Game Review - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Is this game worthy of its “Ultimate” title?

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which only came out in February. For $40 you get everything in the original fighting game along with 12 new characters, four new maps and tons of balancing tweaks. Some of the original characters have additional moves and all of them have additional in-game dialogue. Is it worth $40 for an upgrade though?

Gears of War 3 glitch shots

    Gears of War 3 is a great game. It improves on Gears of War 2 in every gameplay sense possible and the storytelling is improved as well. It's not perfect, and it takes a bit too long to fight against the locusts in campaign mode, but its still the best in the trilogy. That said, I found a minor glitch in the middle of my Insane playthrough. It's nothing major, in fact this happens in lots of modern games, but I still think it was funny. Here are the pictures.

    Yup, when I hopped onto the forklift, Marcus stood straight up, standing on air.When I sidestepped, Marcus turned almost 90 degrees in the direction I was facing. Nothing else really happened and the game still saved properly. AWESOME!

My other blog

    I started another blog about a month ago, mostly because of my new found interest in comics. On it, I review comics from the perspective of a new fan for other new fans or people who are interested but have never tried them out. In every review, I try to explain the basic facts you'll need to know before jumping into the series. Every week I also check out a new title I've never read before without any previous research and judge it on both quality and how easy it is for a new reader to jump on. If you have any interest in comics, check it out. I will still update this blog whenever I have the time, and I have stuff in the works, but for now I'll be working on that one more. Also whenever I review a comic related movie, I'll be posting it on both blogs. Below are two sample reviews from my new blog.
