A very cool t-shirt and official apologies from Capcom after cancelling the Blood Swimming Pool event

31 May

In the beginning we were utterly excited for the Blood Swimming Pool Event organized by Capcom to celebrate, with few lucky people, the launch of Resident Evil Revelations on home consoles.

Then, a few days later, we got a bit of disappointment by the cancelling of the event itself due to the tragic happenings of Woolwich, even because we achieved to get some tickets to the event.

But you know, Capcom is good, and the PR team decided to send to all the ticket-holders some free stuff, trying to beg our forgiveness. Today we got the parcel in our mail box, here’s what was inside.

Yep, it’s not super cool merchandise, but we still appreciate the apologies. This is how you behave if you want to be one of the top rated software houses in the world (no EA, you’re not included in the list). But that’s not all, the main gift is shown below.

If you were expecting a sequel for Okami, we got bad news

13 May

okami merchandise

Last month, from the official Okami Twitter account, Capcom said they got some upcoming big news about the series. All the teasing was made in occasion of the Japanese Golden Week which is a period of multiple consecutive holidays in Japan. Here’s the tweet:

Yes, we know that you probably can’t speak Japanese, so here’s a translation:

“Hello, this is Okami news. Sorry if I’ve been kind of out of touch lately, but I have the feeling we’ll be able to drop a fresh announcement like WHAM! around the beginning of Golden Week, so please look forward to it. Right now we’re on track with preparations.”

Obviously everyone got super excited, expecting some big announcement about, let’s say, Okami 2.

No way…today Capcom announced some Okami merchandise, and just for the Japanese market.

This is the worst way to start a new week.

Ryo Hazuki statue by First 4 Figures is amazingly awesome

30 Apr

Ryo Hazuki First 4 Figures SEGA shenmue

Any Shenmue fan out there? We guess so! So here’s a good news!

Nop, it’s not about any project/hope/fundraising regarding Shenmue 3, but it’s still good to see that SEGA gave the license to First 4 Figures to create the most amazing and well-made statue of Ryo Hazuki you’ve ever seen!

Ryo Hazuki First 4 Figures SEGA shenmue

First 4 Figures presents Ryo Hazuki, the protagonist of the cult-classic Dreamcast game Shenmue, as the first entry in an entirely new line of SEGA All-Star statues which will look at a range of legendary characters from SEGA’s past and present. Standing at 1/6 scale, and 12 inches in height, cast in high quality polystone and painted by hand, he is stood in a ‘ready for action’ stance, ready to take on any challengers as he walks the streets of Yokosuka.

The statue look AMAZING and incredibly detailed. Look the below close-up to the blue-jeans…simply staggering!

The figurine is highly limited to 350 pieces worldwide (even if a previous post by F4F said 750, so we’re not really sure about this). It comes in deluxe full color packaging, hand numbered base (that is the legendary Phoenix Mirror in case you didn’t notice), and includes an authenticity card which allows you to purchase the same number of the model next in the SEGA All-Stars series.

So what’s the price tag? Well…this beauty will cost you $169.99

Yep, it is not cheap, but if you’re already in “shut up and take my money” mood, here’s the link to pre-order it!

SEGA launches Segakawaii

8 Apr

segakawaii

After the incredibly cool series of laptop themed on all the SEGA’s consoles presented few months ago, now the Japanese ex-hardware-but-still-software house launches a new “project” called Segakawaii (you know, kawaii in Japanese means “cute”).

Basically Segakaii is a series of accessories themed on SEGA goods, like consoles and pads. For example on April 25 will be available (obviously only in Japan) the first item…a giant Dreamcast pad backpack! Later on will be released other stuff, including a very cool Dreamcast t-shirt!

SEGA partners with Enterbrain to release some cool laptops

12 Feb

sega pc

We all want a new SEGA console, maybe a Dreamcast 2, but you know, this is never gonna happen.

Instead of realize our dreams (and most likely bankrupt for real this time), SEGA decided to collaborate with Enterbrain, a Japanese PC retailer, to create a new laptop series. These PCs, called SEGA NOTE PC, will feature a choice of four lid finishes: SEGA blue, SEGA Mega Drive, SEGA Saturn and SEGA Dreamcast; and they all look pretty awesome.

These SEGA NOTE PCs will be available in four different models, from entry-level to top-level, and the most powerful (and expensive) will feature all the four retro-covers. Here are the specs and prices.

Now the bad news (beside the not-so-cheap price range from ¥99,750/£682/€793/$1068 to ¥194,250/£1329/€1546/$2080). These PCs will be produced only if  a certain number (yup, we know it’s a little vague) of preorder is  reached. Uh, did we mention that an European/Northamerican release is never ever gonna happen?

If you’re still interested (and if you the mysterious Japanese language), check out the official site.

We know you want this Fez Game Village set on LEGO CUUSOO

4 Feb

Wait wait wait…what the hell is LEGO CUUSOO (I really want to punch in the face who chose that idiotic name)? Well, it’s a site where you can share LEGO set concepts you’d like the whole world to enjoy and aim for their eventual release as real products. Sounds amazing, isn’t it? Wait to see this!

FEZ Village Set LEGO CUUSOO

Yep, this is a brick-by-brick duplicate model of the Fez village as seen on Polytron‘s game (yes, we know what you are thinking…Phil Fish is a cock, we agree), and it looks absolutely AMAZING!

It was made by 3rdfoundatio, that said:

“When I built this model I posted it on reddit and the Fez Homepage. I then put it on the shelf for display. Over the next few days I discovered it was featured on the Fez homepage, MTV’s blog, and Indie Game the Movie’s website. After many requests for the model from comments on those sites I added it to Cuusoo. Thanks to everyone who have enjoyed it and asked for it as a model. Hopefully it will get the 10,000 supporters needed for Lego to review it. My flickr image of the model has over 8,000 views so there certainly a possibility of this happening.”

Well, if you’d kill for one of this, support the project here. They need 10k supporters. Let’s do your part!

SEGA Dreamcast & SEGA Mega Drive bags

1 Feb

Everyone loves SEGA (apart for not making Shenmue 3) and everyone have loved its consoles. Especially if we are talking about Mega Drive (or Genesis if you live in the US) and Dreamcast. So if you agree with this, you’ll probably love these two officially licensed bags from Insert Coin Clothing.

They’re pretty amazing, aren’t they? They’re made out of leather (I think not real one) and really well printed. And they can be all yours for just £30/£35 (or €39/€45$42/$49 if you prefer). Well, it’s not a bargain, but still, they’re awesome and perfect for revive those beautiful SEGA consoles.

Insert Coin is not paying us for advertise its products, we genuinely love this stuff (we got the Dreamcast one).

If you like them as we do, and you think it’s time to get your geek on (uh, this motto really sucks) you can buy them here (DC) and here (MD) as they ship worldwide.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to SEGA licensing, the Dreamcast logo/bag colour received will be based upon your delivery address: Blue – PAL Regions, Red – North America, Orange – Japan. (and this kinda sucks, we know…)
