Capcom have sent over the first set of Resident Evil 6 screenshots. They look to be high res renders taken from the debut trailer which means we get a closer look at the zombie president, and other 'orrible creatures afflicted by the latest escaped virus. If it's in keeping with previous Resident Evils, the bioweapon was no doubt created by the least secretive, most evil secret evil organisation ever devised for a videogame, The Umbrella Corporation (and its various malicious subsidiaries). Most of the shots are the dark brooding sort that you'd expect from a series with Resi's survival horror roots, but it'll almost certainly contain lots of action, a la Resident Evil 5, so let's kick things off with an explosion. BOOM!
I've played through Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube at least three times. Today, Capcom announced that it’s bringing the ultimate, high definition version the game to Steam on February 27 for $20, meaning I’ll definitely play through it again. It’s really that good.
Last week, Capcom Senior VP Christian Svensson responded to questions about Resident Evil 6's PC port in the Ask Capcom forum on Capcom Unity. According to Svensson, the PC version did not enter development until after the console versions were "complete, submitted, approved by console 1st parties." With the final console code as the foundation, a team is now building the PC version.
Not to spoil anything, but October 2nd is the release date revealed at the end of the new Resident Evil 6 trailer. More importantly, in that three minutes of undead sizzle you’ll find plenty of old friends from across the RE series (Ada Wong!), an introduction to Albert Wekser’s kid, a Far East location, and the horrific effects of the all-new C-virus.
RPS have dug up the freshly re-animated corpse of some Resident Evil 6 footage. This gameplay trailer depicts blond haired pretty boy Leon heading into a subway tunnel to find it full of zombies, much like everywhere Leon ever goes. The poor guy can't even nip to the loo without a quick time event trying to bite his face off.
Capcom announced today that Left 4 Dead 2's Coach, Nick, Ellis, and Rochelle will be playable in Resident Evil 6's PC-exclusive Mercenaries No Mercy multiplayer mode, and in the other direction, three of Resident Evil 6's zombies will shuffle into the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. The crossover, which is being called "the Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 project" (Capcom's idea, we presume) will be free for both games later this spring.
Resident Evil 6 is out on PC starting today, and as announced by Capcom last week, it will feature PC zombie-slayers Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle from Left 4 Dead 2 in the exclusive Mercenaries No Mercy mode. A new trailer shows them doing what they do best, but the crossover hop seems to have bestowed the foursome with a repertoire of hilariously dramatic melee moves. There's no reason why the barrel-chested Coach would choose to shoulder-check through a horde before roll-diving away to blast an RPG at point blank, but damn if it isn't stylish.
Today's helping of news we didn't post includes a shiny Resident Evil 6 trailer and a quip montage from a truly deranged little girl in Borderlands 2, among others. Also, Gangnam Style synchronized Skyrim dance. Enough said. Head inside for the full scoops.
Leon S. Kennedy doesn't just blow the heads off of zombies and Ganados like a boss. He reloads his guns like a boss, too—and he was doing it before flashy reloads were cool. Shooters released since Resident Evil 4 have added progressively more detailed animations to their gun reloads, but Capcom set a high bar for reloads in 2005. There's something incredibly tactile about the way Leon slams a new round into the bolt-action rifle. And when he whip-cracks open the Broken Butterfly, violently jams new rounds into it, and slams it shut...well, at that point he's just showing off. After playing through the new HD port of Resident Evil 4, I decided to capture Leon's dramatic reload animations in high quality GIF form. Almost every gun in the game is represented below, and the animations are embedded in bandwidth-efficient HTML5 form. Give one a click if you want to share a link or download the original GIF version.
It isn't often we see the words "Origin" and "sale" next to each other, but this week is the exception: EA is running a week-long Player Appreciation Sale which discounts some pretty hefty games in the publisher's lineup—titans such as Mass Effect 3, Crysis 3, and Battlefield 3.
Publisher birthday parties are the best. Rather than forcing you to debate whether a $25 gift card is a crappy gift, publishers simply discount a bunch of games and tell players to have at it. It’s like buying discounted party favors, but with fewer tote bags. Capcom just hit the big 3-0, and has shaved the price off many of its larger Steam titles in celebration.
