Can Watch Dogs hack it as a movie? Ubisoft and Zombieland writers think so
Rayman Legends Review: Old School Bliss

Even though it’s still a few weeks from release, Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures and New Regency are collaborating with Ubisoft to produce a film adaptation of Watch Dogs. The film version of Aiden Pearce’s quest for vengeance will be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the screenwriting duo behind Zombieland.
Watch Dogs isn’t the only Ubisoft property currently stationed in New Regency’s production office. The company is also adapting Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and Assassin’s Creed. Tom Hardy is set to star as Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell adaptation while Assassin’s Creed will feature Michael Fassbender (though its unknown if he will play Altair, Ezio, Desmond, or someone else entirely).
It’s currently unknown who will play superhacker Aiden Pearce, but I could see Jim Caviezel doing a good job with the role. Oh, wait…
Hello, my faithful Scoopers! I’m going to be at the East Coast Game Conference down in North Carolina this week, so I’m not sure how much Internet access I’m going to have. There may be a small hiatus on the Scoop! But fear not – I will let you know all about ECGC as soon as I get back.
In the meantime, I want to remind you that you should definitely pick up the Video Game Bundle 3.0 at Story Bundle, as well as Game Music Bundle 7 at the Game Music Bundle page. All of what you see can be yours for just $22. Scoop ‘em up!
Other than that, there are a few new deals happening over at Steam. They’ve got some brand new Weeklong Deals, including Thomas Was Alone for $4.99, Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians for $2.49, and Arena Wars 2 for 99 cents. The Daily Deal is Dawn of Fantasy: Kingdom Wars for $5.09.
Just a few t-shirts today…
For those of you who are local, I really hope you can make it to the South Jersey Geek Fest tomorrow! Anthony Amato and I will have a table to show off RESISTOR_ and Kobolds. Stop by, play our games, high five us!
There’s not too much going on in the way of deals that I haven’t already mentioned at some point this week. You’ve got a few new sales over at the Humble Store, like Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure for $17.99, Toki Tori 2+ for $7.49, and Professional Farmer 2014 for $6.66. And there’s a new Daily Deal over at Steam – it’s Next Car Game for $20.09.
That’s all for deals! But of course, I’ve still got some t-shirts for you…
PAX East 2014 was a different type of show than in years past. Some big publishers, such as Nintendo, skipped the show completely, while others, like Microsoft, only brought a handful of unreleased games. This shift in the show floor allowed the indies to take center stage, and the majority of our PAX East 2014 PAXpocalypse List reflects this year’s status quo. But that’s not to say the big publishers skipped PAX East 2014 altogether. Towering displays from 2K, Bethesda, and Ubisoft dominated the exhibition hall map, and we definitely had some fun with a few games that will demand your time during this Summer and Fall.
So if we were cut off from the outside and trapped within the walls of PAX East 2014, which games would we return to over and over again? Well… (more…)
The big news for today is that there’s a brand new Game Music Bundle! This new bundle, number seven, has 17 albums in total for just $10! You can also get five albums for no more than $1. There’s some really great music here, including lots by Austin Wintory, so I highly recommend picking the bundle up.
Speaking of new bundles, there’s also a brand new Humble Weekly Bundle, this one called Oh Man You Should Totally Check That Game Out, presented by Devolver. Pay what you want for The Real Texas, Cryptic Sea EP, and Dungeon Hearts. Pay $6 or more to unlock Foul Play, Legend of Dungeon (a fantastic game!), and Krunch. Pay $10 to unlock Tower of Guns.
Finally, there are some new deals at Steam as well. The Weekend Deal is 80% off Frozen Synapse, marking it down to $4.99. It’s also free to play all weekend, so if you want to take it for a test drive first, now’s your chance! The Daily Deal is 50% off Beat Hazard, marking that down to $4.99 as well.
And now, time for t-shirts!
Things keep coming fast and furious for us over here at Warp Zoned. Anthony Amato and I are trying to get our games ready for another event this weekend, the South Jersey Geek Fest. If you want to try out Resistor and Kobolds, now’s your chance!
There are some good gaming deals happening today that you’ll want to know about. First up, there’s a new bundle over at Indie Royale, The Debut 12 Bundle. Pay whatever the current minimum is for Yrminsul, Selknam Defense, Luna’s Wandering Stars, Rot Gut, Storm over the Pacific, You Are Not a Banana: Chapter 1, Pester, and Gearcrack Arena.

There are a couple of really great shirts today:
PAX East has come and gone, and I’m currently in a nice post-PAX coma! Right now I’m sitting at home, listening to the rain on the windows, totally exhausted and happy. I’ve been looking at pictures from PAX all day, so it’s almost like it’s not over yet!
But I haven’t forgotten about you, dear readers! I’ve got some deals for you, as always. There’s plenty happening over at the Humble site, for starters. There’s the Humble Mobile Bundle 5 – pay what you want for Bag It!, R-Type II, and Aralon: Sword and Shadow. Pay more than the average to unlock The Cave, The Room Two, Carcassonne, and some unannounced games. After that is the Pew Die Pie Saves the Children Humble Weekly sale. Pay what you want for Surgeon Simulator 2013, Guacamelee! Gold Edition, and QWOP for Android. Pay $6 or more for SpeedRunners and Garry’s Mod. Pay $10 for Probably Archery, and top out at $15 to get State of Decay.
There aren’t many t-shirts, which is a good thing if you’ve just gotten back from PAX, because you’re probably swimming in them already…
Those sneaky dudes at Gearbox have done it again. After saying they weren’t working on Borderlands 3, they go ahead and announce a Pre-Sequel, which is set to come out later this year. I went from disappointed to excited in no time flat!
Anyway, let’s talk about games you can get right now! Indie Royale has a new bundle up, the Atomic Bundle. Pay what you want for Humans Must Answer, Cube & Star: An Arbitrary Love, The Chaos Engine, Super Killer Hornet: Resurrection, Fields of War, and Livalink. And the Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9 has just added a ton of unlockable games – in addition to Kingdom Rush and Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition, you can now also get The Shivah, Savant – Ascent, and Syder Arcade.
There are some deals over at Steam, too. Still in the Midweek Madness spotlight is Spelunky, which is on sale for $5.09. And the new Daily Deal for today is Alice: Madness Returns, which is 75% off at $4.99.
And now: t-shirts!
