A first look at Tekken x Street Fighter!

There were tons of previews and details on Capcom's Streetfighter x Tekken, but Namco didn't have much to show besides its announcement. Well, they've released some prototype images of Ryu rendered in the Tekken engine.

Well, it looks awkward just as I expected it to be. His uniform is Paul's uniform too. It doesn't scream awesome like Kazuya did in Street Fighter x Tekken. Luckily, this is just a very early test render and isn't anywhere near final. I have faith in Ono and Street Fighter x Tekken, since if follows Street Fighter 4 closely enough, it should be loads of fun. I'm still iffy about Harada's game, however. I'll need more information than this.

Tekken: The Movie...

In case you didn't know, there's a live-action Tekken movie that came out recently. I'm a huge fan of Tekken, so I had to see it. Just a heads-up: I knew it was going to be crap the moment it was announced, but being a relentless fan, I thought I could have some stupid fun. I didn't know I would be disappointed at every fucking turn.

Ranking the Final Fantasy Games

Many fans and gaming sites have tried to rank the Final Fantasy games, so I thought I'd give it a shot as well. I consider the Final Fantasy series to be my all-time favorite game series. I've loved it for years, and I've played each and every game several times. So this begs the question: which game is the best in the series? This question is furiously debated, and opinions are often all over the place. Here is my personal list of the Final Fantasy games, ranked from worst to best. Note that these are just my own observations, so feel free to comment on your own thoughts.

Trine [Review]

Trine is a side-scrolling platformer and a gorgeous one at that. If you can imagine a fairytale come to life with high resolution graphics, Trine is exactly that. Most of the environments are in the woodlands, complete with detailed forested backgrounds, glowing plant-filled foreground, and all manner of platforms and traps. The screenshots really don't do it justice; it really looks nice is what I'm trying to say. The gameplay is that of a platformer,but it is anything but simple. The physics are incredibly smooth and responsive, and you take advantage of this realistic environment with three different playable characters. They consist of a wizard, a thief, and a knight. You play as one at a time, and you magically switch between them by pressing the shoulder buttons.
