Dreams Come True – A Decade Too Late

MARVEL.

CAPCOM.

INFINITY GEMS (they aren’t Infinity stones, you hacks. Gems. They’re gems.)

Be still my black, black heart. Except…I’ve aged out of fighting games. I no longer have the patience nor the time to memorize combos and ultimate attacks for 30 characters at a clip. My muscle memory is shot! I mean, i’ll still give you a run for your $$$ if you want to break out Tekken (3 OR 5) or UFC Undisputed or Soul Caliber or WWE Here Comes the Pain or any SF2 iteration or World Heroes or Samurai Showdown…but I pretty much drew the line at MvC3 (or rather had the line drawn FOR me, as I  I would get absolutely butchered on the regular)

Now get off my lawn and leave me to my Witcher 3 wanderings. Get too close and I’ll run you through. *shakes canesword*

Trailer Park: Holy Crap, Do I Need to Buy Resident Evil 6?

Totally skipped RE5 but Resident Evil 4 scared me shitless, especially the first time a chainsaw-wielding fat dude with a burlap sack on his head chased me through a creepy village and slashed through walls to get to me.  I was not prepared for that; I really tried to not play that game at night.  Dead Space as well.

What’s the scariest game you’ve ever played?

P.S. I refuse to play Amnesia: Dark Descent.  I like sleeping. Do you? You can definitely find out here.

You have Pictures & Links; I Shall Call You Plinktures. Awww, Plinktures!

Mmmm...veinyHugh Jackman’s first official photo from the sure-to-not-be-a-bomb The Wolverine.

mmm....gimmickyA-Babies vs. X-Babies #1 Variant Cover. If a gimmick has a gimmick, does it evolve, Pokemon-style (Gangam style?) into a wholly new form of gimmick?

WHAT'S IN THE BOX Remember that massive Street Fighter 25th Anniversarybox set we’d mentioned a while back? Well, MTV Geek got their hands on it and went full on gonzo with the picture taking.  Capcom, we’ll here at Modern Borefare will also take one, if you’re offering?

watch out dog!Nintendo Tributes; 21 of ’em. Good thing it wsn’t 23, otherwise the eschaton would have been immanentized.

Alan Moore discusses his new H.P. Lovecraft project.  Uh oh… Lovecraftian hentai in 3…2…1…

All the Borderlands 2 secrets you could ever want! Yes, these are SPOILERS…I have not read them & am torn about it.  The only thing I hate more than missing a secret in a game is having it spoiled for me.  Conflict!

Brief bit of Site News:

We here at Modern Borefare know that the posts have been a little slow lately but please bear with us.  We’ve got a whole flood of stuff in the works that we know you’re going to enjoy.  As always, thanks for reading!

New World Warrior Order

What’s clever about this Street Fighter poster by art superstar (in my eyes, if not yours) Ken Wong is that all of the characters shown are in the order they showed up as playable characters in the series.  Now then, trivia & Street Fighter nerds: which characters showed up first in which games?  Aaaaannnnddd….GO (to the comments section to log your answers).  After that, check out Ken’s website for some truly great art including an epic slug battle that has to be seen to be believed.  (link via Kotaku) After the jump, the most mesmerizing thing  12-year old me had ever seen. And no, not porn.
