Capcom Gives Fans Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Today in Retro Gaming – September 30th, 1997

resident_evil_directors_cut_sony_capcom_playstation_psone

When Capcom released the original Resident Evil onto the Sony Playstation console it was unique.  Never before had gamers been presented with a 3D horror game like this before.  No, I am not counting Alone in the Dark here as that was more of a 3D adventure game with monsters.  Resident Evil was a 3D […]

Go 8 Bit Daves Retro Gaming Comedy Show

Video games are fast becoming a major spectator sport these days with games like League of Legends and streaming channels like twitch.tv. And now the UK has Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit! I caught the 4th episode of this comedy video game show on Dave (a Dave Original) at 10pm on Monday. Read on to […]

The Fifteen Most Difficult Genesis Games (That Are Not Battletoads)

Gaiares box (JP)

Last year we held a combination shouting match/kumite among the staff to determine the fifteen hardest NES games, discounting Battletoads. In the end, two things happened. First, you all made it the most-read, most-shared column we’ve ever published–you rock! Second, the local hospital told us if we pulled a stunt like that again, they would ‘accidentally’ […]

If you are reading this then you are probably a fan of retro games.  Just taking a stab in the dark there.  Well, we just found out that Capcom, one of the better retro supporting companies out there, has this package with Humble Bundle full of Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 games.  You better hurry […]

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Flawlessly Ends Trilogy of Arcade Games – Today in Retro Gaming – June 29th, 1998

Street_Fighter_Alpha_3_III_Capcom_Arcade

It is not like Capcom to simply release a fighting game and not milk it somehow.  We saw this with Street Fighter II which has many updates, all of which were additional full purchases, on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Maybe they realized fans were not going to go for that forever by the time […]

What do you do when you are nearly at the end of being able to milk a franchise release?  You re-invent that franchise with better graphics, a new storyline and leave the core elements alone.  That is exactly what Capcom did with Street Fighter Alpha.  Sadly, this gave Capcom yet another franchise, within a franchise, […]

Okay, sure, Mighty No 9 is getting beat like a red headed stepchild by the gaming community, it is making the jump to another platform.  For those that don’t know about Mighty No 9, it is the first game by Kenji Inafune after leaving Capcom.  The sites that are saying there is a “strong” Mega […]

When you think back to the 16-Bit era, what is it that stands out to you the most?  Is it the plethora of original titles that fans got?  Is it the many quality licensed games that were released?  For me, on days like this, I have to go with the second one.  The Great Circus […]

Capcom’s Monster Hunter on Life Support

Monster_Hunter_Logo_capcom

I’ve started noticing a trend in certain video games recently. Developers appear to believe that if you release a multiplayer online game they will maintain an extremely high player base if they release tiny bits of DLC throughout the following months of release. While this can be a noble goal in the case of certain […]

The Addiction of Monster Hunter

Monster_Hunter_Logo_capcom

Monster Hunter, described as a game where you kill beasts that rival mountains and make clothing out of them, is great. It’s loosely based on an old Norse belief from the Berserks, as they believed that wearing the pelt of a bear granted them the power of Odin. Monster Hunter also hints toward a cannibalistic […]
