The Resident Evil as a franchise has mutated as much as the bio-weapons you face in it with each new iteration. Starting as a survival horror series, it has slowly become more action-oriented. While there has been an outcry from people who wish for the series to go back to its horror roots, it seems Capcom had just the remedy for their aliment. Resident Evil Revelations came out for the Nintendo 3DS fairly recently, but is the new HD port worth the extra cash? Resident Evil Revelations has you as multiple characters across a variety of locales, from a barren
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is an expansion of Capcom’s 2012 critical hit Dragon’s Dogma. Purchasing Dark Arisen gives you the entire game, the expansive Bitterblack Isle expansion and a few improvements in game play. For this review, I’m going to focus on the new content provided and not the main game play. If you would like to read my review of the original game, click here. Biiterblack Isle is a character of Dragon’s Dogma in and of itself. The island’s key locations are beautiful and unique: from the epitaph in the opening gate to lush greenery and wildlife outside of
Injustice Gods Among Us is from the same development team who brought us the last Mortal Kombat (NetherRealm Studios) video game. We praised the last Mortal Kombat game in mostly every way and Injustice Gods Among Us deserves the same treatment. It’s refreshing when a new video game is released that takes familiar elements already established and mixes them up in new ways to create a fresh and fun experience. Injustice Gods Among Us is plain and simple a FUN game – you can play with over 20 characters from the DC Universe (both hero or villain) against your friends (online/local) or by yourself. Injustice is a welcome addition to the fighting game community as there hasn’t been much to get excited about over the last handful of months.
Remember Me is a new video game coming from Dontnod Entertainment and Capcom featuring a female protagonist called Nilin who can read/process memories in addition to taking down baddies with her fists. Remember Me feels like a video game version of Total Recall and/or Minority Report mixed with video game action like a Devil May Cry or Tomb Raider. There’s plenty of stuff to explore and tons of hand-to-hand combat between Nilin and numerous enemies. During Wondercon in Anaheim, California – gamers got a chance to play Remember Me hands-on and see for themselves what to expect when the game
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
Epic quests and boisterous battles are coming to the 3DS in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Though this is a port, new features like Streetpass bring some variation to the mix. The touch screen is fully customizable as you can either put in valuable sub-menus at your finger tips or use it for a new “dynamic mode” which takes the HUD away from the action. There’s also connectivity with the Nintendo Wii U version, rewarding gamers who decide to splurge for both.
Darkstalkers Resurrection is one of the best values available for fighting fans on any console right now, and really should not be missed. Old school arcade junkies will love the enhanced graphics and options of both Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Darkstalkers 3, and can rest easy that the original charm of each title has been retained. Younger fans of the fighting genre will love the original characters and deep lore, and will enjoy the challenge of going up against those who have played these titles for nearly two decades.
Sony’s recent unveiling of the PlayStation 4 at the PS4 Press Conference in NYC caused the Internet to explode with glee, grief, anger, confusion and shock. It also left me with sore legs due to its length (It finished in just over 2 hours). Now, you can watch the press conference on your own or catch play-by-plays somewhere else. I’m more interested in breaking it down and analyzing what we saw and what was said – along with everything not shown or unsaid. First is the PS4 itself. The X86 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 8 cores leaves a fantastic
Last year, Capcom announced an expansion for their sleeper hit: Dragon’s Dogma. Entitled Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, this goes beyond what you’d normally expect from a simple “expansion.” It’s one of the things I love about how Capcom handles this franchise; they aren’t afraid to try something a little different. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will deliver on all the pieces you would expect: a new third tier of skills to evolve and utilize, new augments for your character and your pawn, more customization, new equipment and a more intuitive menu system. All these check-marks for the box’s back are great,
In 2001 Devil May Cry was THE game to buy for the PlayStation 2. Dante had a long black jacket that looked like a cape, white hair, guns blazing and fantastic swordplay. The action was fast and the environment was fun with a splash of Capcom gaming excitement written all over it. The follow-up Devil May Cry 2 wasn’t so great but Devil May Cry 3 and 4 were both decent and sold well. Five years after the last game we now have the reboot of the series called ‘DmC‘ starring a revamped Dante, Vergil (his brother) and Kat a companion
