Divekick ad explains Poker, Street Fighter and more

I was working on getting the review for Divekick! posted tonight, but this video by Action Button Entertainment's Tim Rogers just stole my thunder. The first 45 seconds do everything I was trying to do in the opening paragraphs of the review except in a much more expressive and entertaining way. It's like I've been hit by a multi-kill series of headshot K.O.s. I got fraud stamped. 

So the full review will have to wait a little longer, but here is a small sample to tide you over. "Divekick! is about what happens in a fighting game when you and/or your opponent are hurtling through the air, with no option to turn back or second guess, in total love and commitment to the idea of kicking another person in the face. After you get past the charming character designs and other surface level trappings, Divekick! boils down to just two emotional experiences-- flying kick feelings, and thinking about flying kicks feelings. You'd think it would get old, but it doesn't."

Divekick! is out now on Steam, PS3, and PS Vita.

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.more

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more
