Is this, extremely poor quality, video (above) the first look at Dead Rising 2. It was sort of confirmed a week or so ago in Famitsu and now we see this video emerge on YouTube. Here’s hoping this is real, it definitely looks it.

It’s one week until, arguably the biggest fighting franchise ever, Street Fighter returns to the shelves and already Capcom are talking downloadable content. Like many other fighting franchises that have hit the current generation of consoles downloadable content will be offered. Famitsu revealed earlier this week that Street Fighter IV would be getting downloadable content. Nice. What’s nicer is, some of it will be free. Continue reading

Another release here¬†announcement, this time it’s Capcom’s turn. The, somewhat highly anticipated, remake of Bionic Commando is to be released this upcoming May. The game is to be released on PS3 and Xbox 360, in all territories, in the fifth month of 2009. It has been confirmed that the PC version will follow soon after. It looks cool, I hope it’s good, we could do with a cool, new Spider-Man game. I said it, but you were all thinking it.

Capcom Confirms No Run & Gun In Resi 5 by Anthony Barlow

Now maybe it’s just me, or, well me and Ad’s but is anyone else finding the Resident Evil 5 controls horrendous? After playing the demo of the game both of us feel that buying the game will be a waste of time because of the crappy control scheme. Our last hope would’ve been Capcom saying: “Yeah, we’ll add in run and gun controls” or something to that effect, when in fact they’ve done the opposite.

In a new community blog post Capcom have confirmed that no such controls will be added or patched into their upcoming survival horror action game.

“While RE5 is very action-heavy, the base RE game design mechanic of holding fast while shooting remains,” says the Capcom blog. Newcomers to the series may need to make some “mental readjustments,” but the controls have remained this way to establish a sense of risk and danger while in combat. The new controls will instead grant “more natural motion to the second analog stick on your 360 or PS3 controller,”

Whilst there might be strong arguments for both sides of the RE5 controls saga, I personally feel that a game like that, with that many enemies on screen, needs better controls.

It looks like Capcom have been hard at work giving the fans something cool in PlayStation Home. The Japanese developer are adding a slew of Street Fighter costumes into Sony’s social service as well as Resident Evil 5 costumes and an RE 5 themed game space. Little is known about these add-on’s as of yet, but i’m sure they’ll sell if they’re not overpriced (of course, the game space is free). I wonder if they’ll chuck in a zombie themed mini game? I hope so. More on this when we get the info.

More RE 5 news now and it has been revealed that the game, like many others, requires a massive install on the PlayStation 3. It comes as bad news for owners of the smaller HDD systems as the install weighs in at around 5 gigabytes. Not good. As far as I know the install is mandatory, hopefully it’ll pay off on the performance front.

More demo news here and now it’s Capcom’s turn to shine. The demo for Resident Evil 5 has now hit the PlayStation Store and is available to download. The demo contains two stages, both of which can be played in online and offline co-op. Nice. It weighs in at 942mb so you’ll need a fair bit of space to download it. Go download it anyway, it should be worth it. Impressions may follow.
