The bunch responsible for graciously giving the world Bionic Commando: Rearmed has founded a studio of its very own: Might&Delight. Is that an amazing name for a company or what? As the tags for this post probably gave aw...

Capcom dropped its multiplayer demo for Bionic Commando today, exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. I have to admit, I couldn't spend more than 10 minutes with the thing. That mostly had to do with the fact that the game sim...

Despite Capcom being one of only a handful of third party developers to have done the Wii any sort of justice, bitchy Wii owners love accusing the company of not caring. Apparently, Capcom is obligated to try and bring the li...

Maybe you have fond 8-bit memories like I do, of a time when a "good cinematic" was an image of face with a flashing mouth and a jump button was a luxury. Or maybe you don't, and I have shoes older than you. Ei...
