It's a step in the right direction for Capcom and Resident Evil as a series hopefully im still buzzin over the remaster news i've wanted this for a long long time.

Yes, hopefully they release what kind of Resident Evil fans want. I am not a fan of punching boulders.

Would this be the 2nd remaster of the original game? you had the original on PS1 and Saturn, then it was remastered for the Gamecube. It was also ported to the DS (not a bad port by the way). And now this.

It's like a movie that gets released, then several years later it gets remade and another several years it gets remade again.

Hopefully the remaster will sell well so that Capcom will realize that many gamers ARE still interested in horror games.

They have my money on this one!!!!

Next game, Resident Evil Zero HD

They'd have to thaw Billy Coen out of deep freeze.

It's just Capcom milking games.

I don't understand why it has been met with such positive reactions.

Agent20091256d ago

Because not many people had a Gamecube/Wii to actually play the game? Because it's been more than 10 years since the original release, and it's a reasonable time to make an HD remaster of one of the best Resident Evil games that ever came out?

scark921256d ago

That is why I am excited

Hold_It1256d ago

It is met with postive reactive due to the fact that the new "Resident Evil" games are complete rubbish. It has been shown not only by sales but by the true Resident Evil fans.

For once they are doing something right, and the sales of this remaster will determine the future of the series. Hopefully they break away from the Gears of War gameplay and go back to being clunky, full of jump scares and limited ammo with insane backtracking.

It's just you being angry that Resident Evil is popular, I think.

Knushwood Butt1255d ago

I have the original game via PSN, which I can play on PSP, PS3, and Vita. Also played through the GC remake back in the day.

No anger, but no excitement either.

Having said that, I never bought 5 as I didn't like the demo, and 6 looked even worse; never played it in any form.

I'd rather they remake 2; I have it but have never really played it. Maybe that will be inevitable if Capcom sense some easy cash.

Revengeance1256d ago

The sad part is their classics all the way up to early 2000s are still better than any of the new games they've put out in the past several years except for maybe SF4, RE4 and UMvC3.

Don't get me wrong I'm still getting this and any other remasters they do but it's sad when their new games are so bad their rereleases are what's going to be keeping them afloat.
