Capcom: Dustforce Launches Today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita

11w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez announced that Dustforce launches today on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: In any other context outside of games, "S" rank being the pinnacle of grades wouldn't make sense. But since we're talking games here, we all know that the "S" rank is where it's at.

I have a theory that it originated in Japanese games (where many of the great gaming traditions started) and their disregard for A being the first letter of the alphabet. Whether or not that's true, the tradition of Capcom platforming lives on in Dustforce, which launches today on PS3 and PS Vita.

Originally made by Hitbox Team and released for PC, Dustforce caught our eye because it shares a few elements of the best platformers we've made: challenge, design, and soundtrack.

Dustforce seems very simple at first glance, and it really is. The idea is to move your acrobatic janitor through the level as fast as you can, while cleaning all the dirt, dust, and grime. You're given a few abilities to do this: double jumps, wall runs, dashes, etc.

There are also some tricks that you need to learn, like down dashing onto a slope for max speed, or learning to dash as soon as you land to maintain dash speed. Using these tools, it's up to you to find the...

81w ago - SCEE Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview today with Capcom discussing their new Resident Evil 6 video game for the PS3 entertainment system.

Below are the details, to quote: It's a big week for gaming! The release of a new mainline Resident Evil game is one of those events where gamers the world over prepare to bunk off school/work and devote their every waking hour to the noble pursuit of zombie slaughter.

The sequel to 2009's Africa-set Resident Evil 5 is an absolute beast of a game, offering one of the largest single player campaigns in recent memory.

Ahead of its global release today, we caught up with executive producer Kobayashi-san, director Sasaki-san and producer Hirabayashi-san at Tokyo Game Show, to find out how Capcom went about creating such a mammoth title.

Fred Dutton, PlayStation.Blog Europe Manager: What makes Resident Evil 6 stand out from its predecessors?

Sasaki: I think it's the human drama that we really wanted to convey. The script is just so packed with stuff. Trying to blend everything from the script with the game design and make that come together was really a challenge. What we tried while writing the script was to incorporate the level design and the design of the game itself so they blended seamlessly...

To quote: Ni Hao PlayStation Playas, this is John Diamonon, the Brand Manager for Resident Evil in North America, and it's been a while my friends.

Last time I was here, I announced MvC3 and you were all like, "Yeah!" This time, I have news that's gonna make you say, "EFF yeah!"

It's my pleasure to announce that the next installment of the canonical Resident Evil series, Resident Evil 6, returns on November 20, 2012.

Oops. Did I say zombies? Resident Evil 6 has zombies? Watch the trailer and find out.

Anyway, comment below and tell me what you think. Oh. It might be a day before I get...
