Earlier today, Capcom announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of Resident Evil across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Uh...you might want to duck there, Chris.
mega disappointed about this. They had the option to consider a remake and yet, nope. And also check this out, WII http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Remaster http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... WII http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Remaster http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Look at the backgrounds, they're 16:9 crops of 4:3 aspect. they're cropping it to make it feel like a Remaster.
Holy sh*t that's a disgrace if true. Not entirely surprising though, given the poor treatment RE4 HD got on consoles.
Exactly If that wasn't the case they would have remade re2 or 3 like people have been asking them to do for years. So thanks for the info. I knew something was fishy about this.
oh no i really hyped me up on this. if this is true i just need to get the gamecube remake.. i was planing to do so anyway.
But how you will be able to fit 4:3 picture in 16:9 if u not crop? maybe they should render the whole picture(3D scene) again..to fullfill the mising side-parts..i think they didnt render they fotoshoped gamecube prerendered pictures insted of rendering from the begining
Serious, do any of you guys honestly expected something really special? From CRAPCOM? just because it's a remastered, do you guys really think SCAMCOM would actually go the extra mile like ND with TLoU? Seriously, this reeks like a scam since the announcement!
Even if they are not putting much effort into putting in on new consoles, that should not deter anyone from getting this, especially if you have not played it before. Its the best Resident Evil and only a small percentage of people got to play it because it was exclusive to the Gamecube. Every RE fan should try this game. Its brilliant. EDIT: forgot it was also released for Wii. But still, its an amazing game.
So So let So let me get this str8, we're complaining that game that was originally redone in 2004 and is now redone 10 years later is lzy? Just because they aren't as good a remaster of a game that is a year old and still has the same team/engine/assets in place?. Yea that's a Good way to compare
Garbage; chopped and stretched instead of adding the 'missing' side info. It's hella blurry too if those are legit screenshots. Piss poor effort by these devs. Resident Evil: Unmastered Edition
Crushed blacks: (loss of detail in dark areas) Before: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Unmastered: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Constrast ratio turned up to 11: Before: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... Unmastered: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co...
A Remaster of a Remake. SMH.
We are now in the remaster remastering business, pun duly intended... Regardless, I'll get it when its dirt cheap just to remember the good old days..
I can't say that I'm surprised honestly, it looks like they didn't even make anything new but instead had the higher resolution original assets from the Gamecube version on a server somewhere, and they just decided to release it in a game 12 years later.
Looks good! But I would have preferred RE2, or 3 or Veronica to get the update, HD, Remastered, Super Ultra Remix treatment.
Gotta start somehwere thoguh right?? Why not start at 1 and if it sells well then do 2,3 CV
They're doing this version because it's the least amount of work, all of the backgrounds and character models are the same, they're just using the higher resolution backgrounds that were used during development. I'd expect Resident Evil Zero to get similar treatment before 2 or 3.
16:9 meh! cant wait for this game
a remaster across all those platforms. no way . pointless with a game like this. what a waste of money and time
Easy and cheap to do and will sell bucketloads to those who dont stop moaning they want Resident Evil games like they used to be.. Dont get me wrong I would like it but they don't stop moaning.. Resident Evil has evolved get used to it..
Not all platforms. Oddly enough, despite it being a GCN exclusive back in the day, this isn't coming to a Nintendo console...
I should hope it shows improvements. The Wii version was just the Gamecube version with enhanced controls and possibly 16:9 support and 480p (if the Gamecube version didn't support either of those). At least Capcom has decided that RE4 has had enough remakes and now it is time for another game to get its turn. :P Resident Evil is awesome, and I am glad to see it get a little more love.
You beat me to it sir. I read the title and thought "Ummm, yes?" I mean, I would like to think that between 2 generations would make a big difference...
I have the wii version just to play it on the gamepad using the BC. It is an absolute travesty the Wii U isn't getting this and Nintendo should slap down some money to get it.
Your reply was posted the same time I was making the same point. I fail to see how the Wii U couldnt support the screenshots I have just seen. Looks very similar to revelations which I thought was really good. Nintendo needs to step up for this one. It would sell. If it doesnt come to Wii U i will still buy it.
Capcom is in to dire of straights right now, They need lots of cash and i guarantee nintendo wouldn't give them enough for exclusivity rights.
@Randostar Im not referring to exclusivity rights. Im talking about for a port. MS used to buy ports all the time.
Agreed. This is a GCN game we are talking about. flip, it should run on the 3DS. Then Again, Capcom always gives Nintendo the shaft. The Wii missed out on a bunch of multiplats and the GCN exclusives were soon ported, despite being for Nintendo only. http://www.emuparadise.me/G...
On this note, seriously, where is RE2 or RE3 remakes?
I guess Resi 1 is easier as Resi 2 and 3 pack alot more content, lets hope they do get remasters tho, as they are both enjoyable, hated getting chased by Nemisis, true survival horror right there!
STARS! "Proceed to shit my own pants"
It is probably because this is based off the Gamecube version of the game, rather than the original. To do two and three would be a bigger undertaking. Still I would have liked to see it happen. Hopefully if this is popular they will follow.
Yes! and hopefully Capcom will ignore the gamers saying to not to remake the games and make new games instead, in which they still proceed on doing.
