Yes, if you so wish to buy day one, 3 pre-order packs are available.  Amazon has the “Weapon Grade Pack” and Best Buy has the “Armor Upgrade Pack” with GameStop offering a “Pawn Upgrade Pack” to Capcom faithful.

Prototype 2′s RAD Pre-Order Bonuses

Behind-the-Scenes video! Alternate costumes! Rewards for completing weekly challenges! If you are too young to remember how even some PlayStation 2 games had these features; then buying Prototype 2 on launch day is for you! Starting April 27th Radical Entertainment will have a seven week window for players to gain access to RADNET with a purchase of a new copy of Prototype 2. RADNET promises 55 parted out DLC throughout the seven weeks that include friend vs. friend competitive score challenges, to Avatar items. After seven weeks the free RADNET content becomes locked.

Even with this call to action my butt remains pretty firm on the recliner. With a PS2 I can experiences all these features, and Gackt, in Bujingai: The Forsaken City. Heck, it is about $41 on Amazon if anyone wants to feel like paying new-ish prices. A true Hail Mary to quench used game guilt.

Mega-Chub Man in Street Fighter X Tekken?

Waking up should be a grand act full of coughing and butt scratching.
This morning included a slap to the face from Capcom’s announcement of 5
new characters for  Street Fighter X Tekken, but for the Playstation3 and Vita. The character list just adds to the sting.

Mega Man

Pac Man

Cole (Infamous)

Kuro/Toro (Sony mascots)

Focusing on which characters matter, the men come to Street Fighter X Tekken in unconventional fighting form. Mega Man is all grown up sporting his original US box art look and proudly strutting a beer gut. Pac Man jumps into the fight riding a wooden robot and shooting out to bash enemies with his ball like body. Sure people who own Sony products have the other two, or three, but who really cares. Cole doesn’t have anime eyes and suffering from girl problems and the cats aren’t drunk. Why would this grand news leave a mark on my face? I own a 360.  Microsoft, if you are not going to give me a real Metal Gear to play least at least make Mega “Gut” Man a playable character. Even as DLC, Please?

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 2 ?

This may be a teaser for a new Ferris Bueller trailer that will air during Super Bowl 46 or it may just be a teaser for another Super Bowl ad!

Couldn’t have said it better myself

I tried to come up with a poignant statement for this post. But then I realized what the hell.

MadCatz Announces Two New Headsets

If looks aren’t what sell you on peripheral devices you may miss out on the new offering of MadCatz CYBORG headsets.  If on the other hand their past products and spec sheets are any indication the newly released Primer Wireless Headset for the Xbox360 and its up coming sister product the F.R.E.Q.5 for PC and Mac are sure to please. Both headset are priced at 100$

The Primer features 5.8GHZ wireless technology as well as 40mm neodymium drivers. It has a two tone black and orange color scheme with a removable mic and external volume knobs for the sound and mic separately.

The CYBORG stylized F.R.E.Q.5 also includes “on ear controls” and a removable mic in addition to 50mm stereo drivers. It has both a 3.5mm jack cord and one with a USB connection that can be switched depending on what kind of connection you prefer. The marketing touts the 3.5mm jack as a way to plug in to mobile devices but users of dedicated sound cards on the PC will appreciate this as their hardware natively supports a 3.5mm connection.

The reason I believe the upcoming F.R.E.Q.5 uses 50mm drivers rather than 40mm is due to partly in fact to keeping the price equal for both unites. So in a since you may be sacrificing a bit of sound quality for the luxury of a wireless connection and battery life on the 360 side of things.

According to their release “the F.R.E.Q.5 Pro Gaming Headset for PC, (is) expected to ship Spring 2012. . .” while the Primer should be shipping already. If you don’t feel like waiting you can preorder the F.R.E.Q.5 now.
