Guilty Gear XX #Reload Comes To Steam Sept. 5th

KISS Ltd. and Funbox Media are bringing Guilty Gear XX #Reload to Steam next month. GGXX #Reload will join the only other title in the series currently available on Steam, Guilty Gear Isuka. The decision to re-release a "middle" installment in such a long-running, heavily-updated series is questionable (and likely disappointing to some), especially since #Reload was already ported to PC in 2004-2006. Nonetheless, it might be worth picking up for hardcore fans of this particular installment.

Peripheral Transforms 3DS XL Into Arcade Stick

Even though the Nintendo 3DS doesn't have nearly as many fighting game options as Playstation Vita, there's a new accessory coming out (Oct. 31st) that will transform a 3DS XL into a mini arcade stick. The Cyber Arcade Stick is an easy-to-attach peripheral exclusively for the 3DS XL, adding an arcade style joystick over the D-pad and slightly larger buttons (still only 4 buttons). It probably won't have "true" arcade quality accuracy, but it looks kinda neat.
