The Resident Evil franchise is no stranger to over-the-top action sequences and labyrinthine plots, and Resident Evil 6 looks to be no exception. It boasts all-out Bio-terrorism attacks on Tokyo and the United States, what looks to be a zombie President, and shambling flesh-crazed walkers on Air Force One of all places.
The roster of the title reads like an all-star reunion, featuring Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Ada Wong, and . . . Albert Wesker’s son? Which of course necessitates the question: who married that guy?
It’s hard to review Asura’s Wrath like any conventional game.
Thanks to long years of clichés, you’ll think this is a fancy way for me to praise it. It isn’t. Asura’s Wrath at times tests its classification as a game, because the actual game design is elementary bordering on novice. Like independent production Dear Esther, Asura’s Wrath is first and foremost an experienced narrative and incorporates almost the bare minimum of gameplay elements. Unlike Dear Esther, it has no time for your puny mortal concepts of “subtlety” and “minimalism” when it comes to the events taking place onscreen. Those starships won’t blow themselves up, you know.
Unlike Dear Esther, Asura’s Wrath is completely off-the-wall insane. It has one sense of scale: ridiculous. At the least, one has to respect developer CyberConnect2’s devotion to telling exactly the story they want to tell, logic and basic game design convention be damned.
Resident Evil 4 and CODE: Veronica X were arguably two of the best games in the survival horror franchise, so it’s no surprise that Capcom is looking to release high-def versions of the game for the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade in honor of Resident Evil‘s 15th Anniversary.
Slated for release this fall, the digital re-release of Resident Evil 4 and CODE: Veronica X will mark the first time that any of the franchise’s earlier entries have been released on a Microsoft game console.
Marvel VS Capcom 3 has yet to hit stores and already Capcom is rolling out announcements of upcoming downloadable content. While DLC should be no surprise, especially with the announcement of Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath being DLC characters a few months back, this particular DLC mode is probably not what many people expected to see.
Called “Shadow Mode”, this new mode will pit players against various AI-controlled teams based on famous players and custom built teams with their own special techniques. Each Shadow Mode DLC pack comes with three AI-teams, the first set to be released including AIs based on MvC3 Producer Ryota Niitsuma, Assistant Producer Akihito Kadowaki, and a QA team leader.
If you’ve been following every single bit of Marvel VS Capcom 3 news since the game was announced last year, this next announcement may come as no surprise to you. With the roster fully unveiled and DLC characters such as Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath announced, only one thing has remained concealed, or at least as concealed as possible when the internet is involved; the Final Boss.
For those of you that aren’t yet aware, look no further. Capcom has finally unveiled the Big Bad behind Marvel VS Capcom 3; the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus. They’ve also released a gameplay video and screenshots showcasing Galactus in all his devastating glory.
Since the announcement of the Nintendo 3DS, I’ll admit I’ve been a bit cynical about it given my own distaste for 3D gimmicks. Still, after getting the opportunity to try it out at last night’s Marvel VS Capcom 3 Fight Club event, I have to say my opinions on Nintendo’s latest handheld have changed. And it doesn’t hurt that the first game I got the opportunity to demo was Capcom’s Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition.
Now, I’m not that great when it comes to fighting games. It is my one great shame as a gamer. But even so, I’ve never been one to pass up some Street Fighter action and, despite my personal limitations in the genre, I still know a thing or two.
So, how does Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition stack up?
We are just days away from the official release date of the long-awaited Marvel VS Capcom 3.
We’ve played this game at E3 and PAX, seen exhibition matches played and streamed online from EVO. February 15th couldn’t come any sooner. (I want to bash heads in with my lifebar using Deadpool, now!)
Past the break, is the official intro video you will, no doubt, be skipping every time you start up the game. Are you as excited as we are?
The Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds release date is approaching, and the little boy or girl in us all cannot help but jump and SCREAM with excitement. With only three weeks remaining until launch, Marvel and Capcom have announced another pair of toons. Marvel brings back well known Sentinel, a robot solely made to destroy the X-Men. Capcom announces Hsien-Ko, a character looking like she came straight from an anime with blue skin and long, devastating, feline arms. Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be released on February 15, and, personally, I am counting down the days until I can play as Super Skrull.
With the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds quickly approaching, Capcom continues to hype up the internet with the announcement video of two new characters. Akuma from the popular fighting game Street Fighter and Taskmaster an evil villain who first appeared in Marvel Universe in the Avengers.
