Review: Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (PS3 & PS Vita)

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, which came out for the PS3 and 360 back in November and has been recently rereleased for the PS Vita, is one of the most fun fighting games out there. It is your typical 2D fighter with a huge cast of Marvel and Capcom characters, many (/most) poorly and hilariously voice-acted, pitted against each other in 3-on-3 matches. It isn’t precisely Marvel vs. Capcom; you could make a team of Ghost Rider, Ryu, and Chris Redfield, or an Avengers-themed team of the Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man, or a Capcom Devil Must Cry supergroup of Dante, Trish, and Virgil — really, it’s up to your imagination (and the character roster which is capped at 50). The characters range from the obviously-well known (Marvel’s Spiderman and Capcom’s Ryu) to the horribly obscure (like Marvel’s Rocket Raccoon and Capcom’s Arthur). Read the rest of this entry »

Motorstorm RC

Motorstorm: RC is a racing game that is currently free for download on the PS Vita (though you have to endure starting out in a Scion iQ…) and is one of the best racing games I’ve played in a long time.

New Xbox dashboard a-comin’

The “Metro” update is set to hit, and with it, we’re looking at something similar to the Windows mobile OS combined with PS3’s own great setup.

Voice integration sounds and looks cool but I don’t have a kinect so, whatever. Roaming profile sounds great, as I tend to occasionally roam without a profile, so that’ll solve that.

To be honest, all I really use my Xbox for is Netflix and video games (ie SKYRIM). Streaming movies/TV from my laptop has never worked well (always very laggy, a common problem, and the Box has a tendency to fuck with your media so you cease being the “owner” in Windows and have to reset ownership of your stuff… with a decent sized music collection, that’s a bitch), so I have my PS3 for that and Blu-rays (and sometimes, Netflix). Adding YouTube is a great idea, but including a browser (like the Wii and PS3) would be a smart move.

All in all, though, it does look smoother, so I look forward to that. Might be a review in the pipes.
