With the latest re-release of Capcom’s medium-defining classic Resident Evil 4 fresh on the mind, it’s bizarre and perhaps a bit sad to think on how few games have proven genuinely worthy of its design legacy. Even now, more than a decade after its original release, there is still only one game that has managed to truly take up the torch passed on by Leon’s misadventures through the macabre European countryside: Dead Space 2.

Could Resident Evil 7 be coming soon?
Happy National Siblings Day!

Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps is the next entry in the Resident Evil series.
Recently, Capcom asked fans if they wanted to see a Resident Evil 2 Remake... and unsurprisingly the outpouring of support was overwhelming. After only 2 weeks, Capcom has given the okay to start development on the project.
One of the most fascinating things to watch as a gamer is the phenomenon of Speedrunning. For those of you who don't know, Speedrunning is exactly what it sounds like; playing a game as fast as possible, usually by exploiting glitches or playing the game to perfection. Twice a year GameDemosArchive and Speedrunslive put on a charity speedrunning marathon to Doctors Without Border and Prevent Cancer Foundation.
Most games tend to follow a linear narrative that unfolds from the perspective of a single protagonist. Once in a great while, more ambitious developers will attempt to weave together a narrative by spreading the threads out across multiple perspectives. Seeing the action play out from multiple pairs of eyes can add a fascinating layer of complexity to a story, as these 7 games demonstrate better than any to have come before or since.
Capcom has announced that the once GameCube exclusive is now being ported to almost all platforms.
