Mega Man 10 is happening

Rocky Balboa had one good fight left in him. After demonstrating to a brash young Mason Dixon that old people can still bring the noise, the Italian Stallion hung up his gloves for good. However, there is another Sly Stallone character who after making a literal killing coming out of retirement desires to embark upon a fifth adventure.

Mega Man is more like John Rambo in this regard.

Nintendo Power has just revealed that Mega Man 10 is on its way to WiiWare sometime in 2010. PSN and XBLA releases have yet to be confirmed, but it’s pretty much a sure thing. Read more… »

Today Capcom revealed some new details pertaining to Resident Evil 5‘s DLC. According to the publisher two new episodes will be released.

The first episode, dubbed “Lost in Nightmares,” will serve as a prequel mission where Chris and Jill must infiltrate Oswald Spencer’s mansion, as seen in the beginning of Resident Evil 5. Little is known about the second episode except that it will include a “Mercenaries Reunion” mode that features “8 new playable characters and weapon load outs.” Read more… »

Even as someone who is into fighting games as a competitive medium, I still find myself strangely excited about this news! This week’s issue of Famitsu revealed that Super Street Fighter 4 will see a return of the bonus stages of Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 3. The ‘wreck the car’ bonus stage is practically confirmed, but we have yet to see what other bonus stages will be included.

And, for those of you who were hoping for less kitschy news, we’ve got some of that, too. When SSF4 was first announced, it was announced that there would be improvements to online play. The Famitsu article also provided the first news of what new online modes we can expect from the new and improved online experience.

Halloween is here, and so I thought it would be a good idea to have a reunion with a classic horror game of the past.

When it comes to survival horror and Resident Evil, the two will never be separated, despite its evolution. Although Capcom’s previous title, Sweet Home, was the true pioneer of the genre, and Alone in the Dark had created the recognizable framework that later titles would copy, it is Resident Evil that represents the “everyman” of the genre.

The game’s creator Shinji Mikami was originally tasked with making a survival horror game set in a haunted mansion. However, he thought that things needed to be more visceral in order to have a more significant scare impact. Mikami, inspired by George Romero’s films, therefore decided that zombies would be a more appropriate enemy than ghosts.

The resulting blend of extreme violence and lateral thinking was named Bio-hazard. Unfortunately, Capcom realized that they would find it extremely difficult to secure a trademark under that title. Resident Evil was thus born, and it arrived on the PS1 in 1996. Hit the jump for more fond memories. Read more… »

It’s no secret that Resident Evil 5 has been a huge smash worldwide.  As of the latest sales figures, the game has sold over five million copies globally making it the most successful game in the series.  Being the most popular Resident Evil title, there are undoubtedly many new players to the franchise, as well as many returning veterans.

Hither to, Resident Evil 5 is undoubtedly a great game in of itself, but as the next installment in the long standing series, many fans feel the game has departed from the survival horror genre.  Thus, it begs the question: what has Capcom changed so much over the years to abandon its roots?

residentevil5alternativeedition vote

Ever since Resident Evil 5‘s “Alternative Edition” was announced, gamers have been debating whether or not the content should be released as DLC. Today Capcom opened a poll allowing gamers to vote on whether the Alternative Edition should arrive in North America via DLC or on a completely new game disc.

Capcom’s Chris Kramer stated “[The physical re-release] makes absolutely perfect sense for the Japanese gaming market, where the uptake of digital content is a bit behind the western markets.”
