Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition comes to Steam on February 27

Emanuel Maiberg at

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.


Marvel pulls Deadpool and other games from Steam

As 2013 drew to a close and with only a few hours left until the end of the Steam Holiday Sale, Marvel pulled Deadpool from Steam. Deadpool, which was deeply discounted during the sale, was one of several games Marvel pulled from all digital storefronts at the end of 2013.

A post on Capcom's official website reveals that Ultra Street Fighter IV will come to PC in August. Players who own Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will be able to purchase it as an upgrade for $15 rather than at full retail price.


Ultra Street Fighter 4 reveals two new battle systems

Patrick Carlson at

With Ultra Street Fighter 4 smashing its way onto the PC sometime early next year, key changes to the next iteration of the venerable fighting game series are starting to be surface. Capcom is altering the game’s battle system with some tweaks to combos as well as working to eliminate the chance of landing a so-called unblockable attack on an opponent.


Capcom looking into options to handle Games for Windows Live shutdown

Perry Vandell at

With BioShock 2 and the Arkham games abandoning the quickly sinking Games for Windows Live ship for the SS Steamworks, players are asking publishers a common question: “Will I be able to play my games after Games for Windows Live is gone?” Capcom started getting the brunt of the attention last week, though it appears the company’s still mapping its escape route.


Capcom celebrates 30th anniversary with Steam sale

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.


Lost Planet 3 releases on August 27

Katie Williams at

It was almost exactly one year ago that we heard anything from the ice-ridden third-person action-adventure Lost Planet 3. Last year's Gamescom trailer was surprisingly crisp, but those giant squealy bug things burrowed back into the snow and have lain dormant till now. A Steam pre-order campaign went up awhile ago without much fanfare, but now Lost Planet 3 is finally on the cusp of release, with North Americans gaining access to the series' newest addition on August 27. Hey, that's tomorrow!


Ultra Street Fighter 4 will drop Games for Windows Live

Phil Savage at

Ultra-kill! The ultra in question being Ultra Street Fighter 4, Capcom's most superlatively titled version of the game to date. The kill? Games for Windows Live, which has again been sent flying from a series in a slow motion KO arc. The removal of the unpopular service was confirmed, via Twitter, by Neidel “Haunts” Crisan, an employee at Capcom.


DuckTales: Remastered review

Robert Hathorne at

Swan-diving into a vault of gold is a funny thing. On the one hand, you’ve got so much gold, you can swim in the stuff. On the other, gold is a soft metal, but it’s not that soft. As you’re barreling towards your fortune at 9.8 meters per second, thinking about how lucky you are, you’ll have just enough time to realize what a silly decision you’ve made before breaking your face on a glimmering treasure pool. I had a similar experience as I nostalgia-dove into DuckTales: Remastered 17 years after my first experience with the original 1989 NES version.


DuckTales Remastered shows off 30 minutes of new footage at Comic-Con

Tom Sykes at

DuckTales Remastered is a thing that exists, and now it's a thing with a whole load of gameplay footage to pore over, so we can decide whether it lives up to the well-regarded NES original. Capcom took the HD remake to Comic-Con this weekend, and Destructoid captured thirty minutes of video of the Himalayas stage, which is not quite up there with the moon stage in terms of catchy chiptune noises, but still. In other news, no one appears to be working on a Chip 'n' Dale remake, so there's obviously no justice in the universe.


Strider being remade by Capcom, plans to flip onto PCs next year

Phil Savage at

Strider! Apparently it was a beloved side-scrolling arcade platformer made by Capcom. It's coming back, for PC and other electronic entertainment devices. This is probably good news. Unfortunately, Britain never had the same arcade culture enjoyed by America and Japan. Sometimes you'd find the occasional cabinet devoted to synapse-firing displays of sound and light. More often, it was rows of machines where you'd insert a penny, which would fall into a pile of pennies, and maybe help push more pennies out for you to collect. You didn't really want to win those - there are very few situations in which having to carry a lot of pennies is a 'reward'.

What I'm basically saying is that I'm not familiar with the original series. Luckily, there's a trailer that shows off this return.


Ultra Street Fighter 4 announced - brings new characters and modes to the existing game

Phil Savage at

At last weekend's EVO 2013 event, Capcom announced the next stage of their endlessly iterative fighting series, Ultra Street Fighter IV; planned as a DLC upgrade to the existing word jumble that is Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. It will add the returning characters Elena, Rolento, Hugo, and Poison - who to my untrained eyes are possibly the line up of an '80s New Wave band - along with a fifth mystery pugilist.


