The years have not been kind to Resident Evil's visuals

Capcom has posted screenshots of its 2015 remaster of Resident Evil as well as equivalent shots from the so-called "REmake." There are even sliders on Capcom-Unity so you can quickly see how the new version stacks up to the Wii port of the GameCube remake.

The side-by-side comparisons are like getting new prescription glasses. "Holy shit! How did I live like that? I was blind!" Besides the obvious reduction in blurriness, there's improved lighting.

I sometimes forget how not-great GameCube titles look on HDTVs. Still adore the console, though.

Here's our Resident Evil reward for infecting Raccoon City

Well, we did it -- the contagion spread and now Raccoon City is 100% screwed up. Go us. As a reward for essentially just registering with Capcom's site for the upcoming Resident Evil remaster to help "spread the virus," Chris...more

Demon's Crest, one of the most rare SNES games to date, is coming to the Virtual Console

One of my biggest regrets is not buying Demon's Crest as a kid. I rented it at least twice and beat it multiple times -- as soon as I was done with one playthrough, I started the next one. It's easily one of the best pla...more
