    SEGA’s ‘Shinobi’ and ‘CRUSH3D’ meet delays

    SEGA announced release dates for two of their 3DS titles today, and they’re a bit later than expected. Shinobi, which was originally expected in September, is moving all the way to a November 15 release. CRUSH3D will be released next year, on February 21. Harsh news for 3DS owners, especially after Mega Man Legends 3‘s cancellation yesterday. This may be due to the Nintendo 3DS’ adoption rate, but of course none of these companies would ever just come out and say that, so we’ll never be really sure.

    Activision reveals vocal talent for two of its Marvel titles

    The super heroes in Activision’s two latest Marvel Comics titles, Spider-Man: Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny, are getting some super talent behind them. Each game’s got three big names behind it. Spider-Man will feature Val Kilmer as Walker Sloan, V‘s Laura Vandervoort as Mary Jane and Katee Sackhoff (cue squees from Battlestar Galactica fans) as Black Cat. In X-Men Destiny, we’ve got Heroes dreamboat Milo Ventimiglia, Sucker Punch‘s Jamie Chung and Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter bringing three new mutants to life: Grant Alexander, Aimi Yoshida and Adrian Luca, in that order. “These amazing casts of talented Hollywood actors help bring the rich storylines of Spider-Man: Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny to life,” said Vicharin Vadakan, Director of Marketing, Activision Publishing. “Players this fall will get to control the destiny of their own mutants or save Spider-Man and through this voice talent feel like they are part of

    ‘Mega Man’ fans are really, really sad about this cancellation

    On one hand, I definitely understand it. Capcom had sort of turned this into a community project and people were really, really into it. (On the other, I personally have zero stake in Mega Man anything.) So there’s no surprise on my end about the outpouring of…well, whatever feelings these represent. Apparently a lot of people will really miss Tron Bonne, too. Click through the gallery to see some responses to the news. (All images via Reddit and the Capcom forums…if you made one, let me know. They’re being reposted in several places, so it’s impossible to know whose they are.)

    Guide to SDCC Exclusives

    People go to San Diego Comic Con for many reasons. Hopefully most go at least for comics and then there is a bonus of learning about upcoming movies, your favorite tv shows and maybe meeting a star or two. Then there’s the parties. But everyone’s inner collector comes out at SDCC. Since I’ve been attending SDCC for 13 years now, I thought I would list some of my tips for getting the exclusives that you want. Trust me, they are based on experience. 1. Do your research The list of exclusives is actually up on the SDCC site here.

    ‘Mega Man Legends 3′ meets the axe

    Things hadn’t been going well for Mega Man Legends 3. It lost its creator (in that the guy just completely left the company), and we just…hadn’t heard anything about it in a while. But the final nail in the coffin was added last night, with Capcom’s “GregaMan” writing that, “We’d like to thank you for your ongoing loyal support of Mega Man Legends 3. Today, however, we must regrettably announce the discontinuation of this project.” Apparently it never ended up meeting whatever kind of “criteria” the company has set up to determine the They’ve even got a whole Q&A set up, but I don’t recommend that you read it unless you like to be very depressed. The Internet outrage has begun, by the way. Capcom’s user-submitted photo gallery’s got some interesting additions:
