Spider-Man Edge of Time is set to come out this year. Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions isn't even a year old yet. Hope you enjoyed Spider-Man SD, because this new game is looking like the exact same thing.
Shocking video today from YouTube shows another Spider-Man game already long in development. Completely playable levels, story in place, and full-on graphics. When I first saw this video, I thought I was watching some new DLC for Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions. Nope, it's a brand new game from developer Beenox and is being published by Activision.
Spider-Man Edge of Time uses the same Spider-Man's from Shattered Dimensions. Now the only difference is you only go back and forth between 2 Spider-Mans. The classic red and blue Spider-Man, that everyone loves and the Spider-Man 2099, that everybody hates. There's your balance there.
Can't wait to hear FnJimmy's take on this new Spider-Man game at E3 this year. FnJimmy followed Spider-Man SD all the way through development, if you missed any of those great stories check them out on the Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions Catalog Page.
Among the biggest of our questions to Evil Ryu is the gaping hole in his chest. Now, we find out how he received it.
Reader's Note: The following story has 2 fight sequences. You can play the Ryu Theme Music video to be played at the beginning of the fight between Ryu and Ken, and then the Akuma vs Ryu Theme music video to be played during the fight between Akuma and Ryu.
A gentle breeze flows. The blades of grass under his feet feel full and lush. Ryu has returned to Japan. And he is standing in front of his master's temple. Lingering thoughts take him to his past battles with Akuma as he is here to finish the fight with the dreaded adversary. In the distance, he hears a voice "Ryu! Ryu! Hey man, long time no see". Ken has made it to Japan. The two have decided to face off against Akuma, but to determine who will fight him, they will spar against one another and choose a victor to fight the dark hado warrior. (Activate Ryu Theme Music now) We see Ryu and Ken on opposite sides, readied in stance and friendly greeting.
As they begin, they dash towards one another. Ken takes the initiative and leaps into the air and comes down with a hard kick. Ryu dodges by rolling underneath Ken and immediately turns around while crouched and fires a Hadouken towards Ken. Ken dives to the right and merely dodges the fireball. Ryu then rushes in and begins throwing punches and hooks. Ken does his best to block and dodge while countering with quick-like feints and kicks. Ryu then blocks Ken's forward kick and grabs Ken, throwing him backwards. Ryu prepares another Hadouken, but Ken quickly regains composure as Ryu fires. Ken jumps over the fireball lands directly under Ryu, "SHORYUKEN!". Ken lands a fierce dragon punch to Ryu. As Ken descends, Ryu double back flips in the air to regain bodily control and lands safely. Ken dashes toward Ryu to try and end the match quickly, but Ryu ensnares Ken with a hard hurricane kick, "TATSUMAKI KENPUUKYAKU!", landing multiple kicks on Ken. Ken quickly rebalances himself and sweeps Ryu to the ground. Ryu quick stands and the two then dash towards the other throwing a punch, simultaneously landing the blows to each other's faces. The two jump backwards to separate. They stare at each other as Ken begins to speak, "You haven't lost your touch, Ryu >:)". "And you've gotten stronger, Ken >=)" says Ryu. "Ready to finish this!?"(Ken), "Let's do it!"(Ryu). The two then sprint towards the other ready to go all out, when suddenly out of the sky, insidious purple Zankuu Hadoukens (air fireballs) rain from the sky, forcing the two to dodge backwards and separate!
[Activate Akuma vs Ryu Theme]
(Akuma) " You two cubs prove to be mildly entertaining,but, it's time........PREPARE YOURSELF, RYU!". Ryu's eyes open wide as Akuma rushes forward with blinding speed, punching Ryu in the face. Ryu tumbles on the ground and immediately rolls to recover composure. He then looks up to see Akuma in the skies, diving down to intercept Ryu as he stands up. Ryu jumps to the side, barely dodging the menacing blow to the ground. Ryu then rushes in with a fist to Akuma's core but Akuma blocks it with crossed arms and then forcibly moves Ryu's fist to the side as Akuma comes down with an overhead chop. However, Ryu is able to cross-arm block high as Akuma's thick hand hits. Ryu's body sinks a bit into the ground as the impact of Akuma's chop comes down on him. Ryu pushes upwards and breaks Akuma off of him, immediately going into a Shoryuken! But Akuma is too battle ready and back dashes, causing Ryu to miss entirely. In that moment, Akuma unleashes the Shun Goku Satsu(Raging Demon).
