Unofficial Pokemon Mincecraft Mod Shut Down At Pokemon Company’s Request

Pixelmon, the Pokemon meets Minecraft mod, has come to an end. Its creator MrMasochism announced on the Pixelmon forums today that the mod has been taken down at the request of The Pokemon Company.
“With much sadness, but keeping all our fond memories, we must announce that Pixelmon is ending its development,” MrMasochism's forum post reads. “We have had a great time making this mod and creating such a wonderful community but after a request from the Pokémon company we will be shutting our doors. I'm sorry for the disappointment this will cause but let's remember all the great times we had playing Pixelmon, discussing Pokémon, making awesome things inside this mod and everything else that we've done.
“All good things come to an end eventually and now is our time. However there are always more things to do, to be a part of and to enjoy. Keep going out there to find fun projects to be a part of and other great things to invest your time and enthusiasm into.”

The Fifth Element Director Luc Besson On Why He Prefers Valerian

With the way Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has been advertised–”the visionary director of The Fifth Element” writ large in the film’s trailers–Luc Besson fans will be forgiven for assuming the two movies will be similar. The French filmmaker tackled sci-fi of a sort with 2014’s Lucy, but Valerian is his first full-on spacefaring adventure since The Fifth Element in 1997. But not only does Besson insist they’re unrelated–he’s also not shy about which he prefers.
“I feel as a director much more agile, you know, in the shots, and I’m more trained 20 years later,” he told GameSpot. “So I prefer the directing of Valerian.”
The Fifth Element–which has earned cult status over the last two decades following a lukewarm reception from critics at the time–was screened this weekend at Los Angeles’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Cinespia, the company behind the frequent always-sold-out cemetery screenings, partnered with Sony to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary and its release..

Watch The Opening For The Big Hero 6 Animated Series

Disney's annual expo, D23, revealed the opening title sequence for the upcoming fall animated series, Big Hero 6. The show is set to air on Disney XD, and you can check out the exciting intro to the upcoming series above.
Big Hero 6 follows the characters from Disney's 2014 animated film of the same name. Immediately following the events of the movie, genius engineer Hiro continues his studies at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, but come nightfall, he and other high-tech heroes battle evil forces across the city. Much like many superheroes, Hiro will have to balance saving the city from bad guys and the struggles of teenage life.
There will be a few returning voices to the series. Ryan Potter returns to voice Hiro, and he is once again joined by Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago, and Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon. While the first season of Big Hero 6 hasn't premiered yet, Disney XD has already announced a renewal for a second season.

Street Fighter EX Dev Brings Skullomania Back For Its New Fighting Game

Skullomania, the greatest fighting game character ever created, will make his triumphant return in Arika's new unnamed fighting game. The character–who is a Japanese salary man turned vigilante in a skeleton outfit–made his debut in the Street Fighter EX series, which was developed by Arika in partnership with Capcom. He hadn't been featured in any games since the EX series … except Fighter Maker, but we don't talk about Fighter Maker.
During EVO 2017 Arika showed off new footage of its currently in-development fighting game–the one that started off as an April Fool's joke. It includes a number of characters from the Street Fighter EX series, which the studio retained the rights to after its partnership with Capcom ended. There's that mustache guy, spiky hair crotch sword man, and that lady that does the kicks. But none of them matter.
Skullomania. Is. All. That. Matters.And his reveal was absolutely perfect. If you watch the video again–which you can do ..

Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Lead Actress Talks Series Canon, Telling A Unique Story

As a fast-paced and hectic rundown of all the epic battles in the Star Wars universe, the Battlefront series has always been about reliving the best moments. But for the sequel, Star Wars: Battlefront II plans to shed light on events unseen in the films. After the Level Up games panel at D23, GameSpot had the chance to talk with Janina Gavankar, the actress behind the lead character Iden Versio, where we learned more about Battlefront II’s ambitious single-player narrative, and how her own creative input helped the story.
“It’s everything you could imagine, and more. I thought I was gonna show up to work and people were gonna just say ‘stand here, do this, follow our rules’, which by the way I have been through on lesser projects in other mediums. But this has been so unexpectedly collaborative,” said Janina Gavankar. “I had access to the script and access to the writers. I would ask a million questions, and sat there and tried to poke holes through every single angle of this thing, an..

New Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Gameplay Video Reveals Jedah From Darkstalkers

Capcom has announced Jedah Dohma will be part of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite's roster of playable characters. This is the first time Jedah, who is a character from the Darkstalkers series, has been included in a Marvel Vs. Capcom title.
The character was revealed at the EVO 2017 fighting game tournament, where Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite associate producer Peter Rosas picked Jedah during an exhibition match. He isn't the first Darkstalkers character to be in a MvC game, however, as Morrigan, Felicia, Hsien-Ko, and a few others have previously made the cut.
Jedah seems to have quite a bit of range on his attacks thanks to his scythe, and also uses his wings to give himself increased mobility. He can be seen in the gameplay video above (skip to 5:45) using his flight ability to chase down his opponent and apply pressure.
Earlier in the exhibition match Gamora, a popular character from Guardians of the Galaxy, was also shown shown for the first time. Like her comic book and movi..
