New Releases: Video Games (February 14, 2011)

The long-awaited Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 finally arrives this week, and other games better stay out of its way!

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two WorldsBuy Now!
Marvel superheroes like Spider-Man, Captain America and the Hulk battle against some of videogame maker Capcom’s biggest characters. If this sounds confusing, watching the game being played is like a whole night’s worth of fireworks going off in 30 seconds. (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)


Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds Special EditionBuy Now!
The same game as above, but in a steel collector’s case, with a 12-page comic, two extra characters to play with, and more. Honestly, there have been more special Special Editions. (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3)


Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling TogetherBuy Now!
Don’t be confused by the title — this game isn’t about ogres clinging to each other, but tactics, strategy, political intrigue and hours and hours of leveling up, equipping and fine-tuning dozens of fantasy characters. (Sony PSP)


Dragon Quest VI: Realms of RevelationBuy Now!
On the opposite end of the spectrum from Tactics Ogre is the fantasy RPG Dragon Quest, which is simple, engaging, and still a heck of a lot of fun. And its subtitle is far less silly, too. (Nintendo DS)


Chronicles of Mystery: The Secret Tree of LifeBuy Now!
Beautiful archaeologist Sylvie Leroux looks for a tree that grants immortality in this mystery/puzzle game. A shame, really, because we know a bush that tells you to watch your cholesterol. (Nintendo DS)


Gears of War Triple-PackBuy Now!
If you like videogames where you can shoot evil mutants with a gun that also has a chainsaw at the end of it, you will never find a better value than this. (Xbox 360)



Dance ParadiseBuy Now!
This Kinect game lets you and three friends dance to 40 hit songs, including tracks from Lady Gaga and Rihanna. It’s much more popular than Dance Hell, which features only “Mambo Number 5.” (Xbox 360)


Pirate BlastBuy Now!
Pirate Blast is a cute Wii game about shooting adorable but evil robot pirates, and not a horrible inuendo… as far as we know. (Wii)

  1. Fun fact: The main voice actor in Gears of War is also Bender from Futurama. I saw him in person once performing Marcus Fenix and Bender arguing. It was surreal.