Akuma lands the devastating attack, ending it with a blow to Ryu's chest.
Ryu now in agonizing pain, realizes he is about to die. That Akuma seeks to murder him like he attempted with his master Gouken. A sudden anger is unleashed, and a burning desire to kill Akuma is unlocked! Ryu's eyes turn a scorching red and his teeth become fanged. Akuma watches in pleasure as the cub's dark hadou is finally released. Ryu then surprises Akuma by lunging forward while Akuma's fist is still in his body and hits Akuma's face with his head, knocking Akuma away a great distance. Akuma holds his face a bit in pain and in somewhat wonder as Ryu stands there with a malicious grin. The hole in his chest now pouring out with the dark energy, the Satsui No Hado. Akuma realizing the boy's power is now unleashed, now hungers to test the boy's power. But knowing Ryu has not fully mastered the dark hadou, it would be a shame to kill him now and not receive the full challenge he's sought after all this time. Akuma smiles and says "I'm proud of you boy, you're transcending has been a long coming desire. When you have fully mastered your power, seek me out and we shall have fight to the death!" Akuma then slams the ground with his fist and dark energy, creating a blinding flashing light and disappears. (Ryu)" I WILL KILL YOU, AKUMA...". Ken watches with a look of despair for his friend, Ryu has succumbed to the Sastui No Hado(The Surge Of Killing Intent) And now must find a way to bring his friend back to his former self. But will Ken be able to save his closest friend???....
New Mortal Kombat movie trailer
I think we can all agree that the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation were both robbed of Best Picture Oscars the years they were released, respectively. Well it looks like someone (I can't find out exactly who other than fight choreographer I've never heard of is responsible for the fights) is looking to get revenge on the Academy by moving forward with a new movie.
This looks very slick, and they've come up with some (however asinine) storylines to explain the fighters like Reptile and Baraka which I personally am fine with because the guys who originally wrote the plots and devised the characters for the Mortal Kombat video games were in all likelihood retarded/very unintelligent and would have probably written Reptile's story such that a young boy in the 1950s got lost in a swamp and was raised by crocodiles and then mated with one which birthed the murderous killer Ninja who finishes his victims off by ripping off his mask from 30 feet away to display his long tongue range (Sonya Blade was impressed)
Not sure how I feel about Johnny Cage being offed already as I really wanted to see him uppercut three heads off someone in this.
THE BIG QUESTION? PG-13 OR R. amiright?
Anyway it's nice to see Spawn again and any of the other has-beens that will be in this. Ralph Macchio for Cyrax!
Here is a list of games I'd love to play, but I don't think are even actually in development. Well maybe 2 might be. I'm dreaming here, I know, but these games are all possible. What's on your dream list?
Deus Ex 2
I'd love to see a more open world and smarter AI. The leveling up was great, I'm sure there's plenty of stuff to expand on. More options to max out, if you didn't plan ahead about what you wanted for the end game you could end up with unfinished upgrades. I loved the original, believe it or not. I played through it 3 or 4 times. The biggest issue with part 1 was the boss fights, the devs straight out said that a third party developer did them in Deus EX. WTF? Who does that? So design your own boss fights next time and fit them into the game properly. I could raip bosses in seconds in this game.
Dragon Age III
Yes! Again, this a game I loved personally. I beat the shit out of part 2, multiple times. Dragon Age 1 ehhhh, I beat it and all the DLC, but only played through it once. I'm currently looking to buy part 1 again and give it another play through. In 3 I'd like to see a more open world. Better achievements. Switching the map from night to day should not be an achievement. I'd like to see some more original classes. Also the main character needs to speak. Shepard does, why can't Hawke? Dragon Age has some of the best looking combat and it's fun! I want more. Don't forgot to play test it and make sure the graphics don't crash end game and everything goes into super slow-mo.
Final Fantasy Tactis All Stars
Now I'm making shit up. But c'mon. Imagie Cloud, Kefka and Sephiroth on the battlefield. The original Final Fantasy Tactics is one of the greatest games of all time. You could boost some of your skills just by doing them over and over during regular battles. I love features like that. Plus you could combine jobs like archer and black mage. Cool shit. Send comletely different parties of your squad out on their own private quests and the would come back leveled up and with items. With this new version I want more of the same, keep it simple. Just add all these different Final Fantasy characters from all the different versions. Most importantly, ADD multiplayer. My squad VS your squad.
