Street Fighter V’s Next DLC Character is Kolin

thegeekdojo.net

Kolin is otherwise known as Gill’s personal assistant from Street Fighter 3. She has ice based powers and quite a few combos, similar to Karin. Channeling straight from the Capcom Unity blog:

“After working in the shadows for Gill and the secret Illuminati organization, Kolin makes her Street Fighter V debut. First appearing in Street Fighter III, Kolin works behind the scenes in order to fulfill the Prophecy of Miraha and stop any who dare stand in Gill’s way. She is typically calm and collected, but can suddenly fly into a rage when anybody threatens Gill and his plans. Spoiler-alert, she resurrects Nash and uses him as a pawn too, showing she will do anything to achieve her goals.”

Kolin will be available February 28th. Check out her reveal trailer below featuring a new song from hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco.

Check out the Capcom Unity blog for all the extra details, such as fighting style, v-trigger, v-skill, and costumes for Kolin.

My Top 5 Video Games of 2016

Another year down, more video games to countdown. There was plenty to play in the year of 2016, but unfortunately I cannot play them all. Here are 5 of my most definite favorites though. Lets start with some honorable mentions:

Street Fighter V: Street Fighter V just missed the cut because it got off to a rough start. It got pushed out to the public a bit early and ultimately was an unfinished product. Capcom has been working hard to fix some of the issues with it and its now shaping up to be a pretty great game. The future of Street Fighter V is looking bright.

Dark Souls 3: I’ve never been that big of a fan of this series, but I was able to have quite a bit of fun with DS3. It wont make me like the Souls games over Bloodborne though. Still hoping a sequel will be made.

And the FINAL honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is a fantastic game, but it left more to be desired from me. We do know that Square-Enix has future DLC plans for the game, which is exciting.

Now for the Top 5: Continue reading

Capcom Details the Big June Update for Street Fighter V

xOIN7Xs.jpg

June looks to be a pretty big month for Street Fighter V. The long awaited story mode “A Shadow Falls,” drops this month as well as the next DLC chracter, Ibuki.

“A Shadow Falls” will be a 3 to 4 hour story. It will be 5 chapters long and will drop at the end of this month. The story takes place between Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV. Players will be able to witness all events that took place between those two games.

Plot description:

“A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. Seven “Black Moons” are deployed by Shadaloo, granting M. Bison unimaginable power and enveloping the earth in total darkness. Seeing the moons mysteriously appear in the sky, Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li embark on an epic journey around the world to retrieve fragment pieces that are the key to stopping the “Black Moons” before it’s too late. Along the way, they encounter the rest of the World Warriors, each of whom have their own agendas and motivations in mind. The final battle between good and evil begins now… who will RISE UP?

Another bit of cool news is that all six DLC characters will be fully playable in story mode. Balrog, Urien, and Juri’s story mode will be available to play before their actual release later this year. This will give you a preview of the upcoming characters so you can get a feel for their play styles.

The Zenny shop will not be put into the game. Transactions will be handled through the PlayStation Store and Steam. Alex and Guile will no longer be free to play when the update goes live. Here is a breakdown of how much everything will cost with in-game and real currency:

As you can see, premium costumes are also included in the chart. You will finally be able to get that “Hot Ryu” skin you missed out on, because you didn’t get the game from GameStop.

It makes the Street Fighter fan base feel a little bit more at ease now that Capcom has addressed the communication problem. A lot of people, including myself were a bit ticked off that Capcom waited until the end of last moth to tell us Ibuki was getting delayed. Lets hope Capcom can keep us this informed as time goes by.

Check out Capcom Unity for more information on the June update.

We all knew Guile would be dropping by the end of the month of April, but didn’t know when. As of tonight, we have a concrete release date.

Earlier tonight on Capcom Pro talk with Mike Ross, Peter “Combofiend” Rosas was the featured guest. After a heated first to 3 match between the two, Combofiend shared with the world the official release date of the “Family Man.” Guile will be available to play in Street Fighter V, this Thursday, April 28th at 7pm Pacific time.

Guile will be looking to shake things up as he is the first true defensive and full charge based character. Check out his reveal trailer below.

Resident Evil 2 is to be Remade Not Remastered

eaxr7u3ffq9isrr220y8

Capcom stated that Resident Evil 2 is going to be a “from the ground up remake,” not a remaster. This is some pretty exciting news considering all of the remastered video games that come out regularly.

Capcom’s investor report stated RE2 would be remastered, but Stuart Turner, Capcom UK’s senior marketing director, said it was a “mistranslation.”

Capcom originally confirmed the remake is August. Considering that I have only played a little bit of Resident Evil 2, this is pretty exciting knowing that I can experience the entire game in a remastered format.
