A busy week

I apologise for the lack of updates recently. I have had quite a busy time at work recently and have equally been on the go over the weekend. I will be getting back to providing regular updates through September and the following months though, what with Marvel vs Capcom Infinite out this month.

Look forward to my future updates on gaming news and all of entertainment culture here at Honeyman-On.

SFV's newest character, Menat, is now live (30th Anniversary costumes also added with latest update)

Capcom's leading fighting game series, Street Fighter V, receives its newest fighter to the roster with the smooth-moving fortune teller, Menat.



Rose's apprentice with a unique groove,
Menat joins the fray


The apprentice of an Italian fortune teller (most likely Street Fighter Alpha's Rose), Menat uses her crystal ball amidst her regular attacks, allowing those players more technically minded to pull off some fairly interesting combos.

You can check her out (and her Joe Satriani-like character theme) via the trailer below.




Capcom has also added costumes for M. Bison, Guile, Karin and Ibuki to the game to commemorate Street Fighter's 30th Anniversary. They look pretty nice and hopefully Capcom will eventually make costumes to cover the entire existing roster to mark the occasion. They will set you back £3.29 each.







What do you think of the new addition to the cast in Menat? Will you be using her in Street Fighter V? And will you be getting any of the newly added costumes?

I need to assure that I update the blog more often going forwards. That said, the last few weeks have seen me busy with a new job role and being quite social in the later period of summer.

Firstly we have details of new costumes coming to Capcom's leading fighting franchise, Street Fighter. M. Bison, Guile, Ibuki and Karin will all receive new costumes on August 29th, costing £3.29 each. You can check out some screens of them below (thanks Capcom Unity).

Sorry for being gone so long

It has been a few weeks since I've last updated the blog and for that I apologise. There have been a couple of things on the agenda I have had to handle that have taken priority.

Now the house is in order I intend to get back to updating the blog on a regular basis as there is a lot of news to catch up on (and much to look forward to also).

To all my frequent readers, thanks for staying with me. Do look forward to summer exciting updates throughout August.

More information on upcoming titles from E3 2017

As many of you game lovers will be aware, this year's E3 is currently underway at the Los Angeles Convention Centre. Many interesting announcements have already surfaced from this year's event, a few of which you can read about below.


Firstly there's a new trailer for the upcoming crossover fighter Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, showcasing the likes of Dante, Rocket Racoon, Arthur, Nova, Spencer, Dr. Strange, Zero and the mighty Thanos. It shows some of the crossover combo potential available in the game as well as more use of the infinity stones (in this case the Power Stone). You can check this out below.


Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is looking nicer as we near that
mid-September release date. Hopefully it will look even smoother
once it hits physical/online retailers.


Capcom has also been nice enough to make a demo of the game's Story Mode available for download. You can find the demo (which clocks in at 5.7Gb) via the link below:

https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-gb/games/marvel-vs-capcom-infinite-demo/cid=EP0102-CUSA08443_00-DUCKDEMO00000000

Xbox One owners can find the demo here:

Not to be left out, fighting game developer Arc System Works is currently working on a new 2.5D Dragonball fighting game. The new title is a 3-vs-3 fighter using a graphics engine similar to its recent Guiy Gear Xrd titles. You can check the trailer from E3 out for this below.



One things for sure. The game looks very true to the spirit of
the Dragonball series


A recent post over at Bandai Namco's Twitter account also suggests the game will be seeing a closed Beta this Summer on the Xbox One and PS4. It looks like many of us will be fighting many an epic fight or two in a couple of months time.

In another update, Namco Bandai confirmed that Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be getting a release this year on November 10th. A new story-based trailer was shared at E3. You can check this (and all the lovely regional accents) out below.


Lovely as always, Level 5's upcoming sequel is looking
equal parts captivating and charming


Courtesy of Sony's E3 conference we go to see some gameplay footage of Sucker Punch's upcoming Spiderman title. What's good to see is Marvel and the developer caring about producing a great Spiderman title and if the footage is anything to go by, it will be.

You can check Peter Parker's web-slinging antics out that involves villain Mr. Negative via the gameplay video below.


Spiderman swinging around New York, taking goons down
and carrying out superhuman feats. What's not to like?


Finally Sony shared more information on its upcoming reimagining of violent brawling series with Greecian mythical elements, God of War.

This time around it appears Kratos has exchanged the lands of Ancient Greece for a more chilly climate. He also appears to have a son in tow for this journey too (influences of The Last of Us by chance?)

Whatever the case or however arduous the journey, you can check out the latest trailer straight from E3 below.


Santa Monica Studio shows this could be 
the greatest and most involving God of War title yet
