  1. Mortal Kombat from 1995. It has some amazing fights and the special effects are still incredible. But do not bother with the second movie. It's terrible.
  2. They could very well be remastering this... https://www.gamingbible.co.uk/news/resident-evil-outbreak-remaster-could-be-happening-20220223.amp.html
  3. Dino Crisis. Onimusha. Why has Capcom left them to rot?
  4. Well, I don't think there's many artefacts to discover. Maybe in the new Uncharted movie, perhaps. But not on 4chan. 😆
  5. I don't know. They backed themselves into a corner after killing off Umbrella prematurely. Even then, they couldn't keep doing zombie games forever. But these days, it kind of feels like they just make things up as they go along. Like how they linked Miranda to Spencer, so there could be a connection to the plot throughout the older games. However, The Evil Within 2 is actually scary and had an update where Bethesda added in an optional first person mode. But you could still play it in third person, as it was not compulsory. But I even felt the story and the gameplay in general was better than anything in RE8, and also the majority of the RE games since 2009. But nobody seems to support that game... I think finding that commercial appeal is important too. So they have to tread carefully because a legacy series should try new things. But I think most fans who played the old ones will agree that they've drifted way off course with the fantasy elements. The really early games were more scientific based, or like a cool homage to George Romero. Now they've got vibes of the classic Hammer days. LOL!
  6. They must have ran into issues. 8 months with no update. Besides, the base game is nearly a year old. I have never touched it again since I finished it last May. It's probably going to have prequel stories anyway. Likely something about Lady Dimitrescu. So that stuff about Chris and the former BSAA agents going to Europe, is probably on hold. I had more enjoyment with Days Gone in 2019, quite honestly.
  7. Here's an example of why GameFAQs sucks... https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/292820-resident-evil-village/79858125 The thread transcended into bickering among the participants, to the point where there was pages of crap to sift through. My eyes started to hurt. After realising that things would never improve, I just gave up caring about being a member. Then I requested that my account be closed. Again! Yeah, I posted there in the past and I think I just went back because at least it's full of active discussions there. Around 95% of other gaming forums are dead today. 😒 It's a waste of time registering an account on there, because they either post flame bait, or nonsense that is probably for trolling reasons, or because they only like certain installments, giving their age. Because I seriously doubt many of these members even played the games released prior to 2005. It's not just in that thread either. They'll literally keep it up in any topic regarding any game, because they feel as if their opinion has to be the right one to go off of. And you're constantly going to be reading these dumb remarks like, "I don't like fixed camera angles!" and "Shinji Mikami was a wacko who went too far!" Seriously... No real Resident Evil fan even cares about that, because if anything, we miss those type of games. We also miss Shinji Mikami. There wouldn't have been a franchise without his input to begin with. They're not appreciative of him at all. Just like with Silent Hill, people talk about Hideo Kojima more than they do with Team Silent. But he only worked on one game, that ended up being cancelled. But they seem to enjoy praising him a lot more often than Team Silent for some reason. The people who made these games are rarely giving any acknowledgement. And that's sad... Anyway, that's the end of my 5 minutes of moaning. 😆
  8. I'd definitely add GameFAQs to the list. Oh, and 4chan. 😐
  9. Yeah. Surely, Capcom must be close to revealing something by now. It has been 8 months. I had gotten my hopes up too. 😄
  10. If it was going to be anything about RE, it would probably be for that battle royale thing they unveiled a year ago, or the story based DLC we are supposed to receive soon. 🤔 An actual announcement about a remake of RE4 would probably occur at a major gaming event, like E3, or at least the equivalent to whatever E3 represents. You know? Something on a larger scale, where they can set the Internet on fire. That's assuming Covid hasn't put a wrench in the works with anyone's plans. I don't think they would waste this opportunity on something as monumental as RE4 by revealing it in a minor update, as a lot of people are likely going to be sleeping at that time. That's no doubt going to be one of Capcom's largest games in many a year. So they're likely going to be careful about how they promote that one. Either way, I will only be in support of a remake of RE4 if they take it in a more horror like direction. Personally, I always hated how the original deviated the genre away from the roots, because they noticed shooting games like Call of Duty were the next big thing. So essentially, RE ended up being ruined, but I guess people also feel as if this change towards action oriented gameplay was vital to keep it alive. But whatever, huh? It still kind of wrecked the series to an extent, because it was from that point onwards, rapidly turning into a shoot and loot saga, with the misfortune of having minimal creepiness. Keep that out of our RE, please! 😜
  11. Then again, it could be for RE. https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/1568354/Capcom-Countdown-end-time-TODAY-Street-Fighter-6-Resident-Evil-4-Remake-rumours/amp We have roughly 8 more hours to wait, to find out for sure. 😚
  12. It may not be for anything to do with RE. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/capcom-will-announce-street-fighter-6-on-monday-its-claimed/
  13. Something is going on with Capcom this upcoming Monday. But it's not known if this has anything to do with a RE game. It's quite possible it could be an announcement regarding the DLC for RE8, or something else unrelated to the series. https://www.capcom-games.com/countdown/
