The Assassin Stealthily Expands Monday Night Combat’s Roster

The anticipation leading up to Monday Night Combat’s August 11th release is getting to be too much. Another character has been revealed after the probably unstable Sniper's unmasking, and she’s likely to put the rest of them to sleep. She’s silent, deadly, quick, and a surgeon with her work - the Assassin joins the ranks of quirky characters in the Monday Night Combat lineup. Better get to her before she gets to you or it's gonna be messy.

Capcom Looking to Increase Resident Evil Production

Let's face it, a lot has happened between the years of great Resident Evil titles. From the change of scenery from the Mansion and Racoon City to the far reaches of Spain and Africa, to the inclusion of co-op in on rails shooter The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil 5. It now looks like Capcom wants to speed up the growth a bit by releasing a new Resident Evil game every 2 years or so, instead of approximately every 4 years.

New Gears of War 3 Trailer is Fan Made, But You Wouldn't Know It

The Gears of War series has a long tradition now of amazing trailers set to some emotional music.  It all started with the infamous Mad World trailer for Gears 1 followed by the How it Ends trailer with Gears 2.  Gears 3 so far has had the Ashes to Ashes trailer, again, another emotional and moving look at the game.  All of these trailers had Epic Games at the helm to guide their creation using official assets they had on hand, and while the latest trailer may look and sound the part it's actually a fan made tribute using the Unreal Development Kit.

Donkey Kong Beats Mario, As Far As Co-Op Is Concerned?

Thos of you who are longtime readers might remember my review of New Super Mario Bros. Wii last fall.  To summarize, I felt the multiplayer was chaotic and messy, though fun at times, and it didn't feel very cooperative to me at all.  I still stand by that review, though others obviously feel differently.  Apparently, I'm not alone in my assessment of that title: Kotaku's Stephen Totilo mentions many of the same issues.
