Yet another Scott Pilgrim reference, funny how I got into this whole mess because of these visual promotions. I took to the books soon after, and were read upon after a mire few days had past from the first viewing for the first trailer.
I'm certainly looking forward to this, for the game references are just brilliant and the whole concept is hilarious, perhaps I should do that cosplay idea I had just now.
After only a mire two months of constant Scott Pilgrim references, I seem to have found myself becoming increasingly obsessed with this franchise. The comics, the movie, and now the game based upon the comics to be released in conjunction with the motion picture of the same name. Have to say, I certainly never expected this to be the final product, shall never doubt Ubisoft again.
I really do love me some 2D side-scrolling brawling action, the added four player co op option has only but increased my stern interest in the game, and will no doubt involve late nights with a slice of pizza in one hand, and my trusted controller in the other, you had me at hello Mr Pilgrim!
An all inspiring trailer to compliment a game which has seen mass amount of gamers clawing (not literately) at the feet of the develops to make it happen after many years of absence, and who said the 'beat em up' genre was dead?, they should be ashamed of themselves! :D
Deadpool seems to have emerged has a personal favourite of mine. Voiced by the talented Nolan North, he's certainly the Dante of the Marvel universe, the ying to his yang, the peanut to his jelly, and so on and so forth..........

After getting caught up in the whole 'talking' escapade with regards to what games I appear to be somewhat interested in, I decided that it was to become a necessity to compile a list of games I can look forward to this year; and possibly next, seems it turned out to be a little bigger then expected. Any-who here is the list so far:-
Super Street Fighter IV
3D Dot Game Heroes
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Sin and Punishment 2
Metroid Other M
Dead Rising 2
Batman: Arkham Asylum 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 4
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
The Last Guardian

Perhaps now I can stop talking about Street Fighter, and actually mention other games after this post..........not a chance, but I shall attempt to comply. After months of awaiting the inevitable it's almost upon us, haven't been this excited since.......well last year, perhaps I should take up a new interest in games.
It's good to see the characters all given the opportunity to have their short stints in this trailer, the new concept art for them is (in my opinion) better than before, and the jovial music to cap it all off was just marvelous. The plan of action for me personally, is to improve upon my SFIV skills with Sagat, El Fuerte, Cammy and Sakura, and gain new one's with Dudley, Adon, Juri and Hakan.
I now must await the game that has plagued me all this time, and yet it's arrival is the only cure.......that was a dumb way of putting it I'm sorry.

It's the video i've been waiting for all this time, a complete look at all the new ultra's in SSFIV, now my existence can continue with a purpose, owning game of 2010 so far; quite the statement I know.
It could be said though that I am a little dissapointed with the fact a few of the characters now have ultra's that are pretty much identical; i.e Gouken and Sakura, but it's not as if you HAVE to use these all the time, it's great that you have a choice to differ between two sets for fights depending on which one you feel you can do the most damage with, or maybe just the one that looks cool.
My personal favourites would have to be El Fuerte's newest, Zangief's newest, Rufus newest, Dudley's first and Hakan's second, the latter for being just the funniest position you could ever find yourself in. In a way I can find myself becoming likened to Balrog's newest aswell, it might be three hits but my gawd you could feel that one all the way from Japan. I'm almost certain that for most players, they will see few of the newest ultra's to end up as a useless tool, rather to have the sequence be completed for them; going by Youtube comments, but I guess Capcom want to test even the most profient player into finding a use for it, so get use to it.
A thankyou is in order to PlayJamUK for making the video, and perhaps i'll freeze myself to skip the wait for the game.......what?, a month is quite a while in my book :/
