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.

Should Tsukumo vs Capcom be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

When we think about big fighting titles on the Wii that’s deserved a re-release if some type Tsukumo vs Capcom is one of the many games that comes to mind. Tsukumo vs Capcom was released many years ago in 2008 and is seen by some people as a fight game that is highly underrated. Seeing Tsukumo vs Capcom on the Nintendo Switch would especially be a great alternative if for whatever reason we do not get to see Marvel vs Capcom 3 or Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite on the hybrid console in the future.

Following its release in December 2008 Tsukumo vs Capcom has received positive reviews from critics from different gaming publications. In fact, Tsukumo vs Capcom has won the award of “Best Fighting Game” at the Game Critics Award following the E3 event in 2009. Despite, being criticized for its arcade mode and slower gameplay in comparison to games such as Marvel vs Capcom 2 it was still a pretty solid fighting title that deserves to ported to the Switch console.

Will 2018 be Capcom’s best year of the decade?

There is no doubt that Capcom has started out 2018 on a very high note considering how successful Monster Hunter World has been since its release back in January 2018. Since its release Monster Hunter World has sold at least 7.5 million units worldwide within a few weeks and has easily become Capcom’s best selling game ever. While sales for Monster Hunter World will continue to grow throughout the year we also have other big releases from Capcom coming up in 2018.

This upcoming summer the Mega Man X Anniversary Collection 1 & 2 will be released for various game consoles including the PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. Not only have many people waited for Capcom to re-release the Mega Man X Collection for the past couple of years; but it’s also a treat since Mega Man 11 will be coming out later this year as well.

On top of all that we have the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection coming out this month featuring the best 2D arcade titles in series from the 90’s. As of right now 2018 looks like it’s going to be a very high profile year for Capcom. It also seems like Capcom’s popularity is going to increase as we move closer to 2019.

Upcoming Games- Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection: (2018)

If you are a huge fan of the the Street Fighter series then you will be happy to know that Capcom will be releasing a collection of every game in the set from the original 1987 title all the way up to 3rd Strike which came out in 1999. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the legendary Street Fighter series has been around for at least decades now. The Street Fighter series was arguably at its peak in terms of popularity during the 90’s before making a comeback in the late 00’s with the emergence of Street Fighter IV.

As of right now the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is set to be released on multiple game consoles including the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in May 2018. Not only will players have the chance to relive various classics in the Street Fighter series but they will also be able to join lobbies for online multiplayer gameplay. There is no doubt that the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is going to be a game that many fans of the series will look forward to purchasing in the future.

Would Strider have worked on the SNES during the 90’s?

When it comes down to platform titles of the early 90’s Strider was a popular title back in arcade centers along with consoles such as the Sega Genesis. Even though, we had the chance to see a Strider game for the NES in 1989 the world never got a chance to see a title for the SNES back in the 90’s.

It may have made more sense to have a Strider game on the SNES especially since Capcom has produced many titles on that consoles which were successful such as Street Fighter II along with the Mega Man X series. While it was a treat to see Strider in the Sega Genesis it seemed like platform titles aside from the Sonic the Hedgehog series did not stand out as on that console. In fact it seemed like generic platform titles stood out more on the SNES than the Sega Genesis. Looking back at things now some might argue that Capcom missed an opportunity to make Strider a success for the SNES back in the early 90’s.

Classic Gaming- MegaMan X5: (2000)

When comes down to action-platform titles of the 2000’s MegaMan X5 is one of the most memorable 2D titles that Capcom has ever released in the PS1. There were multiple things about the game including its 2D visuals along with its legendary soundtrack that made MegaMan X5 such an enjoyable video game. While some game publications praised the 2D graphics used for MegaMan X5 other criticized the game for the very same reason during the early 00’s.

However, the plot for MegaMan X5 was pretty decent as players saw the return of Sigma as the main antagonist for this game. Players in MegaMan X5 must thwart Sigma’s plans by prevent a space colony called “Eurasia” from colliding and ultimately destroying the Earth. Some might argue that the plot for MegaMan X5 was very creative especially considering the fact that Sonic Adventure 2 which was released one year later had a similar story that involved saving the Earth from a space colony as well.

MegaMan X5 May not be the most popular game within the MegaMan series but there is no denying that the soundtrack for this title was awesome. Capcom gave us the legendary X vs Zero theme which is arguably one of the best boss battle soundtracks in gaming history. As a 2D platform title MegaMan X5 was arguably one of the better games in the series following its peak in popularity in the early to mid 90’s.

Monster Hunter World not appearing on the Nintendo Switch?

Ever since Monster Hunter World was released for the PS4 and the Xbox One many people have wondered whether or not the game was ever going to be ported for the Nintendo Switch. Not to long ago Capcom has recently commented on bringing Monster Hunter World to the Nintendo Switch and they believe that it would be a incredibly difficult task. It’s not like Capcom has no interest in having Monster Hunter World on the Nintendo Switch at all.

The problem is the fact that the Nintendo Switch may not be able to handle the game itself due to the limitations it has in comparison to the PS4 and the Xbox One. But on the plus side Monster Hunter World will be appearing on Microsoft Windows during the second half of 2018 which is probably better than having the game on the Nintendo Switch.

Should Capcom make a remastered version Street Fighter X Tekken?

Street Fighter v Tekken

Street Fighter X Tekken was crossover fighting game that the gaming world has been waiting to see since the 90’s.  Ever since 2012 there have been many people who question whether or not Capcom ever plans on re-releasing a remastered version of Street Fighter  X Tekken.  In the past couple of years since Street Fighter X Tekken was first released there has really been no major talk about its possible re-release for a current generation console.  However, there are die hard fans of Street Fighter X Tekken who would love to see it happen simply because as a fighting game it was so much fun to play.  Even though, Street Fighter X Tekken was not as popular as games like Super Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs Capcom 3 or even Tekken 6 it was still one of those games that many retro gamers from the 90’s never though they would see.

In fact the demand to see a remake for Street Fighter X Tekken is so high that a online petition was started a while ago to have the game remastered in future for either the PS4 or the Xbox One.  Street Fighter X Tekken may be one of the only titles where we get to see characters such as Ryu, Kazuya, Chun-Li, Heihachi Mishima, Guile and others all in one game.  If anything an online petition for a remastered version for Street Fighter X Tekken could be considered a testament to how cool this game was and still is following its release back in 2012.

Will Mega Man 11 sell more than Mega Man 10?

Mega-Man-11-Wallpaper-730x344

As of right now its hard to predict whether or not Mega Mann 11 will end up selling more than Mega Man 10.  When it comes down to sales it seems unclear on how much of a success Mega Man 10 was.  After Mega Man 10 was released back in 2010 and if the game was considered a big success or sold millions worldwide Capcom probably would have made a sequel a lot sooner.  But to be fair the Mega Man series is very old and started to lose some of its luster after the 90’s.

While the older Mega Man games generally included 8 or 16 bit graphics it seems like Capcom plans on doing with Mega Man 11 what Sega decided to do with Sonic the Hedgehog 4 back in 2010 in terms of gameplay and graphics.  Since Capcom is willing to try something new with the Mega Man series it could be something that ends up paying off in the long run.  Just like people waited for many years to see a direct sequel for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 the same is true for Mega Man 10.  Hopefully, Capcom doesn’t make the same mistakes with Mega Man 11 that Level 5 Comcept and Inti Creates made with Mighty No. 9 prior to its release in 2016.

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.
