Final Fantasy VII Remake
[extremely nerds voice] "You're doing this for the planet, same as us!" There's a bit of actual, early gameplay from the Final Fantasy VII PS4 remake announced at E3 this year. You can see a bit of the, "more realistic gamep...   read

Capcom: 'RE2 will be a full from the ground up remake NOT a remaster'

Capcom has confirmed the new Resident Evil 2 will be a "from the ground up remake" and not a remaster. Although the publisher's investor report stated that the game would be a "remastered" version of the classic survival horr...

 
Demon's Souls
I know how many people love this game, so I’ll cut the preamble: Demon’s Souls might be coming to PS4. The game put From Software on the map, and introduced the format now used yearly for the likes of Dark Souls a...   read

Here's every Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir character trailer

The Odin Sphere remake is coming as early as January in Japan (later in the year elsewhere), and Atlus is sufficiently pumping us up with character trailers for all of the old cast members. All of the usual suspects -- Velvet, Oswald, ...

Fallout: The Story is recreating Fallout 1 in New Vegas

There are plenty of people who’ve been introduced to the Fallout series thanks to the recently released Fallout 4. That means there are also plenty of people who might like to go back and play the older games to see how far it’...

#SaveBubsy

Almost did a spit-take when I saw this slide into my inbox today. Apparently, Retroism is on the quest to save Bubsy (yes, the platforming feline with radical CATtitude) and wants your help to do it. They're re-releasing two of Bubsy's &ldq...

Square Enix plans to remake a lot of old games

Back at E3 this year, Square Enix announced probably the most-requested remake from the company's back catalog, a remake of Final Fantasy VII. According to a recently released annual report, Final Fantasy VII is just the start of a future i...

EA: Remakes happen when you're 'out of ideas'

Electronic Arts isn't keen on re-releasing games in its back catalogue on new platforms. Speaking with IGN, EA Chief Operating Office Peter Moore said the practice of remaking older titles "feels like pushing stuff out because you’ve ...

Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls PS4 release date coming 'soon now'

If you've been patiently making origami and waiting for Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls to make it to PlayStation 4, I have good news - they're coming "soon now". The official twitter account of developer Quantic Dream thanked fans for th...

Did a retailer leak a BioShock remastered collection?

A remaster of the BioShock trilogy may be coming to current-gen consoles as early as this November. It's all rumours and conjecture at present -- and 2K is saying nothing -- but South African retailer Raru shared details over the week...

Age of Mythology is getting a new expansion: Tale of the Dragon

It’s not every day you see a 13-year-old game get an expansion, is it? Well that’s sort of what’s happening to Age of Mythology: The Extended Edition with Tale of the Dragon. Technically, the Extended Edition actuall...

Fanmade Resident Evil 2 remake canceled

A bit of bad news with a silver lining, Capcom's recent announcement of an official remake of Resident Evil 2 has indeed put the kibosh on Resident Evil 2 Reborn; a promising looking fan remake made with Unreal 4. On the upside, accord...

The Nathan Drake Collection goes to the ends of the earth for you

Aww, they grow up so fast, don't they? I mean, one day little Nate's lifting his first ring, the next he's tearing down ancient ruins in search of treasure. Precious moments. Hold onto them. Cherish them forever. Of course, plenty of peopl...

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 4 releasing on Steam September 18, first three games are also coming to PC

Wow, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is something I haven’t thought about in 10 years. I always thought it was a weird attempt to piggyback on the success Spyro and Crash Bandicoot had during the  generation before. The last game, Ty...

Resident Evil HD team already presenting Resident Evil 2 remake to Capcom

This theoretical Resident Evil 2 remake project is starting to possibly take form this week. After asking fans what they would want to see out of the remake, Capcom R&D Division 1 once again took to Facebook to note that it ha...

Capcom wants to know if you want Resident Evil 2 HD, you should say yes

I remember exactly where I was when I played the first four entries of the Resident Evil series. The second game in particular was memorable, as I played it with a friend in my neighborhood for days on end, and we invented various ways to "...

PC players will have to wait a bit for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition

It was only a month ago that The Coalition boss Rod Fergusson took the floor at the PC Gaming show at E3 to announce that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition would release on Windows 10. That's still true, but it won't release alo...

Could Shenmue 3 end up looking something like this?

Korean modder Kid Nocon began his unofficial HD remake of the original Shenmue last year, before any of us knew that Shenmue 3 would burst onto the scene and become the most funded video game Kickstarter yet.  Nocon's original efforts...

Yep, Nathan Drake still destroys everything in the Uncharted remaster

Much like Kratos' continued penchant for yelling at every opportunity, it's nice to see that reckless destruction doesn't just stop following Nathan Drake now that he's moved to PlayStation 4. A visit by him is a guaranteed way to raise th...

Yep, Kratos still yells a lot in the God of War III remaster

You didn't think Kratos would suddenly drop the whole shouting thing for his first appearance on PS4, did you? Asking him to do that would be like taking away his blades and giving him walkie talkies instead. Constant yelling is part of hi...

Surprise! Nomura didn't know he was directing Final Fantasy VII remake

But if I'm here...and you're here...who's driving the boat?! Tetsuya Nomura is directing the Final Fantasy VII remake, and he's already talked about ways in which it will differ from the 1997 original aside from just the visuals. Nomura is ...

Final Fantasy VII remake: No new characters, more realistic gameplay

First, I'd like to know if "there won’t be new characters" includes previously invented Final Fantasy VII characters, say from Advent Children, or if it means no new characters added relative to the original Final Fantasy VII. Some ot...

Prototype and Prototype 2 might be heading to PS4

Back in 2009, a brutal war was raging in gaming. No, not Xbox vs PlayStation, or Call of Duty vs Halo. It was worse. So much worse. A war centred around mediocre open-world superhero games. On the left, we had Sucker Punch’s inFa...

Activision 'thinks a lot' about remastering Call of Duty games

The video game landscape in 2015 is rife with remake after remake, and it's just something that we've sort of learned to live with. So, why is a publisher with a reputation for chasing cash not pumping out upgraded remakes of the world's mo...

At launch, Gears of War never really caught on in my circles. It was always second (or third) fiddle to Halo and Call of Duty, but I still played the campaign with my wife nonetheless, and dabbled in online play. N...   read

It's actually happening!
Wow. When a release exists so far in the realm of improbability that it becomes a joke -- like The Last Guardian or Agent or Half-Life 3 -- and then, bam, E3 gets a damn car battery to the gonads as one of these things actua...   read

What is your take on HD remakes this generation?

Are you ready for some remakes? Capcom is, as are a ton of other publishers. It feels like every other week there's an announcement for a "remastered" or "definitive" edition of a recently released game, and at times, it can get a bit ridic...

HD remakes from Capcom will now be a 'key business activity'

After the success of Resident Evil HD, it makes sense that Capcom would start gearing up for even more HD remakes. As word would have it, that's just what they're going to do. In a recent Q&A regarding their financials, the publisher no...
