Game Newz: No WOW for Boll, DC vs. MK, more

The Assassin’s Creed Tweak Guide is now available at Tweak Guides. It contains not only full descriptions of exactly what all the in-game settings do, but also compares DX9 to DX10 mode, details all the advanced .ini tweaking possible with the game, and provides a range of troubleshooting tips spread throughout the guide.

It turns out the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) creators at Rockstar Games simply are not interested in turning their signature series into a movie. Rockstar cofounder Dan Houser gave Variety an extended interview that touched on a slew of topics, including the noticeable absence of a cinematic GTA adaptation. This comes after Eminem had agreed to play star role in a GTA movie project last year; the project has been dropped.

Speaking of Gamer Movies…. Blizzard has apparently iced German film director Uwe Boll‘s interest in adopting the rights for a World of Warcraft film. Uwe told MTV “I got in contact with Paul Sams of Blizzard, and he said, ‘We will not sell the movie rights, not to you… especially not to you because it’s such a big online game success, maybe a bad movie would destroy that ongoing income, what the company has with it.”

German film director Uwe Boll has practically destroyed every video game based film he has earned the right and funding to including Bloodrayne, Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead, and In the Name of the King (Dungeon Siege). Scheduled for release in 2008 include Far Cry, and Postal. Alread in pre-production for 2009 are Alone in the Dark II, Sabotage 1943, Zombie Massacre, and Bloodrayne 3. Boll will also be lucky to not be banned from American theaters after Memorial Day this year, due to the bold release of Postal.

Rockstar Games announced today the release dates for Midnight Club: Los Angeles on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as well as Midnight Club: LA Remix for the PlayStation Portable. All three versions of the game will arrive in North American stores on September 9, with European releases scheduled for September 12.

Yes, that is Batman facing Sub-Zero…. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe shall invade us Fall 2008. Here is the official site with a teaser video, artwork, and more. There will be 20 playable characters, all either known Kombat or DC characters.