I actually dont remember the Wii version looking that good. But the remaster looks good and should feel like a new experience with addition of better visuals. I dont quite understand why the Wii U didnt get a release on this. Revelations is awesome and looks pretty much exactly what the remaster looks like in these screen shots. Oh well. I will get it on my other system I guess.
I agree with you, but I will be calling both Capcom & Nintendo tomorrow. They will hear my complaint. It's already sucks that all RPGs don't come to the Wii U.
Damn, REmake is still a stunning looking game on the Wii.
Actually I like the softness of the Wii version,why are the textures on the remastered ver. so damn rough to my eyes?? u_U
Crushed blacks. High contrast.
I would hope so, given 8GB GDDR5
Well that title sates the obvious bloody obvious.
I hear that they are bringing the scrolling camera from Resident evil code veronica... If thats true does that mean that none of those backgrounds are pre-rendered?
I'm going to go home and bust out the old cube. It's RE time baby.
why not just remake the graphics
Sorry, but you guys hype to much, comparing the images, that is not a Remake, its just a Port, maybe that how it really looked when developing but in consoles graphics went down... this just look like a 360, ps3 "remake"
That's because it is just the ps3 xbox 360 screens, they haven't released the next gen screens yet.
so are they going to high def the controls or will it be complete shit like the other games.
Another bull sh** remaster. Enhanced textures and lighting. This gen is f'ed so far. You call this a remaster? Remaster the damn graphics like Tomb Raider, the only true remaster so far.
No thanks, bro. Chris and Jill don't need botox injections.
No, they just need PS4/X1 graphics applied to their body. Not texture and lighting bumps that can be achieved on Wii or Wii U.
Pretty hyped. Doesn't look that much better, but this will still be the best thing to happen to RE since the gamecube remakes. Don't care what all you young Call of Evil fans say. Resident Evil 4 was a huge fall in the quality of the series. All the awesome atmosphere was gone, and sorry, but a bunch of Spanish speaking villagers is not scarier than actual zombies(they were especially nonscary and corny if you understand spanish). And the chainsaw burlap sack guy should have been a one off boss. Lazy-a$s capcom. Sooo... the new virus affects some people by making them want to put a potato sack on their heads and grab a chainsaw. Dumbest crap ever. And from there it was even worse, instead of Chris being an average cop stuck in an overwhelming frightening situation, he's a 'roided up superbeing with rocket launchers and tanks and machine guns and craploads of ammo. /rant But yeah, excited to play a good RE game again.
Yeah, they got caught up in the Gears of War hype and started modeling their game characters after the huge husky characters. The same way they did in SF4. Atleast SF4 is still an SF game though, and has some quality to it, and they still have the ability to balance it like a proper fighting game. That's about the only franchise they have left that's worth a damn. They gotta watch out though, cuz if SF x Tekken is any indication of things to come, they may be throwing the main SF series down a flight of stairs soon enough too. Especially with that COO announcing SF5 along with a new pay-for-advantage system. They think they're slick and that it sounds nicer calling it that, instead of pay-2-win, but that's exactly what pay-2-win is (pay-for-advantage).
and the lack of effort of the year award goes to...
And when I said people shouldn't expect much from Capcom I got disagrees.. This really isn't enough for a next-gen release. It's a cash grab. I understand people buying TLOU:Remastered because the game looks gorgeous. This.. Well, it's basically a PS2 game spanning 3 generations of consoles. This isn't enough of an upgrade.
This has made my day, what a random as hell reveal, still have my original GC copy. PS4 ahoy!!
Was this game even on the wii?
That's what I wanted to know. I thought it was only on ps1.
Yes and was originally made for Gamecube about 13 years ago, always looked amazing, even today, I never had a GC so I never got a chance to play it, that is why I am excited to play the remake!
Yeah, the only version I've played is the ps1 version made in '96 so to me the game looks damn good.
Resident Evil 1 was the best! The remake had better graphics (obviously) but it wasn't a classic like the original and directors cut. Wish they would at least try and make RE7 to see once and for all if Capcom still has that magic.
You know this looks great but I just can't play this game again for the third time.
Honestly I don't think they have done anything to the game at all but up the resolution and the AA. I have the game on my Dolphin emulator and the pictures look on par.
Tiny improvements, looks like s***, fixed camera. Go to hell capcom
Shut up and take my bubble!
Were you even alive in '01?
Is this a re release of the Gamecube Version? That was awesome!!!
Speaking of cropping 4:3 to 16:9, Tekken 5 had possibly the worst ever -- character shadows were almost completely cropped. I'm glad I can tolerate the older aspect ratio, even with black bars on the side.
I never got to play either the GC or Wii versions, and always wanted to: in fact, I've been asking for this since the beginning of the 7th generation, so I'm facing a max level hype crisis here! Also, it'll be nice to play as Chris before his super-soldier serum experiment!
Still have my original Playstation and Gamecube copies. This will be great but shouldn't that be Re-Remastered? ;)
Was wishing I had a GameCube again to play REmake but now I'll just get it on a new console.
People seem to be forgetting that there is an option to play the game in its original aspect ratio.
Oddly enough, the wii version looks "spookier" with the lesser color and softer textures.