This game was revealed 2 years ago at E3. I watched a live demo with the a developer in the 2K games booth. This game was described to me as a Final Fantasy Tactics, 3PS, Mass Effect, whatever ... it had me super hype. 2K isn't even speaking about this game anymore. I will be asking at E3, what the fuck is up with this game. The new XCOM looks great too, more like the Final Fantasy Tactics. BUT I love the idea about the third person shooter aspect. I wonder if this game still exists.
Street Fighter Alpha 4
Alpha counter this Jimmy! Birdie is one of my favorite Street Fighters of all time and I would love to play with him again.
R. Mika - I had to include this pic because those titties are ridiculous.
What about Karin, I've heard different stories that Capcom doesn't even own the rights to the character because she first appeared in another Manga. You can read a Capcom thread about that if you like.
Plus Alpha featured that great 2 on 1 VS Bison. I'd love to see something like that, but with different characters in the mix. I really, really miss the Alpha series. I was the fifth.
Now I didn't play too much Darkstalkers back in the day. I do love the character design and in Ultimate, the Darkstalkers are some of my favorite characters. I'd love to see Donovan in action again, along with whatever new creations Capcom can come up with. How about a Vampire slayer? Or a Grimm type character that hunts Darkstalkers. My take with SFxT was that it was a test game, to try out new things. Things they might use in Darkstalkers 4, like gems. Gems would be severely disappointing though. I also like how Skullgirls allows you to have a team of 1-3 characters, I think that might work in DarkStalkers as well. I wonder what Capcom and Ono have planned for the next fighting game. There will be a new fighting game from Capcom next spring. Capcom is gonna milk the shit out of this genre again this decade.
Halo Wars 2
C'mon Microsoft! Put a studio together and let's get it done. Halo Wars is one of the greatest games ever on the Xbox. I'm still playing it today. 20 hours this week, 71 hours this month. What I'd like to see in Halo Wars 2 are more factions. The flood for one and maybe something original. You could split the brutes off or just create another new race. Halo 4 is coming out and it's gonna have a new race of aliens in that game. More maps would be nice or just maps that could be used universally through 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3. Locking units down would be great. Area patrols. A sniper class should be added to the regular marine squads. I could go on, but honestly I just need more maps for the original Halo Wars.Read full story...

Thanks to Azrael once again @shoryuken.com forums for the translation!
How is everyone doing? It still doesn't feel like the New Year. But today I feel like I'd like to eat some New Year's dishes.
This is Tsukamoto.
If you're talking about Street Fighter, there are plenty of songs that are instantly recognizable that you want to sing along or hum to! So then, today we'll call on the Sound Creator Mr. Tomozawa to represent the sound team who creates these famous songs and sound effects.
Well then, please introduce yourself.
Nice to meet you, I'm the Sound Creator, Tomozawa. Continuing from SFIV, working together with the Sound Designer Mr. Endo I'm in charge of everything related to sound. My personality is that of a shut-in. As my job entails making sounds, I isolate myself so I don't bother everyone else. I also had the flu, so that played a part. At home, I'm in charge of babysitting, so that also contributes to my personality.

Today we look into the uniqueness of girls who play video games.....for real. Not the "Show me how to play, it looks like fun" type but the kind that make you say "Whoa there's a girl at this tournament?".
While over the years the quantiity of girls playing video games has increased, the idea of girls playing competitively still brings a feeling of astoundment. We've all seen it, a girl walks in to pick up the controller or gets online and you hear her voice and immediately you wonder "Who's this girl?'. Even more so at tournaments, guys stare in wonder at the girl with a tournament fight stick.
Many times people may often wonder why enough girls don't play video games. And in truth, it has to do more with responsibility than anything else. To be frank, most girls don't play video games quite like guys do due to the fact that their concerns are directed towards survival. Bills of the house, food for the family, and work. Other activities that draw their attention are shopping, exercise, friends, and don't even get me started on boyfriends. Some girls may never really get into video games because of these factors and may view them even as a loss of time. Others, play them casually, getting together with friends and usually playing video games that involve a large group of people such as Guitar Hero, Mario Party, etc.
