Resident Evil Village teaser shows it’s not only Ubisoft games that have giant women

Some inhabitants of the RPS treehouse (Alice B) have been extremely vocal in their love of giant women in games, mainly some Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC and then Immortals Fenyx Rising. Those are both Ubisoft games though, so now I get to crow about how influential we are: a teaser trailer for the next Resident Evil Village reveal suggests Capcom have been reading Alice's posts.

Have You Played… Resident Evil 7: Biohazard?

Horror really isn’t my thing. I remember watching the 2012 adaptation of the Woman in Black after school, and leaving the cinema in a terrible state having just seen Harry Potter being put through the absolute ringer. So yeah, to my surprise, I played Resident Evil 7: Biohazard the other day and had a good time.

Monster Hunter: World is being review-bombed over its movie adaptation

Now, we won't be seeing Paul W.S. Anderson's Monster Hunter flick in the west for a good few months yet. But the adaptation's Chinese debut this week saw it face a massive backlash over one racist scene in particular, a backlash that has since spilled over into Monster Hunter: World's Steam reviews and pushed series creators Capcom to distance themselves from the film's production.

Milla Jovovich joins Monster Hunter: World in movie crossover

A Monster Hunter movie from the director of Resident Evil could never actually be like Monster Hunter the game... unless Capcom made the game like the movie. Which they are. They've announced a crossover event between Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and the upcoming movie, where we'll get to play as Milla Jovovich's character from the Paul W. S. Anderson flick and earn her armour for…

Resident Evil Village release month and online mode revealed by ransomware attack on Capcom

Earlier this month, Capcom were hacked by a ransomware attack. They've now announced that personal information of customers, employees, and shareholders has been potentially compromised, but not credit card information. So far, what's being revealed by the attackers seems centered on information about upcoming and unannounced games including a release window for Resident Evil Village and a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise.

Capcom were hacked, but customer info seems safe

The makers of Street Fighter and Resident Evil have reported that a ne'er-do-well got access to their computer systems this week. That's bad. Luckily for us, they say they've found no hint that the unknown baddie got into customer data. That's good. Though I'll be changing the password of any Capcom account I have, just in case. And this happening so soon after hackers reportedly…

Have You Played… Dead Rising?

I never enjoyed horror. Why would I want to engage with media specifically designed to make me anxious and uncomfortable? Not my bag, sorry. Thankfully, zombies often bring the perfect mesh of horror and goofiness that makes the genre far more easy to get into. Telltale’s The Walking Dead, for example, lets you into a world where the horror isn’t in the immediate terror, but…

Resident Evil movie reboot promises to be more Resident Evil this time

Another Resident Evil film is in the works - and this time, it might actually somewhat resemble the series it's based on. That's no shame on the W.S Anderson flicks, of course, that series very much growing into its own brand of action-horror pulp. But with more deets on the upcoming reboot arriving today, our next cinematic take on Capcom's spook 'em up is bringing…

A new Resident Evil Village trailer shows even more nasty werewolves

Capcom showed off another trailer for the next Resident Evil game during today's PlayStation 5 showcase and yup, it's sure creepy. Resident Evil Village is sending Ethan and Mia off to a not so peaceful life in a less than idyllic village. It looks like their new retreat is chock full of occult drawings, rituals, and big, blue werewolves.

Have you played… Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney?

The whole Ace Attorney Trilogy looks better than ever on PC, and if you somehow missed it in the last couple decades, here’s your chance. It’s a story-driven game about two lovers forced to battle it out on opposite sides of the courtroom. They're fighting for their own version of justice whilst also attempting to fight their feelings for one another.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’s final update will add a big dragon, Fatalis

The fifth and final free title update for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will arrive on the 1st of October, Capcom have announced, adding one last megamonster to mash. The big, bad, black dragon Fatalis is coming back, complete with the ruined castle where it's historically fought in Monster Hunter. Yes, absolutely you'll be able to turn Fatalis into a fetching jacket. You'll also be able…

Wesker’s kids will head up a new Resident Evil Netflix series

Videogames are television now. But while everything from Splinter Cell to Fallout is gunning for streaming gold following The Witcher's Cavill-shaped successes, Resident Evil probably makes more sense than most. With a long run of live-action films behind it, the horror series is now getting a Netflix original series, one that follows the plucky Wesker kids as they uncover the no-good rotten antics their dear…

Yoshinori Ono leaving Capcom after almost 30 years

Yoshinori Ono, the executive producer of the Street Fighter series, has announced he's leaving Capcom after almost thirty years with the company. He plans to split this summer, and doesn't say what he's up to next. Ono has become the of public face of pavement punch-ups, hosting video presentations, visiting tournaments, and generally being popular amongst byway brawlers. He's going out in classic Ono style:…

Have You Played… Resident Evil 2 (the remake)?

It's funny how remaking a game can give you a wholly different vibe. The original Resident Evil 2 was a great game for its time, but by today's standards it's as scary as a children's Halloween costume, unless you're playing it for the very first time. The Resident Evil 2 remake, however, is a modern horror masterpiece.

How fighting games reimagine action comics – and why they should be weirder

The marriage between action comics and fighting games is one that transcends mediums: an enthusiastic relationship based on love, mutual respect, and a shared passion for punching people in the face. Some licensed games, like Dragon Ball FighterZ, are played at a professional level in esport tournaments. Others, like My Hero: One’s Justice, are more simple and accessible. Some are team-based, while others are arena…

I don’t know what Capcom’s Pragmata is and I’m okay with that

Perhaps the most enigmatic announcement in Sony's PlayStation 5 stream was Pragmata, Capcom's new... video game? I will be honest: I do not know what it is. Capcom are not saying what it is either. I can tell you it visits a city on the Moon (or a hologram of a city?), where something weird is going on. See for yourself in the trailer below.

Resident Evil Village announced for 2021, with werewolves

During Sony's PlayStation stream today, Capcom announced Resident Evil Village, the next in their horror series. As rumoured, Village brings back RE7 star Ethan Winters and does indeed have werewolves. Or bioweapons who just so happen to look like werewolves, or however RE dresses up monsters these days. It's due in 2021, and looks a little something like this:

Have You Played… Ultra Street Fighter IV?

With Street Fighter games, if you're not a professional esports person, it's generally best to wait a few versions before jumping in. Ultra Street Fighter IV was hands down the best version of that wave of games, as it included all 44 characters, and a range of modes and features.
