  1. I think at this point a bunch of Blizzard employees could be revealed to be a bunch of cannibalistic serial killers, and people would still buy their games. In other news, the new Life is Strange game comes out tomorrow!!!
  2. https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/streaming/hbos-the-last-of-us-is-one-of-the-most-expensive-shows-ever-made/news-story/7714e564993ac353bbc10f70baa43b4d Move over, Game of Thrones: HBO has a new, mind-blowing, budget-dominating prestige TV show. In a recent Alberta CTV news story discussing the ongoing filming of popular video game turned TV series, The Last of Us, people have noticed one key detail – the massive budget for the series. The video game adaptation will apparently cost more than $13 million per episode, with a total budget in the hundreds of millions, IATSE (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees) Alberta president Damian Petti said. “This project well exceeds the eight figure per episode mark,” Mr Petti said. “So there is a multiplier effect on our economy in terms of its impact. There are hundreds of related businesses benefiting from the plethora of work.” This gargantuan budget will place the series high up on the list of most expensive TV shows ever made, which HBO seems to dominate, having shows like Game of Thrones and The Pacific on the list. Also worth mentioning, Merle Dandridge and Jeffrey Pierce, who played Marlene and Tommy respectively in the original video game, will both be appearing in the TV show, with Merle reprising her role and Jeffrey playing a different character. Both Neil Druckmann and Gustavo Santaolalla, writer and composer of the original video game respectively, are also working on the show.
