    In what seems to be a trend of older movies getting video game tie-ins, movie studio Lionsgate will be partnering with indie game studio Big Star Games in order to create a video game adaptation of Reservoir Dogs, titled Resevoir Dogs: Bloody Days. The game is a celebration of the film's 25th anniversary, and will be releasing this Spring. It's set to release initially for Steam/PC, and will get an Xbox One version later down the line. Big Star Games states that they will be making sure that the game stays loyal to the movie, and will include the movie's star characters to play as. According to the press release, Bloody Days is set to be an "action-shooter" style of game.

    Finally get to have an idea what the heist was, because the movie didn't feature that, just gave the impression that it was a botch. Looks alright, especially the bloodshed, makes me interested in how the ear-slicing scene will be handled.

    It was a diamond heist. I'm personally on the fence about this game. While I liked the movie, I'm not too sure a game adaption would turn out too well. Wish I had a full trailer or screenshot.

    I half expected it to be another Telltale Games "choose your adventure" type game but I think this will probably end up being like the Godfather or Scarface game.

    Also, "time back" feature? It's basically Prince of Persia Sands of Time isn't it?

    Is this a joke? Your current gen consoles were the first generation to be released weaker than a mid-high tier PC. Couple that with steam having million's of people playing games through their services each day, while Company's like Square Enix are even releasing random ports of a lot of their old/new titles because its easy and profitable. You can't say PC gaming doesn't matter anymore.

    That's not what he meant. When it comes to "exclusivity" it always means the console version. It has always been that way. Quantum Break is an XBox One exclusive, as well as Dead Rising 3. Meaning, I can't play those games on any other console. PC doesn't count.

    You're arguing semantics, if it plays games and has games officially released to it and is acknowledge as a gaming platform then it should be treated as such. It's an outdated mindset to think that when talking about games PC shouldn't considered, if you do think like that you'd have to either be living under a rock or dense beyond help. I mean it's at the point where "console" architecture is almost indistinguishable from a PC.

    Whether you agree with all that or not, he never once specified "console" exclusivity so I took by definition.

    PC is not a console.

    Let me put it like this. Ask anyone that has a $1500+ PC, now ask them would they of bought that PC if it was ONLY for games. It doesnt have all the functions of a computer just games, would they still spend $$$ on it? i guarantee you the mass majority would be NO if they answer truthfully.

    PC's are personal computers that so happen to play games, AAA PC exclusives are almost non existent since the 90's, the gaming industry revolves around consoles like it or not. You see all these new MMO's that has historically been a PC only thing, now how many MMO's are being designed with consoles in mind now? all of them.

    PC is the straggler that gets the left overs with fancy bells and whistles, when the ports actually work that is, which i personally couldnt care about "OH WOW that blade of grass has more detail WOW! who cares."

    To be fair, I just saw the movie for the first time about a month ago. Still probably wont pick up the game though.
