Resident Evil 2’s time-limited ‘1-shot’ demo is live

As far as bad first days at a new job go, you can't really beat Leon Kennedy's - go on, try the new Resident Evil 2 remake demo and tell me I'm wrong. Released somewhat later today than expected, the thirty-minute demo for the upcoming horror rework is live. It weighs in at a hefty 7.2gb download, and expands to slightly larger than that. Grab…

Resident Evil 2 demo coming Thursday, on a timer

The demo of Resident Evil 2's remake will put the squeeze on players beyond the usual 'trapped in a building full of zombies and wall-smashing monsters' tension. Due on January 11th, Capcom's "1-Shot Demo" gives players just half an hour to explore the Raccoon City police headquarters with a mission to complete. Die, and you restart, but the clock keeps on ticking down. Win, and…

Feature: Oh no there are too many games

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…

Feature: Birkin with convention

Resident Evil 2’s remake is like playing with a beloved and battered old toy

I was beaten to death by the bloke with the big eye. If you went through the zombie gauntlet of Resident Evil 2 back in 1998, you will recognise this large, gurgling sod. William Birkin is the zombified antagonist whose pharmaceutical experiments have turned Racoon City into a shambling shantytown. That’s fine. The same experiments also turned him into a bloke with a giant case…

Watch 5 minutes of the gory Resident Evil 2 remake

Do you want to see more of Resident Evil 2’s floppy-haired Leon as he runs away from zombies? Of course you do. After a few years of waiting, Capcom’s gory remake finally made the rounds at E3 this year, and gosh does it look flashy. This isn’t a 20-year-old game with a fresh coat of paint, but rather a proper remake. Point your eyes at…

Resident Evil 2’s swish remake coming in January 2019

Capcom's fancy remake of Resident Evil 2 will launch on January 25th, 2019, they announced tonight. The horrors of Raccoon City are looking fancier than ever in the first trailers and screenshots - do remember that this is a full remake built on the Resident Evil 7 engine, not like most of Capcom's recent halfhearted 'HD' re-releases of other games in the survival horror series.…

Podcast: Remakes, reboots and remasters

Welcome to the freshly relaunched RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show! You might think this is episode 31, but actually it’s episode 1 again. We’re rebooting it, even though we just did that last year. We’ve started by making it more accessible. Instead of three of us chatting about videogames between snippets of jaunty music, there’s just a sad man saying “Sonic the Hedgehog” over…

Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake Stopped By Capcom Request

One way or another, Resident Evil 2 is being remade. Three weeks ago, we peeked at Resident Evil 2 Reborn, a fan project that's been in the works for years and was due to launch this summer. Then, last week, Resident Evil owners Capcom confirmed they have plans for their own official remake. Now, surprise surprise, the fan remake is off.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Is In The Works At Capcom

Remember when I was like, "isn't it weird that a bunch of dudes on the Internet are having to remake Resident Evil 2 themselves instead of Capcom?" The question was posed, the universe agreed, and so the cogwheels turned: Capcom's gonna make a nice lil' Resident Evil 2 remake for y'all to enjoy. Thanks, VideoGamer.com.

Undead: Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake Free This Summer

About 17 years ago, back when most of you were a mere twinkle in yer mom's wombish bits, Capcom released a little zombie game called Resident Evil 2. Now the year 2015, in a time where the weird bulbous character models of yore no longer carry the same value in the eyes of my jaded Millennial peers, the final touches are being made to a…

Can’t Touch This: Resident Evil 2 Remade In UDK

Resident Evil 2 was my favourite of the early Resi games. Sure, its predecessor was the more iconic, and Resident Evil 2 contains not even one Barry Burton or sleeveless vest jacket, but Resident Evil 2 was my Resident Evil. Until Resident Evil 4, of course. So here's something very neat indeed! A fellow Resi 2 fan, Rod Lima, has seen fit to import the game's…
