    Capcom to release DuckTales Remastered

    PAX East has launched and Capcom starts it with a bang as they announce DuckTales Remastered. The title will be published by Capcom and created by WayForward Technologies. The new version is a remaster of the classic NES title. There will be some new features added. The new version has new hand-drawn sprites, and will feature original voice work. It’s coming to Wii U, PSN, and XBLA for $15. Basically a must buy for me. I loved the original game. Here is the reveal trailer: Ah nostalgia! I love it! Follow

    Capcom sends Holiday Wishes & Angels in booty shorts

    It’s that time of year where we are getting fun Holiday cards from various video game companies. I was going to accumulate all of them into one post later in the week, but I had to post this one from Capcom. I know I’ve been out of gaming for awhile concentrating on Pumpkin, but what in the world is this image from? Who is the guy? Why are the angels half naked in booty shorts? Does that say Holiday Wishes to you? The angels seem to be staring at something in his lap? Here is the full image: I’d love to hear some ideas as to the concept behind the card before I personally decide how I feel about the card. Can’t make decisions without all the information right?

    Free ‘Resident Evil 6’ Updated Confirmed for December

    On Wednesday Capcom confirmed that an update for Resident Evil 6 will be available in “mid-December” for PS3 and Xbox 360 owners. The update will add a “No Hope” mode which is supposed to be “really tough,” as well as co-op for Ada Wong’s campaign. Because, you know, we were totally waiting for that. In addition, the update will make Ada’s campaign playable from the get-go, as opposed to an unlockable after completing the rest of the other three campaigns. Also, it sounds as though they’re fixing the camera zoom and control which will be a boon. This is the update that, a couple of weeks ago caused a tizzy when it was discovered on -disc, leading many to believe Capcom was back to its on-disc shenanigans. Fortunately, Capcom revealed that it was really a free update, and that RE6’s DLC plans are far more robust and decidedly not on the retail

    Resident Evil 6: Haters gonna hate?

    Last week, people all over the interwebs were bashing Resident Evil 6 left and right. No matter where I turned, there was complaint after complaint about everything from QTEs to Piers’ weapon load out. The negative reception to a game that Capcom has been touting as, like, the goddamn messiah of the Resident Evil series (a series that, as you might know, I love by the way) was almost overwhelming, really. I had followed the project since its announcement back in January and I enjoyed what I played in the demo so, naturally, I took a very keen interest in all of the hate and all of the flat-out nitpicking that was going on left and right. (Because, honestly, who cares if the QTE button prompts flash when you execute them correctly?) Anyway, as you might have guessed, I’m totally enjoying my experience with Resident Evil 6 – not just

    Resident Evil 6 Review

    Rating:  M Genre: Horror Publisher: Capcom Developer:  Capcom Release Date:  10/02/2012 RENT When Capcom first promised fans that Resident Evil 6 would return to its roots, many were skeptical, and with good reason. For many older gamers, the RE franchise is firmly rooted in its survival horror heydays of the mid-90s. In 2001 they took a sharp turn to a story-driven affair with Resident Evil CODE: Veronica, and then another deviation with Resident Evil 4 in 2005, turning the series into more of an action shooter. All of these twists and turns left many fans wondering to which roots the series will return. Answer: all of them…kind of. Not really. Mixed bag In an attempt to cater to everyone, Capcom broke the game into three main campaigns: Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Jake Muller, who is Albert Wesker’s son. Leon’s campaign is a return to the old days, but unfortunately, it isn’t

    Capcom teases fans with possible ‘Resident Evil 2’ remake

    Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, a producer at Capcom, teased fans by suggesting that a Resident Evil 2 remake could be a possibility. He stressed, unequivocally, that they are not currently working on such a thing, but that if fans really want it, they would consider it. Speaking to GameSpot, Hirabayashi said: “Just to lay all the cards on the table, that way there’s no rumor-mongering or things like that, no, we are not working on a Resident Evil 2 remake as of now. But if the fans really clamor for it; if there’s a groundswell of support for remaking that game, then I think that’s something Capcom would take under consideration.” For you young’uns out there, Resident Evil 2 is, quite arguably, considered the pinnacle of the franchise as survival horror. The game was originally released in 1998 on PS1, and featured fan favorite Leon Kennedy as a Raccoon City Police Department member making his way through

    Resident Evil 6 Hands-on Preview

    Resident Evil is one of the few game franchises that I absolutely love. Ever since the original debuted in the dark ages of the PlayStation era, I have rabidly followed the series, getting ridiculously excited about new installments yet somehow never getting the chance to play them at release. However, I am finally current on the series, and the timing couldn’t have been better, as it has given me the chance to enthusiastically prepare for the upcoming Resident Evil 6 (RE6), which is due out at the beginning of October. The months of waiting have turned into mere weeks, and in order to help fans like myself get through the final leg of this metaphorical race, the good folks at Capcom have gone ahead and released a short demo that is now available on Xbox Live and PSN. Clocking in at a total of around forty-five minutes, the three playable

    Zombies, and Lickers and… Children?! Oh, my!

    *Stop! Mild story spoilers for Resident Evil 5 (and possibly 6) ahead! If you haven’t yet played it, you have been warned! A couple of months ago I had a very strange conversation with my then five-year old daughter: We sat at the kitchen table and discussed T-Virus versus C-Virus infection. Questions were asked and answered, some basic biology was discussed, and some rather adorable banter ensued. On the other side of us, my three-year old listened intently before enthusiastically asking me to play the E3 video of Leon Kennedy’s epic trek through the zombie-infested streets of Langshiang, China. Yep; my kids are fully aware of the Resident Evil games, and they love them. I know, I know – one of the cardinal rules of parenting is to never, ever, under any circumstances let your young children see any sort of violence or carnage, lest they become chainsaw wielding psychopaths. However,

    Resident Evil 6 Demo Available

    If you’re one of the few not planning to play Borderlands 2 today, then you can download a brand-spanking new demo of Resident Evil 6. Brand-spanking new as in it’s not the same one that came with Dragon’s Dogma. According to Capcom’s press release, the demo presents the following: Play as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper and further explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, swarming with the victims of the latest bioterrorist attack. The action in Jake’s mission switches to the neon-lit streets of Lanshiang as he and Sherry Berkin fight off the new J’avo enemies, including their fully mutated forms. Jake’s special hand-to- hand combat moves and Sherry’s stun baton are pivotal in their struggle to stay alive. Showcasing the global setting in Resident Evil 6, Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans head with fellow BSAA team members to the war-ravaged streets of Edonia.
