Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter still looks amazing

There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter. That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.   more

First brief look at Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden

Uh, ew: Ermac's Mortal Kombat Fatality is disgusting and visceral

Congratulations, Mortal Kombat X. I didn't expect to be briefly surprised and grossed out by a Fatality this side of Y2K and JNCO jeans, but you've done it. This is pretty gnarly. Look at all that viscera. I'm calling PETIO (people for the ethical treatment of inner organs: let's keep our insides inside). It's even better in enormous GIF form.   more

Killer Instinct is getting a multi-faced golem and a 'Ghost Girl'

From a cosmetic perspective, I'm digging this new round of Killer Instinct characters. While the trailer is focused on next week's Aganos, a golem who looks more like a boss than a combatant, there's also a tease at the end for a character everyone seems to be calling "Ghost Girl." I hope that name sticks. Videogames can and should be weird like that sometimes.   more

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.   more

Mortal Kombat X introduces online factions and brings back the Challenge Tower

Two more months. Just two more months. That's what I have to keep telling myself while agonizing over the release of Mortal Kombat X.
