This year they are having eight main tournament games, seven of which have been already been announced.

Evo 2013 is being held July 12-14 at the Paris Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

Now if only I had the time to go to Telford and then on to California. And also was good at Street Fighter.
With all the hype building up for the upcoming releases this year Capcom decided that it was time to give fans what they really wanted out of a special edition and it’s only for a low low price of $1,300 dollars! What would cost $1,300 though? A full sized replica of a resident evil zombie? A life time supply of green herbs? No neither of those, what you get is a leather jacket and some phone cases. Yup, that’s right if you decide to buy the special edition of Resident Evil 6, which is only going to be sold in Japan, you get a replica of Leon’s jacket and four phone cases with the characters too. Don’t worry of course you will get the game, where else do you think the rest of your $1,100 dollars are going? It seems really overpriced if you ask me, comparing to the special editions of games like Skyrim or Uncharted where the price never went anywhere near hitting the four digits and they were nice special editions too! That jacket better stop bullets! Or save me from a zombie apocalypse!
For those of you who love killing zombies, are a fan of the horror genre, or remember the cheesy live action scenes of Resident Evil 1, be prepared! The trailer for Resident Evil Six has arrived and it is nothing less than epic. The question is what type of game will Resident Evil 6 be; a horror survival or a third person action game?
This week portable gaming has had more than the usual amount of news so we thought we would give you an update..
-Nekkei Trendy, a technology website for Japan, that the “Lite” model of the 3DS will be released in Japan during the first half of 2012 as many of you probably already predicted when they announced the 3DS in the first place. Hopefully this new model will have the Circle Pad Pro built into it.
- Also due to the low sales of the PS Vita shops in Japan (A little above 40,000 units, behind the 3DS, the PS3, the original PSP and even the Wii!) have been lowering their prices unofficially just to sell them from their stores, this has been happening more often with the 3G models than the regular models.
-A new Monster Hunter game has been rumored over in japan, this could be a spin off in the series or a port of the fourth title in the series which as it stands now is a 3DS exclusive.
-Capcom has confirmed that 3DS owners will be able to download the demo for Resident Evil Revelations later on this year.
-The 3DS has sold over 4 million units at this point in time, Nintendo states that this is more than the Wii sold in it’s first nine months. The regular Nintendo DS has sold over 10 Million.
Yesterday we went over some of the early releases for 2012 gaming year; Here are a few more.
In an interview with Game Informer a couple months ago Capcom said that with the upcoming game Dragon’s Dogma they would hopefully start appealing towards the western “Skyrim” audience as lately they have not had a big impact on the western side of the world. In the game the main character of the story, which is who ever you make them to be, has their heart ripped out by a dragon and is told that he/she is the chosen one and through this event somehow your character lives to become the chosen one. This leads to the main plot of the game where you hunt down the dragon that stole your heart. Not captivated yet? Check out the screens below! Continue Reading
The Resident Evil franchise has been one that has held its fan base over the years. With the first Resident Evil game in 1996, Capcom became the pioneers of the survival-horror genre. Stellar graphics for the time, a very unqiue story line, combined with smooth gameplay helped build a game that pulled the player in, and Capcom didn’t stop there. With the success of Resident Evil, Capcom continued to build on the story that started as the foundation for this amazing game, Resident Evil 5 being the latest addition to the franchise. In December, Capcom will be adding yet another game to the survival-horror collection it has created, however, this game will be unlike any Resident Evil game we have seen in the past.
Resident Evil – Operation Raccoon City takes us back to 1998, a time between Resident Evil 2 and 3. Instead of rehashing the story from the already known perspective, Capcom and Slant Six Games have decided to retell the story from the Umbrella Security Services point of view. Yes, that’s right, in Operation Raccoon City you are thrown straight into the mix as one of Umbrella Cooperation’s very own.
