Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, But It Succeeds Superbly as a Tournament Game

Ramsey reckons Capcom's latest is a joy to watch

I stayed up until 07:00AM this morning watching the last eight of a Street Fighter V tournament. When I told editor Sammy Barker about my shenanigans, he looked at me like I was a complete lunatic – but I don't regret it one bit, because Capcom's vision for the brawler has finally clicked with...

Resident Evil Umbrella Corps Stands Under Capcom's Brolly a Little Longer

Stay dry

Iffy looking PlayStation 4 spin-off shooter Resident Evil Umbrella Corps will stay frosty a little longer than intended, as Capcom has delayed the title out of its original May release window and into June.

Capcom: We Underestimated Street Fighter V's Single Player Popularity

You don't say

Street Fighter V, when you're in the midst of a bout, is an unbeatable experience. Capcom's latest brawler is arguably one of its greatest, but unless you're obsessed with the online component, there's still not a whole lot to do in the title.

Capcom Knocks a Super Platinum Rank Street Fighter V Player Down to Bronze

Ouch

Capcom wasn't lying when it said that there were going to be some harsh penalties for quitting out of unfinished matches in Street Fighter V, and a fine example of the developer's effort to rid the game of quitters comes thanks to the case of Japanese player World_Combo. World_Combo was one of two combatants to first reach the Super Platinum...
