Summer Games Done Quick raises over $3 million for charity

The organisers of speedrunning marathon Games Done Quick have breezed past their previous charity fundraising record, gathering $3,003,889 (£2.4m) across the week-long event. They’d already set their own speed record by hitting $1 million on Thursday – the biggest rush of donations always comes at the end – so it’s a multi-record setting event and all in order to give people medical care. Everyone bask…

Resident Evil 2 mods replace Mr. X with an equally terrifying Thomas The Tank Engine

Replacing all of Skyrim's dragons with Thomas The Tank Engine was all fun and games, but I’m beginning to think we have accidentally unlocked a terrible curse, an urge in the heart of modders everywhere to insert him into more and more games. His latest appearance sees him replacing Mr. X in Resident Evil 2, and I think the horror of being relentlessly pursued may…

Resident Evil 2 brings fresh, free scares in The Ghost Survivors DLC

I refuse to play Resident Evil 2, because I am, proudly, a coward. But if you’re braver than me, there’s now more game, and you can get it for free. The Ghost Survivors takes players into a “what if” universe, offering alternate stories for three pre-existing characters as they try to escape from the biological disaster that befell Raccoon City. All of them are teased…

The quest to make Resident Evil 2 ’19 more like Resident Evil 2 ’98

A hugely impressive reimagining of a classic videogame has been released, so there's only one thing for it - mod it until it's just like the original. Boo, 2019, boo! Take, for example, videos which replace the free-moving over-the-shoulder camera of the brilliant Resident Evil 2 remake with the fixed camera angles of the 1998 original. While I'm very happy with how the remake does…

Resident Evil 2 mod lets you play in first-person mode

The Resident Evil 2 remake is a blood-soaked good 'un. The infested police station and sewers of Raccoon City have been recreated to bring the 1998 zombie romcom kicking and biting into the present day. Among other polishes, it gets rid of those dated fixed camera angles. The good Capcom boys and girls have given us an over-the-shoulder camera while injecting their survival horror classic…

Resident Evil 2 remake adds three more playable characters February 15th

The Resident Evil 2 remake is a lovely thing indeed. A polished, Dead Space-esque re-imagining of a horror classic. Capcom aren't cutting corners on support, either, as there's a chunk of free DLC - The Ghost Survivors - due out on February 15th. It's adding three "what if" scenarios based on three minor characters that never made it out of Raccoon City. Players will be…

Boo! Resident Evil 2 remake out now

Close to midnight, something evil was lurking in the dark: Resident Evil 2 launched. Under the moonlight, players saw a sight that almost stopped their hearts: Capcom's 1998 survival horror game remade with the sheen and glisten that 21 years of technological advancement have brought us. Whether that's something to scream about or not may depend on how much you want a game playing largely…

Resident Evil 2 demo timer can be reset with computer wizardry

If you fancy playing the Resident Evil 2 remake's demo past its 30-minute deadline, good news: canny corpsegnawers have figured out how to reset the timer. It's a little fiddly but if you want to amble around the Raccoon Police Department HQ for longer, exploring or puzzling or popping heads, that is now an option. While the demo is still due to expire at the…

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…

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.…

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…
