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

14 May

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)

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 will be region free

13 May

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou

Hey shmup nerds, we got a really good news for you all!

After Rising Star Games‘ announcement about their decision to not release any other Cave’s shooter in the west due to poor sales, we all lost hope to play all the upcoming bullet hells from the well-known Japanese software house.

But thing are getting better as Cave itself tweeted this last week:

As usual, we know Japanese language could be a bit tricky, so everything you need to know is that DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for Xbox 360 will be region-free! This is an amazing news, and we’re all glad to Cave to allow us western players to enjoy their upcoming arcade port for the Xbox 360.

Obviously it will be a bit more expensive than a theoretical PAL/NTSC-U version, due to the import status and all the shipping costs, but still at least we got the chance to play it.

DoDonPachi Saidaioujou will be released on May 30 and for now you can pre-order it from Play-Asia or Ami-Ami.

Yep, it sounds quite useless, but c’mon, it’s a beauty and entirely made out of LEGO pieces! So we absolutely love it! Watch it at work!

This teaser from SEGA seems to announce the return of Castle Of Illusion

castle of illusion sega disney mickey mouse

 

Earlier today SEGA of America uploaded a mysterious new video on its YouTube channel. The silent b/w teaser really looks like some sort of Castle Of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse remake/sequel.

As you can see, the trailer has no description and the title just says “Summer 2013”, but the style is unmistakeble and this is definitely something about the Genesis’ evergreen Castle Of Illusion from 1990. We are quite sure about this because of the 1990 – 2013 copyright at the end of the video, but also because the game was already added to the brazilian ratings bureau and someone an NeoGAF spotted a box art from the xbox.com HTML code.

So it looks like another Disney’s classic game will see the HD light this year (after the great announcement of Duck Tales Remastered by Capcom last month). Seems like Disney has something to be forgiven for…isn’t it?
