We’ve been seeing a lot of Resident Evil: Revelations HD lately, but there’s still one question left on many fans’ minds: how will this version compare to the original? Now we can answer that too, thanks to a comparison video from Nintend2TV. See how the high definition port stacks up to the handheld version after the jump. READ MORE
Want to watch some chatty Germans play thirty minutes of Resident Evil: Revelations HD?Of course you do. This is worth watching — muted — to get a look at the upcoming port’s enhanced visuals. It looks fantastic and I really can’t wait to get my hands on it when the game releases for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on May 21st. READ MORE
Something I missed announced at E3 was the remake of the original Painkiller. Never having played the game myself I am quite looking forward to Hell and Damnation’s release. I haven’t read anything about what platforms it will be released on though the original was released on the PC. From my studies the game was re-released about a million times and has had several expansion packs since it’s 2004 release. There is also no word if Hell and Damnation will contain those expansions, but I would hope so. Screens past the break, more info as it comes.
It’s difficult to believe Doom 3 came out eight years ago, but the fact that it’s already been long enough to warrant a remastered edition makes me feel old. It might not have been the revolutionary horror game many fans expected it to be, an expectation accumulated over the many, many years fans had to wait for it, but it was still an excellent action/horror game. Now Doom 3 is getting the remastered treatment with the BFG Edition, due this fall for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will include some brand new levels, the Resurrection of Evil expansion, Doom 1 and 2, 3D support, 5.1 surround sound, and the ability to have a flashlight and a gun out at the same time. How sad is it that out of all those new features, the promise of a flashlight with all my guns is the one I’m most looking forward to? Head past the jump for the debut trailer! READ MORE
Released in 1992, Alone in the Dark is notable for being one of the original survival horror games, before Resident Evil coined the term in 1996. The most recent game failed to reboot the series, despite some neat ideas like an on-person inventory, real-time damage, and some of the best fire effects ever. At a GDC postmortem, series creator Frédérick Raynal expressed interest in an HD remake, saying “I would love an HD remake one day and I hope it will happen, one day.” I hope it’ll happen too. It’s been too long since we’ve had a new Alone in the Dark.
There really isn’t a reason the series shouldn’t get remade, especially since that seems to be the popular trend with older video games these days, including Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry later this year. Now’s a pretty great time for something like this to happen, since this year marks the series’ 20th anniversary. So get on it, Atari. READ MORE
If you’re an original House Of The Dead fan, chances are you’re at a point in your life where you can afford a Playstation 3, and a Playstation Move. Well friends, you’re in luck. You can now download House Of The Dead 3 from the Playstation Network for $6.99. It’s fully compatible with your PS Move, and there are Trophies.
Later this spring you House Of The Dead fans can look forward to the release of the 4th game, which until now was arcade only. Exciting! Don’t you love technology!? READ MORE
Remember how the first three months of the year were packed with amazing horror games, enough to throw even the most insatiable horror fan into a horror overdose-induced coma? Well, while this remains true, January is looking a little less appealing now that the Silent Hill HD Collection has been pushed back into March, to release alongside Downpour and Operation Raccoon City. No reason for the delay has been revealed just yet, but I hope it falls somewhere in the ‘extra polishing’ category.
For those keeping up I’ve provided a revised release schedule for the horror games coming out up until March, which you can find after the break. READ MORE
Just last week it was revealed that HD versions of both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X would be releasing on PSN and XBLA in September. RE4 will come out on the 20th with Code Veronica following a week later on the 27th. When it comes to gameplay we really haven’t been able to see much of what these games look like in action, but today, that changes. Below you can sneak a peek at the new and improved Resident Evil 4 and after the jump you’ll find some Code Veronica gameplay.
Having played Resident Evil 4 off and on a handful of times since it’s release, the upgrade in visuals is very noticeable – the textures are crisper and everything is clearer, like you’re seeing what the world really looks like after wearing glasses for the first time. Or maybe you’ve spent your entire life crying, seeing the world through a veil of tears until finally, you heard my sultry voice in the Dead Pixels podcast, immediately cheered up, and can now see a world that isn’t clouded by tears. Head past the break for some Code Veronica gameplay and a batch of new screenshots. READ MORE
I’m going to just go right into the best part of the video below. Classic Mode. What is it? Well friends, at literally ANY time during the campaign, you can switch to Classic Mode. The graphics will revert to the original Halo’s graphics. So you can see how big and how amazing the jump up to HD really is. Check it out below!
