Keiji Inafune Leaves Capcom

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune has announced that he will be leaving Capcom at the end of this month. The former head of Research and Development had been with Capcom for 23 years. Recently, Inafune had expressed his disappointment on the current state of the Japanese gaming industry. He believed that the Japanese gaming industry was finished, made awful games, and that developers weren't taking the job serious. Inafune announced his retirement on his blog in an entry titled "Sayonara." This is probably shocking news to most Mega Man fans. Inafune was also attached to huge projects such as Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3. His career is in no way over as he stated he only reached his peak at Capcom. After 23 years, I'd probably be looking for a new home and some new air to breathe too.

We're Still Not Out of the Zombie Phase

And maybe that's a good thing. First we have the recent release of the Undead Nightmare DLC for Red Dead Redemption and now Capcom announces that Dead Rising 2 has shipped over 2 million copies since launch. That's great news, but I think I've had my fill of zombies. Time for something new or at least forgotten. Dinosaurs maybe? Because we all want to brofist a pterodactyl.

Creepy, but Amazing.

Hopefully this technology won't end up being used in some creepy sex game. I bet I'm the only one who caught this below too.

Is this the Playstation Phone?

If not, then this is some damn good mock. Engadget claims this is the real deal. It's believed to be running  the Android 3.0 OS and have a Sony marketplace to download games. Other details include:
  • 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 
  • 512MB of RAM 
  • 1GB of ROM  
  • Screen Size:  about 3.7 to 4.1 inches. 
Better late than never Sony...I'd be focusing more on the PSP2 and it's features. If this phone does succeed, it will probably be because of the ability to use a D-pad to play games instead of tapping on the screen or struggling with a small keypad. This thing better pack a ridiculously high battery life!

Ohhh the Passion

I wouldn't mind working here! Seriously.

Professor Layton x Ace Attorney Trailer

I wonder how the worlds mix in this 3DS game featuring characters from the Professor Layton and Ace Attorney series. I hope it features both styles of gameplay. Capccom is going all out with the crossovers! We Street Fighter x Tekken, Tekken x Street Fighter, and also Mega Man Universe. I wonder what's next...

Halo: Reach - Noble Map Pack Trailer

Hopefully this map pack comes with this badass music as well!

Go to 1:12.

I played the demo and it seems the combat had a little more depth to it. I couldn't pull off that combo in the video above, but I did do some pretty crazy stuff. The camera still seems to be a problem but it only happened once during the trial. I feel a little more comfortable about purchasing this title now but the question is: Do we really need all these pointless characters added to the fray? I mean seriously. Are you really going to play as Cooler's bozo squad below? Someone else could have their spots. Such as GT characters who are NOT featured in this game.

Zenonia Fail.

Zenonia on iPhone = Great. Controls can get iffy sometimes.
Zenonia on DS = Great. D-pad control.
Zenonia on PS3 = Great (Even on a large HDTV and better D-pad control. There's a little delay while saving and returning to game.)
Zenonia on PSP = FAIL.

Seriously. How could this game NOT make a safe journey to PSP? It was released this past Tuesday in the Playstation Store. The game is so laggy. The cutscenes are somewhat smooth. The combat is slow and unresponsive and dashing doesn't even work properly. Opening the menu and navigating the menu is slow as well. There's even delay while trying to save the game. I'm using a slim 2000 with the newest firmware update. If you decide to purchase this game, you are better off enjoying it on the PS3. Don't waste your time copying it to the PSP. It will make for a boring car trip or have you looking like an ass for trying to show it off to friends like I did. :(

Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy TGS Trailer w/ Subtitles

Looks like this game is gonna be good. As in Final Fantasy confusing good. I don't know wtf is going on even with the subtitles. Lightning also looks like she's going to be a very versatile character since she can use Final Fantasy XIII's paradigm shift to mix up her gameplay. Also more good news from this game. Tifa has her Advent Children outfit. I wonder though. Does that include the breast reduction as well? Doesn't look like it from this. Begin the boob comparison!

Another Trailer for Red Dead Redemption's Zombie DLC

Better load up on ammo!

Gran Turismo 5 Delayed....Again

I'm not even counting the delays anymore. I have Forza 3 to hold me over until this game's inevitable release. We can now forget about the Nov 2nd release date and play other big titles that will be out. The excuse for the delay this time is the same as it was last time or at least similar. Here's what SCEA producer Taki Imasaki had to say on the Playstation blog:

We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.
We'll have more information for you in the near future, but said that it will be coming this "holiday season."
Blah, blah, blah. We can all wait on perfection! Go ahead and throw some crazy stories out there that could be the reason for the delay. Like maybe.....this being released on the 360!!!!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: Behind the Game Part 5

"Ninja Bosses"

If you enjoyed that, enjoy this scan even more! Famitsu gave the title a 39/40!

Demoralizing the Troops

I randomly stumbled across this on Youtube...

This dude hates campers? Do you? He reminds me of FPS Doug from Pure Pwnage.

I hate campers too, but it is a strategy. Also if you take it from a realistic standpoint, soldiers don't run around like this guy does in a real battle. It's all about that precision and the quick kill. This guy became so mad and the Modern Warfare 2 campers and asked Treyarch to fix the problem and of course they didn't or can't. They wouldn't take out maps. So how does this guy reacts?

