Capcom plans to serve up a veritable Neapolitan selection of terror this upcoming October with another main series entry to the popular bioweapon infested, zombie-slaying survival horror series, Resident Evil. The developer is trying out a few new things this time around, allowing more flexibility in gameplay as well as a few new features to get a leg up for a somewhat faltering franchise. It seems they’re hoping to stoke a new sense of fear into players everywhere with some new takes as well as keeping the soul of what makes a Resident Evil game. I had the opportunity late last week to wrap my hands around a controller and sink my teeth into a good chunk of Resident Evil 6. Read on to find out why this might be the series’ next big deal since Leon’s romp in RE4.

KAYAC is a Japanese developer with a handful of titles in the iTunes App store that feel like spiritual successors to the infernal game modes of the under-loved PSP minigame collection, Work Time Fun. Each one involves a single flick or swipe mechanic on your iPhone screen for 20 second bursts of scored gameplay, and right now five of their games are free in the App store. The typical synopsis goes a little something like this:

"Fish Man" is a simple fish cutting game.
Fish men are running around. Cut them as speedily as possible!

That's obviously from the game Fish Man (here's its iTunes page), and in those few words, you pretty much get the gist of what you're doing in those games.

We don't do a ton of mobile game coverage here, and these games are pretty uncomplicated and basic, but taken together (and owing to my how much, again, their WTF-ness remind me of Work Time Fun), I thought I'd point you in their direction and let you see if it was worth checking out for yourself.

Last week at E3, Nintendo showcased so much new information about their upcoming system, the Wii U, that it's really easy to overlook one of the console's most intriguing functions. During Nintendo's pre-E3 live stream there was one thing in particular about the newly redesigned controller that seemed out of place. The screen we already knew about. The adjustments to analog sticks had already been leaked. It was the new "TV" button that sat at the bottom of the face of the controller that stood out. Never before had a game console included such a feature, but Nintendo isn't a company known to imitate others. A few days after the feature was announced, I had a chance to speak with Nintendo's Director of Public Relations, Marc Franklin, who helped provide some insight into how the Wii U is looking to take over your television.

One of the most controversial announcements at this year's E3 came during the Nintendo press briefing when the Japanese video game maker showcased Nintendo Land for the first time to the public. Build to demonstrate the Wii U's capabilities; Nintendo Land is a theme park themed centralized hub that will feature 12 unique titles to coincide with the launch of the system. During E3 Nintendo was had five of them on display and announced the sixth one, leaving the remaining six to be revealed in the coming months. The five games that were on the show floor took advantage of some of Nintendo's oldest i.p.s to help drive home what the games, and system were all about.

There was a time when a lot of companies were trying to get on the kart-racing bandwagon. Everyone and everything, from Konami to The Smurfs, had their own racer; Sega even dabbled a bit, putting Sonic up against some of his friends in Sonic R, Sonic Drift, and Sonic Riders. Fast forward a few years and Sega finally got things right with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, which brought together characters from Sega's rich history to go head-to-head in a light and accessible kart racing game on just about every platform imaginable. Luckily for fans of the original, a new sequel has been announced, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, which takes the formula for the original, and expands on it by sending racers into the air, and onto the sea.

I’m not really sure where to begin with Bethesda published, Arkane Studio’s  new game ‘Dishonored’ and I must admit I came into the preview pretty cold without much knowledge of what to expect. I just knew that is was a first person melee game with magic powers. If you watched the debut video, you may have just dismissed this as a BioShock set in an industrial-age, steampunk dystopia featuring mystical elements, and I really wouldn’t say you’re wrong. However, I find it pretty lazy when something is described as ‘x but with y’. So, I aim to tell you why you should put away any assumptions and keep a keen eye out for this game.

Max Payne’s been out of the line of duty for a few years now but he’s making a comeback in a big way this May. The next installment features Max in private service for a high profile client in South America but soon things turn for the worse as his employer’s wife is kidnapped and Max must once again find the truth the hard way.

Rockstar invited me to their offices for a walk through of portion of the single player story for ‘Max Payne 3’. Last week, I got a taste for the hard-boiled action that you knew from the first games.  Keep reading for my impressions as I jump in slow-motion and pump a few rounds into some criminal scum.

You may have remembered Todd Howard’s Keynote at DICE about the various ideas (skeleton butlers? hell yeah!) that unfortunately never made it to the retail release of ‘Skyim’. One of them was an obvious fit for Xbox’s answer to motion control. With the Kinect’s voice recognition, now you can finally scream at the TV without being angry at 12 year old spawn campers.
