Resident Evil 1 Remastered ! Woo Hoo !

Posted by LexLas (4237 posts) -

This is the year is all happens. Not only will great racing games come to the new consoles, which is the main reason i got one. But Resident Evil 1 is being remastered ! This was one of my first games on PS1, stayed up many late nights, addicted to this game i was. My first son was not even 1, he used to say " Resident feefull daddy " hiding behind the curtain. Now in college, i'm sure we will both have much fun playing this cool remastered version. This is history in the making, i my opinion. The game that made me into a huge gaming addict is back. Video below ..

i never got to play the REmake version so i am excited and this will be a day 1 purchase for me. Hopefully this does well enough to show Capcom people want RE2 remade

That's good news, never got the Remake for the Gamecube since I didn't see the point in buying a console for one game. Not to mention the games were expensive as hell here.

Capcom should already know that.

I barely see a difference lmao. Why would they remaster a PS1 game? How pointless.

Pc gamers (being incredibly powerful human-beings) will most likely mod this well beyond any additions Capcom add.

They aren't. That's actually a Gamecube version referred to by fans as "REmake". This is a port of REmake with better textures and a higher resolution/framerate.

My mistake. So it's a port of a port? Still, how 'riddle-culous'.

It's a port of a remake, a pretty good remake fyi.

One of the top 5 games in the survival horror genre, easily.

Now if I could just get Silent Hill: Shattered Memories HD.

Suprising considering the game didnt sell on gamecube and "apparently" that was the reason they ditched horror in RE4.

"This was one of my first games on PS1"

Yes but this is the gamecube version they remasted, with that horriblly confusing level design that had nothing to do with the ps1's version map.

What makes the Gamecube version a remake and not a port? Updated textures?

They added/redid a lot of stuff, new bosses/areas ect ect (like you have to burn zombies or they'll comeback). Like the shark area is completely different....and scary..

Sounds like an updated port.

They completely redid all the assets of the entire game and altered large portions of the game, as well as adding several new areas and a brand new boss character named Lisa Trevor. They also added brand new gameplay mechanics like the crimson head zombies, super fast and powerful mutations that occur if you do not blow the head off of a zombie, or burn it's body within a set time from killing it. It was a full remake, that's not even a debatable point.

Its not a port its a remade game. Repeating that it is a port doesn't change the fact that it isn't. The game was REMADE.

@Buckhannah: yep, basic fact. well-said.

though, at ballroom- "scary" in its true sense was and is never the right word, for me. doom3/ or fear got me more "scared" than RE, though, those 3 are all basically the same in my book. silent hill 2 still always pisses me off too much in it's gameplay mechanics.

condemned games actually get me creepin a lot, lol.

@Star0: says anyone with a functional brain who takes ten seconds to look at the psone version and the GameCube version we are getting a port of. Stop trying so hard.

REmake on GC is the best video game remake of all time by far. Glad I can play it on my quad now.

@LexLas: So when's the release date? The Evil Within comes out soon so this game won't be all that interesting, Capcom needs to get it out ASAP...

#22 Posted by KingsofQueens (2207 posts) -

Eh, been there and done that on the Cube.

Good for those who've never played the game
