Directed by Lee Hardcastle, this impressive short claymation clip features Resident Evil’s rockie cop Leon S. Kennedy as he takes out a drug cartel during a drug bust gone wrong. Yeah, this confirms it; Leon was a total Badass, even before he killed zombies!
I need to explain something. when you make a female version of a character, you need to make it female. Shape, look, style and design. What you do not do is add female hands, legs and a miniskirt made from the jacket the character. All I ask is if you going with sexy legs add hair and a sleeveless version of HUNK’s outfit.
In case you cannot tell, I think the first paid character DLC for Resident Evil: Revelations HD is stupid. The first DLC pack features a character called Lady Hunk who is HUNK with lady legs and hands and a mutated Rachel. The 2 characters will cost $2.99 or 240 MSP. Also announced are weapon upgrade packs for Jill, Jessica and Parker at .99 or 80 MSP and Raid Mode specific weapon upgrade packs for 160 MSP or 1.99. If you go beyond the break you can see why I am confused by Lady Hunk.
Resident Evil: Revelations will be released by Capcom on May 21st in North America, May 23rd in Japan and Australia and May 24th in Europe for the Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
Go beyond the break for whatever it is I saw.
Announced last week during Nintendo Direct Japan, Sega is bringing the Yakuza 1&2 HD Collection to the Wii U.
The set will feature the first 2 Yakuza games with all the upgrades done on the PS3 version along with the ability to play the game on the gamepad and see the maps on the gamepad. The Yakuza games have been released overseas as well so a North America or Europe release might be possible.
Yakuza 1&2 HD collection will be released by Sega in Japan for the Wii U in 2013. No international release has been announced. The PS3 version is available now in Japan.

Have a look at the new chapter of
Ragna and Jin‘s eternal conflict.
It’s always a pleasure to talk about action games. Look, for instance, on the daring leap that Santa Monica has taken with this game. A multiplayer mode in a franchise with five big entries focused solely on single-player. Sure: it’s Sony. They’ve got money.
Even so, it doesn’t hurt to play it safe, specially when you’ve got a potential God of War 4 or Descent or… Betrayal HD.
Nostalgia plays a big role when you decide to play this game again. While we are quite far from the oft-requested HD remake, some people would be satisfied to have slight improvements such as upscaled graphics and pristine sound quality.
But we are talking about Square Enix, so you can bet there is a catch. Prepare for some tradeoffs (or rather, sacrifices) if you’re willing to pay 12 gil, specially if you really want to play the same game from 1997.
For those who do not know, Final Fantasy VIII had a PC release back in the early millenium and now it’s back.
Famitsu reports the PC rerelease of Final Fantasy VIII will feature high resolution graphics and the Chocobo World Mini-RPG which was only accessible with the pocket station.
The game will be available for the PC in Japan this year. There is no announcement of a North American or European release.
Go beyond the break for a slight handful of screenshots.

Too much Nintendo, Too little time. In previous Nintendo Directs Iwata stated that this year is The Year of Luigi and one of the items announced was New Super Luigi U. Now we have release info and pricing.

The game will be available digitally on June 20th in North America for $19.99 and in Europe for an unknown price with a physical release coming July 26th in Europe and August 20th in North America for $29.99.

In what could be the biggest shake up in terms of E3 history, Nintendo announced that they have teamed up with Best Buy to bring select E3 demos to Best Buy stores in North America and Canada this June.
The stores will feature demos of both Wii U and 3DS games. Nintendo did something like this for the Wii U in December of last year and I was able to try the system then which influenced me to buy a basic system and a copy of Zombi U. This year Nintendo has forgone E3 and is instead bringing everything to the public with Nintendo Direct and now this. Nintendo seems more interested in listening to the response of the people than trying to make money and although they lost money this year it seems like the old days of the gamer comes first might be coming back.
E3 will be June 11-13. Xbox will have it’s conference on June 10th along with Sony. Nintendo stated they will have a Nintendo Direct around this time.
Good news for PC gamers! Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to the platform. This was first revealed by director Hideo Kojima during his podcast and later confirmed by Jean Pierre Kellams, creative producer at Platinum Games, via Twitter.
Dontnod Entertainment’s Remember Me has received a new story trailer, along with some concept art.
Today, Nintendo announced on Nintendo Direct that the latest Sonic game Sonic: Lost World will be exclusive to Nintendo Consoles.
this is good news to people like me since if you ever played a Sonic game in the last 10 years the trend seems to be the best games are on Nintendo Consoles. Sonic Advance, Sonic: Dark BrotherHood, Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations 3DS version, Sonic Rush. Anything cross platform: Sonic Unleashed, Sonic 2006, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Generations seems to be way below quality. Let’s hope this keeps the trend of great Sonic games on Nintendo when the game is released.
Capcom has released a new facebook app that allows you to put your face on the Resident Evil Revelations boxart, and lets you print it for your game case.
The app was just released on facebook.

Can it get any cheaper than this?
According to several Youtube Users, Nintendo has started to enforce their copyright on Youtube Videos.

Time Sinks. They exist as a way to distract you from the many problems or things you need to figure out during the day. They range from crossword puzzles, sudoku, repairing things and in my case cooking. Games themselves are time sinks but the cheaper they get the more people buy them. In the terms of social games the most popular are games where you run a town, park or in the case of Publisher’s Dream: A video game company.
