Those who know me know I'm not a gamer, like at all, but I do enjoy me some Resident Evil. Like anyone else who played the seminal first game, it scared me out of my wits, and really showed me the light in terms of what games can put you through. No, it didn't convert me, but I respect the hell out of an entertainment like that.
For those of you who are gamers and enjoy the RE series, you'll be happy to know that Capcom officially announced that RESIDENT EVIL 4 HD is coming to Xbox Live and the Playstation Network this fall. The 2005 game, as well as Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, will be remade in HD as downloadable titles for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at an undetermined date. The games will not feature new elements.
The package will be called "Resident Evil: Revival Selection". I guess they're calling these "upgraded visuals", but they're basically remakes in HD. Nothing wrong with that.
The "plots": As Leon Kennedy, players will explore a town overrun by cultists, mutants and mind-controlled villagers as they unravel the mystery of Resident Evil 4. Also, this release will contain all the bonus content available in previous versions of Resident Evil 4, including the Separate Waysepilogue.
In Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, the year is 1998, three months since the total destruction of Raccoon City and Claire Redfield is still in search of her missing brother Chris. While investigating an Umbrella facility in Paris, Claire is captured and transported to the remote Rockfort Island, where she awaits her death.
Then an inexplicable air raid hits the island, and though this frees Claire, it also accidentally releases t-virus samples and B.O.W.s, which thrust Claire back into the world of survival horror once again. Claire teams up with a fellow inmate Steve Burnside, but insane island commander Alfred Ashford and his evil sister Alexia set their sights on ending the duo with their sick and demented games.
