It looks like Capcom has decided to go "all in" on a Resident Evil 2 remake. I'm a little surprised by this and I'm very curious to see exactly what kind of game they make out of it. Resident Evil 1's remake was a cool game when it came out on the Gamecube, and the PC version is even better, but it carries forward pretty much all the gaming anachronisms that made people complain about the earlier RE games. I beat it gladly on GC but replaying the PC version again was a bit rough.
RE2 was my favorite of the series, but I'm not sure what I'd like to see in an update. Obviously the A/B scenario mechanism I'd love to see come forward, but fixed camera angles, pre-rendered backdrops, and extremely limited inventory I'm not as sure I'd welcome.
