Show 'em who's boss with your fire, boys.

Some of the stranger special attack cutscenes from Spectral Force 3.

Anita, the Jwwow of Spectral Force:

Culcha, the goblin princess, gobli!

And of course, our favorite... Eunice, who claims to heal to injure others. Until the day everyone's wounds heal...

MODAM in Marvel vs Capcom 3

As Bob discovered, turns out you can hit the right bumper when selecting MODOK to use the MODAM skin. I was joking when i said that they would even consider offering such a thing as DLC, but it turns out it's in the standard game. Totally awesome.

As the assholes on the internet would say, welcome to four months ago.

You want Thor's real costume, eh? Pay up.

Now we know why we couldn't get Thor to look like the real Thor in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. You have to pay extra for that.

I don't mind getting totally new characters via DLC. I'm on the fence about new "skins" for Iron Man to look like Iron Patriot or Captain America in his new Director of SHIELD outfit. But making a character look the way he's supposed to? Not happy about that.

Immediate Update: To be fair, you just can't complain too much about any game that lets you be MODOK! And i'd totally buy a MODAM skin.

Thank You, Spectral Force 3

I heal to injure others.
Until the day everyone's wounds heal...
Until then....Skees Plasnir!

Oh, Eunice!

Smartphone with Gaming Controls

Sony Ericsson is putting out the Xperia Play, a phone with a slide out controller for video games that are too complex for touchscreen controls.

After seeing the odd way they designated controls on Wanyas' phone just for Zelda - a game so not requiring complex controls - it's good someone thought to attach real gaming controls. Plus, all this crap they think of to add to phones gets me that much closer to my portable, 3-D holographic computer/communication device that I've been dreaming of for years. So go to it, I say.

Those better be some smurfing good smurfberries

Via Kevin Drum:

Over the winter break from school, 8-year-old Madison worked to dress up her simple mushroom home on the iPhone game Smurfs' Village. In doing so, she also amassed a $1,400 bill from Apple....But like a growing number of parents, Madison's mom, Stephanie Kay, was shocked to find very real charges from iTunes show up in her e-mail box days later.

....The practice is troubling parents and public interest groups, who say $99 for a wagon of Smurfberries or $19 for a bucket of snowflakes doesn't have any business in a children's game. Though a password is needed to make a purchase, critics say that the safeguards aren't strong enough and that there are loopholes.
