    Attachment 1674The BBC announced that Matt Smith is leaving the role of Doctor Who with the Christmas Special later this year.

    Matt Smith says: "Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show. I'm incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience. Many of them have become good friends and I'm incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.

    Having Steven Moffat as show runner write such varied, funny, mind bending and brilliant scripts has been one of the greatest and most rewarding challenges of my career. It's been a privilege and a treat to work with Steven, he's a good friend and will continue to shape a brilliant world for the Doctor.

    The fans of Doctor Who around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I've never seen before, your dedication is truly remarkable. Thank you so very much for supporting my incarnation of the Time Lord, number Eleven, who I might add is not done yet, I'm back for the 50th anniversary and the Christmas special!

    It's been an honour to play this part, to follow the legacy of brilliant actors, and helm the TARDIS for a spell with 'the ginger, the nose and the impossible one'. But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go and Trenzalore calls. Thank you guys. Matt."

    Steven Moffat adds: "Every day, on every episode, in every set of rushes, Matt Smith surprised me: the way he'd turn a line, or spin on his heels, or make something funny, or out of nowhere make me cry, I just never knew what was coming next. The Doctor can be clown and hero, often at the same time, and Matt rose to both challenges magnificently. And even better than that, given the pressures of this extraordinary show, he is one of the nicest and hardest-working people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Whatever we threw at him - sometimes literally - his behaviour was always worthy of the Doctor.

    But great actors always know when it's time for the curtain call, so this Christmas prepare for your hearts to break, as we say goodbye to number Eleven. Thank you Matt - bow ties were never cooler.

    Of course, this isn't the end of the story, because now the search begins. Somewhere out there right now - all unknowing, just going about their business - is someone who's about to become the Doctor. A life is going to change, and Doctor Who will be born all over again! After 50 years, that's still so exciting!"

    The 11th doctor has only two more shows left to do. The 50th anniversary special on November 23, 2013 and the Christmas special.

    Some would like to see David Tennant return and others have pointed out that John Hurt is set to appear in more episodes. Could he be the new Doctor?

    Who do you think should be the new Doctor?

    NCSoft in the past said it had a small team working on a possible console version but now has possibly confirmed that Guild Wars 2 is coming to a console. In an investor call, the publisher said when asked about a console version, that "When it comes to Guild Wars 2 as we have announced already, we are in the preparation stage."

    Although later a ArenaNet representative clarified that "Currently ArenaNet is focused on making GW2 the best PC MMO ever released."

    So it is not clear if it is coming to the consoles or not. Was the clarification meant to throw off competitors? Or are they really not planning to bring a console version.

    In 2007 NCSoft, inked a deal with Sony to provide exclusive games to the PSP and Playstation 3. If that deal is in effect, any console version would only be available on Sony's platforms.

    Attachment 1672Hasbro announced they have partnered with DeNA to release Dungeons and Dragons: Arena of War for the iPhone, Ipad, and Android devices. Tiburcio De la Carcova, Head of DeNA’s Santiago, Chile game studio, said, "The 'D&D' 5th edition is coming soon and now is the best moment to be the part of the new era of 'Dungeons and Dragons.' There was also no 'D&D' game truly designed for mobile devices and the community was clearly waiting for that."

    The game will feature fantasy classes such as Rogues and Wizards, races such as Dwarves and Elves, and the quest to slay enemies. "The majority of the development team is comprised of 'D&D' fans, so it was really important for us to create an authentic 'D&D' gameplay experience. We are working very closely with the Wizards of the Coast team to be faithful to 'D&D'," said De la Carcova.

    De la Carcova said that Arena can be played casually but there is a deepness to the game to keep the D&D fan interested. "You can play it hack and slash style, but if you really want to be on top of the leaderboards you will invest a lot of time developing your character and your party."

    Mortenson was asked by one of the producers in 2008 if he would be interested in appearing in the Hobbit. He didn't want to take the part out of respect to the original author and told the producer that he knew that Aragorn wasn't in the Hobbit. And that there was a 60 year difference between the books.

    He admitted that he's yet to see the first Hobbit film but said he is intrigued by what Jackson can do with the source material.

