Fire Pro: Mysterio & Altair

Yea, so I missed last week's update. Big deal. Wanna fight about it?

This week is Mysterio from Spider-Man and Altair from Assassin's Creed. One is a crazy special effects guy and the other is an assassin (whether it be 2012 or 1191). Both can be pretty fun in Fire Pro given the right moveset.

Fire Pro: Chris Redfield and Spider-Men

These updates keep getting later and later, but at least I keep posting them. Right? I am thinking of taking a break from posting edit formulas and might start releasing teasers for an edit pack.

Anyway, this week comes the Resident Evil 5 version of Chris Redfield and two Spider-Man edits. Both Spider-Man edits are unmasked. One is a regular unmasked version and the other is a battle damaged version. Enjoy!

P.S. I didn't make a blog post for the last Fire Pro edit release, so here is the picture of them. Kane and the Big Show.

My Top Picks For: June 2009

(All recommendations are based off of my own opinion. Everyone has different tastes in games. If you think something else should be a top pick, let it be known in the comments.)

I haven't done one of these in quite some time. I plan on doing a post like this every month. What am I talking about? Why, helping all of you pick what games are worth your hard earned cash. Living in this economy, it is important to get your money's worth out of your games. As a video game enthuesiest, seeing someone blow $60 on a game like Terminator: Salvation makes me a sad panda. So, let me be your salvation.

There are quite a few games worthy of purchasing this month. A few top sports games, a couple of movie games, and one of the best fighting games of all times gets an upgrade. Too many games to pick from, so I guess that is why honorable mentions exist. So, what is coming out in June that you must buy?

1. Ghostbusters (360, PS3, Wii, DS, PS2, PC) $20-60

After all of these years, we are going to get a good Ghostbusters game. I had a chance to play the PS3 version as this year's New York Comic-Con. Think Gears of War plus the awesomeness of Ghostbusters. That is what you get with Ghostbusters the game. You play as the rookie of the team alongside the original cast of the movies (featuring voice acting by all of the actors as well). There will also be a few different multiplayer modes (360, PS3, and PC). Bust some ghosts with your friends!

2. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (XBLA, PSN) $15

Jill Valentine vs. Zangief. Dr. Doom vs. Ryu. Hulk vs. Guile. One of the greatest fighting games of all time, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, is being re-released with smoother graphics and online play. What more could you ask for? Coming out for $15 is way cheaper than what you have to pay to get a copy for PS2.

3. Prototype (360, PS3, PC) $50-60

Remember Hulk: Ultimate Descrution? That is what you are getting with Prototype. It is a sandbox game set in New York City. Your character, Alex Mercer, can absorb people and become them, turn his arm into a huge blade, and can elbow drop tanks. He is looking around to recover his memory, but who cares. HE CAN ELBOW DROP TANKS.

Honorable Mentions:
1. Fight Night Round 4 (360, PS3) $60 - The next installment of the great boxing series.
2. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (360, PS3) $60 - Don't want the rehashed Marvel vs. Capcom 2? Try this for a breath of fresh air.

Steve Wiebe Falls Short Of Donkey Kong Record, Still Cooler Than Billy Mitchell

All throughout the day, G4 had been broadcasting live (online and TV) Steve Wiebe trying to break Billy Mitchell's Donkey Kong record score of 1,050,200 (achieved in 2007). Wiebe came close, ending his third and final try with a kill screen and a final score of 989,400. So close, yet so far away.

Still, it was exciting to watch and Wiebe kept us on our toes with his play. How those springs never got him, I will never know. I am pretty confident he will break the record again one day. In the meantime, if you haven't seen it yet, check out Wiebe's first journey for the record in The King Of Kong.

update: Just saw a commercial on G4 saying to watch him play tomorrow night. Don't know if it was an old commercial for today or if he is actually trying tomorrow (and each day left of E3). Will keep you posted.

update 2: No more Donkey Kong or Wiebe on G4. Was only for Tuesday. This is what it says on the G4 site.
