The most overrated Xbox One games of 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for many people, though for the Xbox One, things were pretty fantastic. As publishers took full advantage of the three-year-old console, giving us instant classics such as “Gears of War 4”, “Forza Horizon 3”, “Overwatch“, “Doom 2016” and “Dark Souls 3“. However, not every hyped up game was a home run; some games crashed and… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Demented New Holiday DLC Release for Dead Rising 4

Santa Suit Frank Doles out Demented Holiday Mayhem in New Holiday DLC for Dead Rising 4 Seems like almost every developer is dipping into the holiday egg-nog and releasing some some DLC or additional content this season. Developer, Capcom Vancouver jumped in on this tradition today by releasing an X-mas themed DLC pack for Dead Rising 4. As it turns out, they may have put a bit too much rum in this years nog…  this update looks more like something straight out of a Krampus’ fever dream rather than out of Santa’s gift bag. Theres a new spiffy Santa suit for Frank to wear while he smashes his way through zombies that can now be dressed up in new ways including creepy green elf costumes. Players also get a few other goodies including a new modified baseball bat decked out in colorful lights and of course, barbed wire, as well as a lazer blasting motorcycle with a punny holiday name.  Theres even an explosive new weapon called, “Candy Pain,” that looks like a cross between a rocket powered sledge hammer and a giant novelty candy cane! Perhaps the best and most satisfying addition is the ginger bread zombies… Theres

UK Sales Chart Top 10: The Last Guardian Loses Out to Zombies

Sony’s The Last Guardian failed to take Top 5 in the UK Top 10 Sales Chart and Dead Rising 4 makes the cut After a nearly decade-long delay, The Last Guardian was released December 9th to long-awaited bated breaths and overall positive reviews. Even we here at COGconnected gave it a solid 80 in our review below and praised its stunning presentation and emotional narrative. However, it seems The Last Guardian has failed to hit the ground running in terms of sales. The game only managed to snag the No.7 position in physical sales for the UK Top 10 Sales Chart its debut week. Not only did the highly anticipated title fail to break into the top 5, it also fell behind its launch date competitor Dead Rising 4 (who scored the No.5 spot). Which begs the question, did people not like the game, or do people just really like shooting zombies? One may never know. Compared to its predecessor, Shadow of the Colossus, this may seem a little disheartening. Shadow of the Colossus grabbed the top ranks its opening week back in 2006, and in Japan alone sold through almost 80 percent of its initial shipped units within the first two days. But something to…

5 Essential Dead Rising 4 Tips and Tricks

Dead Rising 4 Tips & Tricks Dead Rising 4 is not an overly difficult game, in fact, according to my “Game Summary” (after I finished the game), I only died three times. Despite this, there is a lot going on in Dead Rising 4 and it’s easy to miss stuff. Heck, I’m confident I’ll probably discover brand new things on my next playthrough! But for now, I’m here to provide you a few useful tips & tricks I discovered during my time with Dead Rising 4. Do you have any tips or tricks for new Dead Rising 4 players? Let us know in the comments section (just try and avoid any big spoilers!). C-C-C-Combo!! Achievement This Achievement requires you to “Get a Hit Streak over 200 then use a Skill Move”. The Hit Streak counter pops up when you start attacking zombies and the Skill Move is preformed by pressing Y+B at the same time when prompted (the prompt is right beside the Hit Streak counter).

10 Hours In, Dead Rising 4 Misses What Made The Earlier Games Great

Dead Rising 4 is the bloodiest the series has gotten. Dead Rising 4 offers a fun zombie-bashing playground, but is not a good Dead Rising game. Advertisement Dead Rising 4 is a sandbox survival game where you explore and fight against massive waves of zombies. You move from case to case, trying to solve a giant conspiracy. You’ll cut down zombies, try to take the best photographs you can, and rescue survivors along the way. Frank West returns, but the intrepid reporter has since washed up. He’s now a subpar college professor with a massive chip on his shoulder. After a turn of events starts a new zombie outbreak in Willamette, the same setting as the original Dead Rising, he rushes off to get the big scoop as well as rescue a former student. Advertisement One of Dead Rising 4‘s biggest problems is tone. At one moment, it will toss up sight gags and quippy one-liners before weaving into a hardcore zombie thriller. The very start of the game leaps into a bloody and hilarious dream sequence where Frank chases his past self while blowing up tons of zombies. It is followed up with sneaky infiltration of a government blacksite…

