Daily News - 19th July 2011 - Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Roster, Aliens: Infestation and More Good Uncharted Movie News 

The Full Roster For Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Is Revealed, Makes Me Sad I Hated It

I hated Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. With a passion. And I wasn't the only one who didn't enjoy it. But I've got to appreciate what goes into making the game, assembling awesome as fuck characters from both universes and having them fight it out takes many, many pinches of salt and the "Ultimate" edition of the game will be no exception. The full list of new characters they'll be adding came out and it's a pretty nice selection:

From Capcom:

  • Firebrand
  • Frank West
  • Nemesis
  • Phoenix Wright
  • Strider
  • Vergil

From Marvel:

  • Dr. Strange
  • Ghost Rider
  • Hawkeye
  • Iron Fist
  • Nova
  • Rocket Raccoon

I won't pretend to know who all those characters are, but the fact that Phoenix Wright is in there, along with Nemesis, is epic unto itself. My one major grievance is that these guys weren't in the game to begin with! The roster was hugely lacking in the original, with only 3 unlockable characters, but if these guys had been unlockables in the original I might have actually really liked it. Argh, I hate setting myself up to get my heart broken. Fuck this game! And fuck Capcom!

Imagine taking that TO THE FACE!!!

Aliens: Infestation Revealed For DS

The game will be a side-scrolling shooter for the DS (Note the lack of a "3") and will be co-developed by Sega, WayForward and Gearbox. The companies involved have been keeping quiet about the game for a while... and personally I find it hard to see why. The game doesn't look terrible, in fact games like this usually tend to turn out to be pretty good, but it doesn't look like it's going to be making any Game Of The Year lists. The game will take you back to some "classic" Alien universe locales (as all games taking place in the Alien universe nowadays have to do) and will feature multiple marines to control and no doubt lots of weapons to use to kill the Xenomorphs. The game's scheduled to come out in September, for the none-3D DS.

*Sigh* Look guys, it's the Space Jockey! In an Aliens game! How original!

Neil Burger, Making Our Uncharted Movie Dreams Come True!

Remember that terrible idea for an Uncharted movie David O. Russell had? To have Mark Wahlberg be part of a globe-trotting family of treasure seekers with Joe Peschi and Robert Deniro? Well, good news! Scrap all that! The film's new director, Neil Burger, is starting from scratch, and gave this incredibly encouraging quote:

"Mainly we’re beginning from scratch and going back to the videogame, because there’s a lot of cool stuff, actually, from the videogame, if you know it... It’s really one of the most cinematic video games, and one that has really developed characters. So, you know, there’s a lot of cool, really intense things that, if they work for the film’s story, I want to use them."

And, furthermore, he's come out and said that he knows all about the internet campaign to cast Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake and that he's not ruling anything out, just saying that he'll decide on casting depending on whoever reads best for the part when the time comes. I. Am. Excited! And another excuse to post a photo of Nathan fillion! Squee!

Look at him! He's an action star already!

Frank West will clean house. Never has someone looked that badass with a camera.
