First look at Ubisoft's Kinect game Fighter Within

I have a hard time seeing this ending any other way than "badly," but props for trying, I suppose. Ubisoft has announced an Xbox One launch title called Fighter Within that looks halfway decent until you hear that, yes, it's a Kinect game. A motion-controlled fighter with 1:1 movement tracking -- is this something we even want? I'm genuinely curious.

"Fighter Within embodies the next generation of fighting games. Kicks, punches, counters, throws, combos, special moves, everything you expect from a fighting game is there, powered by jaw-dropping next-gen graphics. The game's 'in your face' animations, real-time wounds, sweat and facial impacts propel players into the heart of the fight."

Wish we would've gotten to see actual gameplay.

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

You got Tomodachi Life in my Smash Bros.

I'm glad Nintendo is paying so much attention to Tomodachi Life. Someone over at the Smash Bros. team really likes the quirky game as well, since it's going to make an appearance as a stage on 3DS. What's really crazy is...more
