Gaming News: "Taking Risks III"
Posted: Wednesday February 11th, 2009 by

As soon as I wrote the Microsoft comic yesterday, I knew this one was coming. I make no excuse for beating the joke horse to death with this particular running joke. But, if you're going to do a series about "original"/"innovative" IP (intellectual property) how can you not take a jab at the return of Jason Voorhees?

We've been talking about the new Friday the 13th movie (hitting theatres this friday) in the Movie Review forum. Initially I was excited about it. I love horror movies. Jason was always my favorite slasher. So revisiting the plot of the first few movies didn't upset me in the least. I mean, I didn't think it was 100% successful, but I did enjoy the Rob Zombie Halloween revisit. So why not approach this revisit with enthusiasm? Why has my excitement started to waver?

Well the answer is simple...
They drafted one of the "actors" from the oh so horrible TV series Supernatural to serve as the male lead and somehow I doubt they're going to let Jason bash in his pretty little head with someone else's torso.

I haven't completely given up hope that he'll die horribly Paris-Hilton-in-House-of-Wax style.
