Psylocke DLC for MUA2 on Xbox 360

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 DLC – Carnage

MUA2 DLC  – Carnage Gameplay

Second-rate symbiote Carnage is the first DLC (excluding Juggernaut) for Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Based on the video above, he plays a lot like swift Spider-man with a few Wolverine/Venom tactics thrown in. I’m not a fan of Carnage but having his available for download does make me want to replay the game.

Information on Carnage

Cletus Kasady has a troubled childhood, killing his grandmother by pushing her down a flight of stairs, and torturing his mother’s dog who afterwards tries to kill him and is apparently beaten to the brink of death by his father, who receives no defense from Kasady during his trial. As an orphan, Kasady is sent to the St. Estes Home for Boys, where his antisocial behavior makes him the target of abuse from both the other orphans and the staff. Kasady gains revenge by murdering the disciplinarian administrator, pushing a girl who refused a date with him in front of a moving bus, and burning down the orphanage.

Kasady becomes a serial killer. He is captured and sent to Ryker’s Island prison where he shares a cell with Eddie Brock, who had lost his alien symbiote. Brock’s symbiote soon returns and bonds with him again, and unwittingly leaves behind the symbiote’s offspring (the symbiotes reproduce asexually, once per generation; the children are then of no consequence to the parent, so the Venom symbiote felt no need to inform Brock of the existence of the new symbiote) which gets into a cut and bonds with Kasady’s bloodstream, transforming him into Carnage.He escapes prison, and begins a series of murders, and at the scene of each crime, writes “Carnage Rules” on the walls with his own blood. He is found by Spider-Man, though the hero proves to be no match for Carnage’s powers. In desperation, Spider-Man makes a truce with Venom to fight Carnage. Carnage is defeated with sonic weaponry, but the symbiote lives on because he is merged with Kasady’s bloodstream.

Carnage goes on to recruit an army of psychopathic supervillains including Shriek, Demogoblin, Carrion, and Doppelganger to overtake New York City. They are driven back by Spider-Man, Venom, and a number of other superheroes.

Aside from Cletus Kasady, the Carnage symbiote bonds with Ben Reilly, creating Spider-Carnage, and later the Silver Surfer.

Venom eventually reabsorbs the Carnage symbiote into his own body “for good.” Without the symbiote, Kasady retains the Carnage persona by costuming himself in red paint and continuing his killing sprees, but does so as a normal human, only for Spider-Man to easily defeat him in a fight. Kasady finds a replica of the Carnage symbiote in the Negative Zone.

The Carnage symbiote later spawns a “child” symbiote, named Toxin. Carnage is one of several supervillains trying to escape from The Raft. Sentry finishes him off, flying Carnage outside the Earth’s atmosphere and ripping him apart. According to Iron Man’s computer, Kasady may not have been inside the symbiote when the Sentry ripped it apart.

Final Fantasy XIII – Tokyo Game Show Trailer

This game is just fucking gorgeous.

Final Fantasy XIII looks so fucking intense I can barely contain myself when I see these trailers. When Tetsuya Nomura was asked to created female Cloud Strife, he did that and then some.

Lightning is all awesome quality of Cloud plus a vagina which makes her pure WIN.

Also how cool is it that the summon are also function as transportation? I guess there won’t be any Chocobo riding in this game though. 😦

Super Street Fighter 4 Teaser

There has been buzz about Super Street Fighter 4 coming soon and after reading the Street Fighter 4 Blog and seeing leaked shot of T.Hawk , we finally have some screens and details on Super Street Fighter 4:

Super Street Fighter IV Characters:

Super Street Fighter IV will include veteran fighters from the Street Fighter II, the Alpha series, and Street Fighter III : Dee Jay, T.Hawk, Dudley, Ibuki, Makoto, Adon, Cody and Guy.

I gotta say I’m not impressed with the inclusion of Makoto, Dudley, or Dee Jay. I don’t know anyone who uses these character successful and there are so many other characters that could have included that would make sense to the series  – Karin being at the top of that list.

New Super Street Fighters IV Characters:

Hakan – An Arabic grappler obsessed with oil (I can’t help but think of pornstar Hakan).
Juri – Evil Asian girl fighter working for Seth (As seen in the shots above).

RoboFury – Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2’s Secret Character

All Your Base Are Belong to RoboFury.

RoboFury: All Your Base Are Belong to Us

Sorry not to use spoilers or whatever but I’m really pissed at some decisions the developers of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 have made. RoboFury (as the internet is referring to him) is on the top of my list.  How could they string us along for weeks about this secret character when it is the MUA version of Cyber-Akuma.

RobFury - Nick Fury

RobFury - Nick Fury

I do have to say this – RoboFury looks a lot like Cats (All Your Base Are Belong to Us). Everything from the tacky cybernetic eye patch to the smug attitude, it’s like RoboFury and Cats are long lost brothers. I can only hope the MUA2 scene where RoboFury shows up begins like Zero Wing with Captain America being the Captain and all the other roles going to the supporting cast (I imagine Spider-man as Operator and Ironman as Mechanic).
