Frank West confirmed for Tatsunoku vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars!

Posted in Uncategorized on September 24, 2009 by drtactix

TGS is happening now, so you can expect to hear tons of news from Japan.  One of the most exciting news to hit (for me) involves a new secret character for TvC….Frank West from Dead Rising!

I dont know how I feel about this…..I was totally rooting for Zack and Wiki to be the new character, since I think their art style fits totally with what TvC was aiming for.  Frank West’s specials look fun, but his fighting style just seems weird.  To see what I mean, check out the link below to the Capcom-Unity site!

Sam Raimi to direct live-action Warcraft movie. This is happening.

Posted in Movie, WoW with tags , , , , , , , on July 22, 2009 by mornaur

More than three years after Blizzard announced their intentions to produce a live-action feature film based on the Warcraft universe, and after a fairly long news drought regarding the issue, it has come to light that director Sam Raimi of Evil Dead and Spider-man fame, has been sign on to direct the film.

This movie still has my vote to be the first successful (critically and commercially) film based off a video game. When they initially announced the Prince of Persia film, I was hoping that would be the first one, but looking at it now, I highly doubt it. I’ve got confidence that Blizzard has enough pride in their work that they would not allow a sub-par product to ship.

The film will be produced jointly by Blizzard and Legendary Pictures (300, The Dark Knight, Watchmen), and distributed by Warner Bros. Per previous announcements made many years back, this movie will not lack in the budget department. Blizzard initially reported that the movie’s budget would exceed $100 million. With all the big names being tacked onto the movie thus far, I would not doubt it.

In terms of plot, Blizzard originally stated that it will not be one of the main plotlines from within Warcraft lore, although it may run concurrent to one of them. The main character will most likely also not be one of the well-known ones from the game. It’ll be interesting to see what Blizzard comes up with.

“So I hopped on a fucking DINOSAUR, traveled back to the present, and stomped the shit out of robot zombies. Did you just read that sentence? Did you really? I FUCKING TRAVELED THROUGH TIME AND JUMPED ON A DINOSAUR AND USED IT TO KILL MOTHERFUCKING ROBOT ZOMBIES. This game is unbelievable. Impossible. There’s nothing you can’t do. Holy fucking shit.”

Consider this an apology for not posting lately.  The last few weeks of work have been absolutely hellish.  I’ve got a sabbatical coming up in just two months (and PAX!), so I think I can hang on.

When the concept of downloading old games was first realized, there were three games I swore I would buy regardless of the cost.  Secret of Mana, which I have on the Virtual Console, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which will come out this summer and the greatest brawler of all time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, which I am still waiting on….

But not for long! Hit the jump for details and video!

Street Fighter IV National Tournament Coverage

Posted in Capcom, street fighter on April 24, 2009 by drtactix


Its been a while since the Gamestop and Capcom sponsored National Tournament was held last week, but the internet at my house is broken (along with my 360, but that’s another blog all together).  Luckily, I have a quick 45 minutes to blog during my office hours!

I was super stoked to go to this tournament, partly cause I love Capcom, and also because I love Street Fighter.  It was held at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion in SF, which is a little off the beaten path.  I arrived a bit late, so when I got there, tons of people were already inside watching the Quarter-Finals take place.  It was held in the largest venue that I’ve seen for a gaming event so far, with lots of room for gaming kiosks and places to get free swag such as shirts and hats.
