It's seventeen years after Street Fighter II. Games have gone 3D, HD, analogue and online, but still Street Fighter is the best and most important fighting game series around. With the new HD remix of Super Turbo on the way along with the stunning-looking SFIV, we examine just why that is.
Bully was released near the tail end of the PS2's major releases, so maybe you didn't have a chance to play the game back in 2006 - like, if you sent your PS2 off to Antarctica on a ceremonial burning raft on PS3 launch day. Whether you played or not, the game was great, and messing around with the 360 and Wii versions, Bully: Scholarship Edition, which are due out March 4, reaffirmed that the game is on track to be as good as the original
He’s the willy-waving antithesis of Super Mario, the platforming pervert with a spike bigger than Sonic’s. Yes, Leisure Suit Larry is back for another boobalicious bout of debauchery, fondling and all-round naughtiness.The game takes place in the sinful city of LA on the Tinseltown movie studio back lots and sees Larry Laffer’s studio in deep trouble when the rivals across the street send in a mole to infiltrate and leak all
Everyone loves Wii Sports, and in Japan - where it isn’t bundled with the console - it has sold in excess of a squillion copies, or thereabouts. The latest contender in the quest to outdo Nintendo’s motion-sensing masterstroke, Deca Sports has gone for the ‘bigger is better’ approach - it’s packed with 10 fully fledged sports games, and if it plays as good as it looks, it might be a great value.The list of events:
Popping out to say hello at the recent Jump Festa geek-stravaganza - a massive fan festival organized by the good folks at Shonen Jump magazine - the WiiWare title we’re most excited about is still looking great.Playing as the distinctly kingdom-less King Leo, we already knew that the architectonic force that allows him to pluck buildings from the ground was powered by spirit stones; it’s the hunt for these stones that is
If you told us a robotics manufacturer accidentally mixed parts from household appliances with prototype military machines to create polite, yet sophisticated deathbots, we’d totally believe you. We’ve seen Terminator and know that clashes for the survival of humankind are imminent. Such is the case in Robocalypse, a deliciously hilarious RTS set for release on the DS this summer from upstart developer Vogster.OBS –
Celebrities are good at so many things. They entertain us with their beauty, style, charm and frequent intoxication. They create wonderful movies, music and sex tapes. They save the world by adopting, and crazily naming, every orphaned child they meet. They even tell us what to buy, what to eat and what to wear! Why, then, must they be good at gaming as well?
Purged by flames, the world’s remaining population is mutated by distorted fantasies, created to help stomach the inhospitable remains. Heartless meshes of flab, cogs and metalwork - enough to give even Silent Hill’s freaks the willies - these ‘meta-beings’ crawl the world, devouring humanity’s leftovers. Distorted fantasy being the very definition of ‘baroque’ itself. Animal Crossing it ain’t. It
With all the new gameplay features and fan service heaped upon it by Namco Bandai and the impeccable license, Ultimate Ninja 3's complete package should have any Naruto fan curious enough for at least one more last-gen joyride.
Say what you will about archaic traditions and Hallmark marketing schemes that pander to consumerism and chocolate lovers - Valentine’s Day is here and there’s nothing we can do about it but celebrate. In some countries, Valentines are flowers, chocolate or just the random smooch given to pretty girls; but here in the States and over in the United Kingdom (except Wales – they’ve got Dydd Santes Dwynwen),
