It's not wise to make a
green lady angry.
The two new characters announced for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
this week are
Zero and She-Hulk. The game will be out on February 15th, 2011 with a
special edition in tow. The
special edition has a Steelbook case, prologue comic, a one month
subscription to Marvel digital Comics, and the announcement and inclusion of
Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine DLC characters.
Speaking of Marvel, Zen Pinball is bringing
Marvel Pinball to PSN and XBLA in December. There will be four tables, one
for Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Blade. Blade? That's kind of a weird
GameStop accidentally posted a
Dreamcast Collection. We don't know what games will be on it, but we love

The next Darksiders game
could star Death, Fury, Strife, or all three.
Darksiders 2 will star a different character than War and the story will
actually take place alongside the first game. So would we have to wait until
the third game to have the sequel hinted at in the end of the first game? Or
will each successive game star one of the four horsemen with the fifth game
being the true sequel? Well, either way, if Darksiders 2 doesn't sell
at least 1.3 million copies there won't be a third game.
Udon's next Mega Man book is the
Robot Masters Field Guide with profiles on all the bosses from Mega
Man 1-10, Mega Man and Bass, the Mega Man Game boy
series, and the important characters.
Scorpion was the first story trailer for the new Mortal Kombat,
so it's only appropriate that
Sub Zero gets the second trailer.
College Humor/Dorky have a couple new videogame videos.
Mega Man is kind of a jerk to his tutor.
The Roast of Mario has a couple funny lines, but it's mostly meh.

The second Wolverine movie won't be called X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 or some
garbage like that. Instead the title is
The Wolverine and it isn't actually a sequel, it's just another movie
starring Wolverine. Interesting. I can' t wait until we hear what the name of
the inevitable third movie will be, probably something like Snikt.
villain/ love interest speculation continue for The Dark Knight
Rises. Christopher Nolan is meeting with a bunch of actresses, namely
Rachel Weisz, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, and
Keira Knightley, for two parts in the next film.
Starz will be making a
live-action Noir series, based off the incredibly boring
anime of the same name about two female assassins. Sam Raimi will be an
executive producer, though, so maybe he'll be able to make the show actually

Snarf snarfs snarfing
Snarf will not talk in the
new Thundercats cartoon, according to producer Michael Jelenic.
Snarf just say stuff like, "Snarf Snarf." I'm okay with this. It's kind of
like when the 200X Masters of the Universe cartoon came out and Cringer
just growled and made cat noises instead of talking like in the old He-Man
cartoon. I liked Cringer more when he didn't talk, so maybe I'll like Snarf
more in the new Thundercats. Jelenic is also working on simplifying the
mythology a little and that everyone's favorite characters will be in the
Keiji Inafune's Dead Rising Sun movie will be getting a
DVD release in Japan with extra scenes. I still haven't seen this yet, but
I hear it's absolutely terrible.
A guy and his friends spent three years making
Halo Spartan costumes so they could be the cast of Red Vs. Blue for
Halloween. Long time, but great work.
