Lots Of New Resident Evil 6 Details

Well, does Capcom know how to release stuff or what? While I’m sure most of you have noticed the fine work Mr. Ian Fisher has done this morning, I have the pleasure of updating you on Resident Evil: Giraffe... I mean six.

All I can see is that giraffe in the RE6 logo and now that’s all you see. You’re welcome.  Anyways, Capcom unveiled tons of new details for RE6 at Captivate 2012, but let’s start with the C-Virus trailer.

Devil May Cry Returns With A Video That's A Bit Cool

 

I think we’re 2-0 for surprises today from Capcom as a new Devil May Cry trailer has been released which honestly doesn’t look too bad.  You may recall that we haven’t seen too much from the game in recent months outside of an Inception like stage which featured Dante navigating and ever crumbling and altering terrain.  Gameplay wise we’ve gotten small hints as to what DmC would offer, but major showings on the narrative side of things were alluded to – that is until now.

Lost Planet Returns With A New Game And A New Developer [Updated]

Capcom has done nothing but surprise us this generation in more ways than one.  Not only did the company kick off this generation with a bang through new IPs such as Lost Planet and Dead Rising, but they went on to produce some original titles that weren’t simply variations of the Resident Evil franchise.  That quest for originality, even if it wasn’t a guaranteed success, has resulted in some good and bad moments that at times have sent gamers through a wave of emotions.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City offers a really interesting concept by casting aside traditional survival horror elements for a squad-based 3rd person shooter. Playing as the bad guys during the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3 could have made for a memorable title, but the poor gunplay, control issues, and overall lack of excitement make for a rather dull single player campaign. The multiplayer fares slightly better, but it’s not enough to bring Operation Raccoon City up to an acceptable level.

The Pros: 

+ Great premise and setting

+ Provides an interesting side story to Resident Evil 2 and 3’s events

+ Heroes mode is an interesting take on classic team deathmatch gameplay

The Cons: 

- Too focused on co-op, which hurts the single player campaign

- Guns feel underpowered, which makes the shooting pretty stale

- Melee combat system lets opponents juggle you endlessly or kill you instantly

For a venerable Japanese company like Capcom, it’s a risky proposition to hand off one of your franchises to a Western developer. You could get lucky and end up with another Dead Rising 2, but pick the wrong studio, and something more like the 2009 version of Bionic Commando may be in store.

See What It Takes To Become A Soldier In Steel Battalion Heavy Armor [Video]

For nearly two years it’s been hyped as one of the premier experiences on the Kinect for core gamers and soon we’ll see if Steel Battalion Heavy Armor will deliver the goods.  Scheduled to drop exclusively on the Xbox 360 this year, Steel Battalion’s return will reach some gamers sooner as expected since it’s one of the many games that will be playable at PAX East this weekend. I’m trying my best not to go into angry kid mode since I won’t be attending PAX East to partake in some mech vs.

TL;DR - Mar 1 - Noobz, Stan Lee, Capcom/Sega/Namco

Friday is closing in friends, a couple more hours and we’ll be in the last leg of the work-week before freedom is finally provided! In today’s TL;DR I cover a the release of the trailer for the Noobz film, the announcement that Stan Lee is a playable character in Amazing Spider-man, and the latest information in the continuing saga of the Sega/Capcom/Namco project for the 3DS.

New Devil May Cry Screens Show Intense Visual Flair

As a gamer there are certain things I’m open to seeing in the video games I play.  If a developer opts to take a chance with a game or provide us with an experience that is slightly out of the norm or unorthodox to a degree I’m all for it if the end result is good.  With that said, taking an already established franchise and rebooting it for no apparent reason is a pill that’s hard to swallow no matter what PR talk or reasoning is given. 

XBLA Kinect Game Crimson Dragon Returns With Some Revealing Videos

The Kinect is one of those gaming peripherals which just like the PlayStation Move only has two or three interesting games released a year amidst a flurry of shovelware and other uninteresting consumer bait.  Things may have slowed down for the Kinect on the software front outside of things like the potential gif masterpiece that is Kinect Star Wars and integration in Mass Effect 3, but things are finally picking up and could hit a previously unseen level thanks to the new XBLA title Crimson Dragon.

Potential Mega Awesome Dream Project In The Works Between Sega, Capcom, and Bandai Namco

A video game dream game may be in the works that could in turn be so damn cool that the world will simply implode since such a thing has never been experienced before. Either that or gamers will simply be disappointed by the end result in such a way that mass boycotts will be held against three major companies in the industry.  But here’s the lowdown: earlier today Nintendo teased of a mystery collaboration that’s going on between Capcom, Sega, and Bandai Namco that’s being done for the Nintendo 3DS.

Mass Effect 3 DLC, Nintendo Tease, Street Fighter Announcement - TL;DNR - Feb. 21st

Throughout the day, every day, plenty of stories tend to slip through Shogun’s cracks. That’s mainly because we pride ourselves on being a site that spends a little more time digging and going in-depth with the news items of the day that pique our personal interests… However, I want to try something a little different, a little “new.” Instead of inundating our readers with a plethora of short two-sentence news times through-out the day, I’m going to bundle a couple smaller, but still significant stories into a new segment I’m tentatively calling “TL;DNR” or Too Long; Did Not Read.
