Resident Evil 2 is to be Remade Not Remastered


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.

Street Fighter V Beta Gets a New Playable Update


The SFV beta was updated last night and includes a portion of story mode material as well as a tutorial mode.

The story/tutorial mode takes place way back in the Alpha days when Ryu and Ken were training with Gouken. Ryu and Ken are even sporting their classic Street Fighter Alpha costumes. The best part is that this mode is live right now in the Street Fighter V beta! So go play it right now!

This is a very neat surprise on Capcom’s part. I’m very interested to see what else they might do between now and February. You can check out a video of the story mode below as well.

Mega Man Legends is Coming to PSN


Here is some exciting news. Capcom is finally giving fans what they want and is releasing Mega Man Legends to the PlayStation network store. There are not really any details about how this is finally happening, but I and many other Blue Bomber fans are very excited to say the least.

Mega Man Legends will arrive next week on the September 29th at $9.99, a far cry from the prices you see on eBay, and will be available to play on PS3 and PS Vita. Now I and many can finally play it with out having to pay a ridiculous collectors price! I need to go charge my Vita.

Vega Returns in Street Fighter V


“Let my beauty intoxicate you.”

The Spanish ninja makes his return to the series. Vega is one of the 8 original world warriors and seems deadlier than ever.

Vega looks to play differently, yet the same, this time around. The Flying Barcelona, his signature move, is still part of his move set, but he seems so much more stylish this time around. He is a matador and with his play style in SFV, Capcom seems to have really captured the elegance and grace of a matador with the spins Vega does during his combos. Just because he moves so smoothly, doesn’t mean the Spaniard isn’t just as deadly. He can be seen throwing a barrage of claw slashes during his deadly combos in the video below.

With the latest edition of Vega, that brings the current roster up to 9 characters. It’s to see you back Vega.

Street Fighter V Beta Starts Today [Updated]

thegeekdojo.wordpress.com“Gonna burn some muscle!”

Update: The Street Fighter V beta has been temporarily taken down. The beta launched with issues from the start, with people saying they couldn’t log in at all. 

This really should be to no ones surprise. The game is in fact a beta, so problems are bound to happen. I got to play for 10 glorious minutes before I was kicked out to the start screen for the umpteenth time. Stay tuned to find out when the SFV beta goes back online. 

Original Story: The SFV beta will run for 5 days and it starts tonight! I have read that the beta will go live at 9pm EST. Be sure to check your email for your beta code, if you haven’t already, so you can pre-load the game. Keep in mind that this beta is only testing online capabilities and dlc delivery so there are no extra network capabilities like local play or playing online with friends. This is the first of 3 betas so I’m sure we will get more network capabilities as time goes on. I hope you’re just as excited as  I am. Enjoy the beta because I know I will.

I will also be streaming the beta later this evening so if you’re missing out on the beta, come hangout with me over on my Twitch channel under the Geek Dojo TV tab. It should be some fun times.

New Street Fighter V Mechanics, Stages, Screen Shots, and Video Released Today

Capcom has released a new video about Street Fighter V today and it explains the new V-Gauge and V-Skill mechanic.

According to the latest issue of ShortList.com‘s gaming magazine, as you take damage during a match the V-Gauge fills. Using some of your V-Gauge, you can do special moves like the double fireball Chun-li throws in previous videos.

We’ve also learned about the new V-SKill mechanic. This is more of a defensive mechanic that allows certain characters to parry, deflect projectiles.

Special moves have also gotten a name change. Called Ultras in SFIV, in SFV they are called Critical Arts. These special moves are activated by a full EX gauge and are still the flashy, dynamic camera, multi-hit combo moves that we all know and love.

Last but not least, 2 new stages are now known: China and London’s King Cross Station. King’s Cross Station can be seen in a flurry of beautiful new screen shots after the jump.
