NY Comic Con: Cosplay, kooks, and characters (update #2!)

NY Comic Con
on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

The show is over. New York Comic Con 2010 has come to a close, and with it fades away another weekend filled with all matters geek.  There were plenty of games to be seen: Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Mega Man Universe, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and other video games all shined brightly. Still, Comic Con, be it New York’s or San Diego’s, is all about the sights. As such,...

NY Comic Con: Kirby’s Epic Yarn – Co-op Gameplay

on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Thomas Rivas

As promised, we’re bringing you gameplay footage of the Kirby’s Epic Yarn cooperative mode. This time around Kirby is getting some backup in the form of a blue sidekick named Prince Fluff. With the ability for a second player to join in at anytime throughout the game, players can experience the levels in a whole new way and as you’ll see from the video below,...

NY Comic Con: Hands-on Donkey Kong Country Returns

donkey kong country returns
on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Tim Torres

2D-X associate Thomas Rivas and I got our paws on Nintendo and Retro Studio’s new Donkey Kong Country Returns. Taking control of the Nunchuk and Wiimote I stepped into Donkey Kong’s, uh, shoes while Tom took over for Diddy. Controlling a lot like a tighter version of the SNES games — without any of that annoying slipperiness they sometimes suffered —...

NY Comic Con: Mega Man Universe shines

on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Tim Torres

Like many fans, when I saw the first screens for Mega Man Universe my heart sunk. “Bland” was probably the kindest word I could say about them, and I wasn’t too thrilled about the Little Big Planet meets Mega Man style of game they were proposing either. Another game that depends entirely on mediocre user maps? Ohhh boy. Rev up those pre-orders. I figured...

NY Comic Con: Kirby’s Epic Yarn – Boss Battle

on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Thomas Rivas

Now that the dust has settled at Jacob Javits Center and many of Comic-Con’s attendees have gone home to their parents, I’ve been able to regain my sanity and compile the best of what the show had to offer (in my opinion). First up is Kirby’s Epic Yarn. This game was already on my radar after Nintendo showcased it earlier this year at E3 but seeing the cooperative...

Tournament of Legends (Wii) Review – A history of mediocre violence

Tournament of Legends review
on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By John De Large

Tournament of Legends sounds like it has all the makings of a Game of the Year: Players can pit gladiators, gods, and other mythical creatures against each other in a tournament unlike any other while using swords, spells, and lots of violent weapons. The winner of the faces off with the game’s big baddie, Thanos, to settle their own personal agenda. Sounds like a pretty...

Hands-On with Majin and the Forbidden Kingdom

on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

The UK trailer for Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom has been making the rounds since March. After a name change for the US market and slight retooling, Namco showed off its new demo of Majin and the Forbidden Kingdom at a press event this week. It was worth the wait. The game features thief Topayu and a giant, sweet-natured mythical creature called a Majin. They’re stranded...

NY Comic Con: Concept Art House

on Sat, Oct 9, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

I came this meeting expecting to talk about a “transmedia” video game (what the heck is that??); I left it with hopes of testing an amazing FREE RPG and a sense of awe at the quality of their work. Concept Art House is a Triple A design studio based in Shanghai. They’ve got offices in San Fran, too, but the bulk of their work is done is China. That’s...

NY Comic Con: Hands-on with Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Marvel vs. Capcom 3
on Fri, Oct 8, 2010 | By Tim Torres

Finally! I’ve watched and watched and watched and today, I got to play. And I got whooped. …But not without knocking off two of my opponent’s fighters! I selected Ryu and Captain America for familiarity’s sake and chose Chris Redfield as my new recruit. Playing on an official Marvel vs. Capcom 3 arcade stick, I was able to leap into the action easily....
