Angelina Jolie

We had one of the many LDG Special Correspondents join us this week, Ivanhoe, fresh off his trip to the PAX East 2012. He wowed us with tales of games and Booth Babes, as well as some upcoming games. With many things happening to LDG, we got a chance to engage the fans, talk about some video games made into movies, as well as our shared love for Angelina Jolie. There were a bunch of good stories this week, and we ran through them a little quicker to try to fit under our 1 hour limit we have given ourselves. As usual, Michel had a great email to share with us that gave us a good reason to get a discussion going, and you can easily see from the picture to the right who won. Chaelura asked us about some video game quotes, and Galvion asked about our favorite weapon. As usual, we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoy attempting to entertain you.

Audience Feedback [48:50]

Hey LGD crew,

Just wanted to know your two cents about films based on video games. Got any favorite?

I gotta say I unironically love Street Fighter, I know this is a really bad and cheesy movie, but I still enjoy watching it nonetheless.
Even though the story doesn’t make any sense and the acting is atrociously bad, I can’t explain why I love this film so much.

Anyway, here’s another tough question for you guys:
Which video game would like to turn into a movie and which actor would you like to choose to play as the main character?

Cheers!

-Michel

  4. Michel says:

    I’m sure you all know this but I guess you forgot about it, Ubisoft did a short film about Assassin’s Creed 2 called “Lineage”, using real actors (they all served as model for the characters in the game), and if haven’t watched it already, you can find the film on youtube for free on the Assassin’s Creed official YT channel:

  6. gameshoes says:

    This isn’t from a game, but I would like to have the tuxedo [or similar] from the movie “The Tuxedo”. Kicking ass while being well dressed? That’s a winner.
