Excerpt: Lara Croft is an icon of the industry but she has been mostly non-existent this generation. It seems Crystal Dynamics is working on a full-fledged installment for release some time next year – yet to be confirmed – but in the meantime, we’ve got a downloadable iteration of Lara’s latest.
Excerpt: I guess I need to always remind myself that no matter how far into a generation we get mediocrity will continue to live on. What am I getting at? Well, as you can already guess, I'm calling Dead to Rights Retribution a mediocre game, and that's simply the truth.

Excerpt: I love to get a hold of the retro compilations whenever I can. Mostly because I actually was gaming before there was a consideration that they would be re-releasing any of these games. In this case, I got my hands on Capcom Classics Collection: Volume 2 .
Conclusion: The three Street Fighter II games are of course great to see in the collection, and are probably, along with Final Fight are the games you’ll spend the most time with.

Pros: Final Fight, Street Fighter II variants, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
Cons: A lot of fillers, No 60Hz - bad Capcom!, Virtual dipswitch control would have been nice