Co-op XBLA campaign?! YES! Although Halo 2 was my starting point, so many years ago, I still can’t wait for Anniversary. November 15th, Xbox 360. READ MORE
Capcom’s revitalizing two classic Resident Evil titles, with hopefully more to come in the future, and thanks to Comic-Con we finally have release dates for both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X. The good news is we won’t have to wait long as both games are releasing this September.
Resident Evil 4 will become available on September 20 with Code Veronica X following a week later on the 27th. Still no word on what these games are charging but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were somewhere around the premium arcade game price of $15. READ MORE
Announced not long after Capcom revealed their Resident Evil: Revival Selection, Konami let loose their plans to remaster Silent Hill 2 and 3 in the Remastered Collection. Unlike Resident Evil, the new and improved Silent Hills will be exclusive to the PS3 (at least for the time being), but at least many gamers who missed these fantastic games the first time around will now have the opportunity to experience them with updated visuals.
The Remastered Collection is expected to release sometime in September or October, though no solid release date has been revealed yet. What’s even more exciting is the inclusion of full trophy support and updated in-game voice work from Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, who’s singing has appeared in almost every game in the main series. Head past the break for a few screenshots, unfortunately we don’t yet have a screen of the Pyramid Head mannequin rape scene but since I know many of you are clamoring to see it I will make it my duty to bring you a screenshot of that sometime in the near future. READ MORE
It seemed like it was only yesterday when we got our first look at Code Veronica’s Achievements, a list that would get even the least Resident Evil-friendly gamers salivating at its easy achievements. Most are story based, meaning you’ll have a majority of them unlocked by the end of the game, and Resident Evil 4′s cheevos look to be much of the same. My personal favorite is “Do Not Shoot the Water,” because I totally did after hearing from a friend that something happens if I do. Needless to say when that something happened I screamed like a little girl. Whereas I usually scream like a pre-pubescent boy.
I’ve included the full list of achievements after the jump, and for those of you who might be as lazy as me, I also threw in Code Veronica’ list. Why? Because I fucking love you, that’s why. READ MORE
Hello, my name is Adam, and I have an addiction. It all started back in 2005 when the Xbox 360 launched with a brand new feature: achievements. They seemed harmless at first, but my love of what I affectionately refer to as “Cheevos” has blown up into a full on obsession to get as many as humanly possible. There are some gamers who think achievements single-handedly ruined gaming. Those people definitely aren’t gamerscore whores. Sadly, I am, and that’s why this news warms my cold, dead heart so much.
Capcom’s upcoming Revival Selection, due out this autumn, gives us the opportunity to experience two fantastic games in the series, Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X, with a brand new paint job. We’ve already had a substantial look at the two games’ new looks, but if their crisper visuals weren’t enough of a reason to check them out when they go downloadable later this year than perhaps 1,000 achievement points are enough motivation. Head past the break for Code Veronica’s achievements, hopefully we’ll get the deets (that’s hipster slang for “details,” I know because I’m real hip) on Resident Evil 4′s Cheevos soon. READ MORE
Earlier today Capcom released a new trailer for their upcoming Revival Selection that bundles HD versions of both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X. The video shows off each of the games’ crisp new looks by comparing gameplay from the originals to their upcoming remastered versions. They’ll be released in Japan on September 8th for ¥4,490 ($56) on a single Blu-ray disc for the PS3 and two discs for the Xbox 360. While no release date has been revealed for the North American games, we know they’ll be downloadable on XBLA and PSN sometime later this year.
They’re looking pretty good. Having gone through Resident Evil 4 at least a dozen times across all the platforms it was released on I’m looking forward to spending some more time with what I affectionately refer to as its sexy version. I only played through Code Veronica once so that’s also high on my to do list, I just hope I can get past the awful controls. READ MORE
The wait is finally over to experience one of the most anticipated motion-picture trilogies of all time like never before when Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III debut as a trilogy set on Blu-ray October 25, 2011 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
Acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s award-winning cinematic franchise, based on the best-selling book by Michael Crichton, generated nearly $2 billion combined at the worldwide box office and featured groundbreaking visual effects that changed the art of movie-making forever. Now, all three epic films have been digitally restored and remastered in flawless high definition for the ultimate viewing experience. Additionally, the films’ visceral sound effects and the unforgettable music from legendary composer John Williams can now be heard in pristine 7.1 surround sound.
