Shiny Shiny: The Resident Evil 4 HD Project

By Alice O'Connor on January 5th, 2015.

WIP it good.

If I were prone to making rash, sweeping declarations, I might say “Resident Evil 4 is the best action game.” Then I’d hastily add “Wait, maybe this side of Vanquish?” Then “Hang on, what do I mean by ‘action game’?” And “I’m not sure I mean that.” Followed finally by “I shouldn’t have said that.” Let’s settle for: Resident Evil 4 is very good. And now it can be a fair bit prettier, if you want.

The first big release of texture pack RE4 HD Project dropped over Christmas, making over the first section of Capcom’s own HD revamp. The makers are trying so hard to recreate it faithfully, they’re tracking down real-world places and objects Capcom digitised.

Rise & Stream: Watch Us Chatter Over Thief, Resident Evil 4

By Nathan Grayson on March 2nd, 2014.

It’s that time of week again, the strange, giddy twilight between the new week and the old. It gives me strength, allowing me to briefly evolve from my larval news slave form into a full-blown human being with thoughts and feelings and a face. “What should I do with this incredible yet oh-so-fleeting window of opportunity?” I wonder aloud. “Fight crime? Raise money for good causes? Escape from RPS’ dank news basement and finally start a family?” But usually, I just end up playing videogames with a camera on my face. Yes, we’re rather late with this week’s episode due to various complicating factors, but shhhhh, shhhh, it’s all going to be OK now.

This time, Floorlord Hayden Dingman and I are going to jump between Thief, Resident Evil 4 HD, and maybe a little Warehouse and Logistics Simulator because I don’t even know why. We’ll kick off at 6 PM PT/2 AM GMT. Tune in below!

Update: we’re done! You can watch a recording of the whole thing below. Sadly, there was not time for Warehouses or Logistics, but we will venture down that unknowable rabbit hole in the future.

Resi Evil 4 ‘Ultimate HD Edition’ = Like A PC Game From 2007

By Alec Meer on January 21st, 2014.

Or, at least, like a PC game from 2007 should have look. Sadly the 2007 PC port of what’s widely considered Resident Evil’s finest hour was a half-hearted, shonky, perfunctory thing, and today’s announcement of an ‘Ultimate HD’ version should really be interpreted as an apology that’s seven years too late rather than a cause for celebration. Capcom’s new version promises a solid 60 frames per second, ‘a complete visual overhaul’ and the bestest graphics ever for a game originally released in 2005, and which has since been ported to every platform in the world ever and probably a few which don’t exist yet too. Have a look below. It looks decent enough for sure, but yeah, it ain’t hiding its 2007iness.
