It appears that the fan-made remake of Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 2 Reborn, forced Capcom to officially reveal interest in remaking it.
Make the remake in the same way you did the original RE on GC (and other systems) and I will be a fan. In all honesty I would rather see a remake of this series than a RE 7. As long as they keep the original concept of RE 2 in the mind for the remake and don't make it an action game.
While i totally understand what both of you are saying, I can't say it would really work... nostalgia does funny things. Have either of you played RE2 recently (not an accusation, just a question)...I actually did, still have my PS1 copy that works in my PS3. This drought of games on what seems like all platforms does that occasionally... and it wasn't what i 'remembered'...by that i mean I could still recognize why its one of my all time favorite games...but I can't lie that it felt EXTREMELY dated in mechanics...So much so that i sort of began to realize that RE1 and 2 introduced things that i actually despise now. The only reason those games were scary was because you felt so vulnerable. As a kid, and without ever playing a game that handled in a 'modern' sense, i never realized that vulnerability wasn't coming from the violence or theme of the game, but from a complete shat set of abilities and movement...and even those same mechanics started to etch at the success and popularity of franchise games that came after, that did mostly the same stuff...until RE4 completely flipped everything on its head... All i'm saying is that an RE2 remake in the style of the GC's RE1 version...will probably only work for extremely 'old' fans that enjoyed the original and would love a new coat of paint...most 'modern' gamers were barely alive when RE2 released, let alone actually experienced it when there was nothing like it...and they'd give those tank controls about...6 minutes...yet, if you update and take those controls away and modernize them...the entire essence of the game is removed... the horror genre needs something major...and i honestly don't think it'll happen until VR gains some serious momentum...and that remains an if, as VR isn't something that can be sold through word of mouth or youtube videos...
@Kleptic: I actually played RE 1, 2, 3 and Code Veronica recently. I don't understand your "dated" argument when applied to a nearly 20 year old game. I don't expect any of the old RE's to play like anything other than how I remember them. I'd only apply a "dated" argument to a new game with old ass mechanics. The old mechanics in the RE games are part of the nostalgia in my opinion. Another example would be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES. Probably some of the worst controls I have ever come across in my time playing games. I still wouldn't want it changed though. It's helps retain the challenging aspect of the game I remember as a five year old.
^did you play RE at release, or sometime in that timeframe? I guess what i really mean is did you play RE2 before RE4? we're actually in agreement...i didn't mean the controls were dated in a bad way, and i agree they're entirely part of the nostalgia...I don't like mechanics like that any more, but only because innovation in gaming made it that way...and i hate it when a game tries to force vulnerability or fear on you just because of limited controls that don't make sense...they made sense in RE1 and RE2, there had never been an alternative to suggest otherwise... i'm more saying those controls, pacing, camera angles, etc...can't be changed...that game won't be that game without them...but at the same time, that game only works for people that played it before there was any alternative...which, imo, is far from the case anymore... even capcom admitted that RE4 and all its success...made it very difficult to get back to the franchises origins...and they haven't successfully done it yet...I mean, i guess they could attempt some over the shoulder complete rework of the entire RE2 world...and it would have some fan fare while being a more modern take on everything...but i still don't think that would end up as decent as it sounds on paper...hence the 'asking us' about all this...if it was a good idea, it would just happen...thats how it should work, anyway...
Agreed. They trash that series, want to just see remakes of the last REs, I get they need to make RE7 to make lots of money, but I only want RE7 to do well to fund RE2-Code Veronica Port lol Watch RE2 remake get revealed and a bunch of gray dudes are shooting at you!!!
i don't think they make RE 2 Make an action game. 1. it would be more cost than Remake,0 Style 2. what the point make RE 2 Make an action game if RE 4 onward going action-oriented route ?
@Gant- I don't either and I'm pretty sure we all know a remake and remaster are not the same thing. Now I don't feel RE2 will be a full on action game, but its not out of the realm of possibility, consider the way the series is going now.
its possible RE 2 Make have some action moment (Cutscene,Boss Fight etc etc) but full blow action i don't think so ? PS. i don't mind if capcom add dodge system from RE 3
i don't see why people think Resi 2 is a good idea. Capcom isn't the same company it was when it created the first Resi remake and they don't have Mikami who made that game so good and tbh even Mikami isn't as good as he used to be because Evil Within was average at best. Resi 2 remake should have happened 10 years ago after they finished Resi remake.
