Street Fighter vs. Tekken !!!??1!?!??

Posted in Game News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2010 by Mat$kat

That’s right folks…that’s “STREET FIGHTER VS. TEKKEN” you see typed right there above.

After years of these two fighting franchises spawning several games each, soon we’ll be able to settle grudge matches with titles like “Ryu vs. Law” and “Yoshmitsu vs. Chun Li”.

At the 2010 EVO Fighting Championships, in Las Vegas, sever lucky attendees got the chance to watch a teaser video – sending waves of hype through the fighting community.

For years, Capcom’s “Vs.” series of games, starting with Street Fighter vs. X-Men (and currently, with the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3) has wowed audiences of the genre, and spawned several other “Vs.” games, most recently Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

But…this isn’t the first time that Capcom has taken the “Vs.” series not just across franchises, but across DEVELOPERS. Lest we not forget about Capcom’s fantastic “Capcom vs. SNK” series.

Players have a lot to look forward to, and to imagine as all the info we have is a few camera shots, and a teaser\trailer.

Of course, I’ve includes these below.

Check ’em out, and get excited…I know I am.

God of War III Midnight Launch

I attended my local Gamestop’s midnight launch for God of War III.

Expecting more of a turnout, I brought along a couple of my custom joysticks – planning to do a bit of old-fashioned networking.

The turnout was indeed small, but I managed to  gladhand some local gamers and hand out a few ghetto business cards – the main goal though, was picking up God Of War III. Ignoring my better judgement, I also picked up the newly released Metro 2033,  which so far is a pleasant surprise.

All in all, it was cool and now some local dudes know about my joysticks….now to bust some heads…

“I shall have my revenge!”

I’ll be REALLY busy…..

Since my wife and I are trying to regulate our budget to accomodate saving for a new house , and funding the startup of Matskat’s Customs, I got the opportunity to stock up on games today…as I won’t be able to buy games like I used to (on a whim, every Tuesday when new releases come out).

So, in order to maximize my play, and purchase economically , I picked up some games that traditionally have lots of playtime, or high levels of replayability.

I’m gonna be busy with these for a bit.

Mass Effect 2 – BioWare’s space opera odyssey, gorgeous and grand in scale, this one’s gonna be a while.

Final Fantasy XIII – I haven’t been interested in FF since VII, what with all the androgynous  male characters, and bubble-gum pop style…but this one looks beautiful, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

Yakuza 3 – Sega’s brawling drama continues the story of Kazuma Kiryu – The Dragon of Dojima. Between kicking Yakuza ass and playing pachi-slots, there’s a lot to do in Tokyo when you’re a white suit wearing gangster.

Espgaluda II – Cave’s latest region-free shooter. Continues the story of a pair of hermaphroditic heroes, blasting enemies amidst a curtain of gunfire. This is Cave’s last region-free offering. Hopefully the western success of this and Mushihimesama convinced Cave to localize future games (I’m looking at YOU, Ketsui!)

These should keep me busy…now to convince the wife to let me splurge next Tuesday for God of War III….
