I’ve seen plenty of portable retro video game systems in my travels, but never one that attempts to cover as many bases as this one.
This Chinese import plays 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit titles from 7 different game platforms in one compact system.
Capcom’s controversial, more-action-than-horror survival horror game Resident Evil 5 has a special treat for people who buy the Limited Edition set: aside from 3 “making of” DVDs, customers will also receive a 2GB USB drive shaped like a chainsaw.
Sprites are popular projects among crafters, especially those who work with Perler beads, so there are always lots of examples of sprite art around. That said, it’s rare to find sets with which you can recreate entire mini scenes of games, but you can with these Super Mario World sprites!
Capcom really thinks Resident Evil fans are willing to spend a lot of money. First, they announced the $90 Collector’s Edition of Resident Evil 5, a megabox packed with all sorts of essentials, like a necklace, a patch, and a figurine.
Looking for something to give you the power to kick, punch and super combo your way through the day? Why not start the day right with a 24-pack of this sugary-sweet Street Fighter energy drink?
The cherry-flavored drink should give you enough raw energy to beat-’em-up just like Ken or Ryu.
You may not be into high fashion runway shows, the Spring/Summer 2009 Giles Deacon collection might change your mind. Most of the models wore giant Pac-Man characters on their heads!
Deacon also had the floor painted with imagery that could only be described as Capcom-tastic.
Usually when I think of Mario’s primary currency, I think of those little gold coins (and maybe some power-packed ‘shrooms). So I was pleasantly surprised to see this arcade machine from Japan in which Mario pays out with real coins.
Capcom today revealed a new chapter in the popular Street Fighter franchise, titled Street Fighter IV: A New Beginning.
Not much is known about the new game, except that the just released teaser trailer features some really beautiful 3D pen-and-ink style graphics, reminiscent of Okami.
Fans of arcade games should definitely give this new arcade cabinet a look. Dream Arcades latest system is loaded to the gills with features, yet is very reasonably priced as home arcade systems go.
The $1799 Dreamcade 2.0 is a Windows-based arcade system with over 145 licensed games pre-loaded.
The live-action video game troublemakers over at Mega64 has posted this great video inspired by Dead Rising:
Titled “Welcome to Willamette Mall,” it’s a must see for anyone who’s played the Xbox 360 hit zombie action title.
Now this idea has been bandied about before, but the rumor mill is abuzz today with talk that Microsoft may be nearing completion of a purchase of gaming giant Capcom. Certainly, Capcom has been producing some quality hit titles for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console of late, with games like Dead Rising and today’s release of Lost Planet receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from gamers.
Capcom’s zombies-in-a-mall actioner, Dead Rising, is now available in demo form on Xbox Live Marketplace for your enjoyment. Since I haven’t gotten to check it out yet, here are some comments posted on Major Nelson’s blog that I thought would give a good idea of what to expect…
“You can (get) 15 minutes of run about in the mall.
