Nolan Announces Plans for an "Inception" Video Game

Lately, it seems that it is almost customary, if not expected for movies to have a self-titled video game inspired by said movie. I've never been a fan of that. I'm all for video games turned movies (if done right); but usually not vice-versa. But here's one idea I hope comes to fruition.

The genius who brought us "The Dark Knight" and "Memento" wants to transform his latest film, a little movie called "Inception," into a video game!! As an uber "Inception" fan who has gone to see the movie at a certain questionable rate (a number that shall remain confidential), it's my (unbiased) opinion that "Inception" is just one of those unique and brilliant worlds that I think would do spectacularly as a game. Nolan tells Variety, all the right things.

"One thing we are looking at doing is developing a video game based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film...that's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long-term, in a couple of years."

As much as I would love the "Inception" video game yesterday, I am happy to wait in the "long-term," if that means an adaption done right. To date, "Inception" has grossed over $750 million worldwide. [Source: Variety via Kotaku]


Miyavi x Good Charlotte Collaboration

Just announced -- MIYAVI, the genius that rightly imbues the title "samurai guitarist" is teaming up with American band GOOD CHARLOTTE on their new song, "Like It’s Her Birthday,“ providing awesome riffs in a way only MIYAVI can do!

“Like It’s Her Birthday” will be released on the new album on November 27th in Japan; prior to its release in America.

GOOD CHARLOTTE’s staff actually saw MIYAVI's New York City performance and recommended him to the brothers. MIYAVI met up with the band in Tokyo on August 26th to begin work. The members already had a lot of positive things to day about the guitarist. Benji Madden said, “When we were recording ‘Like It’s Her Birthday’, I heard MIYAVI’s guitar and I liked it instantly. It was the best. I thought that it was the sound I wanted for the new album and got so many ideas.”

MIYAVI has already been preparing for his new album, “WHAT’S MY NAME?“, and it’s due to come out on October 13th. It will contain album versions of “SURVIVE” and “SUPER HERO.” It will also have his new single “TORTURE,” bringing the track number up to 14 songs total. [Source: tokyohive]
