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!
Sony Online Entertainment, Mojang Studios
and Trion Worlds were among the top honorees at the Game Developers Choice Online Awards. Held last night during the GDC
Online event in Austin, Texas the evening celebrated excellence in online
gaming, and included the induction of Everquest into GDC's hallowed Hall of
Fame, as well as industry recognition for Minecraft, Rift and a handful of
other well-known multiplayer titles...
new Men in Black movie might be experiencing production problems (word
is the script needed mid-shoot rewrites, so you know it's good), but
that hasn't stopped Activision from assembling together a team of
highly-skilled agents to work on a game based on the franchise. Today,
the Call of Duty publisher revealed that they're putting together a Men
in Black game and aiming it for a Spring 2012 release date... as long as
the movie finishes in time. You know, if they're able to find funny
things for Will
Smith to say as he shoots aliens and talks to a dog...
You know how DS and 3DS game cases are quite small compared to DVD-sized
game cases? And how PSP game boxes are tall and thin? Well, there's no
such concessions where the PS Vita is concerned. Pictures have emerged
from Japan showing the new media's storage styling... and frankly
they're disproportionately large considering the size of the game card. A
bit like keeping a mindisc in the sleeve for a '78... not that I'm
implying any impending obsolescence in the Vita's proprietary media.
Erm... let's see these pictures then, shall we?
Remember how PSP Go was supposed to let you transfer UMD games onto the
system's hard drive? Well, it never happened. The closest we got was a
reward scheme that let you get some free games if you registered any
single UMD, even though the message that flashed up on the screen said
'you may now download this game from the PlayStation Store'. Well, it's
all coming back, only this time with Vita, if rumours are to be
believed. Only this time, suggestions are that you can pay a small fee
and transfer any game.
Entertainment’s newest title Dungeon Defenders has got a sweet package thanks
to some help from Valve. By pre-ordering the toon shaded tower defense game on Steam, you’ll get an Aperture Science’s portal device for the huntress hero
class and four Team Fortress 2 familiars to assist your team…
There have been so many character reveals for Street Fighter
X Tekken, and the game is coming out soon enough that you might think the devs
are out of characters to tease, right? Then Capcom surprises you by dropping
three new teaser trailers for multiple fighters in the crossover battler. But
just who do these allude to? Some seem fairly obvious, others are real head
scratchers. See for yourself…
Only a cynical soul like
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named could resist the charms of the LEGO games. True,
they're not for everyone in terms of gameplay, but come on, it's little toy
people re-enacting scenes from famous movies. Adorable, right? No? See if
this debut trailer for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 does anything to melt your
cold, curmudgeonly heart...
Game makers will have four more ways to
take home a trophy at next year's GAME British Academy Video Game Awards. This
week, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced it is
powering up its video game categories with new awards for first timers, online
titles, and virtual actors...
Remember last week when we all got worked up over a mysterious PlayStation 3 teaser video? It was pretty exciting. Anyway, the subject of the teasing was set to be revealed today, October 5. So now we can reveal that the teaser was teasing *drum roll*... a new PlayStation 3 advert! Er, yay!
