Look at these! Japan’s Wave Corporation has been releasing several different miniature arcade cabinets (here and here, for example). These Astro City cabinets, however, are my favorite.
My girlfriend recently bought a PlayStation 4 and a copy of Monster Hunter: World. We’ve been spending a lot of time in the game together, and helping her learn the ins and outs of hunting has turned me into something of a coach. It’s been an exciting new way to experience one of my favorite games.
When Resident Evil 2 released in 1998, it had to follow up on a game that defined a new genre of horror. Not only did it manage to improve the formula, it went on to be what many people consider the best game in the series. After a long stretch with no new information besides “it’s coming,” we’ve finally seen Resident…
Capcom is remaking Resident Evil 2. Originally released on the PlayStation in 1998, the remake will feature new character models. Meaning? Of course, the characters are going to look slightly different. Some fans are feeling the new designs, while others are not.
Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2 will be out on January 25, 2019. A new trailer for the game ran during Sony’s E3 PlayStation press conference. The game is coming to PS4 for sure, and possibly to other platforms as well.
Singer and pin-up Ladybeard is the manliest Chun-Li of all. His cosplay was excellent! Know how to make it better? Add another pair of massive thighs.
Monster Hunter: World keeps expanding its roster of giant beasts with a variety of pickle-lizards and golden dragons. Yesterday, the game added another new monster: the blue flame-covered Lunastra. Hunting Lunastra means signing up for a difficult fight full of explosions and snarls. It’s tough, but it’s a great…
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is out today. In addition to including the arcade versions of 12 different games in the series, ranging from 1987's Street Fighter to 1999's 3rd Strike, it also has an impressive virtual museum built into it, with some surprising revelations.
Mega Man 11 arrives October 2 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. It ditches the 8-bit art style for modern 3D sprites and includes a new ability to slow down time. But don’t worry, you’ll still be fighting Dr. Wily and robots with names like Block Man. A new Mega Man Amiibo is also coming.
I’m a big fan of action games, and the cream of the crop is Devil May Cry. The series has always had the right mix of tricky combo creation and carefree fun. When developer Ninja Theory reimagined the series in 2013’s DmC: Devil May Cry, an anarchic mood and redesigned Dante upset some fans, including myself. Having…
Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 is getting a Switch release in Japan later this week. It’s a weird thing, though; users will only have to install a 45MB game file, while gameplay will be streamed via the cloud.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will come to the Switch on August 28. It’s the first Monster Hunter game to appear on the console in North America (Japan got Monster Hunter XX on the Switch last fall) and will let players transfer save data from their 3DS copies of the game.
Monster Hunter: World is drowning in crossover events, from the recent Devil May Cry event to a Street Fighter V promotion that allowed players to dress up as Ryu. The Street Fighter love continues with a new event quest that unlocks a Sakura costume. It’s a fun but difficult mission, though the reward is a bit…
If you’re playing Monster Hunter: World outside of Japan, you’re missing out a quest for one of the game’s most striking armor sets. The Azure Starlord set requires a code that you can only obtain by going to the Universal Studios theme park in Japan, but if you’re tenacious, there’s still a way to get it. It’s just…
Capcom will release cartridge versions of Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X as limited runs costing $100 a piece alongside production house iam8bit, the two companies said today.
Asura’s Wrath is cathartic. One moment, you feel like the most powerful being in the universe. The next, smaller than an ant in a hurricane about to get crushed. Then you come back stronger than ever, overcoming the odds to gain your vengeance.
