157w ago - Today Marvel Studios Licensed Games Manager Chris Baker has announced that X-Men Arcade is coming Tomorrow to PSN.
To quote: Joining Marvel Pinball on the PlayStation Network this Tuesday, X-Men Arcade holds a special place in my Marvel-loving heart and even helped shape my knowledge of the Marvel Universe at a fairly young age.
OK, so maybe it was off in a few ways - and that's what I'm counting down here today.
X-Men Arcade holds up as one of the greatest beat-'em-up games of its era, and if you were a fan of it when it came out, I think you'll agree that the 18-year wait for a console version was definitely worth it... but not only for gameplay fun and nostalgia.
A big part of the game's charm playing it now is something we didn't really think twice about back in 1992 - powers that went beyond characters' capabilities, laughable in-game dialogue, and other oddities, for example.
In other words, the kinds of things that the person with my job at Marvel would strike down in a game design document...

241w ago - X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition Review by Shummyr:
Name of Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition
Release Date: 5-1-2009
Genre: Action and Adventure
Buy/Don't: No (But makes a good weekend rental)
Overall Rating: 5.0 out of 10.00
Platforms: XBox 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP and PC
This is a simple hack-and-slash game... it will take about 20 hours to complete. The camera is fluid but can be a tad bit jerky at times, other than that it's good.
The story is somewhat shallow and the flashbacks are frequent. The controls, however, are very well placed and easy to remember.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition) presents an excellent amount of challenges, and the achievements are strategically placed so that unlocking them coincides with relevant parts of the storyline.
It's also very neat how you can unlock old costumes and play with the classic costumes.
This game reminds me a lot of Wolverine's Revenge.. very similar if not a remake, with updated graphics and a new storyline.
The reason I would not buy this game instead of renting it is because I'm not a big fan of hack-and-slash genre (it's...
