It’s the mother flippin’. A new Street Fighter IV trailer has gone out to the masses and it delivers exactly as it should. That is to say it brings the new screens we’ve been seeing of the original World Warriors to glorious life.
Last month Midway announced Mortal Kombat vs. DC and the concept made a lot of gamers gripe. There was a similar reaction to the January announcement that Yoda and Vader would be playable characters in Soul Caliber IV. But why do gamers show such scorn toward these crossovers?
People tell me that complaining gets you nowhere, that I should be happy with what I’m given. Boy do those morons have egg on their face now. Amidst whining and complaining of seeing the same thing from Street Fighter IV so far, Capcom has graciously revealed new screens. And yes, I get my mother flippin’ bent over bendy punch screenshot. The world is now a happy place.
Recently, I did a piece on why the new game, Jumper, based off the movie of the same name, will almost definitely blow the big Blimpie sandwich, and I’m probably right, it most likely will. The game, like most movie tie-in games, is being rushed to make sure it comes out around the same time as the movie, meaning we can expect glitches aplenty much like other cinema friendly crap like Enter the Matrix, and the biggest mistake in gaming history, E.T. for the 2600.
Microsoft is just not going to give up on Japan, no matter how many times they’re beat down. Officials from the company have announced that the Xbox 360 Arcade will launch in Japan on March 6th, with the intention of finally getting the eastern market to take them seriously. Last year’s western release resulted in a surprisingly popular little system, even though it had no hard drive.
We’ve been hoping to see a sale system implemented with the Xbox LIVE Arcade. Something more official than the typical “2 Days ONLY!!” price drops that have been prevalent. Similar to the Platinum Hits program seen with retail box games, tomorrow Xbox LIVE Arcade Hits will premiere. And with it a number of now classic Arcade titles will be on sale.
Tetsuya Mizubuchi sure knows his music based shooters. With titles like Rez and Lumines under his belt, the natural extension to Every Extended Extra was not hard to come by. Microsoft announced that this week’s Live Arcade releases include the “extreme” version of EEE, including 100 times the enemies and chain reactions than ever before.
