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…

Resident Evil 4 HD’s remaster mod is due out this July

Resident Evil 4 is one of those games I'm happy to call a classic. It was probably my single most played thing on the Gamecube back in the day, and I've re-bought it since for both Wii and PC. While its mechanics may hold up great, it's hard to deny that some of its textures are little more than blurry splotches of colour, owing to…

This great Twitter account collects safe rooms in games

A new-ish Twitter account is collecting the save rooms, bases, shops, quiet zones, and other "safe rooms" from games (well, safe-ish) - places which I'm always happy to visit while playing, and glad to see pop up in my Twitter feed. The Safe Room is almost a safe room itself, a pleasant moment on that punishment of a website. Who doesn't hear the calming Resident…

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…

Watch Resident Evil 4’s Fan-Made HD Edition In Action

A couple fans of Resident Evil 4 who decided to take it upon themselves to fix up the graphics of the game's 2014 Ultimate HD Edition have released a new in-game video showing the latest results of their labour. It's the work of two guys called Cris and Albert, who as we mentioned earlier in the year, have basically outdone the work of Capcom by any…

Resident Evil 4 HD review

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…

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…
