Street Fighter IV Producer Wants Tekken in PlayStation Home

50°
290w ago - Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has told Famitsu (via IGN, linked above) that he would like to see Namco's flagship fighter Tekken and PlayStation social network service Home come together.

He stated he'd like to see a Tekken 6 tie-up with Home, suggesting that both the Street Fighter and Tekken communities could form some sort of cross-community tournament. A sort of Fight Club perhaps?

Ono also revealed the possibility of a Street Fighter-themed game space. With Capcom already working on exclusive content for Home, this one is practically a given.

To quote: Ono also discussed some of the possibilities for Home Clubs. He suggested that if Tekken 6 were to have a tie-up with Home, perhaps they could create some form of tournament pitting the Tekken 6 community versus the Street Fighter IV community.

Jokingly, he suggested that the Tekken 6 development staff who were reading the article should give Home compatibility consideration.
 

Preview: Watchmen: The End is Nigh for PlayStation 3

200°
290w ago - Watchmen is regarded by many to be one of the greatest graphic novels of all time. In conjunction with the movie's release is a video game tie-in for Sony's PS3 (and the XBox 360) as follows:

The End is Nigh certainly does a lot of things right, and it's these dressings that make the game worthwhile for Watchmen fans.

The visuals are absolutely gorgeous; the dark, rain-drenched cities of the graphic novel are accurately recreated in the game. Multiplatform digital releases very rarely, if ever, look this good.

Each chapter begins with an animated introduction that fleshes out this prequel's story. While the production values don't match those of the Watchmen digital comic, these animated shorts do an admirable effort in recreating the look of the original graphic novel.

Fans will certainly appreciate being able to see Rorschach and Nite Owl as crimefighters, not the condemned outcasts they become in the original story.

While it's easy to get swept away by the impressive presentation, the gameplay is thoroughly uninspired. Players can play as either Rorscach or Nite Owl, but the choice seems largely inconsequential.

Ultimately, all players have access to are a generic combination of punches and kicks. Nite Owl can do electric attacks, and Rorscach can...

Rumor: God of War III for PlayStation 3 Details Leaked!

350°
290w ago - This GameFAQs [Register or Login to view links] claims to have info on God of War III from an upcoming Game Informer feature.

Official details are embargoed until this Friday, with a press event taking place for the game in LA last night.

This lot doesn't sound amazingly far-fetched, to be fair:

• Unlike God of War 1 and 2 where there are only 15 enemies on screen, there will now be around 50 this time.
• You can ride monsters like the Cyclops and "control".
• Kratos on the PS2 used 5,000 polygons, now he uses 20,000.
• They made the weapons "better" so it adds more variety. Like with a different weapon, you don't get just a couple different attacks, but a whole different play style.
• The lion gauntlets are called Cestus.
• Enemy AI's are a lot smarter. Some of the enemies will be "commanders" and control the other grunts.
• Enemies will look different, even if they're the same type. Like, even though the skeleton soldiers are in the same category, they will have varied looks, so it's not like everyone looks the same.
• More boss fights than GoW 1, but less than GoW 2.
• No multiplayer.
• Hades boss fight confirmed.
