Now that’s a good name for a bundle. Mostly because it’s Capcom poking fun at itself for its long names. It’s the second major Capcom bundle, but it has some changes to keep it fresh.
The bundle currently features 10 games with more coming next week.
For $1, we’ve got:
Strider, a side-scrolling action game where you play a sword-wielding ninja of the future. It is, of course, a reboot of the classic arcade games, and a good one at that. One of the most impressive things about the game is just how fluid the combat is. The only note of caution is that it’s actually pretty hard. So go in it expecting a challenge.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Episode 1: Penal Colony is a pretty solid Resident Evil game, at least more so than the last entry to the main series. Unfortunately, this is just the first episode, but the bundle also includes a 40% off coupon for the deluxe edition of the full game, which would in essence run you more than the cost of the bundle.
Lost Planet 3 Complete Pack is the game and all the DLC. Lost Planet 3 isn’t outright bad, but there aren’t many people who’d say it’s good, either. The tepid reception probably helped to put the developer Spark Unlimited out of business.
Bionic Commando: Rearmed is a remake of the classic NES game. It doesn’t take many liberties, and it seems to be true to the original.
The $1 tier seems worth it for Strider alone, if you’re into that sort of thing, or Bionic Commando, if you want to relive a classic. Hey, the other two games are there, though. The next tier, which has a current average of $8.05, is where the real fun begins.
Resident Evil Revelations is the first Revelations game, in HD. Most people agree its better than the sequel, and better than a lot more recent Resident Evil games.
DmC: Devil May Cry – Ninja Theory’s attempt at rebooting Devil May Cry. The general consensus is that despite butchering Dante as a character, the game is quite awesome in a lot of ways.
Resident Evil 4 is many people’s favorite Resident Evil game, and this is the Ultimate HD version that came out in 2014. Worth revisiting if you haven’t played it since its release in 2005, or ever.
Remember Me. Remember Life is Strange? This is what Dontnod did prior to that. The combat is interesting, but not great (probably why Life is Strange forgoes combat all together), but what Remember Me lacks in gameplay, it makes up for in art direction and narrative. The game also features a few memory manipulation scenes that are hands-down awesome.
Then finally, for $15 or more, the bundle concludes with Resident Evil 6 and Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.
Resident Evil 6 seems to be a love or hate game. Well not even love or hate, more like hate or “eh it’s alright.”
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is a great update to a great game. Evidently the port is pretty solid, too. It’s an interesting juxtaposition to DmC at the very least.
Overall, the Humble Capcom Super Turbo HD Remix Rebundle shrines with the beat the average tier, but considering that it’s currently at $8, might be worth spending an extra 7 to get Devil May Cry 4 and Resident Evil 6, plus whatever unlocks next week.
