Good news/Bad news: Tatsunoko Vs Capcom NYC event update

3:00 AM on 01.17.2010 // Jonathan Holmes

How about the bad news first? I was wrong and community member The Average Guy was right; Capcom and Nintendo wont be selling Tatsunoko Vs Capcom at the launch party on Jan 23rd at the Nintendo World Store in NYC. I guess that makes it more of a pre-launch party. How nervy.

The good news is, Capcom will be giving plenty of copies of the game away for free, so you can still try to get it early. The difference is, you'll need luck, not money, to make that happen. That's even better, right? You can try to get the game for free, but keep your pre-order in place just in case, and you've got nothing to lose. Personally, I'm just as excited for the event as ever. Then again, I'm hopefully going to have a review copy of the game in my hands before the 23rd anyway.

OK, enough passive aggressive smug-guy gaming journalist bragging, hit the jump for the latest press release for the event.

On Saturday, Jan. 23, the Big Apple will experience a big brawl, when the Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars launch event takes over the Nintendo World store!

Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, winner of the prestigious Game Critics Award for “Best Fighting Game” at E3 2009, is one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2010, and launches on Tuesday, January 26. Hundreds of fighting game and Wii fans are expected to attend this event, where they’ll get hands-on with the game early and get to meet the legendary producer Ryota Niitsuma! They will also enjoy:

* A Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars competitions, with exclusive prizes
* Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars Game Demos
* An autograph signing with legendary Capcom game producer Ryota Niitsuma
* Exciting giveaways
* And lots more!

I don't know what's been going on, but I actually feel like I have to fight with the formatting of the blog editor now to get it right. Hope it'll settle down soon.

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.
