As a result of a videogame retail job I once had, I somehow ended up with four or five N-Gage units, in addition to a number of memorable titles, like Ashen and The Sims: Bustin' Out. And it wasn't too long ago that had a conversation with the Weekly Geek's Chris Furniss, where I lamented the fact that I couldn't even buy a cheap lunch if I sold the units.

But the N-Gage platform is far from dead: Nokia and Capcom have revealed today that Capcom plans on publishing titles for the N-Gage platform in 2008. The new N-Gage platform is currently slated for a Fall 2007 release, and will be supported across a number of Nokia phones.

"Capcom is dedicated to creating great mobile games," said Capcom's Yosuke Yoneda, "and believes that N-Gage will allow us to bring some of our most famous franchises to the platform."

This is great news for Capcom fans and future owners of Nokia phones that support the N-Gage platform. Me, on the other hand, I'm screwed -- I won't be able to play these new games on any of my five taco shaped cellular devices.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sells over two million in its first week

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate went on sale on October 11th in Japan, and already it has mustered up over two million in sales. The original base game for reference sold roughly 4.1 million units for comparison. Now that it sold over two million, the series doesn't have to be canceled, due to Capcom's new "AAA logic." Just sell yourself to Nintendo already. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom]more

Okay, this Mega Man armor for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is cute

Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...more
