I was curious how this game would play out. I am a huge RE fan but haven't picked it up yet. hopefully Ill get to try it for myself soon.

I just want to play it on max settings. I mean, that's usually the kicker for me. It justifies the money spent.

This game is a gem and is a solid 9 at least in my book. Game has broke digital records and deserves it. This is the classic resident evil we all love.

Now make another fresh one like this but with panta rhei Capcom!

I've never played any Resident Evil before 4. I can't wait to dive into this. Looks like RE 1 done right.

Your in for a treat then. Easily the best resident evil game to date.

Had a blast playing through this game again. I really like how there is multiple endings and major differences between both playable characters.

I remember back in those days when 8 hours was significant. RE 1 and RE 2 are the best in the series. I would only count Code Veronica if you play it on Dreamcast. Mmmmm, Dreamcast.

Resident Evil HD Remaster receives a new AI-enhanced Texture Pack, improves more than 1600 textures

DSOGaming writes: "These past few weeks have been really interesting as we've seen some truly amazing AI-enhanced texture packs for older games. Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8, Final Fantasy 9, Half-Life, Max Payne, Morrowind and Doom are just a few of the games that got new high-quality textures that were produced via AI Neural Networks and today, modder ‘Shiryu’ released a new AI-enhanced Texture Pack for Resident Evil HD Remaster."

I'm not really convinced by this AI Neural Networks thing using this as an example. I know you can't ask for much when it comes to pre-rendered stuff, but you can barely see a difference with most of these. At its worst, there's an imperceptible difference. At its best, you can see it cleared up some jaggies and looks a liiiittle less blurry.

I will download it of course, but based on the screenshots, this doesn't improve things a whole lot.

It does make a difference. Mods in general are just awesome. They've helped make so many of my games look better. The HD reworked texture mods and other mods for The Witcher 3, for example, made it look way better.

This may be small improvements now but it could be huge for gaming's future. AI with a ryzen based chip programmed to use the neural network to determine to the metal coding might allow programmers to focus on high level coding. That means games get done really fast and the budget goes into things like story and production. Once you have an ai that understands its given hardware it can decide how to run the code to maximize frames and resolution. AI will revolutionize gaming.
