The new fighting game character news just keeps rolling in today! Courtesy of the latest issue of Famitsu, we get out first look at the newest addition to the Street Fighter world.

I continue to approach all Street Fighter IV news with cautious optimism. The game is being produced by a man who worked heavily on the god awful Capcom Fighting Evolution, and visually there are many niggling complaints to be made about the game thus far, but at least it's a new Street Fighter game. That's something I wasn't sure I'd ever see. Now Street Fighter IV officially has given us something we never had in the Street Fighter world before -- a red haired, brown-skinned woman with a flair for half-opened, button-up shirts and hair styles popular with Japanese biker gangs in the 1950s.

My feelings on this are understandably mixed. I'm just hoping that unlike Poison for Final Fight, Crimson Viper will never give me cause to think "WHY PENIS WHY?"

That 'mysterious' Dragon Ball Xenoverse character is you

I should have known this all along, but I was holding out hope that it would actually be a new character. That "mysterious character" in Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a custom creation. So, in essence, it's "you." You'll be able t...more

This Super Smash Bros. 3DS XL is droolworthy

Gaze upon that glory above. It's beautiful, isn't it? I have always been reluctant to upgrade to a 3DS XL, but this might just be what kicks it over the edge. Nintendo of Europe announced this bundle on its Twitter earlier. This handheld comes with a digital copy of Super Smash Bros., so players can get their Nintendo fight on and silently let everybody around them know it.more
