Resident Evil 5 & 6 still pulling in a lot of cash for Capcom

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Resident Evil 4 is one of the greatest game of all time? Not to Capcom’s check book, it isn’t. According to sales figures, its two successors Resident Evil 5 and 6 are still somewhat big money makers for the company and have done quite well for themselves over the previous year.

Resident Evil 5, which is the best selling Capcom game of all time, still managed to sell a reasonable 100,000 units since June 2014, bringing it to a grand total of 6.8 million copies. Not bad for a game that is six years old. The game is not held in nearly the same regard as Resident Evil 4, but it is one of the few shining stars from the franchise over the last ten years.

The other major game couldn’t be held in more contempt throughout the gaming world. Resident Evil 6, despite its reputation as a colossal critical failure, still sold 300,000 in 2014, bringing its total from 5.9 million to 6.2 million since last June. Come to think of it, I was one of those sales after I picked up Resident Evil 6 for pocket change during a PlayStation sale.

You can blame me, I’m sorry.

Resident Evil Revelations 2‘s smaller budgeted gamble is also paying off quite well for the company, and it has sold 1.1 million units across digital and physical releases. Don’t look now, but Resident Evil HD Remaster is also a million seller. In total, the series has sold 65 million copies worldwide. Anyone still think that they should cancel the movie franchise?

I think it goes without saying that Resident Evil is the company’s most valuable property. However, heading into its next fiscal year, the cartoonish Monster Hunter Stories and Street Fighter V are still considered to be the company’s top contenders. Would Resident Evil 7 change that? I’m not sure if the world is quite ready.

Meanwhile, Mega Man 2 from 1988 is still the best selling Mega Man title. Just saiyan

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
