$20 Game of the Week: Project X Zone 2 (Nintendo 3DS)


I love crossovers. Whether it’s Super Smash Brothers, Capcom vs SNk, King of Fighters, Warriors Orochi, Marvel vs Capcom, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, or really, anything vs Capcom, there is just something special about taking players from one company and either putting them against or teaming them up with characters from another company. Thus, when Project X Zone hit the Nintendo 3ds in 2012, bringing together characters from Capcom, Sega, and Namco, I had to check it out. I was not disappointed. Of course in 2015 when a sequel was announced with a 2016 release date, that became an instant must-watch game for 2016. Again, I was not disappointed.

Toy Fair 2017: Tranformers Titans Return Trypticon

The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.

  • Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
  • Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
  • Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
  • No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
  • Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
  • Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.

Unicron.com got a great video interview with Hasbro designer, John Warden.

Here are the official renders of the figure from Hasbro:

         



Top Ten Games To Watch Out For in the First Half of2017

Tales of Breseria was released in the U.S. this past week. Introducing new changes to Namco’s ‘Tales of’ franchise, Tales of Breseria is one of many games that no doubt make an impact this year.

Yeah, 2016 sucked. Lets not mince words about it. Many of our favorite celebrities died (including Harambe the Gorilla), the election ended in the worst possible manner, and Batman vs Superman wasn’t as successful as people wanted it to be. However, it wasn’t all bad. The Cubs won their first title in nearly a century, the Cavs bought Cleveland its first major sports title in over 52 years, Civil War, Dr. Strange, and Deadpool were all awesome, Netflix rolled right along with flicks like Stranger Things, the Get Down, and Luke Cage, and best of all, there were a boatload of awesome games that were released throughout the year. Doom and Mafia III were unexpectedly awesome, X-Com 2 and Civilization 6 both set new standards in the strategy genre, Final Fantasy XV made the rpg franchise relevant again, Titanfall 2 and Watch Dogs 2 surpassed their predecessors, Stardew Valley, Mother Russia Bleeds, Hyper Light Valley, and The Witness held it down for the indie scene, while Overwatch became this year’s big new IP and multiplayer sensation. 2016 also laid the foundation for 2017 and beyond. Check out after the jump to learn about 10 games hitting consoles, handhelds, and pc, most of which hitting before the summer, one of which is already in stores now.

Square-Enix and Marvel Team Up for The Avengers Project.


Yesterday, both Square-Enix and Marvel Entertainment hinted that they would both have big announcements to make. Many people wondered that since both announcements were happening on the same day and at the same time, they would be related to each other, like say, Marvel Characters appearing in Kingdom Hearts 3. Well, this morning the two companies did have an announcement. While it was not quite The Avengers teaming up with Sora (although we probably shouldn’t rule that out), what we do have is just as awesome. Marvel is teaming up with Square-Enix and Developers Crystal Dynamics (Tomb Raider) and Eidos Montreal (Deux Ex) for The Avengers Project, a series of games which will supposedly introduce a new Marvel Universe in gaming. Obviously little has been revealed about the first game and its gameplay, and it will be a while before we learn any more, as according to Square, we’ll hear more details in 2018.

Looks like Marvel really is getting serious about its console gaming presence again, and a colloboration with Square-Enix has the potential to be huge. While the long wait is a drag, we’ll have Telltale’s Guardians of teh Galaxy Game, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, and Insomniac’s PS4 Spider-man title (assume it comes out this year) to tide us over until then.



Star Wars Episode VIII Title Revealed


As you can see, the subtitle of episode 8 is “The Last Jedi”. Of course it doesn’t tell us much more about the film. This isn’t the first time a Star Wars property has used the name “The last Jedi”. A 1981 issue of Marvel’s Star Wars comic used the title for a standalone story written by Mike Barr and Walt Simonson. A 2013 novel written by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff told the story of a Jedi being pursued by Vader who is carrying out Order 66. Also a 2014 fan film makes use of the title. Episode 8 is due later this year on December 15.



$20 Game of the Week Double Shot: Shaolin vs Wu-Tang & Kings of Kung Fu (PC)


I’m sure many of us remember those Saturday Afternoon Kung-fu flicks. It’s difficult to look at films like Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Dance of the Drunk Mantis, and Five FIngers of Death and not see the inspiration for modern day fighters such as Tekken and Mortal Kombat. Hell, look at Fei Long and all the other Bruce Lee look-alikes you see in various fighters. Kings of Kung Fu and Shaolin vs Wu-Tang is a pair of fighters from jae Lee productions that pay tribute to these old movies. For a pair of independently developed fighting games, these aren’t half bad.
