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.

Capcom cancels the Blood Swimming Pool event for the launch of Resident Evil Revelations

23 May

We were utterly excited for the upcoming Capcom‘s event of this weekend, a huge blood-filled swimming pool party to celebrate the launch of Resident Evil Revelations for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

Unfortunately Capcom announced today that the bloody event has been cancelled due to the tragic events of yesterday, here in London.

Here’s the email send by a spokesman of Capcom to all the ticket owners (including us):

“Due to the tragic incident in Woolwich yesterday, Capcom has decided to cancel all dates of the Blood Swimming Pool event.

Thank you for your understanding.”

It’s a real shame, because the event sounded quite good, but we also understand the concerns of Capcom, hosting such gory party (they had promised floating body parts in the pool) right after a real-life tragedy. So, it’s kinda fine. We just hope the marketing section will find something else to serve some fandriven enjoyment.

If you don’t know what happened yesterday in Woolwich check the news, we’re just a video games blog.

Resident Evil Revelations’ launch event in London will feature a blood-filled swimming pool

You already know that Capcom marketing guys are pretty insane (let’s say completely bonkers). We know it from the previous event for the launch of Resident Evil 6 that featured a fake (but incredibly real-looking) human meat market (pictured below).

But that wasn’t enough…so, what about a blood-filled swimming pool with torso floats, intestines as lane markers, and all kinds of nasty and rotten objects floating in the water including bloody bandages, eyeballs, tendrils and blood clots? Disgusting? Good, because that’s exactly what is going to happen in London next weekend, at the official RE: Revelations launch event.

Capcom is promising big time to all the Resident Evil event attendants, warning fans to expect a ”shocking, gory and an incredibly disturbing experience – the perfect way to show that survival horror is back with a bang for Resident Evil Revelations”.

Interested? Better be quick because only 200 free tickets will be available here on May 20th (from 9.00am). While waiting to can kill some time zombies with the Resident Evil Revelation demo, already available on Xbox 360 and Wii U (PlayStation 3 owners have to wait till tomorrow)

 

Not again! Poor 3DS…

1 Mar

Yes, it happened AGAIN! Another spelling mistake on a 3DS game cover. This time is from the Northamerican version of Nartuo Naruto: Powerful Shippuden

This is what Namco Bandai said regarding this awkward misprinting:

“NAMCO BANDAI is aware of the labeling error for Naruto Powerful Shippuden. The spelling will be corrected for additional pressings of the game and we are currently working on an online solution to provide a printable replacement label for all our customers who would like to replace their box covers.”

But, why we said again? Because all this already happened to another 3DS game one year ago: Resident Evil: Revelaitons Revelations!
