I remember having a lot of fun with Dynasty Warriors on the PS2.  Kind of interested in playing the new one, but not interested enough to get a PS3. 

Is it just my eyes, or are none of the enemies actually attacking Link in that trailer?  They are just kind of wandering around waiting to get swept up in the whirlwind.

Dynasty Warriors 8 is probably the best of the current gen Dynasty titles.

So I heard.  But I also heard there's no plans on porting it to the PC, which is a shame.

In the last few years more and more Japanese developers are porting to PC. They were probably swayed by the fact Dark Souls sold like gang busters on PC and that games port was pretty sorry until modders fixed it. I was surprised to see Metal Gear Rising coming soon to PC, we'll have to wait and see how good the port is though.

FYI- Deadpool mysteriously disappeared from Steam this morning, right in the middle of a flash sale. (And XBL and PSN too.) There are strong rumors right now that Activision is losing the rights to the character at the end of the year. If you want the game, it's still available at Amazon ($9.99)  and Gamefly ($7.99) but who knows for how much longer. Console copies will still be floating around, but once again, no one knows for how long.


Yes, it activates on Steam. And, just as an FYI, in these cases, once a game is in your library, Steam will let you keep downloading it. But no one else can pick it up beyond then. You can still use the code to activate it (I just did this with the DLC) but once again, not sure for how long.


It was a decent game, if a bit repetitive. The voice work was awesome though.

I played Deadpool and I strongly do not recommend it. Unless your really into Deadpool from the comics avoid this game. Deadpool himself and the dialog is reasonable accurate (I've been told by Deadpool fans) but the gameplay is tedious, graphics are horrible, and nothing about the game is new or unique.

I think that intentionally bad dialogue seems more and more played out.

Eh, it's a divisive title. I've seen it on some worst of the year lists and some best of the year lists.


But just to elaborate, Activision noted today that yes, they are no longer selling digital downloads of  the Marvel titles they produced. This includes X-Men: The Official Game, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men Destiny, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Oh, and Deadpool.

Anyone catch the image released for the next Arkham Origins DLC?



Yep, they're doing their own Heart of Ice.  If they can capture enough of the quality of that story, I'll be happy.

That would be awesome. He would be a gun enthusiast that cries all the time with his right wing, conspiracy theory believing henchmen.

Reminds me of one of my favorite boss fights ever, Bob Barbas from the new Devil May Cry. (Skip to 01:45)

Only if the absolutely atrocious Bill Mahar gets to be beaten up by Batman, too. That will be the only way that I'm OK with that outcome.

The new Devil May Cry was awesome, I got to 80% and never finished it, maybe I'll go back to it some time.

Old School game box cover artist, Greg Martin, has passed away.

Here's a tribute and pictures of his work:

I have many of those boxes permanently etched in my brain. RIP.

No, no, that's obviously a Larry King style mic, a.k.a. Ra's Al Ghul left out of the Lazarus Pit too long.
