Humble Capcom Bundle Launched

Posted on October 13, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

You better have your shoryuken memorized because this latest Humble Bundle is sure to land a dragon punch on you if you are not prepared for it. The Humble Capcom Bundle includes a number of different titles from several classic Capcom franchises.

Personally I think even the pay what you can tier of $1 is worth it for Episode 1 of Resident Evil: Relations 2 alone. On top of that all those who buy into the bundle will receive Strider, Lost Planet 3 and Bionic Commando Armed. That’s a ton of hours of entertainment for only a buck, to be completely honest – I lost dozens of hours in Resident Evil: Revelations 2’s Raid Mode alone.

Paying more than the average (currently $7.60 USD) will grant you all of the above plus Resident Evil: Revelations, DMC: Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 5.

If you chose to go with the ultimate tier – priced at $15 USD – you’ll get everything above as well as Resident Evil 5: Untold Stories DLC and Ultra Street Fighter IV.

There’s a lot of value in these bundles and it looks like the amount of entertainment available in the Humble Capcom Bundle is only going to increase with more games expected to be added next week.



Sony Holiday Showcase: Our Brief Time With DMC Devil May Cry

Posted on October 10, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Ninja Thoery’s take on DMC has been quite polarizing given Capcom’s decision to reboot the franchise. After playing through a full tutorial and boss fight I can say with certainty that Dante’s form may have changed but he is bringing all of the style and sass you expect.

The one thing I really took away from our time with the game was the impression that Ninja theory has nailed the core gameplay while making minor adjustments. If you’re worried that Dante’s classic maneuvers like juggling enemies and pulling off fancy moves are missing or some how altered, I can tell you they are all accounted for.

This becomes really apparent with the gun play. Whether we were slicing enemies using Dante’s sword or suspending enemies with a cushion of bullets, everything felt smooth. As we navigated the gothic city streets, Dante’s acrobatics  stayed true to form with his fall speed slowing down as he plastered enemies full of holes. Running along the walls and platforming was also very responsive, although it remains to be seen how well the gameplay fares outside of a brief demo.

I can’t wait to fill Dante’s shoes again when the full game ships in Feb ’13, The demo also did feature one of the series’ large scale boss battles but due to the early state of the game there wasn’t much to say in regards to it. The boss battle followed the action trope of dodging attacks, learning patterns and exploiting a weak point.

The rebirth of Dante did have me worried at first. Well, all that worry has vanished because DmC: Devil May Cry is looking amazing. This video, from the PAX 2012 gaming conference, shows of Bob Barbas boss fight and the Overturn mission.

DmC: Devil May Cry will be released on January 15th. Seems like early next year is going to be stacked up as bad as the end of this year. DMC, Tomb Raider, Bioshock: Infinite, etc…etc…etc…
