    That right you’ve read it correctly folks, Tetris is indeed being adapted into a live action scifi film described as “big” and “epic”. Those words came from Threshold Entertainment’s CEO Larry Kasanoff, who have come to an agreement with the Tetris Company for the movie adaption of the classic gaming title. Kasanoff himself is known for Mortals Kombat films.

    Triad Wars Trailer (Sleeping Dogs Sequel)

    Sleeping Dogs is to be followed up by on online open world RPG title Triad Wars. The game focuses more on building your own triad empire then following the story of a single member like the previous title did.

    I’m interested to see how authentic an experience the game delivers, if it manages to become more then GTAO:HK seeing as their are so few native Hong Kongers on the team (going by the trailer), or how much they base the game on actual documented triad activities. Sleeping Dogs was however, still very much a solid title, making this upcoming title one to keep your eyes on.
