Tekken Tag Tournament 2 | Review

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Jason Fayta

Version tested:  PlayStation 3

Tekken returns to tag after a 12 year hiatus from consoles with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (hereafter TTT2), the sequel to, that’s right, Tekken Tag Tournament. 12 years is a long time to wait for a proper follow-up to one of the more popular entries in the venerable Tekken series; does Namco Bandai drop the Tekken Ball or is TTT2 the new King of the Iron Fist?

TTT2 is the eighth main installment in the Tekken series and it is a non-canon entry, like the original Tekken Tag Tournament. TTT2 embraces its dream match premise, and in turn the roster has ballooned to a whopping 59 characters, with six of those available at a later date as free downloadable content. And if you’re wondering, Gon from Tekken 3 is not one of those 59 fighters; you’ll have to make do with Alex if you’re all about fighting dinosaurs.Read More

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Seung Lee

One of 2011’s best (and goofiest) games, Saints Row: The Third, is receiving a compilation disc aptly named, Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package. Fans of the game from the states can expect it to hit stores on November 6, while international fans will see it on November 9. As the title implies, all of the DLC that’s ever been released for Saints Row: The Third will be on the disc (no vouchers, if you were worried about that).

Launch Trailer Surfaces For Angry Birds Trilogy

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Angry Birds has no end. The ever popular game that made its’ debut on mobile phones is now making its’ way to consoles as well.

The Angry Birds Trilogy combines original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds: Rio all into one disc. Which is great because that means we won’t have to pay for that DLC.

Even though the trailer states the games is available now, it actually doesn’t release until tomorrow September 25th, in North America and September 28th in Europe.


The Walking Dead Coming To Retail

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Joshua Rust

First off, if you haven’t been watching The Walking Dead TV show – you have been missing out. I can’t wait for the third season to start.

But, onto the game now. Telltale has announced that its’ amazing episodic game, that is up to the third of five episodes at the moment, will be coming to retail on December 4th in North America. This is a great move by Telltale as some gamers still haven’t bought in to the whole “buy online” strategy.

So to me this means that the people who are downloading the episodes online will see them released within the next couple of months.

What format do you all prefer? Disc or download? Sound off in the comments below!



Nintendo Wii U is Region Locked

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Jason Bassett

Oh, Nintendo. Why do you go and make something awesome and then decide to pull things like this. If you have been catching up on the latest and greatest news on the Nintendo Wii U, then you will know that Famitsu just put out an article regarding the Wii U.

They have reported that Nintendo’s newest addition to your living room not feature the ability to play games outside of the US and Canada. So, if you want to play your Nintendo Wii U games from Japan, you’ll need to buy a Japanese Wii U in order to play them. This is very typical Nintendo as both the original Wii and the Nintendo 3DS are all region locked.

If you’re an avid collector of European or Japanese games, then I’m sure you’re just as disappointed as I am with this development.

Nintendo Wii U releases on November 18th, 2012 here in the States and will start at $299.99.
