ESPN Thought Mika's Costume Showed Too Much Skin in Street Fighter V Finals

Runner-up Fuudo was told to change it

Street Fighter had its biggest Evo ever this year, with a colossal 5,000 players entering the Street Fighter V tournament over the weekend – it was so massive that even sports network ESPN covered it live on television.

Meet Street Fighter V's EVO 2016 Champion

KO

He came, he saw, he kicked some ass: South Korea's Lee 'Infiltration' Seonwoo won last night's Street Fighter V tournament at EVO 2016, beating Keita 'Fuudo' Ai in the final. This was the biggest tournament in Street Fighter history, with a whopping 5,000 players signing up to compete. The game only released in February, so at least Capcom's...

Ensure You Have Enough Cash for Resident Evil 4 on PS4, Stranger

Hehehe, thank you

What're yer buyin' on 30th August? Resident Evil 4, of course. The legendary third-person shooter – which is surely in the running for the greatest game ever made – will lurch its way to the PlayStation 4 on 30th August, publisher Capcom has announced. There's no word on a price yet, but both Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil...

Review: Resident Evil 5 (PS4)

Resident Evil 5 (PS4)

Simply Redfield

Don't let anyone tell you that Resident Evil 5's a rotter – it's only partially decomposed. Seven years removed from its original release, Capcom's controversial African adventure remains somewhat entertaining – even if old problems die hard. This schizophrenic outback outing has a bit of an identity crisis, but its biggest issue...

Resident Evil 7 Breaks PS4 Demo Records

Giving other games the finger

Resident Evil 7's self-contained demo experience Beginning Hour has set the record for PlayStation 4 demo downloads in North America, becoming the most coveted slice of sampler content in its first week of release. There are a lot of stipulations here, so we're going to attempt that sentence again: more people in...

We Hope Street Fighter V's Story Mode Is as Good as Its Trailer

Rise up

Street Fighter V's finally getting some dedicated single player content tomorrow in the form of a free downloadable story mode, and judging from its official trailer, it actually looks pretty good. Sure, the writing's as cheesy as you'd expect and it seems suitably mental, but it's a well worked video all the same. Having said that, we've...

Street Fighter V's Best Pro Player Rivalry Served Up an Incredible CEO 2016 Grand Final Last Night

You gotta watch this one

Fighting game tournament CEO 2016 ended with a bang last night as arguably the two best Street Fighter V players in the world went head to head in the grand final. South Korea's Infiltration has won several professional competitions already since Capcom's title launched, and he's often looked unstoppable as Nash, utilising...

Street Fighter V Free Story Mode Update Now Comes with Boxing Bruiser Balrog

But it's been delayed ever so slightly

The good news: Balrog is now busting onto the Street Fighter V scene alongside previously revealed kunoichi Ibuki as part of the game's free story mode update. The bad news: the update is no longer being released this month. The not-quite-as-disappointing-as-you-first-thought news: the update will now deploy...

Review: Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Corps party

Being loyal to a franchise's roots and formula is a tricky thing to manage. Veer too close and people will cry out concerns of stagnation and lack of innovation. Stray too far and they'll say it isn't worthy of the series' name. Whether this involves direct sequels or spin-offs, the amorphous goal of striding between faithfulness and...

Resident Evil 7 Producer Was Gutted by Silent Hills' Cancellation

"I really loved it"

Resident Evil 7 looks to have taken a little inspiration from P.T., the demo for Silent Hills. However, according to producer Masachika Kawata, the sequel was in development before Konami's famous demo deployed. That said, it sounds like everyone at Capcom was a big fan of the concept – and the publisher was sad to see the...

Resident Evil 7 on PS4 Aims to Finish What Silent Hills Started

Resi reanimated

It's fitting that Capcom would reveal the seventh instalment of its once great franchise alongside the much anticipated reveal of Hideo Kojima's latest project, because Resident Evil 7 seems to be a full realisation of what Kojima set out to do with Silent Hills. After years of inferior sequels, HD remasters, and some serious...
