We’re talking all Video Game related stories this week but start with a question: is “Animations” a word? Nintendo said they want more control over their movie properties, fan-film producer Adi Shankar (Judge Dredd: Superfiend, Power/Rangers) and Fred Seibert (Frederator) want to make a dark Castlevania animated mini-series, and Rovio cuts a third of their work force. This week we also play a game where Stephen reads out all the video game movies that have been made thus far and Rob and Pat try to guess what their Rotten Tomatoes rating is… I know this is cliche, but the answers may surprise you! The audience question this week is a great one about what animated series we would cancel in order to revive another.