I guess Treyarch better have their shit together this time around or guess what?

Star Wars Force Unleashed II Demo Now Available

On the Xbox Live Marketplace. DOWNLOADING NOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!! I hope there's improvements! Thanks to Jeremy "THEjdb360" Buxton [UnNamed/GEEK] for the heads-up.

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition DLC KO'D

Thanks Capcom USA for letting everyone know games are NOT about fun. A few days ago Yoshinori Ono flew over to Capcom USA's office to propose the idea. Here's a few notes from his failed attempt.

So what happened with the Arcade Edition DLC characters proposal Ono-san?

Ono: I couldn't got approval from [upper level staff], but I'll continue [the] proposal!!

Good luck on getting your bosses to approve DLC.

Ono: Thanks. So, I got approval from my boss, Keiji Inafune, but I can't [get] it from [upper level staff]. ;(

My hype died! I give up on wishing for Arcade Edition DLC for SSF4 since you didn't got approval! =(

Ono: I'm not giving up yet. ;D

I guess we might as well get ready for Super Duper Street Fighter IV Ultra Deluxe Edition for our consoles and more expensive alternate costumes. Ono also stated that he is working on another project.

SSF4 AE DLC wasn't approved, new project in the works [Event Hubs]

Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Agito XIII TGS Trailer

Okay. Agito XIII is looking amazing. Gameplay? Exciting. Versus XIII? What the hell. If the Kingdom Hearts team is in charge of the gameplay, then why does it look so boring? Slash, slash, AAAAAND slash. I mean, honestly, that's a fricking Behemoth that's taking those boring attacks. Nomura is in charge of this game so I can't give up just yet!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 TGS Trailer

This is the 6th and I'm guessing last trailer for this game. The only thing left to do now is to buy the game. Some have gotten their hands on it already!

Kingdom Hearts Re: coded U.S. Release Date

Following the apparent leak of the European release date which is January 14, 2011, Square Enix OFFICIALLY announced that the American release date is January 11, 2011. Kingdom Hearts Re: coded is the Nintendo DS version of Kingdom Hearts coded, which was released on mobile phones in Japan. The story takes place after Kingdom Hearts II, therefore I won't give any details into the plot just in case any of you haven't played it yet. The gameplay will feature a mixture of elements from Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days, and the original Kingdom Hearts coded. Re:Coded was actually just released hours ago in Japan!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: Behind the Game Part 3

"NInja Stories"

Can I Be Excited?

Hell yeah! I don't agree with Andrew Garfield playing Spider-Man (shouldve been Logan Lerman imo), but I definitely think Emma is an excellent choice for Gwen. So bold and beautiful. I dont know why but for some reason every time I see Emma Stone, I see Lindsay Lohan. Probably because she's what Lohan could've been. Drugs bad!!! Video games good!

I Knew There Had to be Something I Missed From TGS.....

Gundam Musou 3 trailer! Seeing is believing and that cel-shading looks nice! Especially the smoke trailing from those rockets. What I did NOT see though was Gundam Wing and Gundam 0083. I'm not going to worry though. You don't think they'd leave out Deathscythe and GP02A do ya?!?!!?1!!!?!

Anamanaguchi Coming to Rock Band

And they are coming out of Mario's 8-bit pipe into the Rock Band Network (RBN) ! The song is their single, "Airbrushed," which will be one of the first songs to use RBN 2.0's new features which allows you to play chiptune sections with the Rock Band 3 keyboard. The song will be released after RBN 2.0 goes live. I think it should be an official release and advertised on the XBL Marketplace and PStore.

Gears of War 3 Delayed

*sigh* This has to be the biggest delay that I was NOT expecting. Gears of War 3, which was supposed to be released April 8, 2011 (Seven days before my birthday T_T ), is now being pushed back another five months and now has a vague "Fall 2011" date. Why? I don't know because I'm pretty sure this game was well on it's way to completion. My guess is because of marketing. All the MAJOR Halo games and stories are completed and now Microsoft needs a new flagship title. Microsoft is probably pushing for a September release which was the same as Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. "Milk" titles as I call them. I might as well prepare for the onslaught of Gears of War chip bags and soda cans and bottles. Or it could be something else causing this delay that's been plaguing this series since Gears 1. GLITCHES.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: Behind the Game

CyberConnect2 has decided to give us an inside look into the making of this game. I guess they are going to release these diaries to tide us over until the game's release. There are alot of talented people that work in that studio. I wouldn't mind working there one day. They have alot of passion! The first video is about the fans and the second video is about the art.

Left 4 Dead's "The Sacrfice" DLC Trailer

The Sacrifice will be available next Tuesday (Oct 5.) for 560 Microsoft Points and free to PC and MAC users. The DLC is for both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. I'll get it but I won't be playing it anytime soon. I'll be too busy playing NBA 2K11 so let me know how it is!

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 Trailer w/ Subtitles

Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC Trailer

Okay. Red Dead Redemption is a good game. I don't mind the zombies but seriously I think I've had enough. Zombieland, Left 4 Dead, Nazi zombies, High School of the Dead, Dead Rising, etc. I'm full.
