This past week has been a pretty important for console gamers everywhere–
1) Marvel vs. Capcom 3 released February 15, which I still have not gotten my anxious fingers on yet, but with a hyper combo like Deadpool’s I am simply wetting my pants sitting here typing and thinking about it. Seriously, what a great mishmash of characters this time around. (And if you’ve been reading this blog since our conception last August, you may remember MegaWoman raved about X-23’s appearance in the game)
(Hell yeah he just beat you down with his life bar and health bar)
2) Dead Island was announced the very next day (Feb. 16), which even prompted my non-video-gaming friends to send me the trailer, oohing and aahing. I mean it, 5 people sent me the trailer in one day. Either I resemble a zombie in the day-to-day or they associate me with zombie games or… T_T Regardless of what reasoning they harbored in their minds as they posted and forward the video to me in Facebook and Gmail, the trailer definitely has a cinematic (when I say cinematic I mean there’s a tinge of emotion) feel, and though I think I will check out the game when it comes out, I don’t know if I want to delve into yet ANOTHER zombie venture. Perhaps it’s because I currently feel like a zombie and have no desire for anything zombie-related. Temporary bias.
Also, any blog post titled “Game on”, in actual reference to games, needs to be followed by That “The Guild” video, as below. You can thank/hate me later when you find yourself humming this song until 5pm.
