Get your box off with Real Boxing on Vita

The mobile title Real Boxing is coming to PlayStation Vita next month, August 27. Its press release boasts it is the, "first console-style boxing simulation for the PlayStation Vita" and has newly featured, "console-style multiplayer." This amuses me to no end because it's a mobile game being ported to a handheld.

Is it just me, or do all those right and left hooks look really weird? Like spaghetti elbows as the shoulder dislocates itself for each punch. See, someone was clearly onto a neat idea early in development. I think this was meant to be a Stretch Armstrong game. It was to be his triumphant comeback, like Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler.

Alas, while I would've preferred Unreal Boxing -- as in some sort of exaggerated and comical fighting game, not just an Unreal engine powered one -- I know this sort of thing has its audience. It's been a while since Fight Night. Even if this reminds me a bit more of The Fight: Lights Out. Oh well. It's $10 and could be fun.

EVO's best moments are often found off-screen

As someone who watches EVO but hasn't yet and will likely never attend the fighting game tournament in person, I adore Richard Li's videos -- they truly bring out the human element of the competition. It occasionally comes t...more

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
