Nostalgic gaming trips are strange things. They are, at the same time, wonderful and terrible. It’s always great to step back into a classic game. Unfortunately the memory of the game is usually better than the actual game itself. Most of us have been conditioned to expect the latest and greatest, and decades old games simply can’t hold our attention. Such is the nature of an industry that is constantly evolving and moving forward as fast as it can. Three relatively obscure titles have been assembled for the Capcom Arcade 1986 Gamepack, obscure relative to the other Capcom Arcade Cabinet
Can’t think of any Capcom titles that appeared on anyone’s ‘Best of 2012′ video game list but Remember Me seems likely to be their ‘break-out’ contender for 2013. Remember Me looks like a cross between Matrix and Blade Runner with a female protagonist called Nilin who is a ‘memory hunter’. The latest trailer opens up the world and shows off Nilin’s combat and ability to transverse the landscape – everything about this game is appealing – we can only hope it lives up to the ‘under the radar’ hype!

Capcom has shown a devotion for supporting their fighting games like Street Fighter and Marvel Vs Capcom by getting involved with events and helping support major fighting game tournaments like Evo2k. Capcom’s Matt Dahlgren and Haunts (from iplaywinner) announced today that a partnership deal was inked to bring a week-long tournament (and part reality show) called ‘Cross Assault‘ to the Internet airwaves surrounding the highly anticipated Street Fighter X Tekken video game. The announcement came in the form of Twitter, Facebook and their website but we were mostly interested in watching the guys talk about it on Andrea Rene’s (of
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was a long time favorite fighting game in the community and is still used in tournaments today – so Capcom definitely had their hands full trying to emulate the experience going into Marvel vs. Capcom 3. I remember the week that Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds launched most of the tweets coming in from prime-time players called the game ‘broken’ and ‘unbalanced’ on Twitter and other social media websites. The initial go-to champion for all things was Sentinel and later Phoenix in tournament play. Making a perfect fighting game upon launch is a
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will take the epic battle to all new heights with 12 new iconic characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes, a refined fighting system, eight new stages and new modes at a low price.

Dead Rising 2 from Capcom stars Chuck Greene as the reluctant protagonist of the story. We’re back in the mall and this time around you have to manage collecting Zombrex in order to keep your daughter Katey alive. Dead Rising 2 features tons of zombies, an upgrade in graphics and a more detailed story. The biggest improvement is being able to combine weapons in the maintenance room in order to deal even more damaging bloody damage to the wandering zombies you encounter. Dead Rising 2 is for the ‘zombie’ fans – it is all about mowing down zombie after zombie
Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo may have all the money in the gaming world but it’s CAPCOM who knows how to toss a party! Everything came together at the LOST PLANET 2 launch party this week. Fans and community members from the Capcom-Unity website were invited, TV celebs walked the red carpet and mingled with everyone, Olivia Munn from G4TV hosted a tournament for charity and best of all, tons of freebies to go around like cute Lost Planet ‘plushies’ and tshirts from our friends at I AM 8-BIT. It all came together at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California where
