Currys Cans Canis

The owners of UK electrical retailer Currys, have today confirmed that its stores will not be stocking copies of Rockstar's Canis Canem Edit, commenting that it was "...the explicit link between violence and children that led us [DSG Retail] to the decision on this particular game."

Canis Canem Edit, which takes place during the course of a school year at a particularly rough boarding school in New England, has been subject to negative coverage in the mainstream media since it was first announced in May 2005 - described as a "bullying simulator" by certain media outlets and organisations that had judged the game on limited details of its content.

Once they see the title start to sell well elsewhere,I bet they will re-think there stupid decision.This title is a huge PS2 Xmas hit in the making.

curry's like everyone else has yet to play the finished game there just jumping on a bandwagon of hype and in a strange way is helping to promote the game.
I would understand a bit more if this was a supermarket like say sainsbury's for instance who have a broad range of customers shopping for food ect. but a company that sells electical products to a slightly more tech savy customer should have waited till the games realese before openly stating they not going to sell it, they still sell GTA games maybe they will lose more then just the people who want to buy this game all the owners of xbox's and ps2's will now view curries in a different light and probably just go next door (useally) and shop at comet.

This is nothing to do with the game, its all about advertising because now every time that some TV show or newspaper talks about Bully (and its coming to xmas, Trevor McDonald will do a "how is gaming harming your children") they will mention Currys didnt sell it, its free advertsing and nothing more, they would do it with GTA too but they would lose way to much cash, Bully will not sell anywhere near as many as GTA so its a hit worth taking.

Remake of Resident evil outbreak as well as file 2. Same gameplay as the recent remakes. Choose what ever character you want to play as. With online co op.

I've been dying to see Outbreak come back for years.

Even RE Zero and Code Veronica would be excellent.

But for the love of God, not RE5 or RE6.

One they get around to the aforementioned games, why not remake the original Devil May Cry trilogy? That would be a much better use of time. At the very least, the first two games.

code veronica should be the nest remake

CV is good candidate for a remake but requires way more work for today’s standard. People look at CV through their tinted glasses. I think capcom wants to remake every game up till 6 and fix the plot holes so they can continue the series in one straight story path

Also not sure why only RE have to get remade when there are other capcom games that would be better suited for remakes like oninusha

DVAcme1d 8h ago

That's PRECISELY the reason Code Veronica needs a remake. All the other RE games aged pretty well, considering the limitations of the time, but Code Veronica is the game that would be served the best bybremaking it because it feels so archaic these days.

neutralgamer19921d 5h ago


But it depends if capcom wants a big project or a quick remake. CV will require a lot more work than RE5

IMO they should remake other games before doing RE5

TheEnigma3131d 13h ago

how many times do we have to say CV is the next best one?

CrimsonWing691d 13h ago

Nooooo! Why the hell can’t they do Code Veronica? I just don’t understand.

1Victor1d 12h ago

RE5 is the closest to the bottom of the pot(a little smoky flavor but passable in a emergency) before we get to the burned crust that is 6 that not even the pigs would eat

CrimsonWing691d 12h ago (Edited 1d 12h ago )

Unpopular opinion here, but I enjoyed 5 and 6. I just think, in terms of Remakes, the classics are the one that should get the treatment above the modern takes of the franchise.

Don’t get wrong, RE4 definitely was an outstanding Remake, but RE5… I just get less excited about a Remake for that over something like Code Veronica.

RaidenBlack1d 12h ago

Rather remake other past Capcom & non-mainline RE games ... IF they have to continue churning out Remakes.
I'd rather want a new 3rd person RE spin-off
