A quick googly search for some recent offerings, shows that unfortunately the trend is set to continue. You'd think some accountant would notice flop after infamous flop, but apparently there is still some money to be made in rushing a title to market to coincide with a film's release.
So I sat back and smiled smugly to myself, secure in the knowledge my filmgamedar and goosebumps will protect me well into the future. But the smile quickly vanished as I noticed a copy of Doom in my dvd collection.
Several minutes later, and out of breath I scanned my hastily scribbled list of game to film adaptations in my dvd collection. And for the last hour have searched and searched for an excuse as to why my Bloodrayne (yes both of them) dvds are nestled next to my much cherished copy of Blade Runner, and despairing that a copy of the straight to dvd release of Dead Or Alive, is rubbing shoulders with my copy of Downfall.....
So the images above an apology of sorts and the dawning of some insight as to why I'm a complete sucker for game to film releases..... :(
