Last week we served up 13 of the most exploitable cosplay pics from at Comic-Con 2011 for you to corrupt even further. Many entered, only one will win! Who is it? OK, yeah, it's that guy above. But see inside for the other 19 finalists!
Nearly everyone who plays DC Universe Online has an anecdote about spending a good hour or more in its character creation stage, fine-tuning the costume, getting the colors and powers just right, and then taking a deep breath at the name-generation screen and hoping no one's yet taken that perfect one you just thought…
In September, D.C. Comics' lineup of monthly titles all will restart at issue No. 1, some delivering major changes to their continuities, all of them rebooting—or relaunching, as Jim Lee gently insists it be called. None of this will affect the video game bearing the D.C. name, nor should it.
Yesterday Owen teased us with tales of the series of bizarre challenges that led up to the epic Street Fighter X Tekken battle between Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono and Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada at Comic-Con 2011. Turns out it's even stranger than he made it sound.
Context is key. While this video shows Tekken prevailing over Street Fighter in a series of challenges at Comic-Con 2011, what you don't see is what led up to it.
It wasn't until 72 hours later, when I flew home and resumed an old save file in Batman: Arkham Asylum that I truly appreciated the innate quality of brawling I experienced in Batman: Arkham City, a game I missed at E3 but, at long last, got my paws on at Comic-Con 2011.
Didn't make it to this year's San Diego Comic-Con? You can still catch some of the panels, specifically the Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception rap session in which the game's creators and its acting talent talk about the upcoming PlayStation 3 blockbuster.
Beautiful adventure game Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet comes to Xbox Live Arcade next week. It is a mysterious, quiet game—Dimmu Borgir music notwithstanding—that is Metroid-like, full of exploration, power ups and re-exploration, at least on the single-player side.
Most Twisted Metal games, despite their carnage, have been rated T for Teen. The lone exceptions are Twisted Metal: Black, the 10-year-old PlayStation 2 game with a darker bent, and this fall's equally grisly PlayStation 3 reboot.
A 46-year-old female ninja with a preference for revealing red tights may still have a place in the next Soulcalibur game, according to its creators—the same creators that found a way to make Soulcalibur's Ivy look remarkably young in her advancing years.
Depending upon the consoles you own, the bad news about GoldenEye: Reloaded may still be the good news. It is most definitely a high-definition remastering of last year's title reboot on the Wii. But given the much larger shooter constituency on the PS3 and 360, and online multiplayer's vastly greater viability on…
Metal Gear Solid is getting its very own version of Risk, "the game of strategic conquest," adding Private Military Contractors, a movable continent, the cast of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and the option to launch a nuke from Metal Gear Rex.
The well received Marvel series of tables for the acclaimed pinball simulator Pinball FX 2 will be getting another set of four tables by winter, and also will expand to other platforms in 2012.
See Soulcalibur V's newest confirmed souls—Zwei, Natsu and, looking pretty spry for a 49-year-old, Ivy—do battle in the game's latest trailer, which made its debut at the San Diego Comic-Con. We've shakycam-captured it for your squint-filled enjoyment.
Being a Saturday, day three of Comic-Con 2011 saw no letup in the parade of cosplay across the halls of the San Diego Convention Center. And those who have braved the stampeding horde know why the in-house Starbucks would need an armed patrol by this old soldier.
Not content to limit themselves to Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Tekken X Street Fighter, Tekken 3DS, Tekken for Wii U and Tekken Hybrid, the Tekken team has another product to announce: Tekken Bowl for iOS. It's out now (and it's out for free).
Plush or plastic? If you're an Earthworm Jim fan or a Ratchet & Clank enthusiast, toy maker Mezco Toyz has something for you to consume later this year. For the LittleBigPlanet and Uncharted 3 fans, Mezco has something for you too.
