Have You Played… DmC: Devil May Cry?

By Adam Smith on December 15th, 2014.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

It’s a mark of how much I enjoyed ridiculously named reboot DmC: Devil May Cry that I’m absolutely gutted because there’s no sign of a sequel. It was the daftest game I played in 2013 and one of the deftest as well. Having alienated many fans of the series before release, by featuring a different brand of posturing pretty man than they were used to, Ninja Theory’s gloriously over the top romp seemed doomed to fail, but it’s a beautifully barmy concoction.

Cross-Platform Punching In Street Fighter V

By Alice O'Connor on December 8th, 2014.

Hadoooooh! Ken! Ken, come look at how fancy this is.

When the announcement of Street Fighter V leaked on Friday, Capcom scrambled around trying to scour the Internet of all the grainy copies of a video which didn’t say much beyond: Street Fighter V exists, and is coming to PC and PS4. They’ve gotten around to announcing SF5 now though, a process which involves a new gameplay trailer and word that- ooh! It’ll have cross-platformer multiplayer across PC and PS4. That’s unexpected, that.

Street Fighter V Exclusive To PC (And PS4, But Whatevs)

By Alec Meer on December 5th, 2014.

screencap from the trailer, so sorry for the TERRIBLE QUALITY

Dead or Alive: Lots Of Clothes And Yet Not A Lot Of Clothes isn’t the only PC fighting game news today. It seems Street Fighter V was accidentally let out of the Capcom bag a little early, replete with a trailer which comes across a little like a men’s fragrance advert.

Resident Evil Remaster Arreiving In Janreuary

By Alice O'Connor on December 5th, 2014.

Now with more guts than ever.

Resident Evil’s Spencer Mansion mansion is looking better than ever in a new 1080p 60fps trailer for the Resident Evil Remaster. It’s come along way since is first appearance in 1996; other parts of Resident Evil haven’t. After chatting with a prettier-than-ever Barry, passing through a prettier-than-ever door, and exploring prettier-than-ever corridors, the prettier-than-ever Jill gets bitten by a prettier-than-ever zombie she couldn’t see because the fixed camera retreated back around a prettier-than-ever corner. Plus ça change and all that. But maybe I’m being a big grump; you’d want it to play the same, wouldn’t you?

Game Dad: Resident Evil Rev 2 Barrying Up February

By Alice O'Connor on December 2nd, 2014.

Thanks, game dad!

It’s not easy, being a game dad – a gruff, burly, bearded figure whose parenting technique is heavy on slitting throats, kicking teeth in, shooting faces, and shouting. I can’t imagine how this works with mundanities like homework, chores, and teenage rebellion, but it seems to work out all right in apocalyptic scenarios. When your daughter/daughter figure is in trouble, a game dad’s gotta do what a game dad’s gotta do. Resident Evil comic relief character Barry Burton has been a dad all along, but a new Resident Evil Revelations 2 trailer shows he’s promoted to the gritty role of game dad. This also brings word of release dates for the episodic game’s chapters.

Wacky Ultra Street Fighter 4: Omega Mode

By Alice O'Connor on September 25th, 2014.

Games is fun.

A balanced game is a beautiful thing, but don’t we all have fond memories of some absurd imbalance? That build order, that shotgun, that map glitch. Competitive multiplayer games strive for balance even more than others, but it can sometimes be a bit sanitising. Craggly bits in games are interesting. How jolly pleasant, then, to see Capcom are making a new Ultra Street Fighter 4 mode more interested in fun than balance. Omega Mode will rework all 44 characters with different moves and abilities, making them feel new or, for some, like older versions of themselves.

Last Week, On Resident Evil Revelations 2…

By Alice O'Connor on September 11th, 2014.

Monster punx rule ok

Episodic gaming! Get the whole family in, crowding round the computer at 9 o’clock on a Monday night, excited to see how they’ll resolve last week’s cliffhanger. Did Wilfred…? And surely Fanny won’t…? Who swiped the Super Shotgun anyway? Oh, if only! Often it’s more like waiting for the next Only Fools And Horses Christmas Special, trying to remember if they were rich or poor last time, and who’s even still alive. Did Del Boy survive that fall through the bar? Was it all a coma dream?

