Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Episode One: Penal Colony (PlayStation 4)

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...

Is Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Rotten or Ripe on PS4?

Claire's accessories

Resident Evil: Revelations faced a tough test when we reviewed it on the PlayStation 3 a couple of years ago. At the time of its release in May 2013, this author had already played a meaty chunk of The Last of Us, and Jill Valentine's oceanic romp failed to really live up. In hindsight, it was perhaps a little unfair to expect...

Should have known

Today's a pretty big day for game releases, but, as per usual, something's went a bit wrong on the PlayStation Store. Many users are reporting that they can't download or preload Dragon Ball XenoVerse and Resident Evil: Revelations 2. This appears to be caused by some sort of problem with Sony's service, but the company has...

You've got Redfield on you

With so many games adopting different pricing models and release structures these days, it's becoming increasingly difficult to figure out a review strategy that makes sense. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 really takes the biscuit, though, launching on a disc in March – but also as part of four weekly episodes on the...

Dragon's Dogma Online Definitely Looks Worthy of Your Time in This New Trailer

The whole hogma

It's normal to be cautious of free-to-play titles in this day and age, but we'd still love to get our hands on Dragon's Dogma Online. The game's newest trailer provides a good look at the release and its characters, as well as some of the monsters that you'll be fighting. It looks a heck of a lot like Dragon's Dogma, but we suppose...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Dragon's Dogma?

Flamin' heck

Capcom is one of those companies that people like to shout about – usually in a fit of rage – but we'd be mad to forget about one of its best original properties in years: Dragon's Dogma. Released on the PlayStation 3, the title is a bit like a Japanese take on open world, Western role-playing games. It's got just about everything...

Resident Evil is its fastest selling digital title

You Won't Be Getting PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Anytime Soon

Deeper down than you think

There's been a lot of speculation about the future of PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down, especially after publisher Capcom recently revealed Dragon's Dogma Online, another free-to-play title that's heading to Sony's newest console in Japan this year. Depending on your perspective, the following is either going to be...

Monster hunting

Assuming Dragon's Dogma Online's free-to-play model doesn't sour the overall experience, the biggest worry that we have right now is that we'll never actually get to play it — or at least, we won't get to play it in English. The title's newest screenshots look rather good, showing off some of the monsters that you'll be going...

You're in luck if the recently released remake of Resident Evil made you hungry for more undead action, because publisher Capcom's having a series sale on the North American PlayStation Store. You can make some decent savings on titles from across the franchise, but you'd better rise from your eternal slumber quickly, as the...

Fighting Game Champs Duke It Out in PS4 Console Exclusive Street Fighter V

Ken you feel the hype?

Street Fighter V is clearly a long way away from being finished, but Capcom is taking an interesting approach with the game, allowing pros to get hands-on time with an early version of the sequel – before presumably grilling them for feedback thereafter. And in the video embedded below, you'll see veteran Daigo 'The Beast'...

PS4 and PS3 Console Exclusive Dragon's Dogma Online Looks Fantastic in New Famitsu Scans

Getting hot in here

This week's Famitsu magazine seems to have blown open the recently announced Dragon's Dogma Online, and we've got a few scans from the publication to prove it. Obviously there's not too much that you can learn from the images unless you can read Japanese, but we reckon that the lovely pictures make them worth studying. Indeed,...

Dead rising

Who doesn't love a good microtransaction? Capcom caused the web to pull out their pitchforks this week by announcing that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will feature premium Life Crystals, which you'll be able to use to reanimate yourself should you die in the forthcoming survival horror's Raid Mode. We can't bear the tension. To be fair,...
