Resident Evil 6 is the latest instalment in Capcom’s long running survival horror franchise. With three playable campaigns starring (no pun intended) Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and new boy Jake Muller, it’s a beast of a game. These …
Capcom celebrated the release of Resident Evil 6 in style with a star studded performance headlined by New York rapper, NAS. The event was held at Lure nightclub in Hollywood, California on September 28, 2012. The general atmosphere of the venue itself was just like any other Hollywood club. Full of wannabes and trying to be’s. Yeah, sure, it was attended by the likes of Kendra and Hank Baskett, and Shawn Roberts, however, personally, I find these events to be so ridiculous.
Official social media game industry websites advertise these events “for the gaming community” but you never get that feeling. I had to argue with the people in the media line to let me in and they kept saying it was max capacity inside. 5 minutes after arguing with them, they let me in, mind you the venue holds 1600 people; it looked more like 200 people were in there. This may come off as negative, however I just want to give credit where credit is due. The hard working producers and the fans. Without the fans, Resident Evil wouldn’t have been as big, Without the producers, the game would not exist!

Capcom revealed a new IP during its Gamescom press conference today, called Remember Me, from Paris studio Dontnod Entertainment. It was actually shown last year as “Adrift,” but this year we get to see a lot more.
The game is a third person action adventure game, set in 2084 in Paris. It definitely shows some potential. What do you think?

Capcom is treating Lost Planet 3 in a similar fashion to DMC: Devil May Cry by outsourcing the development to a Western studio: Spark Unlimited and at the same time giving it a bit of a reboot. Lost Planet 3 though, is a prequel rather than a full blown reimagining revealing the origins of Human colonisation on E.D.N. III. I got the chance to get my hands on a demo build of Lost Planet 3 to see if the series is back on track or if it should have been left out in the cold.
