Capcom to have fans make a Street Fighter Series
Capcom has announced Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, a live-action series in the vein of the Street Fighter: Legacy fan film, will debut in 2013. What makes this even more interesting is not only will it be in the vein of the fan film but they pegged Streetlight films the people who created the fan film to do the series. I have to commend Capcom for this. They took a group who loved Street Fighter and made an awesome fan film for the game and are having them do a full series. You cannot beat that. Shows great work perseveres over big budget crap fests. Don't get me wrong the old Street Fighter movie with Van Damme well it is a great cheese fest and the only reason to watch is Raul Julia. None the less if you have not watched Street Fighter: Legacy I am going to post the video please check it out.

Borderlands 2 is no short trip through the wastelands
Gearbox has revealed that it is going to take you at least 60 hours to complete one play through of Borderlands 2. No complaints here. This is what games should be a well in depth involvement with the world and game. I like that Gearbox is saying you will not be finishing this in one quick play through and will have to invest some time to get all the character types done.
“We look at it as a hobby, and that isn’t even counting the new Badass Points system and how that’ll affect every character you do. We want it to feel like you get more for your money. We’re happy for people to pay their money once and feel that they get ongoing value.”Gearbox marketing VP Steve Gibson told Gamerzines.
I still have this as one of my must have games for the year. I am definitely looking forward to this.
New game imports to my collection
I have a tendency to love certain Japanese Imports of games. I think a good chunk of games are better played in their original way. I will give you an example. Tenchu when it was released for the PSX was a completely different game than what the Japanese fans got. Missions were different as well as certain elements were removed. I had played and still own the Japanese version and love it. Shame that the game never found it's niche here in the states. Well recently I picked up some Imports to add to my gaming collection. What I think are 3 gems to add by the way.
The first being Godzilla Generations:Maximum Impact an Action game released by Sega for the Dreamcast in 1999. The game serves as a sequel to Godzilla Generations, one of the system's launch titles.
The game is split to levels in which Godzilla is stomping forward through a city while he has to shoot enemies. The player can also make Godzilla duck and dodge attacks, by holding or tapping the analog pad. In other levels, Godzilla can walk freely and has to fight in one-on-one against all the Heisei era monsters except Battra, Mecha-King Ghidorah, and Rodan/Fire Rodan, as well as Space Godzilla. I loved the first game and look forward to finally owning this sequel and playing through it on my dreamcast.
The second game is another Godzilla game that I originally had and somehow had it disappear on me. Godzilla Rettoushinkan ("Godzilla Archipelago shock" in English) on the Saturn is a real time battle simulation game. I had originally beaten the game when it released but it took me forever. I am not one who is big on Real Time Strategy games but I forced myself when this came out. It is one of proudest moments when I finished that game with no knowing of reading Japanese.
Now for the Fan Film Street Fighter:Legacy I am sure you guys will like it.
Make sure you watch it big and in HD if you can. It is really well done and I look forward to see what these guys can do with Capcom backing them.
