Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Fan Day Tour

Imagine my surprise, two weeks ago, when I got an email from Activision inviting me to spend a day at Raven Software's studio, touring the facility, having a Q&A session between serious Marvel fans and the development team and playing their upcoming game, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, on the Xbox 360. Needless to say, I was excited. I had to go, not just because I really wanted to get my hands on the game and check out the studio, but to ensure that you, our dear readers, get the inside look at how the games are brought to you.

Dickensian night back on calendar

Last year the celebration was replaced by Ware's Christmas Cracker, but this year, in an Oliver Twist to the tale, it will be given back its traditional title.

Keith Batchelor, the Dick-ensian Evening committee chairman, said: "It's back. Everybody at the public meeting we had said 'Why have they changed the name? Let's change it back'.

"We want everyone to get behind it and support the event. It's a great community celebration and we'd love everyone to get involved."

Entertainment lined up includes music from local bands and a barrel organ, and a performance by female morris dancers Hertfordshire Holly. There will be stalls in High Street and Tudor Square, where there will also be a carol service at 7pm.

It is hoped that the Drill Hall, in Amwell End, will host a farmers' market.

Genre: Action RPG

Last year we got the sequel to the greatest X-men game ever, X-men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse. The game utilized the teaming efforts of the Brotherhood and the X-Men in order to take down Apocalypse. Out of the roster of mutants, you would choose four to go into battle with. This wa sa nice feature, but the wrong selection of fighters could prove costly, or make the battles more intense. Over time, the battles seemed repetitive, but the fact youw ere able to select different teams of characters, it keep the action relatively fresh. This time around withMarvel Ultimate Alliance, we get to do battle with various fighters from across the massive universe known as Marvel.

Due to the story behind MUA, not a lot is known about the game. The basis of the story is that Dr. Doom has decided to team of with various evil forces in order to take control of the world.

Activision Ships Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

Alright you would-be super heroes, its time to get out your capes and cowls because Activision announced today that they have shipped Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for each planned system except for the PlayStation 3 and Wii, which will both have the title on their respective launch days.

An action-RPG, Ultimate Alliance allows you to assemble your, um, ultimate alliance of Marvel super heroes, whether it is the prominent – such as Spider-Man – or the more obscure – such as Spider-Girl – in order to save the universe from Doctor Doom. For more information on the game, you can read our Xbox 360 preview here, or take a look at how the more unconventional Wii and PS3 versions will play here.

Depending on how much you want to spend, you can get the Xbox 360 version for $59.99, the Xbox, PS2, PSP and PC versions for 39.99, or the GBA version for $29.99.

In League With Heroes

Superheroes have possessed elite status in American pop culture for a long time. Their comic books are cherished collectibles; their movies have become influential with critics as well as ticket buyers.

Measure their influence for yourself next week. When you see a group of children in Halloween costumes, keep track of how often there's a Superman, Wonder Woman or Spider-Man.

That's why ``Justice League Heroes'' from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a noteworthy game. It features the ultimate super folks, the DC Comics icons who defined the concept of wielding power with nobility and wisdom. Besides Superman and Wonder Woman, that group includes Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and Aquaman.

Many pop culture connoisseurs will argue that the DC lineup has been eclipsed by the Marvel Comics pantheon -- Spidey, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Captain America and the Hulk, just for starters.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Hits Retailers

Video game publisher Activision has annoucned its new game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is now available from retailers in North America for Xbox 360, Xbox, Playstation 2, and PC, plus versions for Sony's PSP and Nintendo's Game Boy advance.

Justice League Heroes (X-Box) Review

Comic books lend themselves to great games. You have larger than life characters, with fantastic powers, battling equally powerful foes. There are years upon years of history for game creators to draw ideas from. For some reason, however, creators have been looking for the quick buck. The comic book fan has suffered too long. From Batman Forever to Justice League Task Force, they have run the gamut on mediocrity and banality. Snowblind studios have come to the rescue for DC fans (Marvel has there own saviors with X-Men Legends 1 & 2, Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance). Donning the Snowblind engine, Justice League Heroes is here to save the day (for the most part). Graphics Anyone whos familiar with Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath will instantly know what to expect from this game.
