    Review: Dead or Alive Paradise

    It’s like playing with Barbies, a very mature bunch of Barbies. And it’s my guilty pleasure. I know I am not alone in this either. ESRB: M for Mature Genre: Relationship Simulation Number of Players: One Developer: Tecmo Koei Release Date: March 30, 2010 (UMD), April 1, 2010 (Digital) Buy Buy it now from Amazon.com Everything you’ve heard about the Dead or Alive Volleyball games is true, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been fun. Sure the girls have flawlessly perfect bodies, and yes, DOA breasts seem to have a special gravity field (or maybe lack thereof), but the relaxing vacation experience is really just as much fun for the girl gamers as it is for the guys.

    Delays for some Capcom games in 2010

    Sad news for some gamers. Capcom recently announced in an investor’s document that Street Fighter IV, Lost Planet 2 and Monster Hunter Tri will not be released in Q1 of 2010. There is no scheduled release date for these games aside from sometime in 2010. Other title release dates seem to be on track for 2010. The new release dates are being chalked up to Capcom wanting to maintain their high standards for releases. But whatever the reason I’m sure that there will be some upset fans over the pushback for release. Here’s hoping that we see them in at least Q2! Source Follow

Interesting that it’s an all new title instead of DLC. The Yoshinori Ono says that the changes are so extensive that a new disc release was necessary. It’s due in Spring 2010 for the PS3 and 360.

    Big Street Fighter IV news coming tomorrow

    A teaser site from Capcom promises some exciting news for fans of Street Fighter IV. The news should come tomorrow but what it is about, we’re not sure. The link itself does say new warrior.

But for now, Capcom has, “no comment”. So we’ll wait for tomorrow. Follow
