Capcom's getting a pretty good jump on 2012, with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Street Fighter x Tekken and Akura's Wrath set to launch sometime around the spring.  But the company also has a few classics in store, as it's repackaging eight Xbox Live Arcade favorites in a retail collection exclusively for Xbox 360.  Fans may appreciate it, but couldn't have Capcom done a little more with it?


Capcom's still riding that zombie train pretty quickly.  Just a few weeks after the release of the spin-off Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, which chronicles the return of zombie-bashing Frank West, word has slipped out that the next game in the series, aptly named Dead Rising 3, is in the works.  Info on the new protagonist and story have also been revealed.


Even though it has its certain gems, like MotoHeroz, MDK and several Mario classics, the Virtual Console service for Wii has a hard time keeping up with the more contemporary Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network providers.  Perhaps it's just a general lack of interest, or developers trying to work on stuff for the upcoming Wii U.  But not everyone has given up, as Capcom is working on a revamped Genesis favorite with an interesting new feature.


Happy Halloween to everyone from  While you're probably out and about getting your trick or treat on (or watching a good horror flick, like us), we do have a small piece of scary game goodness for you, straight from Capcom.  It appears that another pair of Wii games are getting the transfer treatment to the PlayStation 3 next year with the forthcoming Resident Evil Chronicles.  Hey, why not?  It worked for House of the Dead: Overkill.


Following the release of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica X in HD for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, Capcom continues to bring their older titles to newer consoles, this time with the Devil May Cry HD Collection. The collection will include Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition.


After backwards compatibility for Playstation 2 games was cut from later releases of the PS3, many have wished desperately for a way to play the gems of the PS2 era. It seems that wish is finally being granted with five PS2 games coming to the Playstation Network, among them God Hand. To find out what else is on the way, read on.


I was saving something like this for Halloween, because that just makes sense. A diatribe about horror themed video games being written in October? Yes, that is what should happen. But damn man, after seeing Silent Hill: Book of Memories, these things must be said now. Video game industry, I just have to ask: why do you not want to scare us anymore?


Capcom has been turning quite a few heads at this year's GamesCom event, between two new revealed characters for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ninja Theory's intriguing take on Devil May Cry (merely named DMC), and a new Steel Battallion game.  But before you need to worry about finding space for a behemoth 40-button controller, similar to the one that worked with the first two Battallion games on Xbox, you can relax.  This one uses an interesting new control scheme that utilizes features from both a regular controller and the Kinect.  But is this a coalition that can truly make this game go places -- or merely an annoyance?

The video game industry is starting to changes in the way it handles DLC, namely offering up packaged deals that can offer discounts such as the Rockstar Pass and the Mortal Kombat Season Pass. Sony is jumping on that bandwagon by offering the Playstation Network PLAY program, a group of 4 games that, upon purchase of all 4, will score you a free game in PAYDAY: The Heist, a game some have been raving about since its showing at E3. While getting a free game is always a good thing, the cost to get it seems a bit steep.

There are several competitive video game tournaments out there that can really bring out the best in players.  This weekend, a lot of folks are invading Anaheim to see what the MLG crew can do (and with that, lots of love to Jessica and Kelly, you two got game!).  However, if you're an avid fighting fan, chances are you're watching tournaments taking place at the EVO Championship Series in Las Vegas, Nevada.  As you should be.

When Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 first came out, there were some pretty questionable omissions in terms of characters on the roster. While Capcom did make room for plenty of newcomers such as Dante and Zero, characters such as Ken and Strider were certainly missed by fans of the series. Luckily for them, one of the series veterans will, in fact, be making his return as Strider Hiryu will be one of the 10 new characters in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. If you aren't a believer just by reading it, check out this gameplay trailer released by Capcom.
Much like the Street Fighter series, Capcom is following the same path of adding more characters to its Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 title by making a brand new edition of the game titled Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The new release will increase the roster size to a total of 50, adding 12 characters to the roster - 10 brand new characters, as well as Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine who were available as DLC characters. To follow up the game's reveal at Comic Con, Capcom has released trailers of some of the new characters. The first trailer is of Firebrand, an enemy many people will know from the Ghosts 'N Goblins.

The creepy Resident Evil atmosphere is definitely on the rise this September.  Along with the official reveal of Capcom's latest Resident Evil game, RE 6, it's just been confirmed that two long-awaited high-definition remakes will be digitally available that month as well.
