Pac Tribute

No it's not about Manny Pacquiao, what I meant was the other Pac-Man, the original Pac-Man that is.
Last May 21 marks the 30th anniversary of the classic and now famous video game; Pac-Man

Some made tribute to the power pellet muncher, such as popular search engine Google, where they changed their title logo into the stage mimicking the exact one from the original game, and the best part, the logo was playable.

It even spurred issues in the business world, eating up hours of productivity time.

Also, the people at CNYBacon made also a tribute, but this time to the ghosts that always get munched by Pac-Man.

Happy 30th Anniversary Pac-Man!!

Gender Bender

We know we have badass characters like Kratos, Master Chief and Altair as well as some hot chicks like Samus Aran and Lara Croft.

Now what if you mixed up their genders, Kratos as a Goddess of War and Lara Croft as a Dude Raider (LOL!!), now will this do anything wrong? Well the people at Kotaku.com tried that , and from the looks of it, they seemed to look pretty good.

You can check out the images below, can you guess from what games they are after gender transformation? happy viewing folks

The Evolution of Haduken

In every Street Fighter game, as well as any Capcom versus series, the Capcom roster won't be complete without Ryu, heck it even start in the late 80's with the very first Street Fighter in the arcades.

So let's take a look in one of Ryu's famous special moves: the Haduken and see how it evolves from a simple 2D sprite skill move, to the super move in smooth 2D animation up to the more ultra move in glorious HD. Credits to Gametrailers.com for making this video.

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Character Wish List (Part 2)

Welcome back, for the second part of the Marvel vs Capcom 3 special feature, we will be now focusing on the Marvel characters that you wish to be on the upcoming 3rd installment of the very much famous versus series.
You can check the first part of the feature by clicking here.

But before we can continue, let's take a look from a video post on Gametrailers.com on their predictions based on the teaser trailer of MvC3 on who's in the roster, and it supposed to be around 30 characters in the game (and that's a lot if you ask me)

And now to the serious part, my list of Marvels characters that should be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3:

Iron Fist
The Marvel roster needs a Martial Arts expert, so Iron Fist fits the line, give him martial arts like of attacks and super combos and he's ready to go.

Professor Xavier
Now how can Prof. X be useful in a fighting game, two words: "Mind Control", give the professor mind control attacks that stun enemies and some psionic blasts, and for an added bonus, he can transform into Onslaught as a super combo, neat huh?

Jean Grey (Phoenix)
Either the normal version or the dark version of the Phoenix will be nice. In case Prof. X is in the list, might as well make Jean Grey into the Phoenix for a more different telepath. Give her insane attacks similar to the comic books and full screen flaming super moves for some epic goodness.

The New Captain America
If you guys read the Civil War arc in the Marvel Comics, then you know that there's a new Captain America in town(and he wields a gun!). Give this new Cap some of the classic moves and a some new ones for his trusty gun.

Spiderman (Black Symbiote costume)
Yep the other classic black costume, long before Venom was created, there's the Black Spiderman. Some combination of Venom and the classic Spidey would be cool to see in this black version.

Spiderman (Civil War version)
Actually I picked two different versions of Spiderman for my wishlist. In the Civil War arc, Spiderman was originally on Tony Stark's side before switching sides to Captain America, and at that time, Tony Stark gave Spidey a new costume with some new special tricks. It's like a combination of Iron Man and Spiderman but much cooler.

Of course the list won't be complete without a supervillain. And a supervillian in a fighting game should be super powerful. Well we already have
Thanos, Doctor Doom and Magneto, so the next super badass villain should be no other than Ultron. This one hack of a indestructable machine will give any Capcom fighter a fight of their lives.

And this wraps up the 2-part Marvel cs. Capcom 3 wishlist special feature. Hope you all enjoy in this crazy predictions, and please be reminded that this is just a wishlist, it doesn't guarantee that any of this will indeed appear in the upcoming fighting game.

Happy gaming...
