Game of the Week….

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes


Now it was hard to pick between all the Marvel vs. games, and too be honest I love them all, but I’ve gone for this version because I play it all the time on my Xbox. Additionally Marvel Vs. Capcom has the edge over Marvel Vs. Street Fighter because you have all the extra Capcom characters like Mega Man and Jill from Resident Evil. Game play wise it is crazy as you are able to play 3 on 3 tag battles and link all 3 of you characters hyper combos together, which not only inflicted an emmense ammounts of damage on to your oppent but also was a treat for the eyes. Everything else abot the game is every you come to expect from a Capcom fighter. For anyone who has not played this I highly recommend you try and find one and play it, because it is a spectacular old school beat-em.

Mortal Kombat II


Starting Bid – £100

End Date – 12th March 2007 20:00 GMT

Not much floating about on ebay this week, in fact there’s quite a bit of tat on there at the moment. I did manage to find a Mortal Kombat II up for sale. It has a very reasonable starting price of £100, and seems to be in good condition. I guess the real reason this game was so popular was the violence that the game specialised in. For anyone not familiar with the game, the idea was to beat your opponent to near death with a variety of brutal moves. For example the character Scorpion would throw a harpoon at you and then drag you over to him so he could beat on you some more. Then when they were almost dead you’d be prompted to “Finish Him”, at which point you would perform a devastating fatality move. This ranged from Sub-Zero pulling your head and spine from your body to Kano ripping your heart out of your chest. Gruesome stuff!
