Ultra Street Fighter IV: Reviews round up

Despite Capcom’s general abusive DLC practices, I actually kind of like what they’ve done with Street Fighter IV. The game was first released on consoles in 2009, and has since been iterated and updated rather substantially since. Yes, Capcom’s been updating the game the way did with Street Fighter 2: adding characters, levels, mechanics and stupid prefixes and suffixes to the game’s title. The latest, and quite probably last (unless there’s a balancing update) iteration is Ultra Street Fighter IV – which is available today. How is it?

Check out the beautiful visuals of the Tokyo Game Show 2014

I’ve been to a number of trade shows, but I’ve yet to turn in a solid hat trick for my E3 and Gamescom trips by throwing the Tokyo Games Show into the mix. It’s the one show that I’d be both excited and terrified to travel. Excited because Japan! Terrified because I’m the kind of guy who gets hopelessly lost in countries where people speak a language that I understand.

Capcom’s making money again

Last year was Capcom’s least profitable year since 2006. The company’s been in financial doldrums for quite some time – but it looks like things are starting to pick up for the publisher. The company’s divulged its fiscal report ending March 31, 2014, and it’s actually making money.

Lazygamer Retro Wednesday: Capcom Play System

So it’s a week late for a lot of reasons, mostly because I’ve been busy moving into another place, and secondly, all the photos I took didn’t actually save to the camera, so awesome.

Street Fighter and Twitch unite for the Capcom Pro Tour

Start training your thumbs with various exercises while playing Eye of the tiger on an infinite loop, because Capcom and Twitch are tag-teaming to start a year-long Street Fighter league.

Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition arrives on PC next month

Resident Evil games have been a very different beast as of late, jumping out of horror and into action. With disastrous results, because I never ever want to play Resident Evil 6 again. One zombie horror game that I would go back to however? Resident Evil 4, which has just been tarted up with HD visuals.

Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle trailer

Say what you will about the Xbox One and its lack of local release date, I’m still excited for the thing (I’ll have my cheque now, thanks). Mostly, I really want to kill a bunch of zombies in Dead Rising 3, a game I’ve been keen to play since it was first announced. If you’re one of the lucky few locals in possession of Dead Rising 3 (and a lot of bandwidth to spare,) here’s some info on its new DLC, Broken Eagle

Deep Down’s engine will impress you

Capcom’s then-unnamed Deep down was one of the more interesting things shown at the Playstation4 reveal event in February last year. With a fantasy setting, and some incredible visuals  ( and that fire!) many though it might be a next generation Dragon’s Dogma. It isn’t (for better or worse!), and it’s going to be a free-to-play game, but it’s going to impress the hell out of you.

Deadpool disappears from all online stores

So 2014 has rolled around and you have finally decided you want to play the 8th worst game of 2013, Deadpool? Well you’re year is off to a bad start unfortunately as you can’t anymore.

Capcom is learning from its missteps says Dead Rising 3 producer

The last couple of years have not been kind to Capcom. Once a powerhouse company that could do no wrong, recent releases have either been absolute failures or just poor performers at retail. And with the gaming industry being as unforgiving as it is, such performances don’t bode well for even the biggest of developers. But Capcom could be poised for a return to solid gaming.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies review

I have to admit, I'm a huge fan of misdirection. I love it when a game (or a book or even a movie) starts off in one direction, lures you in, and while you're confident that you have a fair understanding of its motives, it rattles your cage. It leaves you in a state of contemplation. It's not as simple or as mundane as a lazy plot-twist, but rather the art of hiding deeper philosophical questions behind a façade of simplicity. Spec Ops: The Line hid a deeper message under the guise of “a military shooter,” and in similar fashion Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies takes on the legal profession.

Dead Rising 3 review round-up

Neeeeed…more…launch gaaaaaames. If there was an Xbox One game that had both myself and Geoff drooling at E3 this year, it had to be Dead Rising 3.Brash, violent and in your face with a chainsaw duct-taped to an oar, the game was plenty of fun. The embargo has lifted for Dead Rising 3, and the critics have plenty to say about the running dead simulator.

Dead Rising 3’s frame rate issues persist

Right now, Dead Rising 3 is just about the only launch period exclusive (along with Peggle 2!) that’s getting me excited for Microsoft’s Xbox One. When I first saw it at E3 and later played it at Gamescom, it suffered from some pretty jarring frame-rate issues. At a more recent build at our own rAge though, it was rough around the edges, but buttery smooth. Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry got to test an even newer build…and it seems the frame rate issues are back.

Resident Evil 5 is Capcom’s best selling game

Capcom’s revealed that survival horror action shooter Resident Evil 5 has become the company’s best selling game, usurping Street Fighter II’s position as the biggest home gaming breadwinner.

Dead Rising 3’s getting a season pass too

I am pretty damned excited for Capcom’s Xbox One exclusive, Dead Rising 3. It may look all serious, but it got that irreverent and wacky gameplay you’d expect from Dead Rising. This new announcement though, tempers that excitement a little. Like a certain other Xbox One launch game, it’ll be getting a Season Pass – which means a ton of DLC has been announced before the game is even out.
