PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
RELEASE DATE: October 9, 2012

Sequels to video games tend to take a little longer to make than sequels to movies, but they’re also much more accepted than movie sequels. Still, gamers yearn for those original titles—the next big games that could become great enough to warrant sequels—and one of the more anticipated original titles was Dishonored, the new game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks.

Now the game has arrived. So how does it stand up to all of the buzz and excitement? Should you run out and buy a copy right away?

NYCC 2012: ‘Carrie’ Remake: Chloe Moretz Urges Everyone To ‘Call Carrie’

Carrie, the Stephen King novel which was originally made into a film directed by Brian De Palma in 1976, is being remade for a Spring 2013 release next year and had a panel on Saturday at the IGN Theater at New York Comic-Con.

The original stands as a cult classic and is the ultimate revenge of the nerd story in which a red-headed shy, wallflower teenager, imbued with telekinesis, throws her wrath of vengeance and revenge on the residents of small town in which she lives who have always shunned and mocked her.

The new version finds Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In) in the role of Carrie White, originally played by Sissy Spacek. Moretz, along with celebrated actress Julianne Moore stepping into the role perfected by Piper Laurie in the first film as Carrie’s chillingly disturbed mother, director Kimberly Peirce, and producer Kevin Misher made up the panel at NYCC at the Jacob Javits Center in midtown Manhattan.

The first of many marketing photos are actually starting off in a pretty big way, with Moretz wearing a prom dress covered in blood, which was the pinnacle scene in the original movie.
