Eurogamer Technical Comparison of Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 Versions of Marvel vs Capcom 3

If you have been wondering what the graphical differences between the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of Marvel vs Capcom 3 are, you are in for a treat!  Eurogamer has put together a rather exhaustive comparison of the two versions, with as much jargon as you can handle.

They do find that the Playstation 3 version has a bit more framerate drops, but otherwise both versions are very close to identical.  The comparison has a few high def videos to show both games side by side to support their findings. 

Check out the full article here.

Arc System Works Confirms New BlazBlue to Eurogamer

About a week ago, news broke via a fan translation of a conference held at World Games Cup that there will be a new Guilty Gear at some point. Apparently, that's not the only thing Arc System Works is up to -- they're also working on a new BlazBlue game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, according to a report by Eurogamer.

"We'd get booed if it doesn't release," BlazBlue director Toshimichi Mori told Eurogamer. "So that means yes. We're not saying when, but it will be coming out."

Beyond telling Eurogamer that a new BlazBlue is in the works, there's no information beyond that, unfortunately. Guess we'll just have to wait until.. well, until they're ready to talk about it.

Grooving with Dormammu by novriltataki

novriltataki combined two things near and dear to my heart -- Dormammu and Jet Set Radio Future -- to create what I'm going to go ahead and call video of the month, if not video of the year. The track combines samples of Dormammu talking his mess over Jet Set Radio Future's "Like It Like This, Like That". You should do yourself a favor and watch this.

Shout outs to DJ Dormammu.

Mortal Kombat: Dan "Toasty" Forden Makes His Triumphant Return

Remember when you'd score several uppercuts in the older Mortal Kombat games and Dan Forden from Midway (now NetherRealm) would pop out and say "toasty!"? For those of you that do, you were probably wondering whether or not he'd make his little cameo appearance in Mortal Kombat 9, considering it's such a return to form. Well, here's your answer, straight from the MK demo:

MVC3: The Zero Glitch by Desk

Up until now, most of the MVC3 glitches have generally been all fun and games, but this one is actually game breaking. Desk just uploaded a video demostrating that in Sougenmu (Shadow Mode) when you snap back the opponent with Zero's shadow, while thier assist on screen, the opponent wont come back on screen at all. From here of course, the match is over since you can just run the clock. Check out the video below and be sure to subscribe to Desk's YouTube Channel for more videos.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 Online Play: Baffling Design Choices and Omissions

Marvel vs Capcom 3 is an amazing game.  The gameplay is everything I hoped it would be. It’s fast, fun and full of great characters with many unique playstyles.  It's a bit broken, but that's part of its charm.

Its got a lot going for it, but the online component of the game is pretty baffling.  I can understand why there is no spectator mode, so I’m not going to spend time lamenting about that here.  I don’t like it, but I can understand it.  For a game as fast as this one, lag is a huge concern.  It’s even more so than Super Street Fighter 4, as Super is a slower-paced game by comparison.  I'm also not going to mention the near-broken state of finding ranked matches outside of using fight request.  I'm hopeful that Capcom will patch this.  These two issues have been beat to death elsewhere, so we're not going to touch on those here.

But there are other design choices and omissions that just make no sense.

Mortal Kombat Demo Impressions from Avoiding The Puddle

Aris over at Avoiding the Puddle put together a solid video going over the new Mortal Kombat demo. This is a good video because its someone who actually knows about fighting games going over the mechanics. Both Aris and I have been talking about the game recently and a lot of the gameplay design decisions seem pretty odd to both of us. That said, Mortal Kombat has never been like any other fighter out there for the most part so we'll just have to see how all this pans out in the final build.

Either way, check out the video below when you have about 20 minutes to spare and keep an eye on Avoiding the Puddle as Aris has more impression videos planned for the very near future.

Mortal Kombat Demo - The Kombat Kontinues Teaser Trailer

I saw this a little earlier today on a live stream of the demo and I gotta' say it got me pretty hype for the game. This is the newest trailer for Mortal Kombat which shows a bunch of combos, fatalities and more footage of Kratos. I don't have the demo myself but I think it plays after you complete a handful of fights or something. Anyway, be warned, it's just as awesome as it is gruesome!

Thanks to  for the upload!
