In wake of G4‘s upcoming name change to Esquire Network on April 22nd, Adam Sessler has dropped a bomb as to why he left about a year ago. Sessler apparently tweeted, stating he was fired from the television network without being told why.
Apparently the upcoming name change will be so that NBC can attract a different type of viewer. The new network would aim to be ”an upscale Bravo for men,” along with appealing to ”the modern man, [and] what being a man today is all about.”
The new network will not have gaming in focus.
“Realistically, guys who are into gaming are not necessarily watching television,” NBC programming executive Bonnie Hammer said. “If this was going to come under my portfolio, I’m a little brand crazy, so I said, let’s create a real brand, define a space, understand who we are programming for.”
The first five Pokemon movies will all be digitally remastered.
The movies are set to be aired on Kids Station. There will be one movie every Sunday at 12:00 midday in Japan starting from February 17th. The first movie to air on Feburary 17th is Theatrical Edition Pocket Monsters: Mewtwo’s Counterattack or just simply Pokemon: The First Movie. Followed by Pokemon: The Movie 2000 a.k.a Pocket Monsters the Movie: Revelation Lugia on February 24th.
A group called Mane6 has apparently been working on a Little Pony fighting game, My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic, based off of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV show. The fighting game was completely non-profit and has been in development for at least two years.
A legal representative from Hasbro sent the developers a cease and desist letter. The C&D letter asked the developers to cease developing the game, remove any material that might contain My Little Pony characters, names, locations or related elements from the sites Mane6 control (Their site, YouTube, twitch), and “cease any further use of [their] MY LITTLE PONY property”.

Fans of the scrapped game has offered their support, and has even started a petition. About 10k has signed the petition of 100k needed.
Zeschuk left the studio back in September to focus making beer. Or, more specifically a webseries dedicated to craft beer. It’s called The Beer Diaries.
“I just felt like my passion was waning,” Zeschuk said. “And I am very much a creature of passion and so I kind of looked at myself and go ‘OK, If I was to do something else what would I do? What would I really feel engaged in? What would I really enjoy?’”
Darabont’s show apparently had to change its name from L.A. Noir to Los Angels, otherwise Take-Two would sue. Take-Two is denying ever threatening him. They did, however, say they reached out to TNT. It wasn’t in order to threaten them, though, but to express concern since the name of the show is very similar to the game, L.A. Noire.
“It’s unfortunate that Mr. Darabont finds it necessary to gain publicity by making inaccurate statements,” a Take-Two representative said. “Take-Two never contacted Mr. Darabont nor threatened to sue any party.”
“The facts are that Take-Two reached out to [TNT parent company Turner Broadcasting System] to express concern over confusion between the properties and they responded that they had decided to change the title of the show independent of Take-Two’s concerns.”
Darabont claims that the company, Take-Two, threatened to sue him.
“Yes, it was going to be called L.A. Noir, based on the book by John Buntin. But the video game company with the video game called L.A. Noire (with an e!) threatened to sue the sh*t out of me, TNT, every company that actually ever worked in Hollywood,” Darabont said.
“And they have the billions of dollars to back it up, apparently. So we’re changing the title, and I do believe the title is going to be Lost Angels.”
The TV-show is apparently also set in 1947′s Los Angeles, which happens to be the same time-period as the game.
