Happy Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds release day! Hm, that doesn't have the same ring to it as "Happy Valentine's Day," does it?

Video Blips:

• Capcom reveals the final roster of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds for everyone to gawk at. This trailer still doesn't explain why these characters deem it necessary to beat the crap out of each other, but who am I to argue?

Continue after the break for some stealthy (and not-so-stealthy) Crysis 2 gameplay, the launch announcement of Darkspore's beta, and a disturbing portrayal of Wonderland in Alice: Madness Returns.

 

• Crysis 2's Prophet sneaks and shoots his way across the broken streets of New York City. At least the absence of operational cars got rid of the city's severe traffic problems.

• Amass and customize an army of creatures, only to see them pounded into oblivion, in Darkspore's beta. I'm probably just going to stick with the collecting part.

var so = new SWFObject(“http://cdn.springboard.gorillanation.com/storage/xplayer/yo033.swf”, “mplayer”, “607”, “341”, “8”, “#000000”);

• Committed to an asylum, Alice retreats into her twisted vision of Wonderland once more in Alice: Madness Returns. The Cheshire Cat frightened the hell out of me as a child; I can't imagine how psychotic he'll look now.
