This Deep Down trailer has plenty of action

Deep Down is coming along nicely, and now you can get a better look at some of the more terrifying creatures in the game. That includes a Mimic treasure chest monster, giant abominations, and tiny gross slug monsters. Everything is looking great so far, and as a Souls fan, I can't wait to give it a try at some point. Hopefully it'll be localized sometime this year.

You can bet real money on Super Street Fighter IV

Even with no money on the line, I get way too stressed out playing competitive multiplayer games. My emotions run wild. I cannot fathom participating in money matches, though the appeal isn't lost on me. Capcom has partnered ...

Review: Strider photo
Review: Strider
by Chris Carter

I was very skeptical when the Strider franchise was handed over to Double Helix. This was before we found out that Killer Instinct was actually a decent game, when the studio was allowed to spread its wings with something other than a movie license title.

Two playthroughs later, and I'm a believer. If Strider is any indication, I really think Double Helix has a bright future ahead of it.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel
by Chris Carter

Although I had an amazing time with Dead Rising 3, the first DLC offering left a sour taste in my mouth. It was a generic add-on that encapsulated some of our worst fears when we saw the initial footage of the game, and playable soldier Adam Kane was one of the worst characters the franchise had to offer.

Thankfully, the second time around is a slight improvement on the broken formula, even if it's not quite there yet.

Tighten up those graphics: Deep Down delayed in Japan

You know, I keep forgetting that Deep Down technically hasn't been announced for release outside of Japan. It's surely coming, though, and besides its reliance on a free-to-play model (I'd rather just pay up front, thanks) I'...

Club a dragon in 2015 with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
by Jonathan Holmes

Capcom has been pretty quiet on their plans to localize Monster Hunter 4, which had the West's small but dedicated Monster Hunter fanbase a little worried. Well worry no more, fictional animal murderers! Capcom has announced that they're launching a new version of Monster Hunter 4 called Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (Monster Hunter 4G in Japan). The game will have more multi-player features than ever before (including online play), plus other as yet unnamed features. 

No solid release date here other than "early 2015" in the West (Autumn 2014 in Japan), which feels like a world away at this point. Still, new Monster Hunter is better than no Monster Hunter, even though we'll all be a full year closer to death by the time we get to play it. It'll be interesting to see if Capcom explains the reasons for the long wait. I wouldn't be surprised if they're holding out to see if the Wii U install base grows enough over 2014 to warrant a simultaneous release on 3DS and Wii U like they did with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
