Continuing on with the Capcom news, the company announced last week that it will be launching

long-awaited DLC content for its latest entry in the long-running series, Resident Evil 7. The Gold Edition of the game includes all of the content from the main game in addition to the Banned Footage Vol. 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2, and upcoming End of Zoe downloadable content packs. 

Both the new End of Zoe and free Not a Hero downloadable content will launch on December 12th and will be playable in Playstation VR if you prefer to get close and personal to the horror. You can check out the trailer for this upcoming content beneath.


Is this the return of Resident Evil's Chris? Or is it an imposter?

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. That won't stop me updating the blog though and the latest update is quite a great (and Capcom-centric) one.



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).









Capcom has also shared its most recent story trailer for its upcoming 2-vs-2 tag team fighter, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. You can check this out below.

Newest update shows UNIEL:ST's opening, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite and more

E3 has passed by for this year and we're still soaking up the aftermath. Therefore there is still a great deal of information flowing out from this year's game-centric event held in Los Angeles.

In the meantime, Japanese fighting game developer French Bread has shared the opening for its upcoming release of Under Night In-Birth: Exe-Late ST (hereafter referred to as UNIEL:ST). You can check this out via the video below.


The updated version of French Bread's weapons-based fighter is looking
pretty nice


Capcom has also confirmed more additions to the roster of its upcoming 2-on-2 crossover fighter, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. Gamora, Jedah, Haggar, Nemesis, Frank West and Spiderman will be added to the game's initial roster when it releases in mid-September. You can check out some of the more recent gameplay footage via the videos below.

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


So those are some of the juiciest reveals from this year's E3. The reveals and impressions will be happening throughout the week so do check back for more updates from E3 2017.

An array of game announcements at E3

So the Christmas for gaming annual event, E3, is underway in Los Angeles with some of the industry's biggest publishers holding their own conferences.

Of note were many of the announcements coming from major American games publisher, Bethesda. Among them were the likes of Dishonoured spin-off, End of the Outsider, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and my personal favourite, The Evil Within 2. 

You can check out the trailer for the upcoming sequel to Shinji Mikami's original which saw its release back in October 2014.




Waking up this morning I managed to catch some of publisher Devolver Digital's own conference which appeared to be a result of the presenters all being on some high end drugs. If you want to check out what that was all about, you can do so via the archived stream below.




The next major E3 conference will be Sony's which begins with a pre-show warm-up at 5:00pm PDT (so 1:00am EST for us Brits. Those who're interested may want to have a mild coffee or two later this evening so they don't fall asleep beforehand).

You can check that stream out via any of the links below (I'll try to ratch what I can before I get too tired):

New Street Fighter update adds new DLC character, CFN update, tweaks and more

Hello everyone. I hope you are well and enjoying the blessed great weather this week. To accompany this, read below for the latest fighting game news to come our way.


Firstly Capcom has shared further details about its next update to its front-running fighting title, Street Fighter V. Details over at the Capcom Unity blog reveal that in addition to the newest DLC character, Ed, being added to the game's available roster, a classic throwback stage in homage to Vega's Spanish-set SFII stage will be made available with next Tuesday's update. You can check out a little bit of Vega using the stage's cage fence to scale, then jump from before clawing at SFV's newest entrant below:


Those fence-climbing antics of Vega's
return to Street Fighter once more


The stage will set players back €3.99/£3.29 or 70,000 FM. The throwback Bison Thailand stage will also be getting added back into the game with the new update, costing €3.99/£3.29 or 70,000 FM. The overconfident fist fighter Ed will set you back either £4.99 or 100,000 FM if you want to add him to the game's roster.

Now an ongoing bone of contention has been the small number of means with which to accrue Fight Money in the game. The good news however is that as of May 30th Street Fighter V's new CFN will be made available to all players who download the latest update. This will see a substantial update to SFV's online experience, new balance changes, matchmaking improvements and additional benefits (of which more information can be found right here). 


Bison's potential new body sticking it to the old one in style


The beautiful cherry on top lies in the 50,000 FM bonus for signing in at any point from May 30th - June 13th PST (those dates also apply for European/British players too).

The final mention of the new update is further information on the upcoming targets that will be available for completion by those who have purchased the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Pass. You can find more information about what these entail and what rewards you can obtain from their completion via the handy table below.


Although I think this should be available in the game proper for those who play SFV regularly,
I understand that Capcom needs to make money (this is the company
who re-released Street Fighter II an unfathomable number of time to date after all)


Admittedly this is a huge swell of information for what is surely one of Street Fighter V's biggest updates so far. What do you think of the updates that are coming to the game? Will you be downloading and playing as Ed when he becomes available with the update? And do you think Capcom should do things like sign-in bonuses (and perhaps more double-exp./Fight Money earnings weekends) going forwards? Any thoughts, please do share them in the Comments below. Also like and share this and all my other updates via Facebook, Twitter or your social media network of choice.
