Sony sweetens the PS Vita cross-play deal with new promo

[Update: I originally wrote this all wrong and suggested games like UMvC3 would be free because I have shit for brains. I've fixed it all up now. Sorry about the original post being basically totally wrong and stupid. At...

Review: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (Vita)
by Dale North

Jeez. How many more copies of this game do you need? Capcom has us in a continual air juggle with these upgrades and re-releases lately, so it's easy to become indifferent to a new title with an old name. That said, even if you have it already in some other form, you're going to want to get this Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. It's ... freakin' beautiful. Portable fighting has never looked so good or played so well. 

Damn it, Capcom. Take our money. Again.

With Vita I am the greatest UMvC3 player alive!

Bwahahaha! Bow before me, scrubs. No one can touch me at Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3! Okay, so that's not true. I suck. And I'm a sore loser on top of that. But, with the PlayStation Vita's touchscreen controls and a little...

I wish I had made Katawa Crash

This post is already way too much about me and way too little about the story, so how about we take that narcissism as far as we can and see what happens? I'm sad. I can't get keyboard-controlled Flash games to wor...

Marvel vs. Capcom DLC creates royal controversy in Spain

A piece of downloadable content for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that puts Magneto in a kingly uniform has caused a bit of a stir in Spain. According to Spanish reports, the uniform greatly resembles that worn on occasion by ...

Review: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
by Jesse Cortez

When Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was released, fans jumped for joy at the long awaited return of the Marvel Vs. series. With the addition of brand new characters, a new mechanic called "X-factor," and the promise of even more characters in the form of DLC, this appeared to be the fighting game to get. However, not even a year later, amidst complaints of how "broken" X-factor was and how certain characters were overpowered, Capcom responded with the announcement of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. As a budgeted upgrade to the "vanilla" version, there was some hostility towards Capcom's releasing this game to cash in on the flaws of the first installment.

Now that the game has launched, I've been fortunate to spend enough time with it to form an opinion on how it stacks up as a new installment in this franchise. Is this game a legitimate update that is worth your money, or should this have been an optional DLC purchase as many people were demanding?

Colliding worlds: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 cinematic

So, about that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 -- it's got quite the opener. Having been tragically born without the fighting-game gene, I can't really do much with the series other than watch others play professionally. But I ...

Rocket Raccoon and Frank West 'officially' join MvC3
by Wesley Ruscher

Capcom didn't do a very good job keeping the full roster of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 a secret from the gaming world when they announced the first four of twelve new characters back at San Diego Comic Con. For the sake of today's reveal though, let's pretend that we never saw that and revel in the fact that Dead Rising's Frank West and Marvel's Rocket Raccoon are now officially part of UMvC3's cast of warriors.

I got a chance to give the drunken photographer and furry guardian of the galaxy -- as well as most of the new cast of UMvC3 -- a go at a Capcom press event last week and I have to say both these unconventional fighters suit the game quite well.

Ultimate MvC3's Galactus mode was inspired by a hack

Galactus mode might be a silly excuse to smash the crap out of the cast of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but did you know its origins came to be from an old arcade hack? When talking to Capcom's Seth Killian about the mode an...
