Though Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3’s roster additions were leaked
as soon as the game was announced, it’s still cool to see the new characters in
action, especially when it’s the star of a puzzle-based, lawyer game. Since we
first found out Phoenix Wright was in UMVC3, we excitedly speculated just how a
character known for talking and presenting evidence could beat up the Hulk.
With today’s first videos of Ace Attorney gameplay (plus footage of Marvel’s
top space knight, Nova), the mystery is revealed. TAKE THAT!
A week ago we got one of our last looks at Uncharted 3 before the game launches on November 1. In our preview we described Nathan Drake stumbling upon a seemingly empty desert town, then finding it occupied with henchmen out for his blood. Obviously Drake made short work of all of them, but already you knew that because you no doubt read our preview. Now Sony has released a video of that stage’s start, so you can enjoy it all for yourselves right now…
The moment we stopped playing Uncharted 2 we knew we wanted to play Uncharted 3, so we don’t really need anything else to sell us on the game. We appreciate the collector's editions or Subway sandwiches, but if the game shipped in a dingy cardboard sleeve with a blank disc that had “Uncharted 3” written on it in marker we’d be fine. In spite of this, Sony revealed one last goodie to sell you on the game you’ve been dying to play for the last two years: early access to the Starhawk multiplayer beta...
Many people believe that football stars that are selected to grace
the cover of EA's yearly Madden games are "cursed" once they appear on
the game's box. Often, after showing up on the cover, players have their
worst year yet, with many suffering injuries or simply failing to live
up to their potential. So far, the last two fighters to show up on THQ's
UFC games have suffered similar failings: the 2009 cover star, Forrest Griffin, lost his next fight to Anderson Silva in a fairly embarrassing showing. 2010's cover featured the massive, unstoppable Brock Lesnar, who... also was defeated soon after, being knocked out in the first round against Cain Velasquez.
And now, carrying a 34-3-0 record into the Octagon is the fan's pick for UFC Undisputed 3's cover: Anderson Silva...
Competitive-gaming personality Maximilian is known detailed videos covering fighters,
like Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom. For his latest series of “Assist
Me!” videos, Capcom has given the online warrior its blessing to play the pants
off the upcoming Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The first clip gets technical
with Strider and Hawkeye. But if nerdcore comedy skits aren't your jam, skip forward
three minutes to get to the good stuff...
this week, Sony revealed that Uncharted 3:
Drake’s Deception would utilize an Online Pass for multiplayer play,
Resistance 3 did last month. Curious to see if this was a trend that
continuing for future releases, Destructoid reached out to Sony and was
told, fairly bluntly, that the "Online Pass will be incorporated into Uncharted 3 and
future Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) games with
online functionality." This confirms that Sony would, from here on out,
require gamers to type in a password before they jump into online games. Because there's nothing more fun than typing in a 12-digit long code before starting a new game, right?...
Here's a new Uncharted 3 clip, released to mark the game's tie-in with the
Subway chain. Just imagine – there are probably millions for whom this is the
first glimpse of Nathan Drake, and now they'll forever think of him as the new,
weirdly smooth-skinned Jared Fogle. Nice work, Subway! But if you've seen much
of this before (albeit in a fashion that left the relationship between “eating
at Subway” and “winning” vexingly unclear), you'll be more interested in what
the promo can do for your Uncharted 3 experience. Sony has info for you too...
Here's a video recently dug up by Capcom Unity, originally used to promote the
PSP's Ultimate Ghosts 'n' Goblins release in Japan. It's still in Japanese, but
you'll figure it out thanks to the recently added subtitles. Whereas many
trailers will focus on the most action-packed moments in a character's
business, this clip goes another way. It turns out that in the fifteen years
between Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts and the reappearance of series hero Arthur the
Brave Knight... not much happened. And if you think that's a boring time for
players, just think how hard fictional characters have it out here in the
dull-ass real world...
get your hands on an early copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception without needing
to climb into Naughty Dog’s headquarters and steal one from their offices?
Well, as long you’ll be in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., New
York City, or Dallas on October 18-20, you’re in luck...
We all know that Naughty Dog used to make games like Crash Bandicoot and
Jak & Daxter, but who would have thought Uncharted was originally
going to continue in a similar vein? Turns out Xbox's reputation for shooters at the time has a lot to answer for, as its influence and the public's (supposed)
love of all things 'gritty' turned the company's first PS3 foray into
the real-world adventure we know and love today. But listen to what it
