make a Bioshock Movie

Let’s wind the calendar all the way back to August 2015. When Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima saw the cancellation of the famous Silent Hills by the hands of Konami. People might remember the popular quote Mr. Del Toro said after seeing this outrage happen.

“I joined THQ [to work on Insane], and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. So I have decided that in order not to destroy anyone else’s life, I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll work with someone and his house would explode or something, you know?”

It seems like a tragic end to a very enthusiastic person who wanted to be involved in video games. And it was indeed a very sad day for gamers everywhere, as they wouldn’t see him again until his involvement with Death Stranding. However, it seems like Del Toro will be returning to video games in his own way. By recently declaring he wants to make a film adaptation to the gaming classic Bioshock.

In the piece written for Shortlist, del Toro says: “As for making movies out of games, the one I could really see is BioShock. I would love to make it into a movie. Gore Verbinski was attached to it, and he would have been perfect.” This project Mr. Del Toro talks about is a failed movie project that was in pre-production. It was ended due to the high costs (Around $200 MD) in 2013.

Considering the apparent curse that game related movies have seen, Guillermo talks about this as well admitting that most games are “Impossible to make into movies”.

“They’re two completely different narrative forms. Yet for decades there was that game curse on superhero movies, except for the original Superman and Batman films.” Guillermo Explains. “Most people thought the rest were unadaptable. Then they found a way to do it, and it worked. Something will happen that will allow a truly great video game movie.”

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
