Mario Jumpman Mario, star of the mario game franchise might be getting a fully animated movie courtesy of Illumination Entertainment. According to The Wall Street Journal there is a major agreement wrapping up between the Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment that could lead to not only a Mario movie but possible also more, whether that be from the Mario franchise or maybe even some of Nintendo’s other franchises like Zelda or Metroid.

Illumination Entertainment, makers of movies such as, the Despicable Me franchise, and The Lorax, have been talking to Nintendo for more than a year about the movie. The potential deal follows an agreement Universal Studios made with Nintendo two years ago to build attractions based on Mario and other characters.

Nintendo CEO, Tatsumi Kimishima had said in an interview with the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun that the company was talking with several Hollywood studios about making movies based on its games. Mr. Kimishima had said that the company is making theme-park and movie deals less for the potential profits from licensing than for the additional sales revenue that could come from “synergy with the dedicated video game business.”

While Nintendo has been highly cautious about making movies based on their different franchises after the disastrous 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. movie, mostly sticking to making the pokemon movies. video game movies have had more failures than successes, like the Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed movies, Shigeru Miyamoto has apparently been part of the talks and will likely be a producer on the movie, along with Chris Meledandri.

While rumors of Zelda and Mario movies have existed for years this may be the closest we’ve gotten to a proper  and successful video game movie. If this Mario movie ends up being profitable it could pave the way for more good movie adaptations. Let’s all wish for this movies success

Helldivers 2 players now have a new major order that, if completed, will bring the EXO-49 Emancipator Exosuit into action. This is something we’ve been looking forward to since March, when we first caught a grainy glimpse of the machine in action. We loved the older EXO-45 Patriot model, which has a Gatling gun and a bunch of powerful missiles, but we could see ourselves going in a different direction, especially when we were up against the Automatons.

They will have to put in some work, though, as is always the case. Helldivers need to free an Automaton “Petafactory” in order to start making these good horses for mass deployment. It’s time to teach the people of Varylia 5 how to run a managed democracy, if only for our own good.

Are you a fan of the EXO-45 Patriot mech, or are you having trouble fitting it into your tried-and-true plans? What do you think about the EXO-49 amnesty? Does it make you want to? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Hideo Kojima is George Miller’s first choice for a video game adaptation of Mad Max

George Miller, who directed the Mad Max movies, thinks that people are ready for another adventure game. However, only a game made at “the highest level” by an auteur, like Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame, will do.

It’s been said that Kojima thinks of George Miller as a god, and the Mad Max series is his personal Bible. On paper, this seems like a perfect match. Miller said that he would “never ask” the famous game designer to make such a game because he is sure that Kojima already has “so much fantastic stuff in his own head.” The “will they/won’t they” moment was caught on camera on the red carpet at the premiere of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The most recent Mad Max video game, which came out in 2015, “wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be,” says Miller. We hope Miller or at least one of his employees can get these two movie moguls to work on something together. We are sure Kojima would be very pleased.