    "I'm interested in seeing that world again, and seeing what Peter Jackson's done, how he's made use of the improvements in special effects and cameras and the different way of shooting, which will probably enhance the visual aspect of the experience, the sound also,"

    Mortensen explained. "And I'm interested in seeing how he's managed to make three movies out of a relatively slim volume … Jackson is a clever person – I'm sure he'll have done something really interesting with it."

    The Desolation of Smaug is due to come out December 2013 and the final film There and Back Again will follow in December 2014.

    Looking forward to these films? Think Mortensen was right to turn down the role?

    Arnold Schwareneggar was asked if Terminator 5 was still being planned and he said they are writing it now. He says, "There are three projects being written that involve me. One is Terminator 5, the other is a Conan movie that Universal is doing and there’s the sequel to Twins, which is called Triplets."

    Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogidis are writing the script for Terminator 5. It is to be produced by Skydance Productions and Annapuma Pictures.

    The Legend of Conan is said to be a direct sequel to 1984's Conan the Barbarian. It does not plan to include either Conan the Destroyer or the 2011 Conan the Barbarian in its timeline.

    How do you feel about these three movies?

    Game Insight announced a new version of Rule the Kingdom on May 29. The game is a unque hybrid of roleplaying and stategy. It combines light role-playing with adventure with deep city-building strategy. It is developed by InnoWate who created the strategy game, 2020: MyCountry.

    Players play as fledging warrior-monarchs who are called upon to both tend to the citizens and acquire land and treasure. Players can build their tiny village into a booming empire with a profitable economy and a strong military structure that lets them commission warriors, wizards, and artillery to bring into battle. When they aren't tending to their citizens, players can actually leave their nation to explore dozens of unique locales in search of piles of gold coin, rare weapons and armor that can be upgraded using enchanted gems, and even learn powerful magic spells

    Rule the Kingdom is now availble on iPhone, iPad, Android and Facebook.

    "We are extremely excited to see Rule the Kingdom and Airport City launch on Facebook.com. Game Insight develops awesome games, and we have enjoyed a very close working relationship with them," said Julien Codorniou, Head of Gaming Partnerships at Facebook Europe. "Given the high quality of Facebook platform integration both on web and on mobile, we are confident that these games will delight gamers all over the world, on whichever device they may play them."

    Attachment 1667News that Warner Brothers has aquired the rights to make a moved based on Dungeons and Dragons may not be true after all. Hasbro, owners of Wizards of Coast, has filed a lawsuit to stop the planned move claiming that it has not authorized the movie. Instead, Wizards has an agreement with Universal pictures.Earlier this month, the news said that Warner Brothers already has a script from David Leslie Johnson. Johnson wrote Wrath of the Titans and Red Riding Hood. The script, Chainmill, is based on a game designed by Gary Gygax before he launched Dungeons and Dragons.

    The film was to be produced by Roy Lee and Courtney Solomon, who directed the 2000 Dungeons and Dragons film starring Jeremy Irons. With Alan Zeman being the executive Producer of the project. Solomon's studio claims it has the right to make a sequel or prequel to the 2000 film.

    The Dungeons and Dragons brand that has generated over $1 billion dollars since it launched in 1974 and the news claimed that Warner Brothers is treating this property as a major priority. They hoped to catch the interest of those who are enjoying the HBO series Game of Thrones and those who enjoy the Peter Jackson Hobbit adaptations.

    But Hasbro has filed a lawsuit against Solomon's Sweatpea Entertainment alleging that it has no right to make a film that exploits the Dungeon and Dragon brand. It seeks a declaration that it owns the rights to the property and wants an injunction to stop the planned Warner Brothers film. Warner Brothers is not a defendant in the lawsuit.

    Further the complaint states that the sequel rights would revert on a rolling basis on the earlier of five years from the U.S. release or seven years from the final director's cut.

    Sweatpea meanwhile has produced two TV films for the SyFy Channel: Wrath of the Dragon God in 2005 and The Book of Vile Darkness in 2012. They claim that this reset the sequel rights five year reversion clock but the Hasbro lawsuit claims that since it was not released as a theaterical release it did not.

    We have made three pictures so far, and we’re going to make more -
    including the tentpole project that is currently in advanced stages of development with Warner Bros," says Solomon in a statement.