But while some girls may not play video games, there's no denying the growing appeal in video games, and slowly but surely, girls are beginning to have an increase of interest. More commonly than most, girls begin to play video games usually when they are introduced to them. With a large number of them due to their boyfriends. Lots of men have tried it at least once. They have a love for their woman and a love for video games. Why not put them both in the same room? Joy! :D From here on out it goes one of two ways depending on your method, you either do it wrong and beat them at EVERYTHING xD resulting in the girl losing total interest in video games because she's "not good" at them, or, you start them off on a gradient. A game that's simple and they end up winning. Everyone enjoys winning, that's a simple fact. If the girl wins at a video game, it will bring that feeling of accomplishment and by consequence increase her confidence in playing, resulting in her being more open to play more. As her skill increases, you can introduce her to more complicated games and so forth.
But what if the girl in question is already good? What if she's damn good!? These types of girls have always had great appeal to guys of the gaming world. Looks and personality of course play a role, but it's like 100 instant brownie points if a girl is great at video games. Many times if the girl is appealing enough, guys will try their luck and try to talk to them. Confident guys usually get a conversation going. But as any one guy who's tried to play mack daddy pimp would know, you never go in assuming she's yours from the get go. Of course, don't be so shy you don't even talk to her like 65% of the guys at tournaments do xD These girls are like any other girl aside from the fact that they have video games in common with you. They like to be treated with respect and like it when you make them laugh. Under some circumstances though, video games have brought men and women together and have even resulted in marriage. Such examples have been seen where they met online while playing a game. Personally, I have a friend named Jay whose mother met her current fiancee on XBOX LIVE.
In conclusion, girls that play video games are a pretty solid group, ranging from casual to hardcore. I myself can appreciate a girl who has the committment to be lethal at a video game. It makes it easy to kill two birds with one stone, you have a girl over AND you get to play video games. About the only thing missing is a feast. But then again, as gamers, who doesn't have a feast after we play :D
This is a video about a japanese girl playing competitively at Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. I admire her patience and technique.
Oni has reached the pinnacle of his power. Gouken has the Power Of Nothingness, able to neutralize offensive energy. It is now time to find out the victor of this fight.
Reader's Note: The following story has a two part fight sequence between Oni and Gouken. You can play the 2 music videos when prompted to in the story. Oni's Theme during the 1st part, and Gouken vs Ryu Theme (my choice for the 2nd part for better effect) for the second.
Birds are chirping, the waterfall flowing below the cliff is soothing. Gouken meditates at it's peak.
A master like no other, Gouken trained 2 of the world's best fighters, Ryu and Ken, as well as Dan who could win fights if all he had to do was use his mouth
Gouken's mind focused, ready, he has senses the monstrosity approaching. In the distance, there are footprints walking through the grass, trees begin to collapse one after another. Gouken remember's his brother in the days when they trained with their master Goutetsu, but Akuma was now no more...Gouken's eyes open as he then turns around to face his most dreaded adversary.
There only 20 feet away, Oni stood with a malicious smile. (Activate Oni Theme video) Oni: Heh heh heh...hahahaha.....AAHAHAHAHA! Your BROTHER has surpassed you, Gouken!" Gouken: YOU, are no longer MY brother demon! You have given up all that has made you human and for THAT I will not hold back!" Oni jumps towards Gouken and comes down with a devastating blow, but Gouken jumps of the cliff over the water fall and towards the distance. Oni follows. Gouken now stands in an open field, free of obstacles. He readies himself.
Oni steps forward (Oni) "I am Oni! And I shall grind beneath my heel....all that exists!"
The fight begins! Oni fires a Gohadoukenl at Gouken!
Gouken prepares to neutralize it....but the fireballs disappears in smoke! It shortly drops Gouken's focus in his confusion and in that moment Oni rushes in with a lighting fast slash! But as a master of defense Gouken barely manages to block it and moves away. Gouken then counters with his own hadouken as he knows Oni's will only disappear after some distance. But Oni then unleashes his Roaring Thunder Hadouken (electric fireball)! The two hadoukens clash, but the electric fireball overwhelms the other and speeds over to Gouken! He dodges the blast and the ground is left destroyed and electrically charged. Oni jumps into the air and comes down on Gouken, but Gouken counters with a Shoryuken!......But within the air Oni floats backwards! Gouken is left punishable! Oni then charges his Gohadouken and fires it full force! Gouken lands and Hurricane Kick floats over the powerful fireball!
