After the fairly recent release and phenominal commercial success of Injustice Gods Among Us, there is very little down time before WB games set loose the trailer for Arkam Origins, the third installment in the Arkam game franchise. The CG trailer is awesome, take a look for yourself below.

Finally something truly exciting for the fighting game genre. A fresh new Guilty Gear title has been desired out of Arc System Works for quite some time. I mean...a LONG time. Finally they have decided to honor us with a new title. Not only is it stunning, but the character models are in 3D!?! Not 3D like Tekken, but closer to 3D like Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Strom. They are trying to maintain that anime look and feel that has brought the series as far as it has while still taking steps in a new and interesting direction. We don't have much but this small teaser to go off of, but from what we can see, the game is very pleasing to the eyes.

Looks like it didn't take long for me to pump out a video showcasing Nightwing in all of his glory. This is a simple video that focuses on grounded easy to execute combos that are perfect for online play. These combos aren't necessarily flashy and definitely not max damage, but they work and I use them online all the time with great consistency (rollback or otherwise). You can mix and match any most of the stages of the combos to create one you are more comfortable with and start to utilize your own style. Some combos can be altered to create better sets ups and such as well.

Its closing in on the month mark for the initial release of Injustice Gods Among Us and my Dick (Grayson) is getting it done. I've been having some serious fun experimenting and fine tuning my tricks for online play. It isn't all that often that I have fun with a fighting game in the manner that this game provides. Not only do I get to put punks online down, I get to do it with my Dick. There are tons of fighting games out there, but only a select few get to be considered competitive. I think Injustice has it where it counts, and since NetherRealms promises to keep fine tuning the game as each DLC character is released (link to the most recent patch notes), I think we can see the evolution of another contender in the tournament scene. I love SSF4AE2012, but after 4 or so years of it, I like to see a fresh game get hyped up. Especially after the disappointing showing of SFxTK amongst the community.

Okay, so this isn't traditional older ps3 or 360 title. In fact, it's the first time i've reviewed a game that didn't have a hard copy available. But after playing it, I feel that it deserves a slot as a true gem of a game released to the public via PSN. I believe it is an exclusive game to PSN and if you act now, you can get it for the low low price of $0 if you are a PS+ member. Fret not, it's only gonna run you $10 if you aren't so endowed. Malicious is a ridiculously stylized adventure based in the genre of hack-n-slash centered around absolutely menacing end world bosses. This game is not easy, but it isn't so challenging you can't pick it up. Still curious? Click below and read more about it.

Another day, another fighting game release to the community. This time around we have a Mortal Kombat style romp in the DC universe of Injustice: Gods Among Us. The last time MK joined DC for a title we ended up with some complete garbage. A fighter that was barely playable and most certainly didn't have any competitive hopes. Alas, it is a new dawn, and another chance has risen, and with NetherRealm Studios having just come off of their last successful MK endeavor of 2 years ago, there is a lot to look forward to with this title.

Capcom vs. SNK 3 has possibly (April fools in mind here) been recently announced as a launch title for the PS4 sometime in 2014. As a member of the fighting game community I am most certainly excited for this game, and since Capcom vs. SNK 2 was such a huge tournament hit, there is little wonder why someone might be excited for the next (hopefully competitive) step for the franchise. Its been a while since I've talked about a fighting game so I'm pretty excited.
In case you aren't familiar, heres something to give you an idea of what to expect.
Other fighting game staples that have received next gen upgrades have changed fairly drastically. Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter 4, etc. so it wouldn't be surprising to find out that CVS3 would end up being slower and with new systems. The previous KOF feel with exchangable grooves was a fun and unique system, hopefully as more details give way, we will be able to get a better handle on what to expect, not to mention what fighting games on the PS4 can handle. Of course, all of this could just be a not-so-elaborate April fools joke. Wouldn't be surprised either way honestly.
