THQ announced that reigning UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been named the cover athlete for UFC Undisputed 3, the next game in series. Fans will know that "The Spider" recently defeated top contender Yushin Okami at UFC Rio in August to retain his middleweight championship. He currently holds both the longest winning streak and longest title defense streak in UFC history.

His cover "win" came from fans, as THQ let fans vote online for one of five current UFC champions for the cover: Silva, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones or UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. THQ says that morre than 110,000 votes were sent in.

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
