Majesco, Micropose and Kung Fu Factory announced yesterday that they will be releasing a downloadable all-girl fighting game for both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this coming spring. According to the official press release, the aptly titled Girl Fight promises “… hair flying, long legs kicking and the ear-piercing shrill of deadly vixens.”
Although, generally the story in fighting games is often secondary to the actual fighting, Girl Fight does include a backstory that seems vaguely reminiscent of director Zack Snyder’s 2011 film Sucker Punch. It involves a shadowy organization that collects female fighters from around the world and plugs [...]

Fighting game website Shoryuken has posted news for the upcoming fighting game based on the RPG, Persona 4.

Capcom has released some new art for the upcoming Street Fighter x Tekken game. It’s no secret that both games will be very pretty.
I’ve been using Tumblr more and more recently and one of the things that I came across are the “30 Days” of something, be it TV shows or video games. I was going to keep this solely to my Tumblr account but I’ve decided otherwise. So for the next thirty days, you’re stuck reading 30 Days of Video Games.Day 1 – Very first video game:
I know my parents had an Atari when I was born and I must have gotten my little hands on it but the first game that I remember playing is the original Super Mario Bros from 1985 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Even though I don’t have the original cartage from when I was a kid, I do have a copy of the game for my NES that I play from [...]
The fourteen annual DICE awards have come and gone and we have the list of winners for you. Looks like Mass Effect came out a huge winner and took the Game of the Year award, among other awards. I’m a bit sad to see the lack of Dragon Age: Origins on this list but happy to see that Mass Effect, Heavy Rain, Rock Band 3 and other games are getting the credit that they deserve.
This is the award show that gamers need to be watching instead of a certain gaming award show that is broadcast on a certain TV station that has content that we can see online anyway (among other tasteless content that is shown on said awards show). I’m just saying.
Here are your [...]
It’s one of my many goals in life to be a kick-ass house wife. Not like subservient and wearing mom-jeans and wiping snot from kids’ noses with my sleeve. That’s not my game. However, I do feel that when I have company, it is my civic obligation to cover everything from food and drinks to equal playing time and quality seating.
I strive to make my home beautiful, organized, interesting, and most of all welcoming. Deep down, though? I want my husband’s friends (and eventually my kids’ friends) to be a least a little envious of the mad wifery skills I bring to entertaining and comfort. It’s a competition with no other players.
I love [...]
Mortal Kombat’s co-creator, Ed Boon, recently had the chance to sit down with ShackNews to discuss the next iteration in the series, Mortal Kombat 2011. As many of you know, this game first debuted at E3 2010 earlier this year and those in attendance and watching via live stream were blown away by what the game had to offer so early in its life cycle.
One of the things Boon mentioned in his interview was that this is going to be the first Mortal Kombat really targeted towards the hardcore gamer within the fighting genre. However, Boon also made it clear that this should not make newbies to the franchise hesitant as the game will still offer welcoming settings to those types of [...]
