Ninja Gaiden Sigma Demo Available On PSNetwork

Thursday, April 26th, 2007


The title pretty much sums it up folks. Basically if you’ve got a PS3 in the room, for the love of god turn it on and start downloading Ninja Gaiden Sigma and enjoy the 1080p / 60fps goodness. But don’t close your browser when you do it, you might miss some good stuff if you do.

Originally, we were led to believe that the demo was supposed to arrive on the 27th, so this is a pleasant surprise. And this isn’t your typical “plop down onto a level and fight” demo, expect to be able to unlock weapons and other additional content within the demo.

Warhawk Air Combat Gameplay Videos A-Plenty

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Sony released some new videos today showing what players can expect when they take to the skies in Warhawk. The videos show off some pretty slick moves you can do in the warhawk such as cloaking, hovering over enemies, and some good old fashioned dog fighting.

One thing I want you guys to notice in these videos is the speed the game runs at. I did not see any slowdown at all while the warhawk is speeding through the level, twisting and turning. And that’s always a good thing.

More videos follow after the break


Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD’s Enhanced Graphics

Friday, April 20th, 2007


A few weeks ago, Capcom announced they are going to be bringing Super Street Fighter II Turbo to the XBLA and PSN with new artwork and a promise to bring the franchise into the HD era (1080p anyone?)

As you can see from the picture above from Racketboy, the attention to detail in the enhanced version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo is simply amazing. When the game is released later this year, no more will the word “sprite” be used for this series.

I personally embrace this much needed upgrade. I’m all for nostalgia, but there is nothing much left to do in the 2D fighting market. The only logical thing now to do is give 2D fighters the complete graphical upgrade they so rightly deserve, not a game with 80 characters who’s character models are obviously outdated. If Capcom pulls off this transition, I forsee a rebirth of the “2D” fighting series.

SNK Brings NeoGeo Games To Wii VC & Other Networks?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007


The possibility of NeoGeo games coming to the Wii’s virtual console has been reported here before, but today SNK sends out the official word that they have signed a deal with Nintendo to bring NeoGeo games to the virtual console.

But that’s not all. In an interview with IGN, President of SNK Playmore USA Ben Herman mentions the Wii virtual console isn’t the only place SNK is hoping NeoGeo games can be found.

“We will have content on Xbox Live Arcade as well, and we are talking with Sony about getting some of our properties onto their new Home network.”

Herman goes on to say SNK’s games are also going to be converted to take advantage of HDTV sets.

“We have things right now that we’re developing for the arcade that are in full high-def,” he claims. “Obviously that opens the possibility of bringing HD to the appropriate next-generation systems as well.”

One thing Herman did not clarify was the price points. He said for the Wii virtual console, gamers should expect a price point a little bit above SNES games ($8).

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo ‘Puzzle Buster’ Video

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

Yesterday, Capcom announced Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo was going to be re-created and made available for the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network as a digital download. Capcom also released a video that shows off how the upgraded graphics will look.

As you can see, the gems look a hell of a lot shinier than in the original game, and also the special effects such as the gems crumbling and the attacks of the characters look a lot sharper too. All in all, this was one game that needed a major upgrade and I for one will be welcoming this game with open arms when it’s released.

Capcom Announces Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo And More For XBLA & PS Network

Friday, April 13th, 2007


Today, Capcom has announced 4 games will be making their way to both the Xbox Live Arcade as well as the PS Network. The games are:

  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Rocketmen: Axis of Evil
  • Talisman

Director of Capcom brand marketing Jack Symon describes the reasoning behind bringing these games to downloadable form:

“Following in the footsteps of our highly successful Street Fighter II Xbox Live title, these projects represent the beginnings of a much larger ‘Capcom Digital Initiative’ focused around the limitless creativity and community development that can happen with downloadable content models.

This is great news for Capcom fans and hopefully will be a wake up call to bring the rest of their old-school catalog to become available for digital downloading. SNK would make a killing if they followed in Capcom’s footsteps. One can only dream.
