Tigon's Ian Stevens: For Hollywood, 'making video games has been the same thing as making action figures'

Running Tigon Studios is a bit of a strange job to have. Ian Stevens, the man in charge, is responsible for not just organizing development talent to make games like this year's Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, but also working with Hollywood. And, unsurprisingly, he says it's a bit...

Wheelman movie incoming: Vin to star, John Singleton to direct

A man like John Singleton needs no introduction, especially around the leaky decks of the Joystiq oil tanker. Every week, we usually enjoy a movie to break up the monotony of teh blawging. Almost always, that movie is Baby Boy. Now, the directorial genius of Mr. Singleton is being applied to a...

Riddick: Dark Athena debuts at #2 in UK charts, only new game to make top 40

Who would have thought The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena would be so successful?

Joystiq interview: Ian Stevens, Tigon Studios' head of game production

Ian Stevens has a lot on his plate.

Metareview - Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

It's a strange concept, but Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena might be 2009's answer (in value) to The Orange Box. Riddick's return essentially includes three games for the price of one, with Butcher Bay, Assault on Dark Athena and new multiplayer features rounding out the retail...

Thanks to Vin Diesel, Dark Athena has multiplayer

Vin Diesel reveals his dream game, Barca BC

Like all red-blooded Americans, we love Vin Diesel games like Wheelman, which stars the big guy as a lead character who's half-car, half-man, but all hero. (We think that's what it's about, we haven't been following that closely.) We know that Vin wants bigger things though, and he's finally...

Riddick's Assault on Dark Athena demo up on XBLM, full of 'ulaks'

Gravelly-voiced space crook news now, with a demo version of The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena arriving on the Xbox Live Marketplace. In addition to piloting Vin Diesel through the presumably dark corridors of the titular Athena, you'll be able to pilot a "drone" through one of the...

Pontiac G8 still in Wheelman despite brand's dire outlook

MTV Multiplayer has pointed out that, although GM's Pontiac line is slowly bleeding out as a casualty of the US economic downturn, Midway's Ubisoft's upcoming Vin Diesel vehicle, Wheelman, will still feature one of its rides: the Pontiac G8. Oh, and there's also a Saturn -- well, the Opel Astra --...

New Riddick: Dark Athena trailer previews plot

Vin Diesel vehicles don't really need much of a plot to be brilliant or successful (see: xXx) -- regardless of this fact, it seems the upcoming follow-up to one of the most surprisingly well put together licensed games ever, Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, has a story we're itching...