Remember Me review

Cassandra Khaw at

Set in a cyberpunk vision of Paris where memory is currency, Remember Me is a third-person action-adventure teenager. It badly wants to impress its peers – and you – with its sheer weight of selfconscious stuff. On top of all the conventional action-adventure jumping and running, it throws in stealth sequences, rooftop chases, platforming and a splash of something uniquely its own. Heck, there’s even a heroine who isn’t a walking pair of mammaries, just for good measure.

Much like a teenager, Remember Me is a little awkward, and prone to taking its cue from others. As its protagonist, Nilin, wobbles theatrically into the introductory sequence, the credits cutting in at intervals, it’s hard not to feel a painful twinge of cyberpunk deja vu. It’s the oldest story in the dystopian book: amnesiac ex-badass finds herself inexplicably embroiled in a revolution and also the quarry of a menacing mega-corporation.


DuckTales Remastered confirmed for PC

Phil Savage at

Capcom have confirmed that DuckTales Remastered, their self-explanatory HD remake of NES game DuckTales, will be making its way to our PCs. As we've previously learned, the game's Moon Theme is the only way our former web-editor Marsh Davies is able to function as a human being, so this is bound to be good news for him. And for people who enjoyed the original game too, I guess.


Remember Me trailer explains how we'll play the game of mind games

Tyler Wilde at

The latest trailer for Capcom's Remember Me spends six-and-a-half minutes explaining its backstory, memory modification techniques, and cute made-up words like "Remembrane." As a gifted "memory hunter" in Neo-Paris, you'll do sci-fi stuff to steal and remix other people's memories for your own ends. Want to take out a guard? Make him think he murdered his wife so he commits suicide! Wait, that's...damn, you're a psycho.


Resident Evil Revelations bigs up horror aspect in latest trailer

Tom Sykes at

Resident Evil Revelations is probably the most satisfying RE of recent years (on the 3DS at least - I've not played this Revmake), and that isn't so much a compliment as a reminder of how confused the series has become since the triumphant Resident Evil 4. This previously handheld-only side-story returns to the game's roots somewhat, boasting claustrophobic environments and even a few shocks, admittedly while retaining quite a lot of shooty moments. In the first of a series of developer diaries, Capcom are reaffirming their dedication to 'Heritage and Horror', which is coincidentally the title of my screenplay about a series of grisly murders in a National Trust house. Resident Evil Revelations is out on May 21st in the US, and May 24th in the UK and Australia.

Capcom announces minimum PC requirements for Remember Me

Shaun Prescott at

Capcom's third-person action / memory hacking game Remember Me will release in early June, and if you've paid attention to recent trailers you'll know it looks very pretty. If you're keen to hack memories as a spec ops martial arts expert in an eerie, futuristic Paris, you'll need to horsepower. So here are the minimum and suggested PC specifications.


Remember Me trailer assaults you with its bad guys

Phil Savage at

Here's a new trailer for Capcom's upcoming third-person memory remixing action game, Remember Me. Officially it's called the "Enemies" trailer, but the "Ow, I have a headache now" trailer might be a more fitting name. In it you'll find fast cuts, flashing lights, glitchy effects and some music that I'm tempted to call dubstep, if only to wind up those people that are very passionate about strict genre classifications.


Resident Evil: Revelations screenshots much prettier than the 3DS version, obviously

Shaun Prescott at

While it may be hard to muster enthusiasm for a PC port of a 3DS game, these new PC-specific Resident Evil: Revelations screenshots look pretty decent, considering the game's origins. The back-to-roots survival horror outing releases May 21 in the US and May 24 in Europe and Australia, and Capcom has provided PC specs for the game. They're a little surprising given the game's handheld origins but the game has been given a full HD makeover, so keep that in mind.


Capcom says "hang tight" for DuckTales Remastered PC confirmation

Omri Petitte at

Capcom struck all kinds of mallard-related nostalgia at last weekend's PAX East with its announcement of DuckTales Remastered, an HD update of the classic 1990 platformer based off the cartoon with a theme-song chorus you can't really forget. The return of Scrooge, Launchpad, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and the rest of the cast is cane-hopping over to just consoles for now, but a Capcom forum post by Senior Vice President Christian Svensson states he's "working on" getting a PC version underway.
