Zero Suit Samus Gets Modded Into Street Fighter V

Here comes a new challenger we can get behind.

Nintendo’s not looking to do much with Samus these days. Fortunately, fans are more than happy to throw her into other games, like Street Fighter V. There is no shortage of hilarious and cool Street Fighter V mods, but this Cammy mod from Khaledantar666 is also pretty great.

Frank West's Story Continues In April's Dead Rising 4 DLC

Capcom and Microsoft have announced a release date for the upcoming Dead Rising 4 story DLC, Frank Rising. Frank West's story continues in early April, with the longtime hero experiencing a significant physical transformation that will have far-reaching implications.

The new single-player story mission starts with an infected Frank wandering the streets of Willamette. After being found and rescued by someone from his past, Frank works to uncover a permanent cure to the virus. Players will have access to new abilities, but it's balanced somewhat by his inability to consume regular food. Instead, he'll have to chomp on human flesh to restore his health. The download is coming to Xbox One and PC on April 4 for $9.99 or as part of the game's season pass.

In addition to that, Frank is going to be able to get his minigolf fix in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf, which features commentary, unlockable gear, and support for up to four players. It's coming sometime "soon" for Xbox One and PC, according to Microsoft, and it will be available as a $9.99 standalone or as part of Dead Rising 4's season pass.

BioWare Responds To Harassment Following Uproar About Mass Effect: Andromeda's Animations

In the last few days, controversy has spread online surrounding Mass Effect: Andromeda's wonky animations. While most of the online clips and images poke fun at character movements rather than project malicious intent, some people began harassing a former female Electronic Arts employee and casting the blame on her.

BioWare responded to the harassment recently via Twitter, stating the victim of harassment was misidentified as the lead animator of Mass Effect: Andromeda. According to the studio, she had never been in the lead animation role to begin with. You can view the statement from BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn below:

YouTuber Creates Lego Replica Of Symmetra's Weapon From Overwatch

ZaziNombies, a YouTuber known for creating Lego replicas of video game weapons, has dedicated his latest video to Symmetra from Overwatch. With about 450 Lego pieces, he built her powerful photon projector that Symmetra wields in-game.

This Lego version of the gun weighs a bit more than one pound and measures 15 and a half inches. In-game, Symmetra's photon projector uses a homing beam that deals an increasing amount of damage to enemies when used.

On-Disc DLC For Dreamcast Game Unlocked, 17 Years Later

On-Disc DLC For Dreamcast Game Unlocked, 17 Years Later

Flogian Bros. was a Sega Dreamcast game developed by Visual Concepts (who currently works on 2K Games' sports titles) and released in 2001. Sporting an "episode 1" after its title, the game seemed to part of something larger that never occurred, including twelve months of DLC for the first episode. While we'll probably never see episode two, we can at least take solace in the fact that the DLC is finally available.

As reported on Retro Gaming Mag, three of the developers behind the game (Tim Meekins, Nick Jones, and John Elliott), have delved back into the on-disc security measures they initially implemented and circumvented it in order to help release each of the 12 pieces of DLC on Dreamcast Live, where fans can put the files on the Dreamcast's VMU (Virtual Memory Unit) and play them in the original game. This is a pretty cool move for the trio, who still work at the company that helped release the game.

To see what Flogian Bros. looks like, you can watch (in the mother of all coincidences since I've started working here at Game Informer) Kyle Hilliard and Ben Reeves play the game with comedian Jackie Kashian on this very website. You can watch a quick recap of what happened (and take a look at the DLC items, if you're curious) here.

Reader Discussion – What Games Would You Pay To Play Early?

Reader Discussion – What Games Would You Pay To Play Early?

You could be playing Mass Effect: Andromeda right now, you know. Maybe not the whole thing, but if you have EA Access (on Xbox One) or Origin Access (on PC), you could be playing through the first 10 hours of Andromeda. But you have to pay for those services, which makes it a tricky proposition. It's not the first time this has happened, though; Forza Horizon was one of a handful of titles you could play days before its official launch if you ponied up for the special edition. Which begs the question: what game would it take to put you over the edge and pay up?

It's a difficult question, especially for someone in my position. As an editor for Game Informer, I regularly get codes and copies of games, occasionally before release. But that's not always the case, and I think that if I could have paid an extra $50 to have my own Switch and a copy of Breath of the Wild a week or two ahead of time, I would have been tempted. But usually, it's hard to know whether a game will be worth the extra money.

So what game would pay early to play, if at all? Have you imported games knowing they'd eventually wind up in the States? How much would you pay to play your most anticipated game? If you could pay $30 to play, say, Red Dead Redemption 2 a week ahead of release, would you? Let us know in the comments.

Respawn Working With Other Developers On Mobile, Korean Free-To-Play Titanfall Games

Respawn Working With Other Developers On Mobile, Korean Free-To-Play Titanfall Games

Titanfall 2, one of the best games of last year, kind of came and went with some disappointing sales. But developer Respawn has kept plugging away at updates for the game, adding maps and tweaking the game since launch. But beyond the changes to the current game in the series, Respawn is looking to expand the series in a number of ways.

For one, the company is working with South Korean video game company Nexon to publish a free-to-play version of Titanfall in the country. This might sound strange but it's not too surprising; other games, like Call of Duty, have had free-to-play versions of their games there, due largely to the dominance of public PC gaming spaces, called bangs, where players pay for game time instead of the games themselves.

Respawn is also working with other developers to make "awesome mobile titles set in the world of Titanfall," a company spokesperson said on the company's blog.
