Ultra Street Fighter IV Gets a Release Date on PS4, Certainly Sounds Like an Ultimate Package

PS4 re-release has no input lag

Ultra Street Fighter IV has been dealt a confirmed release date on PlayStation 4, and the good news is that it's not very far away. The brawler will smash up Sony's newest console on the 26th May in both Europe and North America. The next-gen re-release will set you back $24.99, which we assume will equate to...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Vita Will Rear Its Ugly Head This Summer

Claire we go

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is one of the surprise releases of 2015 so far, serving up a slice of survival horror that's both spooky and self-aware. With the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions already wrapped up, though, we had been starting to ponder where the promised PlayStation Vita edition had got to; fortunately, SCEA's...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (PlayStation 4)

Dead good

Resident Evil's been in a bit of a rut of late, and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 never looked like it was going to break that cycle prior to release. With dated visuals, dodgy dialogue, and rudimentary third-person shooting, the title didn't exactly put its best foot forward in press previews. But this spin-off – a successor to the...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode Four: Metamorphosis (PlayStation 4)

Dumb and dumber

Pin back your decaying lugholes and listen for a second: there are two endings to Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and one will leave you feeling significantly more satisfied than the other. In what's perhaps a nod to survival horror games of old, there's a throwaway choice in an earlier episode that completely changes the complexion of...

PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Is Aiming to Have a 10 Year Life Span

Still no release date, though

Always good for a tease, Capcom has released an interview with Deep Down's Teruki Miyashita. In it, the senior manager of consumer games development talks about the free-to-play title's development, it's graphical prowess, and its life span. "To make the best use of the performance of PlayStation 4, we have brought...

Two is better than one

Those of you eager to show off your zombie zapping skills may be thrilled to learn that Resident Evil: Revelations 2's online Raid Mode will finally launch later this month. Capcom told Eurogamer.net that the feature will be patched in on 31st March, concluding a baffling release schedule for the surprisingly good survival...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode Three: Judgment (PlayStation 4)

Meat is murder

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been the surprise package of 2015 so far, serving up a survival horror experience befitting of the brand that it belongs to. Episode Three: Judgment furthers this fine form, delivering what feels like an extended highlights reel, demonstrating everything that makes Capcom's cult series great. It may...

DmC: Devil May Cry - Definitive Edition (PlayStation 4)

The devil fears Sparda

You can almost feel Ninja Theory's middle finger protruding out of DmC: Devil May Cry - Definitive Edition, a remastered version of its polarising 2013 reboot. Rather than settle for a simple visual overhaul, the Cambridge-based developer has delved deep into the core of its divisive PlayStation 3 title, retuning aspects of...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode Two: Contemplation (PlayStation 4)

Well drilled

This is uncharted territory, isn't it? We're used to waiting months for the second instalment in Telltale's episodic outings – Tales from the Borderlands, anyone? – but Capcom's already returned with a timely dose of the surprisingly solid Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Of course, the speed at which Episode Two: Contemplation has...

Penal infection

You never know quite what you're going to get with Resident Evil anymore. After all, Capcom's flagship franchise has cultivated so many clangers over the years that it's lucky to be held in such high esteem. Of course, a lot of that goodwill stems from the series' various smash hits: an unforgettable night in the Spencer Mansion, a...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Breath of Fire IV?

Split personality

Another PSone game that was released around the same time that the PlayStation 2 hit store shelves, Breath of Fire IV got a little lost among the initial transition. And that's a real shame, because we reckon that Capcom's final numbered Breath of Fire title is right up there with the best role-playing games on Sony's first...
