Game Rights

When a movie makes it big, especially an action movie, companies line up for the rights to make t-shirts, hats, cups and even video games based on it. The problem is that lots of games based on movies - and movies based on games - are pretty sad. But there are some big deals going on that could change that.

The Mummy was one of the best action flicks last year. Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell saved the day in heroic fashion and made the movie a huge success. Right now you can play the adventure of The Mummy on your Game Boy Color or on your Sony Playstation. You can bet a months allowance that The Mummy Returns is going to inspire a wicked game or two.


Survivor is also making the conversion from TV to video game. Infogrames signed a deal to make Survivor II games for the US and Canada. You'll be able to outwit, outplay and outlast your friends in the comfort of your own living room by the fall of 2001. I hope they include the characters from the first Survivor, or at least Rudy - he rocked.


The biggest news is The Matrix. It's coming to your home system in a big way. Big Bill (Gates, that is) has signed an exclusive deal with Interplay, the company that's making The Matrix games, to give the Xbox first dibs. You'll be able to catch the first of The Matrix games in the fall of 2002, a couple months after the second Matrix movie The Matrix Reloads has hit the theaters.


The other big news is Tomb Raider the movie, due out on June 15th 2001. It's the biggest game-to-movie conversion ever made and it'll be a big sign of whether they can be good. The buzz so far is that it looks like it'll pull it off. Angelina is totally buffed and ready to rumble and the effects look top-notch. All it needs is for you to go watch it.


This sounds like good news but what do you think? Are the games going to be a load of junk or are they gonna rock? Hit to tell us what you think.

    U should build a water park. U can build it big or small. I built a huge waterslide with a whirlpool at the back. It takes your time and it will be fun if u play on multiplayer.
