Game Review

Expectations for film-to-game adaptations are generally low. Though some have been winners, the majority of movie games are non-discrete shovelware that cash in on a preexisting license. I've played my fair share of movie-based games, and while no title will be as horrid an experience as Over the Hedge, I usually don't hold out hope for these tie-ins. That's why Thor: God of Thunder is such a... Read Review

MVC3 - See Viewtiful Joe, Dormammu and more in Action

  Apparently the fate of two worlds is to cause as many seizures as possible. Capcom has released some new trailers from their upcoming fighter, Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. Included in one of the videos are most of the newly announced characters. In the first video we see Dormammu, Iron Man and Thor against Dante, Viewtiful Joe and Amaterasu (or as we refer to her "the wolfy from Okami"). The game looks like it has kicked up the pace a little bit, because we are having difficulty following exactly what is going on on screen.  Marvel vs Capcom 3 is like a window into a six-year-old's brain after he just finished playing Viewtiful Joe before reading hours of Marvel comics and ingesting copious amounts of Mountain Dew and Hot Pockets; and it is glorious. One more trailer after the jump. Read More

Amaterasu and Thor Announced for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Amaterasu and Thor Announced for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

More news from Comic-Con today, as Capcom has just announced two sort-of new characters for the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. Marvel's Thor is a shoe-in, especially considering the revival the character is facing over the coming year, with a brand new feature film and obligatory video game tie-in coming next summer. Plus, he's got a big ass hammer, and he's totally badass. Less likely, and doubtless more exciting, is the addition of Okami's heavily stylized wolf god, Amaterasu, who will be using her unique Celestial Brush to bring pain and unhappiness down on combatants. Okamiden, the franchise's first iteration since the original PS2 game, will be hitting the DS next year, but the powerful pup is still an odd choice for a fighting game. Hit the jump to continue reading. Read More

Sega Announces Thor Game for 2011

Continuing its run of releasing games based upon Marvel's line of films set to eventually assemble as "The Avengers", Sega has announced plans to release a video game based on next year's "Thor" motion picture for all platforms. One would likely presume such a game would likely feature the titular deity running around Asgard and the real world and saving the planet from the evil forces of Loki - the typical stuff. Then again, it goes without saying that having a game made by Sega may be a task to big even for the god of thunder. Read More
