$20 Game of the Week: Shadows of the Damned (Xbox 360, PS3)


With yesterday being Halloween, it’s only fitting that we have horror inspired $20GOTW. Produced by Goichi Suda (Killer 7, No More Heroes) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Devil May Cry), scored by Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), and released by EA, Shadows of the Damned is a horror action-shooter that’s barely more than the sum of its parts, however, it’s still a decent game. Playing as demon hunter Garcia Hotspur, you return home to find your girlfriend Paula being kidnapped by a demon named Fleming. Along with your sidekick/weapon Johnson, you travel into hell which resembles a city slum. Players must battle their way through the game’s levels, and can upgrade Johnson to use his weapon abilities. There isn’t much to the game besides some interesting visuals. The gameplay is still solid, and it’s a fun waste of time. While SOTD may not be as psychological as Silent Hill or as esoteric as Killer 7, it’s still an excellent game from two of gaming’s most unique visionaries.

Resident Evil Creator to Get own Action Figure

Seems Shinji Mikami, creator of Capcom’s titular survival horror video game series Resident Evil is getting his own action figure!

At least, that’s what the April Fool’s joke would lead you to believe.

Capcom Unity and reports that several hoax images have been created by Tango Gameworks (who Mikami now works for after having left Capcom a few years back) that feature Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami as a full-blown action figure that comes with accessories such as a shavable beard, a button that launches him into outer space depending on how much praise you give him, and shouts such quotes as “This Armani suit cost an arm ‘n a leg” and “If Shumacher had his own meal, you think he’d call it stewmacher?

Mikami worked on all the Resident Evil games right up until Resident Evil 4, as well has having a hand in producing Devil May Cry (what originally started out as being Resident Evil 4), Dino Crisis, Killer 7 and God Hand.
