Star Wars 1313 Is Probably Gone For Good Now… Despite Petitions & Incredible Gameplay Reveal

Star Wars 1313 Cancelled

Despite a pretty noble Petition Of Over 7,800 Signatures Disney has failed to keep perhaps the most special project of all Star Wars gaming history alive. Worked on passionately by the team at Lucasarts and revealed to the world with real gameplay that clearly showed Star Wars 1313 was perhaps beyond Mass Effect and Uncharted in its level of cinematic action, this project has probably just gotten its final death blow. The US Patent and Trademark Office has revealed that the trademark for the game’s name has been abandoned.

Gamers, hold on to hope – and keep signing that petition.

There’s a remote chance this game project could live on but just have a different name. Unfortunately, given Disney’s track record and LucasFilm’s candid attitude about using the 1313 technology in their films without crediting the original team who developed it – this could just be wishful thinking. RealGamerNewz will keep the world updated with this story as it progresses, take a look at the game below to see what the fuss is all about.

Heavy Metal – Retro Film Review

Heavy Metal Retro Film Review RealGamerNewz

First of all this movie is not safe for kids! So please respect yourself by watching it only in the presence of adults. There’s plenty of nudity both necessary and perhaps a little unnecessary, but the world that Heavy Metal depicts shows us that whether in a faraway future or distant past, evil has always been right there within us all waiting for the chance to grow stronger and control us completely. The world that Heavy Metal depicts is both a faraway future and a long forgotten past where alien and human society have merged on Earth. New York City is even more crowded than ever, with traffic backed up as far as the eye can see, and even the air is full of cars. This is a world where alien and human society have merged on Earth.

Ancient tales of the battle between good and evil are told as this film serves to introduced the universe of Heavy Metal that was later brought to an even larger and more defined vision in the film’s sequel. A mysterious green orb, which will later be detailed in the film’s many scenarios and its sequel Heavy Metal 2000, commands a little girl representing the new generation to listen to its many stories. This green orb has been many places, and seen many things. The film uses this storytelling technique to deliver a quantum experience that offers multiple realities which are all tied together in some way, and will eventually set the stage for an even larger story to be played out.

Heavy Metal is a franchise from the past. Its original release date was 1981 and while many reviewers bashed it, they didn’t know what they were witnessing. Back then nobody cared about reviews, nobody even saw them usually. Entertainment thrived in a person to person, word of mouth environment where every franchise stood or fell based on its worth as judged by the people you knew in life, not by some reviewers being handed a copy of everything for free (yeah I went there).

This film is a film that seems to have been misunderstood by a great amount of reviewers who watched it. While many find the themes of sex, violence, and the fragility of women (only to be later cancelled out by female characters playing strong hero roles later down the line) to be “sexist” and claim Heavy Metal is nothing more than a “juvenile b00bfest”, they have missed the point of this film entirely. These dark themes and extremely crude male characters represent the dark and the evil in the world we live in today. Heavy Metal is a parable with reality that shows the great amount of negativity and violent forces that dominate our existence.

These evils are painted to be everywhere and the film shows us that even the smallest thoughts inside of us need merely a small push from this green orb to turn what was already inside of us into the way we behave. The greed, lust, and overall disregard for human life that is shown in this film is the villain to be conquered and is perhaps the most well illustrated, well written, and most terrifying villain of entertainment history. This villain is known to many as the Loc-Nar and we are eventually taught (if we are willing to listen) that the female gender which represents life and light is in fact the most sacred creature to the male which represents human nature and the darkness which surrounds us when we are lacking in the care and knowledge of the ultimate consequences of our actions.

Heavy Metal was truly ahead of its time. The integration of humans with aliens as normal is a theme that has barely had its surface scratched in modern film with the exception of a few surprisingly deep films like The Fifth Element, District 51, and of course Avatar. Beyond that, the deeper overarching themes which lies beneath the literal actions taking place (if you are aware enough to read into them) approach the subjects of society, human nature, and morality in a way that is completely real and unrestricted by ‘politically correct’ standards set by our increasingly hypocritical entertainment industry and its massive audiences.

Final Verdict: With plenty of babes to lust over, a deep and meaningful message, amazing animated hand-drawn graphics, and iconic heavy metal music (duh) from the time period you just don’t get these days, and plenty of the devilish blood, guts, and gore that you’ve all become accustomed to in the modern era, Heavy Metal stands the test of time for revisiting film buffs and newcomers alike. Heavy Metal gets an overall score of 8/10 and its sequel Heavy Metal 2000 will also receive a review from RealGamerNewz Film section when we get the chance, until then scroll down for a preview and even a link of where to find the full film viewable now for free.

Sony Blatantly Rips Off Microsoft Xbox Rewards With No Shame

SONY TO MS --- U MAD BRO

Sony was famous for being treated like trash last generation as their PlayStation 3 struggled to get any attention at all for the greater half of its existence. PS3 Released originally in 2006 with no games to speak of other than a few cult classics, if you can even call them that, like Warhawk and Resistance: Fall of Man which failed to move a respectable amount of units and confusing the entire game development world with the architecture of the cell processor causing many bad third party ports (or worse no port at all). It wasn’t until games like Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet that the Sony PS3 started gaining momentum as a brand, eventually leading to where it sits today as one of the fan favorites (depending on who you speak to). All this time Sony has been playing the role of the underdog, and it turns out it was an act all along.

As the media suspiciously turns their backs on the Microsoft Xbox brand and now treats them like trash insulting the Xbox ONE before DRM was even announced (just as the PS3 was being bashed before the specs were even announced) now all of a sudden Sony feels king again and has begun to take actions that show their renewed egomania. Today, those actions come in the form of a complete identity theft of the Microsoft Xbox Rewards program by the Sony PlayStation brand.

For the past 7+ years the term “Xbox Ambassador” has been being used as well as “Achievements” pre-dating the PS3 trophy system, and today Sony has shamelessly decided that it would like to have the same benefits for its gamers but not only reward people for recruiting others to spend money on PSN to earn “Achievements” but also promise them the hopes of one day becoming a PlayStation “Ambassador” and “Grand Ambassador” even beyond that.

PlayStation Rewards Rips off Xbox Rewards Shamelessly

Diablo 3’s Always-Online Requiring Copy Protection Won’t Be On PlayStation 4 / PS3

Blizzard Entertainment recently announced at the Sony PlayStation Meeting 2013 event that they will be bringing their epic Mac/PC franchise Diablo to the console industry. PlayStation 4 will see release of Diablo 3, as well as PlayStation 3. One feature of Diablo 3 that was revolutionary, and not all gamers felt in a good way, was the always-online requiring copy protection. No longer will you be required to be online to prove that you didn’t steal the game, if you purchase it for PlayStation 3 and/or PlayStation 4 that is.

Electronic Arts vs Zynga Lawsuit Has Been $ettled

Electronic Arts has reportedly settled their lawsuit with Zynga Games. As always in private matters like these, not much was discussed. An out-of-court arrangement was agreed upon by both parties. EA Games (also known as Electronic Arts) is responsible for such titles as The Sims series whereas Zynga Games was said to be encroaching upon its domain with similar life simulators.

“EA and Zynga have resolved their respective claims and have reached a settlement of their litigation in the Northern District of California.” – Official Statement [via GameSpot]
