    Wololo

    This is one of my favorites sites for getting the latest news about hacking, downgrading, etc. It seems lately you are publishing other low-interest news. To be honest I am getting bored of all this stuff. Could you please go back to those years where you publised more interesting information. Even though I do not have time for playing, I would like to see more about the modding and hacking on the psvita (I really enjoy to modify software or hardware things from my vita when I have time). I hope you take this recommendation in the best way.

      Hey Friend, we blog about what’s out there. When there is information about hacking, we talk about it. Unfortunately, the hacking scene of the vita is not anywhere close to what the PSP scene was.

      I’d add that you are incorrectly seeing us blogging less about hacking. As a matter of fact, we’ve never blogged that much about hacking, it’s just that we write about other stuff too.
      I used to post about one article a week when I was the only writer here, and it was half of the time about my game “Wagic”. We now post once or twice a day, and a good half of these articles are about the hacking scene.

      Edit: that being said, if the only articles interesting to you are our hacking articles, you can check them here, under the “security” category: http://wololo.net/category/security/ (13 articles over the last 4 weeks, that’s more than 3 hacking related articles a week!)

    The game itself is already like a Movie. I don’t see why you would want to make a Movie out of this game. Then the game itself lacks gameplay. Don’t get me wrong, Last of Us is fun. But for the most part you just walk around and there’s not a lot of action going on it it.

    Which makes it like a Movie. So I don’t see the Point in making a Movie of this game.

    Imagine Metal Gear Solid being transformed into a movie. Damn… It’s 75% cutscenes anyway, but given the bad track record of game-to-movie adaptations, it would probably turn to disappointment; unless Hideo himself directed it.

    I actually liked the movie of price of persia. There were some stupid parts in it. But overall it wasn’t bad. I’m not saying it’s a great movie. But it still was good imho.

    • wololo says:

      I love your typo, “Price of Persia”. The plot: “An evil company attempts to buy an entire country through an evil scheme involving mutual funds. A young and idealistic American trader finds out about the plot and tries to fight back”

  6. hgoel0974 says:

    Let’s hope that the Assassin’s Creed movie coming out next year is better than what the track record for video game movies is.

  7. Thrawn says:

    Well maybe my standards are very very low…
    But I liked Doom the movie and also the prince of Persia movie.

    But you know what’s really BAD? The other way around!!!

    If it is a good or decent movie and then they make a game for it!!
    Go and look at AVGN’s reviews, then you know what’s BAD!!!

    (Terminator Movies -> Games ughghh)
    (Avatar -> Game ughghg)
    (Lord of the rings -> games ughhghg)
    (Rambo Movies -> Rambo game würghghh)
    (Alien Movies -> Alien games uahhgh)

    I could continue that list.

    On the subject of movies, there are a ton of really bad ones I agree. There are however a few that I do like but certainly less than 5. For me personally I think that this is a bad idea for this game. As stated, Last of Us is cinematic already and I only see a movie detracting from the games story and impact. I love Naughty Dog for their great storytelling in the Uncharted series and Last of US in particular so much that the Uncharted series was the big reason I bought a PS3 when I did. How does a bad movie make someone want to buy your console? So, if you are good at telling a story with a certain medium, why does it have to translate to other forms as well? In the past this has not been the case and I think that companies should stick to what they know and do best. People who are non-gamers see some of these bad movies and think that gaming is equally as bad for an engaging story even though that is not the case. They may not give gaming a chance after seeing one of these attempted cash ins and therefore it does not help the companys reputation the way I see it. After all, nobody is out there trying to make a great movie based on a crappy game to sell more games so why make a crappy movie and expect it to sell your great game?

    are they going to release this movie in live action or animation? because if it live action….i shudder to think…

    and if they do…maybe they should get that one actress from Beyond Two Soul to be her…if they can make her look young enough…

    what even more interesting would be if they tried to make the movie a sequel to the game…O_o

  10. Charles Fasano says:

    I enjoyed Doom, Tomb Raider and some of the Resident Evil movies. Super Mario was definitely interesting enough that I watched it several times over the years.

