When the BioDocs said they wanted to make franchises they didn't lie.

Now we get movie (ME) and anime (DA), plus all the books, comics and games.

Is it just me to find it somewhat weird after all the "DA is uber to all jRPGs" speeches they've been giving recently?

I honestly can't tell which makes less sense: the people who repeatedly produce video games as movies, or the people who repeatedly pay money to see them.

At least it's not a live-action film. That would probably be worse…

Yep, Dead Space: Downfall is one of the few video game based films that was actually pretty good.

I think this is better suited for DA..Unless the ME film has £100 million budget it will be a turd.

What is this? Strange announcement day? First Obsidian doing DS3 and now DA becoming anime..

Not a fan of anime in general, so I probably won't pay attention to this unless people around here tell me it's good.

Another moment with my "mental alarms" jumping into live …
