Capcom is interested in making more Marvel Vs Capcom games

Capcom wants to make more Marvel Vs Capcom brawlers. The question is, can they get the elusive Marvel license to make them?

If you ever doubt if it really has been over five years since we last received a Marvel Vs Capcom game, just ask the franchise's ravenous fanbase who will instantly be able to cite the exact number of years, days, hours, minutes, and seconds since Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds was unleashed on the gaming world. 

A lot has changed since then for the famous franchise. Specifically, developer Capcom lost the right to make games based on the Marvel universe, which has prevented them from not only making new Marvel Vs Capcom games but even releasing updated content and patches for Marvel Vs Capcom 3. Needless to say, this news did not go over well with the fighting game's most dedicated players, who »

Videogame Nation: saluting a great UK gaming TV show

After a shaky start, Challenge TV's now-cancelled Videogame Nation grew into a pretty perfect gaming magazine TV show...

At 10.27 a.m. on the morning of Saturday 4th June 2016 gaming enthusiasts across the land screamed in a collective wail of distress as it was announced that the following week’s episode of Videogame Nation was to be its last ever.

For fans of the

’s only weekly show devoted to games it was a hefty blow. Yet another television programme centred on the world of videogames was meeting its demise after 4 series and an impressive 106 episodes. The outpouring of disbelief across social media was immediate. Fans who felt that the show had finally landed on a fun, winning formula for gaming TV were doubly dismayed.

As emerged in the days following the announcement, Videogame Nation was a victim of circumstance. Challenge TV chose not to renew the »

Report – Play Expo at Braehead Arena Glasgow

16 June 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scott Watson reports from the Play Expo at Braehead Arena Glasgow…

Replay Events have been running the Play Expo series of gaming festivals across the UK for a number of years now, but this was their first visit to Glasgow with the event.  It felt very much like they were finding their feet with it as well on reflection, perhaps to gauge interest from the gaming community here in Scotland before looking at bringing up a much grander event.

The Braehead Arena is home to the Braehead Clan ice hockey team, and the rink floor was essentially converted into the main area of the event.  It was split equally into a gaming zone and trader zone, with various other smaller sections covering the likes of Lan gaming, rhythm games and the ever-present green screen photo booth but all of these felt difficult to find throughout the warren of areas outwith the arena.

Over the course of the two days the event saw over 4,000 people through the doors, which is a great start for this event on its first appearance in Glasgow.  While it perhaps wasn’t the largest in scale, it did provide a warm and friendly atmosphere that was ideal for the throngs of parents and their kids I saw coming and going around.

As a gamer of a quite discernible age, it was wonderful to see so many kids show interest in the gaming platforms that I grew up with as a kid and beyond.  Queues were never a problem as there seemed to be plenty of consoles or platforms around for those visiting to play.  It was great seeing the old Atari 2600, Jaguar, NeoGeo and more recent consoles such as the Dreamcast, Saturn and N64 all seeing some love sent their way, but even if you’d had enough of playing on these retro consoles you could still find yourself turning to current gen hits on PS4 and Xbox One to take up your time, or hit up the Minecraft zone which was chock-full of kids at play.

Within the gaming zone as well was a wonderful collection of arcade and pinball cabinets that, for me personally, brought back a ton of memories.  Games such as Dig Dug, Afterburner, Defender and Outrun to name a few all seemed to be constantly in play with no-one seeming to hog any cabinets or pinball tables (of which the Indiana Jones one for me was a total highlight).  It was all very civilized indeed compared to the manic sprints seen at the likes of Egx.  In fact, the only real queues I saw over the weekend were the demos for the Oculus Rift and Htc Vive that were seeing a lot of interest.

If you fancied a change of direction from the games, the cabinets and the pinball machines you could take some time to visit the Vs Scotland fighting booth and spectate or even take on other combatants in Street Fighter accompanied by running commentary to great effect.   Cosplay was in good effect throughout the weekend too, although I was perhaps expecting more than were actually there.  That being said, as always, the quality of costumes on display was nothing short of spectacular.

In terms of any new gaming experiences over the weekend, that was left to the indies in the We Throw Switches section and there was one particular standout for me; Ruffian Games outstanding multiplayer arena shooter Fragmental, a single screen top down combat arena with random weapon drops and traps that looked intense, manic and a lot of fun.

So that was Glasgow’s first taste of the Play Expo and it felt like a real celebration and education of gaming.  Perhaps a bit small in scale but it’s a great opener to what I’m sure and hope will be a regular occurrence in the gaming calender up here in Scotland.

