The crossover biffing of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite [official site] will arrive on September 19th, Capcom announced today. The fighting game will throw more Marvel and Capcom characters together in 2v2 scraps. Capcom also confirmed a few more characters — Ultron, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Rocket Raccoon, Chun-Li, Strider Hiryu, and Chris Redfield — and explained a little of the story. Marvel’s robotic villain Ultron is teaming up with Sigma out Mega Man X to robotify all that grubby organic life, which leads to fisticuffs. Get a peek at the villainous merger in this new trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Resident Evil 7’s free story DLC delayed

The free Resident Evil 7 [official site] story DLC ‘Not A Hero’ is delayed, Capcom have announced. The end of RE7 teased that Not A Hero would arrive in spring 2017, but now it won’t. Capcom say it wasn’t shaping up as good as the rest of the (great) game but they want it to be, so they’ll work on it a while longer. No firm word yet on when it will arrive. For the benefit of folks who’ve not yet played RE7, I’ll not say much about Not A Hero before the cut. Speaking of… Read the rest of this entry »

THE BEEF THAT I HAVE WITH STREET FIGHTER V

SFV

Hello. Usually I write perky upbeat stories about plants and walks but today I have BEEF. It is BEEF with Capcom about a missed opportunity in Street Fighter V [official site]! SO much BEEF I could open a butcher shop or a steak restaurant. It is BEEF so important it warranted a trip to Photoshop to rectify the situation AND I had to remember how to use the color layer mode.

First: context. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
