We had a bit of a hard week here in the land of ESH. Both NinJa and Panda were under the weather and we'd rather walk barefoot over hot coals in August in Arizona than put out a crappy show. So what does that mean for you?
It'd be fair to say that Rayman has been standing in the shadows of those furry bastards known as the Rabbids since he invited them into his life. Since then little had been seen of the armless and legless protagonist who first won our hearts in the 1990s. Fortunately our hero from the Sea of Lums has prepared himself for a major comeback, in the form of the four-player co-op adventure Rayman Origins.
Long lines are an inevitable reality at an event like E3. With some of the most exciting and innovative hardware and software to be seen there were several at the show this year. One of the longest I waited in was for the Playstation Vita where, ironically in my opinion, several people were playing with their 3DS while they waited. The promise of the Vita, much like it’s predecessor, is the ability to have what feels like a current generation console as a handheld. It also promises innovation and some great new games. From what they’ve shown so far, do these seem like promises they can keep?
When your Dad's the Devil himself, you've got a lot to live up to. Although it's turned his world upside down, teenager Rin Okumura hasn't let it get to him. He's a half demon who's determined to become a powerful exorcist and, well, check out the screencap above.
At E3 this year the Capcom section the majority of the buzz was on the upcoming franchise-clashing Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom is no stranger to battling it out with other franchises (i.e.: SNK, Marvel, Tatsunoko), but for the first time in fighting game history we are given one of the very few ultimate what-if scenarios within the gaming realm. (The other, of course, is Street Fighter versus Mortal Kombat, though that still seems unlikely to happen.)
