A new episode of SNS Sticks & Flicks with Ashley Richardson is here for you on the SNS Radio Network. On the gaming front this week, Microsoft officially buys Mojang and Notch explains how he’s making a sensible move, WWE 2K15 gets delayed for next gen… but could a PC version be on the way?, New details on the Metal Gear Solid & Final Fantasy franchises are unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show, an industry veteran is leaving Konami and 16 years, a rumored Super Smash Bros. WiiU release date (along with some wrongly banned Peach players), DLC detailed for Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Alien: Isolation, Joan Rivers promoting the new iPhone 6 from the grave and much more.
The movie & entertainment news to open part 2 includes Jack Huston getting the role of Ben Hur, the Assassin’s Creed movie is delayed, David Ayer may be heading for the Suicide Squad, Matt Damon & Paul Greengrass may be returning for a fifth Bourne movie, news regarding the Paranormal Activity and I Know What You Did Last Summer franchises and Grumpy Cat is apparently getting a TV movie…yes, really. Ash then reviews the Young Vic’s production of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ screened by NT Live, the play Salome, along with the accompanying documentary Wilde Salome and a live Q&A featuring Al Pacino, Stephen Fry & Jessica Chastain, and a few movies, with one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final performances in ‘A Most Wanted Man’, the filthy, rich and downright despicable men of ‘The Riot Club’ and Liam Neeson being a grizzled cop in ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’
The final part has Ashley giving the low down of all the games which will be at the EGX convention which he is attending next weekend. Some of the big titles include Little Big Planet 3, Assassin’s Creed Unity & Rogue, Alien Isolation, Evolve, WWE 2K15, Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Super Smash Bros., but there’s also a huge amount of small PC & indie titles there too, some of which look very interesting, as well as developer sessions with major reveals set to take place on some of them.
