resident-evil-5Just as I’ve promised yesterday, this first week of 2009 is the week of stats and lists and Capcom is the first company we’re going to talk about. Actually, we’re going to talk more about their impressive 2009 games lineup for the first half of the year. Because they do have a few titles to grant them a great start of the year. Check them out below!

Flock! – a little downloadable game that will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in which players will control an UFO tasked with herding animals to the mothership. Capcom promises that Flock! will deliver us a never seen before puzzle experience. We’ll see for ourselves soon enough.

Street Fighter IV – one of the most anticipated fighting games ever, the fourth in the beloved franchise will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles on February 20. Also, Capcom plans to release the PC version later this year, so everybody will be happy.

Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop, the Nintendo Wii zombie slayer will hit retail shelves on February 27. The remake of the popular Xbox 360 title comes with brand new mechanics but promises to keep the humor level as high as the original game did. Is the casual audience of the Wii ready for a gory game?

If the answer is “No”, then Neopets Puzzle Adventure could be the perfect alternative. The game will be released on the same day as Dead Rising (February 27) but not for Wii only – Nintendo DS and PC owners will get a chance to try the game too. For those who don’t know, Neopets Puzzle Adventure brings virtual animals to life in over 150 in-game quests. The youngsters will certainly love it!

And while the youngsters are busy playing Neopets, adults will enjoy the thrilling experience of Resident Evil 5, coming Friday, 13th of March 2009. With the debut of co-op play and the introduction of other innovations to the series, Resident Evil 5 promises to set a new standard in action and horror gaming.

Also scheduled for release in March is MotoGP for the Nintendo Wii. Due to hit retail to coincide with the pre-season activity for the 2009 MotoGP season, the title turns the Wii remote into a set of virtual handlebars as players compete across the three race classes in single races, a full championship or a series of challenge stages

Completing this impressive line up is Bionic Commando, the first true sequel to the retro classic with an injection of next gen power. The game will be initially available for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners, but a PC version will follow shortly.
