Really hope this means we'll be seeing Volt this coming Wednesday.

Edit: Bleh, just kidding. They said it will be released in July. That's okay too.

Are any of these three worth getting?

Resident Evil Mercenaries.
Devil May Cry 4.
Dead Rising Mobile.

The reviews are quite harsh on the appstore.

I'm stuck on the fence. Can someone push me off please.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

Not sure about RE but provided you understand that DMC and Dead Rising are lackluster compared to their console counterparts and other iOS material you might still enjoy them. Neither are keepers but for $0.99 if you keep your expectations in check it's worth some though.

Dead Rising has a sandbox feel to it and simply consists of roaming around fighting undead. It's flat, graphically challenged, etc but unparalleled in it's aimlessness which can be a nice diversion. I bought it knowing it would suck and was surprised to find some satisfaction in experimenting with poorly caliberated weapons before deleting it.

DMC is short with difficult blunted by unlimited continues and lacks enemy variety. However, jumping around to button mash combo attack fiends is reasonably thrilling until monotony sets in. I deleted it 70% complete because it got boring but with some tweaking there's a reasonable game in there. Although there are better if you really like action games it might be worth a spin.

Stick with Street Fighter IV and Phoenix Wright. I guess Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting would take third place. The rest of Capcom's iOS games are just..lackluster to put it gently.
