The Capcom sanctioned fan game that nobody saw coming, Street Fighter X Mega Man, is now available on Capcom Unity’s Mega Man Group page. The game, which released today in honor Mega Man’s 25th Anniversary, pits the Blue Bomber against the likes of Ryu, Blanka, Chun-Li, C.

Before criticizing something, it’s usually smart for one to come clean about any direct and indefensible hypocrisy associated with it. That’s me. I’m writing this article as someone who preordered two copies of “Mass Effect 3,” which came out March 6.
Video Games Are My Life
How ya doing? The name is Cory. Since I was 3, I have been playing video games. It all started with a NES, and now I own over 20 video game consoles. Gaming is my obsession that I can enjoy by myself, or with my closest friends. I started For the Love of Gaming for the simple fact that I like to express my opinion on the latest games. When events like E3 hit, the world stops for me. I do nothing by take in all of the gaming goodness that is being reveled. Video games are my life, and I spend every minute thinking about them.
Favorite Game: DOOM

Bethesda games are renowned for two very distinct traits: Having large, open worlds that give players a level of freedom unheard of in most other games, and bugs and glitches that can be either game-breaking or hilarious. It’s safe to say that their latest offering, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, doesn’t disappoint in these two areas. However, does it live up to previous games in the Elder Scrolls series, or is the Dovahkiin a dud? Read on to find out.
2012 will be the year that Nintendo strikes first in the next gen console war. While we have no idea what Microsoft and Sony’s next consoles will be like, we have a lot of information on the WiiU. Many people have stated their opinion that it’s just too late for the WiiU, and I would even agree to some extent, but Nintendo can make the WiiU successful.
The WiiU focuses on one thing to sell it, the tablet controller. Nintendo did the same thing with the Wii and the Wii-mote, and it worked flawlessly. Many people bought the Wii because of the idea of motion controls, and Microsoft and Sony even made their own motion controller schemes to compete against Nintendo. The WiiU tablet is a whole different type of gimmick, and Nintendo is hoping they can once again innovate rather than directly compete against the competition, but is it too late for Nintendo?
The WiiU tablet is exciting many gamers and developers for good reason. Nintendo is expanding the idea of the DS, and bringing it to the console space. Having 2 screens opens a whole new world for gaming. Imagine playing Madden and never having to leave the field. You could pick all of your plays right from the tablet. Same goes for Zelda, being able to select all your items without having to access another menu can make even more mind bending puzzles. A second screen can really push gaming to the next generation, but the tablet can do so much more.
Nintendo has already said that the tablet will have an internet browser, and it will have some sort of video chat functionality. We also know that you will be able to stream game play from the console to the tablet, providing game play even when your TV is occupied. Nintendo will also be making the leap to HD, and it will be bringing all of its franchises with it. While all of the features sound great, Nintendo is still playing catch up, but there are a few things Nintendo can do to make a huge impact, and truly build a console that people will want.
