Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Features

FeatureCheap This Week - 25/05/11

Demon's Souls! Nintendogs + Cats! Pikmin!

It's Wednesday, so it's time for our weekly roundup of cut-price games. This week's comprehensive selection includes a classic from yesteryear, a hidden gem that you might have missed at its lowest price yet, a cheap pre-order and a couple of new releases nicely discounted. If you want more cheap games pumped into your web browser around the clock, get yourself over to SavyGamer.co.uk, the home of cheap gaming in the UK.

Although I have two excellent new releases sat on my desk and hundreds of miles of Hawaiian road still to light up blue in Test Drive Unlimited 2, I'm going to be spending tonight and possibly much of the weekend playing a three-year-old game.

After ten years of epic exchanges, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is finally bowing out as its long-awaited sequel shows up, looks nonchalantly at its watch and apologises for being late. But before we take the Sons of Sparda and Odin into the training room, two of the world's most accomplished Marvel 2 players want to show you their skills in one last high stakes money-match.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

Destined for greatness?

This year marked my first trip to the Eurogamer Expo. I was only able to attend the opening day, and with so many games and conferences I wanted to sample, I came up with a simple strategy: don't stay on one game for too long and try to mix it up.

FeatureCapcom talks Marvel vs. Capcom 3

"Deadpool is immortal. No one can beat him."

And all of a sudden there are more fighting games than we know what to do with. Street Fighter X Tekken, Tekken X Street Fighter, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Dead or Alive: Dimensions, King of Fighters, BlazBlue, and now, after a decade's hiatus, a new Marvel vs. Capcom game.
