REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

I hope Paradox doesn't mind if I co-opt this showdown from him, but I say we should have two events going at the same time!

So back again is the comic book character showdown!

And why not have it again, as every year the perception of characters changes thanks to all the movies. Could Star Lord, a dark horse in last years event, get the boost he needs to make it to the end? Will last year's winners, Doctor Doom and The Cabal get knocked out in the first round?

Find out!

Rules for nomination are the same easy format. Choose 8 characters and 2 teams no one else has picked and nominate them. Easy!

Good luck!

3. Death (The Sandman)
4. Harley Quinn (Batman)
5. Delirium (The Sandman)
6. Flycatcher (Fables)

Go for it Longo, I've thought about doing one of these again but just haven't. Word of advice to all nominators: Send an image of each of your choices to Longo. Image searching for just the right one is the longest part of the showdown running process. I'll PM mine shortly.

Doctor Doom (I got your back Longo)
Black Adam
Captain America (Steve Rogers)
Groot (I was going to pick Rocket, but Craig beat me to it)
The Flash (Barry Allen)
Martian Manhunter
Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)
Ultron

Guardians of the Galaxy (2008 team)
Booster Gold and Blue Beetle

Just make it smaller than screen stretching and I'm fine with it.

One more would be an even 64, so I would be alright with starting then.

Though I realize we need more teams. So in order to make things more exciting, I'll allow an extra two team nominations for everyone, totaling at 4 each! Sound good? Good!

Screw it, go ahead and do singles too. The more the merrier! We'll just have some three-for-all match ups.

Also, Heroes for Hire and Suicide Squad have already been picked, so do some more teams.
