What's the point of applying a score to a game that's old enough to be enrolled in the sixth grade? That's why we invented Deja Review: ...

Capcom fighting ambassador Seth Killian offered an explanation we hadn't considered for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's seemingly early release (just nine months after MvC3): Marvel licensing constraints. "We have the license for this specific game, but other companies outside of Capcom have li...

No doubt, most (if not all) of you are intimately familiar with Frank West and his impressive photojournalist/zombie murderer resume. Not only has he fought for his very life against imesurable odds, but he's also fought for Capcom against Japan's historic anime alumni in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: ...
