In Anticipation of a Fight

No, this isn’t about a RL (that’s Real Life) fight, though a scrap every now and then would keep my muscles stretched. And that last expression clearly tells you that I don’t get into many “scraps”. 😀

Returning to point, this post is about some very anticipated video games, yes VIDEO games that are finally getting a PC version.

The System works, people!

As very few people know, my own personal brand of heroin favourite game genre is Fighting. There is an intricacy to close combat which is why in Pokemon, the move just punches the shit out of the opponent it is really enjoyable to weave your way in and out of the opponent’s defenses and flailing arms, and land a perfect spinning uppercut on his/her’s flabby chin and watch the bones crack in an X-ray slo-mo close up, and then s/he falls on her/his knees and then flat on the floor, not moving, not even a slight twitch…
Too graphic? Well noT aS gRaPhic as THIS! :

My Eyes! They burn from the gore!

And no. I will not give you a moment to get the children out of the room. Deal with it.

Anyway, the games coming to PC, which I really really really really really want are:
Mortal Kombat 2011 – The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions released just 5 days ago in the USA and 3 days ago in Europe. A PC version has just been mentioned as possible. But I hope. Mortal Kombat has always held my interest for several reasons – mainly the fatalities. Having checked out videos of this latest installment, I was very happy to see a 2.5D interface with power bars, new fatalities, X-ray moves etc. According to what I’ve read, they’ve changed the interface around a lot, borrowing from Street Fighter and Tekken, making the game far more mainstream than it previously was. This is a good thing. This is one game I WANT!

Here’s the Wikipedia article for it:

Tekken X Street Fighter – Take a game with smooth stylish and long combos and put it together with the best shit evar the best shit evar and you get drooling monkey zombies drooling gamer zombies. This, according to Wiki, is the first time that Namco (The company owning Tekken) will be making a fighting game in collaboration with Capcom and I personally can’t wait to pit Jin Kazama versus Ryu and Heihachi versus Akuma. Since both the crossovers, Tekken X Street Fighter  and Street Fighter X Tekken, are in the early stages of development, it is still unsure whether it will come to PC.

Here’s the Wikipedia article for it:

Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition – And lastly we come to THE fighting game of the immortals. Having viewed it on YouTube and briefly played it on a PS3, I KNOW this game is the best. It is a game of skill unlike all other fighting games where a n00b can mash buttons and win (Read: Tekken player with Eddy Gordo). It will be enough if I reproduce one paragraph from Wikipedia (Less: Reference markers):

” IGN gave the game a 9.0 and an Editor’s Choice award, calling it “a superior version of one of the best fighting games around… with a far more developed online mode compared to the original version”. GameTrailers gave the game 9.3, praising it for its improvements over the original. Giant Bomb’s Jeff Gerstmann gave the game 5/5 saying “Super Street Fighter IV adds enough great new content to justify skipping over the ‘Champion Edition’ and ‘Hyper Fighting’ steps in the Street Fighter upgrade path.” play³ gave the game 95%, as they had done with its predecessor.

CVG gave the 3DS Edition a score of 9.0, praising its appeal to both hardcore and casual gamers, as well as having as much content as its console counterpart. Kotaku also praised the port, saying “if you are going to buy one 3DS game, get this.” ”

According to my friend, it will be the Arcade edition of the game that will probably make it to the PC, with two NEW characters hyperventilating being added for that version only.

Here’s the Wikipedia article for it:

Life is good. My annual horoscope DID say that 2011 would be an awesome year for me. 😀

But thank you for taking the time out of your schedules to read my work (If you are my friends, “’bout time, slugs!”). Please feel free to comment, criticize, suggest and appreciate. :)
