The Devil May Cry HD Collection is a bargain at $39.99, but the title may be misleading to many. The correct title should be, “Devil May Cry kind of HD Collection” The collection includes the original in all its glory, as well as part 2 and 3 special edition as well as a vault of songs and art work. Not bad, right?
Well the problem is Capcom was either extremely lazy or some technical issue prevented them from giving the HD treatment to the cut scenes and menus. Yes, even the menus are 4:3 SD in all their blurry glory for you to enjoy. How this happened is beyond me. The overall enjoyment is greatly reduced when fighting in HD, collecting your first orb, and are suddenly treated by a small screen explaining what the orb is used for. Extremely disappointing.
Capcom just released this second Resident Evil 6 trailer.
Are you excited yet? This is something like a Hollywood Movie trailer. If it was a movie, I would sure as hell watch it!
It was also just announced that …
Lost Planet 3 was just announced to be coming in early 2013.
Early details suggest that the 3rd installment of the Lost Planet series is being developed by SPARK UNLIMITED which produced games such as Call Of Duty: Finest Hour, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, and Legendary.
The main draw of the previous Lost Planet games for me were the VS suits. Giant Gundam like mechas that you can control throughout. Also the addition of the “quick turn” movement was a great implementation in the controls. I would’ve loved to see this movement scheme implemented in other games.
Hit the jump for all the official details, and some screen shots!
During my Daily news dosage, I came across two lovely videos on CAPCOM’s latest Eastern RPG, Dragon’s Dogma. OXM editor Matt Lees explains in the first video a new feature called the Pawn system, which I personally thought is the most innovative feature I’ve seen in a video game in the past 10 years. There is also a second guide video on the classes and skills that you’ll find very interesting.
Videos are after the jump.
Dragon’s Dogma Demo is a go! The fan’s requests have been heard and the Demo will arrive shortly. I’m extremely thrilled to get a hold of this one and try the crafting system. Here is the official announcement detailing what to expect.
Capcom is now giving us a solid release date for Dragon’s Dogma along with a good incentive to purchase Dragon’s Dogma. Resident Evil 6 demo token will be included with every copy which can be redeemed some time in July. This is what capcom had to say
The fighting game genre is back, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. With many of the major fighters expected to make a comeback this year, fans of the genre will have a lot to choose from. And many sore fingers.
1: Soul Calibur V
Starting the year off with a bang is Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V.The weapon based fighter’s return to the spotlight after a near four year absence paves the way for a big year ahead. Soul Calibur V takes place seventeen years after the fourth installment and introduces a new cast of younger fighters, while playing host to returning favorites.
Keeping up with a tradition that began with Soul Calibur II, the fifth game in the series includes special guest character Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Ubisoft’s acclaimed Assassin’s Creed franchise. Tekken creator, Katsuhiro Harada, also gets in on the fun as a special non-playable character in the game’s Quick Match mode. Namco is promising a better online experience with Soul Calibur V, with an improved netcode to prevent nasty lag issues.
Soul Calibur V is due out in North America on January 31st followed by a February 2nd and 3rd release in Japan and Europe, respectively.
