For years, we’ve seen Guile’s hair when it’s up. The iconic character has even been used to sell hair gel in Japan. But what happens when he lets it down?

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Is Deleting Some Players' PC Save Files

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Is Deleting Some Players' PC Save Files

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne came out on PC last week, and while for many it was a hassle-free experience, some older players logged on to unwittingly delete their old save data.

The issue appears to be affecting those who haven’t logged into the game for a while, leading to speculation it could be related to an older save not liking the newer version of the game.

Whatever the cause, the...

Capcom Cup Sucked

Capcom Cup Sucked

Last year, it was my belief that Capcom Cup was saved by the incredible performances of its finalists, a group of 32 talented Street Fighter V competitors whose skills outshone the myriad issues I had with the event’s organization and scheduling. But not even the incredible stories of Capcom Cup 2019 could wipe away the ways in which the company botched the most important Street Fighter...

Everyone, Say Hi To Resident Evil's Martin Sandwich

Everyone, Say Hi To Resident Evil's Martin Sandwich

This is Martin. He’s “a skilled engineer and mechanic” who can “create traps to slow down or stun enemies” in Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil Resistance . So if you ever play the game and see a trap slow down or stun an enemy, make sure you remember to thank Martin. Martin Sandwich.

Let's Compare Resident Evil 3 Remake With The Original Graphics

Let's Compare Resident Evil 3 Remake With The Original Graphics

As reported yesterday, Resident Evil 3 is getting a remake. The original game came out in 1999. Since then, lots has changed! Just look at the leap in graphics.

Compared to Resident Evil 2 Remake, which featured very new faces, Resident Evil 3 Remake seems to do a decent job of capturing the spirit of the original character’s physical features.

You gotta wonder what Resident Evil remakes will...

Resident Evil 5 And 6 Run Just Fine On Switch

Resident Evil 5 And 6 Run Just Fine On Switch

Resident Evil 5 and 6 are not as fondly remembered as other games in the series, but I’ve always been a bit of an apologist for them. I was intrigued when Capcom announced they were coming to the Switch. Would the console be a good place to play these less loved Resident Evil games? The answer is kind of, if you don’t mind some graphical downgrades and performance issues.

Both games target...

Devil May Cry 2 Is Out On The Switch So Here's The Deal

Devil May Cry games kick ass. The stylish and over-the-top antics of demon hunter Dante and his cohorts helped define the action game genre. This year’s Devil May Cry 5 made everything sleeker, sexier, and energetic. Dante’s had great games over the years, but there’s one game that doesn’t shine. Devil May Cry 2, whose Nintendo Switch port releases today, remains one of the most infamous...

Street Fighter Champion Gives Up Thousands In Protest Of Japanese Bureaucracy

This past weekend, a legendary Street Fighter player placed first in what was perhaps the most stacked Street Fighter V tournament ever, but he will only be taking home a fraction of his prize money. That’s due to Japan’s heavily restrictive laws on competitive gaming and his own personal principles.

Yusuke Momochi is one of the greatest fighting game players of all time, with major victories...

Straight speedruns and feats of skill are always impressive, but sometimes it’s just as impressive to see a game completed where someone has found an interesting way to make things hard for themselves.

That’s what Manekimoney has done here with a Resident Evil 4 playthrough that was completed with 0% weapon accuracy. That means using the knife, of course, but also a range of weapons that deal...

Some Of Monster Hunter World's New Gear Sure Is Ugly

Monster Hunter World’s latest expansion, Iceborne, is a massive addition to the base game. It adds tons of new monsters and brings back old favorites. That also means new armor, and while plenty of it looks badass, a few pieces are bafflingly terrible.

Iceborne offers a lot of good armor sets. The Master Rank Tobi-Kadachi set is fabulous, and armor from from returning monsters like Glavenus...
