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…

Get it here, it's just 321mb, no Unreal games necessary. And no, we won't be announcing every UDK thing that comes along, it's just that this something actually worth spending some…

Unreal Engine 3… Free.

Interesting times indeed. Following the news that Unity3D went free for its indie package, Epic announce that you can now use the Unreal Development kit for non-commercial uses. Crikey. Reading the licentiate details, if you actually want to go commercial it's in exchange for a 25% of revenue after your first $5000. Which is a hefty slice, of course... but considering how much an actual…
