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...

Vin Diesel reveals his dream game, Barca BC

Rumor: Ubisoft picks up Midway's 'Wheelman'

Employing a wheelman, especially one of Vin Diesel caliber, can get kinda pricey. Think about it: an ordinary personal driver is a luxury reserved for the Richies of the rich -- imagine what one who sees in pitch black, morphs into an iron giant, and walks around calling himself "Triple X" and...
