Oh man was I excited to hear this news! Capcom has announced that they will be releasing a new Resident Evil for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC titled Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City takes place during the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3, at the heart of Raccoon City. You take the role of an Umbrella Security Service soldier (U.S.S.), under the orders of Umbrella, to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors (I wonder if this means you’re gonna be Hunk?). On the opposing end, you have your slew of zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W.s) as well as a government issued special forces team tasked to uncover evidence and expose Umbrella. Naturally, you’ll be seeing many familiar locals from Resident Evil 2 and 3, as well as many familiar faces like Leon S. Kennedy, on your hit list.
Operation Raccoon City will be quite a different experience in terms of gameplay. This will be third person team based shooter. I’m not sure if that means the gameplay is going to be like RE5, with more characters, or more like a tactical unit type gameplay, where you can specifically command the other characters. It will also feature a number of competitive online multiplayer modes, featuring battles between teams, and between B.O.W.s.
And one additional note. For those who purchase Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will also have access to a playable demo of Resident Evil: Revelations, where the player can control Jill and explore an ocean liner.
Lot’s of exciting news for all RE fans! Hurray!

At a showcase event held in Tokyo, Capcom made several announcements about upcoming titles, one of which was a new installment in the popular Devil May Cry franchise.
I loved the first DMC, and the third installment was phenomenal. The fourth one was an ok introduction into the next gen consoles… and we won’t even talk about the 2nd one.
For this new DMC, Capcom will be collaborating with Ninja Theory, a UK based company. With this collaboration, Capcom claims that this new DMC will deliver the essence of DMC — stylish action, rewarding combat, and a smart-talking protagonist– with a host of new weapons and new powers, wrapped in a darker, more brutal gameplay.
Just looking at the trailer, this title definitely has a more grimy, but slick new look to it. Even Dante seems to have a re-imagined look to him. We’ll be excited to hear more news regarding this new title! Meanwhile, enjoy the announcement trailer:

And because Mega Man 10 is all old school, there’s not much we need to explain. It’s got all of the classic gameplay mechanics, down to the eight bosses named whatever-man.
Of course, there are some new features as well. Possibly the coolest feature is the ability to play as the mysterious Proto Man from the start. Capcom has also included an “Easy Mode,” for those new to the series, as well as “Mega Man Challenges,” where you can practice and test your mad side-scrolling skills.
Mega Man 10 is available on WiiWare service now. It will be available on the PSN next week, March 11th, and on Xbox LIVE on March 31st.

Anyone who would pre-order Dark Void through GameStop will get Golden Jetpack.
What’s so special about it?
Well, first of all, it’s gold.
It’s gotta be better, right?
This item will give you unlimited turbo boost with special moves.
Yup, that’s a little better excuse than the gold bling.
We personally like the way trailer presents the gameplay so far.
You guys should definitely watch it if you’re interested in fast paced third-person shooter.

Spyborgs’ new screenshots is in.
Capcom wanted to show off “Docks” level from their upcoming title, Spyborg, and we can kind of see why they would want to show it to us. We can clearly see rough edges due to Wii’s low-res limitation, but the textures and design looks very interesting.
The gameplay will support upto two co-op play. It’s a sci-fi action packed game with 35 stages to challenge the players.

If you have played ZEN Pinball for PS3, you know that it’s simply the best pinball machine simulator out there, you know that it’s fun too. With all its modern pinball technicalities, it’s as good as it gets when it comes to pinball games for gaming consoles. And it looks like ZEN Studio, the developers of ZEN Pinball, aren’t going to stop there.
ZEN Studio announced its first DLC for the ZEN Pinball on PS3, though they took some time before they spilled the beans. It wasn’t a huge deal anyway, since we already knew that many developers are trying to satisfy their fans (and their financial status) by releasing DLCs from time to time. It was almost expected. Almost.
But then we heard it was going to be one of the most respected franchise of all time: Street Fighter II.
Nice. Very nice.
In partnership with Capcom, ZEN Studio promised that gamers will be able to see and feel the originality that Street Fighter II has brought us since its memorable debut. And since we’ve already seen what to expect from our ZEN Pinball review, we will focus more on the DLC instead of the whole game itself.
The Stree Fighter II Tribute Table DLC features a total of nine characters from the SF series; Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Sagat, Akuma, Vega, Balrog and M. Bison. Those are just the playable characters though. There are other characters like Blanka or Zangief that help you out to get boost your score. One of the great things about this DLC is that it uses the original sound effects from the Street Fighter series. Whenever the player hits a target and hears the sound, it just brings back so many memories (at least those of you old enough to have experienced Street Fighter II in the arcade). All the quarters we invested, that certain aroma only the arcade has, kids having seizures all over the ground.. Ahh, good times.
The table layout is high quality, as expected. It isn’t an exact replica of real-world Street Fighter II pinball machines out there, but with the unlimited resources the in-game environment has, ZEN Studio came up with their own creative design. We’re glad they didn’t go too far to break the physics though; it feels like a genuine ZEN Pinball table that simulates real pinball machines. All the challenges are well balanced to provide many hours of gameplay, and you can relive some old school SF moments like crushing a car with a flurry of kicks and punches or barrels just waiting to be broken into pieces.
With everything well placed and designed, some of us actually wanted more out of it. It’s as good as any ZEN Pinball player would expect, but some might say that it’s just that; it doesn’t go beyond expectations. For the price, ($2.49 US and €1.99 ) it’s understandable that people would want more. It’s a high quality DLC for sure, but considering that some full downloadable games go as low as $5, the price can seem a bit expensive for one table. But then again, this one table translates into many, many hours of gameplay.
This is the first DLC for ZEN Pinball and so far, we love it. The nostalgia effect is just awesome. It is a high quality DLC that both pinball and Street Fighter fans can enjoy, and we can only hope that ZEN Studio brings us more high quality tables.

A release date for Capcom’s upcoming sci-fi action/adventure title, Dark Void, has been set. It’ll be released on January 12th 2010 for North America, and January 15th 2010 for Europe.
Haven’t looked into this title yet?
Let us enlighten you with a trailer and a few screenshots, as well as the press release from Capcom:
Dark Void’s unique combination of jetpack-booster aerial dog fighting and third-person combat creates a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Taking 3D action to a whole new level, Dark Void’s unique vertical combat system allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and hurl enemies to their doom, bringing a whole new sense of tension and thrill to the player. Will is also equipped with a powerful jet pack which allows for fierce in-air combat, hurtling through the Void at blistering speeds while shooting down anything that gets in his path.
Sounds interesting, huh?
Capcom has been releasing many interesting action games lately, and let’s see if this title follows that trend.

They’ll be facing the G-Type Salamander Akrid boss in online, and the gameplay will support upto four players co-op. Capcom claims that the scale of this boss fight will be greater than expects. I guess sometimes, it plays to be a Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber.

• Massive scale of enemies: Players skill on the battlefield and work as a team will be tested like never before against the giant Akrid. Players will utilize teamwork tactics, new weapons and a variety of vital suits (VS) to fight these larger-than-life bosses.
• Rewards System- Players will receive rewards for assisting teammates and contributing to the team’s success
• Multiplayer modes and online ranking system
• Exciting new VS features- Based on fan feedback, the team has implemented an unbelievable variety of Vital Suits and new ways to combat VS overall . The new VS sytem will have a powerful impact on the way the player takes to the war zone in Lost Planet 2
Not too worry, silver members; you still get to play the demo, but you’ll have to wait until August 26th.
