Game Review

Say what you will about Capcom's treatment of current franchises, the team loves their classics.  Over the years, it's released a number of compilations to celebrate past arcade releases, including two Capcom Classics Collections for PS2, Xbox and PSP, as well as the Capcom Generations games for Sega Saturn (in Japan, anyway).  Now it continues that tradition again, this...

Capcom Reveals the "Truth" Behind Dark Void Zero

Today's release of Dark Void Zero on Nintendo's DSi service has provided what will likely be a cute 8-bit promotion for the hotly-anticipated title releasing this week. Of course, if Capcom would have you believe, the game is hardly promotion at all. A new blog post at Capcom Unity goes into the game's mysterious past. Apparently, Dark Void Zero was originally being developed for the NES and PlayChoice-10 arcade cabinet (which had two screens, much like the DS of today), and prototype versions of the game were produced, along with manuals and concept art. However, due to the SNES's impending release, Dark Void never saw the light of day. Based upon this concept, Airtight Games began their own take on the title, and decided to port the original NES game to DSiWare as well. Believe it or not, all of this sounds pretty legitimate. In fact, I was on my way to believing it too...that is, until it was revealed who was in possession of one of the few produced copies of the game... Read More

Media: Introducing Dark Void Zero

We knew that Capcom has been working on the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 title Dark Void for a while now, but I don't think any of us realized just how long they'd been doing so: I can't tell if this is true, or simply brilliant marketing for the upcoming HD title. Check out the images added to our gallery, and you'll find NES styled box art in the same style as the recent Mega Man throwbacks, and a screen which apparently simulates the "blowing dust out of the cartridge" so many of us had to do back in the day, likely using the DS mic and touchscreen. Whether it's legit or not, it's great to get not only a new NES title after all this time, but one which isn't based on something we've seen before. The full background story and the screens await in the link below. Read More

Media: The Second Impact of Final Fight: Double Impact

Following the reveal of Final Fight: Double Impact by IGN late last week, Capcom has made it's official official announcement today. We know most of the information already, but there are a few tidbits that went unmentioned, such as a selectable remixed soundtrack by the composers behind Bionic Commando Rearmed and a Vault filled with content created by developers and fans alike. New screens and assets are in our gallery, and you can read the full press release after the cut. Read More

New Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Arcade Fightsticks Revealed

Following in the footsteps of Street Fighter IV, Capcom and Mad Catz have teamed up to announce new Arcade Fightsticks for Marvel vs. Capcom 2. However, as you can see above, these don't feature different pairs of characters as previously thought, but rather, a large group of heroes squaring off. They will be released this Fall exclusively through U.S. GameStop stores (what? No Canadian EB Games?), Capcom's online store, and Mad Catz's online store. And though no price tag has been attached, they likely won't be cheap if the Street Fighter IV versions are any indication; those ran for $149.99 apiece. Check out the details in the press release after the cut. Read More

Wii-kly Update: Strong Bad 4, Target Toss Pro: Bags, SPACE INVADERS, and FORGOTTEN WORLDS

Two new updates for WiiWare today, including a new Strong Bad episode, and two new Virtual Console titles which seem to be just screaming for attention. Don't you just love when companies put some titles in all caps? But hey, Space Invaders (or should I say "SPACE INVADERS"?) is 30; I think we can allow it to get a little rowdy to celebrate. And "FORGOTTEN WORLDS" is 20, so I guess we can let that slide, too.WiiWare™ Strong Bad Episode 4: Dangeresque 3 (Telltale Games, 1 player, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older – Alcohol and Tobacco Reference, Crude Humor, Mild Cartoon Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Move over, generically buff action heroes. Strong Bad is here to show you how it's done in his hand-crafted cinematic masterpiece, Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective. You play Dangeresque, a dirty cop in pursuit of a little action and several big sacks of cash. Can our hero stay alive long enough to defeat his arch-nemesis, save the world and get the girl? Looks like he's gonna have to jump. Target Toss Pro: Bags (Incredible Technologies, 1-16 players, Rated E for Everyone, 700 Wii Points): Target Toss Pro: Bags is a new video game based on beanbag toss, the nation's hottest backyard and tailgate sensation. Bags – or Cornhole, as it's called in some parts of the country – originated in the Midwest in the 1960s and has since become a staple at outdoor social events from coast to coast. Similar to horseshoes, Bags is a deceptively simple yet extremely competitive game where players try to toss beanbags into a hole in a slightly raised platform or "box" for points. Whether at a tailgate party or a summer barbecue, the game has become a social focal point, and the unmistakable thud of bags hitting the box is now a universal party soundtrack. Virtual Console™ SPACE INVADERS: The Original Game (Super NES™, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): Experience one of gaming's iconic franchises in this perfect rendition of the arcade classic. Take aim at the field of invaders relentlessly marching toward you. Move quickly but carefully, using the barriers for protection as you avoid missiles fired by the aliens and try to destroy all of them before they reach the bottom of the screen. Further enhance the nostalgia by choosing from several modes that simulate different versions of the arcade game (such as upright cabinet or black-and-white). Or if you want to prove your superior skills to a friend, try the new VS mode and see who can stop the alien menace the quickest. All in all, it's pure gaming at its best, now with no quarters required. FORGOTTEN WORLDS (SEGA GENESIS, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone – Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): FORGOTTEN WORLDS is a one- or two-player side-scrolling shooter made by CAPCOM. It was one of the first games to incorporate 360-degree aiming and shooting. This SEGA GENESIS version provides the same impact and intensity of the classic arcade game. In the 29th century, without warning, warships broke through the sky, loaded with fiendish aliens. They rained down fire, bombs, missiles and napalm, leaving the land barren and inhospitable. Humanity was enslaved and Earth became known as the Forgotten World. In a hidden place, a group of brave humans raised two male children in secret. They brought up the young men as warriors, training them for battle. The two warriors emerged as armed machines of might, strength and super power – the Nameless Ones. Fight the hateful invaders as the powerful Nameless Ones. Collect Zenny to upgrade your weapons and satellite, and free the planet.800 points seems like a little much for Space Invaders, but I think the Super NES might have had an enhanced version which appeared during its run. However, I'm not finding much information on this particular title, so I'm not sure if this is it, or if there was another version. Read More
