With Capcom being in the business of making dreams come true, they’ve announced their forthcoming cross over game: Street Fighter x Tekken. Unlike Namco x Capcom this will be a beat ‘em up. Fans in attendance at Comic con probably had to run to the toilets to wipe up, with others heading to the 7 eleven to buy Pampers when Capcom dropped this bombshell. Or rather, bombshells. Because the Street Fighter and Tekken cross over will spawn two games.
Street Fighter x Tekken will be developed by Capcom and use the Street Fighter IV engine. Whilst Namco will be developing Tekken x Street Fighter, which will utilize the game engine used for their Tekken games. The fanboygasms rage on, and probably will do for some time.
You can check out a trailer of Capcom’s take, along with screenshots after the jump.
So this is what Marvel vs. Capcom 3 looks like in game. And I’m thinking: Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in HD. No bad thing. Tats ‘n Caps was a very nice looking game. The models look like arse up close. But other than that it was a great looking game with superb animation.
These screenshots of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 aren’t doing much for me. Then again; I wasn’t sold on Street Fighter IV‘s style when I first saw screenshots, but was won over once I saw the game running. So I’ll hold out too harsh a judgement until that day comes, which will probably be soon with this year’s E3 around the corner.
It’s nice seeing what the game will look like. But what I really want to know is if Chris Redfield will have a Level 3 super combo attack which see’s him punch and throw a rock 10 feet across the screen with his bare hands. And if he’ll have a Super called I’m a pimp, bitch! whereby he dons his Zebra skin suit (made from a Zebra which Chris skinned himself with his bare hands) whilst Sheva and Jill go mad with the firepower.
Not only did this gamer complete Bayonetta, he owned the whole damn thing by achieving Pure platinum medals on every single stage, on every difficulty, with Bayonetta and the 2 unlockable characters! That right there is some serious skill, love and dedication. Those who have played the game know this is not an easy thing to do; with strict demands to achieve a Pure platinum rank and also that God awful camera being an enemy in itself.

KOEI, widely known for their free-roaming, button mashing, hack n’ slash titles has just released a new trailer for the upcoming Fist of the North Star title slated to hit Asian markets on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year. Similar to what you would find in games like Dynasty Warriors or Kingdom Under Fire, KOEI’s Fist of the North Star is all about mowing down wave after wave of baddies in an unrelenting and brutal manner.
While any plans to release the title in North America has yet to be determined, one thing is for certain: this one is sure to melt the face buttons off of your controller.

Woa, talk about a black Friday shopping spree! The US Air Force spent this Friday buying 2,200 brand new PS3s to make a new super computer. Because you know, the PS3’s cell processor are good enough to direct missiles and even raised military concerns back in the day.
It’s also worth mentioning that this new build is to replace their previous PS3 super computer which was only composed of a measly 336 PS3s. I say they should just drop them off over terrorist training grounds along with a few pallets of Mountain Dew and Cheetos and let the terrorists vent their anger videogame therapy.
D’ya know that Australian sounding chick in the last epic to the eye balls trailer of Final Fantasy XIII? Well, she goes by the name of Oerba Yun Fang. And as you can see, Oerba is a bit of a looker. Sexy in a mysteriously exotic kinda way. But the name is a weird one. It sounds like a Korean delicacy! I honestly would’ve preferred her name to have been Oerba Kimchee (seeing as I touched on the subject of Korean delicacies and all). Her name certainly gives licence for Final Fantasy XIII‘s black dude Sazh to drop a corny line like “So, your name’s Oerba Yun Fang? Woooo, you a young thang!” and then give a reassuring look to himself like he just dropped the funniest and slickest line ever. I actually wouldn’t mind that…
Tekken 6 isn’t the series’ best soundtrack. I don’t think Namco are ever going to touch the awesomness that was Tekken 3‘s soundtrack. But 6 is certainly the most varied of the bunch sonically. Each piece is completely different in style and tone to the last. Many of them you wouldn’t associate with a Tekken game at all.
Amongst the various styles that the Namco sound team play with, “Fallen colony” is my pick of the bunch. It’s just a bad ass piece of music. Distinctly Japanesey, yet with many musical styles thrown into the mix. Live drums, kickin’ guitar solos, strings, chants, trumpets, percussions, drum ‘n bass, synths and several bars of awesome.
Dishing out cans of whoop ass to this song feels incredibly gratifying. More so if you manage to smash your sucker of a victim through the glass floor of the stage this music features on, and then juggle their arse up off the floor. Good times…good times.
A while back I had mentioned receiving an email from Netflix asking me my thoughts on whether I’d use the instant streaming service on a PS3. I crossed my fingers wishing it were true, now months later a little birdie in the form of an uptick in share price, yes I watch financial markets, sends me sleuthing. What I find is news of a deal between Netflix and the Playstation 3.
Users will need to request a PS3/Netflix disc allowing them access to the service and if you already have a Netflix account, the functionality is free. Depending on how you frame the argument you can say Netflix is already free on the Xbox360, that is if you omit the $50.00 Gold Membership XboxLive charge.
However, as the title suggests, the devil is in the details: “Watching instantly is included with an unlimited Netflix membership”. I’m not totally sure what this means since all Netflix plans include unlimited instant watching (except 1). One might complain/scoff at the idea of having to keep handy a PS3 Netflix disc around to play content, but licensing plays a major part in this.
The original Xbox needed a DVD dongle (at the cost of Xbox owners) to play DVDs whereas the PS2 didn’t and Sony had to pay a large upfront fee for licensing. When Netflix first appeared on the Xbox360, Sony Pictures and its subsidiaries were blocked out of being shown on instant streaming to Xbox360 owners. With Sony/PS3 now reaching a content agreement, the full Netflix instant library may soon be available, but only to Playstation 3 owners.
I had remembered seeing something from studio house Quantic Dream, about an Origami Killer. Aside from seeing the beautifully rendered screens and marketing buzzwords such as “innovative and experimental” it was easy to look over, much ado about nothing. Then comes the ingame footage and now, a developer diary of sorts.
It’s impressive. I don’t know much about upcoming game “Heavy Rain”, but Guillaume de Fondaumiere speaks above regarding the experience and focusing on the adult audience. Told via 4 playable characters Heavy Rain inputs every action into the overall storyline as you search for the killer. What I find most interesting are the statements of “game overs” being a thing of the past. This will clearly be a film like experience when playing, but I’m not sure how they will be able to pull it off in a neat package. I approach with cautious optimism.
Breathing new life in old designs, Ben Heck’s mods transform otherwise stationary consoles, making them portable. The newly released PS3 Slimline was the next beast to tackle. Combining the unit with a 17” widescreen HD Display and custom case with built-in sound controls, the PS3 laptop is a brilliant hybrid.
While a little bulky and I’m sure quite heavy; similar to the Xbox360 Laptop I can see myself taking the PS3 on a family trip. You get Blu-ray media center and gaming platform in a nice tight little package. My only changes would be to include a way to video/audio out.
