It would be great if done right. But knowing gaming today it would be sold in parts, full of BS DLC and have a tacked on multiplayer mode that nobody asked for

You know what? I am done with Capcom. I am so done that I am not even going to bother asking for anything anymore. They can go to whatever Japanese hell they came from with all this RE2 remake. If they really cared, they'd make a true Resident Evil game for us instead of shoving COD-WANNA-BE RE titles. And I am sure that is not where it ends. It is only a matter of time before we all realize that the DLC they'll try to sell us is already on the disk. Yup, I am calling that!

Lol whats the point of a remake when we can still play the original RE2 from 1.5 decades back. No point wasting resources.

Bought the PC version back when it released, no point buying the game again.

i hope they remake right
i lost so much respect for capcom this gen
the only way for them to get back on track is to remake all successful games they have done in the past
and no i dont mean a hd collection with just upscaling the resolution
i mean a full remake from scratch

How to make a money printer:

1)Remake Resident Evil 2 and 3 like they did with the first game.

2)Do an HD remaster of the RE1 remake(with upgraded textures).

3)Package them together in one collection.

Not gonna happen. It's Capcom. They'll either ruin it by making it action oriented or just don't make it at all and focus on Resident Evil 7-8-9-10-11-12-13...
Irishguy95  +   1232d ago
What about REmake?
-Mika-  +   1233d ago
That would be awesome. I hope when they do remake,They add co-op. That would automatically make it a must buy for me.
Carl_Shocker  +   1233d ago | Well said
"co-op" no
jony_dols  +   1233d ago
If Capcom were to do it in the same way as they did with the RE1 remake on the Gamecube, then my faith in the Japanese gaming industry would be restored!
DarkBlood  +   1233d ago
like shocker said just no

re2 is my favourite in the series i certainly would not want to see co-op slap on to it, it didnt have it then it doesnt need it now

to do so would dramatically change the story
RivetCityGhoul  +   1233d ago
you have got to be a troll. you just mentioned co-op and resident evil 2 in the same sentence LOL. if thats not flame bait then i don't know what is.
NYC_Gamer  +   1233d ago

Might as well buy RE6 since asking for co- op
Biohazard8860  +   1233d ago
SMH add co op you must not be a re fan
Tdmd  +   1232d ago
Since co-op is such an important feature for Resident Evil's new fanbase, Crapcom should implement a gaming mode just for that. Something like mercenaries – some sort of co-op horde mode, without a timer, where you could go through the main campaign stages with a buddy, without story or cutscenes. This way they could really please both ways: the old fanbase would have their story mode unscrewed by forced co-op, and the new fanbase would have their multiplayer fix.
Carl_Shocker  +   1232d ago
Or they could just create a new IP for the new RE audience while the old actual RE fans can finally have a good classic RE game again.

Both audiences would then be happy

But thats logical thinking, Capcom dosen't do that sort of stuff

Tdmd  +   1232d ago

It's almost naive to think of Capcom as ilogical. Resident Evil 5 is the best selling entry in the franchise; It also is the most hated one. What's the lesson here? Brands sells independent of quality. Therefore, to create a whole new ip out of respect for the old fans would not be the logical thing to do, it would be the decent thing instead - and that's what Capcom lacks. Decency, not logic.
And judging from what I saw in those two demo they released, they do need all the brand recognition they can get.
I'm actually hitting the agree button on your commentary even if I know that will probably never happen. They won’t go back to their roots. So, realistically thinking, the least harmful thing they could do is to separate multiplayer co-op from the single player campaign, implementing it in place of the mercenaries mode.

edit: although, on a second thought, that's not me being realistic either.

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1232d ago
Yeah add co-op! More action! more guns! explosions! a cover system! and some boulders to punch!

......or not >_>

If this gets a remake it needs to be like the remake of the original game on the Gamecube.
That game was amazing!
gta2800  +   1232d ago
Not one f'n like! you know why!? cause co-op in Resident Evil games sucks! We want a remake because we want the true Survival Horror Resident Evil back. I want to get sweaty palms from playing RE again. I want to get scared by creepy music while I cut a corner in a dark environment. I want my heart to drop for a quick second when something pops out of nowhere. I want to feel hopeless when I'm running out of ammo and get a huge sigh of relief when I find just one f'n ammo clip. I want to run back and fourth in a huge, monster infested building while I try to solve puzzles to finally get the hell out of there. That's the Resident Evil I remember falling in love with. Bring the real Resident Evil back!