Warcraft – Review

9 June 2016 10:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

So, we’re almost at the halfway point for movie year 2016. Since we’re a few weeks into the Summer flick season, the studios are trying to hedge their bets (and investments) by delivering entertainment with a recognizable name. There’s been a glut of sequels (two this very weekend), and two franchise films based on comic book characters (Cap’s latest is the year’s biggest hit). Hmmm, what other properties are ripe for cinematic exploitation? Ah yes, games! Just a few weeks ago Angry Birds, an animated romp based on an “app”, grabbed the number one box office slot from the shield-slinger! And this weekend sees a live action/CGI-animated hybrid based on an immensely popular on-line video game that began 22  years ago. Now, the studios have been trying to lure game players into the multiplex for years, well over twenty since those Super Mario Brothers made the »

Capcom Apologizes For Poor Communication Regarding Street Fighter V Dlc Delay

3 June 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Capcom has come forward with an apology to all Street Fighter V players in regards to the miscommunication surrounding the release date of next Dlc character Ibuki. In a statement released yesterday on the company’s Unity blog, Capcom admitted that there’s room for improvement in regards to communication with the game’s community and that they’re working hard to rectify it in the future.

We’ll be the first to admit that we can improve our communication with the community, in terms of where our priorities lie around the game and status updates. We plan to change that in the coming weeks and months and will work to quickly address topics that come up in the community as best we can.

The post continues to confirm that, while Ibuki was originally planned to appear in-game in the last week of May (the original plan was to release »

Behind the Scenes at the Cineplex WorldGaming Street Fighter V Finals

1 June 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This past Sunday, May 29th , the crowd gathered. You’d be forgiven for thinking the red carpet stretched out in the lobby of the Cineplex Scotiabank theatre in Toronto was for an A-list studded movie premiere. It is a movie theatre, after all. But this time, all the glitz and the glamour was for Canada’s top Street Fighter V champions, and they were there to compete for some serious cash. There was a hum of anticipation as the players waited to walk the red carpet. Past the red carpet, inside the belly of the beast, lay their thunder sticks and Ryu-inspired headbands. It was time to fight. It was time for Cineplex WorldGaming's Canadian Championships — Street Fighter V edition.

 

Decibel level 70: the sound of busy traffic. »

Ibuki Confirmed As Street Fighter V’s Third Dlc Character

31 May 2016 7:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Street Fighter V‘s rather lacklustre amount of day one content no doubt left a bit of a sour taste in many a fan’s mouth, but with each passing month, Capcom is doing their best to rectify past mistakes. New stages, characters and game modes are just some of the new features added since the game launched back in March, and that trend continues today with the announcement of returning character Ibuki.

Making her third appearance in the series after her début in Street Fighter III: New Generations and then Street Fighter IV, Ibuki returns for Street Fighter V sporting a new look and a bag full of ninja tricks.

Besides her trademark kunai and energy-based moves, the petite fighter now has the ability to throw bombs on the floor with varying detonation timers depending on button input that – if they successfully hit – can keep her enemies off the »

Why Street Fighter V Commands an Audience at WorldGaming Events

26 May 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

There is just something about Street Fighter that begs for an audience.

 

As a teen growing up in '90s suburbia, I would make the hike to the local arcade and slide my quarter into the game. In those days it was Street Fighter 2: Champion's Edition. Whenever another challenger would slide their coin into the Player 2 slot, others would gather around the booth to watch the match. You knew your moves had to be top-notch, or you’d risk the groans and laughs of the crowd. The most important part of Street Fighter was that it could command an audience.

There's an electricity whenever the game is played, especially with the new chapter Street Fighter V. And on May 29, Cineplex’s Scotiabank Theatre will be alight as 32 Street Fighter V champions from across Canada bring their “A”-game to the Cineplex WorldGaming National finals.

There are many fighting games available to gamers, »

11 Things We Learned Hanging With Oscar Isaac

26 May 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

No actor had a better 2015 than Oscar Isaac. He found a hilariously unsettling take on an eccentric tech billionaire (with serious dance chops) in Ex Machina; embodied the real-life tragedy of a Yonkers politician in his Golden Globe-winning turn in David Simon's Show Me a Hero; and spent quality time with Bb-8 and Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, he's the titular blue-skinned villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, which landed him on the cover of Rolling Stone, accompanied with his dog, Moby. Here's more from interviews for his cover story. »

Comic Book Review – Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #4

Gary Collinson reviews Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #4…

The World Warrior Tournament enters the finals, and M. Bison will stop at nothing to be the last one standing! Can the Street Fighters and G.I. Joe stop the Shadaloo dictator before he takes the top spot?

