Holiday outlook – Zombies, bikinis, Lara

I’ve been waiting to post about the US release of Onechanbara for the 360 until there was more info, mainly a solid release date other than “holiday 2008”. The official page is semi-down as of this moment, which could mean an update is imminent. Or that the game is cancelled?! In any case, if you missed the announcement, now you know!

Never got around to picking up Tomb Raider Anniversary, but might try to sneak it in before the release of TR Underworld based on this snazzy costume compilation video.

Custom character heaven

I’m sure there are tons of different message boards posting custom creations, but the only one I’ve checked regularly is the NeoGaf one. Some truly amazing ones in that thread. Both custom creations shown here are from the thread.

I’m still in the process of unlocking every possible item in the Tower of Souls so I haven’t made too many “funny” characters. Most are just custom versions of existing characters configured to do well in certain challenges.

I’ll post some of my own as soon as I as I can!

Soul Calibur IV MEGA GET

The long wait for Soul Calibur IV is now over. I couldn't decide which version I would like the best so it had to be both. I thought the PS3 version would get the most initial love because of the ability to install most of the game to the hard drive, but so far that hasn't really resulted in faster load times. 

I did like the look of the PS3 Hori stick over the 360, plus I already had a DOA4 Hori stick for the 360. I think that's going to be the last arcade stick I get until they go wireless.
