Ono X Harada - The Epic Battle

Yoshinori Ono(Street Fighter) and Katsuhiro Harada(Tekken) are at it again to determine who is the best through a series of challenges. Just caught this video and this time it's on this years GamesCom. An amazing way to promote the game, at the same time entertain the fans.


It's obviously rigged, but still fun to watch. Both producers have been doing this ever since they officially revealed Street Fighter X Tekken for the first time. I still remember Harada barging in a Capcom's press conference and handing out Tekken 6 copies to the crowd. Epic stuff. The last one before this GamesCom battle was Comic Con, we're they included some fans. It's all in good fun so kudos to Ono and harada for doing this.

Dark Souls Gamescom trailer

The Gamescom trailer of Dark Souls reminds us how hard and frustrating this game would be. I'm going to love and hate this game so much. 



Damn those bosses are no joke!

Dark Souls is going to piss us off on October 4 2011 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.



New Guild Wars 2 footage from Gamescom 2011

More new Guild Wars 2 footage and these videos makes you want to beg ArenaNet for a release date already. It's looking better and better which makes me think that it'll be the change we need in MMO's.

Guild Wars 2 Gamescom 2011 trailer


This is definitely going to be my next MMO, and it has no monthly fee which is perfect. I'll be playing Guild Wars 2 for a very long time I'm sure. It will most likely come out somewhere around 2012 since there are rumors of alpha and beta testing that will happen this year. When we hear about a public beta testing, thats a good indication that it's around 6 months away at least.

Guild Wars 2 Boss Fight: Tequatl the Sunless


Wondered what that amazing looking dragon is in the trailer?? well it's a boss fight that can have up to around 100 players participating in the fight. This fight has a lot of roles that splits the players into doing different tasks like controlling the turrets, taking down the bone walls and of course going head to head with the dragon itself. It's a very dynamic fight and I can't wait to see more of their boss fights in the game.

Whats funny is, the guy said that this is just one of the small dragons in Guild Wars 2. So they have bigger?? heck, this looks grand enough. But if they want to bring bigger, by all means.

Press demo with Developer Commentary



This is pretty lengthy, a video explaining us character customization, underwater combat, dynamic events, game mechanics and more. Definitely a must see.
