Color Me Excited: DMC4 Demo Early 2008

posted in: Game News 0

Dispelling earlier rumors, Capcom issued a press release (Thanks Hexus.gaming) today which revealed that a demo of Capcom’s hack and slash devilry will be hitting the XBOX Live! Marketplace and the PSN Store sometime early 2008.

Between, Devil May Cry 4, Ninja Gaiden 2 (XBOX 360) and the potential release of God of War 3 (PS3), 2008 is shaping up to be an excellent year for fans of the genre. FPS purists be damned, 2008 is the year of the third person action adventure.

Street Fighter IV: First Screenshot

posted in: Game News 0

First Screenshot of Street Fighter 4 From 1UP.com

Look at this. It is a screenshot (From 1UP)of Street Fighter IV, in-engine. I was puzzled at first, but after reading some of the associated info, I am cautiously optimistic. 3-D visuals and a strictly 2-D fighting engine? Sounds good so far. I just need to see this game animate in the form of a combo video of some sort.

If Street Fighter IV is too much for you to handle, how about some of the changes for Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo HD Remix’ Balance Mode? A couple of days ago, David Sirlin updated the blog over at Capcom Unity concerning the changes they are making to Ken Masters. His Hurricane Kicks and Dragon Punches will be improved; very nice.

No release dates have been pegged for either Street Fighters as of yet.

XBOX 360 Fall 2007 Update Impressions

The XBOX 360 Fall 2007 Dashboard update was unleashed upon the world today and it is probably the best update ever for Microsoft’s box. I was very impressed with the changes made. Performing the update also reminded me how easy and relatively painless it is to update the console compared to a System Update on the PLAYSTATION 3. I guess if there is anyone who should be good at patching, it would be Microsoft.

Here were some of the key changes which I appreciated:

– Improved Dashboard performance
– Added DivX/Xvid support.
– Improved organization layout of most blades
– Friends of Friends

Full change log can be found here.
