Jeffery Simpson : While the team at Capcom Vancouver are hard at work trimming the putting greens and preparing the fairways in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf , there was a sneaky little addition for Steam users in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off The Record this week. We’ve added Steam Trading Cards to both games as an extra bonus for surviving the horror of Fortune City.

The entire Dead Rising franchise is on Steam now, so duct tape some household items together to craft a combo-weapon and join Frank, Chuck and Nick as they take on the zombie apocalypse.

Kellen Haney : Kellen here, sharing the latest from the mega fans of the Mega Man community! Last week , Stephanie shared a cut of her favorite art from Draw Mega Man Day on April 14th. I’m a little biased and think every day should be Draw Mega Man Day, but people’s love of the Blue Bomber results in fan creations of all types, such as this incredible Mega Man cosplay by Clay Stooshnoff ( @atomickings )!

It’s always fun to see how people translate Mega Man’s distinct and instantly recognizable design into the real world. Rock on, Clay!

Patrick Kulikowski : What’s up Breath of Fire fans!? Patrick here, with a special hot new announcement regarding a community-organized fan campaign called #BoFSundays !

Spearheaded by Twitch streamer and speedrunner BOWIEtheHERO with support from the Breath of Fire Facebook / Twitter fan page, BoF fans are encouraged to celebrate Capcom’s JRPG classics every Sunday by way of Twitch playthroughs/speedruns, as well as sharing fan art, swag, game collections, and/or other creative projects on Twitter using hashtag #BoFSundays .

Moving forward, you’ll definitely see me throwing up a couple BoF- related GIFs on Twitter each Sunday. Hope to see lots of participation; I’m itching with hot, fiery anticipation to fill this space with BoF goodness in the future. J
