NY Comic-Con 2015 attendees will get to play Capcom’s Umbrella Corps, Street Fighter V, Resident Evil 0, Mega Man Legacy Collection


Capcom has announced that they will offer four playable demos at their New York Comic-Con booth (#1420) this weekend.

NYCC attendees will be the first folks in North America to get a chance to try out Umbrella Corps, a Resident Evil-themed team shooter that was first revealed at last month’s Tokyo Game Show. And speaking of Capcom’s undead franchise, a demo of Resident Evil 0 will also be available. Both games are scheduled to be released early next year.

If you’re looking for new announcements, look no further than Street Fighter V. Capcom will offer a playable demo of the fighting game on the show floor and the publisher is strongly hinting that Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono will reveal another new challenger over the weekend. Finally, the currently-available Mega Man Legacy Collection will also be available to try out in all its retro glory.

Capcom will also host a pair of panels this weekend including a “World of Capcom” panel on Thursday, October 8 and a Street Fighter V panel on Saturday, October 10.

Hello Games brought No Man’s Sky to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

After three weeks on the air, Stephen Colbert has chatted with a stunning variety of guests on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Besides the familiar cadre of actors and musicians, Colbert has sat down with CEOs, politicians, activists, and whatever category you want to cram Donald Trump into. And starting with Friday’s edition of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, you can add game designers to the list.

Appearing after Morgan Freeman, Sean Murray of Hello Games met with Colbert to talk about No Man’s Sky, his upcoming space exploration game for the PC and PS4. While the game’s release date is still a mystery, Murray was able to demonstrate a handful of the game’s 18 quintillion (18,000,000,000,000,000,000) planets for Colbert. The host even got to land on “Colbert Prime” (which is in the “Colbert System”) and lend his name to the “Stephenus Rex” and the “Molebert.”

It’s unknown if these names will remain in No Man’s Sky when it’s officially released, but I certainly hope they do.

Weekly Warp-Up: Is It Fall Yet? Edition

No, that’s not a typo. Welcome to the Weekly Warp-Up, your weekly wrap-up of the biggest and the best articles posted at Warp Zoned this week…

Maybe it’s just me, but this Fall seems downright quiet compared to some years. Sure, there’s still a lot of new games coming out between now and the end of the year, but it doesn’t feel quite as overwhelming as it has in years past. Many of this Fall’s biggest titles were delayed into 2016, so maybe this is just the calm before the big storm in Spring 2016.

However, that hasn’t stopped the Warp Zoned staff from keeping up with the latest games. Due to the recent calendar turnover, we compiled a selection of What We Played in September 2015, as well as examined The Games of October 2015. It might be a slower-paced Fall gaming season, but there is still plenty of interesting titles in the pipeline.

Even more news from this week can be found after the break.

It’s time to rock the world once more as Harmonix will release Rock Band 4 for the PS4 and Xbox One this week. In addition to the standard “Game Only” edition, the developer is also planning to replenish your stock of plastic instruments with a Rock Band 4: Guitar Bundle and a Band-In-A-Box Bundle.

Another big franchise that we’ll remember for centuries is coming back this week thanks to Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on the PS4. Also available as part of a 500GB PS4 + Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Bundle, the collection brings together Drake’s first three adventures and also includes an access code for the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End beta.

And speaking of characters that have been popular for centuries, Activision and Platinum have teamed up to produce Transformers: Devastation, a cel-shaded action game based on the franchise’s “Generation 1” era. It looks gorgeous and it’ll be available for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Finally, somebody told me that people love Nintendo’s adorable Chibi-Robo and NIS America’s Disgaea series of strategy RPGs. Fans are in luck this week, as new entries in both franchises are set to be released this week. Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash is a side-scrolling platformer for the 3DS, while Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance brings the series to the PS4 for the first time.

A complete list of this week’s new releases is available after the break.