They just have to remake it like they remade the first one Try and change it by modernizing it like the new games and they'll ruin it Oh and they also need to add a Mercenary Mode again with a no time limit option Find it funny though they are only now interested in listening to us since that fan remake is gaining interest. I wonder if they might consider adding together Resident Evil 2 and 3 since they happen at the same time.
Was just reading this on FB and thought it was a fake page.But nope its the real deal. Just don't screw up Capcom.
Plz do! We all want it!!!
Capcom I shall refer you to the recent Final Fantasy 7 reaction by the gaming community, now it's simple, so the same with Resident Evil 2 without the tacky movie matrix style crap.
How greedy is capcom? do they really have to ask people's opinion just for a remake? It's not like they're investing tens of millions into a new risky IP..god
tsuna not here,haru.
But if they make REmake 2 then it would cost millions to make
Yes. Yes. Yes.
But Capcom .. people has been voicing their opinions about the remake since 13 years in forums polls petitions magazines and even in public so why do you even have to ask them NOW if you already make a poll about that in 2012 ( http://www.capcom-unity.com... ) , what took you so long to realize that .. do you really care about your fans or was the FF7 remake announcement has an impact on you ?
i bet they show trailer on TGS 2016 or E3 2017.
Asks gamers opinion? We said 1000 times that we want remake of RE2,,don't ask me again just do it :P
I swear this gen is backwards...ppl want a remake of a game over a new one.... Dont get me wrong i LOVE LOVE LOVE RE2 to death it was the reason i bought a playstation..but havent we had too many remakes so far? ? I want new games and experiences of my next gen console not old games despite the nostalgic value...now a collection of RE games 123 and code veronca would be much better... But that just my opinion
im geting sick of these resident evil remakes all the time make resident evil 7
"im geting sick of these resident evil remakes" I'm sick of gamers that have no clue about game development. RE 2002 was NOT a remake, RE Zero remaster IS NOT A REMAKE! The team that did those 2 games IS NOT THE MAIN RE team! Re 2002 remaster and RE Zero RE Revelations 1 and 2 RE6 and 7 ....not the same teams, 3 to 4 different teams do the RE games, RE7 has been being made for several years now, the main RE team did not do those remasters and didn't do Revelations, a separate team does Revelations and those remasters. What RE game got remade? lol Know your game development, know who makes your games.
what does any of that have to do with anything? you're just flipping out about definitions... all drewskey seems to be saying...is for capcom to SHUT UP about rereleases/remasters/remakes/s uperHDclassicupdates/streetfig h terbetasthatarebroken and release a RE game that we haven't seen before in one way or another... know your publisher, know your marketing all these 'teams' you speak so highly of are mostly the same people with different business cards depending on what day it is...stop acting like Capcom has any honor whatsoever; they're the Eastern equivalent of EA...have been for years...at least Konami had the dignity to basically say 'we really don't care about gaming, at all'...Capcom continues to ask for fan feedback, and then go in dry...
@Kelp- Not really. Not knowing about the structure of their studios is why this person seems to be getting um "sick of these resident evil remakes" Yet stating "the time to make resident evil 7". Those studios don't make RE7..... The games he is um "sick" of are not made by the main RE team, they have nothing to do with RE7. That is like getting mad at Naughty Dog and saying your mad about Uncharted Collection....... Sooooo your telling me you don't know who makes those ports? Capcom is not 1 team. I'm not sure why many seem to have no clue about who makes the games they play. Could they not do both? LMFAO! What is them doing a remake have anything to do with RE7? That is like saying MCC has to do with Halo 5 not coming out sooner yet disregarding that other studios besides 343 worked on MCC (United Front Games) Sooo even if he is saying he is um "sick" of RE Remakes, I'm not fully understanding what that has to do with RE7. I'm sorry but it sounds like he merely knows not of what he speaks. "and release a RE game that we haven't seen before in one way or another" When don't they? You do know ports are not made the same way ground up games are made right? Revelations 2 took longer to make then RE2002 remaster and RE Zero remaster... They are not made the same way, not made by the same people, they have nothing to do with ground up games. Again...is Uncharted Collection hurting Uncharted 4? Is MCC stopping Halo 5? Is God OF War III hurting God Of War IV? Gears Ultimate hurting Gears 4? I mean...I can't stop laughing, your just as clueless as he is, THEY ARE NOT MADE BY THE SAME PEOPLE, its not a either or, they are doing BOTH! AAA games take LONGER to make then ports or remasters. Again...what does RE7 have to do with RE2's remake? Hell even FFVII remake isn't being made by the main FF team OR the main KH team. RE has been confirmed by Revelations director to be dividing the series, from the horror to the more action based. Revelations 1 and 2 was NOT made by the main RE team... http://residentevil.com.br/... The remakes where not made by the main RE team lol Your worried about RE7? Well first know who is actuality making RE7... You might as well get in line with those who think Uncharted Collection is done by Naughty Dog.
make resident evil 7
Still in Development
Nah, Resident 7 is what Capcom should be putting their resource into.
