Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 release and a cool tip.

Cnet just released a great article on MvC3 regarding it's release and initial conceptions. Many news aggregates and providers still have yet to give their two cents on this fantastic game. Gamespot recently rated the game an 8.5 and you can of course just click over to gamerankings or metacritic for the full scoop of what people are saying.

Here's a cool tip: If you've played phoenix before, you probably realized how little stamina she has, well theres a reason for that! If you have 5 guages and you let phoenix die, instead of being knocked out, she will transform into her much more powerful second form: Dark Phoenix. In this mode she can do significantly more damage than before, but her health is always degenerating. A really good strategy is to simply keep her in reserve until the end of your fight, saving your guages all the while, and when you get into a jam, set her out and watch your opponent get scared in a real hurry! Give it a shot!
