If we start going down this road, where does it end? Let's hope remastered version of remakes - or vice versa - doesn't become another trend.
I'd rather they remake this... remake than make another game in the series right now. I hope this leads to a reboot.
at this point id prefer RE1 remake than any of the new garbage RE games they've been putting out
Have you played the original recently? It doesn't hold up well. The GameCube remake was real nice.
@ Shacks The original is 18 years old lol show me any game that holds up well after that long.
Doing a Remake MULTIPLATFORM, from a Remake EXCLUSIVE ONLY TO Gamecube. Yeah, that's why. Gamecube exclusive stands stil lrpetty good, the graphics and everything is just amazing, but then again, it was exclusive, and lets be honest here, not too many people bought the Gamecube and missed it. This, is a great oportunity to play it (and in a better way) on your console of choice.
yea i bought a wii a couple years ago and played it lol. i think those were such good games cause they were primarily an adventure game with guns instead of a shooter game. also id really love to play RE4 but a proper next gen version not the updated ps2 version thats out there.
if you don't want a remake, don't buy it. simple.
the problem is its a remake of a remake. They could have easily put that effort into RE2 or 3. Remakes for those games is long overdue.
You know what Capcoms like if this does well a 2 or 3 could come eventually it's not like they don't need the money and with the hardware available how hard could it be.
Yeah cause they totally shouldn't actually remake a gamecube exclusive game that has been Nintendo only since 2002....They should have totally just remade 2 and 3 cause who the hell wouldn't want the first one also....Genius your a damn genius... There was a specific reason it was only on Nintendo consoles clearly that ended finally.. Why would they want to see how well this does, before putting all the work and effort it would take to actually remake 2 and 3 from the ground up since they were PS1 games they would require ground up remakes
But, if people just shut up and voted with their wallets we wouldn't have these discussions.
People have been asking for this though... I'd rather take this then RE7 Problem is I'm scared Capcom or going to try and change stuff around in the HD remake which makes it more like RE5/RE6 and more "accessible".
They already said they're keeping it true to the original game for the fans in the interview adding in a 2nd control system that can be switched on/off any time in the menu the same guys did a stellar job with the GC version I see no reason to worry gonna be awesome.
No worries about them changing stuff around. That would involve effort.
I agree Fox, I rather have this too so they might know later how to return to the horror-style of the series, like they used to be in the old days. Better for Capcom to take their time with RE7 :), if it's even coming. Maybe then they can at least make it carefully instead of messing it up again.
A remake of a remake of a remake, yea yea yea... But honestly if I had to choose a new game following the original Resident evil formula then he'll yea I rather a new game, but if it's between a resident evil remake or a new action suspense dead space 3 type of game... man please give me a remake of the last of us resident evil tombraider halo and every other proven classic game released, wether it's a old or recent classic.. While I'm at it give me a uncharted trilogy, beyond 2 souls, heavy rain, heavenlly sword, south park stick of truth and a gears of war trilogy remaster aswell!!!
its not a remake of a remake dumb**s, its a remake
REmake is a remake of the original Resident Evil. Try again.
actually this isnt a remake more of a re-release port with minor graphical improvements, remake would be changing many assets
Remaking remakes....Eat your heart out Hollywood
If the hardware keeps improving what is the problem of remaking the game again? We do it for movies and music all the time. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy the game over. The problem with Capcom is they have yet to improve the series since #4. So as others have said, maybe a reboot is needed.
Wanna know what's more annoying than remakes? People bitching about remakes.
We do remakes of remakes on here with the articles that are written at least with Resident Evil it's actually something that a lot of people want unlike the click bait trash were subjected to on here daily just give it a rest and let people enjoy being a gamer not everything has a bad side to it.
i'm pretty sure it's a remaster, not a remake
This is actually one game I would by over and over again as long as they kept it true to the original. I'm hoping they add a little just to change it up a bit but that's it. Give me a much prettier picture using the same paint for this one.
I have no problem with these remakes. They help reintroduce the classics to people that weren't fortunate enough to play them. If you don't like it, don't buy it.
I agree, stop dwelling on the past, make new games or enteries in the series.
Really? You really want RE7 after what they did to 6?...
I don't see what the problem is. The last RE remake was only released on Gamecube, so anyone who didn't own that system (which is a large amount) was unable to play the game. And unlike TLOU or GTAV, this game came out several years ago, so it actually makes sense to remake it again for a new generation. Remakes of remakes have been going on since DVD and Blu_Ray were introduced yet, these pretentious journalists act like this is some new trend or something.
So if this remake actually does well sales wise...then does that fact disprove or say anything at all about the argument being made in this article?
just like lots of things these days. everything sounds the same. very few have original thoughts anymore. Rinse & Repeat
Technically it's a remaster of a remake.
How to get it early. Download dolphin emu + resident evil remake run it at 1080 or higher. connect a controller done
It's and HD Remaster... You don't even need a dictionary! Just go to google and search the difference. Remaster=/=Remake You're blessed with this great innovation called the Internet. USE IT! For crying out loud...
It's a remaster of a remake... and irony of no Wii U announcement.
We know the story, the endings, the puzzles and boss fights. Why the hell would anyone want to play it again? You already know what's happening. Idiots will buy it though, especially the ones on this site supporting this crap.
Capcom knows it as well.
It's a remaster not remake
Shinji Mikami must be laughing his ass off. he's releasing Evil Within, while the company he gladly left is releasing a remastered version of his old game. the game runs perfectly on a Wii threw component cable. And who the hell asked for this anyway?
Because we have no faith in RE7. Might as well get remakes of 1, 2, and 3. Nostalgia in our pants one last time before 7 commits franchise suicide and Capcom buries the series for 15 years.
But Capcom might get the last laugh if The Evil Within flops, justifying the direction they went with RE5 and 6. <And who the hell asked for this anyway?> Stuck-in-the-5th-generation gamers.
I hope your wrong dude , but you do make a good point. Capcom is like the Parent that say they will show up for your special day and always bails, lets take Deep Down for example , as much as i dont want the game to flop, i just know it will . People have faith in them but they can never deliver, so now they hire out of house to take the flak away from them. But i have to say , Mikami made an amazing franchise and i hope he kills it with Evil Within.
I'd rather take this than any new crap Capcom pumps out. Their track record has been a mess as of late except for Monster Hunter. Other than that only rereleases of their old games have been successful.
After Street Fighter X Tekken scenario, I'm surprised people still trust Capcom.
This is a remastered version, not remake. Of all the RE1 releases, there is just 1 remake, the others are ports.
I've never played it might be a good time to start.
It's a remaster, not a remake Damn, i though gaming journalist knew the different between "remaster" and "remake"
This is awesome to get a all new generation of gamers to experience the true Resident evil experience i can't wait til this releases the game is a masterpiece of survival horror finally its coming out for more platforms the nintendo exclusivity was not getting it sales at all, I bet this is a testing ground for more Survival horror like RE games maybe if this does well we shall get the long wanted RE2 REmake! :)
put resident evil remake gamecube version on wii u eshop for $10 id be happy. I would not pay any more. I dont care if its in HD or not.
