Recorded the following videos using fraps which hurt the framerate a bit.

We Are Finally Getting Arcana Heart!

This 2D all-girl fighter is finally coming out stateside in April. The game was originally released in Japan sometime late last year. I have been keeping up with the game ever since it was announced last year for the PS2, but never bothered to import it for some reason and I won't have a reason to soon.

The game has a selection of 11 stereotypical anime chicks whom you can customize, Whether you'd like to customize their attacking or defensive skills. There is a Homing Cancel system that allows you to follow your opponent after launching them into the air and lets you pull off combos in midair to keep the combo counter running. Judging from the footage i've seen of the game, the action seems fast and very Guilty Gear-Like.

If you're a fan of fighting games, then should definitely keep an eye out for this game. If anyone has imported or played the game at an arcade, then I would love to hear what you think of the game.

2D over 3D

It's a grandiose shame that a lot of gamers today just want empty, 3D eye candy and shallow gameplay instead of creativity and ingenuity in games. I'm NOT BASHING 3D games at all. There's alot of 'em I like, but overall, I perfer 2D games which to me anyway generally have better & more addictive gameplay and the art style is always a lot more impressive.

A prime example of 2D over 3D are the latest Sonic games. It seems like game developers want everything in 3D these days "just because they can" regardless to whether it destroys the game or upsets long time fans.   read