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be properly TV-episodic. Capcom have announced that they’ll release the spooky shooter in four weekly episodes in “early 2015″, which is quite novel and exciting.

Steamy: Dead Rising 2 And Resident Evil 5 Ditching GFWL

By Alice O'Connor on September 9th, 2014.

Hullo gorgeous.

Splintered bones pierce greyed rotting skin. It shambles on, oblivious. It doesn’t notice organs falling out, skin sloughing. We may never fully understand what keeps it alive, if you can call that living. Poor old Games for Windows – Live. [The old switcheroo, we call that one -ed.] Capcom are planning to scrape the withered glands of GFWL out another three of their games, they announced yesterday. Dead Rising 2, its expandalone Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, and Resident Evil 5 are on the waiting list to have new Steamworks organs transplanted in place of GFWL “early next year”.

Wot I Think: Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition

By Alec Meer on September 5th, 2014.

Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition is a game about killing zombies. Lots of lots of zombies, and then lots and lots more. Previously the series has been set primarily in a mall, but now it moves to a GTA-style open-world city. The clock’s ticking, and you – and anyone you can rescue – need to find a way to escape before Bad Things happen. There’s still time to play dress up and build your own mad weapons and vehicles, though. An Xbox One ‘exclusive’ last year, today it releases on PC. Here’s what I made of it.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Announced But Unrevealed

By Alice O'Connor on September 1st, 2014.

What do you even need to get fit for, zombie?

If Capcom’s announcement of Resident Evil Revelations 2 had included any useful or interesting information, I’d have told you about that. As all they offered was a teaser trailer and some artwork, let’s talk about Troll 2. One of those so-bad-it’s-good cult classics, the horror movie (not in any way a sequel to Troll) is about backwoods town Nilbog, whose residents are secretly goblins (not trolls). The goblins eat out-of-towners, of course, but are vegetarian so they magically turn people into plants then scoop up the goop. It made a serious point about vegetarianism, its director insists.

Based on the live-action trailer, the only rational assumption we can make is that Revelations 2 will do the same for fitness culture and those Fitbit wristband computer things.

Bif Pow Oof: Ultra Street Fighter 4 Released

By Alice O'Connor on August 11th, 2014.

Bif!

In my hazy role as news editor of Rock, Paper, Shotgun, I’d like for us to cover fighting games more. They’re fascinating systems of intricate parts I broadly understand enough to mention but fumble horrible trying to execute. “Attack priority, yeah?” I offer. “Invincibility frames? Leave it out bruv!” See, I skipped fighting games as a littlun, as a crone really have the time to teach myself from scratch, and as a serious business professional don’t want to fake it. Shame.

But here, as a token gesture, is word that Ultra Street Fighter IV has arrived on PC.

Re: Remastered Resident Evil – REmake

By Adam Smith on August 5th, 2014.

Has Resident Evil ever truly felt at home on PC? Not-zombie popper Resi 4, the high point of the series, showed up looking a bit peaky but, if memory serves, the ports of earlier games were acceptable. We never did see a port of the cleverly capitalised REmake of the first title though, which debuted on Gamecube back in the day. I played through the whole thing over a couple of days at the end of a university term, when almost everyone else had left the evil halls of residence. Expecting hokey dialogue and the occasional dog-scare, I didn’t expect to be scared into submission before the end of the first night. I didn’t expect Lisa Trevor.

The Resident Evil REmake might not be my favourite game in the series but it is the scariest. And it’s finally coming to PC in a fancy REmastered edition.

Dead Rising 3 Goes Apocalyptic With DLC

By Ben Barrett on July 25th, 2014.

Nick Ramos here, giving his reaction to the term 'pc master race'

Vvvwwwaaaarrrrmmm. That’s the Hans Zimmer style combo zombie warning/incoming news alarm! It also doubles as a word to describe how hot it currently is on the British Isles. It’s here to remind us that not only is Dead Rising 3 making the jump to PC, but has now been renamed to the hopefully exaggerating APOCALYPSE EDITION (emphasis writer’s own). And what do subtitles mean, kids? Additional content, that’s what, you little toerags. This version will be shipping with the four ‘Untold Stories of Los Perdidos’ episodes that were released as DLC on Xbox. Each puts you in control of a different character from the main game and shows how they ended up where Nick, the main character, met them.
