Soul Calibur V - PlayStation 3 Standard Edition by Namco Bandai
I loved Soul Calibur 4. One of the best 1-on-1 fighters ever. This game is essentially that game with all of the best game modes being eliminated. Where's the tower challenge mode? Why is the custom character stuff now purely cosmetic? I loved the changes and how it affected your characters stats gave it a touch of strategy.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 [Blu-ray +&hellip
DC animated features continue to impress. I'm not a huge fan of the Dark Knight Returns comics by Frank Miller, but somehow I found this animated version very enjoyable, and possibly the best DC animated feature yet. Like Green Lantern: First Flight [Blu-ray], Dark Knight Returns blows it's big-screen counterpart, The Dark Knight Rises, away. Rises is just essentially a mash-up of the plots of DK Returns and the 90's Batman event plot "Knightfall" anyway. Peter Weller is solid and appropriately somber as Batman/Bruce. The voice acting and animation are all-around great. The scenes with Robin bring in some much needed brighter… Read more
