So there’s this game called Minecraft out, ok? And it’s not really a game as much as it is a sandbox with building blocks that allow you to do some wondrous things! The designer also took the words “building blocks” a bit too literally as you can see by the pic of the pink piggy, but don’t let that deter you, you’ll quickly grow to love the 3D throwback to 8-bit gaming!

The game is set to be sold for 20$ when it gets officially release, until then you can get it for the paltry sum of 10$ while it’s still in beta! Considering how many hours you’ll surely sink into this squarish gem it’ll be hard for you to find a better bang for your buck.

My good friend Hugo’s at it again! Being a long-time Devil May Cry fan, Hugo was especially intrigued by the recent reboot Capcom announed at the Tokyo Game Show.

Apparently, the new title goes by “DMC” only and features what seems to be a younger, less white-haired, Dante doing his demon killing thing.

Hugo, unable to resist, decided to show the new Dante how he understands in the only way a talented artist can. Scroll down for full-sized image but also make sure to check out his blog post on the subject at

Yesterday I played the new Scott Pilgrim vs The World Game with my brothers and I totally fell in love with Paul Robertson‘s sprite work.

I was so taken aback by it in fact that I had the uncontrollable urge to do some sprite work myself for the first time in years.

The end result is Chun Li, Ryu, Ken, and Guile redrawn with Paul Robertson’s trademark art style.

Tekken, Dead or Alive, and Virtua Fighter are all in pretty much the same category to me. They are fighting games that I haven’t spent any real amount of time learning, but I do enjoy some button-mashing fun with friends on occasion.

So it’s true, I’m not much of a Tekken player. In fact, before my recent purchase of Tekken 6, the last Tekken I played was Tekken Tag Tournament more than 10 years ago. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t excited by the Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter announcement!

Ah the wonderful world of Collectible Card Games.

I’ve played many over the years, and here are my personal top 5.

Please note that I sadly haven’t played every CCG out there, but those I’ve heard good things about have an honorable mention at the end.

With the recent announcement of Street Fighter 3 making a comeback on current gen systems, and the indifference some of my  Street Fighter 4 playing friends have towards that announcement, I decided it was time I make this list and tell the world once and for all where I stand (and where they should) on the topic of the best Capcom fighting games ever!

I narrowed it down to the best 10 fighting games and limited myself to one title per series just so Street Fighter 3 doesn’t dominate the chart on its own. Buckle your seat-belts:

I was talking with a couple of friends the other day when a thought hit me: In Kick-Ass, an awesome  movie based on a non DC Universe comic book license, both Batman and Superman are mentioned. It got me thinking, what are the rules governing the mentioning of other trademarks within movies and TV shows? Could the next Superman movie show Clark Kent wearing Spider-Man underwear? Does it depend on whether or not Marvel would object to that or is there actually well established rules and regulations regarding this?

After a few weeks of either not liking the shop contest of the week (another ad placement?) or just not having the time, I’m back in business with a new entry!

Hope you like this one as I actually am a big fan of Mister Hung. If not of this music, then at least of his name!

Let me know what you think:

With the recent rumor that Marvel vs Capcom 3 is just around the corner, I feel it is my solemn duty to share with the world my humble roster request. Since the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 development team apparently said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters, I’ll assume that means the roster will be somewhere around the 50 character mark since it’s close to MvC2’s 56. Therefore I will limit my request 25 per company.
