The Hyperkin Retron3

In just a few minutes, I could be playing any of a few thousand Nintendo games ranging from the horrible Japanese Star Wars game to Super Mario Bros. 3, thanks to the magic of ROMs. But what about all those beautiful, seemingly indestructible (but always dusty) game cartridges from the heyday of 8 and 16-bit games that so many of us have stored in a plastic tote in our closets? I don’t know about you, but many of my consoles bit the dust years ago; some from the abuse that comes with overuse, others from neglect. Read More


Top Ten Most Wanted Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Characters

The announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from Capcom was quite possibly one of the greatest mass internet nerd-gasms of all time. Fighting fans have been screaming for this game for a decade. License issues barred any hope of it ever happening (and actually got the PS2 and Xbox ports pulled after a brief production run), and the presumed death of 2D fighting games basically made it a fanboy pipe dream forevermore. Well, not anymore. 2D fighters are back in a big way, and Marvel's popularity has skyrocketed since the beginning of the nearly ten year franchise moratorium. Think about it. The last MvC title was released all the way back before the first Toby McGuire Spider-Man movie. A lot has changed since the Dreamcast's swan song. Marvel is now owned by Disney. 8-bit Mega Man is cool again. Yet a few things stay the same, like the fact that Hulk movies still suck, and fans eternally obsessing about who is and who isn't going to make the cut for what will undoubtedly be the most bitched-about fighting game roaster of all time. Marvel and Capcom both share an absurd wealth of classic franchise faces. Will they rely on familiar brand staples and fan favorites, or take a few risks with new or generally unknown cult characters? V.S. series regular Chun-Li is obviously in (her silhouette is on the teaser art), and the much welcomed new comic relief Deadpool made his debut at E3. What else is in the cards is unknown (Gambit plz), but here's a list of ten essentials that Capcom needs to make happen. #10: Blade Dating back to 1973, Blade's character (based loosely on a composite of various black actors, most specifically Jim Brown) came to life in Marvel Comics' The Tomb of Dracula #10. You could count the reasons Blade deserves to be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 all day. He has a background in street fighting. He's a master swordsman and lethal with throwing knives, so he can counter an assault from Strider. He is a trained marksman who can compete with Chris Redfield's heavy artillery. Most importantly of all, he's a freaking vampire hunter. Blade versus any number of Darkstalkers (Morrigan & Felicia, already having been confirmed) is something worth the price of admission alone. To paraphrase Darth Vader, "It's time to increase the level of black representation on the committee.". Let's get captain flat-top in the game Capcom. Read More


Media: Super Street Fighter IV - Features Trailer

Capcom has released a new trailer for Super Street Fighter IV which reveals a number of new features, tweaks, and additions for the second coming of what many consider to be the best fighting game of 2009. "One-inch punch, Mecha-Zangief, Shadaloo Cammy, and the mother of all shoryukens" await in the video below, as well as the long-rumored Ultra Combos: Video Games | Super Street Fighter IV | Exclusive Features TrailerXBox 360 | Playstation 3 | Nintendo Wii Personally, I'm looking forward to the rival battles-- particularly if they are integrated into the story mode, not unlike what was included in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Each character having their own mid- and final bosses and unique interactions with them definitely adds replay value, to say nothing of further incentive to try characters you might not have otherwise.

Random Video of the Day: Street Fighter Alpha Generations Stupidity

A lot of people like to pour the hate on the old USA network Street Fighter cartoon, but that hate is misdirected; it was cheesy at times, but had its moments. Still, there is something far worse than that out there which warrants fans' hatred much more... Since Street Fighter Alpha 2 is now available today on the Virtual Console, it seemed a fitting day to post this series of clips from the abomination known as Street Fighter Alpha: Generations: The Switcher, who edited this piece together, says this is "The worst single piece of media based on Street Fighter. I'd rather watch the [A]merican cartoon series a trillion times over, then to watch this nonsensical, boring, flat, and completely un-entertaining anime that's not based on anything." I am completely inclined to agree; I would rather watch the Raul Julia movie and USA toon on a loop, unless I had insomnia, as those two never managed to put me to sleep. True story. Read More


Nintendo Download - 12/07/09 - Classic Rayman and Street Fighter Games Lead a Luminous December Line

Nintendo is making December a pretty good month to remember in terms of Nintendo Download updates. Is it a holiday thing, or will it continue into the New Year? Only time will tell, but for now, let's just enjoy. No sign of the promised Blaster Master, Pilotwings, of Super Smash Bros., but the month is still young. Even so, today's updates are nothing to sneeze at, with the original Rayman on DSiWare for 800 DSi Points. Joining it are Ball Fighter and Pop Island for 500 each, while ARMY DEFENDER and myNotebook: Red only ask for 200 each. WiiWare is highlighted by the 800 point Stop Stress: A Day of Fury; can't attest to the quality yet, but a name such as that certainly sounds promising. It is joined by My Dolphin and MAGNETIS for 500 Wii Points each, as well as Flowerworks, which demands a whopping 1,000 Wii Points. Finally, we get to Virtual Console, which is bringing two hits. The first is the Super NES version of Street Fighter Alpha 2, a game which pushed the console to its limits back in the day, and the other is the original Shinobi for the SEGA Genesis. Both games command 800 Wii Points. "7" seems to be a lucky number, as this is a fine selection. For more information on each title, check out the press release after the cut. Read More


Random Video of the Day: Street Fighter Alpha 2 Live-Action

What better way to ring in the new year in Japan than with Street Fighter Alpha (aka Zero) 2? That's apparently what one variety show figured, and the results are as follows: Capcom shows great admiration for the attention to detail-- "they even have the rock from the foreground in Chun-Li's stage, for godsakes," yet openly laugh at the "supremely terrible special moves, awkward combat, Chun-Li having her eyebrows burned off by real fire, and not even trying to hide the wire-work, much less editing out Bison getting blasted off the set entirely." Oh, Japan. Where would we be today without you and your ever-growing zaniness? Read More


Capcom PSP Download Games Dated

Capcom announced last Friday, then recently pulled and reconfirmed that within the next month, the last four of its PSP games will be available on the Playstation Store in North America. Their other promised games are still nowhere in sight. Of the nearly 100 PSP games released for download coinciding with the PSPGo launch, Capcom was one of the main companies from whom a lot of games were missing. Currently, Capcom has some games on the store like Ultimate Ghosts n' Goblins, Power Stone Collection, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and their classics collections. According to Capcom's pulled blog post, the October 8th Playstation Store update will include Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Dark Tower. Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max and Capcom Puzzle World were dated for the 15th and 22nd respectively. Capcom seems to be saving two of the most wanted games – Mega Man Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X, for last, pinning them at October 29th and November 5th respectively. Read More


Capcom Bringing 7 PSP Games to Playstation Network, 3 PS1 Games

Along with three previously confirmed PS1 titles rated by the ESRB for Playstation Network release, Capcom has confirmed that it will soon bring seven of its retail PSP games to PSN. The first UMD Legacy title announced is Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded – a PSP version of a collection already downloadable on PSN for the PS3. Capcom also announced Mega Man Powered Up, and Maverick Hunter X – PSP remakes of the original Mega Man and the first Mega Man X respectively.
