Storm Shadow Is Joining Arena Shooter Cyphers

Storm-Shadow-Cyphers---Hisstank In video game news, reports that Storm Shadow of G.I.Joe fame will be joining Cyphers, an online shooter from Nexon. From the source -

Cyphers, the online South Korean shooter from Nexon, is adding G.I.Joe’s Storm Shadow to the game as part of an official collaboration with Hasbro. This is interesting since Storm Shadow is played by Korean actor Byung Hun Lee in the recent G.I.Joe movie.

While the game is billed as a shooter, most people inside straddle both long-range and short-range weaponry with tendencies for one or the other.In Storm Shadow’s case, he tends to the close range, using leaping attacks, fast slashes and what appears to be an electric storm attack. From long range, he can also throw his shurikens.

How Chris Pratt Almost Became A G. I. Joe

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Official-Photo-Chris-Pratt-Quill-Star-Lord-Intro Everybody's talking about Chris Pratt these days. Why? Because he's the great Star-Lord.

Seriously though, critics and fans are phrasing his role in worldwide hit; Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy. But he recently revealed a secret; He has auditioned for G. I. Joe: Retaliation.

Speaking to Esquire, the actor said…

"When Guardians of the Galaxy was pitched to me, I said, "I don't think so." I just didn't picture myself getting the role. I didn't want to go and embarrass myself like I did when I auditioned for G.I. Joe a couple of years previously. I went in there, and halfway through I saw the director's eyes just glaze over. It made sense—I was a little heavy and out of shape. I was not gonna play someone from G.I. Joe. I did not look like a G.I. Joe action figure come to life."

We do not know whether he'll return, it's highly unlikely. But who knows? Maybe he will, may be he won't.

G.I.Joe Battleground Takedown Event - The Serpent Writhes Now Live!

GI-Joe-Battleground-The-Serpent-Writhes---Hisstank The Joes, shaken by the events simulated (or, perhaps, foreseen) by WarSim, have no choice but to once again enter Mainframe's ultimate training simulator. This time, they find themselves in a newly-rebuilt Pit, but the moment they "arrive" the alarms go off—Cobra is attacking!

Under the cover of a full-scale frontal assault, Zartan and Storm Shadow infiltrate the Pit and wreak absolute havoc! Their goal is anyone's guess, but as Zartan impersonates a seemingly endless parade of friends-turned-enemies, Storm Shadow makes his steady, deadly way towards their objective...

Can G.I. JOE's best operatives—bolstered by Elite agents Dojo, Firewall, and Helix—repel the Cobra attack? What could cause The Enemy to mount such a bold attack on the headquarters of their greatest foes? Find out what happens when "The Serpent Writhes," the exciting Takedown Event on now!
