  2. The International Space Station Is Getting A Servbot Next Year

    Next year, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will send astronaut Koichi Wakata to the International Space Station (ISS). That's not all the nation will be sending to the ISS, though -- in February, Japanese roboticists plan to send a 13-inch-tall humanoid robot to the space station. Equipped with facial recognition technology, the hope is that the no doubt adorable automaton will be useful in helping to carry out experiments on the station, assisting in the mixing of liquids and other simple steps. It will also, of course, be an excellent mascot for the ISS, because seriously, how are there not robots hanging out up there already? Is it a space station or not?

  6. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Gameplay Looks Smashing [Videos]

    I have neither the intent nor the willpower to conceal my fanboyish bias towards the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise nor my high hopes for MvC3, and the gameplay videos coming out of E3 are doing nothing to sate my awe.

    While a disclaimer at the bottom of the screen warns that this is still a game in development, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 looks slick enough in its current incarnation: The new animation looks great, with more of a comic book-y feel brought about by the fonts, the cel shading, and the onscreen pop-ups, the three-character tag teams are just as speedy as before, there are still absurd combos and juggles of many man hits, and Devil May Cry's Dante look as fast and overpowered as you'd expect him to be.

    The game is set for release in 2011.

  7. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is Looking Stunning in Hi-Res [Screenshots]

    We've been jazzed about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 since word got out that it was not only a real game that was going to be made, ten years after Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but was coming as soon as spring of next year. There have been a few shots from the game in circulation since we showed you the trailer last month, but they're outmatched by a stunning set of hi-res screen shots from the game that Capcom dropped last night.

  8. Is this the Trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Update2: Yes, Yes it Is.

    Gamers, you may want to sit down: just three days after rumors of a third Marvel vs. Capcom game surfaced, wildly exciting fans of MvC2, what appears to be a trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has leaked to YouTube.

    It doesn't look like any of this is gameplay footage, but it's a pretty awesome trailer, featuring souped-up battles between Wolverine and Ryu, Iron Man and Morrigan, and The Hulk and Resident Evil's Chris Redfield.

    Upon seeing this, my initial joy and reverence quickly turned to fear: Namely, the fear that all of this cool 3-D footage meant Capcom was going to go all 3D on us for this game. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is, for my money, still the best fighting game of all time, despite its being released ten years ago. It's a complex game, to be sure, with three-fighter teams, absurdly long combos, and dense gameplay mechanics, but it also kept it simple and 2D, a restraint that many of the fighting games of the 2000s lost in favor of blind obedience to 3D and frequently glitchier, more boring gameplay.

    Well -- whew. Nothing's been confirmed yet -- Capcom recently brushed away Joystiq's inquiries with a "We don't comment on speculation and rumors" -- but rumor has it Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be 2D in terms of gameplay, and to the extent it dabbles in 3D, it will be similar to Capcom's Street Fighter 4, one of the best modern-day reimaginings of a classic 2D series.
