Yet another eighties’ staple is set for a Hollywood remake, according to an article from the Hollywood Reporter. The site claims that The Fall Guy, an action-adventure series that ran for half a decade, will be made into a feature-length movie, with Dwayne Johnson apparently in talks to fill Lee Majors’ shoes as stuntman / bounty hunter Colt Stevens.
Terminator Salvation‘s McG is reportedly set to direct the remake — he’s previously rebooted a TV classic in the form of Charlie’s Angels. A draft script for The Fall Guy has been written by Zack Stentz and Ashley Edward, who have previously collaborated on the screenplays for Thor, X-Men; First Class, and the upcoming Top Gun sequel. While nothing is set in stone yet, the Hollywood…
According to the Financial Times, Britain’s other blockbuster sci-fi series may finally be remade, thanks to Microsoft’s growing interest in television. Blake’s 7, the Terry Nation-created show about a band of renegades fighting for survival, is believed to be part of Xbox Live’s push for original and exclusive TV content to rival both traditional media and services like Netflix. Persons familiar with the matter have claimed that after cable channel SyFy withdrew its funding, Steve Ballmer and former CBS Chief Nancy Tellem opened up Microsoft’s secret checkbook. Naturally, none of the parties are willing to confirm the deal, but that won’t stop us humming the classic series’ theme for the rest of the day.

Microsoft is funding a remake of the cult sci-fi TV series Blake’s 7, according to a report from the Financial Times. While the company is reportedly not committed to producing a full series, it would represent the latest push into original TV content for Microsoft, which is working with Steven Spielberg on a live-action adaptation of the Halo video games. Martin Campbell, director of James Bond films Goldeneye and Casino Royale, is said to be on board to direct.
Blake’s 7 was produced and broadcast by the BBC between 1978 and 1981. Created by Terry Nation, the man who dreamed up the concept for the Daleks, it “aimed to be a grittily realistic TV answer to Star Wars, only on Doctor Who‘s budget,” according to the BBC’s page for the…
As fans of D&D will attest, there are not many games as satisfying as Gygax’s original but darn it if it wasn’t fun to try new platforms when they came out. Tunnels & Trolls, created 37 years ago by Ken St. Andre, wasn’t so much a D&D knock-off but an alternative. St. Andre streamlined the D&D rules, reducing the complexity, and added a bit more humor. For folks unable to get the original D&D books, T&T was a real lifesaver.
There’s much more info about the game at TheSecretDM but for a $ 28 Kickstarter pledge you can grab a softcover copy of the new rules complete with updates. The group, led by St. Andre, has come a long way since the early days of T&T.
I think projects like this really show the power of Kickstarter (and crowdfunding in general). By allowing to “invest” in the things they love projects like this can eschew the typical vagaries of the market. A publisher, for example, could take on this project and sell it through normal distribution systems but by going online the team basically blows their project right into the hands of the most rabid fans. It is, in short, the best way to do things in a connected world.
Plus it’s Tunnels & Trolls. Who doesn’t love trolls?

Foursquare has been steadily adding to its mobile app since its check-in service took off. A major remake hasn’t been in the cards, however, until now. The company is teasing a major update this week that will reflect Foursquare’s shift from simply broadcasting your coffee shop invasions to recommending where to go next. From what little the company is willing to let slip in advance, the emphasis will be on spotting popular destinations on the map as well as more alluring location pages. There’s still several questions left open, including an exact release date as well as whether or not the update is coming to more than one platform on day one; we’ve only seen iOS shots so far. Still, it’s looking as though fans of Oink and Yelp will find something to like in Foursquare very shortly.

Google gave its official search app an iPad remake late last year, and now it’s smaller iPhone and iPod touch devices getting the new UI’s treatment. As of Google Search App 2.0, the smaller iOS devices see a big emphasis on full-screen navigation, with an automatic full-screen mode and a dedicated full-screen photo search making the most of the limited display real estate. You can now swipe back to search results like you could with the iPad, and it’s overall much faster in the app to hop between different search types as well as web apps like Calendar or Gmail. There’s still something in it for you if you’ve already been deep into the iPad port’s interface, as the tablet and the iPhone alike can now save photos directly to the iOS camera roll. You’ll need at least iOS 4.2 to live in Google’s non-Android mobile universe, but those that measure up can leap in through the source link.

Back at the Tokyo Game Show we heard news from Square Enix that Final Fantasy X was going to be a remake for the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3. . At the recent Taipei Game Show, Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto answered questions from fans about the Final Fantasy series, including confirming that the upcoming remake is fact a remaster. The primary difference is that the game will remain 100% intact, except for graphics enhancements. He said that, “The screen is much prettier than the original.” . Considering the gorgeous OLED screen of the Vita and the high graphics output of the PS3 I have no doubt it will look better than the original PS2 game. The game was originally released back in 2001 and marked the transition of the series from pre-rendered backdrops to fully three-dimensional areas. . It will be interesting to see what they do with the development of the game and if there will be crossover components between the Vita and the PS3. Fun fact, Final Fantasy X was the first in the series to feature voice acting and was the first to get a direct sequel. . I don’t have any more info but as soon as we see some footage, get some screen shots or any other details we’ll bring them to you here on Clevver Games. What do you guys think about this news? Glad it is just a …

Wedding Dress Remake ( www.youtube.com ) Where U At Remake ( www.youtube.com ) My first music video. To point out, it was never our intention to have our main dancer look like Tae Yang. If you want Tae Yang go watch the official video. Seriously. Why don’t you get someone with the same hair as him? Because we require someone that can dance and has the time to dedicate themselves to a project that they’re not being paid for. End of story. We had no intention to mimic the official MV entirely. We took the video and added our own style/flavor here and there. So please don’t question why something is different. It was quite hard for us to copy the dance exactly and everyone dances at a different level, so it was simplified. Especially considering we aren’t dancers. Is it lagging on HD? Try closing all other tabs/windows/programs, it helps. Otherwise…get a new computer Questions & Answers. Q. Why isn’t the guy at 4:27 Tae Yang? A. We pick whoever is the best at dancing and has time available to attend practices and filming. It is pointless to get a person that looks like Tae Yang that can’t dance nor has the time to film and practice. If you want a closer Tae Yang, watch our Prayer video then. Q. It’s “Only Look At Me” you stupid. A. That wasn’t a question. “Only look at me” is long..”look at me” is shorter ( Yes I know the meaning is quite different ) Q. Why doesn’t Tae Yang wake up? A. Ask Garrett. Well it fits in with the Korean theme of sad endings P Q. You guys …
Next week’s New Yorker features an in-depth look from John Seabrook at the history of YouTube and its plans to launch a hundred-channel “YouTV” of sorts in the next six months, complete with its own producers, publishers, and programmers. Seabrooks also profiles Google’s Robert Kyncl, “architect of the single largest cultural transformation” in YouTube’s history, who sees the web changing television as drastically as the upheaval led by the cable companies in the 80s broadcast industry. While the site does huge traffic and receives 48 new hours of video every minute, the average YouTube user watches only 15 minutes a day, far less than the four to five hours your average TV watcher logs. Kyncl told Seabrook, “We’re absolutely nothing…
