  • New MK is for tournament fighters

  • Akari 27/10/2010

    I wonder if they'll get rid of the cheat code style command inputs for special moves? Never understood that, or having a specific button to block. What's wrong with holding back?

    Won't be suprised if it turns out to be rubbish. The only half decent Mortal Kombat game in my opinion was MK2.

  • Street Fighter IV

  • Akari 05/01/2009

    Having played the arcade version a fair few times while I was in Japan, I can say that it plays more like SSF2T than the Alpha games or SFIII. So if you played any of the original versions of SF2 then you shouldn't have problems with SFIV. Don't let a few technial terms in an article put you off what is a very, very good game. Reply 0
  • DualShock 3 gets Oz release date

    I ordered my two DS3's from VG+ the other week for Ł25 each. I'm sure they'll cost a hell of a lot more than that when there finally released in Europe. Reply 0
  • Lack of SSFII beta for PS3 explained

  • Akari 17/03/2008

    "Haha more proof that the PS3 is a POS."

    How does the submission process that publishers have to adhere to in anyway determine the quality of a console!?

    You clearly don't have a clue about what goes on before a title hits the shelves.

  • Call of Duty 4 patched for 360

  • Akari 29/02/2008

    "It may even have gone live - we haven't got a retail PS3 at the office at the moment, but you're welcome to fill us in in the comments thread."

    Even if you have a TEST unit, it will still detect that a patch is available when you boot the game. However you'll get an authentication error when it attempts to install the update.

  • Street Fighter IV specials uncovered

  • Akari 30/01/2008


    It was possible to cancel special moves and go straight into super's in SF3 3S, which didnt break the game, so I can't see it turning SF4 into an unbalanced mess.
