Great news for the PC gamers: Capcom has decided to announce the release of Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando on PCs this summer in July, all games being optimized for the PC systems and, the cherry on top – all coming with extra features! So yes, we can say that sometimes it’s really worth the wait!
Street Fighter IV, already appreciated and beloved on consoles, will feature customizable graphics (as I have shown you in a previous article) and other new improvements: The PC version of Street Fighter IV will feature online play, higher screen resolutions and three new shaders based on three of the “artistic” trailers released in 2008 that will change the visual appearance of the game: “watercolor,” “posterization” and “sumi-e ink” styles.
As shown in our Resident Evil 5 review, this title is a must play and I am sure that on PCs it will deliver an even better experience. The PC version of Resident Evil 5 will feature online play for co-operative play sessions over the internet and will also take advantage of NVIDIA’s new GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately). Just imagine how cool it will be!
Finally, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan “Rad” Spencer on PCs, transposing the swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original onto a stunning 3D environment. The PC version of Bionic Commando will support higher resolutions than the console version, remappable controls including mouse and keyboard support, support for both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 and online connectivity for multiplayer sessions.
In other words, it will be an indeed hot summer for PC gaming fans! Thanks, Capcom!
