Marvel vs Capcom 2 returns to the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) as one of the true classic fighting games. Now sporting an online mode, the question is does Capcom’s classic fighter still have the legs to be a fighting powerhouse in today’s saturated market of fighter games?
The game has three possible modes of play with an arcade mode, training mode and score attack mode. Arcade mode consists of the classic play where you and two other characters from the Capcom or Marvel universe pit it out against each other. Training mode is the perfect way to master the complex moves that the game entails, whilst score attack mode allows you to battle the computer controlled characters for high scores.

Tales of a long, desperate wait

Better late – than never
Tales of Vesperia was released back in the middle of 2008 for all regions apart from Australia and Europe. Yet after constant delays, it has finally made it to our shores to a quiet reception.
So it’s with great relief to say that Tales of Vesperia (the tenth title in the series and first to appear on the Xbox 360 console) is an impressive game and a long time coming for JRPG fans around Australia.

Upon reading this article by Industry Gamer, it occurred to me that whilst the article did indeed have interesting points, the premise of the article is wrong. The PC gaming industry is in fact far from dying.
Sure, the retail sector is taking a plummet but with internet purchases soaring the industry is merely in a transition phase.

GTA:IV The Lost and Damned Review
XBox 360 Exclusive DLC Content – Is It Worth It?
©2009 Noel Schneider
With GTA:IV we came, we saw, we conquered, and to be honest got bored of it pretty quickly, so how will the latest downloadable content hold up? (Check out OXCGN’s Walkthrough)
The Lost and Damned (TLAD) is Rockstar & Microsoft’s exclusive add-on that allows you to play a whole new chapter in the GTA:IV Liberty City universe. You take on the role of Johnny Klebitz, biker and stand in leader for the bike gang “The Lost and Damned” due to the regular leader, Billy Grey, being thrown into jail. (Ed- So it’s much like real-life Melbourne then…).
Things seem peaceful as Johnny ‘K’ has managed to maintain peace with bitter gang rivals “The Angels of Death”; that is until the former head and founder of the club Billy Grey returns from his stint in prison. Immediately he resumes his former post and sets about returning things to the way they were, and essentially all of Johnny’s hard work is thrown out the window.
