Resident Evil 4 fan remaster is almost finished

Capcom were nice enough to release an HD version of Resident Evil 4 back in 2014, but it only really updated the textures of some stuff and not all the stuff, so a team of dedicated fans has spent the last few years picking up the slack. The Resident Evil 4 HD Project has two co-leads who keep updating this personal endeavour, and a near-finished…

Jack and Casie turns Resident Evil 4’s inventory Tetris into an action puzzle

If you've ever played an RPG, you've probably fallen prey to the siren song of pointlessly complex inventory management. Making sure you have exactly what you need, stacked in the most accessible and aesthetically pleasing way possible... and then fifty surplus healing items, because what if you need them? Jack and Casie [official site] is fresh on Kickstarter (but already past its base funding goal)…

Resident Evil 4 HD mod releases Castle overhaul

The Resident Evil 4 HD Project [official site], a hugely impressive fan project painstankingly prettying-up Capcom's classic spooky shooter, has released its overhaul of the Castle chapter. Unlike many 'HD' mods, this one is so faithful to the original look that the makers even track down Spanish buildings that Capcom had photographed for texture bases. It's a cracking update to a smashing game. The modders…

Resident Evil 4 HD Project’s Castle chapter due March

The next chapter of the hugely impressive Resident Evil 4 HD Project [official site] will arrive on March 31st, its makers have announced, overhauling the game's castle areas. This is possibly the best fan-made overhaul I've seen, and certainly goes far beyond Capcom's work in the official HD re-release. Working with unofficial tools, the RE4HD Project's makers have added more 3D detail to the world,…

Have You Played… Resident Evil 4?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Resident Evil 4 [Steam page] is a great game that I resent. I don't resent it because the SAVE THE PRESIDENT'S DAUGHTER PLOT is ridiculous in a way that I find grating rather than enjoyably camp, and I'm perfectly capable of brushing aside…

Resident Evil 7 And The Lure Of Short-Form Horror

Resident Evil 7's [official site] demo, Beginning Hour, isn't available on PC but the final game will be in January 2017. I've played through the demo several times and have some doubts as to how it'd translate into a longer game, but I also think it's the most exciting thing to happen to the horror series since Resident Evil 4. The key to it all…

Shiny Shiny: The Resident Evil 4 HD Project

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…

Wot I Think: Resident Evil 4 HD

The problem with a classic is that it's a classic. The medium doesn't matter – if enough people agree something's great, then discourse around it is reduced to little more than glowing generalisations and snarky counter-thrusts. Some consider Resident Evil 4 one of the best vidyagames ever created; others counter that, good as it may have been, the world has long since moved on from…

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

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…

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

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…

Capcom: Resi 6 Port Will Not Be Treated As ‘Trivial’

It seems like Resident Evil films come out more frequently than Resident Evil games these days, unless I'm ignorant of an Ada Wong visual novel spin-off series that's only playable on digital watches. Capcom don't seem concerned about matching the output of projected vomit though, at least not as far as PC ports are concerned, with Senior VP Christian Svensson stating on the company's official…