  14. Third person. I prefer to see the characters I am controlling.
  15. It depends. I think there's a few that are great in the game, like these enemies with the knives on their hands. But in general, it's not a game that is anywhere as atmospheric as the older titles. I think Revelations 2 did a better job of being creepy, despite being in third person. It's not a title many fans mention in the same breath, however.
  16. So if the remake of RE4 will be more horror in tone, I think some RE3.5-ish concepts will resurface, like that "Hook Man" idea they eventually didn't go with. But I'd definitely love a more creepy RE4, because as good as the original is, the game was not exactly renowned for being scary. In fact, the game had too much of a reliance on enemy numbers and things like evading boulders and pits. Hopefully they realize that's more annoying than fun.
  17. I think E3 isn't going ahead this year because of the surge in COVID-19 cases. There will be another major gaming event this summer, though, and it will probably be held online. But I think any DLC for RE8 will be revealed prior to June. That's not likely to be promoted, giving how it's nearly one year old.
  18. I'm not trying to be racist, but I don't see the point in this, when Jill is American, as is Leon. Why so triggered? Sorry for being behind in my ethnicity distinguishing. 😙
  19. Shoot. Shoot like there's no tomorrow. You can also crush their heads by pressing R2 if they're stunned. I hope this news article I found, is accurate. https://www.ign.com/articles/resident-evil-4-remake-new-details-changes-report
  20. So I have been playing RE6 the last few days. I'm surprised that game didn't kill the whole franchise. All you do 98% of the time is shoot various terrorists that are infected. There's no resemblance to survival horror anywhere in that game, despite Leon's campaign including zombies. But it does have some cool moments, if you like action stuff. Those BSAA soldiers usually just stand there, though. The most useless NPC squadron in gaming. LOL.
  21. I wish I knew, quite frankly. The article said nothing. But it is Capcom. They probably just paid her a ton of their money. I think the makers of other games could attempt to sue them too. But there is some things you can copy that you cannot copyright, even if it is obviously copying. It would have to be more precise. Like if an enemy looked the same rather than just behaving the same, that is a different matter entirely. I gave several examples already. In fact, I was talking to a guy I know on the phone recently who was spot on. He agreed that they just look at whatever is trending, and decide to steal ideas, and that is how the industry operates if you are working among money grabbers. It has cheapened their legacy. Shinji Mikami surely doesn't support this garbage. Also, the lies about RE8 being another action focused entry in the series, because 7 was reportedly "too scary" for players in VR, or something, is a very odd thing to say. But that's a lame excuse. Really, very lame. Survival horror games are supposed to be scary. Duh. So why they said that, no idea. You can tell they knew RE8 was a copy of RE4, and they knew RE8 would not be seen as being anything other than action horror.
  22. So I just finished watching RE: Woke Raccoon City (not it's actual title, of course). I think they did a good job being faithful in some regards, and messed up in other ways. Really liked the orphanage scenes and the mansion. But the two plots run concurrently. Some things I didn't like was that Wesker didn't have his sunglasses... until Ada shows up in the mid-credits scene. Also, they replaced Barry with Richard Aiken, who was in the games, but as a member of the STARS Bravo Team. Oh, dear...
