    Homeworld sounds similarly to a anime called Planet of the Beast King. At least the parts off the actual inhabited planet.

    I get that you didn't put Mass Effect because it was on the Film top ten, but with its spectacular and deep lore, it woud make hell of a tv series. You could even made different gen series as Star Trek did!

    tom clancy never wrote the splinter cell games Ubisoft just slapped his name on the game…Clancy was only a consultant.

  5. Alex Rubin

    mirrors edge is a terrible pick. parkour is cool, but watching 20 to 40 minutes of it is huge overkill. psychonauts as a kids show was a decent idea though.

    Too bad ABC traded a possible "Fables" [Wolf Among Us] TV show for the dull "Once Upon A Time" series. I guess Disney wanted to keep its fairytale characters out of the much more interesting and darker themes of "Fables." And also since "Grimm" is in that same pipeline as "Fables," there probably won't ever be a TV show for this very interesting comic.
