Resident Evil 3 (Xbox One)
Remember Jill Valentine? Who doesn’t? The character that was based on the Japanese franchise, “Biohazard,” became a big hit in gaming in the late 1990s then came to life in the big screen with actress Milla Jovovich. In recent years, Resident Evil 3 was released along with the introduction of the Nemesis, a colossal, mutilated humanoid running on unprecedented AI. The Nemesis would hunt Valentine throughout the game, practically shooting and destroying anything and everything that comes between it and the game’s heroine.
Although game developer, Capcom, reportedly planned to introduce a new lead character to this remake, the makers eventually decided to adapt the original plot along with Valentine still trying to survive within Raccoon City and trying to escape it at the same time.
The plot takes place in 1998 with the game opening to clips of chaotic scenes happening within the city following an outbreak caused by the Umbrella Corporation and the release of the T-virus. A familiar plot for those familiar with the story only this time, Nemesis is also shown in a scene while being brought to life in one of the Umbrella Corporation’s facilities.
Graphics in high-definition is not the only leveled up feature in Resident Evil 3. Here are the other exciting possibilities to watch out for:
- Choice of single player or up to 4 players with the Resident Evil Resistance
- Go Masterminds Mode to be the enemy that hunts down other players and gain control over elite bioweapons such as the G-Birkin and Tyrant
- Switch from first-person to third-person point-of-view
- Engage with the character’s environment
Capcom is exploring options for further Resident Evil remakes
Much like the original, the recent Resident Evil 4 remake proved to be immensely popular, no doubt cementing a desire for future remakes. It seems, however, that developer Capcom may not be sure of how to proceed from here: an official survey has been circulating, gauging fans' knowledge of and interest in various parts of the franchise before asking point‐blank which games they'd like to see remade. — Read the rest
Capcom survey asks which Resident Evil you want remade next
Will it be Resident Evil 5? The Resident Evil franchise has been on top of the world lately, especially with the release of the Resident Evil 4 remake. Now, not wanting to stop this juggernaut, Capcom is asking you which other game in the iconic survival horror series you'd like to see get remade, if any. The recent survey poses a few questions about how well people know what's happening in the world of Resident Evil. For example, people are asked whether they follow any of the official social media channels, as well as how familiar they are with the entries, be they games or movie adaptations. One of the final questions then gives you the chance to suggest which installment you'd like to see a remake of. With Capcom flying high in terms of sales, no doubt the studio is interested in where to take things from here. It should be pointed out that the survey results won't necessarily mean there'll be another RE remake in the pipeline. However, there have already been rumors that the series' 2009 release, Resident Evil 5 could be getting reimagined, but there's no solid evidence for that yet. Given that the remake of Resident Evil 4 has sold millions of copies, it's not surprising that Capcom wants to keep bringing back older entries. At this point, however, anything past the fourth entry doesn't quite fit the "classic" status of the earlier installments. RE5 is certainly a mainline series entry but arguably may not necessarily warrant a full remake. Maybe the results of this survey will lead Capcom into deciding an official remake of it is the way forward.

Resident Evil 0 demake reimagines game on PS1
Capcom has been hitting it out of the park recently with its Resident Evil remakes, but what would it look like if the publisher decided to take its games in the opposite direction? Well, you don't have to wonder any longer, thanks to a group of modders creating a Resident Evil 0 demake. The game was originally released in 2002 for the GameCube, and looks and plays similar to the HD Resident Evil remaster. This demake for 0 does the opposite, however, and turns the game into a Resident Evil experience like that of the first three games on PlayStation 1. Footage of the project in action can be seen below, via El Rincon del Lobezno's YouTube channel, who is one of the modders involved in its creation. Read more
