The Wii U is getting a trio of Virtual Console games today in the form of Final Fight 1-3, and I have to say, pretty much all of them are worth looking at -- especially Final Fight 3, which is my favorite of the bunch. Ninten...

Beyond: Two Souls is getting a demo in early October

Up to this point, I've been unintentionally avoiding Beyond: Two Souls. Perhaps that'll work out for the best. Despite the fact that none of Quantic Dream's prior titles have done much of anything for me, Beyond has piqued my...
