The crew over at Arcade1UP have been releasing replica arcade cabinets for retail for the past year-or-so with licenses from the makers of Pac-Man, Defender, and Street Fighter, to name a few. The arcade cabinets are less-expensive — starting at $199 — and smaller in scale compared to their original releases — allowing for play while sitting down, or standing with the optional 1 foot … Continue reading Dang Arcade 1UP! Back At It Again with the new Arcade Cabinets!
Monster Hunter. Okami. Mega Man. Devil May Cry. Ace Attorney. Breath of Fire. Street Fighter. And SO MUCH MORE. It appears that a whole lotta Capcom video game soundtracks just so happen to have materialize over at Spotify a couple of days ago. All of the soundtracks are lister under Capcom Sound Team and are mostly listed in Japanese, but many of them are available for streaming in North America.Continue reading “Guys, There’s A TON of Capcom Game Soundtracks on Spotify Right Now…”
Later this week — by “later”, I mean TONIIIIIIGHT, TONIIIIGHT — will be the live broadcast (and stream) of the 2018 edition of The Game Awards 2018, which will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. We can likely look forward to some an evening of surprise game announcements and updates, excitement for the award wins and (of course) some disappointment with some … Continue reading Get Ready for a Live Performance of “Devil May Cry 5” TONIGHT at The Game Awards
BRUH! WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS A KID! I had to use my hands like it was a baby’s toy! Anyway, this was done for a pretty good cause, though. A group of hackers at Hackerloop wanted to level the Nerf-fighting playing field for Nicholas Huchet, an individual who didn’t have a full arm, by building him a custom Nerf blaster prosthetic with the ability to automatically fire a projectile by simply contracting his forearm muscles. According to the Medium post, Hackerloop’s Valentin Squirelo chronicled the build in great detail, which included the use of custom 3D-printed parts, Arduino-based electronics, some electromyography sensors that could detect muscle movements, and — of course — a couple of hard-to-find Nerf Swarmfire blasters (hint: the blasters’ round design was VERY optimal for the build).

For the last two years or so (so, since around 2016), director, Paul W. S. Anderson — who’s directed two of my favorite films: Mortal Kombat and Event Horizon) has been working on a Monster Hunter movie. While I can now actually audibly hear you roll your eyes to the back of your head over the scoffing, we now also know that the film has a star, Anderson’s wife and actress Milla Jovovich. For your own safety I heavily recommend that you stop rolling your eyes further back; just looking out for you. Anyway, Variety reports that Anderson recently delivered the latest draft of the film’s script, and the Monster Hunter film adaptation will begin shooting this September in South Africa. It has also been reported that special effects studio Mr. X will be involved, having worked with Anderson on the special effects for the Resident Evil movies.

This year will mark the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man (or Rockman) video game series in Japan. To mark this marvelous occasion, Japanese bicycle maker KhodaaBloom recently released a special bike on February 17th. “What so special about this bike?” you may ask. Well, the bike in question is adorned by the color motif, the Japanese box art design and the 8-bit pixellated design of the … Continue reading Presenting the Official Mega Man Bicycle. Just What The World Needed…
The fastest speedruns being in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard are being finished on easy mode and use special weapons. However, one runner, a YouTuber who goes by the name Quizzle, went to the next level by upping the difficulty all the way to the game’s hardest difficulty (called Madhouse) and hacked their way through with a pocket knife and DOESN’T DIE ONE, SINGLE TIME! You might … Continue reading Some Brave Soul Just Completed ‘Resident Evil 7’ With Only A Knife On Hardest Difficulty…
The eight-minute video above is something else. It features the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, comprised of people in their 50s (or older), many of whom have likely never played a game in the Mega Man series, flawlessly perform theme songs from the games. It is quite the amazing sight! Most of the set has music from Mega Man 3, but also includes music from 1 and 2, as … Continue reading Here’s a Full Swedish Orchestra performing a Mega Man Medley…

While Capcom is spinning its wheels on the series (although Resident Evil HD Remastered was prettybfreaking good and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 looks very promising), YouTube user Rod Lima has finished a complete remake of Resident Evil 2 in Unreal Engine 3, with the video above containing Claire’s A scenario from start to finish. Maybe THIS is the remake that us RE fans wanted for arguably the best game of the classic (tank-controlled) RE series. Sure, the GameCube remake was awesome, but what about the second one?
