  1. Cuphead captured the hearts of gamers around the world when it released during the tail end of 2017. The distinctive, early animation art style in particular caught the attention of artists and fans, which has lead to an incredible partnership between the game's developer, Studio MDHR, and the incredible illustrator Uki Hayashi. With the help of Bottleneck Gallery, a number of illustrated prints have been made for sale that meld the game's wonderful aesthetic with Hayashi's unmistakably Japanese stylings. The print collection has been put togehter to pay homage to the Japanese titles that inspired Cuphead, the indelible classics that many continue to hold up today as gold standards for gameplay and aesthetic. Cuphead took the finely balanced side-scrolling shooting from games like Contra and combined it with jaw-dropping visuals, garnering almost universal acclaim. Three unique prints have been made by Uki Hayashi and been made available through Bottleneck Gallery. Each Giclee print sells for either $40 or $50 and, though there are three basic designs, each one has a color variant that plays with and changes the use of white in each design. You can view the full collection on Bottleneck Gallery's site. Bottleneck Gallery hosts a variety of contemporary art and artists. It makes an effort to provide space to both new and well-known artists for events intended to build up the local community and benefit charity. It also focuses on bringing unique and interesting pieces of pop culture art to the masses with works ranging from Bob's Burgers enamel pins to incredible artistic renderings of iconic moments in cartoons, blockbuster movies, and more. Some mainstream critics maintain that Cuphead was one of if not the hardest games they have ever played. Despite that, or maybe because of it, Cuphead received some of the highest awards and scores outlets could bestow on a game, helping to propel the indie game's success around the world. Now, Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch tomorrow, April 18. Maybe it's a good time to pick up a cool art print while buying the game for the first, second, or third time? Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. Capcom aims to hit 2018 with all the nostalgia it can muster for the Blue Bomber's resurgence. Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2, which we reported on last year, will be hitting the PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One this summer as part of the 30th anniversary of Mega Man. Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 will include Mega Man X, X2, X3, and X4 while the second collection will feature X5, X6, X7, and X8. Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 and 2 have received something of a remaster treatment from Capcom. The retro games all have cleaned up sprites with or without smoothing and CRT filters that the developers have included. X7 and X8, games that took the X series into 3D, have been given a new coat of paint to provide the best visual experience while remaining true to the original games. Each game can be played in its original resolution, full screen with the original aspect ratio, or in widescreen. Both collections contain a slew of goodies that fans of the series might find really interesting. Both collections include The Day of Σ, a short video that was shipped with Maverick Hunter X (a remake of Mega Man X for the PSP) and details the origins of Sigma and his chaotic legion of robotic Mavericks, serving as something of a prelude to the events in Mega Man X. Each collection also includes a digital museum full of Mega Man X history including hi-res trailers for each game in the series. Each collection also comes with a soundtrack that encompasses the soundscape of each game in the series (along with a few Collection specific tunes and remixes). A challenge mode called X Challenge will also be included in the X Legacy Collections. The mode tests the mettle of Mega Man fanatics by putting them up against two bosses at a time armed with up to three bonus weapons. The boss rush mode will include online leaderboards for players to compare times and vie for high scores. Both Mega Man X Legacy Collections will release on July 24. A retail bundle that includes both will be available on Xbox One, PS4, and Switch. The version for Xbox One and PS4 will include discs for both collections while the Switch version will have a cartridge for the first collection and a digital code for the second. All of this will help Capcom build hype for Mega Man 11 which releases later this summer. View full article

  5. Shovel Knight released to critical acclaim and financial success in 2014, becoming one of the most noteworthy indie darlings of the year for its retro aesthetic, tight controls, and boppin' soundtrack (yeah, boppin' - I said it). The DLC campaign Plague of Shadows followed in 2015. The new campaign allowed players to take on the mantle of Plague Knight, one of Shovel Knight's antagonists. Yacht Club Games revealed their next game in that retro platforming world at The Game Awards 2016: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. The new side-scrolling platformer has been created from the ground up to play differently than the original Shovel Knight. It follows the quest of Specter Knight to assemble the Order Of No Quarter, the league of knights who allied themselves with the evil Enchantress from the original Shovel Knight. Because Yacht Club Games started from scratch to create Specter of Torment, fans can expect to encounter new everything. The game will look different, sound different, and play different. While Shovel Knight was clearly a homage to Mega Man, Specter of Torment seems to be Mega Man-meets-Castlevania. Much of the gameplay seems based around movement and melee combat. The influence seems to extend to the soundtrack and visuals, too, which adopt more gothic, tones. Players can expect to get their hands on Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment when it releases Spring 2017. Yacht Club Games is also planning to release a campaign focused around King Knight sometime after, though details on that are scarce. Like Plague of Shadows, both Specter of Torment and the campaign for King Knight will be free updates for those who have purchased the base Shovel Knight game.
