It’s been years since I played Resident Evil in my sister’s apartment. Now I don’t quite remember which Resident Evil it was, it was such a long time ago, but I remember how much of a rush it was to play it. I tend to stress out over survival horror games like these but I still enjoy them. Resident Evil Revelations was published by Capcom and developed by Capcom and Tose. The ga...[Read More]
It’s time for the XBLA/PSN fighting game market to add one more title to its ranks. Capcom has announced a release date for its upcoming compilation title, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins.

Fans who purchased Capcom’s recent RPG Dragon’s Dogma in order to get early access to the Xbox 360 Resident Evil 6 demo have been able to play for quite a while now. If you’re not one of those people, but have still been looking forward to Resident Evil 6, then here’s some good news for you: September 18th sees the Resident Evil 6 demo available for all users on the Xbox 36...[Read More]
Capcom loves releasing fighting games. I’ll admit, I own quite a few Capcom fighting titles, but I don’t always give them the love that’s needed. Maybe it’s because I’m bad at them…one day I’d love to have a nice fight-stick to help increase my chances of winning. That being said, today Capcom has announced the limited edition Street Fighter 25th Anniversa...[Read More]
As soon as we came up with the podcast title for this week’s episode, I had a sudden urge for a sandwich. I could have asked my wife to make one for me, but I am particularly averse to getting slapped in the back of the head. “Stop Playing Tekken and Make Me A Sandwich” marks Episode 019 of Marooners’ Talk. We’re a day late because SOMEONE had to have a birthday yeste...[Read More]
This review will be particularly painful for me to write. If Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and its small roster and lack of content was a slap in the face, releasing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the same calendar year with the amount of content that should have existed in the original release was a kick in the crotchal region. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is what Marvel vs. Capcom 3 should have been in t...[Read More]
It’s been over two and a half years since Capcom graced us with Resident Evil 5 (although some fans will disagree with it being a grace), and I believe it’s about time for some new information. Unfortunately, Capcom doesn’t exactly feel the same way, and all information regarding the sixth installment in the long running survival horror series has been shrouded in a heavy blanket...[Read More]
When Resident Evil first came out, it introduced millions of gamers to the survival horror genre it solidified and defined. It also helped make zombies the oversaturated theme it is today. Well over a decade later, the franchise is still going strong with dozens of games across multiple gaming platforms. Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X recently made its debut on PSN and XBLA, but it originated on t...[Read More]
It’s no secret that gamers are ruled by nostalgia. Each time we pick up the controller we’re trying to recreate that incredible first time when everything was new and exciting. Like the drug addict, we keep trying, but we always refer back to what came before. With such a passion for the classics, the recent deluge of “High Definition” remakes is hardly surprising, and since Resident Evil 4 seems ...[Read More]
That sound you hear? That is every bit of my rage concentrated into a pure form of energy and being shot out into the universe, vibrating every single molecule in existence. What a horrid sound it is. What, you think this lead in is over dramatic? I don’t!
Downloadable Content (DLC) has been a total game-changer this generation for consoles. From PC-like expansions, to map packs, we’ve seen just about every type of digital good sold either on Xbox Live Marketplace or the PSN Store. Under all the glitter and gold of really great DLC, is a very dark world. Something much worse than the nickel and dime DLC trick (I’m looking at you Guitar Hero an...[Read More]
