Capcom Announces Street Fighter Vs. Tekken Games

In spite of its name, San Diego's Comic-Con is dominated by movies -- Hollywood always makes the biggest splash at the show by far. Comic Book sellers and artists are relegated to one part of the hall, and video games have an even smaller footprint than that. But that doesn't mean gaming's isn't on display.

This year, the big news was fighting games. Specifically, Street Fighter x Tekken and Tekken x Street Fighter. Pitting the fighters of Tekken against the Street Fighters in two different game seem more like a dream a sixth grader would have than actual products, but they are real, and they were announced at Comic-Con this year. Check it out in the video below:

Also in fighting game news: Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 also made a splash with the announcement of Thor and Okami's Amaterasu as playable characters in the upcoming game.

Bungie revealed it's new, easy-to-use Forge World for Halo: Reach as well as new modes: Vs. Firefight and Gruntpocalypse.

We learned how Fallout: New Vegas came to exist, checked out the sweet dual lightsabers that will be featured in The Force Unleashed 2, and got our hands on the following games:

That's not all, of course. Check out the rest of our Comic-Con coverage for much, much more news about games, panel live-blogs, previews and more, more more!
