Street Fighter 4 PC may come with MadCatz joypad this Summer

Sexy Femme Fatale Street Fighter IV costumesStreet Fighter 4 was finally released in North America for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in February.

For some reason you're holding out for the PC version, now at least you have some idea of how long you'll be waiting.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com (via Shacknews), Christian Svensson, Capcom vice president, business development and strategic planning, said the game should be released by the summer... although we can't say he sounded entirely convinced by his own statement.

World in Conflict- Soviet Assault release date set for March 13th

world+in+conflict+soviet+assault+PCGamersHell spotted that the Ubisoft's UK listing for Soviet Assault has the game dated for March 13th.

The expansion to World in Conflict will be released in boxed form as the World in Conflict Complete Edition, which will include the original game in addition to Soviet Assault, although those who own the original will be able to download the expansion online.

Soviet Assault switches sides, with players following the events of the original game from the perspective of the Soviet invaders. You can expect a new campaign, four new characters, extra multiplayer maps, and likely more.

World in Conflict was released in September 2007 to high acclaim, so this expansion's been a long time coming. March 13th, comrades.

Halo Wars makes into (some) stores - say Bungie - Plus amazing halo screenshots poster download

halo screenshots posterFor those fortunate enough to get Mythic Map Pack codes early and those picking up Halo Wars LCE as it hits retailers, the Matchmaking hopper for the Mythic Map Pack, dubbed Team Mythic, is live and looking for soldiers. For everyone else, the counter is still ticking away towards an unstated date set sometime in the not-so-distant future.

If you find yourself in the waiting-it-out camp, we're going to try and make your Mythic-less days just a little more bearable. Over the next five weeks, we'll examine and explore some of the Sandbox variants that will make their way into Halo 3's matchmaking stable when the Mythic Map Pack becomes available as DLC over the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

The lone exception to our plan is Tundra, the only custom Sandbox variant you'll find inside of the Team Mythic Playlist right now (unless you count the Grifball arena). Since it's already in play, let's take a look, shall we?

Conduit video game will no longer using Wii Motion Plus...

the conduit video game wiiHigh Voltage's Eric Nofsinger has confirmed in an interview at New York Comic Con that their upcoming Wii Exclusive FPS title The Conduit will no longer make use of the Wii Motion Plus Peripheral. The shooter was confirmed to be making use of the new technology late last year but new developments have seen the compatibility of the peripheral dropped.

According to Nofsinger the main reason behind the removal of support for the device was due to the fact the game was built from the ground up for use of the Wii Remote alone and that Wii Motion Plus really didn't add much to the experience. Eric also said that when the peripheral was included it didn't have many uses while in gameplay and that it felt "tacked on".

The removal of support for Wii Motion Plus is not exactly a surprise. It has been proven in the past that First Person Shooters on the Wii can have great controls with the standard Wii Remote setup. The new peripheral does increase motion detection to a 1:1 ratio but it isn't a necessity for the FPS genre.

What make a horror video game scary?

alone in the dark horror gameGame Set Watch asks the question...

Horror games have had an interesting, if not bumpy, past. The last 20 years has seen the genre develop, die suddenly, return to life like a zombie, and escalate to mainstream proportions, surpassing even horror movies as the hair raising entertainment medium of choice.

My first experience with the horror genre was on the PC, with Hugo’s House of Horrors: an adventure game that had its tendrils primarily wrapped around the pillar of horror, no matter the snippets of humor that managed to rear its ugly head.
