    Here Comes A New Challenger! The Tobias Funke/Capcom Mashup The Internet Has Been Waiting For

    Yesterday, we were almost giddy over the news that you can now green screen Arrested Development's Tobias Funke (doctor, actor, and the world's first analrapist) into any video through the promotional magic of the new InsertMeAnywhere tool. We were so excited at this development, though, that we actually may have missed one of the other awesome uses for InsertMeAnywhere -- putting the many faces of Tobias Funke to work in video games. Capcom didn't miss a beat, though, and their supercut of Tobias guest-starring in a number of classic Capcom games has officially won Tobias Funke green screens. Well, it's won Round One, anyway.

    Old Nerds Rejoice: Capcom’s Classic Dungeons & Dragons Side-Scrollers Are Getting Console Ports

    In ancient eons past, long lost temples to video games known as "arcades" dotted the landscape, providing video gamers of yore a place in which to gather among like-minded peers, stage competitions to perfect their craft, and pay their tithes to the dark gods they chose to serve, twenty five cents at a time. Every gamer who remembers this Golden Age has a favorite cabinet game that they miss like hell -- one game to rule them all. For a lot of folks, me included, that game is Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara, the side-scrolling beat 'em up that perfected the genre. And now, Shadow Over Mystara and it's predecessor, the also excellent Tower of Doom are getting ported to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network. The king has returned. Let the celebration commence.

    XBLA and PSN to Get Much Weirder With HD Remake of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

    Fans of strangeness for its own sake -- and the  peculiar variety of strangeness endemic to Japanese fighting games -- have cause to celebrate; JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is getting an HD remake for Xbox Live and PSN later this month. For those of you who never played the game in its original release -- and there are a lot of you, no doubt, as I'm one of around three dozen people on the planet who seems to recall this game -- imagine trying to play Darkstalkers while having a seizure. Except that when you win the match, there's a manga-style comic book cut scene and then you're playing a side-scrolling spaceship shooter. It gets odd.

    Epic-Scents To Develop Mega Man Scent, Doing It Wrong

    In all fairness, my knowledge on perfumery comes from this movie, while Epic-Scents has the Bedoukian Research Inc behind it, all 40 years of fragrance development. But the way I see it, they really are going about it the wrong way. If you want to know what Mega Man smells like, you don't ask other people; you play Mega Man.

    Capcom Sees No Difference Between On-Disc “DLC” and Actual DLC

    As anyone who has been regularly playing video games this console generation is aware, downloadable content -- not stellar games or recognizable franchises -- is at the forefront of what will define this generation when we look back on it. The DLC craze, though it obviously generates money for developers, is getting out of control, and just about every gamer knows it. Capcom, however, either thinks gamers are stupid, or the company needs a dictionary regarding what downloadable content should entail.
