Running Man Challenge: Destiny Version

 

 

Guardians are both filled with the traveler’s light and light their feet – true fact.

What Backlash does – WatchMojo.com

Yep our Backlash does other things on the internet, like freelance listing work for Watchmojo.com. Check out his latest work, the Top 10 Donkey Kong Games. Donkey Kong Jr is obviously number one, but let’s find out.

 

This just in (or not) – Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, fractures jaw of former Pro-Wrestling Heavyweight Champ.

 

Okay, so if you’re not a fan of professional wrestling, then you probably missed Hugh Jackman making a guest appearance on <WWE Raw Supershow. Yep the Emmy and Tony award winning actor was the show’s guest host mainly there to get a cheap pop (a cheer caused by shameless schmoozing) out of the audience and get free publicity for his latest film.

 

All of a sudden jerky ex-World Heavyweight Champion, Dolph Ziggler and his manager Vickie Guerrero come out to confront the Wolverine star (calling him Batman while he was at it). This all boils down to a match between Ziggler and WWE fan favorite and internet celeb, Zach Ryder, with Jackman in Ryder’s corner. When the easily distracted ref is, well distracted, Jackman winds up his right fist, smashing his adamantium bones right in Ziggler’s chops, helping Ryder get the W.

 

 

 

Well a day later, Ziggler tweeted on his Twitter page:

land in Bikini Bottom 9:30 am, MRI scheduled for 1 pm…..possible fractured jaw #thanksBatman

 

and

 

hairline mandibular fracture. Guess i’ll put my chipotle in a blender for a few weeks, its not ballet #HEEL > heal.

 

 

Fortunately all Ziggler needs is a special mouth guard and he’ll still be able to wrestle. But this goes to show you, you don’t mess with a 6′ 2 Aussie who played a savage mutant with razor sharp claws and who was taught to box by boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard.

 

Well that’s all I got, til next time, this is TBL, hoping my next post won’t be two months later.

Armada’s Fighting Game coverage from the San Diego Comic Con

 

Hi, there True BackLash, back again. Man oh man, for a convention dedication to comic books and media related to comic books, the amount video game coverage at this year’s San Diego Comic Con is staggering. If I talked about it all, then Bronze would have nothing for him to cover and that would be just inconsiderate. Besides looking at some the coverage of the fighting games alone is more than enough to wet my appetite. Today, we take a look at the latest DLC character announcement for Mortal Kombat (9), preview a the latest installment in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise as well as the highly anticipated Street Fighter X Tekken and reveal a once thought dead fighting game series that is hinted at resurrection.

Well enough with the banter, let’s get to it.

 

 

 

 

Mortal Kombat: Freddy Kruger announced a secret 4th DLC character

 

 

Seriously, this is no joke, the mass murdering, dream invading demon from the Nightmare on Elm Street film series is the final character of four added to Mortal Kombat (for those not keeping track, MK vets Rain and Kenshi as well as new Shao Khan minion, Skarlet, were the other three). While I have mixed feelings about his inclusion for various reasons, he’ll be right at home in the game. Kruger will be available to download for the PS3 and XBox 360 versions of the game on August 9th, 2011.

 

 

 

 

 

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: 1 new game + 12 new characters = forty more dollars (American)

 

 

Well just like Capcom replaced Street Fighter IV with Super Street Fighter IV instead of making DLC for the former, Capcom does it again replacing Marvel vs. Capcom 3:Fate of Two Worlds with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. On the bad side MvC3 classic becomes a tacky coaster, unless you can trade it in for credit at a video gaming store. Along with that that’s $40 extra needed to get the new characters and features. Eh, what can you do? The characters introduced for this recent installment are Strider Hiryu, Firebrand, Frank West, Phoenix Wright, Vergil, and Nemesis from the Capcom side and Iron Fist, Ghost Rider, Hawkeye, Nova, Dr. Strange and Rocket Raccoon from the Marvel side. Game’s set to drop November 15th, 2011.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Street Fighter X Tekken: A New Era of Combat is Here

 



A 2D game with crazy ki attacks vs a 3D game with attacks closer to real life? Hmmm, why didn’t I think of it? Anyway, Bronze did a piece on this game already, Characters introduced before SDCC were Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Cammy, Guile, Abel and Sagat from Street Fighter and Kazuya, Nina, Hwoarang, Marduk, King, Bob, and Julia from Tekken. Bronze also reported that Cole McGrath PS3 and PS Vita exclusive. Announced at SDCC were Street Fighter’s Dhalsim and Final Fight’s/Street Fighter’s Poison and Tekken’s Yoshimitsu and Steve Fox. It’s also implied that other Final Fighters Hugo, Cody, Guy and possibly Haggar will make it into the game as well. The game hits the shelves, March 2012.

 

 

 

Darkstalkers: IT’S ALIVE!!!!

 

 

For those who have waited for over 10 years for a proper sequel, it’s looks like it’s now time. Street Fighter producer, Yoshinori Ono stated that the Darkstalkers series is not dead during the Street Fighter X Tekken panel. G4TV.com takes it a step further and says that a game is being worked on. This is so nuts, I hope we see some progress soon. For the occasion I have the ending theme song for both the Darkstalkers anime and american cartoon series Trouble Man. Have a listen and enjoy.

 

 

Well that’s all I got folks, til’ next time, this is TBL saying take care, and get thumbs ready for combat.
