Mega Man the laptop is Capcom's ace in the hole

For a minute there, I was worried that Capcom was dragging its feet, unable to think about the proper way to revive the Mega Man franchise. I should have had more faith!

Taking a page from Sega's playbook, Capcom has announced a partnership with Intel to produce a batch of Mega Man-branded Ultrabooks. Over on the Rockman Ultrabook site, you can vote on one of four designs based on preexisting Mega Man artwork, because making brand new, original art would just be going overboard. But if none of those picks suit your fancy, you can also submit a suggestion of your own.

There will be a couple more polls next month, then pre-orders will open on March 29 for shipping in July. If it's like Sega's mini notebooks, it will likewise be expensive and Japan-exclusive.

Capcom did it, you guys. WE did it. Things are looking up.

Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2: Episode 2

I didn't expect to enjoy the first episode of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 as much as I did. It was nice to see Barry and Claire back in action, and the co-op elements were implemented in a neat asynchronous manner. Not ...more
