Capcom denies alienating DR2 PS3 gamers

The real mystery here is why they didn't make a PS3 version of DR1. And yet they made a Wii version...

@topkatt: I was being sarcastic, but hey, since you're asking, I mean that not buying the PS3 version of DR2 based on the fact that Case 0 and case West may not be released on PSN is completely misguided.

Because Capcom is perfectly right - this DLC is just bonus content, and that content is pointless for those who didn't play the 1st game, and, having played Case 0, I can guarantee you that it absolutely won't have any impact on the DR2 experience of the people who didn't have the chance to play this prologue / teaser / demo.

Let's imagine for a second that konami does the same thing with MGS rising - release a paid demo on PSN that links the events of MGS4 with the events of Rising. As a xbox owner who never got the chance to play MGS4, why would I feel alienated?
If Bioware releases a PSN exclusive DLC that explains the mass effect 1 plot for PS3 gamers, why should I be pissed?

PS3 fanboys, your plan is FLAWLESS: boycotting Capcom games will make a HUGE difference, and is the SMART thing to do.

DmC: Devil May Cry

I wouldn't call myself a DMC fan, but I played all 4 games - IMO, Bayonetta stole DMC's mojo, and I'm more interested in Bayonetta 2. And Asura's wrath looks more exciting ATM.

A reboot isn't a bad idea, since DMC4 was a solid but uninspired game (RE 0-style), but saying you're rebooting because you want to sell more copies is sending the wrong message to your audience... DMC fans shouldn't worry: Dante's original haircut will probably be available as DLC.

Inafune: Japan "five years behind" West

ParanoidZombie

8 years ago

Inafune seems desperate to justify his less than successful attempts at "westernizing" Capcom's recent games. It's true that the JRPG genre seems a bit behind this gen (even though resonance of fate and demon's souls are stellar and innovative games), but other than that their games are as good as they always been - looking forward to playing DR2, Vanquish and Deadly Premonition.

Setting Sun?

"still has a lot to learn".

Yeah, right. Japanese designers single-handedly justified the existence of Kinect in the span of a 1-hour keynote, and yet they have a lot to learn from the authors of kinect adventures, COD 27, GTA 12 and stuff.

New Team Ninja out to prove itself

@Machetazo: NG2 is more divisive, but I liked it better than NGB. I tried to get back to NG1 after completing NG2, and it hasn't aged that well- it still looks great, but the fighting is very dull by comparison, it feels very slow. Anyway, opinions.

The real issue IMO is: what does Tecmo/Koei want to do with the franchise? NG3 will be some kind of a reboot since Itakagi's gone... Will they make a game for NG's fans, or for the indifferent who think the game should be an open world co-op midly challenging button-masher?

Gothic 4 is supposed to be out very soon, maybe they don't want the competition.

I just hope than TW2 will be better than the FIRST... ;)

The game will ship at 25, hopefully. If it does, instabuy. I want to support this game.

Capcom shows Dead Rising 2: Case West

ParanoidZombie

8 years ago

This will hopefully come to PSN if the PS3 version of DR2 sells well.
In the meantime, saying that the ps3 and PC versions are incomplete without case 0 is BS. I enjoyed case 0, but it's vanilla DR, it's just a tease + a warm-up session for DR2, and it does its job perfectly.

MS: Halo: Reach will outsell COD: Black Ops

ParanoidZombie

Lots of people will buy both - just like lots of people bought Halo3 + COD4, GOW2 + WAW, ODST + MW2. The big loser here should be MOH, it's clearly the inferior game, by all accounts.

Dead Rising prologue breaks records

ParanoidZombie

If there was some sort of "smartest marketing move of the year" award, I would give it to Capcom. Fantastic way to generate interest for DR2 in a busy time of the year, and Case 0's perfect pricing probably means a healthy profit, too.

Dead Rising: Case Zero proves popular

Don't forget that it's a proper XBLA release => there's a free trial version => the "paid demo" point is null and void IMO.

Too bad, it would be perfect for kinect: voice recognition (like in endwar) + waving your hands, that would have been very immersive.

Moore: EA willing to admit it's wrong

ParanoidZombie

8 years ago

I know EA won't do it, but since you're interested in our opinions: stop with the yearly updates of your sports games - take the fight night route with all your franchises, especially tiger woods. Or lower the prices of those games - yearly updates aren't worth 60.

Vanquish demo showdown

ParanoidZombie

just played the demo on x360, absolutely mind-blowing, every other TPS looks dull and sluggish by comparison. Stop over-analyzing everything until all joy is gone, this game shows tremendous potential on both platforms and that's all you need to know.

Capcom aims high with Dead Rising 2

ParanoidZombie

After playing case zero, I realized I'm more of a Frank West fan than a zombie-slaying enthusiast. DR1 has a lot of character / personality, making lots of sequels would kill what I like about the IP.

Dead Rising 2

ParanoidZombie

8 years ago

Bought DR1 on release day, I'm still playing through it from time to time. It's the more intense survival horror I ever played, the best paced sandbox game ever done, and it still manages to make me laugh after 12 playthroughs.The only real flaw IMO is that, like soemeone else said, infinity mode was a missed opportunity.

BTW, the one-save only thing is no longer an issue if you have a memory card / USB key + a hard drive.