labaronx  +   1233d ago
id love it ......but curious
did they remake 2 like they did part one on the gamecube version of part one

also bring re0 and re1 remake to live and psn
Venox2008  +   1232d ago
I dont think you'll see those 2 on psn because of nintendo, more likely on on wii u eshop
Biohazard8860  +   1233d ago
Remake would be awesome... but to be honest i see capcom fucking this up.
jambola  +   1233d ago
no way
change camera, controls, voice actors but don't add co-op
unless it's a choice
i'm so sick of having partners forced on me.
False-Patriot  +   1232d ago
Back off the classic! They will ruin one of the greatest games...
jambola  +   1232d ago
i would agree but they did so good with re1 that i almost think they should put a lot of focus into remaking games.
Kratoscar2008  +   1232d ago
Well that was before the series turned in a TPS series, now they wont return to the old formula.
SAE  +   1232d ago
let them make it , maybe they will do it right this time if the fans attacked their forums and cleared everything they want to them , that's a way to get what we want :P...

Do we really need a RE remake with chunky, bad controls? I shutter to think.
Skate-AK  +   1232d ago
I don't think they could remake RE1. The way Capcom makes games isnt the same as when they mad RE1. I just dont think it would turn out well.
megamanX2  +   1232d ago
no shi* we only had 20 different versions of resident evil why in the world would anyone want a remake of resident evil again when they can have the sequel.
Der_Kommandant  +   1232d ago
Don't even think about touching it Capcom
NoFanboyRequired  +   1232d ago
If they did what they did for the RE1 remake on the gamecube, i would love for them to touch it. Change up the playing field as they did on the first remake to make it slightly different so its not the exact same route as the original. They did a really good job on the RE1 remake.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1231d ago
Yeah and a few surprises like Lisa Trevor and the crimson heads but some different enemies obviously because it would make no sense if they were in Resident Evil 2.

Bathyj  +   1232d ago
The best in the series, and while I'd love to go back and experience it all again, I dont think I want Capcom raping my memories. I just dont trust them with it.

I think I'd rather just remember it for the great game is was at the time and not have that image tarnished.
MiyagiSPG  +   1232d ago
How about with fan support make RE7 for PS4 LIKE RE2 instead of remaking it, we want new Capcom!

Psycho_Mantis  +   1232d ago
I am so behind this all the way to make sure it sees the light of day! All i ask is that they use a pre rendered back ground, ld style camera angles, true to the same old RE2 in every way and of course add in a few new areas just like REmake.

Would you want an RE2 remake with RE4's perspective? They could add more scenarios to make the game last 16-20 hours, just like RE4's game length.

Answering my own question: I would say yes, if done right.

Now while RE2 is my favorite of the PS1 era', and I'd love to see it happen, until its a definite go im not holding any reserves for it.

"Hirabayashi said gamers can expect additional news regarding the PC version of Resident Evil 6 in near future, but not until the console versions ship next week"

-because it will be dx11, native 2560x1600p support, 3d, 60-120 frames per second, 16x anti aliasing, and cost $10-$20 less than the sub-hd, jaggie, 20 frame per second console versions, so they wanna sell as many inferior $65 copies as they can.

Port RE6 to the Wii-U. Then release the RE remake on the Wii-U store in HD along with RE0 in HD. Then announce RE 2 remake exclusive to the Wii-U. Then use the hype to sell RE Revelations 2 on the 3ds. WIN.

Id be happy with it on anything honestly but imo RE is best on Nintendo platforms these days. REmake rocked. 0 rocked. RE4 rocked. RE Revelations rocked. 5 was alright and was the only recent one not released as a Nin exclusive. Capcom apparantly thinks all PS3/360 owners want guns, explosions, and action. Nintendo gets the classic and retro stuff.
GrahamGolden  +   1232d ago
stupid nintendo fangirl

u would had NOTHING if it wasnt for sony ps1 so less dreaming and more reality

DONT expect EVER a res game to be nintendo exclu
u just got owned for no res6 port on the wii u,crapcom doesnt give a dam

just stick with your marios and the secret of the shiny valley and let the mature games for the mature consoles kkthxbb.

Resident Evil remake is still exclusive to Nintendo, i hope they remake RE2 exclusively for Wii U

"DONT expect EVER a res game to be nintendo exclu"

let's see, REmake. Zero, Revelations are Nintendo exclusives, RE4 was exclusive to until Capcom betrayed Mikami and decided to port it to pc and ps2 "poor graphics btw" and later to X360 ans ps3 FOR MORE $$$....
Unlimax  +   1232d ago
Your Outlook for owners of other platforms is very exasperating !

You Nintendo Owners are so freaking greedy & selfish over resident evil franchise ( Oh I want this .. Oh I want That *o* ) .. just let the world enjoy this amazing game , stop being such a selfish greedy Nintendo owner .. we wish the game to be on all platforms with a Wii U edition !

Hopefully we will see RE1 Remake & Zero being on other platforms soon .. At that moment, we'll see your reaction then !
