After a brief revival on current generation platforms, both Marvel Ultimate Alliance games have been sent to the Soul Stone dimension. Activision has delisted both Marvel Ultimate Alliance games from the Xbox Live Marketplace, PSN, and Steam. Although the publisher has not released a statement, this is likely because of an expiring licensing agreement since both games were re-released exactly two years ago today. Marvel Ultimate Alliance originally came out in 2006 and its sequel was released in 2009. Both were remastered for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016. Although “remaster” maybe be a bit of a stretch since a multitude of issues plagued their relaunch. Rampant glitches, missing achievements, horrendous optimization on PC, and more made these games hard to swallow. This was especially jarring given the shocking $40 price point per title (both were bundled together for $60). Patches (along with free DLC) eventually fixed some of the issues but the damage had already … [Read more...] about Marvel Ultimate Alliance Games Taken Off Digital Marketplaces

A bunch of Sega and Capcom games are available as part of a new Humble Bundle — including some total classics, highly recommended hits and even some very good coupons. For PlayStation console owners, this is a serious gift, one that’s both cheap and for a good cause. All of the Sega and Capcom games included in the various pay tiers are for PlayStation platforms, with even PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita seeing some representation in here. Games on those systems include Sonic Generations, a truly excellent Sonic game that mashes up the series’ best features; Crazy Taxi, which ... hello, it’sCrazy Taxi, it’s awesome; and the cult favorite, you-might-have-missed-it shooter Binary Domain, directed by the creator of the Yakuza franchise. Capcom fills out most of the PlayStation 4 content, and that’s great for anyone who’s yet to get into series like Resident Evil or Mega Man. The remastered versions of the original Resident Evil and Resident … [Read more...] about Sega and Capcom classics star in a seriously good Humble Bundle
File photo: The first recovered Atari cartridge and packaging recovered from the old Alamogordo landfill are shown in Alamogordo, New Mexico, April 26, 2014. (REUTERS/Mark Wilson) Some of the best video games ever were made ages ago. Super Metroid, Planescape: Torment, Deus Ex, and hundreds of other amazing games were produced for platforms that don't really exist anymore. They were made for systems that used cartridges and PCs that ran Windows 95. Some have aged well and some haven't, but they've all made their mark on video game history. Unfortunately, you can't easily play them in their original forms on current systems. Consoles stopped using cartridges many moons ago, and what worked on Pentium-era Windows 95 PCs baffle Core i7-era Windows 10 machines. Add an unsettling trend of dismissiveness in archiving classic games and you run into the very real risk that some of the best video games ever will some day be lost, or remain just out of reach. Fortunately, you have … [Read more...] about How to play retro video games
Every year before E3, we talk about the games we expect to see, along with the ones that we hope we’ll get to take another look at. These include the obvious ones, like big games announced at the previous year’s conference. But they’re also the hypothetical projects, the titles that we’ve neither seen nor heard from in years — perhaps since they were first announced. Some games have gone quiet much longer than others, though. We’ve gathered up some of the most notable “missing in action” games that we'd love to see make a grand reappearance at this year’s big show. Below, we’ll offer an update on each game, plus our assessment of the likelihood of the project resurfacing at E3 2017 (on a scale of 1 to 10). Follow along and reminisce about some of the industry’s most elusive games. (A quick note: We weighed in on many of these titles last year. In those cases, we’ve generally lifted the original text, with some … [Read more...] about Will these 12 games miss E3 this year?
How's your memory? Excellent. Then you'll no doubt remember all about the reveal trailer released by Capcom for its newly announced futuristic fancy Remember Me. Well forget all about that because now there's a gameplay demo and it makes the memory-sacking action look much, much more interesting. Seriously. Watch it: So where the earlier trailer had us drawing comparisons with the likes of Uncharted and Deus Ex, now we've seen amnesiac Joanna Dark-a-like protagonist Nilin complete an objective we're inclined to add Watch Dogs, Hitman, Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed and Ghost Trick to that list of familiar gaming shades. The mind-burgling segment looks pretty neat and should provide some ingenious ways to eliminate targets. That said, it's not clear from this small glimpse if kills will be reliant on simply figuring out the single correct sequence of variables through trial-and-error, or if players will be able to execute assassinations through a variety of different creative … [Read more...] about Remember Me gameplay demo makes Capcom’s new IP look way more interesting
