There’s one thing at my childhood I will never forget, it was when my cousin came over and brought a PS1 game to play with my older brothers. Obviously my gaming curiosity peaked and had to check it out, I happened to walk in and watch from the very moment Leon’s head arches up and see’s THAT LICKER staring back down at him…my eyes widened and I was introduced to Resident Evil.
From playing it I always couldn’t quite figure something out, I know what zombies were and how they worked and that humans turn into them, but what about Lickers. What was a Licker pre T-virus?
I just had to find out…and the results were…interesting…
I recently purchased the Resident Evil origins collection for PS4, which includes Resident Evil Zero and the Resident Evil 1 remake on Gamecube, both remastered and with some additional outfits to mix up the gameplay. Now I already own both of these games on the Gamecube (along with the rest of the Resident Evil games in that generation), so why buy it again you may ask? Well one of the reasons is that because its on PS4, it makes recording the recording far easier, rather than hooking up my Wii to an Elgato and all that, I can just record direct and upload after a bit of video editing. In any case, I also purchased this as serious preparation for the release of the Resident Evil 2 remake.
At last! Our prayers have been answered, Capcom have confirmed that there will be a Resident Evil 2 remake. This is the best news to come from the gaming world in a long time. Whether it is just a HD remake or they tweak the Police station layout or other things, it is going to be good. As long as they take feedback from the fans which they should, it will be something special and I will be first in line to buy it. For this in particular I want to thank the guys on the ‘Remake Resident Evil 2’ Facebook community page, who played a massive part in petitioning for a remake as well as just talking about how amazing it would be to remake Resident Evil 2.
