Street Fighter IV Boss Screens

I don’t care if Chun Li is a hermaphrodite. Street Fighter IV looks HOT! It looks like devs are finally giving video games a different look. What started out as “Toon” shading, reached it’s pinnacle with The Legend of Zelda Windwaker, is now being re-invented daily on these “Next-Gen” systems. Joining the ranks of Okami, Dragon Ball Z, the newly announced Prince of Persia restart, Street Fighter IV seems to be a graphical showpiece.

Some may mistakenly call the graphics simple, but I call it EYE candy. I’mma shut up now because this entry is all about the pix. Feast.

In order of Street Fighter ll appearance:

My main my mizzle, Iron Mike… errrrm Balrog!

Maybe heads will start picking him!

Wolverine’s cousin from another mother! Vega

NOICE!!!!

Now to one of my favorite characters to use: TIGER! TIGER! TIGER UPPERCUT! Sagat!

Splendid!

Now the Man. The Cheasyness. Balr.. Veg.. I mean Iron M.Bison!!!

That’s just too much goodness! Keep checking back for more news on Capcom’s next installment to the franchise.

Dave out!

Prince of Persia is Back!

Our boy is back! Look at the “Fresh” Prince in these ill screens from French Mag Joypad. It looks as if this title will be a “restart” for the series. With the story having nothing to do with Last-Gen’s trilogy. Based on the French Translation done by Eurogamer, the story is based on “The tales of the Thousand and One Nights” in lieu of the Arabian Nights of the past games.

One thing I do know, or I would pray for is that it’s nothing like Assassin’s Creed. The game play in AC took awhile to get used to and it was downright boring. I’m glad that the prince is back and judging by these screens he’s coming with a nice visual flair.

Thems Rabbids are back and guess what…

Looks like those lovable(and demented) Rabbids are going at it for another round of mini game silliness on the Wii. I will admit, of all the mini games available for the Wii, Rayman Ravng Rabbids stands out as one of the best of them. And Ubisoft knows this as they followed the game with a sequel. So far no real solid news has been made available yet, but one can already figure out whats in store for the third game. Just watch the trailer and see what happens when a Rabbid discovers a Wii Balance board! It’s pretty funny stuff in the teaser. Good to see other devs taking note of the peripheral!

GTA: IV – A perfect 10?

Yes folks. The date is upon us. The monumental undertaking that is the next installment of Grand Theft Auto will be released onto the hordes of the unsuspecting public. Let the good times roll…

What is not only led by a media blitz that may just outdo the Halo3 launch, but we are given what IGN ranks a perfect 10. (As in received a 10 out of 10 in every category) Now, don’t call me a pessimist, but what a damn minute. Are you telling me this game has no major flaws? I better experience about 30hrs of non stop ecstasy when I’m playing this thing. (30hrs? God damn! no wonder I’ve never finished any of these games)

But this one is said to have the best story, the best voice acting, the best controls, the best music, the best hot coffee… um maybe not. But you know our boyz at Rockstar won’t disappoint. There will be some reference to Hot Coffee in the game. There just has to be.

I’m sorta excited. For a long time now, I’ve wanted to play a game set in “realistic” New York City. This will be as close as I can get. Even thou it’s just based on the city, I feel comfortable that native New Yorkers will be able to find some real life hot spots.

What i’m not looking forward to is the protests of all these people blaming teen (child) violence on video games. Now with “better controls” the argument is being made that our youth are living the fantasy that it’s ok to walk up and shoot people.

I’m just waiting for the backlash from this one folks. It’s sad that as a medium video games get so much flak. Movies have been showing endless violence since the beginning of that medium. Some of our all time favorite television shows have prominently featured violence, but when it comes to playing a game, it all of a sudden brainwashes our youth. (Damn subliminal messages, I will not shoot everyone I see!!! No you can’t make me! Arrgggh) I shouldn’t poke fun at it, but its sorta sad to think that these people use that as an argument. Every one of the GTA series has had multiple movie references.

Why don’t people run down Al Pacino and egg him for playing the role of one of the most looked up to “fictional” gangsters? Why doesn’t Arnold, who may be the biggest hypocrite in the history of mankind, give back every cent he’s ever made from his movies? How come people don’t believe they can be a one man army and shoot thousands of enemies after watching his movies? I dunno.

Either way, it’s time to step into the shoes of Nico and live the American Dream.

p.s. when was the last time you saw you saw an explosion in real life? Anyone?

Big up Mavado. Gangsta for life!

Welcome back to Silent Hill

It’s been real quiet on the Silent Hill front as of late. Well this september gamers will get to take the trip back to that freaky as all hell town in the upcoming game Silent Hill: Homecoming, dropping on the x360 and ps3. In this version players will take the role of a 22 year old war veteran named Alex Shepherd returning home to find his lost brother. As you can see from some of the pics, you can expect the same foggy, creepy, dirty ,rusty settings and themes. Now although it looks cool im starting to wonder if it’s falling in the “samey syndrome”. This is technically the 6th game in the series (counting the psp version) and it all of it looks just like the last version played. And I know it takes place in the same town but how many times can one explore Silent Hill? They say this version is a reboot of the franchise but it seems more like another sequel, you wanna see a reboot of a series i suggest playing Resident evil 0,1-3 and then play 4…that’s a reboot folks! I’ll def’ play this version and will hopefully be surprised at what’s instore, but from what i’ve seen so far it looks like another creepy regular trip to good ol’ Silent hill. Below you can peep some new videos from gamesradar.com
