Get a behind the scenes look at the making of Dragon’s Dogma! In part one, meet some of Capcom’s most elite team members and hear about their vision for Dragon’s Dogma. Enjoy an inside look into the development of one Capcom’s most ambitious titles ever!
Well this is damn impressive, in a campy 70s Dr Who kind of way. But GameTrailers has started a new series that uses recent games for its inspiration. And the first one is Operation Raccoon City. So watch as Lupo (Umbrella) and Shona (Spec-Ops) face off against not just each other but zombies and B.O.W.s galore!
Every Xbox owner should have by now downloaded and played the Dragon’s Dogma demo and today PS3 owners get to sample the delights of destroying harpies, goblins and the griffin. And to get you into the (sword) swing of things before the PSN updates here’s a handy article from our favourite Dragon’s Dogma fanatic Matt Lees from OXM. In it he explains how to get the most out of the demo – read the full piece on OXM.
If I was going to add a seventh point on to this it would be – Don’t Mash! The Fighter and the Strider have timed combos that are different if you change up the timing. For instance the Fighter can do a simple three hit combo, but if you put a pause inbetween the first and second hit this can be changed to a rather fancy four hit combo! Oh and you can cancel these normal attacks into specials – do the three hit combo then cancel the last hit into Blink Strike and it’ll make you feel like Dante doing his Stinger attack!
Hilarious zombie slayfest Dead Rising 2 Off the Record is now available digitally at a discount price! You can pick it up on PSN or Xbox Live Games on Demand.
The game is pure, undistilled fun set in a vast playground of gruesome delights. It also marks the Dead Rising series’ return to original protagonist Frank West, albeit an older, fatter, sadder version of him. Still, his photography gameplay was perfect for a game where you’re constantly doing crazy things.
On top of that, you can play through the game online with a friend, who will take control fo Dead Rising 2 protagonist and generally likeable guy Chuck Greene. Double the fun! We highly recommend picking this up and threshing some zombies with a loved one.
Today We’re releasing Marvel Vs Capcom 2 on the App Store. Introducing a brand new control style using the innovative “Flick Button”, Marvel Vs Capcom 2 for iOS allows players to play this classic fighting game wherever they are. The “Flick Button” mechanic introduces an easy way for players to access the more advanced attacks in Marvel Vs Capcom 2 with a fast swipe.
On top of this, Marvel Vs Capcom 2 will have the same features as previously released versions of the title, including the impressive 56 Character Roster, the game changing “Variable System” and all the powerful attacks that the favourite characters from the Marvel and Capcom universes have to offer.
Marvel Vs Capcom 2 is available on the App Store from today for the special offer of $2.99/€2.39/£1.99 until the 6th of May 2012. After this date, Marvel Vs Capcom 2 will be available for $4.99/€3.99/£2.99.
Steel Battalion Heavy Armor today shows what it has in store for those who pre-order the game before its launch on June 19 in North America and June 22 across European territories. With a choice of three different pre-order packs, players will receive additional armory to customise their VTs (Vertical Tanks), boosting their defensive power, offensive force, speed in combat and much more.
Using a unique combination of Microsoft’s Kinect and regular X360 controls, players will experience war like never before without losing the precision demanded of a first person shooter.
Set in 2082, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of computers, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. In this low-tech era there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war – the Vertical Tank. Players take on the role of VT pilot Sgt. Powers as the battle to regain the United States from Chinese occupation begins. More videos after the jump! More >
The Dragon’s Dogma Demo is available to download now for Xbox 360! The demo will let you create your own character and main Pawn using the game’s incredibly in-depth character creation tools and when you buy Dragon’s Dogma you will then be able to export both these characters into the full game! And tomorrow it’ll be up on the PSN.
So aside from the huge number of previews being posted by all the gaming websites, and more, our buddy Max has put together a video of his thoughts on Dragon’s Dogma. It covers how it wasn’t really on his radar for a while but as the new videos and previews started coming out his hype meter has been building, seems to be a similar story more many other people. But listen to his arguements and watch the footage, and then wish for tomorrow to come sooner because that’s when you’ll get a good taste of what Dragon’s Dogma plays like when the demo hits!
Matt Lees from OXM has once again poated a video preview of his experiences with Dragon’s Dogma. He’s still playing with the same character, but check out the massive hammer his pawn Jumbles has! Again it’s wonderfully narrated by Matt and you can get to watch him try to take out a Griffin. Also posting video previews is MSXboxWorld.com which has posted up a long preview as well. Can’t embed it though so head over to MSXboxWorld.com to check it out. Don’t forget the demo is released tomorrow! More >
Thought you might like to watch the Resident Evil 6 trailer from Captivate again. You know because it’s awesome. What’s also cool is IGN’s feature on the trailer which goes into great depth about nearly everything that happens in the trailer. Obviously there’s spoilers abound in the piece, about earlier games in the series, but there is also a great video that highlights the things talked about in the article. Head over to IGN to read all about it!
