Goat Simulator
Hop into a third-person perspective action game by developer/publisher Coffee Stain Studios where you assume the role of a goat and try to solve every problem by simply head butting it, which is a pretty good way to have some nonsensical fun.

Playing as a quadruped anti-hero through small-town map has its own perks for not having an actual objectives or narrative to follow. Smashing stuffs to get points with new and unexpected surprises every now and then makes it even cooler.

One of the noteworthy inclusions of this collection is undoubtedly beat 'em up platformer game Battletoads of 1991. Some older games have received infinite lives cheat option as well as an autosave progress function for players.

Devil May Cry Comes to Nintendo Switch

Relive the adventure with legendary Dante as original Devil May Cry is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer.

Following release of Devil May Cry 5, many were asking whether or not the game would make it to Nintendo Switch and developer/publisher Capcom has now answered that by announcing Devil May Cry for next-gen Nintendo handheld.

Although DMC5 will not be making it to Switch just yet, original hack and slash action-adventure title of 2001 for PlayStation 2 platform is announced to arrive this summer and all we are waiting for now is an official release date.

Last year, Capcom re-released Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition into one collective bundle as Devil May Cry HD Collection, which sold for $29.99 in retail and mostly received positive feedback from fans.

Whereas DMC HD Collection came offering its original trilogy, Switch version would seemingly be a stand-alone game and that obviously make people wonder why releasing an average priced bundle in other platforms and release only one for Switch!

RELATED: God Eater 3 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Lately, Capcom has been porting Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Onimusha: Warlords and Okami upon realizing its wide audience reach for their popular old-school games. Ports for Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 are to arrive later on May 21.

Nintendo platform has never had a Devil May Cry game so far and its upcoming Switch debut can lead to a possible future when Dante eventually joins roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, according to game director Hideaki Itsuno.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake! Again!

Capcom has been teasing photos on twitter that clearly hint at a very possible remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

In an absolute knocking the ball out of the park move, developer/publisher Capcom has seen a smashing success with their recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake that took newcomers and veterans back to roots of survival horror.

Now that they have delivered fans what they have been wanting for years, the company shifts their focus to next Resident Evil game and they most probably are on board with a Resident Evil 3 Remake according to mysterious tease from social media.

While playing as either Claire Redfield or Leon Kennedy in RE2Make, players enter Raccoon City Police Department at a very early point of their journey into zombie apocalypse and come to a massive hole on a wall even before Mr. X arrives.

With Claire standing next to it, Capcom posted a photo of that wrecked wall that clearly teasing of a stalker enemy.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

After RE2 Remake was officially revealed back at E3 2018, Capcom posted a photo of Nemesis on Twitter a month later on Friday the 13th, comparing to another stalking adversary Jason Voorhees, which led fans to believe it a tease to another remake.

Nemesis provided a unique kind of horror where protagonist character is constantly chased throughout the city blocks by an RPG-wielding unkillable monster, which is hell-bent on eradicating any and every living S.T.A.R.S. member.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.

Street Fighter V In-Game Ads Return

Capcom is bringing back Street Fighter V in-game ads for their partnership deal with Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO.

A while ago developer/publisher Capcom has introduced in-game advertising within Street Fighter V, fifth mainline release from their popular fighting game series Street Fighter and was eventually removed upon negative fan-response.

Of course, people were still skeptical that it may only be a temporary move they pulled off and might return anytime in the foreseeable future. Capcom has brought back that function today to promote a Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO UT.

After collaborating with major video game companies like Blizzard and Nintendo in past, the clothing shop has shifted focus on popular characters of the Street Fighter franchise. Their collection of tees will be mostly comprised of classic victory quotes and screen from SF series.

Their initial design lineup features characters like Akuma, Bison, Cammy, Chun Li, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Guile, Ken, Ryu and Sagat from the 90's legendary arcade game Street Fighter II and current flagship title Street Fighter V.

As part of their partnership program, advertisements are returning once again in exchange for some in-game currency "Fight Money" to allow them, which could otherwise be gained via gameplay but a lot differently this time.

Showing ads on character outfits, loading screens and stages was criticized and heavily rejected by fans saying the feature is ruining the aesthetic of the game that was already troubled with series of issues from when it launched.

However, they are returning to show UNIQLO's logo on Capcom Pro Tour-themed stages and everywhere else they used to, except for the characters this time. Apparently, they have learned a lesson from receiving unwanted fan backlash from last time.
