If you’re a fan of Street Fighter first, then also Tekken, or just interested in using newer characters to the Street Fighter universe, then you were probably pretty excited for Street Fighter X Tekken. The game takes some of the most popular characters from both franchises and puts them all in a two-on-two fighting game. It’s like Tekken Tag that also features Street Fighter characters.

The Third Street Saints are no longer just a gang, they’re a franchise. They have an energy drink, a movie deal, and groups of fans wanting to take photos and get autographs.
The Saints have also expanded from Stillwater to Steelport, and in doing so have me some opposition for control from a criminal organization called The Syndicate.
After a flight gone very bad you decide it’s time to get rid of The Syndicate and take Steelport for the Saints.
In Uncharted 3 Nathan Drake is looking for the answer to what exactly Sir Francis Drake was doing during a stretch in his voyage that seems to have been hidden.
Spoiler alert, you realize it’s a city rumored to be “the Atlantis of the sands”, and to simplify it as much as the producers of the game have: it’s up to you to find it before the villains of the story.
Batman has been a pop culture icon for a LONG time. Like most of the other comic book heroes that exist, he hasn’t had the best video games. That was until 2009′s Batman: Arkham Asylum, which was a great game about Batman taking the prison back from the inmates.
Arkham City is an entire neighborhood of Gotham that has been walled off and turned into a prison. In the beginning of the game, Hugo Strange, who knows Batman is Bruce Wayne, sticks Bruce Wayne into Arkham City. It’s up to you to become Batman, find out what a mysterious plan called “Protocol 10″ is, and stop stop Strange from enacting it.
In a story that includes more villains than Arkham Asylum and story missions for Catwoman, does Arkham City “Dark Knight”(surpass) Arkham Asylum?
Gears of War 3 is Epic’s, and one of Microsoft’s most successful franchises. From a fiscal standpoint, closing the book on the franchise is a terrible idea. But, maybe Cliff Bleszinski and the crew at Epic would rather focus on something new and different.
In Gears of War 3 you play as one of 8 playable characters, due to the addition of 4-player co-op. When you’re player one, you are Marcus Fenix (the main hulking bro), or Augustus Cole (the “WHOOO!” bro). You’re mostly Marcus, because this is his story.
The original Crysis was a PC only game that required a beast of a set-up to play, and an even beastlier rig to play at its full potential. Crytek, the makers of the franchise, seem to realize that a lot of people playing this on consoles probably didn’t have the opportunity to play the first Crysis.
In Crysis 2 you play as Alcatraz, a United States Marine whose squad is ambushed by the aliens attacking New York City, and is then saved by the nanosuit wearing Prophet. Prophet tells you that he’s infected with the alien plague and it’s your time to wear the suit, then he shoots himself in the head to break the link with the suit so you can wear it.
Once you’re wearing the nanosuit the rest of the game is people trying to kill you because they think you’re Prophet, nanosuit diagnostics, protecting the fleeing civilians of New York City, and people trying to steal the suit for themselves. You also fight a lot of aliens along the way.
Yeah, wow, this is EXTREMELY late, but oh well. You could probably chalk this up as one of the latest year-end lists ever.
This is where I would normally recap the video in text, but you’re going to have to watch it. I’m not going to spoil it here.

Is in another castle…haha, I kill me. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been on my board of things to review for a long time, and while I have played enough of it, I just never got around to writing a review for it. That’s kind of void now anyway. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a great game, but as of last week it’s not much more than a glorified demo. If you don’t have it yet and you can’t wait until November, you can pick it up for less than $35 new, but you’re probably better off renting it and getting your fix over a weekend.
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 November 15th.
The latest Mortal Kombat, number 9 in the series if you’re counting, takes us back to the early days of the franchise and is essentially a reboot. All of the characters in this Mortal Kombat are from the first three games (except maybe Ermac and Noob Saibot, I played a lot of the first 3 Mortal Kombats and I don’t remember them).
In the story Raiden sees Shao Kahn defeating him and taking over Earthrealm, but it was just a vision. It’s actually the beginning of the Mortal Kombat tournament and Raiden is determined to make sure that his vision doesn’t come true.
