Spartacus Legends’ month-long tournament to crown Champion of Capua

[springboard type=”video” id=”800323″ player=”xbla001″ width=”640″ height=”400″ ]

The time to declare a gladiator above all others has arrived. Kung Fu Factory, developer of free-to-play gladiatorial simulator Spartacus Legends, has decreed four weeks of bloodshed in the search for a champion of the Arena. Starting today, players can enter into online matches against a global stable of opponents during four weekly competitions – which together comprise Spartacus Legends‘ first tournament season.

The top 100 players from each week will be gifted rewards befitting their performance, with additional and better rewards going to the highest placed competitors. Victors can claim titles, wealth, legendary equipment and banners for their houses. Upon the conclusion of the season, an overall champion will be named and honored with the title of “Champion of Capua.” The tournament schedule and a full list of reward tiers can be found after the jump.

Spartacus Legends released in June of this year to a cold reception. Our own review found it buggy and bland, with netcode that made online battles nearly impossible to enjoy. However, Kung Fu Factory has supported Spartacus with several patches and compatibility updates, adding new features and addressing the connectivity issues, glitches, bugs and matchmaking system.

Spartacus Legends review (XBLA)

Spartacus Legends review (XBLA)

Spartacus Legends was developed by Kung Fu Factory and published by Ubisoft. It was released June 26, 2013 for free.

spartacus-legends

Despite being made as a tie-in to a television series on Starz, Spartacus Legends is a free-to-play fighting game that doesn’t require any previous knowledge of the show. The game puts you in the role of battle-hardened slaves rising up the ranks to become legendary gladiators. Buckets upon buckets of blood will be shed as you fight your way through Roman arenas. There was a lot of potential here for this to be a fun, mature fighting game. In the end, the game’s bright ideas were murdered by a slew of technical problems.

Bellator MMA patch details

By  •  News

Bellator: MMA Onslaught didn’t exactly win us over with its sloppy gameplay. While it looked pretty, that polish didn’t translate to the controls. But like any good developer/publisher team Kung Fu Factory and 345 Games listened to complaints and released a title update that addresses these concerns. Of the update they stated:

Community feedback has been at the forefront of 345 Games’ development since the launch of Bellator: MMA Onslaught on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in July. Well, players have spoken and 345 Games has listened and answered with a new game patch for XBLA and PSN users that is now available. The patch incorporates the suggestions and comments 345 Games has received through their social media networks over the past month.

Today’s patch is only the beginning of what’s in store for Bellator: MMA Onslaught. Over the next few months, 345 Games will continue to listen to its community on further enhancements and updates as it preps for a significant announcement toward the end of 2012.

Hit the jump for a full list of fixes and updates.

Bellator: MMA Onslaught review (XBLA)

Bellator: MMA Onslaught was developed by Kung Fu Factory and published by 345 Games. It was released on July 11, 2012 for 1200 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Bellator: MMA Onslaught brings mixed martial arts (MMA) to Xbox Live Arcade for the first time. Onslaught is based on the Bellator Fighting League so it will likely be unfamiliar to those who only know about the UFC. Bellator utilizes a tournament system to determine who will get a title shot. Otherwise the rules in Bellator are largely the same as any other MMA organization. Onslaught’s main game mode revolves around the tournament and becoming the champ. The real question is whether or not Onslaught can compete with the MMA video game big boys the same way the Bellator league is attempting to compete in the MMA scene.

Girl Fight Marketplace listing has screenshots of the ladies in action

We got a first hand look at Wrench from the upcoming fighter Girl Fight and now a Marketplace listing has fallen in our hands. There’s also up to 20 new screenshots of the game in action that sprawls over a series of locations with ladies in military attire, knight armor, and some of them still forgot to bring shirts to the fight. Nevertheless, check out the jump for the screenshots and Marketplace description before this gets delisted. We’re still looking at a spring release and the listing does bring a rumor of a March 19 release date but this unconfirmed at this date.

Introducing Wrench and her arena in Girl Fight

Girl Fight was only introduced a couple weeks ago but the upcoming fighting game with plenty of girls is soon around the corner. Kung Fu Factory and Microprose have revealed their first character entitled “Wrench”. While she may lack a shirt, she makes up for being a “tank” class which deals heavy amount of damage. She also graduated MIT at the age of 19, so it only makes sense a shadowy organization would kidnap her and make her fight other girls. Check out her arena after the jump.
