You know, the VGAs where you're going to see the debut of the new Resistance 3 trailer (I haven't even seen it yet), where God of War III will be contending for Game of the Year, and where who knows what other awesome things will happen? Those VGAs?
Well, like last year, we're holding a VGAs viewing party in LA, and you're invited [pointing at you]. We think fun experiences are best shared with friends - friends who are picking up the tab.
So we've teamed up with Capcom to transition their Food Fight into a viewing party for the VGAs broadcast. So please, drop...
179w ago - Capcom PR Manager Wes Phillips has shared a video today highlighting EVO fighting game masters battle it out with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: This is a big weekend for fighting game fans, as the world's best descend upon Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the EVO 2010 World Fighting Finals this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Thousands of contestants from over 30 countries will battle it out for fame, glory and cash in Super Street Fighter IV, Super Street Fighter II HD Remix, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and a couple non-Capcom games... Tekken 6 and Melty Blood: Actress Again.
Registration for the event is officially closed, but that doesn't mean you can't get a piece of the action. If you can make the trip to Las Vegas, admission to watch the event is free.
We'll also have the E3 build of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 available to play on PlayStation 3 for anyone who shows up! This will be the first time the game is playable for the general public.
Did I mention that Marvel vs. Capcom 3 just won Best...
181w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared an interview with Capcom Producer Mike Schmitt on Dead Rising 2 for PS3 from E3 2010.
To quote: While Sid and I conducted a video interview on Marvel vs Capcom 3 (post coming soon!), SCEE's James Gallagher traveled across the cavernous Capcom booth to the Dead Rising 2 area.
The game has progressed significantly on PS3 since we saw it a couple months back, so he held a chat with Producer Mike Schmitt. And because James is English, he didn't even realize that the man hit over 500 home runs! Facepalm!
Fortunately, the fact that he wasn't starstruck allowed him to focus on the game itself. Have at it, James:
Dead Rising 2 is a zombie game with its tongue hanging out of its cheek. You control Chuck Greene, a motorcross champion trapped in a zombie apocalypse in the fictional Fortune City, which is loosely based on Las Vegas.
After tearing through a few hundred zombies with a pair of chainsaws attached to a canoe paddle, I lurched over to Capcom's Mike Schmitt and asked a few questions.
What kind of story is there in Dead Rising 2?
"Chuck is competing in a gameshow called Terror is Reality...
187w ago - Today Capcom's Europe Brand Manager Richard Earl has announced alongside a video trailer that Lost Planet 2 is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: The sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions has seen massive changes take place across the planet of E.D.N.III.
We think we've got climate change issues? Earth has nothing on this place! The snow has melted across the planet to reveal all kinds of hostile environments in which you will have to adapt and do battle.
The local Akrid creatures are also still as angry as ever... As well as changes to the environment the game has also seen massive advances for the sequel.
The multi-player mode for the game sees you and three mates work together through 6 massive levels battling rival pirate clans, akrid creatures and massive (and I really mean MASSIVE) bosses. To help you take on all these enemies there is a huge array of weapons and Vital-Suits which amounts to some seriously hard firepower.
There's also a huge level of customisation in the game with which you can create your own unique pirate and unlock weapons, power ups and emotes. You can then take your own character into the online multiplayer modes to unleash some serious pwnage.
190w ago - IGN reports that Capcom is currently testing new DRM protection on Final Fight: Double Impact via PlayStation Network in an effort to combat PSN GameSharing.
It is important to note, however, that the game only requires one initial check at at start-up. Once the game has loaded, it appears you can then sign out of PSN.
To quote: "He later discovered Final Fight: Double Impact can only be played on the same account it was purchased on.
Capcom issued a response to his concern, according to his message post, saying this move was done in an effort to combat "rampant" game sharing on PlayStation Network but emphasized this may not be implemented on all future titles.
"Yes, there is DRM. This was employed to combat the rampant 'PSN Sharing' that has been going on over the last year," a representative wrote to nacthenud. "We're sorry that your family cannot play the game on their individual accounts (same console). This is a limitation of the Sony network."
"We are not committed to do this with all titles moving forward but the only way to evaluate impact was to try it with one title first."
