Walkthrough of Stranglehold

Midway did this long great walkthrough video of Stranglehold, showing some great interesting stuff. The game will be released next year, so the wait will be long and painful.

It won't be that painful of a wait. There are plenty of games coming out in the meantime. Nice find, MART. That walkthrough is awesome.

CAPS LOCK6340d ago

that was cool and it is coming for ps3 aswell, midway did it this time. i hope they release a good mortal kombat game with about 100 players, the new ones were not as good as the classic ones.

General6340d ago

This video is from an older build, Maybe the E3 One, So this is gonna look better when its out ;)

PS360PCROCKS6340d ago

Lords of Exile review - Games Asylum

Games Asylum: "Late last year the world was presented with Prison City, a NES homage that fused together the little-known gems Shatterhand and Power Blade. Just a few months later, we’re now on the receiving end of another 8-bit mash-up, with Lords of Exile playing like an amalgamation of Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden. With so many Castlevania alikes on the market, it certainly helps to have an extra kick."

Microsoft Losing to Sony Is a Wrong Perception, Says Pachter; They Want to Win Business, Not Console

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes it's an incorrect gamers' perception that Microsoft has lost to Sony.

"If we change what our goal is, we're not losing" attitude. Kind of like how Microsoft didn't lose to Valve, they just changed their business model. And they didn't lose to Android and iOS, they just changed their business model. They 100%, after spending 3 generations competing heavily in console hardware, aren't losing to Sony, they're just changing their business model.

You can't ever lose if you just 'change your business model'!

Jin_Sakai2h ago

Pachter is full of crap. Always assume the opposite of what he says.

crazyCoconuts1h ago

What's kinda crazy to me is - if they retreat from consoles they're left with a business model that depends on making great games that people want to buy.
What has been Xbox's biggest issue over the last decade or so?
It's not like they're falling back to a strength...

GamerRN3m ago

They didn't retreat and even promised the biggest generational leap! Where did you get retreat from?

Business is all about money not actual sales. If I sell 1 thing for 1 million and you sell 10000 things for 900k Who really won.

remixx1162m ago

The person who sold 10000 things because he has developed a consumer base and consistent revenue stream while simultaneously showing that he has the capacity to obtain market share.

The person who sold 1 thing for a million hasnt proven much outside of the simple fact that he can get an idiot to pay a copious amount of money for a single product. Holla at me when he has proven he can do it consistently overtime.

This is a nuanced subject matter

How about the gamers perspective

Xbox as a console business is last in the gamersphere. Pivot after pivot, swerve after swerve. If it wasn't for pc the xbox console would died a while back. Console owners need to choose what's best for them, their experiences or the console owners profits

BobManoak13m ago(Edited 12m ago)

Seems to be working for them. They’re bigger than Sony, Apple, Google and valve.

They are the only 3 trillion dollar company.

But keep thinking Sony are winning fanboy.

jznrpg9m ago

That has nothing to do with Xbox.

GamerRN2m ago

Xbox is worth more than PlayStation as a brand. A simple Google search will show you that.

Eonjay1m ago

Microsoft is like the rich boy who only has 'friends' because he is rich. They are the richest because they have a monopoly on Office software. And a monopoly on PC operating systems. So obviously their plan for gaming is to monopolize that as well. Everyone 'should' be against Microsoft obviously and the fact that everyone isn't against Microsoft should be good enough for their fans.

Eonjay7m ago

The obvious rebuttal to Pachter's cray cray notion is that you wouldn't have to change your model if you were winning.

Reaper22_6m ago

Sony said similar things when their Walkman was beaten by Apple and when Samsung surpassed them in the TV market. I can go on and on but I'm sure you get the picture. Business is business. All companies take a whippen every now and and then. The difference is how you bounce back. Microsoft net worth has grow over the years. Business wise they are very successful and no matter what, sony would love to be where they are financially. Sony isn't the competition microsoft worries about. That been clear for a long time now. Microsoft wants gaming to be a part of their ecosystem. Sony needs it. Big difference there.

How's this guy still around. According to him consoles were dying after ps2, ps3 Era.

Christopher1h ago

Analysts are never wrong, the market just had a swift change for which no one could account.

FarScapePilot27m ago

Console is their business, otherwise why be working on a new console? Pachter is a long time xbox fanboy and watching them slowly go third party is killing him inside.

stonecold314m ago

michael and his bs view just give me headache wish he would go and retire

MIDGETonSTILTS1713m ago(Edited 13m ago)

They only way that plan works is if people still want to play in their ecosystem.

Eventually, they’re ecosystem needs more games.

Helldivers 2 could swing Xbots to ps6 if it isn’t countered by the end of the gen.

Abnor_Mal9m ago(Edited 6m ago)

Supposedly some well known Halo modders will be making a mode similar to Helldivers.
