REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The First Female MMA Fighters In A Video Game

Posted on Thursday, February 24 @ 03:31:29 Eastern by


For the first time, female fighters will be joining the roster of an MMA title. Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig and Michele “Diablita” Gutierrez will bring their likenesses and their fighting styles to Supremacy MMA, a piece of history that Herrig is proud of:

Being one of the first women to represent MMA in a videogame is a dream come true for me. This is our chance to finally show gamers that female fighters can hold their own.

Gutierrez shares the same opinion:

Joining the roster of fighters for Supremacy MMA is definitely awesome. The game takes a totally different approach to MMA so I think it’s perfect that this is the game that features women for the first time.


Ricci Rukavina, CEO and Creative Director for developer Kung Fu Factory, is "proud to be a part of raising their profile and giving these tough-as-nails fighters their due in the virtual cage".

And Peter Matiss, VP of marketing at 505 Games, believe that "
Michele and Felice fight with the same ferocity and heart as any other fighter, regardless of gender, and we are proud to represent these strong, determined women in our game".

Since Supremacy MMA plays more like a traditional fighter like Street Fighter or Tekken, the match-ups between the male and female MMA fighters will likely be balanced and fair. A fantasy in the real world, but hey, this is a video game.

Supremacy MMA will hit stores June 2011 on Xbox 360 and PS3.