Dead Rising 4 Review – No Story Coop, No Problem

Dead Rising 4 Review What do you get when you combine Dead Rising 1 with Dead Rising 3? (let me just check my calculator…) The answer is Dead Rising 4. No, this wasn’t just some simple math problem, this is how I believe Capcom Vancouver approached this latest Dead Rising game. They took the protagonist and location from the first Dead Rising, the open world structure of the third Dead Rising, and churned out Frank West’s latest zombie-filled adventure in the town of Willamette, Colorado. It’s an excellent combination and provides one hell of a fun game! The year is 2021 and the zombie outbreak is over; all the citizens have been inoculated with the cure to prevent a new uprising of the undead. But, when our hero, Frank West, and his journalism student, Vick Chu, discover an army base on the outskirts of Willamette, Colorado experimenting on zombies – a new threat is revealed! Flash forward a few months later, Christmas time, and Willamette has once again been over-run by zombies. To make matters worse, the US government is covering it up. ZDC Agent, Brad Park (who you may remember from Dead Rising 3), works with Frank West to…

Capcom Expects Resident Evil 7 to Double Dead Rising 4’s Sales

After reporting their financial results yesterday, Capcom posted a strategy document for the rest of the fiscal year today (ending March 31, 2017), revealing that they plan to “go on the offensive with global release of multiple major titles” and expand digital download sales for new and old titles. Those major titles still to come include Dead Rising 4 in December, Resident Evil 7 biohazard in January 2017, and Monster Hunter XX in March 2017. According to the document, Capcom plans to sell four million copies (physical and digital) of Resident Evil 7 this fiscal year, compared to two million copies each of Dead Rising 4 and Monster Hunter XX. Dead Rising 4 is only releasing on Xbox One and PC this holiday season, but it could come to PlayStation 4 a year later, similar to what Square Enix did with Rise of the Tomb Raider. If the potential Dead Rising 4 PS4 release follows the same path as Tomb Raider, expect the Season Pass DLC to be included. Featuring data accurate as of September 30, 2016, Capcom also updated their list of million sellers. Perhaps the most notable title is Street Fighter V, which is at 1.4 million – the same number reported back in May, meaning sales have been less than 100,000 in the last six months. Capcom originally expected…

Following yesterday’s release of the financial results for the first half of the fiscal year (ended on September 30th), Capcom posted more details about the performance of its games, including the outlook for the rest of the fiscal year (ending on March 31st, 2017). First of all, the company intends to go “on the offensive” by releasing three major titles, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, Dead Rising 4 an Monster Hunter XX. They’re expelled to sell respectively 4 million copies, 2 million copies and 2 million copies, including digital downloads. Below you can see the company’s expectations for sales in for the fiscal year. North America is expected to overtake Japan with 3.5 million copies against 3.4 million. The total of packagedgames sold is forecasted to be 9 million, against 7.5 million full game downloads, for a total of 16.5 million units. The company also plans to release additional content for its mobile and online titles thanks to the release of new content. We also get an overview of the performance of major games during the past half of the fiscal year. Monster Hunter Generations sold 800,000 copies worldwide, and the re-release of Resident Evil 5 sold 500,000 units. Below you can see…


Capcom Reports Decrease in Net Sales Due to Lack of Major Releases

Capcom Co. Ltd. has announced its consolidated business results for the first six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017. The company’s net sales amounted to 28,676 million yen, which is a decrease of 9.4 percent from the same period in the previous year. Operating income was 1,715 million yen (down 39.7 percent from the previous year), and ordinary income was 514 million yen (down 82.2 percent from the previous year). Capcom attributed its financial results to a lack of major releases during the period. “As the launch of major titles will be concentrated in the second half of the year, the majority of titles released during this period were minor or catalog titles,” reads the financial report. We’re told that Monster Hunter Generations and re-releases of titles from the Resident Evil franchise experienced “solid sales” overseas, however. Looking forward, Capcom’s forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017 remains the same as it expects things to pick up when Resident Evil 7 biohazard and Dead Rising 4 are out in the market alongside pachislo machine Monster Hunter Kyoryu Sensen.