Oni speeds forward and unleashes a Shin Shoryuken on Gouken!
Gouken does his best to block it but is thrusted in to the air by the impact! Oni rushes into the air as Gouken is falling. Oni unleashes in the air his Meido Gohado! His most powerful dark fireball!
Gouken lands and looks up! (EXPLOSION!) The ground is destroyed and leaves a crater, the grass is now dirt, and there is a huge cloud of smoke. Oni: "AHAHAHAHAAHAHA! SUCCESS! YOUR TIME...HAS COME!" The smoke begins to clear, Oni awaits to see his victory with a deceased Gouken.
(Activate Gouken vs Ryu Theme music) A shadowy figure stands in the smoke, Oni looks with curiousity. A voice speaks "I know what I must do!" Gouken LIVES! And with the full Power Of Nothingness has ABSORBED the Meido Gohado and added it to his own!!!!! Oni: "Whaat??" Oni's face displays disappointement. Gouken: "ONI! YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN TERRORIZE THIS PLANET!!!" Gouken disappears and appears point blank in front of Oni! Gouken unleashes the full power of his Denjin Hadouken with his new found power!!
Oni is taken by surprise and instant attempt summons another Meido Gohado!!!
(Gouken) DENJIN..(Oni) MEIDO...(Gouken and Oni) HAAADOUUUKEENNN!!!!!!!
The entire area is wiped out. Not a single sign of life in existence for miles. But who survived??? 500 miles away from the blast Oni finds himself in standing, the blast knocked him away from the battlefield. Is Gouken dead? Is he truly rid of his past?? For now he grins triumphantly for either way he now thirsts to find more adversaries to obliterate and should he find Gouken alive, he will finish the fight.
Opposite of the battlefield, 500 miles in the distance, Gouken stands amist the most beautiful waterfall. Unsure of his victory, Gouken remains at peace with himself. Oni has rose to a level of power unlike any other, yet Gouken survived. And that was the lesson Gouken has always taught, to concentrate not on defeating your foe, but on obtaining your own victory. To Gouken, regardless if Oni was destroyed or not, this day he would enjoy peace.
In Fable III it doesn't matter what clothes you have on. So you can walk around naked if you want and make pies.
The princess in Fable III has huge breasts and it is an absolute pleasure to watch her do just about everything. Including pie making. This video is for Jimmy. Enjoy.

All the gear you need to be a master crafter for level 25-29. HQ style. This gear can easily last you 10 levels. With the right Materia added you can be an HQ master, like me. Remember DoH gear is cross class. I'm leveling all crafts to 50. Save $$$!
Before I even started I check the MP to see how much it would cost me to just buy this stuff & not waste my time crafting. Well 1; I need the XP for Weaver & Goldsmith. 2; I’ve been collecting HQ Diremite & a few other mats for a week. Plus all my other crafts are at level 24 so I can make any miscellaneous piece I need on the fly.
On the MP these items HQ were costing well over 30k on Malboro server. I’m fairly certain I put this entire set together for less than 20k using HQ mats.
Head: Velveteen Wedge Cap Lv. 27
Body: Velveteen Coatee of Crafting Lv. 26
Hands: Velveteen Shortgloves Lv. 28
Waist: Velveteen Half Apron Lv. 28
Legs: Velveteen Bottom Lv. 28
Feet: Velveteen Gaiters Lv. 28
Neck: Silver Choker Lv. 29
Ears: Horn Earrings Lv. 25
Wrist: Silver Wristlets of Crafting Lv. 26
Rings x2: Silver Rings of Crafting Lv. 27
A level 26 WVR & GSM can make all of this stuff no problem. Providing HQ materials are used to make it easy on them. I highly recommend always crafting for HQ mats, if you want for sure a HQ outcome.
Total list of materials used:
Dew Thread 6
Undyed Cotton Cloth 2
Undyed Velveteen Cloth 10
Silver Ingot 9
Iron Ingot 1
Mudstone Whetstone 2
Silver Rings 2
Antelope Horn 1
Aldgoat Leather 2
Give or take a few mats here & there. Maybe a couple extra, just in case there is a miss. I think you’ll be good tho.
*I'll add an update later on the Materia I used.
End stats were 172 Craftsmanship. 183 Control. 278 CP.
If you’re interested in this set & want to save $$$ contact me on Malboro server.
