I’m sure my credibility is probably shot ever since I gave G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA a relatively positive review, but if nothing else, that only shows what my video game taste is. I don’t need state-of-the-art graphics or revolutionary gameplay. I just need a game to be FUN. And dammit, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was one of the most fun games I’ve played in a very long time. Well, next week, Ultimate Alliance 2 comes out, and I can’t freaking wait! I think this trailer has been around forever, but I just saw it today… check it out. Not a whole lot of gameplay, but some kick ass looking cut scenes and a nifty soundtrack. Looking forward to it.

#1 – Read the review!
I mean, folks had to know it was coming, right? Along with the contest to win a copy of the Ultimate Guide to G.I. Joe (2nd Edition), I’ve also posted a fairly exhaustive review of the book as well, with a ton of pictures and details about the improvements and the contents.
ocab27 over on HissTank.com has scored a Pursuit of COBRA Storm Shadow test shot, based on the tooling from the unreleased Resolute version, and has kindly posted images online, which I’ve hosted below.
This is one bad ass version of the COBRA Ninja…I love the Resolute tooling anyway, but with all of these bad ass accessories, this is a fantastic version of Storm Shadow. Considering how tired I was getting of the character during the Anniversary line, the Rise of COBRA and Pursuit of COBRA has really revitalized the character, and given us some wonderful toys. Awesome. To see fully painted versions of this great looking figures, hit up the Pursuit of COBRA SuperPage.
