But Can He? Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition Stuff

By Alice O'Connor on May 13th, 2015.

The Devil may cry, but only if he has twenty bob spare. With Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition [official site] a bit over a month away, Capcom have been sharing more about the snazzed-up re-release of 2008’s demonic murderfest. A price, for starters: £19.99/24,99€/$24.99. A trailers and gameplay videos demonstrating new characters added to this release, for the main course. And for dessert, bless them, they’ve even bumped the PC release up a day to match consoles: June 23rd.

From Zero To Nero: Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition

By Adam Smith on March 23rd, 2015.

KLONK

We might have missed out on the Definitive Edition of DMC: Devil May Cry on PC but the Special Edition of 2008’s Devil May Cry 4 is coming our way. It’ll arrive on June 24th, a few days after the console release, but will include all of the same goodies. Those goodies include a new “Vergil game mode”, allowing players to control Dante’s devilish brother, as well as a mode that replaces the original game’s controllable characters (Nero and Dante) with Lady and Trish.

GFWL-B-Gone: Dead Rising 2 Switched To Steamworks

By Alice O'Connor on March 18th, 2015.

KICK!

You may survive a zombie bite, sometimes, if you hack off the bodypart they nibbled – you’ve got to beat the infection to your heart. Games have a little more time. Dead Rising 2 and its reimagine-o-follow-up Off the Record were born riddled with Games for Windows – Live, Microsoft’s nasty abandoned attempt to make PC games Xbox Live-y, but now they’re free.

As promised, Capcom have cut out GFWL and grafted on Steamworks in its place, though not without complications. To celebrate the switch, they’re holding a Dead Rising Steam sale too.

The Buddy System: Resi Rev 2 Adds Local Co-op

By Adam Smith on March 3rd, 2015.

Without local co-op, there are no boybands. This is a boyband.

When Resident Evil Revelations 2 [official site] Episode One released without the local co-op feature that had been promised on the Steam Store page, I was outraged. So outraged that anyone in the same room might have heard a faint sigh if they’d been paying particularly close attention. It seems likely that Capcom were listening because they’ve added local co-op to the campaign and raid modes of the game, currently in the form of an open beta patch. For anyone who is still unhappy, “refunds are available through Steam”.

Capcom Apologises For Resident Evil Co-Op Bungle

By Alec Meer on February 27th, 2015.

Hello I'm Ian Advertising Standards and I'mma gonna eat your faaaaaaace

You wouldn’t like our Adam when he’s angry. You wouldn’t like it because you can’t tell he’s angry. Capcom releasing Resident Evil 2 without local co-op support, despite publicly advertising the PC version of their latest zombie-botherer as having it, is the closest I’ve ever seen the lad to angry, and he was still as calm as Hindu cows. One day I hope we’ll rile him proper. Except now he’s even calmer, because Capcom have come out and apologised for their apparently “unintentional error.”

Shambles: Resident Evil Revelations 2 Lacks Local Co-op

By Adam Smith on February 25th, 2015.

Alone in the dark

The Steam Store page for Resident Evil Revelations 2 [official site] has listed offline co-op as a feature since preorders began and continues to do so at the time of writing. But the game, now released, doesn’t support local co-op and, according to a statement Capcom have made to VgG24/7, it probably never will.

The PC version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 supports a variety of customisable visual settings and resolutions. The decision to prioritise a single local screen was made to ensure a stable user experience across a variety of different PC settings and devices.

PCs have too many graphics to support splitscreen.

Wot I Think: Resident Evil HD Remaster

By Adam Smith on January 19th, 2015.

Originally released in 1996 and remade in 2002, Resident Evil is one of the giants of survival horror. This new release is the first appearance of the remake on PC and it comes hot on the heels of director Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror. Far more than an object of historical curiosity, it’s a smartly designed and claustrophobic masterpiece.

Dumbrella: Resident Evil Revelations 2

By Adam Smith on December 22nd, 2014.

The opening cinematic for Resident Evil Revelations 2 is below. Why am I posting an intro to a game that I’ll almost certainly never play? I think it’s because after watching it this morning, I moved from almost complete apathy to mild curiosity – I cannot imagine a single human being who would be the ideal target audience for this video. It suggests the game will contain all of the melodrama and convoluted corporate conspiracy nonsense that has accumulated on the series like barnacles on a hull, but will be entirely lacking in horror or humour. Unless you find the name ‘Barry’ particularly funny.

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.
