Polls close in a few hours here on the west coast. After you get that “I Voted” sticker (please vote), sit back and enjoy this video of how elections should be decided.

Thanks to Slate News for posting this a few days ago. It has been no more relevant than it is today.

Street Fighter X Tekken, one of the last frontiers of crossover fighting games, showed in full force at E3. The Capcom booth hosted 6 consoles and a big screen mainstage, complete with fighting sticks and long lines of eager gamers. The Capcom version of this double crossover, the demo featured familiar art style and gameplay from the latest installment of the Street Fighter franchise.

As expected, the biggest adjustment for fans of both titles has to be made when playing Tekken characters. However, it still promises an experience that is on track be one of the greatest crossovers yet.

Today Warner Bros. announced the title for the much anticipated sequel to last year’s blockbuster hit Batman: Arkham Asylum. Dubbed Batman: Arkham City, the new title takes the Caped Crusader out of the loony bin and tosses him into the “heavily fortified” “mini-city” of Arkham.

Aside from the details above, the only other information we have on the game is that it is slated to arrive on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in Fall 2011. Read more… »

As made public last week by Capcom the two largest fighting series are finally going to collide “sometime” in 2012 in the form of Street Fighter x Tekken.

Not much real hard information has been forthcoming since then but that’s hardly surprising if the game is still two years away.

What we have been treated to are a load of new shots from the game and it is looking seriously awesome.  Having never been much of a Street Fighter fan my loyalty lies with the Tekken franchise.  My initial concern is how the team would deal with the different art styles but a few moments with these screens has put my mind at ease.

Is it just me, or is the Mortal Kombat franchise making a huge push this week. Earlier in the week, a video hit the Web showing what appears to be a pitch for a newly rebooted Mortal Kombat film franchise. Today, publisher Warner Bros. announced that it is producing a new Mortal Kombat title, the ninth in the series.

The new game, simply titled Mortal Kombat, marks a return to the classic 2D game mechanics that made the franchise such a hit. Development on the game is being handled by the re-branded NetherRealm Studios (formally WB Games Chicago,) who predicts the title will arrive on the Xbox 360 and PS3 sometime in 2011. Read more… »

Back in September, a very reliable source – Capcom’s own Japanese website for Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom – gave some unintended insight into which characters would be making debut appearances for the North American console release. Four out of five of the rumored characters have already been revealed, but the last revelation finally confirmed the rumor to be 100% accurate.

Earlier this week, Capcom announced that the last new console character would be Yatterman #2, from the eponymous Tatsunoko anime Yatterman. Yatterman #2 is, in fact, a Yatterwoman who controls a giant robot pelican, aptly named the Yatter-Pelican. Hit the jump to see some action screenshots.

Nearly the entire roster for the upcoming Super Street Fighter 4 has been confirmed up to this point. Alongside the old street fighters Dee Jay and T.Hawk, and the newcomer Juri, some old favorites from the Street Fighter Alpha series – Guy, Cody, and Adon – have been confirmed.

However, a Japanese blog indicates that the newest issue of Famitsu will be revealing the remaining five characters left to be revealed in the roster – even though the character select screenshot on the internet shows only four remaining slots.

Evolution, the premiere fighting game tournament in North America, will be held yet again in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, this year, the location is going to be the super upscale hotel/casino, Caesars Palace. In previous years, the organizers of the tournament needed to book a location and work out reservation deals with a hotel. Holding the tournament at Caesars Palace provides gamers with a venue and lodgings as close to the action as they can get.

For the uninitiated, the Evolution Championship Series is the biggest and most popular fighting game tournament in America, and possibly the world. Over the span of three days,  tournaments for at least six games are held, and competition from all over the world comes out to play. None of the games being played have been announced yet, but one can be certain that Super Street Fighter 4 and Tekken 6 will make their debut appearances. Get hype!

Even as someone who is into fighting games as a competitive medium, I still find myself strangely excited about this news! This week’s issue of Famitsu revealed that Super Street Fighter 4 will see a return of the bonus stages of Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 3. The ‘wreck the car’ bonus stage is practically confirmed, but we have yet to see what other bonus stages will be included.

And, for those of you who were hoping for less kitschy news, we’ve got some of that, too. When SSF4 was first announced, it was announced that there would be improvements to online play. The Famitsu article also provided the first news of what new online modes we can expect from the new and improved online experience.
