Assigning New Year's resolutions to major videogame studios
by Kyle MacGregor

It's an annual tradition: Making resolutions to kick off the New Year. There's a whole new arbitrary set of twelve months in which to better ourselves. Or, you know, make the same mistakes we made in the last dozen. It's finally time to quit smoking or start going to the gym. Whatever.

Here's a bunch of words about what videogame companies should do to shape up in 2015.

These Rockman Utopia music samples are so good I want to buy it

For the most part I'm pretty mellow when it comes to videogame music, but every so often something will come along that excites me. E-Capcom put up a few samples for the upcoming Rockman Utopia remix CD, which samples tr...

EventHubs Street Fighter V character poll reveals a terrible crime

Fighting game mega-site EventHubs is running a poll to see which Street Fighter characters fans want to see return the most in SFV. Considering SFV is still pretty early on in development, there is the slim, outside chance th...

Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy  photo
Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy
by Brittany Vincent

The visual novel has been ubiquitous in Japan since the early ‘90s, but in the West they've never truly caught on. Whether it was the U.S.’s love for its own home-grown adventure games like Sierra’s King’s Quest, the SCUMM games by LucasArts, or the absolute pain it is to translate games from Japanese that can be over 450 English pages long, it's never been clear as to why that is. In fact, it wasn't really until the early 2000s that they finally started catching on. The Nintendo DS was the platform many English-speaking gamers experienced their first visual novel on, through none other than Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Resident Evil HD has PS3/PS4 cross-buy if you pre-order

We're less than a month out from Capcom's Resident Evil remaster for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. I get the feeling it's going to do well for the company. Real well. We want more Resident Evil and, barring any techni...

Capcom is delisting Marvel vs. Capcom Origins soon

It's a shame when companies delist digital-only games but it's even worse when they don't give a heads up. Capcom had the courtesy to let us know that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is coming off PlayStation Network on December 23...

Felynes can dress up as Dante, Blanka, and Chun-Li in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

I'm no Monster Hunter player but I'm liking the cross-game costumes for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Well, most of them. In line with today's Devil May Cry re-release news, Capcom has shown a Felyne outfit based on Dante. That...

Capcom re-releasing DmC and Devil May Cry 4 on PS4 and Xbox One with new content photo
Capcom re-releasing DmC and Devil May Cry 4 on PS4 and Xbox One with new content
by Jordan Devore

Devil May Cry returns next year but not with an all-new installment. I know, I know. But this is the age of higher-res re-releases, after all. Capcom will launch DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition ($39.99 / €39.99) on March 17, 2015 and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition (price to be announced) in summer 2015 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

No more talk about how 30 frames per second feels right for DmC; the Definitive Edition runs at a smooth 60 frames per second. The updated game includes all the DLC, a higher difficulty setting, a 20-percent-faster Turbo Mode, Hardcore Mode, popular community mods, and new character skins like Devil May Cry 1 Dante and Classic Vergil. DmC has also been rebalanced.

If you only care about DMC4, not DmC, skip to 1:45 for a quick word from Vergil. Capcom isn't sharing much about the new special edition and notes it'll say more "in the coming months."

Street Fighter V being exclusive might not be the worst thing ever

Ok, yes we all hate third-party exclusives. It's especially grating for a franchise as venerable and well loved as Street Fighter. This is a raw deal for the world warriors out there who have already plunked down money on an ...

Phoenix Wright was almost named 'Roger'

The Ace Attorney series has gradually built itself a small but loyal following outside of Japan. One of the reasons for that is how the games offer an experience that you can't get anywhere else in gaming. Their popularity ha...
