Capcom Fighters Network & The Return Of Karin Unveiled For Street Fighter V

After placing first in a Japanese fan poll two years ago, Capcom has decided to include Karin as the next character in Street Fighter V, with a new look and playstyle from her last appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Also at TGS, the company dropped some info about the game's online infrastructure.

Karin practices her own Kanzuki fighting style. She's generally a well-rounded fighter who has a dash to close distances, and her V-Trigger allows her to use her Guren Ken attack. This can be followed up by half-a-dozen moves, including a flying throw, backdash for counter-attacks, and a low sweep. Be sure to check out her debut trailer below.

At TGS, the company also announced the Capcom Fighters Network – a community-building component of the game's online infrastructure with features such as a heat map for finding where the action is (including being able to drill down into individual users), match stats, the ability to designate rivals, replays, invites, and more. Capcom says it will unveil more details about CFN soon.

Human Child Experiences Reality-Shattering Life Event In Lego Dimensions Trailer

about X hours ago from

Warner Interactive and TT Games have released a new trailer for Lego Dimensions, which is (perhaps unintentionally) an homage to kid-focused advertising from back in the day.

The clip doesn't feature any notable gameplay or particularly interesting character animations, but it does have one thing going for it: A kid is sucked into an alternate dimension after the walls of his home crack apart. All that's missing from the '90s-style punchline is a squealing guitar riff and a shot of our young hero putting on a pair of bitchin' shades. Maybe next time.

Persona 5 Delayed, Will Now Release Summer 2016 In Japan

about X hours ago from

While this is likely not to surprise anyone too much, Atlus has confirmed that Persona 5 won’t be arriving this year. At least we have a gorgeous new trailer as salve for this burn.

The bad news is that it means we might have to wait an entire extra year for western localization. In the meantime, I suggest you play Persona Q on 3DS. It’s that good.

Fallout 4’s Perception Stat Makes You Better At Stealing

In the second Fallout 4 “What Makes You S.P.E.C.I.A.L.” video, we learn about the importance of perception. Using your five senses in the harsh wasteland gives you an edge in combat and can keep you out of trouble.

A high perception can increase your ability to hit an opponent while using the VATS targeting system. It can also enable you to pickpocket (or drop a live grenade into an enemy’s pocket) without being caught.

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft made an appearance at Sony’s Tokyo Press Conference today to reveal details about the upcoming Jack the Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, along with further information on what players can expect if they choose to buy the full season pass.

The Jack the Ripper add-on is set 20 years after the main game, in 1888, and follows the events of the Autumn of Terror in Whitechapel, during which Jack the Ripper earned a name as one of history’s most infamous serial killers. Players help Inspector Frederick Abberline of Scotland Yard as he tackles the case.

In addition to the new Jack the Ripper missions, players who purchase the season pass will get The Last Maharaja mission pack, a set of ten new missions focused on helping Duleep Singh to reclaim his title of Maharaja, a mission called A Long Night, focused on Jacob helping out a fellow gang member, and the Streets of London gameplay pack, which promises an hour of additional missions and a wealth of new gear and outfits. The season pass also includes two separate equipment packs called the Steampunk and Victorian Legends pack, both of which include new gear and weapons. Finally, season pass holders are set to receive an XP boost unavailable to other players.
