Virtua Fighter 5 on the 360 looking kinda sorta OK

If a recent Games Rader hands-on preview of the Xbox 360 version of Virtua Fighter 5 is to be believed, the game is looking better than it ever has. Writer Christian Nutt (har har) raved about his time with the game, saying it looked as good, if not better, than the already released PlayStation 3 game.

Today, Sega released a few new screens of the game and well, it looks ... not that bad. It doesn't look that great either, so what's up?

This could be a case of poor screen grabs, or maybe these are screens taken from an early build of the game. I'm willing to withhold early judgement, but the PlayStation 3 version Virtua Fighter 5 was an early showcase of the graphical power of Sony's system; I guess I expected to be more impressed.

So what do you guys think? Looking better or worse? And based on what you know about the game (and what you're seeing here), are there any Xbox 360 owners who are busting open their piggy bank to pre-order Virtua Fighter 5?

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