Arriving in stores just in time for holiday gift giving, this collectible three-movie set also features hours of bonus features, including an all-new, six-part documentary and digital copies of all three films that can be viewed on an array of electronic and portable devices anytime, anywhere. The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy is also available on DVD, as well as in a spectacular Limited Edition Blu-ray Trilogy Gift Set which includes a custom T-rex dinosaur statue.
Remember that exciting little reveal from E3 that Konami was joining Capcom in bringing back one of their classic horror franchises in HD? Well, thanks to GameStop, we finally have some new details regarding this collection. If you weren’t aware, both Silent Hill 2 and 3 are getting remastered with crisper visuals and new voicework before they get rereleased on the PS3. Unfortunately, only playstation fans will be getting the collection for now, but there’s a chance it’ll migrate to other platforms as well.
Granted, all of the info gleaned from the collection’s product page can change but if it’s true the important things are its September 20th release date, full trophy support (not a surprise), clearer 720p visuals, and a “completely updated in-game voiceover directed by series vocalist Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and soundtrack score enhancing the storytelling and ambient music within each re-mastered game.” Exciting.READ MORE
Remember those HD versions of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X that were revealed back in March? Well, if this yet to be confirmed rumor from the latest issue of Famitsu is correct, Japan might be getting some crisp and sexy Resident Evil action this September. But please, don’t get too excited just yet. Famitsu is a Japanese gaming magazine so even if this is true the September 8th release date might only be for Japan. There’s no word on if this goes for the rest of us as well.
The reported price of the Revival Selection is ¥4,490, or roughly the price of a new game (56 bucks). Not a bad deal since the bundle includes HD versions of two fantastic Resident Evil games. Sadly, many lazier gamers like myself will have to get up to swap discs since the Xbox 360 version will come on two while the PS3 version will ship on a single blu-ray disc. Supposedly, the bundle will also bring with it a digital version of the two Resident Evil Archives books, so that’s a nice bonus for those who missed them. READ MORE
Announced back in February, Halo: Combat Evolved was to be Re-Evolved (Adam’s word) in HD. The game will officially be called Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Being developed by 343 Industries in collaboration with Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity Halo Anniversary will take you back through the original Halo campaign only remastered in high definition. Not only the campaign but you will also be able to play the newly remastered multiplayer maps over Xbox Live.
There will be unlockable motion graphic stories that will foreshadow mysteries in Halo 4. There will also be 1000 achievement points you can get in the game. It’s looking at a 40 dollar price point and a release November 15th on the Xbox 360. Features past el breako. READ MORE
Perhaps it was because of Capcom announcing HD remakes of Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4, but SUPER exciting and awesome news was announced at Konami’s pre-E3 press conference. Silent Hill 2 and 3 are going to get HD makeovers and packaged together in the Silent Hill: Collection. YES! I can’t say I’m surprised, switching classic games over to HD is definitely in.
It’s true there WAS a hole, in my heart. It will soon be filled with HD gloriousness. No other info is known, no release dates, no screens, no videos, and no systems. But who cares, awesome! READ MORE
Announced by the sexy and illustrious Adam Dodd less than 2 short days ago, Capcom will be remaking 2 excellent Resident Evil games. Resident Evil Code Veronica X & Resident Evil 4 will be remade in semi glorious HD for the Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade.
Sometime this fall they will be released for download, and past the break you can see 5 SD to HD comparison screen shots. The pics show off exactly what you will be seeing in the upcoming releases as opposed to what you have seen in the past. READ MORE
Are you a fan of the recent Halo games but didn’t check out the game that started it all? Maybe you only recently got into video games, or perhaps, like me, you didn’t own the original Xbox. Well, come this holiday season you’ll get the chance to experience the game that started the Halo phenomenon when it’s re-released with an HD makeover.
For the industry this isn’t necessarily a new practice as Sony’s been revitalizing classic games like God of War, Shadow of the Colossus and Ico with slick HD visuals for some time now. Assuming Halo: Combat Re-Evolved (that’s the incredibly clever tentative title I made up for it) does well this could become a new trend for Xbox 360 owners. READ MORE