PC gamers recoiled in horror when Jean-François Dugas, director of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, announced in an interview with Shacknews that Eidos Montreal is outsourcing the PC version of the classic PC game to a joint in the Netherlands called Nixxes. Dugas told Shacknews that the job both was and wasn't being done in-house, and then clarified that the job is a "partnership" with the Dutch studio. It's bracing news, especially for a game that's a cornerstone in the foundation of PC gaming. But while there's good reason to be concerned, there's also evidence that the decision might be a net positive for PC gamers and Deus Ex fans.
Games for Windows Live will soon be dead (hooray!), here's a list of devs removing it from their games
RIP Games for Windows Live, we hardly knew ye. On second thoughts, we knew ye pretty well, and we hated your malodorous guts - good riddance. Of course, with Microsoft's hated games service going the way of the passenger pigeon (I was going to say dodo, but a load of animals have sadly been made extinct since then), there's the little matter of what's going to happen to all the games infested with GFWL. Will they be playable after July 1st, when the service is being taken out to the woodshed to be shot in the head? It's still unclear, but it doesn't seem likely - unless developers take it upon themselves to patch their games. So far, only Fallout 3, Bioshock 2, the Arkham games, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and Toy Soldiers have extracted the service, leaving a few dozen games with the sword of DRMacles hanging over their heads. Thanks to Joystiq, we now at least know which developers and games are aiming to follow suit.
Amazon has 10% off Borderlands 2 - it's not a lot, but it did just release - and a more substantial 40% off The Walking Dead. Meanwhile, Saints Row: The Third is 66% off on Steam and free to play this weekend, the Tribes: Ascend Starter Pack is only $7.49 at GameStop, and Green Man Gaming continues to give out 25% off vouchers (it matches Amazon's Borderlands 2 deal, too). Much more after the break.
Welcome to my humble abode. Do have a seat on that high-back chair. Here, take this brandy, don’t mind the raven above the chamber door, and try not to make eye contact with the scary portrait above the fireplace. Don’t touch the hideous idol on the mantlepiece, either. It almost certainly isn’t haunted, but you can never be too sure. Let’s talk about horror games. They’ve been with us for decades. Alone in the Dark gave us a haunted house to escape from in ‘92. Doom pit players against nightmarish hordes in ‘93, and things have gotten stranger in the neighbourhood since then. Recently, the likes of Slender and SCP Containment Breach have scared half of the internet into a gibbering fugue state, and there are dozens of horror games being assembled in dungeon labs all over the world this very moment. We thought it was about time we celebrated the best of horror, from tense survivalist nightmares to ultra-gib hellspawn massacres. Whether you prefer the loud guns and scripted shocks of FEAR to the quiet dread of Amnesia, there are plenty of horror classics here, but we hope you find something new and terrifying in this 90-strong collection, which includes some of the scariest and strangest games ever made.
It's time for our latest round-up of gaming news from our chums around the internet. OXM have spiralled into Mass Effect obsession, Official Nintendo round up the best 3DS games made so far, OPM try to keep track of who's dead, alive and undead in the Resident Evil series and CVG list the best boss fights ever. Will you agree with their choices? Find out below.
Take a look at this month's PC gamer ladies and gentlemen. Just look, admire is beauty, gentle stroke the gold embossing (well it's on the real thing, honest). My god it's beautiful. This month Chris gathered his legions and annexed The Creative Assembly, looting a preview of Total War: Rome 2 from the rubble and pillaging some Total War: Shogun 2 - Rise of the Samurai DLC codes to give away. He spoke to The Creative Assembly about why they chose to return to Rome, and what this means for the series. You can find out more in our Total War: Rome 2 interviews and our Total War: Rome 2 preview, but the full details are in the magazine.
Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week, the third part of the Assassin's Creed series was announced to much excitement... but to him, it's all just a little bit of history repeating. Okay, see if any of this sounds familiar. It's the present day, and American born William Tibbs has just discovered that he's the descendant of a noble Templar knight - a fact he learns when an assassin breaks into his room and tries to kill him with an axe. While he survives, mostly by dumb luck, he's soon captured by his enemies and forced to relive the life of his ancestor circa 1329. His mission? To track down a set of magic weapons forged by the precursors of mankind. His family symbol? A falcon. Oh, and the cherry on top? There were three Time Gate games planned, though only one was ever released, and the start of this adventure shows when they'd have been set. The first? Templars. The second? Mumble mumble not relevant. But the third? The American War of Independence. Ubisoft, consider thyselves well and truly busted!
