Lady Dimitrescu’s castle gets a jammy new makeover in Resident Evil Village’s Shadows Of Rose DLC

Castle Dimitrescu was one of the many highlights of Resident Evil Village, so it makes sense that Capcom are returning to it in the game’s upcoming DLC adventure, Shadows Of Rose. Set 16 years after the events of Village, this story expansion centres on Rose, the daughter of Village protagonist Ethan Winters, as she comes to terms with her emerging mold powers. She was just a teeny, tiny baby when her dad was fighting off the very tall vampire lady in the base game, but now she’s all grown up and wants to be rid of the supernatural spore abilities…

Street Fighter 6: Twenty fist-pounding minutes of new hands-on PS5 gameplay

Better fighters, better modes, better get some practice. Street Fighter 6 is looking polished as hell – let’s make that clear from the off. It represents a massive course-correction from the controversial mis-steps of SFV, but it hasn’t jettisoned everything from the previous game: everything salvageable has been iterated and improved upon, resulting in a blend of SF4, SF5, and a breadth of new ideas. Juri’s back, with a mix of moves from both her SF4 and SF5 incarnation. Alex’s hands-on session with the Tokyo Game Show build focused on four newly revealed characters: the powerful but unwieldy Guile, for…

Resident Evil 4 Remake Launching On PS4, But Not Xbox One

Well, here’s a bit of surprise: The new Resident Evil 4 remake—out next year—is in development for PS4. We knew it was coming to next-gen machines, but now it’s also headed to Sony’s older home console. However, it seems this remake will be skipping the Xbox One, possibly due to a lack of power or sales. In June of this year—during a Sony State of Play—the Resident Evil 4 remake was revealed, confirming after years of rumors and speculation that it is indeed a real thing that will soon exist. The game isn’t a remastering of the classic horror title,…

Netflix throws Resident Evil on the endless pile of shows it’s cancelled

The show has been out for less than two months. If it’s a Netflix show released post-2018 or so, you can probably bet on it being cancelled, and that’s just what has happened to Resident Evil. Another day, another headline that reads ‘Netflix cancels insert show you probably like here,’ this time that particular show being Resident Evil. As reported by Deadline, Netflix has decided against renewing the show for a second season, only a month and a half after it was released on July 14. As noted by Deadline, the show didn’t have a particularly strong showing in Netflix’s…

“I want it now!” What do hardcore fighting game players think after hands-on with Street Fighter 6?

We spoke to the fans face-to-face to find out if their expectations were met. VsFighting X, the 10th instalment of the UKs biggest fighting game event made its glamorous return this past weekend in the heart of central Birmingham. Walk past all the construction through the doors of the Millenium Point venue and excited crowds of competitors and spectators dominated the space. However, as brilliant as the tournament itself was, one of the most popular attractions was Street Fighter 6 on the 2nd floor. With a crowd of eager players larger than even some of the titles with their own…

Resident Evil Remakes are fine and all – but I’d trade them for more Dead Rising

Dead Rising is too damn good to not come back and here’s why! In a recent episode of the VG247 ‘Best Games Ever’ Podcast – which is excellent, by the way – Dead Rising became a topic of hot conversation. It feels appropriate that it did – as that episode of the podcast was released just a matter of days before this week’s anniversary of the series, which kicked off back on August 8th 2006. 16 isn’t exactly a tentpole anniversary to mark, but Dead Rising is worth celebrating no matter the year. With classic Capcom horror getting a resurgence…

EVO was dominated by rollback netcode announcements, and I couldn’t be happier

Evo 2022 just wrapped up this morning, and as a UK resident who stayed up to watch the whole thing until roughly 30 minutes before work started, it was exhausting. I’m not talking about the run time, I’m talking about the back-to-back banger announcements coming from multiple fighting game developers over the weekend. A large quantity of which, you’ll be happy to know, revolves around the implementation of rollback netcode. For those not in the know, rollback netcode has kind of been the hot topic over the past few years (although arguably it’s been heating up for over a decade…

One brand new fighter, while the other a returning fan favourite. Street Fighter 6 has received a brand new trailer as part of Evo 2022’s Street Fighter 5 tournament – this time revealing Juri and Kimberly as official additions to the cast. Set to launch in 2023, this trailer raises the total official character count to seven as we march closer to the eventual release of the highly anticipated 2D fighter!

Resident Evil big-bad Albert Wesker is coming to Dead By Daylight soon

The Umbrella Corporation’s favourite stooge Albert Wesker is back again, and he’s bursting into multiplayer survival horror Dead By Daylight as a new killer, The Mastermind. Wesker’s arrival is the second time Resident Evil has crossed over into DBD, but the upcoming Project W event will revamp the Raccoon Police Department map and bring along familiar Resi characters Rebecca Chambers and Ada Wong as playable survivors.

Exoprimal’s airborne T-Rex attacks and unstoppable raptor swarms have slammed straight into my heart

I’ve been excited to play Exoprimal, Capcom’s upcoming multiplayer dino shooter, ever since it used the phrase “unstoppable raptor horde” in one of its trailers. It is a completely unhinged combination of words that makes me giddy just thinking about them. I’ll often find myself muttering them out loud when I’m unloading the dishwasher or folding laundry. “Unstoppable raptor horde”. It’s like the season finale of language. It’s perfect. Admittedly, prior to the existence of that phrase, I was feeling a little sceptical about Exoprimal’s existence. Not only does Capcom have – let’s say – a less than favourable track…
