Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 brings a sizeable roster of the most recognisable characters from both iconic franchises into a 3 vs 3 battle to save the universe from the hunger of Galactus!
Before I go into the nitty gritty of this review I will say I am a massive fan of both Marvel and Capcom. The series of Vs titles released by Capcom over the years has been relatively very good, it has been built on the stable and reliable rules of Capcom's own Street fighter brand of beat em up. Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 has a huge range of fighters to choose from when creating your team of galaxy saviours (or destroyers), these characters vary from the likes of Captain America to Ryu and then to the obscure which includes Phoenix Wright to Dormammu.
It was 6 years ago ....... 6 YEARS since the dark and twisted take on the Apocalypse graced our consoles and let us control none other that War himself. The horseman was set up and left to take the fall for bringing on the Apocalypse early and then set out of a quest to clear his name and bring the culprits to justice. Last year saw the remastered edition of Darksiders 2 which was titled the Deathinitive Edition, now the time has come for us to once again take control of another take on the Christian Mythology take on the end of days.
Available to buy directly from theMicrosoft Store for £15.99 this is a steal of a price, the game is closely compared to a Zelda type adventure and will not have players bored with the fantastic character design or rich and vibrant lore.
If all goes well, I hope that the green light will be given for Darksiders 3 and we can get this series back on track.
The fantastic team at Nordic Games are once again putting the Darksiders IP to great use and giving the public another chance to revisit the original Darksiders. Though this time the game will be on Xbox One and all other current generation platforms, in the new and improved Warmastered Edition.
You can imagine this new edition is similar to the Deathinitive Edition of Darksiders 2 that was released at the tail end of last year. Although the game was a little bit hit and miss with the frame rates at certain times, the remaster of Darksiders 2 was a welcome edition to the modern console generation. The game plays similar to a Legend of Zelda game where players navigate the world to find dungeons and clear them to obtain powerful artefacts. The game is remembered fondly in my memory and I can not wait to get my hands on this gem once again.
Deadlight originally came out in 2012 for the Xbox 360, now after 4 years Tequila Works have released the director’s cut. The new version of the game includes full 1080p, enhanced controls, improved animations and a new ‘Nightmare’ difficulty mode.
In news that's sure to be of interest to Xbox One owners awaiting news on the games to be made available through Xbox 360 backwards compatibility, EA's Chief Operating Officer Peter Moore has told IGN in an interview that EA has little interest in producing HD remakes of titles from the last generation.
In a piece written by Mitch Dyer, Moore said “It feels like pushing stuff out because you’ve run out of ideas.”, adding that "...because of who we are, and this broad portfolio of intellectual property... you add all that together, I don’t know where we find the time to do remakes.".
