Way to go everyone, you scared Tara's mom away. It's back to just the two of us, so I hope you're happy. Usually Monday is our slow day, but that is not the case today! Max got to take Duke Nukem Forever for a spin (as well as eat pizza and drink beer) and lived to tell the tale. Is the game shaping up to be worth the wait? Our old pal Jonathan Holmes joins us to review Marvel vs Capcom 3, Tara is happy that the Xperia Play/Playstation Phone is FINALLY announced, and theres some new Halo: Reach maps coming. Oh, and piracy.
Destructoid show 52, Dukie edition. Lets go:
Story #1 - Max Scoville Previews Duke Nukem. Stay tuned to Destructoid.com for an extended preview, but after getting 3-4 hours with the game this part weekend, Max is impressed. Very impressed.
Story #2 - The week in releases. Obviously the big one is Marvel vs Capcom 3, but for the strategist out there, there's also Tactics Ogre: Lettuce Clings Together. Err, that's actually Let Us Cling Together. Whatever.
Story #3 - Halo Reach Map Pack Announced for March. Codenamed "Defiant Map Pack," the DLC will be hitting the servers in March, and is packed with 3 new maps.
Story #4 - Toy Fair is happening RIGHT NOW! Go to tomopop.com for all the details.
Story #5 - Xperia Play/Playstation Phone finaly acknowledged and announced by Sony. Packing a 4 inch screen, Android 2.3 (gingerbread), and the Playstation suite - who's excited?
Story #6 - Marvel vs Capcom 3 REVIEW. After a long long wait, it's finally here and Jonathan Holmes has the review for you.
Story #7 - Killzone 3, Crysis 2 leaked. It was an eventful weekend for Piracy, between two huge games getting leaked before their release date, and the rap battle challenge from PS3 Hacker Geohot.
