  • Galactus Revealed as Playable in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

    Play as the Devourer of Worldsin Ultimate MVC3

    I always wished there was some way to play as the boss, seeing as they are the cheapest of the cheap and have all the cool abilities. Aside from the instance of playing as Apocalypse in X-men vs Street Fighter on the PS1, there really was no chance of you ever taking the reigns of the other bosses like Abyss in Marvel vs Capcom 2...until now.

    Thanks tosome released news on Joystiq, Ulitmate Marvel vs Capcom 3 will allow us to control the ever-so-cheap Galactus. Capcom's strategy manager, Seth Killian, revealed at New York Comic Con that "the Devourer of Worlds" (Galactus) will definitely be playable in his own little mode.

    Since he will be in his own mode and not as a regular selection character, I'm to believe that his mode could be basically be you taking control of Galactus and destroying wave after wave of characters before your replenishing life bar is depleted.

  • Keeping Your Controllers Clean.

    Random Thoughts about Avoiding a Dirty, Greasy, and/or Messy Controller.

    So on Speak Up article on Kotaku about dirty controllers it came to my attention that over the years of gaming since I was a young kid that I've been always struggling with the problem about messed up and greasy controllers. We, as a gaming society, tend to take our consoles' controllers for granted and do abusive things to them. We get dust on them, weunknowinglycough on them when we had a sick day from work/school, we'd toss them out our window and get them stuck in a tree because someone on Marvel vs Capcom 3 decided to be the cheapest jerk in the world by using Sentinel-Hulk-Magneto fourteen times in a row. In result, they begin to malfunction and we have to buy another controller or send it in for repairs.

    So, in a gesture of proper controller care, I decided to share some tips on how to take care of your controller so malfunctioning rarely or never occurs in your gaming life.

    1. Use electronic cleaning wipes.
    Why? Because it makes sense. By wiping that grease from your lunchs Double-Double Animal Style off your Active Reload, it is less likely your controller is going to slip out of your hands and break on the ground during an intense round in Horde Mode in GOW3.

    2. Avoid eating something that leaves dusts while you play with your controller.
    Cheetos are a common suspect in this case. Cheeto dust leave behind a greasy film on your controller and the dust can likely get into the hard to clean ridges of your controller and probably inside it as well. If you must eat cheetos while mowing down noobs online, have a pile of wet naps at your side at all times. You'll thank me later.

    3. When angry, don't take it out on your controller.
    From a personal standpoint, it is best to just not do it. Unless you are like me and want to climb an aging orange tree to fetch your Xbox controller. Your controller didn't do anything wrong, so why damage it?

    So those are my tips on taking care of your controller. There are many other tips out there like them, but these are the ones I've come across a lot in my gaming life. And if you play as many games as I do, they are tips to live by.

  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 coming soon!

    ComicCon News: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced!

    In released news from San Diego ComicCon, Capcom has announced that Marvel vs. Capcom 3, (which was just released this past February) is being re-released again this November in a updated version called Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. So this upcoming November, you'll be dishing out damage on Sentinel spammers with Marvel's Ghost Rider and Hawkeye while bringing the pain with Capcom's Firebrand and Strider Hiryu. In addition to the large addition of twelve characters, there will be more features such as online spectator mode (where instead of waiting for others in game lobbies you can watch others fighting while waiting).

    Taking a page from Super Street Fighter IV, the game will be released on disc for $39.99 at all retail locations.

    While I am a big fan of fighting games, and I did like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to a good point (until I was the receiving end of every online 500 hit combo with a team of Zero, Wolverine, and Sentinel), I do feel like this felt better as DLC content instead of a released disc version. I mean twelve characters is great but wouldn't it be easier for me to keep my disc of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and just download them instead of running to my store and trading it in and installing it on my 360? Nethertheless, I'll be getting it.

    Just received, there is newinformation on the remaining characters have been leaked thanks to the efforts of some fans. Included in the new roster includes Marvel characters Rocket Raccoon, Dr. Strange, Nova, and Iron Fist while Capcom will be getting Vergil, Nemesis, Frank West, and....Phoenix Wright?!?

    As if Frank West wasn't surprising enough, Phoenix Wright? Myself and a number of Capcom fans kept voicing for him to appear, but I didn't think they would...but it seems like Capcom listened and gave us what we want. will he fight? Call Franziska Von Karma to whip Deadpool into submission? Get Gumshoe for police backup?

    Actually...I think I may know.

  • Can Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Fix The Rage Quit Problem?

    Capcom Game cures more Rage Quits?

    Rage quitting is an actionnewer to consoles then it is to PC, but the term and the actionhave been around for quite awhile. Rage quitting is exactly as it sounds, it's when a player is frustrated and has the suspicion they're going to lose an online game so they choose to disconnect rather then accept defeat or ruin their win ratio. Street Fighter 4 players dealt with this fairly regularly although Capcom worked to fix the problem by revealing the disconnect ratio of players to encourage them not to disconnect until their match was over.

    With Marvel vs Capcom 3 Capcom has a different approach. The disconnect ratio of players isn't so public, but hidden more in the back end, more involved with which players are connecting to whom. The point of this new system is to punish players that rage quite by setting those kinds of players in a completely different pool then regular players. If you disconnect frequently you're going to be lined up with players that also frequently disconnect. Sounds like a good fix. Let sore losers play amongst themselves. Might be unfortunate for players that just have a poor connection, but Capcom can't please everyone.

    Marvel vs Capcom 3 comes out February 15th for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
