Are you getting chills yet? Capcom certainly hope so, with their drip-feed of Resident Evil 7 teasers and trailers. And they’ve just released teaser vol. 2, ‘Shotgun in a Box’. This time, it’s focused on weapons and ammunition – or more accurately, the lack of them. There’s a damn good reason why the video’s single description reads: ‘Save your ammo… You’ll need it.’ The game’s graphics look absolutely gorgeous, consider it’s a horrifically dingy room we’re in. But perhaps more importantly for old-school fans, it’s nice to see the return of the traditional inventory box – along with the limited … Read More »

Resident Evil 4 is like the Citizen Kane of games – it’ll always be near the top of those ‘Best Games Ever’ lists. We last played it on the GameCube 11 years ago, but after all this time, does the game deserve the praise it gets? So some backstory, for those not in the know. You play as Leon S. Kennedy – rookie cop star of Resident Evil 2, who not only survived Raccoon City’s zombie outbreak, but is also tragically afflicted with a centre parting and a bad case of the too-cool-for-school attitude that define Japanese gaming heroes. You … Read More »

It’s been a strange old day for Capcom and its other zombie series, Dead Rising. First, the Dead Rising 4 achievement/trophy list was leaked – and now the studio has confirmed what we all thought was probably true, but no-one dared to admit. According to games website Videogamer, a Capcom representative has announced that the original Dead Rising games, excluding Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3, will be making their way to current gen consoles and PC. Capcom’s rep told Videogamer that… Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and … Read More »

Resident Evil 7 certainly caught the attention of gamers when it was revealed during E3 2016, not least because, with its first-person POV, it’s so utterly different from anything we’ve seen in the series before (and we’re not counting those FPS spin-offs with their emphasis on hot lead over horror). And according to a Capcom Unity interview with the game’s director, Kōshi Nakanishi, and producer, Masachika Kawata, the game’s not a reboot, but a return the series’ horror roots. During the interview, Nakanishi stated that: It’s not a reboot and we’re not throwing away the series’ canonical storyline. It’s the … Read More »

With the recent release of films such as Warcraft and (if you can believe it) Angry Birds, and with both Uncharted and Assassin’s Creed to make their silver screen debuts soon, we can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend than watching some of the best films based on our favourite video games. Unfortunately, there’s a problem. Most films based on games aren’t very good although, if you are prepared to laugh instead of sigh not get too angry about ruined franchises, they can still be fun! So, without further ado, here is our list of top six game based … Read More »

Whilst there has been no official announcement from Capcom, it seems that a listing on the Xbox One store has confirmed the release date of the Resident Evil 5 Remaster for Xbox One as 28-June-2016.   This information seemed to be further validated by a later Tweet from Major Nelson stating the game could now be digitally pre-ordered and pre-downloaded on Xbox One.

Exact figures for the number of Xbox Ones sold are always a tricky thing – Microsoft, unlike their console rivals Sony, are notoriously secretive about the precise amount in general circulation. But an earnings call from Capcom to their investors has revealed the general number of combined sales. In the call, it was announced that the games studio estimates around 55 million Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners. The console purchases are up through the end of calendar year ’15, our estimate is 55 million units out there which has exceeded virtually everyone’s forecast for the year and now almost … Read More »

It’s not often that a company associates itself with multiple big-money franchises, but one such company is Japanese developer Capcom. Their list of credits include Dead Rising, Lost Planet and of course the omnipotent Street Fighter. We could argued that the title of “Capcom’s most famous series” has slowly been wrested from Street Fighter by a franchise nine years its junior. That franchise is, of course, Resident Evil, which first saw the light of day (or darkness of Racoon City) way back in 1996, the original zombie survival horror which caused a whole new generation of gamers to keep a collection … Read More »
