Capcom has made a real attempt in recent years to break down the firewall between western and eastern development, something it's still struggling with if "sluggish" sales in 2009 are any indication. But according to a recent report (warning: PDF link) circulated to investors, the company's still r...

We find it funny that Capcom is celebrating the existence of an elevator level in Spyborgs with this trailer -- elevator levels are basically the laziest way to design a brawler level, requiring only a persistent floor, a looping background and frequent enemy drops from the top of the screen.That sa...

The gang at 4 Color Rebellion nabbed an interview with Spyborgs lead producer Daryl Allison, in which he (very) subtly slams Wii developers for using the system itself as a cop-out for delivering sub-par visuals. "We were going to make a game that fans of Devil May Cry and God of War would enjoy,"...

We didn't realize Spyborgs had such cool music. We watched the GamesCom trailer above expecting to hear the normal crunching metal and explosion noises you'd expect from a sci-fi brawler. Instead, we got something that makes us want to turn the video on, get up and just dance.After the break, see a...

Capcom has dropped word on the titles it plans to feature at the GamesCom Conference in Cologne later this month, and (for the most part) the games feature a hearty scoop of violence.

If there's one thing we can say about this new Spyborgs trailer, it's that somebody at Capcom has been watching themselves a lot of 24. While the editing may be a bit suspect, the gameplay is not. Though it is a brief trailer, we do get to see all three protagonists roll up their robotic sleeves and...

Spyborgs has its own bionic cybernetic arm-enhanced warrior, and it's but one of three characters you can play as in Spyborgs.So, what are the Spyborgs? The...

It's not by chance that we've chosen this particular screenshot from Capcom's full Spyborgs presentation, which you can watch right here and read some notes on here. The game, indeed, looks about 30 times more awesome than the first time we laid eyes on it lo those many months ago.Now, we don't wan...

Having dropped off the radar to undergo a significant overhaul last year, Capcom and Bionic Games' Spyborgs has reemerged much, much prettier. The design has changed dramatically, dropping the original bright and cutesy look for something darker and (slightly) more mature. Granted, it's not nearly...
