Award-winning Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov illuminates the life and legend of Genghis Khan in his stunning historical epic, MONGOL. Based on leading scholarly accounts and written by Bodrov and Arif Aliyev, MONGOL delves into the dramatic and harrowing early years of the ruler who was born as Temudgin in 1162.
As it follows Temudgin from his perilous childhood to the battle that sealed his destiny, the film paints a multidimensional portrait of the future conqueror, revealing him not as the evil brute of hoary stereotype, but as an inspiring, fearless and visionary leader. MONGOL shows us the making of an extraordinary man, and the foundation on which so much of his greatness rested: his relationship with his wife, Borte, his lifelong love and most trusted advisor.

Journey to the West is a classic Chinese tale that has been retold millions of times. It's been referenced by a variety of media, from the movie the Forbidden Kingdom to even Dragon Ball. Asura Online takes the player into a Chinese-themed fantasy world of humans and demon beasts. At the forefront the humans and demon beasts are at war with each other. This is also where the game's name comes to play. "Asura" in East Asian cultures normally refers to demigods, and in this world, where the Monkey King is a key character, there may actually be demigods.
Asura Online uses both videos and still images to tell the story of what has transpired. The demons lost the war, the great dragon was defeated, the great demon generals are dead and the Monkey King has left on the Journey to the West. The player's character, it turns out, is one of the game's great demon generals and instead of perishing like everyone thought, is alive and imprisoned in some kind of hell. Needless to say, the player breaks out.
