One of the unique features of 3D Dot Game Heroes is the ability to create and customize your own personal hero of the game. In anticipation for its May 14th launch, Southpeak Games have come up with an online character builder akin to the one that will appear in the game.

‘Anger’ is the word of the day if you’re a PS3 Dragon Age: Origins fan, as there are numerous complaints that the latest console firmware update – 3.30 – is randomly crashing games.
And when we say numerous complaints, we actually mean twelve pages worth and counting. Eek!
Capcom’s most popular fighting game franchise is known for two main reasons. Great gameplay and frequent revisions. Street Fighter IV hit consoles just over a year ago and revitalized the fighting game genre to an unprecedented level.
After a near 10 year hiatus, Street Fighter was relevant again. Whether you played casually or competitively, the response to Street Fighter IV was overwhelmingly positive. Capcom took a risk and it clearly paid off.
Unsurprisingly, Capcom announced that Super Street Fighter IV was in development last September. Unlike many of the previous iterations in the franchise, this was promised to be a significant upgrade.
So here we are. After months of build up and tons of hype, Super Street Fighter IV has arrived. Is there enough content in Super to justify an updated re-release?
Mega Man is on a bit of a roll lately. Nine and ten brought back the kind of old skool gaming that was common place twenty years ago – in a good way of course!
But what if that style of gameplay isn’t for you? Fear not – Capcom has something ‘rad’ in store.
Prince of Persia: The Forgotton Sands will be hitting stores in May and – as is now customary – there will be a collector’s edition available for you to buy. We normally scoff at collector’s editions because they usually amount to you paying considerably more for a cheap toy and a case that doesn’t fit into your racking. But Prince of Persia’s collector’s edition may well be worth the money. Read on to find out why…
Japanese gaming website Pocketnews has reported that the PS3 has received a minor hardware alteration. The changes include a new version of the RSX graphics chip that uses 15% less power. With the cost of electricity these days, this is pleasing news. Plus, it should help cut down on that dreaded ‘yellow light of death’ which causes your PS3 to overheat and die.
We love Just Cause 2. Sure it has its problems, but they are overshadowed by a huge game map crammed with weapons, vehicles and Easter eggs.
Well the game is set to get a little bit better as Square Enix has announced two DLC packs that will be hitting the PSN over the course of the next month.
We hope you enjoy blowing things up!
Ubisoft seems to have been busy lately and has registered several website domains featuring some familiar names – and one totally crazy one.
The Star Wars game time line is one that is crammed full of ups and downs. Unfortunately 2008s ‘Star Wars: The Force Unleashed’ was a mediocre affair, and didn’t really live up to the hype that surrounded it.
However- the potential was there. Can Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 up the ante?
If you’re planning on buying UFC Undisputed 2010, and live in the UK, you may want to buy the game from HMV.

With the recent theatrical releases of Kick-Ass and The Losers, the action genre has seen a lot of…well, action lately.

Titles such as Ronin, Poseidon, and Sum of All Fears are available for up to 50% off!
There’s also this other movie that is making it’s debut on the Video Store. I believe it’s called Avatar and was only the biggest grossing movie of all time. In fact, it’s so huge that there are no other additions to the store!
