The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review: Look Out!

amazingspider-man2-header

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is one of 2014’s biggest movies, and with any summer blockbuster movie comes the inevitable video game based on said blockbuster movie.

Meta Knight officially on the Super Smash Bros. 4 roster

supersmashbros4-metaknightOK Smash fans, you can breathe a sigh of relief – Meta Knight has been officially announced as a playable character for Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and Super Smash Bros. For 3DS. The Kirby anti-hero tops Super Smash Bros. Brawl‘s tier list, and is a favorite among many fans of the Wii outing. Let’s just hope he’s a bit nerfed this time around – he was an absolute beast in the last game.

WWE 2K15 campaign will focus on rivalries with 2K Showcase mode

wwe2k15-boxThe past few iterations of the WWE games have featured a very rich story mode, and WWE 2K15 will be no different. 2K Games announced that the upcoming title’s 2K Showcase mode will feature two of the greatest rivalries in WWE history: the HHH / Shawn Michaels feud from 2002 to 2004, and John Cena’s rivalry with former WWE star CM Punk, which lasted from 2011 to 2013.

Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K Games, had this to say about the Showcase Mode: “No fan can deny the fierce competition marking the notorious battles waged between Cena and Punk. These two rivalries are firmly etched in WWE history, and 2K Showcase enables fans to take part in those memorable experiences.”

The 2K Showcase mode will span 33 matches, and will be presented documentary-style, complete with classic footage and sampled audio from the matches. Furthermore, additional famous rivalries will be available as DLC after the game launches on October 28th.

For those of you who just can’t wait to relive these feuds, here’s a picture of CM Punk and John Cena after the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins for the Stanley Cup.
