I don’t play Dead Rising to kill zombies. I play Dead Rising to dress up in my underwear and run around with a moose head on. Capcom, apparently, supports this kind of behavior. Enjoy some new clothes to make Chuck look ridiculous.
Today Capcom announced that, even though months have passed since the launch of Super Street Fighter IV, they will continue to roll out new alternate costumes for their fans, with some coming out as early as October 26th.
I’ve never been a big fan of the Resident Evil series. It’s never held even the slightest bit of appeal for me. Lindsey, on the other hand, has for the most part been completely enamored with it, so perhaps she will be more excited by part of this news than I am.

Capcom announced the upcoming game, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds at PAX at the beginning of the month, and Lindsey jumped on it to share that tidbit of excitement with the world. Well, I’m hopping on her bandwagon – I have a new trailer to share with you now!
Finally, after 20 years I can put a Hard Hat head on Mega Man.
The gaming equivalent to James Bond’s Q came out at PAX with a whole bunch of gizmos and gadgets that will make our gaming lives so much better.
Don’t believe me? Check out the new game play from the Blue Bomber’s newest incarnation, Mega Man Universe. What’s old is new again as you get side scrolling, Mega Bustering, platform jumping action with good ol’ Mega Man and…Ryu?
The Penny Arcade Expo, PAX, is less than two days away, so brace yourselves for an onslaught of gaming news and goodness this weekend. Today Capcom sent out an email letting the press know the games that they would be showing, so that people could have hands-on time with them. This list goes like this:
