Buying Super Castlevania IV from the virtual console should have been the second thing you did with the Wii. The first, of course, was figuring out how to cheat the system at Wii Sports bowling. SCIV first hit store shelves in December 1991, and 19 years later, it still offers excellent platforming and one of the best soundtracks in gaming. Be sure to check out the music tribute video toward the end.
Anya Stroud should be a name that’s incredibly familiar to Gears of War fans. The daughter of deceased war hero Helena Stroud, Anya is anything but your average “video game chick“. Spending the first two games in the background, Anya is only a few weeks away from her big moment in the spotlight as one of many new playable female COG soliders. In an interesting bit of cross marketing, Epic Games has teamed up with FHM magazine to bring you this Anya inspired photo shoot starring model Anna Simon. While seeing Anya in her full COG armor complete with lancer is pretty damn cool, there are some other photos in the set that don’t really suit her character. Do you feel like EPIC went a bit too far and “sexualized” one of their strong female characters? Or do you feel like their teaming with FHM is just all in good fun? Let us know! Credit (Egotastic)
