Games for Windows Live will be K.O. soon and so Capcom are almost ready to drag its sorry-self out of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and replace it with the more hip and down-with-the-kids Steamworks.
Microsoft's failed GFWL client is believed to be pulling the plug this July. Capcom are "looking to transition" current users to Steamworks what with Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Worms creator Team17 has signed up Dlala Studios' 2D brawler Overruled! where the actual rules of the game are changed by the players from over "20 dynamic change 'em up cards" that'll alter the battle and scores.
You could start in Deathmatch but a rival could switch it to King of the Hill, in both local and online multiplayer. Team17 say it could be a "real-time Worms-like game" in the making.
No not Abe's Oddysee - Abyss Odyssey - and ACE Team have released another 'know your enemy' video this time for Bauta. This is their second video in the series introducing characters for the brawler.
The entire footage was produced by a lead tester for ATLUS. Abyss Odyssey is a new multiplayer 2D side-scrolling brawler. Our enemies' souls can be captured so we can play as them.
The Rezzed event in Birmingham hosts many indie game projects and one of those is Gang Beasts, which is a multiplayer co-op party game inspired by classic melee brawlers like Capcom's Final Fight.
The difference here is that Gang Beasts is physics-based, and full of hilarity. It's in the early pre-alpha stages and they plan for it to arrive on Steam Early Access, but it's downloadable now.
Well, does anyone else feel like that year went pretty quickly? 2013 will shortly end, but before that there's still time to visit your family, spend two weeks getting through that old backlog of games you've been collecting and, of course, celebrating and eating lots of good food.
We'll be taking a two week break at Strategy Informer, but that doesn't mean you won't see any updates. We'll have a few articles published to keep you busy through the holidays, but we'll have to ask you to wait until the 2nd of January until our full coverage returns.