Soooooo your not aware that they have several teams that make RE? Stand back folks, brand new, young gamer coming! lol The team that is doing RE Zero, RE Revelations 2, RE7......all not the same teams. They do not just have 1 team that makes RE games, they very much could be doing a RE2 remake right now with one of their teams along with the main RE team making RE7 soooo
a very interested sociological situation: A seemingly older consumer calling out and degrading a 'younger' consumer...only for questioning a product publisher's method of possibly selling a piece of content to someone...twice...in which case the alleged younger consumer feels that the best course of action, from a consumer standpoint, is to TAKE THE RISK AND PUT AS MUCH MONEY INTO THE NEW PRODUCT AND MAKE IT AS GREAT AS POSSIBLE...AND TO STOP WASTING MONEY ON CHEAP RISK FREE REMAKES Ed, be an adult...there is ZERO argument that dropping all this remake stuff, salary on x number of port teams, and whatever marketing is involved...would somehow hurt the actual development of RE7...yet there is substantial evidence that pooling all those wasted resources into RE7 development...would help...'things' that are being made tend to be better when more money is available during production... if you're a capcom shareholder, then i get it...of course you don't want them putting all bets on one title, when they could cut its budget down, spread that out to other 'teams', and have some remade safe bets to sleep on...but otherwise, you're blatantly 'not getting it', and are part of the problem with all this remake bs...
@Klep- That was a waste of a post... They can do both. RE Zero and RE4 where not made by the same team... The main RE main team has done the main RE's since RE4 and clearly prior to RE Zero, the RE ports are not done by the main RE teams.. RE Revelations 1 and 2 where not made by the main RE team, RE Zero and RE 2002 remaster are not being done by the main RE team.. Did you not factor they can and have been doing both? ooooorrrr did you think it was strange that RE 2002's remaster came out in Jan 2015, yet the retail version of RE Revelations 2 came out in March 2015 LMFAO! I mean....are you so slow as to think that the same team just made that game in mere months ooooorr? Lol Do you not get they are not the same teams? https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... https://en.wikipedia.org/wi... Look at the dates bud, hell look at the credits lol, they are NOT THE SAME TEAMS! Zero is being done by a team that is not making the next RE, they are not even doing the Revelations series. Remastered REs Revelations main REs... All different teams. Outbreak was done by a different team, not the main RE team, Chronicles the light gun RE on Wii, by a different team, Operation Raccoon City....BY A DIFFERENT TEAM. Soooo who the hell said do a port or remake or remaster what ever INSTEAD OF A MAIN GAME? Why? They have the teams to do BOTH as they are currently DOING BOTH! But with your logic you likely feel (then why don't we have RE7 being made in 1 year?) Ports are faster to make then ground up games bud ie MCC collection before Halo 5, Gears Ultimate before Gears 4, God of war III before even IV's reveal, Uncharted collection before Uncharted 4.. They are made FASTER then ground up games. Who again said instead of? They have done both in the past, they can do both right now and they are currently doing both right now as the main RE team has NOT produced work as of yet, those ports are not even being done by the main RE team.... Sad. Mind you, the simple fact that the main RE team has been ghost since RE6 release is enough to sorta guess they are doing RE7 right now. http://www.destructoid.com/... and http://www.gamespot.com/art...
