Resident Evil 4 Remake review: A bolder, Leon-hearted version of a classic, refined in every way

“This time, it can be different.” And that’s okay. In fact, it’s more than OK. Resident Evil 4 Remake has finally caught up with Leon. Just as the Resi 4 protagonist is all grown up when we first see him in the 2005 original, Capcom has finally made a game that reflects how much he’s matured – but that doesn’t mean the camp nature of the original cult classic is lost; it’s merely evolved to be more in line with the series’ tone. The original Resident Evil 4 nudged the series down a more action-oriented path, and after teasing the…

VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.38: The best game you’d never believe was from that developer

Sometimes a game developer just goes off-piste, and the results are wonderful. Welcome to VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast: Episode 38 – The best game you’d never believe was from that developer. Hi-Fi Rush is a joyous cel-shaded rush of a rhythm combat game with a tone and art style not unlike Jet Set Radio, and it’s surprising, because it comes from a studio most widely known for Evil Within, a spiritual follow-up to Resident Evil, and Ghostwire Tokyo, which is sort of like Far Cry: Shibuya via Siren Blood Curse. It’s not the only example of a surprising or…

VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.37: The best game with followers you would never hang out with IRL

NPCs are annoying, needy, and dumb. But unlike your kids, you don’t need to like them. Welcome to VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast: Episode 37 – The best game with followers you would never hang out with IRL. Video Games often, through necessity, make us hang out with people we wouldn’t necessarily want to in any other context.. Looking after rich idiots? Helping demon-possessed adventurers find peace in hell? Chatting with disembodied skulls who have terrible behavioural issues? (it’s amazing how often that last one crops up). NPC followers or party members might be useful in a scrape, usually, but…

Resident Evil 4 Remake features more gruesome combat with Leon’s new degradable knife and stealth kills

It’s time to talk about how combat appears to have evolved in the Resident Evil 4 Remake. I headed on over to Capcom last week and spent a little time with the beginning of the Resident Evil 4 Remake. In the short time I had with the game, which is expected to release on March 23, next year, it appears that quite a bit has changed… for the better. I’ll start by saying that this is still inherently Resident Evil 4. Obviously, I cannot speak for the rest of the game, but as far as Leon’s first rendezvous with the…

Capcom are holding a Resident Evil showcase this week

It’s officially the spooky season now, so that makes it a highly appropriate juncture for some survival horror. Good job that Capcom have announced they’re streaming a Resident Evil showcase this Thursday, October 20th, then. They’ve even roped in Resident Evil Village’s Merchant to narrate the trailer for it. Watch below for a quick look at what’s coming up in the showcase stream. Read more

Resident Evil 6 isn’t a bad game and, 10 years on, I’m grateful for it (even if I don’t like it)

Chris Redfield can’t win me over all the time, I guess. I used to tell people to never mention Resident Evil 5 or 6 in my presence. There wasn’t any real reason, other than the fact that I’d previously felt these games were one big letdown for the whole Resident Evil series. This sentiment is shared by many, but over time – and as of today, 10 years since it was first released – I’ve come to appreciate Resident Evil 6. Even if I can’t get into it. Here’s a throwback to the Resident Evil 6 trailer. I was a…

Netflix throws Resident Evil on the endless pile of shows it’s cancelled

The show has been out for less than two months. If it’s a Netflix show released post-2018 or so, you can probably bet on it being cancelled, and that’s just what has happened to Resident Evil. Another day, another headline that reads ‘Netflix cancels insert show you probably like here,’ this time that particular show being Resident Evil. As reported by Deadline, Netflix has decided against renewing the show for a second season, only a month and a half after it was released on July 14. As noted by Deadline, the show didn’t have a particularly strong showing in Netflix’s…

Netflix’s Resident Evil live-action TV show takes us to New Raccoon City today

Capcom’s survival horror granddaddy of a series Resident Evil is hitting the small screen today, with the arrival of Netflix’s live-action TV adaptation. It’s not spoiling anything to say that Albert Wesker is back, but this time he’s bringing his family along for those bioweapon hijinks he’s known for. It wouldn’t be Resi without some zombie dogs jumping through windows either, as you’ll see in the trailer below. Read more

Dead by Daylight announces second Resident Evil chapter and Attack on Titan crossover

‘Seven minutes. Seven minutes is all I can spare to play with you.’ I didn’t expect to be putting Resident Evil and Attack on Titan in the same headline this morning, but Behaviour Interactive clearly know their audience. Last night, during Dead by Daylight’s sixth anniversary broadcast, BHVR revealed that players can expect to see a second Resident Evil chapter, an Attack on Titan crossover, and a Dead by Daylight-inspired dating sim. During celebrations of the fifth anniversary, the first Resident Evil chapter for Dead by Daylight launched. With it came legends of horror, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine…
