Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition PC version confirmed?

As many of you motivated fellows may know, a special edition of 7 year Devil May Cry 4 was announced in conjunction with DmC: Definite edition. While both games serve as remastered iterations of their preceding versions, DMC4: SE caused slightly more internet buzz (and by slightly, I mean most of it) due to the fact that most fans were under the impression that the classic series was dead due to its replacement by DmC and because of the poor sales of DmC itself, which were much smaller than Capcom originally anticipated. With the announcement of both of these games, both fanbases have reinvigorated to the point of elation. So far, details are scant since Vergil is the only thing we know is new about this version despite the fact that we still don't know in which capacity exactly. In terms of platforms, we know a little more as 2 versions were hinted at in the original teaser, which were the current gen consoles Xbox 1 and PS4 but it seems that the game is coming to the PC as well, seeing as it was rated by The game has been rated for the USK, the rating board in Germany.
More information will follow after the release of DmC since Capcom is trying to avoid both versions to cannibalize each other's advertisement. Smart on Capcom's part.

Ace Attorney 5 - Return of Turnabout

We know he's a better lawyer because his coat is open and he has a pocket watch. Little things count the most, man.
Finally, after a Crossover with Professor Layton that probably won't make its way to the west, Capcom announced Ace Attorney 5 for the 3DS along with a confirmation of a western release.

Oh Capcom, you still get it right sometimes.

As you may have noticed, Phoenix looks like a total badass now as he's returning to the courtroom as a defense lawyer after clearing himself from the charges that got him disbarred in Apollo Justice. So far we know that the game is in 3D but in a way to tries to invoke the feeling of 2D, takes place 1 year after Apollo (Making it 8 years after Trials and Tribulations) and that he'll have a brand new assistant. Gameplay wise, we'll have a new system for the cross examination although we don't know how it works. Not much info for now but Capcom said they would reveal more in TGS and later after that. It will be interesting to see how Phoenix's long experience as a lawyer will show in this game and how it's thematically connected to the new gameplay system. And let's not forget about pretty much every reccuring character from the series like Edgeworth, Maya, Pearls, Emma, Gumshoe and even Apollo and Trucy, the adopted daughter of Phoenix.

It's been awhile since we've played with the goofiest, most lovable and entertaining lawyer in video gaming. Let's hope the game brings along a localization for both Investigations 2 and the Layton Crossover if it's successful enough. Personally, I can't wait to see a big OBJECTION bubble projecting from the DS screen in glorious 3D.

Max Payne 3 - Where mixing drugs and alcohol turn you into a one man army

You know a man has seen some dark shit in his life if his facial structure changes completely every other year

So Max Payne 3 has come and gone. Everybody who wanted to play it already did and probably has an established opinion of it but you know, the point of this blog was never to be punctual in the first place, right? After beating Max Payne 3 not once but thrice, what do I think about it and how close that opinion is to my original thoughts about the game?

Dragon May Cry & Diablo 3 - The lootening

That pretty much says it all. I don't even need to elaborate. I don't know what's up with 2012 but for some reason the gaming industry kept most of its A-game for May. I haven't even touched Max Payne 3 and I seriously need to try that too. I'm sorry I've been skipping on reviews and I promise that will eventually come to pass once again in this shell of a gaming blog. I just have to stop playing every second of my free time.

Devil May Cry HD Collection Analysis

After beating Devil May Cry 1, I'm gonna go grab a BIIIIIIITE!!!

So, before Capcom goes through with the polemic, high risk bet that is the DmC reboot, it decided to give the established fanbase a little treat for the franchise's 10th anniversary with a HD collection of the first 3 games which were all on the PS2. Hoping that this collection will be a good remasterization (Not a real word, I know) of some genre defining oldies, I am certain of one thing: It's definitely going to be better than the piece of shit that is the Silent Hill HD Collection.

A short look on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - The Pros and Cons of experimentation

Master, I detect a 98% probability that I am about to state the obvious.

So I finally managed the time to play and beat Skyward Sword. It was long overdue. Mostly everyone and their mother already said their piece about the game but since I'm still fresh from it, might as well say my overall thought about the game. I keep it short, not in the mood to do an actual review. (Been awhile since I've actually done one. Hurray for procrastination!)

Max Payne 3 - The Good, The Bad and The Bald

Max, you're being made by a different development team!

And now for something completely different. On account of my latest guest review of Max Payne, I was reminded that the upcoming sequel and third game of the franchise is about to be released in may. Considering this is one of my favorite game series and that Remedy, the developer of the game sold the franchise rights to Rockstar, who are now in charge of game development, I'll post a list on what I think the game seems to be doing right and what it's doing wrong. I'll keep it short and simple.
