Box ArtDeveloper:  Backbone Entertainment

It’s Marvel baby. The game that you have most likely seen on store shelves for around $80-100 is now available on Xbox Live (and soon to be PSN) for $15.  Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is unlike most fighting games out there right now, despite having an original release date in 2002. It features 56 playable characters from both Marvel and Capcom universes, each with unique and diverse fighting styles. Comic book fans and video games lovers can rejoice as they see their favorite characters battle. Marvel’s quick and simple game play has made this game easy for new players to pick up, but also has enough depth for pro players to learn and innovate from. So whether you consider yourself a hardcore fighting gamer or a hardcore button masher, this game will give you the satisfaction that can only be gained from fighters.

PNG Daily 4/28/2009: A Dreamcast Classic

Mega Man vs. Ryu vs. Wolverine

We wanted to mention this during the podcast but it was still a rumor.  Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 will be coming to XBLA and PSN this summer with some fancy filtered graphics and online play (via Kotaku).  PSN should be getting an exclusive demo on April 30th.  This used to be a rare title for both the Dreamcast and the PS2 so most people probably didn’t get a chance to play this superb 2D fighter.  You’ll soon have your chance!

The Spoils is a collectible card game much along the vein of Magic:  The Gathering except, in my opinion, a little bit more hardcore and a whole lot more steampunk.  I got a chance to play it a few years ago at Gencon and proceeded to play in a few booster drafts at that very con.  I had a friend that kept me abreast of the happenings with the game and was eventually told that it folded and wasn’t coming back.  Much to my delight, GamingReport.com has a post up stating that The Spoils is back in full swing and has been brought back from the dead by a company called Arcane Tinmen.

Shacknews has a post up about a huge sale at GamersGate.com on Ubisoft published titles.  There are some pretty good titles in that list for not much coin.  Check it out.