See Also: Check out a preview of Street Fighter X G.I. Joe #4 here

Here we are with the penultimate issue of Idw’s big crossover between Street Fighter and G.I. Joe, as Rufus battles Jinx and M. Bison takes on Guile for a place in the final of the M.A.R.S. Industries-sponsored World Warrior Tournament.

Previous chapters have stuck rigidly to a four-fight structure, which left the bouts feeling a little rushed, and the series itself little repetitive. In that regard, it makes a refreshing change that we get to see a more space devoted to both of the semi-final bouts here, »

Koihime Enbu Review

24 May 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The resurgence of the fighting game genre has been great for fans, but with new titles coming out monthly, it’s growing increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd. Most games try to combat this by adding more depth or unique mechanics that you can’t find elsewhere. Unknown Games’ Koihime Enbu seemingly takes the opposite approach, and instead focuses on building around solid fundamentals.

While there are disappointingly no tutorials (which is ridiculous, and one of the common reasons why the genre fails to gain new fans), it won’t take long for players to pick up the combat in Koihime Enbu. Each of the 13 female fighters are armed with different weapons, but they all play pretty similar on a core level. Enbu is a 4-button fighting game with 3 core attack buttons (low, medium and high), and another button being used exclusively for throws. That level of simplicity is surprisingly refreshing, »

Capcom could be reviving its "vast library of content"

To boost profits, Capcom could be revisiting old IP that "have not yet been utilised to their full potential," the company says...

We've already heard Capcom admit to investors that Street Fighter V required "a little more time" in development before its release in March, and how its lower-than-expected sales have prompted a bit of a rethink at the Japanese firm. In short, it pledges to spend more time polishing a game rather than rush it out for a preset release window; "It's best to spend a littel more time in developing and running a high-quality title that will perform well globally," Capcom said.

As part of its future strategy, Capcom has said it's also set to "increase the ratio of internally developed titles" and also look back into its extensive archive of games and properties.

Street Fighter V: Capcom admits the game needed more dev time

"It's best to spend a little more time," Capcom admits, as Street Fighter V's sales fail to match expectations...

Street Fighter V was one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, but when it finally arrived, it faced major criticism for a skeletal package that didn't even include all of the standard fighting game content—such as a story mode.

Of course, since the game's release in February, there have been regular updates that include new characters and modes. Still, there's a sense among many fans that Capcom released a game that clearly wasn't finished in order to maximise profits. But in a recent earnings presentation, Capcom revealed that Street Fighter V sold less copies than originally projected: only 1.4 million of an expected 2 million as of March 31st.

1.4 million copies in less than two months is absolutely nothing to scoff at, but it does raise »

Capcom admits Street Fighter V had “lack of content”

12 May 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Capcom’s CEO has acknowledged that Street Fighter V, which under-performed by 600,000 copies, had a “lack of content” and “needed more polish.”

CEO Kenzo Tsujimoto made the bold comments during the company’s recent earnings call. The English translation of the report can be found here. Tsujimoto explained that Capcom had learned over the last year that “it’s best to spend a little more time in developing and running a high-quality title that will perform well globally.” Tsujimoto said that Street Fighter V was one such game that should have spent longer in development.

“Some aspects of Street Fighter V needed more polish, such as the lack of content and server issues at launch,” he said. “Accordingly, we feel it’s better to give a little more time to development than before, and have made slight adjustments to our portfolio.”

Street Fighter V was widely criticised at launch for »

Street Fighter V Sales Reach 1.4 Million; Fails To Meet Capcom’s Target

9 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sales of Street Fighter V have reached 1.4 million copies between PlayStation 4 and PC, Capcom has confirmed in their latest Investor Relations report. However, despite the high number, the figure has fallen short of the 2 million target set by the company prior to release. The current sales account for units sold up to the end of Capcom’s previous financial year, which ended on March 31, leaving the deficit at a troubling 600,000.

There are several possible explanations for the smaller-than-expected sales numbers, but most will attribute the disappointing result to the criticism on launch day that the game felt more like an early access title rather than a full release, having been devoid of any substantial single player features, most notably an arcade mode traditionally included in past entries.
