Street Fighter IV has come a long way since being released back in 2009. The continuous support from Capcom has enabled the game to evolve, having gone through three major updates (i.e. Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter IV: AE, and Super Street Fighter IV: AE 2012). To maintain the momentum, Capcom, at this year's EVO (the biggest fighting game tournament in the world), revealed its next installment for the Street Fighter IV series. Known as Ultra Street Fighter IV, the game will have new contents that should appease fans of old and new.

Last week, I wrote a report on the development of an independent Western-developed JRPG title called Soul Saga that was looking to reach a lofty goal of $60,000.00 via kickstarter. After one week, I'm happy to report that not only has the title reached the initial goal Mike Gale set, but it's well on its way to reaching numerous stretch goals including voice acting, console appearances and expansion of the game's fascinating universe.

I'll admit it, usually I'm wary of participating in any sort of crowdsourcing project on kickstater despite the fact that I spent some time after graduating college doing some indie game development myself. Will the project ever get completed? What kind of guarantee will I have that even if the goals are met that the project won't fall flat on its face?

PlayStation 4 - A Welcoming Standard stars

Sony-PlayStation-4

Plenty was revealed at Sony's press conference at E3. But without a doubt the most anticipated news revolved around the company's next generation console - the PlayStation 4 (PS4). Promised to be shown for the first time, how would the aesthetic design of the external hardware fair? How about the price of the system?
