video game news legend of zelda amazon tv show rumor

Remember that rumored Netflix Legend of Zelda show that Nintendo's president said was not real?  Well, the rumor is back again, this time at Amazon.  A fellow named Lulla at a website called Season Zero is claiming to have exclusive news that the Legend of Zelda show is filming a pilot for Amazon's 2016 new shows.  When asked for a source, Lulla responded with "I’m my own source. 'EXCLUSIVE' means what it means," so take this rumor with a healthy heap of salt.  I guess both Nintendo of America and Amazon are located in the same state, so, there's that?  

Season Zero says the pilot is filming this summer in New York and Savannah, GA, so if you happen to live out in Savannah, keep an eye out for Hylians; they may not just be cosplayers!

Noooooooo!  If you believed the recent rumors of Silent Hills coming back to life as an Xbox One exclusive, you may want to go grab a bowl of ice cream and some tissues.  The dream is dead.  Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has stated that the rumor is completely untrue.  But hey, at least he's heard the rumor.  Maybe it'll get him thinking about making it happen? [Insert quiet sobbing here]

Take this all with a grain of salt; it's purely rumor, but if it's true we'll be able to dry our collective nerd tears and replace them with delighted, terrified screams as early as next year.

An anonymous industry insider is claiming that Microsoft is trying to buy Silent Hills now that Konami has shut the project down.  If true, the game would become an Xbox One exclusive, and the source claims it could be out as soon as March of next year.  The logic is that the Xbox One is in desperate need of exclusive games, and Microsoft wants to secure a big title in time for E3.  Konami has moved to mobile development, and thus has no need for a property like the Silent Hill series, which they are now in a position to sell for billions of dollars.  Supposedly the PT demo disappeared from the Sony store as a show of good faith in Konami's commitment to the deal.

Can the source be trusted?  This person apparently originally leaked information that the Xbox One would be sold without a Kinect attached during a time in which Microsoft claimed they would never seperate the two.  I wouldn't get your hopes up too high though, it's entirely possible that this is all completely untrue, and even if the intent is there, the deal may not go through.

2K Games has started promoting something called "Advent," which seems to be a game about a futuristic, gated community that features surveillance for your protection, genetic mutation, and something that is definitely amiss.  So, you know, BioShock.  There's a site up that promotes the Advent community, with such claims as "our citizens deserve to experience everything life has to offer—free from harm and sickness. We promise nothing less than a brighter future for all."  However, if you hover around the propaganda long enough, the site holds some additional secrets.



We'll probably have to wait until E3 to see what this is, but if you're a betting person, a new BioShock seems likely.

There's a good chance it'll be the long rumored, never confirmed Victory, set in Victorian London.  Rumor has it the game is now being called "Syndicate."

Pip pip, cheerio, and all that rot.

In an interview with Time, Nintendo president Saruto Iwata crushed dreams and dispelled rumors that Netflix is involved with a Legend of Zelda tv show:

In early February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix was developing a live-action series based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise. But Mr. Iwata says those rumors are inaccurate.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,” says Iwata.

The show's existence seemed questionable to begin with, but if you're desperate to keep hope alive, note that Iwata does say the rumors are "inaccurate" and not flat out false.  Maybe there is something in the works, just not with Netflix.  Or maybe Netflix is working on something for Nintendo, just not a Zelda series.  Or maybe nothing is happening at all.  There's that possibility too.

Q: "When or if are we going to be getting Borderlands 3?"
A: "I'll tell you what. We don't know—that's the honest answer—but if you come back to our main theater panel on Sunday, you might get a little more than that."

Since the release of Far Cry 4's cover art, internet sleuths have been trying to figure out everything they can about it; is that the player character? What's the deal with that aryan looking tool in purple? Creative Director Alex Hutchinson has done us the service of clearing some of it up:


Meanwhile, plot details for the game have supposedly leaked on a pre-order page for the game in the Uplay store. The now removed description of the game said:

In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.

---

The free Limited Edition upgrade includes Hurk's Redemption, a series of three-action packed single-player missions. You'll embark on an epic quest to find a rare artifact while using "The Impaler" harpoon gun.

I guess we'll just have to wait for E3 to find out what's going on with this game.

GamePointsNow is reporting that the next game in the Borderlands series is going to be a prequel set on the moon, Elpis, and is said to be taking place between the events of the first and second game.

Oxygen will play a huge role in the game, in fact it's actually going to be lootable in the form of OX -Kits.This adds a whole new layer to the combat with you requiring to manage your own oxygen levels while battling your foes, although it does lead to the option of shattering an enemies helmet to instantly deprive them of precious O2 and gain an advantage.

What do you think; bollocks or totally true? If it is true, are you stoked about the idea of Borderlands on the moon?

Techradar claims to have a confidential source telling them Sony is going to announce a VR headset good enough to rival the Oculus Rift at GDC, which starts on March 17th. Some suggest the announcement is coming at GDC rather than E3 in order to steal the spotlight away from Titanfall. What do you think, could a virtual reality headset put the PS4 ahead of the Xbone? Let us know in the comments below.
