Marvel Vs Capcom 4 Rumors Heat Up Ahead of PlayStation Experience

Posted on November 27, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Are you ready to be TAKEN FOR A RIDE? Rumours are circulating on the popular video game forum NeoGaf that Capcom and Sony may have entered into an exclusivity for another fighting game. The heroes & villains of Marvel Entertainment might be preparing to face off against Capcom’s large roster of characters in Marvel Vs Capcom 4– if this rumour is true.

A set of three images appeared thanks to a user named Ryce who claims that they are part of a reveal at the PlayStation Experience set to take place in California next weekend from Dec 3rd through 4th.

Here are the teaser images that Ryce posted:

These screen-grabs are supposedly from either a teaser trailer or a set of teaser images created to promote the upcoming fighter. Does the artwork on display remind you of anything? Almost all of it is taken from previous promotional art or trailers for both Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 or the 2001 classic Marvel Vs Capcom 2. Aside from the re-use of iconic artwork the only new element in these screen-grabs is the “4” – signifying the fourth major title in the franchise.

Long time Fighting Game Community member and content creator Maximillian Dood, who has had official partnerships with Capcom, created a rather lengthy video giving his opinion on the whole thing. Max doesn’t feel that the “4” images (reprocessed above) are not legitimate and that the proportions of the image are out of wack.

Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and digital copies of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 / Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 were pulled from the PlayStation Network nearly two years ago, in mid December 2013. Users who already purchased MVC2 are still able to download copies onto their systems but prior to it’s 2009 re-release on PSN it was locked to the Xbox (original) and PlayStation 2 / Dreamcast.

What do you think about the possibility of MVC4 coming to PS4?



Spending An Evening At San Francisco’s Brewcade

Posted on December 3, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Videogames and alcohol can sometimes be great partners together – I spent many nights hanging out with friends drinking vodka coolers and playing Halo 3 back in University. San Francisco’s Brewcade takes this synergy of videogames and booze and adds an arcade twist. With an plethora of different brews and a whole lot of older coin-operated machines it certainly had the allure of reliving childhood days putting quarters into a machine with the added charisma bonus only a small drink can provide.Read More


Con Bravo: Gaming Tournament & Free Play Impressions

Posted on July 30, 2012 by Broken Joysticks

During the last weekend we at Broken Joysticks got the opportunity to visit Con bravo down in the Hamilton Ontario area as our readership is already aware – and let me give a shout out saying it was one of the best con experiences that we have ever covered. Meeting the Special Guests, the con goers themselves, and the staff was nothing short of epic amounts of fun – and we’ve made a note to put this down as one of our favoured cons for the future.

While the big coverage will be coming out as the week goes on, including interviews with Spoony, Doug, and others from Channel Awesome, we’d like to make a special note on something that we usually find more then a little mundane that we thought was exceptionally well done at this con – the gaming.Read More


Marvel Vs Capcom Goes Back In Time With MVC: Origins

Posted on July 5, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Get ready to restart the Clash of Heroes with the release of Marvel Vs Capcom: Origins for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this week. Origins is actually a compilation title comprised of Marvel Super Hereos and MVC Clash of Super Heroes. This is the first time that both of either of these titles have been released digitally, and I am sure it has been many years since a lot of games have thought about them outside of arcades filled with 90’s cabinets.

It has been many years since I’ve played the original Marvel Vs Capcom. The biggest memory it brings to life is sitting in a pizzaera with my fiancée (8 years going strong) battling over slices of Pizza. To be honest we’re pretty even, and maybe with the release or Origins we’ll take the battle into the online space over Xbox Live or the PSN.

MVC Origins will retail for 1200 MSP ($15 usd) when it releases this fall.
