Resident Evil Spin-off Umbrella Corps Coming In May

Seeing Resident Evil 4’s wee village of cultists again pleases me. I’ve missed that place. Seeing two teams of heavily-armed mercenaries scampering up its houses with climbing axes and stealthily crawling around on the floor is interesting too, as something familiar becomes so very alien. Weird! A new trailer for the multiplayer shooter spin-off Umbrella Corps [official site] visits that muddy village, see. It also brings news that the game will release in May, see:

Street Fighter V Getting Cinematic Story After Launch

With Street Fighter V [official site] only a few weeks away, Capcom have opened up a bit more about what the man-puncher will offer on the story side of things. Given that Capcom are taking SFV a bit ‘games as service’, adding new characters and things in updates rather than new editions, it’s no surprise that story will come in similar ways. Along with the typical Street Fighting stories, which will be embellished with pretty pictures, it’ll have a cinematic story mode–but this will come four months after launch.

Boo! Resident Evil 0 HD Released

Why don't you make like a tree and- wait, are you a tree? Or... yeah, well, look, just get out of here.

Cor, have you been following the Resident Evil 4 HD Project? I’m still amazed by their attention to detail in recreating textures and tweaking models, and even tracking down places Capcom photographed for texture bases.

In comparison, Capcom’s own official HDifications of the survival horror series are a bit unexciting. But hey, they are bringing the games to PC and they are making them play nicely with modern systems and whatnot, so sure! The 2002 prequel Resident Evil 0 [official site] is their latest, released yesterday. It’s the one with all the leeches.

Wot I Think: Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

Originally released on PS3/Xbox 360 back in 2012 and then updated to Dark Arisen in 2013, Dragon’s Dogma [official site] is a tough game to pigeon-hole. It’s a bit Dark Souls, a bit The Witcher, a bit Skyrim, and a bit Shadow of the Colossus. But is it a bit good, especially coming to us after a generational upgrade? Here’s Wot I Think.

Street Fighter V Supports Steam OS , Beta This Weekend

Street Fighter V [official site] will run on Linux. There’s a sentence I never expected to write. Through the Steam community pages for the game, Capcom have confirmed that the latest in their glorious series of biff ‘em ups will support Steam OS.

“We are working closely with Valve on this endeavor, and will have more details to announce in the near future, so stay tuned for updates. Street Fighter V will also support the Steam controller, and you’ll be able to try that out right away during the upcoming beta test that takes place from December 18~20.”

The beta is open to anyone with a preorder.

Every Dogma Has Its Day: Dragon’s Dogma Out Jan 15th

When I watch trailers for Dragon’s Dogma [official site], I’m not quite sure what I’m all excited about. It looks like a hacky and slashy RPG with some big ol’ monsters and a full party system, and that’s fine, but what makes it stand out from the pack? It’s the voices of friends who played the console release that elevate it rather than anything in the videos – someone once told me that Dragon’s Dogma is like a party-based Dark Souls and I was sold there and then.

And that’s why I’m excited that this latest trailer reveals that the game comes to PC on January 15th, even though the trailer itself isn’t all that exciting.

Dragon’s Dogma Trailer Clambers Up A Cyclops

Capcom’s party-based action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen [official site] sounds great, from what I’ve heard, a weird new surprise from a company who spend too long mining former glories. I’m sold simply on the idea of you and your AI pals clambering up big beasties to stab soft spots, really. I was writing for a multiplatform site when Dragon’s Dogma first came out on consoles, so I’ve seen a whole lot of it, but maybe you haven’t? Here, watch this new video that’s somewhere between an introduction and a collection of tips:

Street Fighter V Hitting The Streets On February 16th

You’ve got four months to build thumb callouses by tapping on walls, work on your speed and agility with shadowtapping, and build bone density destroying a bamboo stem with your phalanges, as Capcom have announced Street Fighter V [official site] is coming on February 16th, 2016. They’re also confirmed the stretchy Dhalsim is returning for the brawl, and spoken a bit more about their plans to keep adding new fighters in updates rather than new releases.

Street Fighter V Enters Beta October 24

Capcom have announced the first Street Fighter V [official site] beta test on PC, to run October 24-25. And if you’re sick of that PS4-owning mate who’s been bragging on about getting console access to the beta two days prior, you’ll be able to kick his virtual arse as the beta features cross-platform play.

Street Fighter V: Laura Gets Leaked, Zangief Gets Trailer

It appears Laura – a Brazlian jiu-jitsu-fighting, lightning wielding, half-finished braided hair-sporting brawler – is to be the next brand new addition to the Street Fighter V [official site] roster of characters. Although Japanese publication Famitsu posted and then pulled several images of Laura stepping-to with Ryu on Friday, NeoGaffers were quick to capture the action shots and thus allow me to deliver them to you right now. Oh, and Zangief’s in and has a new trailer. Happy weekend.
