We all waited for Capcom to finally announce the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for XBLA and the PSN.  Now that the wait is over, they have unveiled what the new MvsC2 is going to offer, and Sony’s official Playstation blog had a surprise up it’s sleeve.   PS3 owners in North America will be able to download the demo on April 30th, with UK owners given access shortly after.

That’s right, this Thursday you can finally curb that 2D fighting appetite.

exit2

Have you ever wanted to be a fireman, but didn’t have the physical fortitude? What about trying out for the Police Squad, only to find out you didn’t have the dexterity required?

Should you consider signing up for this high-risk career on the Xbox Live Arcade? Read on to find out.

As if we didn’t know it was already coming, Konami officially announced today what could potentially be the end of the world. Zombie Apocalypse is coming “sometime soon”. The downloadable title is being developed by Nihilistic. It is a multi-direction shooter in which players use both analog sticks to control movement and aiming. Yes, it’s a game…not the end of the world.
