Bam! Pof! Zonk! Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 released

A further good day and SNIKT to you, one and all. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 [official site] has finally arrived on PC, five years after its initial launch. It’s a fighting game throwing Capcom characters from Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and beyond into a big hat with a load of Marvel Comics folks, then shaking the hat until they all get riled and scrap. This here Ultimate edition is the updated version which tweaked a little and added a dozen extra characters, so yes you can see who’d win in a fight between Frank West and Rocket Raccoon.

Resident Evil 7’s DLC returns to the best of Resi 7

I’ll avoid open spoilers here (you can find those, and our thoughts on them, here, if you’re so minded), but suffice it to say that the final act of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] is not the equal of the claustrophobic cat and mouse chase/escape room mash-up that makes the rest of the game such a terrifying triumph. It is, then, a relief to find that the first two rounds of DLC, now available on PC after temporary PlayStation imprisonment, broadly mark a return to what made the Baker house such a successful reinvention of the Resi formula.

Dead Rising 4 coming to Windows 7 and Steam in March

The absurd Windows 10 exclusivity of Dead Rising 4 [official site] will end on March 14th, Capcom have announced. It’ll arrive on Steam and yes, for Windows 7 too. Dead Rising 4 isn’t great, sure, but if you want to mow down zombie hordes while dressed as Street Fighter’s Cammy you might still fancy it. Read the rest of this entry »

Resident Evil 7 serves Banned Footage DLCs on PC today

Two ghostloads of new scares arrive in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] today with the launch of the ‘Banned Footage’ DLC packs. Each adds a mish-mash of new story bits and modes, from escaping a room while in the watchful care of a cannibal to betting your fingers in a Saw-like game of Blackjack. Awful. These DLC packs have been out on PlayStation 4 for a bit because of exclusivity shenanigans but hey, this means I got to live a bit longer without seeing that awful Blackjack. Warning: it is awful. However, the monster wearing a jaunty hat is great. Swings and roundabouts. Read the rest of this entry »

Ice to meet you! Next Street Fighter V character is Kolin

The next pugilist joining the Street Fighter V [official site] roster is someone old, someone new, someone bearfriendly [nice -ed.] and someone blue. Capcom have announced that they’re elevating background character Kolin to playable status, sending her out to ice fools with her cryokinetic powers. She was first introduced in 1997’s Street Fighter III as the personal assistant to one of those Illuminati naughties but will throw her fur hat into the ring on February 28th. Here, check out her chilly moves in this trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Compucrypts: Resident Evil 7 now supports older CPUs

Resident Evil 7 [official site] is a spooky-ooky good time, our Adam will tell you, but some would-be players suffered a f-f-fearul f-f-f-fright discovering their CPU was unexpectedly unable to run it. Good news, oldboxers! If your PC creaks like a spookhouse, crawling with cobwebs and powered by a CPU which doesn’t support SSSE3 SIMD, you can now (potentially) play RE7 as Capcom have released a wee patch yesterday which changed that and nothing else. Short and sweet. Ghostboxes now welcome. Read the rest of this entry »