  11. Michelangelo says:

    …what about “Mortal kombat legacy”?? I mean the 10 minutes episodes.

  12. solidsnake says:

    The movie based on a game based on a movie based on a game based on all your based on belong to us.

  13. benemy says:

    If any game could become a good movie it would be heavy rain. I could easily see a handful of directors making it into a badass movie.

  14. exploit the kernel says:

    movie? so call to Leonardo Dicaprio and a youngest girl like Charlize Theron or Anne Hathaway

  15. The Kick says:

    Last Of Us doesn’t have the obstacles that caused these failures. The game is already highly cinematic, well-written, and believable.(Mostly. Dodging that gunner truck left me with furrowed brows.)

  16. jm8080 says:

    There is a movie named Postal based on a video with the same name which is surprisingly good, not that good but its ok

    • Thrawn says:

      POSTAL. IS. LEGENDARY.
      The games as well as the movie.
      The movie is based/leaned on Postal 2.

      Running with scissors!!! ;)

  17. Skars says:

    Worse than movies from games is games from movies. The “bad” rate is a lot higher.

  18. Ahmad says:

    A 2007 film “Hitman” was based on the hitman video game series; just saying.

  19. Aces says:

    Name one movie that actually faithfully reproduced its game counterpart, protip: you cant.
    Directors take too many liberties until the end result is a movie that has only the name in common with the game.

  20. italkgame says:

    That’s the problem right there. Movies should not faithfully REPRODUCE their video game counterparts. Movies are different than videogames in the way we digest them similar to how books are different from movies.
    The essential thing movie makers should keep in mind when they make a movie out of a well know game is that the movie is true to its own medium first and second to that of video games.

    An other thing to keep in mind is that historically speaking most video games sport mediocre, at best unoriginal stories; tales we have seen done on the bigscreen before.
    TLOU is not so far of from The Road – an excellent movie btw, but differs greatly from the book of the same name -

    • Aces says:

      Silent hill has a brilliant storyline, its just poorly executed in the games, if they had of stuck to the original story and thought about the execution a little more, it would of rocked. But no, they had to change nearly everything. The visuals of the change over to other world was nice though.

  21. icyheart says:

    I dont think is a good idea

  22. ivo says:

    what about a patch for remotejoylite …
    it uses usb
    so a patch so it uses netshell ?
    is this possible ?
    i use puttytel to connect

  23. DQEight says:

    LOL I own that Super Mario Movie. Best part was watching the koopa’s turn into raptors and t-rex

  24. BirthByRight says:

    i think tomb raider the movie and prince of persia did great :)

  25. TVT says:

    Difference –
    Protagnist in POP game is BadAss
    Protagnist in POP movie is ……… meh….

  26. ivo says:

    the motion picture game

  27. twiliteFox says:

    I hope Ellen Page plays Ellie

  28. Aces says:

    Been playin doom since 386 days.
    Sorry mate, that doom movie sucked. The 1st person bit ruined it even more.
    Even so, it takes more than a flop movie to deter me, hurry up and release doom4.
    Also, silent hill is my all time fave game, loved every outing including the not so popular ones (shattered memories, the room and homecoming) I thought downpour was pretty good, but id rather fight during otherworld parts than run. Hopefully another doom and silent hill comparable to the originals can come out and revive these great games.

  29. DS_Marine says:

    I’m interested, please tell me why the 1st person bit was not good to include in the movie.
    Also, movies are quite limited compared to games. So what would make a doom movie better? better plot? or maybe include more doom creatures?

  30. Aces says:

    It was a massive cliche that some idiot thought would be good and it really wasnt. Its akin to watching a mortal kombat movie and then they say “hey, lets do this fight in a side on 2d point of view”.
    I really wanted doom to be a good movie, but pinky in the wheelchair, typical facial expressions from the rock, a guy nicked goat turned into a goat looking thing and lastly the stupid injecting doomguy with a virus but because he has good heart he because a super dude. The movie just wreaked of one bad idea after another. Anybody who says it was good or even not bad, is someone I will never want to go to for advice on a good movie to watch.

  31. Aces says:

    ^He becomes superdude^
    Not he because
