Capcom recently announced they are releasing fragrances based on their videogame characters starting with Mega Man and Proto Man. I decided to have a little fun and created a commercial for their next fragrance: L’Eau de Rufus.
Come on Capcom, make it happen!
Just a quick news flash for those with some extra cash today. Amazon.com is having a Gaming related Gold Box today. Looks to be a little something for everyone PS3, Wii and 360 folk. Some of the hints for specials throughout the day seem to include Ace Combat 7, Harry Potter: and the Deathly Hallows, one of the Street Fighter 4 games, and a few other deals.
Also don’t forget that when you shop through the PS3Blog.net Amazon Store. You help fund all the great content we bring you daily.
I though I’d throw this out to the masses as I recently had a debate with a friend regarding games you’d like to see being re-developed for the consoles of the HD age.
We started off by looking at games that have already been given the HD treatment and I of course mean given a new lease of life. The first game which sprung to mind was the Street Fighter series – quite an obvious one due to it being a massive 2D beat-em-up back in the early/mid 90s. SF always had a huge following, and with Capcom making tons of different versions (anyone remember the Rainbow Edition of SF2? ), they decided to make the jump and give it a next-gen life by bringing out Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4.
NBA Jam is another one that’s due to hit the shelves soon, along with Lemmings which was released on the PSN when the Ps3 was launched back in 2006/2007, and whilst you can look at a long list of games being brought back from the Retro afterlife we decided to switch our attention to just one game we would like to see brought back from the dead and one that we’d love to see in full hi-def glory.
SSFIV will be out April 30th worldwide but what can we expect in the update? Well apart from the new bonus rounds as shown at the start of this trailer there are also soime brand new modes with Team Battle allowing up to 8 players to scrap it out together online which can then be rewatched using the new Replay Channel. There is also an arcade style Endless Battle replicating that coin-op feel with winner stays on rules.
Tomorrow, PlayStation Home will have a few new things to check out, including an all new Uncharted 2 space, which is made from assets directly from the game itself. The space includes three mini-games, one being the Mask Mayhem mini game, where you can search for scattered remnants of an ancient Ganesh mask, which will be added to your wardrobe upon finding all the parts.
There’s also the Torch Race, which I am assuming is just a basic time trial race. And finally, a new battle card game called Fortunate Thieves:
… where players will seek out treasure on maps that are fully dynamic (with weather and terrain effects,) all while using the expandable card pack to thwart one another with a bevy of treacherous tricks.
According to Jack Buser, this is pretty much a full-on game that you’d expect to pay money for (so it’s that in-depth), but is completely free!
Also coming to Home tomorrow are two new spaces for Street Fighter IV and Tekken 6. Apart from both spaces containing content for said games, there will also be 25 alternate Street Fighter IV costumes that will be available in the Mall.
Speaking of the Mall, at the Estates store, you will also be able to pick up the new Penthouse personal space, which is supposed to represent a luxurious urban condo (and with that comes a huge number of new virtual items as well).
And finally, we’ve all been having issues with Home since 1.3 came out, but there will also be a new patch to be released tomorrow morning to coincide with the release of all this content (v1.32), which aims to fix all the server and sign on issues we’ve been dealing with, so it should be far easier to get into Home now.
According to Cydoniax, the publishing is taking longer than expected, so the update will take place on Friday instead of tomorrow.
