Dead Rising 3 story trailer is a bloody mess

Dead Rising 3 is due out for the Xbox One launch, and from the looks of a new story trailer, it's attempting to fulfill the system's blood quota all by itself. We get some more insight to exactly why new protagonist Nick Ramos is cutting a path through Fortune City, interspersed with buckets of viscera.

How Dead Rising 3 tones down the silliness (a little)

How Dead Rising 3 tones down the silliness (a little)

Dead Rising has taken more than a few turns for the silly, to the point that a major plot point in the second game revolved around a zombie-killing gameshow. When Capcom set about making Dead Rising 3, it wanted to tone down the wackiness, if for nothing else than to make zombies scary again.

Lost Planet 3 sales below Capcom expectations

Lost Planet 3 sales below Capcom expectations

Lost Planet is clearly an attempt to appeal to the western market, as Capcom keeps farming it to western developers. The strategy doesn't seem to have caught fire like the company hoped, however, as Lost Planet 3 failed to meet sales expectations.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies review - family law

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies review - family law

It's been a long time since Capcom's premiere attorney has been able to shine in a title bearing his name. But Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies isn't just the story of the titular character's return to the courtroom. It's a series of tales that mixes together high-stakes drama and goofy anime antics to create a satisfying ensemble production, albeit one that dangerously tows the line between engagement and tedium.

Dead Rising 3's procedural generation promises: 'you'll never see the same zombie twice'

Dead Rising 3's procedural generation promises: 'you'll never see the same zombie twice'

Dead Rising 3 has always been about killing the undead and looking good. Whether wearing a Mega Man costume or a tutu, the heroes of Capcom's zombie apocalypse have always looked unique. Finally, the same can be said about the hordes of flesh-eating corpses.

Capcom producer Mike Jones explained that "you'll never see the same zombie twice" due to the game's procedural generation technique. "It's all procedurally generated: hair styles, clothing, colors, textures. And the gore is too: missing jaws, missing eyes... it's all totally dynamic. That's a whole system that we built. We didn't just model the zombies, we had to model the pieces and the system puts them together."

Strider video shows off eight minutes of gameplay

Strider video shows off eight minutes of gameplay

Strider is coming back. In a new eight minute gameplay video, you'll get to see what attendees of Tokyo Game Show got to play. In the demo Hiryu runs and slashes his way through a Metroidvania environment. Along the way, he'll collect various power-ups that allow him to access new parts of the level. For example, a charge attack will not only break through enemy shields, but power generators that unlock new doors. A slide attack will help you dodge bullet fire, but also bust through low grates that hide new passageways.

The video ends with a battle against a robotic dragon, and should give you a good idea of the kind of chaotic action Capcom is going for with their modern-day throwback.

Deep Down TGS trailer doesn't clear up much

So Capcom's Deep Down is an online action-RPG and has some weird futuristic framing narrative, but what exactly is the game and what is going on with its story? A new trailer out of the Tokyo Game Show won't answer either of those questions, but it will give you a look at knights throwing magic grenades at a dragon, and some cute little toys.

DuckTales: Remastered jumps to retail on November 12

"Bah humbug," Scrooge would say. "I don't know how to download digital video games! Give me a disc-based copy at retail!"

Okay, this scenario is thoroughly unlikely--ducks can't talk y'know. However, that isn't stopping Capcom from releasing a new disc-based retail release of DuckTales: Remastered. While a retail version is already available on PS3, a new version will be hitting Xbox 360 and Wii U next month.
