Is $900 a reasonable price for the Resident Evil 2: Remake Premium Edition?

There is many people talking about the upcoming Resident Evil 2: Remake which is set to be released during the first half of 2019. Recently, there has also been a lot of talk regarding the Premium Edition of the Resident Evil 2: Remake which is currently set at $900. For those who are unaware the Premium Edition of the Resident Evil 2 will include a Bluetooth along with a typewriter keyboard that has a charging cable. While the Premium Edition of the Resident Evil 2: Remake is optional and recommended for those who are hardcore fans of the series some might argue that the price is very hefty. But to be fair a typewriter and a Bluetooth by itself is very expensive separately so saying that the Premium Edition of this game at $900 would not make too much sense at all.

Besides if players who like the Resident Evil series do not want to purchase the Premium Edition they can always get the Collectors Edition which has just about everything except the keyboard and is priced around $680 in America. If people believe that the Collectors Edition is too expensive they can simply just purchase the game for the PlayStation 4 for only $59.99.

Could the Final Fight series have worked on the Sega Genesis?


The Final Fight series is one of the most legendary beat em up video game series of all time. Since its inception in the late 80’s the Final Fight series had managed to become very popular on the SNES before the beat em up genre of gaming started to decline in the early 90’s leading to the rise of popularity of fighting titles such as Street Fighter II.  

But since the Final Fight series was mostly on the SNES some people wonder whether or not it could have worked on the Sega Genesis. Final Fight could have definitely worked on the SNES however the series has been competing with the likes of the Streets of Rage series in the early 90’s as far as the beat em up genre is concerned. However, Capcom had choose the Sega Genesis over the SNES for the Final Fight series it may not have been as successful as it was back in the day.  

Should the Final Fight series return on the SNES Classic Edition?

Back in the early 90’s the beat em up genre of gaming was very popular in both arcade centers and with home based consoles such as the SNES.  This was especially true with games such as the Final Fight series. While some people might argue that the series slowly started to decline in popularity shortly after the first Final Fight game others  would say that the whole trilogy were enjoyable classics.


In fact when you go to most used game stores nowadays such as Game X Change games such as the Final Fight series for the SNES are generally hard to find.  The fact that any of the Final Fight titles are tough to find in most used video game stores gives people an idea on how valuable certain games were and still are to this day.

Even though, the Final Fight series was popular back in the early to mid 90’s the gaming world has changed a lot since then. The beat em up genre of gaming has declined since the early 90’s and never reached the same level of popularity since then.  However, adding titles such as the Final Fight series to the SNES Classic Edition will give the console more variety in relation gaming genres.  

Should the Mega Man X Collection be re-released for the PS4?

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the Mega Man X Collection was released over sixteen years ago for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube.  Since its release many have wondered whether or not the game was ever going to be re-released for the PS4. Recently, the world had witnessed the release of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 for the PS4 which features Mega Man 7-10.


While the release of Mega Man Legacy Collection is something that many people are happy to see they would probably argue that the Mega Man X series was more popular. When the Mega Man X series was first introduced in the early 90’s we got amazing 16 bit gameplay, awesome soundtracks along with the debut of the most popular characters in the series Zero.

If Capcom had made the decision to release the second anniversary of Mega Man for the PS4 then we should definitely get a re-release of the Mega Man X Collection as well.

Was Street Fighter V a better game than Super Street Fighter IV?

There are many people who are fans of the Street Fighter series who have different opinions about which game was better.   When Street Fighter V was first released many people ragged on the game since the game since it was rushed.  But ever since Capcom included all of the features that were intended to be in Street Fighter V such as new characters and cinematic cutscenes some people believe that it’s one of the best titles in the entire series.

When the original Super Street Fighter IV title Capcom gave us the finished version of the game with all of the characters along with an exciting online multiplayer mode.  When Super Street Fighter IV was first released it seemed like it gained more mainstream attention back in 2010 then Street Fighter V did 2016.  While Street Fighter IV featured a large roster of classic characters from the II and Alpha series Street Fighter V was probably one of the first games in the series to have a campaign mode that resembled an actual movie.

Even though, Mickey Mouse was is very popular and one of the biggest names in Disney when it came down to after school or weekend television shows. Programs such as Darkwing Duck and Ducktales stood out more to some people who grew up during the early 90’s.  When it comes down to additional video games that people may want Capcom to re-release in a bundle various other Disney games come to mind.   There are so many cool titles such as Mickey Castle of Illusion, Goof Troop, Disney Magical Quest and The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickie and Minnie that many people would love to see re-released on gaming networks such as the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.

Retro Gaming 10’s- Street Fighter X Tekken: (2012)

Street Fighter X Tekken (2)

When Street Fighter X Tekken was first released for multiple game consoles back in 2012 many people were very excited to see how great this title would be.  A crossover game between Street Fighter and Tekken was at least fifteen years in the making prior to when it actually happened.   While the gameplay and graphics for Street Fighter X Tekken were impressive some would probably argue that the story could have been better.  Even though, some might say that Street Fighter X Tekken lacked a strong story mode other would argue that the Pandora concept was a creative way to bring the two different universes together in this game.      Street Fighter X Tekken had included a large roster of characters included household names such as Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, Ken, Akuma, Nina, Jin, Askua, Lili, Kazuya and others.

The gaming mechanics in this game were pretty cool because it allowed players to pull of various different types of moves with their characters including Partner Cancels, EX Attacks and Super Arts attacks.  The “Gem System” a nice gaming mechanic because it allowed players to boost the stats of their characters going into battle.  While the stats that gems increase range from attack and speed all the way to defense players were only allowed to choose three before battle.  Another significant feature in this game included “Pandora Mode” which was especially helpful if one of the two characters a player is controlling is on the verge of losing a battle.  The only catch about “Pandora Mode” is the fact that it only lasts for a short period of time and if players to fail to lose it on their opponents they while lose the ability altogether.

As exciting as this game was with both an offline and with a online multiplayer game mode Street Fighter X Tekken did not sell quite as much as people expected.  In terms of sales the PlayStation 3 port came the closest to reaching one million in sales in comparison to the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation Vita.  Much like Tekken Tag Tournament 2 released back in 2011 players had a greater preference for the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fighter X Tekken.  The PlayStation 3 version Street Fighter X Tekken seemed more promising with the likes of Mega Man & Pac Man as downloadable characters.  Many people would probably agree that Street X Tekken not only deserved an arcade release but also a direct sequel to follow it which is something that we are all looking forward to

Should Capcom make a 2D sequel to Final Fight 3?

 

Final Fight 1When the Final Fight series was developed back in the late 80’s it was known to be one of the best beat em up fighting games of its time.  Since its release the Final Fight series has been rivaled by other game titles including the Streets of Rage and Double Dragon which were also popular during the mid to late 80’s and the early 90’s.  While many people enjoyed the Final Fight series during the early 90’s it began to decline in popularity shortly after due to the rise of head to head fighting games such as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.  Just because the beat em up genre of gaming had declined in popularity it does not mean that the quality of titles such as the Final Fight series did as well.

As many people know the original Final Fight game received an arcade release unlike its two successors which were both exclusive for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Even though, the original Final Fight game was probably the most popular one out of the trilogy the other two games were still enjoyable classics to play during the 16 bit era.  With characters such as Mike Haggar, Guy, Cody and Lucia.  It would come to the surprise of many people if Capcom ever decides to make a new 2D Final Fight game for the Nintendo Switch.  Even though, the beat em up genre is not as popular as it used to be another Final Fight game would be something to the delight of many Capcom fans.
