Odd Prods
FPS Freek CQC and FPS Freek Specter

By Jorge Figueiredo - September 18th, 2014


When the next generation of consoles came out, they were accompanied by new controllers. These controllers improved upon their predecessors in many ways – but are they perfect? Not according to some. The comfort and usability of analog sticks, for instance, is reliant upon their height and their grip. KontrolFreek knows this, and they produce add-on products for those of us who would like to tweak this part of our controllers. Does it improve performance? Perhaps not immediately; but the increase in comfort goes a long way towards improving the overall gaming experience, which just might have some interesting fringe benefits.

Mega Man 10
Weapons Revealed

By Shaun Hatton - February 11th, 2010

Mega Man 10 Commando Bomb

When Mega Man defeats the eight robot masters in Mega Man 10, he’ll be able to power up and use the following weapons: Chill Spike, Commando Bomb (shown above), Rebound Striker, Solar Blaze, Thunder Wool, Triple Blade, Water Shield, and Wheel Cutter. You can see all the artwork in our Mega Man 10 gallery.

Whether or not most gamers will be able to make it through all the bosses is another question. I’m guessing a lot of people may eventually resort to the Easy mode to avoid too much frustration. The game will be released on WiiWare first March 1, followed by its PSN release March 11 before releasing on Xbox LIVE Arcade March 31.

Jorge took this great photo of Mike Jackson and me playing Street Fighter IV tonight. Click on the photo for an even bigger version. You can play “I Spy” if you want to. Or, you can also wonder why I have duplicate consoles. I’ll never tell.

More photos, along with an actual podcast, coming soon.

Production Notes and Some Art

DEERTASE 2: REINDEERTASE - Production Notes and Some Art

On Monday, we launched our second game, Deertase 2: Reindeertase. With it, we also released a few extra bits of content related to the game, such as the soundtrack, the instruction manual, and the desktop background downloads. Today, while cleaning up my files, I came across some early notes I had jotted down to help understand some of the functions that needed to be built into the game.

The notes are a little disjointed, and focus heavily on the item inventory system, but they also include mention of a few things that ended up being dumped from the final build of the game. If you’re into seeing handwritten notes, feel free to check out the scans of them.

On the subject of the actual game, it appears that no one has found this secret character yet.

Mega Man 10

Capcom has released a handful of screenshots and some character art for Mega Man 10 and, in good fanboy fashion I’m devoting an entire post to it. Shown above is Proto Man with the blue bomber, while our Flickr set contains the game’s logo and the screenshots. Enjoy!

Super Street Fighter IV
A Fistful of Screens

By Toronto Thumbs Staff - November 16th, 2009

Super Street Fighter IV

Today Capcom released six new screens from Super Street Fighter IV. Unfortunately three of these screens are kinda boring seeing that they only show some menu graphics. The other three are of the car-crushing and barrel-bashing bonus stages. Come to think of it, some better stills could have been chosen. We don’t even get to see a barrel being hit (why would Dan taunt a barrel?) nor do we get to see what the car looks like before it’s smashed to bits.

Poor screen grabbing or clever attempt to whet our appetites for more? You decide! Check out our Super Street Fighter IV gallery for the rest of the shots.
