People often complain that there's an overabundance of zombie-based video games, or that zombies are the new bacon, overindulged in to the point of nausea. Judging by pieces like Deviant artist Dantemustdie00's "Sonic Zombies", perhaps we're just injecting the undead into the wrong titles.
You just know the team at Reverge Games have been giggling to themselves for the past week in anticipation of today's reveal of Nurse Valentine, the Skullgirls fighter with a prescription for pain.
Sega wants in on the Street Fighter IV-led fighting game resurgence. Their entrant? A new version of 2006's Virtua Fighter 5, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, scheduled for a downloadable release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next summer.
As noted earlier, Street Fighter veteran Dhalsim has been confirmed for Street Fighter X Tekken alongside Poison, and Yoshimitsu and Steve Fox from Tekken. Capcom today released these ten new screens showing them in action. Scarf 'em up! There is undoubtedly more to come.
The first Tuesday in March typically belongs to the baseball simulations - if not then, then the second. (Release dates for neither have been formally announced.) Even if only seven days separate them, that's three huge sports releases crowding the beginning of the month.
Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono says that when the spectacularly popular Street Fighter IV comes to Nintendo's 3DS portable it will be a "perfect port" of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
Madden launch week is probably not the best time to drop pre-release hype for your sports game, unless you're EA Sports MMA. Those guys will take on anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Andre Arlovski, Lyle Beerbohm, Roger Gracie, Alistair Overeem, Kevin Randleman, Vitor Ribeiro, Murilo "Ninja" Rua and Fabricio Werdum. Heard of those guys? Me either. But they're in the roster for EA Sports MMA - and a new batch of screens.
Last week THQ mentioned early access to the UFC Undisputed 2010 demo but didn't mention a release date and was vague on the terms. Now we know it's Thursday, and anyone registering at the Undisputed community site gets a code.
In this batch of screens for EA Sports MMA we can see blood, sweat and spit (I think). Tears qualify as sweat in my book. Do they blow snot bubbles? Does anyone know if the fighters blow snot bubbles?
Word of a new Marvel Vs. Capcom game could be heading our way in the coming months if rumors from website Team Spooky can be believed.
Wii fighter Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom is packed with tons of inside jokes, including plenty I don't quite get.
Lots of video game comics hit comics shops in the U.S. this week. That includes an adaptation of one of the least-discussed Zelda games ever made: The Minish Cap. Plus, Sonic is back. Yes, Sonic comics!
One of the only fighting games I've ever bothered to try and deeply understand outside of Street Fighter is Tekken. There's something about the mechanics, and ability to button tap control each limb, that I love.
Frank West's 5-iron isn't just for beating the crap out of your foe in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. As Seth Killian demonstrates, it can also properly motivate the zombies he summons. Don't mess with Frank. He's covered par fours, you know.
A bevy of BlazBlue screenshots accompany the announcement that Aksys game is bringing the spiritual successor to Guilty Gear to the states this summer.
