It’s In Your Blood: A History of Horror Games (Part Three)

horrorhistory-header

If you’re anything like me, you like to be scared. Horror movies accomplish this nicely from time to time, but for a truly memorable experience, horror games are unmatched. They drop you into terrifying situations, leaving you no choice but to wade through unforgiving environments and do battle with grotesque creatures… but when did this genre begin? How did it evolve? If you find yourself asking these questions, take a seat. Welcome to our domain!

We recently covered the birth of horror games, and then waxed poetic about the genre’s evolution. This time around, you’ll be reading about a far more stable period for this type of game. As certain horror titles began to stand out from the crowd, developers and publishers quickly took notice. This leads us directly into… (more…)

Capcom is planning a “full-scale offensive” for the Resident Evil franchise this year

Brace yourself, the Resident Evil franchise is going on a “full-scale offensive” during the back half of 2016 and into 2017. Capcom announced their battle plan during a recent Quarterly Financial Report, and it’s hard to argue with their choice of words… the publisher has already released two Resident Evil games in 2016 and will push out three more in the coming months, along with the final entry in the Milla Jovovich-starring film franchise:

Resident Evil 0 (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One) January 20, 2016
Resident Evil 6 (PS4, Xbox One) March 29, 2016
Umbrella Corps (PC, PS4) June 21, 2016
Resident Evil 5 (PS4, Xbox One) Summer 2016
Resident Evil 4 (PS4, Xbox One) Fall 2016
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (Film) January 27, 2017

And then there’s Resident Evil 7, which Capcom began teasing more than six months ago. Obviously, there’s no guarantee that Resident Evil 7 will be released (or even announced) this year, but the E3 Expo is right around the corner and 2016 is the 20th anniversary of the first Resident Evil game.

On top of all this, Capcom confirmed a few months back that a full remake of Resident Evil 2 is also in the works. The oft-requested doesn’t currently have a release date, but it’s very possible that it’s launch will also fall within the “full-scale offensive” period.

I guess the bottom line is that it’s a great time to be a Resident Evil fan.

Capcom confirms that a Resident Evil 2 remake is in development

Because the fans asked for it, Capcom is finally ready to announce that a remake of Resident Evil 2 is in development at Capcom R&D Division 1.

Shouting the words, “We Do It!” (and wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the same), Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has promised to deliver the gameplay experience fans have been waiting for. However, the project is very early in development and we don’t yet know what platforms it’s coming to or even when it’ll be released. Hirabayashi also said it may be long time before we hear anything else about it.

In the meantime, the developer wants everyone to remember that a remaster of Resident Evil 0 is still on track for an early 2016 release for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
