Remake Resident Evil 2!

At this time nine years ago....

Leon was still passed out from drinking too much because his girlfriend dumped him
Claire was racing to Raccoon City to find her brother
Ada was probably doing something top-secret
Sherry was trying to not get eaten by a zombie
Kendo was probably still camping out with his shotgun in his gun shop
Ben was probably sleeping in that damn cell

Or in other words, the puddle of love which is Resident Evil 2 happened... and I think we should celebrate =D

re2 locals in RE:UC? [Sep. 3rd, 2007|11:51 pm]
Remake Resident Evil 2!

Ok, so I was checking out the new stuff they posted on the official RE website and I found some interesting news.  Apparently locals from RE2 are going to be used in UC (and I hope they aren't being half-assed and just saying that cause the RPD and Raccoon City are in the RE3 part).  Anyway, I know this doesn't strictly concern RE2, but I figured you guys might be interested in knowing that RE2 is, infact, being represented in UC (although very half-ass'edly, I must admit).  My guess is that there will either be cutscenes in these locals, or they are some of the locals where you can play as Wesker.  Any other ideas anyone?

Remake Resident Evil 2!

I only caught wind of this about ten minutes ago while browsing another community, but decided to come and join up and put my two pennies into the proverbial jar. The second Resident Evil game was one of the most popular out of the whole PS generation franchise selling "4.96 million copies on the PSX version alone" compared to the original game which, including the remake, has only sold around 4million.

What is the flaming point in remaking one game twice? People who have bought the original and the remake aren't going to be interested. Those who have bought the remake may feel cheated as they will have spent good money buying a game only for it to be upgraded and combined with others for, most probably, the same price. Talk about flogging a dead horse with the whole 'Spencer Mansion' thing. I have no qualms against Resident Evil 1 or the current remake (though I haven't yet played the remake). Perfectly good games. I even have the book.

Surely CAPCOM should use their heads and put two and two together on this. The game which made them a hell of a lot of money a decade ago is in major need of a face-lift. People are waiting with open, drooling mouths for it. All of the protagonists (Ada too) are extremely popular. Just look at the fan-bases for Leon and Ada. It would be a lot wiser to spend less time investing money on a lost cause and to pour a small amount into something people actually want to be remade.

Unless, of course, they know what they're doing. Unless they plan to release a remake for two separately? But what would be the point in 'Umbrella Chronicles', if that were the case? What is the point in it now?

I agree, to not remake Resident Evil 2 would be a huge mistake. Why leave it out when every single other game is being remade? That isn't fair.

I've actually never gotten a chance to play it yet, because I can't find it in any local video game exchange stores, and I can't find a decent priced copy on Ebay. However, it looks pretty awesome, and it's obviously a critical part of the series. I can't understand why Capcom would refuse to remaster it.

I'm with you guys on this, definitely.

Re2 is a key plot point in the Resident Evil Series! [Aug. 16th, 2007|11:26 am]

To remake the others and not Re2 is a BIG mistake. Re2 is not only my favorite, but it also introduces key characters: LEON, ADA, CLAIRE, and SHERRY! How the hell would they not consider it?

We need to get more people out there to join us brokenbullet!

Remake Resident Evil 2!

I forget the exact date, but sometime this summer I learned that Resident Evil 2 was not going to be represented in Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles.  Needless to say, I was devastated; Resident Evil 2 is one of my favorite installments in the series and I wanted to see it in full Wii-graphics glory.  Capcom did such a great job remaking the original and 3 is practically being remade (as it is present in Umbrella Chronicles), so I don't see why Resident Evil 2 should get a full blown remake, and I think you should join me in my cause.
