Capcom Pet of the Month: June

Jun 05, 2024 // David Poole

As Summer approaches, our Capcom Pet of the Month sends their warmest regards!

Meet Tahoe, a 13-year-old Tortoiseshell cat that has seen the unnecessary roughness in the world and has opted for a life of peaceful tranquility. Because of her harmonious morals, Tahoe chooses to subdue her natural instincts as a carnivore and instead prioritizes unity with all beings… which means she shouldn’t be your first choice if you’re looking for a cat to help with pest control.

Always sweet and caring, this senior kitty loves companionship, be it from her humans or even the occasional smaller creatures she comes across. She once gained a companion in the form of a mouse, finding appreciation with her tiny friend to the point that she shared her own food to show her gratitude. Of course, sometimes, a friendship must come to an end, and her rodent companion was eventually taken away from her.

Visibly distraught after the loss of her friend, it took several weeks for her to return to normal. Now she searches for new connections, hoping to find yet another bond to replace the one she had previously formed. Maybe one day she’ll find one, but for now, Tahoe will always have the loving humans that take care of her.

Tune in on the first Wednesday of every month to see the next Capcom Pet of the Month!

Capcom Creators – AAPI Month 2024

May 31, 2024 // Andy Wong

AAPI Month is celebrated every May to reflect and celebrate the importance that Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have had on our history.

Each year, we highlight Capcom Creators who are part of the AAPI community and ask them a series of questions about their cultures and experiences. Let’s hear from them below!

Name:  cakepleaase

Handle: cakepleaase

What are your pronouns? She/Her

What was your first Capcom game? Monster Hunter Tri

What started your content creation journey? My closest friends encouraged me to start streaming during the global pandemic in 2020 since I was living away from my family and friends at the time for school.

What inspires you to make content? My passion for making a difference in the lives surrounding me and my sister Abegail inspires me to create content. If I’ve made someone feel loved and appreciated, I know I’ve done my job right as a content creator!

Why is AAPI representation important in the gaming industry?  AAPI representation is imperative in the gaming industry as AAPI communities have always taken a significant space and represented that gaming is diverse, inspiring various cultural narratives and recognizing creators from all backgrounds. Without AAPI representation, we would not have the creativity and innovativeness we have in the gaming industry today. AAPI representation has undoubtedly shaped gaming communities across the globe by creating inclusion and opportunity rather than exclusion for AAPI people.

In what ways can we uplift and support the AAPI community? Ways to uplift and support the AAPI community is by continuously acknowledging and highlighting the contributions of AAPI communities, creators, and employees in the gaming space by hearing their voices in all aspects of the gaming industry and the stories that connected them to gaming. To be heard is to be seen, and to be seen is to be represented.

————————————————————————–

Name:  HienKong

Handle: HienKong

What are your pronouns? He/Him

What was your first Capcom game? Street Fighter II

What started your content creation journey? I wanted to find a space to show off my art work and show many the skillset I have to offer.

What inspires you to make content? My Friends & Family because they helped push me to becoming an Artist.

Why is AAPI representation important in the gaming industry? I believe AAPI representation is very important because it helps welcome people of that community into the gaming industry and are a valued member.

In what ways can we uplift and support the AAPI community? By letting the AAPI community know their voices are heard and reassure them that they are not an afterthought.

————————————————————————–

Name:  Takoronron

Handle: Takoronron

What are your pronouns? She/her

What was your first Capcom game? Monster Hunter

What started your content creation journey? Pandemic about 3 years ago

What inspires you to make content? To bring a moment of positivity and smiles to all

Why is AAPI representation important in the gaming industry? The diversity.

In what ways can we uplift and support the AAPI community?Appreciate and informing our cultures. And programs like this!

————————————————————————

Name:  Kuya Jaypi

Handle: kuyajaypi

What are your pronouns? He/Him

What was your first Capcom game? Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge

Why is AAPI representation important in the gaming industry? It ensures diversity, cultural authenticity, and market growth, while also empowering AAPI individuals, fostering creativity, and promoting inclusion within gaming communities.

In what ways can we uplift and support the AAPI community? Spotlight AAPI content creators

————————————————————————

Name:  Backlog Battle

Handle: Backlog Battle

What are your pronouns? He/him

What was your first Capcom game? Mega Man 2

What started your content creation journey? This was way back in 2017, but when someone asked me if there were any fun video game news, I noticed that a majority of them were negative. Moreover, I saw so many people around me burning out on games because they were treating it like work! So I started my channel with the goal of leveling up the fun in games and understanding why so many people can have such a diverse reaction and enjoy parts of games that no one else can!

What inspires you to make content? The games that I play! I love the diversity of experiences that video games can offer, and you can really live out some of your dreams in them!

Why is AAPI representation important in the gaming industry? There’s not many Filipino content creators out there, so I wanted to show how passionate Filipinos are when it comes to gaming. There was never a moment growing up that I didn’t find a fellow Filipino who didn’t play video games and I wanted to spread the joy and love that we have with our favorite hobby!

In what ways can we uplift and support the AAPI community? Representation in games is super important these days and there’s very, very few video games that feature Filipino characters. It’d be great to see more Filipinos in games and, better yet, if our legends and myths became part of the larger fantasy realms that exist out there! We have a rich history ripe for storytelling too! I guess this is all to say that it’d be great if we can normalize Filipinos in games – because we’re everywhere!

Capcom Pet of the Month: April 2024

Apr 03, 2024 // David Poole

The new Capcom Pet of the Month is ready to spring into action!

Meet Finnegan, a 1-year-old tabby cat, and also the adopted brother of Dorothy. Sometimes going by Finn, Finny, or “Crazy,” he can be a real handful at times, and he’ll make sure you know that he doesn’t let anything get in his way.

Since he’s still young, Finnegan finds enjoyment in the little things. From cellophane pounce balls to small plastic springs, he can keep himself entertained fairly easily with these. Of course, his true goal is to finally obtain the “Red Dot of Doom” that occasionally shows up and eludes him. One day, perhaps…

When he’s not playing with his cat toys, Finnegan will often be found jumping on his older sister, Dorothy. Of course, that doesn’t mean he’ll ignore you, as he’ll take chances to sneak up and give you a random bite to show that he cares. Unfortunately, he’s not the type to let you pick him up, but he’ll make it up to you by wearing silly outfits and funny hats.

Tune in on the first Wednesday of every month to see the next Capcom Pet of the Month!
