Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Release Date Announced

Sorry eager fans, you'll be waiting till 2012 for your fix.

Capcom revealed today that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City won't be making its previously announced release window of fourth quarter 2011. While the game has been pushed back, it has been given a solid release date for the console versions of the game. Players will take the side of the bad guys in the Slant Six developed third person shooter on March 20, 2012. While also due for release on PC, Capcom has yet to announce when the game will come to market, though it won't be until after the console versions release.

As per usual, the game will also have a special edition, which includes a steel book with exclusive art, a stylized foil sleeve, eight bonus in-game weapons, and two patches - an Umbrella Security Service patch as well as a Spec Ops Field Unit patch.

Given that development is being handled by SOCOM developer, Slant Six, players should expect an experience that isn't quite like what has been offered in the past. Furthermore, the four player simultaneous co-op and the alignment with Umbrella rather than STARS will make for a Resident Evil experience unlike anything Capcom has done with the series in the past. Players will still be fighting off the undead, but it will be during a constant pursuit of the typical story protagonists, like Leon Kennedy.

Next year is turning into quite the little Resident Evil love fest with Revelations coming out in January and then Operation Raccoon City coming out in March.

I'm glad that we have a few more months to wait for this. Publishers really need to get better about not bunching up major releases so close together. October and November of this year is ridiculous and a lot of good games are going to get neglected because gamers don't have enough time or money to play them all.

A few months late but no... It would not be called Tanuki City because it is the name of a proper noun... Such as a name or a place... California in english is California in Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin, French, etc... xxx: don't know if you were joking or not so bleh!...

Mega Man 3 Review Rewind

For years, there has been a heated debate among fans of the Mega Man series regarding which one is the best of the original hexalogy. After the facts have been laid out and philosophical life lessons thoroughly dissected, the debate usually boils down to Mega Man 2 vs. Mega Man 3. Which is the greater of the two? Well, no matter which side you’re on, we can all agree on the thing- the cover art for Mega Man 3 finally got it right! No more awkward stances or that pistol-for-an-arm-cannon nonsense. Of course, he didn’t look as good as on the Famicom cover, but that’s another argument.
