Street Fighter fans worrying about what kind of changes Capcom will be bringing to Ultra Street Fighter IV can rest easy, as the newly-announced “Edition Select” mode may quell their fears.
“Edition Select” will allow players to choose all the different versions of the game’s fighters throughout its five-year span. Don’t like how a fighter like Sagat fares in the newest build of the game? One can now pick a previous version of him, selecting from the original SFIV, Super SFIV, Super SFIV: Anniversary Edition, Super SFIV Anniversary Edition ver. 2012 on top of his new Ultra move set.
Ultra Street Fighter IV will be gut-punching its way to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as a digital upgrade this June, with a physical copy for both consoles and PC launching in August. A trailer showing off the quirks of “Edition Select” can be viewed after the break.
Announced earlier this week, Grand Theft Auto V’s latest update will have bustling businessmen and women aggressively marketing their wares. And by wares I mean murder.
The upcoming Business Update will have the thieves and murderers of Los Santos and Blaine County fighting to climb the corporate ladder. The update brings in three new vehicles, a new airplane, two new weapons and plenty of formal and business casual attire for the fleeting entrepreneur.
The new vehicles and weapons will be given to players in story mode and can be purchase in the online mode.
Exclusive items from the Valentine’s Day Massacre Special will become unavailable after Sunday, March 2.
The Business Update will be released March 4. Further information about new online heists and much more will be announced soon.

While the team at Respawn Games is laser targeting their focus on bringing us the utmost highest quality possible with the Xbox One and PC version of Titanfall, the developer has decided to give the job of downscaling the game for the Xbox 360 to Bluepoint Games.
Announced by Respawn Games founder Vince Zampella on Twitter, the team at Bluepoint Games has some past experience up-scaling a number of games to HD, including the God of War Collection, the Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection and the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
So will their experience in making HD ports translate to making an “inferior” copy of Titanfall that retains most of the next gen version’s features? I guess we’ll see when the game comes out on March 11, 2014.
A video recapping the events of Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 has surfaced on Square Enix’s YouTube page. Normally that sounds like nothing super noteworthy, until you realize that the company has added an extra 16-bit flair to it all.
The retrospective features FFXIII’s events all done in the style of Final Fantasy VI on Super Nintendo. That means glorious 16-bit sprites and text, and not those sinful RPG Maker ones you’ve seen in the Android port. There’s even retro-styled remixes of the game’s music in there that’ll tickle your nostalgia bone to the core.
Now before you start shouting “This is what FFXIII should have been all along!” need I remind you that running through 40 hours of corridors isn’t enjoyable regardless of whether its 16-bit or not?
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII hits North American shores on Feb. 11 for PS3 and Xbox 360, with a demo already available on both platforms. Maxwell wrote a lovely preview on it in case you’re still wondering about getting it.
Check out the video after the break. I had to personally stop after they showed off the ending to FFXIII, as my copy of FFXIII-2 still sits unopened on my shelf.
The collection includes Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and its Frank West spin-offs, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Case West and Case Zero. Capcom also promises “Premium Dead Rising DLC content,” which one would assume means all the DLC associated with those games.
The collection is slated for a March 7, 2014 release on Xbox 360 in Europe. No word just yet on a North American release. Feast your eyes on the extra grimy box art after the break.
Ever since it was announced that Konami would be delisting Skullgirls from PSN and XBLA by the end of the year, there was a bit of uncertainty as to when it would become available again. But fear not: developer Lab Zero Games has the answer, in the form of the rebranded Skullgirls Encore.
In a news post on its blog, the indie developer has revealed that the original Skullgirls will be removed from PSN and XBLA by the end of Dec. 31, 2013. The Marvelous AQL-published Skullgirls Encore will subsequently be released on both platforms sometime in Jan. 2014.
For PSN purchasers of the original Skullgirls, Encore will be a free download. While old DLC will not work with this new iteration, the character color DLC bundle will be made available for free for a limited time. On the XBLA side, Encore will be downloaded as a patch to the original Skullgirls, which means all the DLC, leaderboards, achievements and save data will remain unaffected.
The Squiggly DLC that was funded by an Indiegogo campaign several months ago will be made available solely for the Encore version of the game, and will be free to download for three months after its release.
Throughout this entire transition, Skullgirls will remain playable both online and offline, although the game itself will not show up on either platform’s storefront following its delisting.
The world of publishing and digital storefronts is quite a complicated one, but it seems like Lab Zero and Marvelous AQL have everything down pat to ensure that console fans of the fighting game won’t get burned.

Lightning is back for a third time in February 2014 with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, and she’s arriving with a pretty stellar collector’s edition package.
Today, Square Enix revealed the $89.99 package, which will be available exclusively on its online store. The Collector’s Edition includes a fairly extensive 80-page art book that includes a bunch of original artwork from Tetsuya Nomura, which enhances what is normally a typical inclusion in these sort of packages. There’s also a neat piece of DLC that makes Lightning look like Aeris of Final Fantasy VII fame.
However, the most interesting thing in the set is easily the silver embossed pocket watch that features the game’s logo. Good swag like this is basically the mark of a good collector’s edition and it’ll help those who buy it keep track of the presumably long hours they’ll be playing the game.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be available on Feb. 11 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Hit the jump to see a brief trailer for this collector’s edition package.
If Konami gets its way, Skullgirls will soon disappear from Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
As the publishers of the game, Konami has asked both Microsoft and Sony to take the game off of their respective services. This has happened following a fallout in the relationship between Konami and Skullgirls developer Lab Zero.
Unfortunately, Lab Zero only got whiff of the news from Sony after the takedown request was approved.
The de-listings are set for Dec. 17 on PSN and Dec. 31 on XBLA. Lab Zero is currently hard at work getting a build of a game through quality assurance to show to possible publishers, Autumn Games, Marvelous AQL and CyberFront. This new build would reassure the game’s availability on consoles.
While it’s currently unclear if the game will still be playable after getting de-listed, Sony has told players not to worry about having to re-purchase the game or losing it.
Sony has said that people won’t have to re-buy the game through the store, but because this has not happened before nobody knows exactly how the transition will work. Also, this should not remove the game from your hard drive if you already have it, but may or may not cause netplay issues.
Hopefully this gets resolved quickly so fans of the series can continue to enjoy brawling.
An image has surfaced on the internet showcasing six easy steps to enable Xbox 360 backwards compatibility on Xbox One. And as many other things on the internet, it’s a lie.
The six steps gets Xbox One users to reach the developer console and add a line into the code that will endlessly make the Xbox One reboot itself, leading to a bricked and unplayable console.
This is very similar to how people were tricked into deleting their system32 files on their PC to make it “run faster.” Like anything else, if it sounds too good, it probably is. So keeps your wits sharp and always research.
