Lucha Fury paints bleak picture of henchman life


9:00 AM on 06.20.2011



If you've ever wondered what all of the henchman from beat 'em up games do on their time off, here's you answer: nurse their wounds and cry into shot glasses of tequila.

This is illustrated nicely in the trailer for the upcoming Lucha Fury, a four-player cooperative beat 'em up headed to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC this year. It's being developed by Punchers Impact, whose last game was Crasher, a vehicle combat game for the PC.

Interestingly, this may possibly be Puncher Impact's last title. Its owner, Mindscape, is rumored to have shut down the French studio earlier this year. Given that Lucha Fury's development is likely already complete, this shouldn't affect its release, but I'm checking in on that just to be sure. Because I know how worried you are, of course.

Somehow, these four will save the world in Lucha Fury

It's a motley crew, to be certain. But if anybody can save the world from chicken-oriented doom, I don't see any reason why it can't be four energy drink guzzling luchadores. Here you'll meet the heroes of the Xbox Live Arca...more

This Far Cry 4 trailer is all about the elephants

Even when Far Cry 4 was officially nothing more than message-board rumors, I was all about the elephants. It's nice to see Ubisoft give the people want they want, then, by putting out a trailer that's devoted to these animal...more
