To keep the battle raging, the intergalactic baddie himself, Thanos, becomes a playable character for the first time ever in an action-adventure game. Spar in the Rumpus Room of the mighty Thanos and play through the game as the wicked overlord himself.

The Thanos Throwdown downloadable pack is available for a suggested price of $4.99 on PlayStation 3 and 400 Microsoft points for the Xbox 360.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (PS3/X360)

Players take control of their favorite characters from the Marvel and Capcom worlds. The battle begins when legendary villains of two universes conspire to wreak havoc across space and time, unleashing a terrible evil that threatens the existence of an entire civilization. In a desperate fight to survive, the Marvel and Capcom universes collide in a battle royale that will determine the fate of two worlds.

The greatest fighters from both worlds clash in teams of three, as players create their dream-teams from the Marvel and Capcom rosters. The battle is brought to life in an innovative comic book art style, powered by Capcom's MT Framework, an advanced version of the graphics engine used for Resident Evil 5. When the fight goes vertical, fighters launch into the air, exchanging aerial combo attacks in a furious burst of color and light. If the pressure is on, players can call on team members for an “assist” attack that will throw off their opponents, or they can tag out their character for a fresh new warrior. The option for streamlined controls makes the fighter a pleasure to play for all skill levels. For those who seek a challenge, players can take their game online and face-off against opponents around the world.

Popular returning characters include Spider-Man, Ryu, Wolverine, Morrigan, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Felicia, Chun-Li, Tron Bonne, Magneto, Storm, Akuma and Doctor Doom. Crimson Viper, Viewtiful Joe and Zero will make their debut in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise.

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (PSP)

The remake of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together on the PSP system challenges novices and veterans alike with significant new content, including an entirely updated storyline featuring: dynamic characters, dramatic choices, engaging plots and even more pitched battles. The remake also features innovative changes to the battle system, class and character levelling mechanics, and even the combat interface, which all serve to streamline its classic tactical gameplay, making battles more intuitive and most importantly, fun.

What continues to distinguish Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together from the Final Fantasy Tactics titles it precedes is a significantly more complex and dramatic storyline, which is greatly impacted by the choices players make during their adventures. Allow a village to be slaughtered or side with a particular warlord in battle and the player may gain new allies, sow new enemies and push the story in entirely new directions.

In order to provide players with an opportunity to experience the multitude of branching pathways and many varied endings, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together has also introduced two new systems, the World Tarot and the Chariot Tarot, which allow players to rewind both key battles and critical plot points in an effort to change their fate.

  • The original Tactics Ogre development team — the creators of Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII — reform to revitalize their iconic title.
