Some footage and screens from Factor 5's Superman project have managed to make their way online, courtesy of Unseen64.

OK, clear the next half hour or so of your day, because you simply have to read Ben Fritz' stunning piece on the downfall of Brash (oh, you remember, it was the game studio that aimed to change the image of terrible licensed games by making horrible licensed games).

Remember when we found out that Brash Entertainment had stopped paying developers -- you know, a week before the publisher completely folded?

Several weeks after another Brash Entertainment co-founder bolted and CEO Mitch Davis admitted his company had been "overly ambitious" in its first year, the publisher of really bad movie-based games has laid out a new "strategic cost reduction plan."

Shockingly, the Brash formula of churning out abysmal movie-based games with little (read: no) redeeming qualities apparently hasn't panned out so well. Now, another of the company's co-founders, Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull, has followed the lead of former boss Nicholas Longano and vertically di...

Ok, we don't mean to be cynical. A Saw game does have a lot of potential and Brash Entertainment has seen fit to give the movie license to next-gen newcomer Zombie, the studio behind America's Army. We're interested how the game will stack up to other games like Barbie Horse Adventures and... oh wa...
