If you're a diehard fan of My Little Pony, you no doubt look for any and every single opportunity to tell the whole world that you're a Brony and proud of it. The same goes for female fans of the show, though they lack the super cool nickname; it truly is a man's world, unfortunately.
Thankfully, those of you who watch the latest and favorite episodes via the Xbox 360 have a brand new way of flaunting one's undying love for either Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash, thanks the Microsoft provided canvas for your digital soul, i.e. your Xbox Live Avatar.
Capcom has just released a brand new highlight reel for their upcoming Xbox One exclusive, "Dead Rising 3." It stars producer Mike Jones, art director Alan Jarvie, and executive producer/creative lead Josh Bridge, all discussing at length how they believe their latest effort sets the bar that all other zombie kill-a-thons must now aim for.
Much of it centered on all the different kinds of zombies that one will encounter (each is a precious snowflake we are told), along with all the different ways in which the player can dispose of them. Naturally, much of this due to the power of the next generation console that's driving the show.
Motion pictures that based upon video games are constantly announced, but few ever manage to materialize. And it's just as well, because those that actually end up happening are often disappointing to put it mildly. Though for better or worse, a live action adaptation of EA's Dead Space is still happening, contrary to what some might have believed.
According to Desturctoid, citing a report from Variety, the project has been in the works for at least three years now. Back in 2009, DJ Caruso was announced to be the director, but not much has happened after. Since then, several other properties that EA was shopping around Hollywood also failed to gain any traction, including Mass Effect, Army of Two, The Sims, Spore, and even Dante's Inferno.

Just Add Water's "Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty" -- an HD remake of 1997's "Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee" -- is coming to the Wii U and PlayStation 4, but not the Xbox 360 or One. Why?
"At the business level, Microsoft isn’t acknowledging people like us,” Oddworld Inhabitants boss and industry long-timer Lorne Lanning says. “It’s as if we don’t matter.”
Capybara Games, or CAPY as they preferred to be called, has released another trailer for their upcoming bullet hell shmup meets side scrolling platformer meets Back To The Future hybrid. Otherwise known as Super Time Force.
And it's pretty much what the doctor ordered. Provided if what ails you is a serious lack of pixelated explosions, time paradoxes, and tough guy names that are straight from the 80s.

In addition to the chance to nab Assassin's Creed 2 for totally free, for the next two weeks at least, Xbox Live is also having a sale that covers a host of Capcom's offerings.
The entire rundown can be found over at Capcom Unity, though we have some recommendations:
- "Super Street Fighter IV AE" is going for just $14.99, which is definitely a great deal. And don't forget, with the Ultra updated on the way, here's a chance to get the base game if you haven't done so already.
- "Asura's Wrath," which is essentially an entire season of an over the top anime about gods who kick the crap out of each other is also one of last year's most criminally underplayed games, despite being a critical darling. It's going for just $9.99.
- The brilliant revival of the Blue Bomber, "Mega Man 9," and the not as awesome but still okay follow-up, "Mega Man 10," are available for just 400 MSP each.
- The 360 port of arguably the greatest "Street Fighter" game ever made, "Third Strike Online Edition," can be nabbed for an insanely low amount of 300 MSP. That's $3.75 in non-Microsoft moon money, BTW.
The fighting game community had another noteworthy gathering this past weekend, at the 2013 edition of the Evo Championship Series. And the people who gathered in Las Vegas are known for many things. Being really good at fighting games is perhaps the most obvious trait.
But there's also their tendency to speak their minds. And nothing demonstrated this more than the roomful of people who showered representatives from Double Helix and Mad Catz with boos.