@ Klep- ".yet there is substantial evidence that pooling all those wasted resources into RE7" LMFAO! Sure bud, RE6's 600 man team would like to have a word with you. Mind you, with that epic team...RE6 still failed, they STILL MADE ports and Revelations! Soooo I'm not sure just stopping all projects and making some mega team will make it go faster or better. Also, Assassins Creeds 1000 man team that worked on Unity from 2010 to 2014 would like to have a word with you too. Strange....yet we STILL got AC's from that time? I wonder why? Maybe GEEEE its because they have more then 1 team... You don't say... Maybe those teams working on AC's helped fund Unities development....maybe they can do both and are currently doing both lolz. I don't know where you got that it should be either or, game development takes time bud, ports have nothing to do with that. That is like saying for Bluepoint games to work on Uncharted 4 as if that was what they where hired to do LMFAO! It cost about 1 million to do a port....it could cost up to 100 million to do a full game AAA. You sure that 1 million would have JUMPED RE7 to this years release or something? You really sure bud? http://www.gamesindustry.bi... and http://www.engadget.com/201... Mind you, I'm pretty sure RE6 cost Capcom much more money to make then Heavy Rain.. http://www.gamespot.com/art... The issue with remakes has more to do with those that are so slow they are not really aware who even creates them. Capcom can make RE7 and an RE2 remake and likely have both done by 2 different teams that have nothing to do with each other... The fact that you even think "salary on x number of port teams" is even near the cost to even make a damn DENT in ground up game development is toooooo funny. Your showing your young age. I've seen marketing cost higher then the cost to port games bud, in the HUGE hundred millions. The cost of RE7's marketing alone is likely higher then the cost of all their RE ports COMBINED! lol Example. Heavy Rain's marketing cost 32 million...I'm pretty sure Capcom likely spent more on RE6's marketing as they had lots of TV spots. AC's Wii U ports cost about 1 million or so.. Meaning...that with JUST the marketing cost alone..they could do 32 ports lol. Never mind development cost JUST the marketing cost lol, do you not get how much it really cost to make a game from the ground up? They are making money from those ports...money that is actually helping fund RE7. 1 million in RE7 is just 1 million. 1 million in RE Zero will be many more millions to put back into RE7, simple business.
I never said anything about team size...the only resource i was referring to was money... you posted 3000 words of trying to argue that more money for development...is a bad thing... especially in a franchise that hasn't been able to get itself out of a hole in over a decade...not sure what uncharted has to do with this, as its a far more recent and successful franchise (its not 2004 anymore, RE hasn't been a big deal since then)...but, the same applies in the sense of dropping the budget for that collection...and putting it into uncharted 4... by your logic; that would damage uncharted 4...? you're still ignoring why all this remake stuff happens...its a risk free cash grab that occasionally brings in players that may've missed previous versions...gets a bunch of fanboys all stirred up and eager to buy a game twice...and pads the publisher's pockets with very little overhead...yes, they have extra teams doing them, and it doesn't directly interfere with development of new content...but it still costs money, and more money allocated to the new content is where the people buying stuff should be hoping they put it...
Yes, please do RE2 and RE3 remakes.
What's this?? Capcom ACTUALLY starting to listen to fans???
I say do the 3rd person perspective. Never was a fan of that zoomed out fixed camera view. Feels awkward and dated.
wtf? Yes! Make it! Now!
No because this is just allowing Capcom to live off nostalgia. So do something new. You've given us Resident Evil HD, DmC, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition with Resident Evil 0 and Mega Man collection on the way. Drop development on Dragons Dogma online (Sorry) and seriously reconsider Deep Down. Since it was announced over 2 years ago and development sounds very troubled. Street Fighter V looks like a step in the right direction.
It's better than part 3 on the whole. Resident Evil 2 would be a most popular choice for a remake. On the other hand, I wouldn't be buying myself. The mechanics were accepted because that kind of gameplay hadn't been seen before and the hardware was more limited so you allowed yourself to enjoy the tension and the unknown instead. Now you know more or less what kind of scenarios there will be. And post-Bioshock, lots of people are turned off by the controls and gameplay of Resident Evil. It needs to grab you more, like Resident Evil 4 once did.
Yes but keep it the way it was, for god sake don't make it 3rd person! YUCK! Not how I like my Resident Evil games! I like them with charm, each room you enter tells a story, along with the music, playing through Resi 2 on my vita and loving it, I'd happily have a re-mastered version as long as they stay true to the original. Also Onimusha Trilogy remaster please!
You want them to be true to the originals but dont want 3rd person....all RE games have been played in an external view...that is the originals. or are you asking for the cam to be in the environment instead of over the shoulder?
Yes I mean I want to stay at fixed camera angles, I don't want it to be be like Resi 4,5,6
For me the best Resident Evil it deserves an official remake.
The moment they decide to do it officially they will send a cease and desist to the guys making this unreal remake
I look forward to the remake. RE2 is my favorite in the series.
Give us the original remade with all the stories AND a co-op mode where Leon and Claire don't get split up at the beginning. For those who really don't like co-op in there resident evil then its really simple..you don't have to play the co-op mode...just do the single player. Don't make co-op fans miss out.
