Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 Comin' At You In 2011
by 345 [ Tuesday, 20th of April 2010 - 03:10 PM ]
This is quite possibly the most miraculous announcement coming out of Captivate '10. Sure, there was that other little game that apparently was a big deal, but for me it's all about the return of Rad Spencer and some of the guys from GRIN, albeit under a different studio name. Fat Shark Games will be keeping Rearmed 2 true to the original, though some new things will be thrown into the mix, including jumping and more physics-based puzzles. Simon Viklund, who did the music for Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Final Fight: Double Impact will be returning to do the score as well, which is very exciting to hear. The one thing that is unclear at this point is whether or not the coop will be online or not, as the original was purely local coop play. Read More...

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds
by Kevin [ Tuesday, 20th of April 2010 - 01:06 PM ]
At first I thought this was a joke. A very clever and well constructed joke. This is one of those instances where I am incredibly pleased to report that this is no joke. The third game in the combo-laden fighting game series, Marvel vs Capcom, is coming to PlayStation 3 and the XBox 360 in 2011. The game, which is already said to feature Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm (and from the looks of the trailer, Ryu, Morrigan, and Chris Redfield), seems to draw an aritstic style closer to the most recent iteration of the Street Fighter series. Some art from a teaser poster also seems to reveal a few other characters. Now, the battle between Wolverine and Ryu is more than enough to get my attention, especially considering the art aesthetic of the game. Read More...

Review: Mega Man 10
by 345 [ Thursday, 15th of April 2010 - 11:08 AM ]
Mega Man 10 (available on XBLA, WiiWare, and PSN for 800 MS Pts/1000 Wii Pts/$10, respectively) is an incredibly fun and enjoyable entry in the classic Mega Man series. A follow-up to 2008's Mega Man 9 in more ways than just a new number, this game takes a lot of the feedback and criticism the latter had to craft one of the best sidescrolling experiences in years. While there isn't a whole lot Capcom and Inti Creates actually changed in the bigger scheme of things, Mega Man 10 features a lot of new tweaks and balance adjustments that make it far less threatening than its predecessor and more entertaining in the long run. While there are some tough areas in the game, overall I wouldn't call it difficult at all, and perhaps it is one of the most fair games in the series. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 13th of April 2010 - 09:27 AM ]
Have you had you healthy dose of F.3.A.R. today? Or at least your healthy dose of creepiness? If the answer is no, then you have to check out the announcement trailer for F.3.A.R. down below. If you don't feel like you need a rape shower afterward, then we need to be better friends. But in any instance, consider this your announcement that F.3.A. Read More...

Saw 2 Is Going To Be An Eye Opener
by Andy [ Monday, 12th of April 2010 - 04:36 PM ]
The Saw movie franchise has been known to truck out a new film every Halloween, and has so for the seventh year in a row. That is when Saw VII comes out this year that is. But now it looks like it is going to go down that path with the video game version of the psychological killer storyline. Yes, it has been announced that Saw 2 is in the works. In fact, you can look below to see some of the new screens for the Saw II being done by Konami and Zombie Studios again. Oh, and due out this Autumn as well as the new film. Read More...

Dark Void Zero Goes Mobile.. and Flies to the PC Too
by Kevin [ Friday, 9th of April 2010 - 11:33 AM ]
This week, AggroGamer will be presenting a review for Dark Void, for a new series entitled, "Games You Missed, Which Might Not Be a Bad Thing." The first title to get this treatment will be the action title Dark Void that was developed by Airtight Games and published by Capcom for the PS3, 360 and PC on January 19, 2010. In the meantime, the more well received iteration of the game, Dark Void Zero will be headed to the iPhone and PC. This 8-bit title was celebrated for its controls and retro gameplay and graphics, and was often compared in a more favorable light to its big brother. Read More...

Amazon Offering Free Transformers
by Andy [ Wednesday, 7th of April 2010 - 01:04 PM ]
That is if you pre-order Transformers: War for Cybertron from them and have held out from going to Game Stop to get your exclusive there. Oh and if you want to get Demolishor and not Shockwave that is. Yea, that's right. You can get Demolishor now if you pre-order on for Activisions new pursuit of money from hardcore fans. If you look a little lower here, you can see what each of these pre-order gems will look like when you crack open your PS3 or XBox copy of Transformers: War for Cybertron. No, they are not specific to console as that may have sounded. Read More...

Mini Review: Resident Evil 5: Desperate Escape
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 2nd of April 2010 - 02:34 PM ]
This review has a few spoilers for Resident Evil 5 in it. This DLC takes place near the end of the game and talks about some major story parts. If you have yet to play Resident Evil 5 all the way through, you have been warned. Just when you think you have seen all you have of Resident Evil 5, Capcom adds in yet more to the story. Well at least they expand on the story by showing you what some of the other characters were up to while Chris and Sheva were off saving the world from the Zompocalypse. This time around, it is what happened to Josh, Sheva's militant mentor, and Jill Valentine, after you emancipate her from Wesker's mind control. Read More...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier In Real Life
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 30th of March 2010 - 09:40 AM ]
Looks like Ubisoft might be gearing up to go into feature films, or at least shorts sometime soon. First they do a live action short based on all the beginning story to Assassin's Creed II. Something that was produced very well and added quite a bit of extra content to the overall experience of the game. At least it did for me. But the Assassin's Creed short looks like it was just the tip of the iceberg for Ubisoft's short films. Read More...

PAX East: Civilization V
by Binh Nguyen [ Monday, 29th of March 2010 - 11:17 AM ]
So Civilization fans will be happy to know that 2K Games was kind enough to show at PAX East that they will be coming out with a brand new Civilization game called... Civilization V. Nice title huh? You are probably wondering why they would want to make another Civilization game after the success of Civilization IV? Just like any games with a huge success rate, there were features that were taken out due to time, money, or wasn't able to be fit into the previous titles. Yes there are DLC and companies could always add them in later, but what if the engine was not equip to handle the features for the DLC, than what? Read More...

The Secret World Not Your Average MMO
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Saturday, 27th of March 2010 - 03:08 PM ]
Just as promised, albeit a day late, here is the new secret that Funcom wanted to reveal to the world on the 25th 26th of March. That secret, how The Secret World's gameplay actually makes it look more like an action/adventure game and not an MMO. Which in this case, is extremely jaw dropping. Watch the video below and see what you think for yourself. Now that you have seen the clip, did you not think it was a new action game? Did you forget it is going to be an MMO? Read More...

Resident Evil VS. Street Fighter
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 26th of March 2010 - 07:06 PM ]
While that could lead to some interesting spin-offs, no it is not a new IP from Capcom. At least as of right now. They do seem to be fans of crossing over two genres or companies for their games. But as of right now, that is not the case. If it does become the case, remember that AggroGamer brought it to you first. So then you must be asking yourself, what is up with the images below and the title above? Well that answer comes from a very talented artist on CHhub names Manuhell. Read More...

Revealing The Secrets Of The Secret World
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 24th of March 2010 - 11:15 AM ]
In the deep dark back rooms of GDC 2010, Funcom brought forth a new look at their up and coming modern world MMO The Secret World. You needed to know the secret path, the secret hand shake, and secret credentials to get in to see it. Or just be there and made an appointment to go and check out what Funcom had to show. My version would have been much cooler, you have to admit. But for those of you who didn't get to go through my made up scenario? Read More...
