Registration is open now, just comment below or, preferably, reply to this thread (click here). That’s not all.

REVIEW – ARMS

Nintendo has platforming down, they have adventure RPGs down, and they have 2D fighting down, they even have third person shooters down. In comes ARMS, Nintendo’s latest new IP to take on the 3D fighter genre. Think Tekken cross between Stretch Armstrong, with that little added extra Nintendo flair, and you get ARMS.

Set in the not-so-distant future, fighters with extendable arms compete in boxing matches with an extra twist, to claim victorious in the ARMS Grand Pix. Will ARMS stretch its way to victory, or is it just a tangled mess? Find out in our review, after the break!
