Massive Capcom Sale Underway on Xbox Live

Mega Man 10

Xbox 360 owners now have a chance to catch up on the Capcom games they might have missed over the years. I’ve not exactly seen eye-to-eye with the way the company develops and distributes its games as of late, but that doesn’t stop this sale from containing some of the greatest games from the late 2000’s.

Over 20 games have been slashed 50 to 75 percent off the normal price. Check out the full list below.

  • Asura’s Wrath – $9.99
  • Bionic Commando: Rearmed – $4.99
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara – $5.09
  • Darkstalkers Resurrection – $4.94
  • Dead Rising – $6.79
  • Dead Rising 2 – $7.49
  • Dead Rising 2: Off the Record – $6.79
  • Dead Rising 2: Case West – $4.99
  • Dead Rising 2: Case Zero – $2.49
  • Devil May Cry HD Collection – $9.89
  • DmC:Devil May Cry – $14.99
  • DmC: Devil May Cry – Vergil’s Downfall – $4.49
  • DustForce – $4.99
  • Final Fight Double Impact – $3.99
  • Lost Planet 2 – $4.99
  • Lost Planet 3 – $13.59
  • Mega Man 9 – $4.99
  • Mega Man 10 – $4.99
  • Remember Me – $9.99
  • Resident Evil 4 HD – $6.59
  • Resident Evil 5 – $6.59
  • Resident Evil 5 Untold Stories Bundle – $3.95
  • Resident Evil 6 Additional 3-Mode Pack – $4.49
  • Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD – $6.59
  • Resident Evil Revelations – $13.59
  • Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – $11.59
  • Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition – $3.74
  • Street Fighter X Tekken Additional Characters Pack – $4.99
  • Super Puzzle Fighter – $4.99
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD – $5.09

Where to even begin? Despite not being the best HD port in the world, Resident Evil 4 HD is still the best game of the bunch. Its mechanics have been copied by countless imitators since 2005, and yet, none seem to have been able to make a better game out of them. The biggest question is though “Who doesn’t own this game by now?”

Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil Revelations are also really solid entries in the classic series.

You can’t really go wrong with the Devil May Cry HD Collection at that price either. The original game and Devil May Cry 3 are two of the greatest action games ever made, and they bleed with the rough Japanese style that action games simply lack in this carefully calculated world of AAA shooters.

From there, Bionic Commando: Rearmed is a wonderful remake of the NES classic, and both Mega Man 9 and 10 feel like genuine follow-ups to the original 8-bit series. Dead Rising and its sequel are both still quality games, and Asura’s Wrath will at least provide you with a bit of an original spin on action games if nothing else.

The sale is home to plenty of great games that show off what was once so great about Capcom, and this list makes it easy to see why so many people find it hard to move on in these dark ages. Despite a few stinkers, this list is leaving me a little misty eyed with nostalgia. Be sure to spend the late summer weeks with a favorite classic or two before we get stormed with the latest games.
